There’s plenty of companies out there that can tackle a new construction. Any number of contractors can turn a one-sink bathroom into a two-sink bathroom or take down a wall here or there. At Sterling Builders, however, our purpose is different.

We want more for you. We want you to have a truly exceptional construction experience, and ultimately, to end up with a space that exceeds your expectations. Every one of our home remodeling or new construction projects is built to last and catered to our client’s style. From a kitchen or bath remodel, to a full-scale custom home build, we are here to help every step of the way.


Whether it’s a new office complex, state-of-the-art lab space, custom home, kitchen remodel, bathroom renovation, or something completely out-of-the-box — we’ve got the know-how to guide you through the new construction process.

Don’t make the mistake of choosing remodeling contractors that are laser-focused on the bottom line. From the very onset, our clients receive a level of individualized attention that is unmatched. No project we undertake is left in the backburner. Nothing is thoughtlessly taken care of. Instead, we take the time to give every detail the attention it so deserves — from the first laid brick down to the last nail.


Our team is there every step of the way to handle pressing deadlines and unique construction challenges. They are ready to be your partner in creating the space of your dreams. Sterling Builders is Gainesville’s premiere home renovation company. Our custom home builders in Gainesville provide a wide range of residential construction services, in addition to commercial construction consulting and build-outs.
