What People Are Saying About Sands Construction

  • Tom & Connie
    We would recommend Sandy Barton without reservation as an exceptionally talented home builder. Sandy was very thorough in explaining the various steps in building and he clearly laid out our options along the way and the costs associated with each choice.

  • Susan
    I have built a home from the ground up, have remodeled one home twice, remodeled two condos and another home. Not one experience has come close to being as done as, has this one. Sandy is just excellent at managing people and projects. He seems extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of homebuilding.
  • Mitch
    Sandy assisted from the very beginning. Helping to evaluate design ideas and options, develop preliminary and final pricing to help us achieve our goals in a very expert professional manner. Sandy's on site skills may be his strongest asset. Unlike other island contractors who shift the project off to a site guy after the contract is signed, Sandy's in full time, hands on management. The results clearly show it.
  • Susan
    We hired him not because he was the least expensive, (he wasn't) but because his proposal was by far the most detailed and comprehensive. And we were both drawn to him as a human being who was forthright and personable and honest, not to mention a hard worker.
  • Marshal
    In my 69 plus years, I have worked with many contractors, both residential and commercial. Never in any of these building projects have I enjoyed the camaraderie I have with Sands Barton. He is the epitome of a person who strives for the very best in all he does and through his self discipline, encourages and demands excellence in those people he brings to a project.
