Frank's Philosophy as a Contractor

The contracting business in this day and age - like all businesses - has evolved to levels never seen before. Clients have high expectations of my knowledge of building techniques and standards, municipal and building codes, my ability to design and complete projects that are pleasing to the eye and structurally sound, to stay within tight schedules and tight budgets, to coordinate sub-contracting and building inspections, and to communicate with owners from the beginning of a project to the end.

My professional approach does not stop there, however. In order to complete the picture and turn a project into a team effort, I must earn the trust and respect from my clients with honesty and sincerity.  Keeping appraised of new methods and materials keeps me sharp. Double-checking plans and monitoring progress reduces oversights and errors. Making sure that work is done right the first time demonstrates integrity. Patience, amiability, and a desire to listen to the client's needs and expectations not only avoid mis-communications, but actually makes projects more enjoyable. The result is often a business or personal relationships that extend beyond the completion of the project.

I always hope to bring an additional level of service to my projects that others may not provide, and I appreciate the opportunities that working with different clients brings.

Frank's Background

Frank Borges Jr began work in the construction trade in the Napa Valley during high school in the late 1970's, working for his fathers company during the summers. (Frank Borges Sr still maintains a general engineering contractors license.)  Frank then worked for a builders supply company and two construction firms. He obtained his contractors license in 1987. Following his employers death and the dissolution of his employers company, Frank established a construction firm under his own name.
