“Hands down the best company I have had the pleasure of working with. Having worked in the construction industry for over 25 years, on 4 different continents, I have dealt with many contractors and it is rare to find a contractor who can tick all the boxes. WL Construction has repeatedly exceeded expectations and is the company I would choose to take with me from project to project.”
Kenton Switzer – Pat’s Auto Supply
“The team at WL Construction consistently exceeds my expectations in both quality of work and customer service. When I am working with them I can confidently walk away knowing that they will do the job right and within budget. I have multiple businesses and do not have time to babysit contractors which makes WL Construction my only choice. The WL team holds themselves to a higher standard than I ever could.”

“They came highly recommended to me, and I was not disappointed! The quality and innovation of WL Construction’s work is second to none, but the main reason I loved working with them was their transparency and excellent communication. They don’t just speak “contractor” and they were very upfront about any changes in the project as it progressed. The result was a smooth project without any hidden surprises.”
Chad Cushway – School District 60
“We have worked with the highly professional WL Construction team for many years on a wide variety of projects.

WL Construction is always able to complete our projects on a timely basis and provide us with reliable cost-efficient solutions.”
Shane Rogers – Rogers Trucking

Ron Kursteiner – Alpine Glass
“I have worked with WL Construction first as a carpenter, then later as a sub-trade after we purchased our business. When we decided to construct a new building, they were at the top of our list. WL worked with us to create a site and building design that was both functional for our business as well as showcasing our products. When we were ready to build for a second time, we didn’t hesitate to call them and would do so again if the opportunity arose.”
