Full Service Design and Renovation
Powell Construction is a full service design and remodeling contractor, located in Corvallis, Oregon. Since 1990 we have been designing spaces that reflect the vision and lifestyle of our clients. Our focus is creating an experience for you that smoothly transitions from the initial design through to the construction and realization of your project. We believe that function and aesthetics can be joined to create an entirely unique and livable space, a space designed especially for you.
Pride in Workmanship
At Powell Construction, we like to go home at the end of the day feeling proud of what we’ve accomplished. A professional remodeling and construction crew, close supervision, and top quality customer service all make Powell Construction a general contractor that you can count on. We make sure your kitchen, bathroom, or addition is built to meet our high standards. After all, you will be our next reference.
We are proud to support local businesses and reduce our carbon footprint by buying local. Our cabinets are built locally right here in the Mid-Willamette Valley. Our custom cabinets are far superior to those offered by most companies. And we’re not just saying that. No space is wasted in filling gaps with space fillers. We do not spray our cabinets with a lacquer, but rather, use a conversion varnish that is both water and chemical resistant. Other important features include dovetailed wood drawer boxes, wood shelf edges, and full extension soft close guides.
We take the extra steps in Remodeling
- Our workmen and subcontractors are polite and courteous.
- Security is an important consideration, especially in a remodeling project. To set your mind at ease, access to your home will always be controlled.
- Protecting your home from dust during construction is a top priority. We make a sincere effort to keep dust contained in the work area.
- We provide floor protection to keep your existing floors from getting damaged.
- During construction we can roll in a temporary sink for your convenience.
- We maintain an orderly job site. After all, this is your home.
A Contractor You Can Count On
Tom & Heidi Powell, along with their experienced crew and office staff, provide their customers with the professionalism, service and superior quality you are looking for in a contractor. Their complementary talents, along with a shared passion for turning homeowners’ dreams into reality, have made Powell Construction the premier remodeler in Corvallis and the surrounding area.
Powell Construction is a family owned and operated business. Tom and Heidi met in Switzerland while backpacking through Europe as college students, and eventually married in 1989. He was from Corvallis and she was from the east coast, but that didn’t stop them. After saying their “I dos” they spent a year traveling in Southeast Asia and then returned to Tom’s home town, where Tom started Powell Construction. A family soon followed, a girl and then a boy. As Powell Construction grew, Heidi began managing the business side of things while Tom met with clients, assisted with design, and ran the construction crews. Today they continue to work together, remodeling and building new homes. Tom and Heidi’s two children, Jocelyn and Trent, both went on to graduate from OSU, just like their Dad.
Tom is a lifetime resident of Corvallis and has chosen to build and remodel homes because that’s what he loves to do. His background includes more than 40 years of construction experience, a degree in geoscience/ecology from Oregon State University, and a background in civil engineering.
Heidi manages the Powell Construction office and oversees all customer service. She enjoys the remodeling process and makes sure that our customers are well cared for every step of the way. Heidi has a degree in Business Administration from Boston University and over 35 years of business and remodeling experience.
After getting his master’s degree from Oregon State University, Tom and Heidi’s son Trent joined the family business. He had grown up learning the trade at the dinner table and working summers on the jobsites. Trent applies his myriad talents and experience to his role as Production Coordinator. He is skilled in all phases of construction. Trent does the bulk of the estimating, builds the schedules, and does the day-to-day coordination of the field crew. He is fluent in both 2D and 3D design software and uses his structural experience to work with the designers in solving complicated scenarios. Organized and efficient, Trent is always working hard to ensure that projects come in on time and on budget.
Together, Tom and Heidi value the lifestyle of the Corvallis community and have chosen Corvallis as the place to raise their family. Powell Construction gives back to the community through volunteering and sponsorship of local programs. Our involvement includes the Philomath and Corvallis Chambers of Commerce, City of Corvallis Committee for Citizen Involvement, Old Mill School, Friends of the Family, South Corvallis Neighborhood Association, Willamette Neighborhood Housing Services (WNHS), Corvallis Public Schools Foundation, , and the Center Against Rape and Domestic Violence (CARDV).
