"It's a rare occasion that you'd hear a homeowner state that a renovation project came in on time and on budget. But that is exactly what Barden Home Builders did, they "completed the project ON TIME and ON BUDGET", and we couldn't be more delighted with our second story addition."

"I can't speak highly enough about Barden Builders. We hired them to remodel our kitchen and they way over delivered! The planning process was straightforward and the project came in on budget and faster than planned!"

"The team at Barden and all the sub-contractors they used were amazing and worked with us well. The crews were professional and worked diligently to get our job done. We are super proud of the outcome and would highly recommend Barden for any new build or remodel."

Kim & Woody W.

Tampa, FL

"Outstanding! We hired Barden Home Builders twice, first on a smaller project, and about a year later for a large scale kitchen/living space renovation. From start to finish, the team was so nice and easy to work with! They were always professional and thorough, and they earned our complete trust."

Elizabeth T.

"Barden finished our renovation 3 weeks ahead of schedule and on-budget, all while we were living at the residence with young kids. They regularly went out of their way to minimize the impact of construction on our family and day-to-day lives. When it comes down to it, this is a contractor who truly cares about their clients."
