When general contractors need the job done right...

How we do it?

The company’s success is a direct result of our ability to provide personal, hands-on service to our clients, no matter what size job. We staff each of our projects with what we feel are the best field superintendents and skilled mechanics in our industry.

Commercial Builders, Inc. was the first contractor in the S.E. Florida region to hold the Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industries - International (AWCI) EIFSMART Contractor Certification. EIFSMART is a distinct industry certification given to contractors who have shown a committment to and completed the required education regarding EIFS installations, as well as passing an objective test. They must also maintain a mix of EIFS certified employees. The EIFSMART Contractor Certification is renewed annually if AWCI minimum requirements are met and maintained.

CBI is committed to providing the most competitive and efficient service in our industry. Our team is professional and dedicated to completing all projects on time and within budget.
