My building experience with the Tolaris Team is exceptional. They are super responsive, communicate very effectively, and the quality of the work has exceeded my expectation. I have built several times never having a positive experience as I have with Tolaris. I highly recommend them.

“The Ricks”, both father and son are very genuine and humble in their services. I just happened to meet with Mr. Rick, Sr as of today and he’s a very professional and respectful gentleman. He’s very knowledged, informative & guides / helps you with honesty. I highly recommend this excellent builder compared to all those bigger builders out there who play monopoly.
