What Sets Us Apart
Our homes are characterized by high-quality craftsmanship, and our process revolves around a caring, personalized approach. Here’s what else you can expect from us:
We’ve worked with many of the same subcontractors for decades; some even work exclusively with us. All mirror our focus on quality and attention to detail.
Being a family-owned operation, we treat clients with the same level of care and attention that we treat each other. When you call, text or email us you’ll get a quick response directly from one of us.
Unlike some general contractors, a member of our leadership team is on-site, working alongside our talented subcontractors to ensure our clients’ vision is met.
We’ve been known to go the extra mile for clients, for example attending multiple town meetings to get approval on behalf of rural homeowners.
We promote long-lasting relationships with clients, encouraging them to call us for home advice and help no matter how long it’s been since project completion.
Clean Job Sites
We tidy up our job sites every day, with a more thorough clean every week. Clean job sites reduce waste and allow for greater efficiency, saving both materials and time. Our clients (and their neighbors) appreciate this, as does everyone working on the site.
We offer energy-efficient solutions, like spray foam and LED can lights, that help our homeowners save money while doing good for the planet.
In 1982, Gary Karls transitioned from a career in commercial construction to launch Quality West Construction, a Mt. Horeb-based home construction company with a focus on building high-quality, energy-efficient rural and suburban homes with superior craftsmanship.
Quality West Construction, or QWC, quickly became a family-operated company, as sons Ken and Kurt joined the QWC team full time. Now, they and Gary — along with Nicole — form a small yet mighty team, bolstered by a network of trusted subcontractors. Together, they’ve established a proven track record of bringing clients’ home dreams to life.
