Remodel and General Contracting/Absentee Owner Services

"General Contracting"

As a licensed, bonded and insured contractor we can take care of all of your construction needs. We can pull permits, "run" projects, hire sub-contractors and also manage funds and pay schedules.

"Absentee Owner Services"

As a landlord myself with several rental properties I understand the importance of having someone honest and reliable looking after my best interest. We can do weekly, bi-weekly or monthly inspections. This includes, but not limited to, flushing toilets, running faucets to keep "p-traps" wet to prevent sewer gases from entering the home, under-cabinet plumbing  inspections, pest control, irrigation system and landscape inspections, house cleaning services and overall security checks of windows and doors. 

We can complete/run projects while you're away too and keep you updated on the progress via email and pictures taken along the way.

RV's (class A, C, 5th wheel & bumper tow), Quads, Side x Sides & Motorcycles

I have a large secure enclosed shop to do repairs and servicing, electronics/accessories/lighting/switches and custom wiring installation. This started out as a hobby for me buying and repairing quads, etc. I have owned several RV's and know how to troubleshoot and fix just about everything on them excluding the drive train (not that I can't, I just don't enjoy it!). I currently own (10) quads and (2) side x sides. I have done lots of custom fabrication, etc. to most of them...I especially like doing this type of work and would enjoy doing it for you too.

About Us

Meet the Owner

Hi, my name is Nick Layman. I live in Cave Creek, AZ with my wife Stacey, two daughters, Zoe and Elain (Lainey) and our five 4-legged family members, Bella, Lucy, Lola, Daisy and our newest addition Tesla, our Nigerian pygmy goat.

Company History

In 1981 I started working in the wholesale electrical and plumbing supply business in Dallas, TX. In 1987 I started an underground irrigation installation/repair company. I quickly built a large customer base through my contacts in the supply business and by word of mouth. Over the next couple of years I branched into electrical and plumbing installation/repair and eventually into fences, decks, carpentry and general contracting services. Shortly after moving to AZ in 2003 I got licensed as a Residential/Commercial Repair/Remodel Contractor AZ ROC 212171

Mission Statement

How many "horror" stories have you heard about shady contractors? Guys who don't show up on time (or not at all) without even the common courtesy to call and let you know? Someone who promises one thing but delivers another? Gives prices or an estimate but hands you a bill that's nothing close to the original quote? Shoddy work? I hear about it all the time, either from my customer's past experiences, on the news, websites, etc. I believe in a fair days work for a fair days pay. I believe in being punctual, my time is important and I know yours is too. I believe above and beyond everything else, honesty is paramount. If there's something I'm unsure about or a project I don't feel capable or comfortable doing, you will be the first to know. I will always do every project I start to the absolute best of my ability and will work hard to gain your trust and confidence. I look forward for the opportunity to prove myself and my abilities and to build a long and lasting relationship.
