An Experienced Home Remodeling Company Serving Fort Myers, FL and Beyond
Personalization in Every Project
Turano Builders Inc. thrives because of the recommendations of our satisfied customers. We are 100% committed to bringing our projects in on budget, on time, and with the best value possible, and we have been consistently standing by these values since 1977. Integrity, attention to detail, and rapid response to issues are the defining qualities of our company.
We excel at projects where the owner is involved in the process. Many owners are more comfortable with a contract structure that gives them the opportunity to make modifications and adjustments as their vision becomes a reality. We do many of our projects on a cost plus fee basis with a guaranteed maximum price, allowing maximum flexibility for owner input along with the security of a concise line-item budget. This process is by far the most transparent to the owner, and allows us to select materials and vendors that represent the best value to the owner.
