Previously the owners of homes in Houston and the San Francisco Bay Area, we were pleasantly impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of our Fulton home in Lincoln. Most importantly, Steve Fulton personally ensured his availability whenever we had questions or needed assistance regarding our home. We wish we could take our Fulton home and Steve with us if we ever leave Lincoln!
With Fulton, building a home was a delightful and totally successful endeavor. Construction went smoothly and proceeded in a timely, organized fashion.
In all of the remodeling phases we consistently received very high quality. We’ve been very pleased with everything that they have done. Steve, you have a very great crew, a very wonderful crew. Great job. Keep it up!
The quality is above reproach with Fulton Construction … Steve was wonderful about assuring us that we were on task. It’s all about people … Fulton has a great group to work with.
