About CORE Industries, Inc.

Our President, Kevin Barber, began his career in construction as a framer 20 years ago. Since that time, he has worked in various trades and management roles within the building industry, including general contracting and project management for some of the largest builders in the PNW. Kevin’s extensive knowledge of the roles of our many different trades allows our team to develop a realistic schedule, which our trades can adhere to.

Having first-hand knowledge of the scope of work to be accomplished by each trade affords Core Industries the ability to know what to expect professionally and physically from each person working alongside us. The priority of the Core team and each trade working with us is to produce the best product possible, with an unmatched customer experience.

Our goal as a company is to provide our customers with an enjoyable building experience, which includes outstanding quality, as well as consistent communication. We look forward to meeting with you, listening to the ideas you have for your home, and helping you turn those ideas into reality.
