Here' what our clients have to say:

"When we started the renovation on our house at 1 Rosa Park we interviewed every major builder in the New Orleans area.  We wanted the best and from the moment Jimmy Crane walked into our house we realized he had the vision, talent and attention to quality and detail we were seeking.  Since then, we have found Crane Builders to be a first class organization.  The quality of the supervision, subcontractors, site cleanliness, and problem resolution  is simply outstanding.  Pride is evident in everything that is done.  One of our major objectives has been to stay on time and budget. Both are carefully communicated and managed so our expectations are always met. 

Lauren and I recommend them without reservation. "

"Crane Builders has been our partner for over 15 years.  During that time, our business has grown tremendously and Crane has had an important role as it relates to our facilities.  Getting it done right the first time within a reasonable amount of time within the scope of our budget has been a factor in continuing our relationship.  Today, we collaborate on over 25 projects per year ranging from a minor modification or repair to a complete facility from the ground up. 

The value of our partnership became evident after Katrina.  We were able to provide vehicles for Crane and with that equipment; they were able to get our locations opened back up quickly.  We were operational at our Kenner Airport location within a few weeks!

Thanks to the excellent service we receive, we are excited about the prospect of continuing our partnership for another 15 years!"

"When we purchased a home in New Orleans that needed remodeling, not knowing the area created a challenge to find a contractor.   We started checking around with friends, business associates, and contacts in the antique and decorating business in the city and the name Crane Builders kept coming up in conversation. We made a call and set up an appointment to meet with them to discuss our plans. Instantly we knew this was the company we wanted to handle this project.  They understood our concept design and they met every expectation we had for the completion of the remodeling. The quality of workmanship was the best we had seen in 20 years in the design business.  We continue our relationship to date and look forward to working with this extraordinary company in the future.  Crane Builders continues to be the high standard that we use to  compare all other contractors and builders for our projects."

"I have used Crane Builders, Inc. for multiple projects over the last twenty years, everything from remodeling bathrooms to construction of an entire house.  I must say that their work is exceptional, but the best endorsement is because of their reliability and honesty.  I have used them exclusively, because I know that the job will not only get done, but more importantly that it will be done right.
