"Family owned and the service is unbelievable."

Hiwassee Builders is one of Athens’ best businesses. Family owned and the service is unbelievable. Their prices are usually lower than than other suppliers, but you get all the great service too. I built a new home recently and Hiwassee Builders helped me out of many jams. From the sales counter to their delivery department, all I can say is you guys are great.

"These guys were incredible..."

We recently had a co-worker involved in a serious accident resulting in a loss of limb at work. Let me just say, these guys were incredible helping us out to get our friend a new deck with a wheelchair ramp in time for his return home. Paint, wood, anything I need in the future, my money will exchange to these great people. So thank you again for all your help. It will never be forgotten.

"Lifetime customer here."

I have done business with these fine folks for over 30 years. We built our last 2 homes with all of our materials coming from Hiwassee. They are very knowledgeable about their products. If you want your order right the first time, this is the place to go. Very good quality and terrific selection of materials for your custom home. Lifetime customer here!
