What makes us unique?
At Rising Sun Construction, we do things a little differently, and we think it makes a difference to our clients. No matter the size of your project, or the budget of your job, we will always strive to surpass your expectations.

1. Client Management
We're told, time and time again, how much clients appreciate that someone from our company is always reachable. Over the years we've continued to refine our pricing structure. Our current paperwork schedule, contracts, timely change orders and expense tracking help us to communicate costs and budgets effectively. For you, this means transparency and no last-minute surprises!

2. Talented Employees
The Rising Sun Construction crew are employees that live, work and shop in our community. This means that our local team is able to deal with change orders quickly and easily and invested in the entire project's quality and outcome. Our loyal employees are hardworking master carpenters and finishers. Our clients report that our crew is kind, clean, responsive and attentive to details.

3. Job Site Management
We take the stress out of your construction project. We want you to focus on granite choices, paint colors or which room your child is going to claim...not worrying about showing up daily to make sure nothing has gone wrong. We are in constant communication with you, the homeowner. Your input is not an inconvenience to us; it's expected. When your project requires outside experts, your job site manager will seamlessly take care of managing subs.

4. Craftsmanship
If you're looking for a company with integrity that can provide custom, high-quality craftsmanship–we're your guys. We can do any aesthetic, from modern, to split level, to timber frame. We look at our homes as works of art. We think the difference is honestly, just caring. You have to care about the details and always consider yourself accountable. That's what our crew is about. Collectively, we care about all the small details - from straight walls to trim. Even when materials are modest; we install them with the highest craftsmanship .
