A Vision of Excellence

Lail Builders, Inc. was incoporated in 1983 by Rex Lail with the vision of being a residential building company to serve the Unifour area. It wasn’t long, however, before that vision expanded and Mr. Lail decided to take on some more challenging work in the commercial construction industry. The company grew quickly and by 1990 Lail Builders, Inc. was the full service construction firm that it is today. The financial principles of low overhead and low debt and the importance of client relationships that Mr. Lail envisioned are now the hallmarks of our company. Lail Builders, Inc. is still family owned and operated and ready to serve you today.
