Chris Cotton is everything and more that you look for in a residential builder. Extremely competent, knowledgable and meticulous, Chris guides his clients through the building process with confidence and ease. He answers our questions in a timely fashion and is patient in explaining even the smallest detail. Not only is Chris a delight to work with, but so is every sub-contractor he has introduced to us. He surrounds himself with good, solid people which only increases our confidence and trust. Chris loves his work, is amazingly creative, and holds every aspect of the build to the highest of standards. We are so grateful that our dream of many years is in Chris Cotton's capable hands!

There are many positive attributes we could list about Cotton Builders but there are two that were most important to us. First and foremost, he was a strong advocate for us with subcontractors. He knew what our plans and needs were and he did not let other force their “plans or this is the way WE do it” on us. Secondly, he was always available even after we moved into the house to fix the very few problems with equipment or vendors. Chris and crew of Cotton Builders, Inc are a first class team of professionals that we would recommend without reservations to anyone wanting a quality home built to your specifications.

We are enjoying our new home and your Hayesville throw looks great on the sofa. Thank you both for your thoughtfulness!! Chris, we greatly appreciate the professional job you did on our home and will certainly be happy to recommend your workmanship to other prospective clients. Again thank you.

We love our Cotton Builders home!  After interviewing four builders, soliciting bids from each and reviewing their proposals, my wife and I came away with the knowledge that Cotton Builders was the builder for us.  Chris Cotton was thorough and covered every aspect of our plan.  We were particularly impressed with his reputation in the community.  He is listed on the local banks’ Approved Builders list, and the fact that his framers had been with him for approximately 15 years indicated the stability of his company.

The building process went smoothly, and Chris was there to guide us with our numerous decisions.  He respected our requirements and ensured we received the quality home we desired.  I remember him saying at one point, “I’m not building this house for me.  It’s your home, and I want you to be happy with it.”  How many builders have that attitude? Unfortunately, not many! Needless to say, we are very happy with our home.

Chris was very professional, and I appreciated his dedication to the job and attention to details-the quality shows!  I highly recommend Cotton Builders to anyone building a home.

Thank you for building our beautiful home away from home. It is certainly a lot nicer than we ever imagined it would be.Thank you for being so understanding and patient with all of our questions and concerns.  It's really hard to leave after each stay.
