Full Service General Contractors

The bottom line is cost. “Water damage”, “structural deficiency”, “pipe failure”: phrases said when you don’t expect them. Each have invisible price tags. These are problems with unforeseen conditions, insurance implications, and tenant relocation. They are complicated.

We have solved these and other Construction Defect problems for decades, mitigating cost and ensuring completion. As a Seattle startup in 1997, we were found at the center of historic urban development. We sat in the front seat and watched the effect of new product failure, structures hastily built, and irresponsible design- not to mention lawsuits. As our community grew so did the need for expert specialists as comfortable on the jobsite as in the courtroom. Today, as building systems continue to fail, Porter is an established leader in Building Renovation and Construction Defect. Branching into devastating climates and fast growing areas, our diverse team is uniquely equipped to bring order to the chaos. Our portfolio ranges from Plumbing Re-Pipe to Envelope Remediation, Residential and Commercial Remodel, Water Damage Repair, and litigation support to provide a top to bottom answer to our customer’s needs.

Our team, networked throughout Washington, Oregon and Hawaii, tailor solutions, adapting to your project. Our cost experts provide smart estimates for both litigation support and projects. Our seasoned management bring understanding and solutions to AOAO’s, HOA’s and owner groups. Then they collaborate with skilled site teams, bringing to reality a set of specific, targeted repairs. We take ownership in simplifying the complications, harnessing our skills to get it right. 

We know costs and not all of them are financial. Our projects are homes and workspaces, neighborhood fixtures and places of rest. Since the beginning we have taken seriously our slogan, “Building with Integrity”. We have seen the damage caused by negligence and opportunism and take a different road. Porter has chosen to be the solution.


"I would highly recommend Porter Construction for any project. We will always call upon them for any future construction or maintenance needs."
