TOM McCOLM

President

Tom has over 15 years experience in the construction business and started TM Builders in 2009. As President, Tom focuses on teaching and living by the company’s core values to ensure that every client experience is exceptional. “There are three core values I strive to maintain,” says Tom. “Transparency, Honesty, and Quality. Transparency is very important to how we do business. Clients know exactly what to expect with no surprises or hidden costs. Up-front and honest partnerships benefit everyone. Clients know they can ask anything and will receive an honest solution-based response. And finally, our quality is what customers remember us by. Doing it right the first time is far better than spending more to fix or change it later”.
