We are known to be one of the most client-friendly construction companies in the industry,” said Kisha.

Company projects range from cosmetic repairs to intensive structural rebuilds. JD Butler is happy when he can save a home. In one instance, Delmarva Building Solutions removed a sub floor, jacked up the house 4 inches, removed the damaged center support beam and replaced it with a new floor joists and sub floor. Then luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring was installed throughout the first floor of the house, providing a realistic look in an affordable, water-resistant and low-maintenance material. “The customer was ecstatic,” JD said.

Delmarva Building Solutions has grown to include 10 full-time employees, with the help of regular and trusted subcontractors when needed. As general contractors, the company can handle plumbing, electrical and HVAC work as well. 

“With plenty of years of new construction experience as well, the company is planning to devote a division to new construction. We have new construction projects set to begin within the next month. All homes are built with the same top tier quality craftsmanship that has made the company a success for so many years. We also work with buyers, sellers and several local realtors on settlement and punch out items. We take pride and have pleasure in bringing buyers and sellers together.

“We specialize in roofing, siding, windows, doors, flooring, kitchen, baths, insulation, drywall, custom painting, additions, decks and patios of stamped concrete, fencing… We do it all and have members of our team who specialize in every area of construction and remodeling,” she continued. 

The Butlers and their team want to help customers realize the full potential of their property. “We take pride in our dedication to exceptional service,” JD said. “We believe that every project deserves our full attention and expertise, no matter how big or small. Our commitment to delivering high-quality results and exceptional customer satisfaction is what sets us apart in the industry. 

“We believe the quality of our work speaks for itself,” Butler added. “That’s why we’re dedicated to providing top-notch craftsmanship on every project, from start to finish.”
