Our History

Rob Purvis began his career in the building industry in a start-up business of residential and commercial construction as well as small residential remodeling projects. He then worked with local contractors as project manager and estimator as well as in sales with Pella Windows and Doors. During his time with one of these contractors, Rob’s interest in residential building inspired him to create their residential department and, in doing so, helped the business become an INC 500 company. It was then that Rob decided it was time to create his own residential construction business. Since then, Purvis Builders and its team of professionals have gained a reputation for their attention to detail, distinguished, high-quality craftsmanship, and their honest, reliable customer service.
