Strong Values = Quality Work 

We named ourselves after the most famous carpenter in history and we embrace the values of honesty, hard work and doing projects for others like we would like them done for ourselves. We feel it is in the fabric of our company to produce the best quality work for our clients.

"...aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands..." (1 Thessalonians 11)

Our team has been working in Western North Carolina for the past 20 years and they understand the conditions and requirements of the area. They have also worked extensively with the MTAC team of contractors and vendors and know what works best for each situation. MTAC has formed a bond of trust that reinforces quality and value.

After 25 years of working in building and construction we have developed what we believe to be the best system for delivering value and quality to our customers. 

  • We are a transparent company - We are up front with pur pricing, costs, and can explain how we determine budgets for a project. We are never afraid to sit down and explain in black and white how we derive the numbers for your project.
  • We leverage our partners expertise - By carefully selecting our team, MTAC has the ability and skill set to provide a large scope of tasks in house.  Combining our team with the best subcontators in the area give us the fusion of skills that enable MTAC to offer a turn-key solution to any project.  Whether its general construction, HVAC, electrical, plumbing, roofing, and or cabinetry, MTAC has the team in place to match the task.
  • We understand and document your goals - Developing a realistic and thorough understanding of our customers expectations and goals is always our first step. This is the foundation on which we build a successful, quality project.
  • We form long-lasting partnerships with our contractors and suppliers - We have built a long-term relationsip with our partners and suppliers so that they know what we are trying to deliver to our customers. In a sense, we have extended our values and quality control by working with contractors and suppliers who share our concern for our customers.
  • We focus on delivery - Construction can be a complicated process and requires an extrodinary amount of coordination and communication to and between all of the contractors and suppliers. We work at the interface between all the trades and also with our customers. We safeguard your vision for the final product and make sure that all of your contractors are working towards that end. We problem solve issues and make the changes needed to give you the final product you want.
  • We finish the project - Our skilled carpenters will do much of the final work like the trim carpentry. We provide the final quality control and take care of the last details and fixes that inevitably crop up.
