Builder Myths: Home Builders Don’t Use Quality Products

Aug 16, 2019

While this is often true with tract, “cookie-cutter” type builders, Overstreet Builders stands out – even in the custom category of home building.

Our belief is that the materials and details are the most important part of building a house. We have partnered with the best tradesmen over the years and have kept those relationships going, some for several centuries of building! Here is a sample of Overstreet Builders’ partners who work hard to provide our buyers with the best quality around.
