Customer Testimonials

  • Dave was really easy to work with and we are very happy with our new home.

    John Renner
  • Cove Builders did a great job remodeling my bathroom. Everything (shower, sink, faucets, wall & floor tiling, lights, commode, etc.) functions well and looks professionally done. This bathroom is probably the nicest room in my home now.

    Wayne Lin
  • We are completely satisfied with Cove Builders. Our home was completed in November of 2014. We were living 1000 miles away during the construction but kept well informed of the progress and received photos of the home being built. Cove builders delivered on every promise they made. The quality is outstanding and we would highly recommend to others.

    Brenda Frye
  • Cove Builders, Dave & Janet Boender, along with their close knit team of building professionals did an outstanding job with our 2 bathrooms and 1 utility room remodeling projects. From start to finish on a daily basis, Dave & Janet kept us well informed as to whom would be coming over to the house to perform various tasks and components of the work. They also made sure that any construction mess was cleaned up before the end of the day. Cove Builders are not the cheapest nor the most expensive general contractor you can find, but, if you want the utmost quality and care without any worries, we highly recommend them.

  • I have been working with Dave Boender of Cove Builders since 2007.  From the first time I met Dave, I knew he was the contractor I wanted to hire to build my retirement home here in Cumberland Cove.  I believe the most important trait in any business professional is trust and honesty – Dave delivers in spades!  We provided Dave our plans and he was extremely responsive to our schedule as we were out of State and had limited time to meet with him.  We decided to go with a “Green Build” – the very first in Putnam County.  We are extremely pleased with the quality and more importantly, our very low (even through the coldest winter in Tennessee in 30 years) utility bills.  Throughout the building process, Dave always did what he said he would do, and again exhibited flexibility as we made changes along the way.  Even after the home has been completed, Dave has taken care of those small fixes professionally and promptly.

    Select Cove Builders – you will have a quality finished product and a stress free construction process….and you will also make a good friend!
