We Selected Cliff Because We Felt His Attention To Detail Exceeded All Others...

My wife and I selected Cliff Maness Construction to build our retirement home after interviewing several companies, both large and small. We selected Cliff because we felt his attention to detail exceeded all others, plus his experience, guidance and assistance was invaluable to us as we had never designed and built a home prior to this one. Cliff made recommendations on items we never would have thought of, which helped us avoid making mistakes down the road. He was ever-present on-site, making sure his attention to detail carried over to the sub-contractors as well. With our home complete, my wife and I now have a house we can hopefully live the rest of our lives in. The house is both beautiful and efficient, as evidenced by the pictures associated on his website. We would both highly recommend Cliff. You will not be disappointed!

Working With CMC Was Wonderful. Great Service.

We have been involved in several building projects over the years. Working with CMC was wonderful. Each month we received a statement showing in detail how much of the project was completed and the amount of money we had spent to-date... Great service. The jobsite was always clean, neat and safe.

He Tried Very Hard To Get Everything We Wanted.

My favorite part was that he came (to the job) very often to see what the guys were doing… He didn’t just leave the guys to work. He was very responsive to everything we asked for and he tried very hard to get everything we wanted.
