What Makes McLain Construction, Inc. Stand Out


Realistic Scheduling:

McLain Construction, Inc. strives to create a realistic schedule and maintain that schedule throughout the entire building process. We are committed to only taking on the number of projects that we know our company can handle at a time to continue to maintain our high standards of quality workmanship, and with a completion date that is on time. This allows owner, Phil McLain, to personally visit the job site daily to ensure that the project is moving on schedule, within budget and quality is maintained.

Unique Focus on Clients:

Developing relationships with our clients is important to our company to enable us to learn the desired outcome of the project, and how the client lives day to day to ensure their project best reflects their lifestyle. Owner, Phil McLain, focuses on communication and building strong and lasting relationships with our clients. See what others are saying about our company in our client’s testimonials »

  • Professionalism
  • Exceed client’s expectations
  • Provide high quality product and service
