About Us

Our philosophy is simple.

Our goal is to review and understand the project from top to bottom - before any hammer hits the nail. We pride ourselves on careful consideration of each project, choosing to do fewer projects better, rather than pushing our more work, sacrificing quality and reputation. All our components are priced fairly and each project is completed in a timely, results-based manner.

We have been well established with a 48 year track record and 8 points that we practice daily.

  1. Committed to service and customer satisfaction
  2. Competitive prices
  3. Great references from previously satisfied customers
  4. Clean and safe work sites
  5. Properly insured and licensed company with a clean record
  6. Small repair and home maintenance services available
  7. Patient, understanding and professional workers who complete jobs with honesty and integrity
  8. Friendly, knowledgeable team who is eager to bring solid, sturdy craftsmanship to your project.

We pride our self in sending neat, clean, family-oriented carpenters and handymen to your home. The kind we would want in our home too.

Our Story

Gaines Construction Co., Inc. was established in 1970 by Raymond E. Gaines, Sr. During the early stages of our business, and for many years afterwards, Ray Gaines, Sr. did all the work himself. We're happy to say we've grown since then, able to hire a specialized team of excellent workers, but we still maintain the commitment to quality our company was founded on. Many of our first clients, or their children, will call us for their projects or refer us to friends. We're proud to say we've truly achieved customer loyalty.


Our Expert Team

Today, Ray Gaines Sr., personally coordinates and guarantees all the work. We're grateful to have several highly skilled carpenters on our team. Our entire staff is comprised of quality-oriented professionals whose main objective is to complete your project in a timely fashion, meeting all needs and requirements. We're always at your service to answer any questions or concerns you may have during the course of the project, and our office and/or personnel will handle all issues quickly and professionally. At Gaines Construction, we understand the importance of good communication between the architect, contractor and client, necessary for a smooth and successful project.
