After nearly fifty years, we decided to build our first home in Columbia, Mo. We purchased a one acre lot in the central southwest area, and interviewed several local contractors, and agreed upon Rod Glidewell. We detailed the specs and costs with Rod; as our project progressed toward any decision juncture, Rod would come to us defining what we had agreed to. Alternatives would be:(A) more detail, more cost: (B) less detail, less cost. We ended the project with a lovely home within our expectations!! We highly recommend Rod Glidewell.

Rod and his crew did a fantastic job on our home remodel/addition. We looked at A LOT of local contractors before finding Glidewell and we could not have been more satisfied. Rod is straightforward, no-nonsense, honest and very dependable contractor who does amazing work. We had several ideas of what we wanted and he worked with us every step of the way to turn our dream into reality with minimal inconvenience and a quick turnaround. If we ever have more work done in Columbia our first (and last) phone call will be to Glidewell Construction. David and Laura Roloff 200 Edgewood Ave.
