Our clients say:

In this era of instant communication—email, instant messages, Facebook, Twitter, text messages—one form of communication that takes effort, thought and time, is the personal letter. While the final payment on a project keeps Mountain West Construction's business engine running, it’s the letters of appreciation that fuels Erich's enthusiasm and love for his work.

Steve B, Hendersonville NC

Mountain West Construction was the best home construction experience we've had! I will use them again and highly recommend them.

Gary K, Flat Rock NC

It was a pleasure doing business with Erich and his team. Erich's design ideas complimented my ideas which led to a beautiful project. We love our new kitchen, dining room, living room, stairway and deck. Erich is knowledgable and easy to work with. I would highly recommend Mountain West Construction. We had a great experience.

Bart S., Hendersonville NC

Mountain West came in on time and on budget! Erich was very cognizant of taking the necessary steps to reduce the impact of a large construction project on our household routine. We would recommend Mountain West for any home construction project.

Jeff & Becky G , Hendersonville NC

Becky and I feel very lucky to have found such a quality contractor such as Mountain West to do our remodeling project.

Joanne J., Nashville TN

We were extremely pleased with the quality of craftsmanship and attention to detail. Eric Leatham met with us several times- before, during and after completion of the project. We were out of town during most of the construction and appreciated Eric's oversight. We were kept well informed and the project was completed on time.

Peter D, Flat Rock NC

Prior to retiring, I was a custom home builder in Florida. Erich's team performed up to the expectation of my hyper-critical eye. Good communication, with competent skilled craftsmen, allowed every stage of the project to complete smoothly and successfully.

NCG, Brevard NC

Mountain West Construction just completed a whole house renovation for us in Brevard, NC and my husband and I are thrilled with the results. As difficult as it can be to monitor a project from a distance, Mr. Leatham took the worry out of our hands and was able to complete our project despite a tight schedule and budget. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a contractor - for anything from building a new home to remodeling and whole house renovations. Owner, Erich Leatham and his highly skilled staff are professional, courteous and efficient - a great value. Beyond the expected, Mr. Leatham has a design sensibility that was extremely helpful in guiding some of our decisions.

David M., Hendersonville NC

We found Erich to be a good communicator throughout the planning, contracting and work schedule. His suggestions on the design side of our remodeling project gave us a more functional living environment that is enjoyed daily. We experienced no unpleasant surprises and have recommended Mountain West to our friends.

Carlagene K., Hendersonville NC

Mountain West Construction's staff and installers were professional, on time, and neat. They did a great job with the design of the project by blending the remodel with the original structure. They were helpful and I appreciated all of their recommendations. I loved the high quality of work that was done.

Greg G., Brevard NC

We contracted Mountain West Construction to complete an extensive renovation of our mountain home. Despite severe time and financial constraints the project was completed on time and within budget. The owner, Erich Leatham, and his crew were professional, courteous, and exceptionally skilled. What sets them apart, however, is Mr. Leatham's creativity and design input. He has an eye for detail and either suggested ways for us to improve on our original plan (our request) or caught potential design problems before they occurred. Our home looks even better than we had hoped for and we are thoroughly happy with the result. They are the best in the area - hands down. We recommend them to everyone

Katy M., Hendersonville NC

Mountain West Construction is the most professional building/contracting company I've experienced. They built my house and managed the entire project from start to finish with zero "hicups". The owner and his crews are very friendly and take pride in their work. They are professionals, craftsman. They worked on the project as if it was their own home and suggested changes that enhanced the end result. I didn't have to think about it, I knew my home building project was in great hands, and it was. Now I'm enjoying my "dream home" because of the care they took to bring my dream to life. I recommend them to anyone who desires top notch quality, friendly and sincere service and a no-hassel experience from start to finish!

Anon, Flat Rock NC

Planning, and execution of modifications has really been excellent. The making of a loft into a "room" was accomplished in a superb manner, as was the placing of a garage immediately adjacent to the house. The garage fit into the design of the house, is very serviceable, and has been a great addition. Erich, and the workers have always demonstrated professional actions, and been pleasant in communications. Though our communications are limited, we consider Erich a friend, as well as our building "go to person."

Glenn B., Flat Rock NC

We have used Mt. West Construction for a range of different projects, both inside and outside our home, over the last ten years. The general quality of innovation and workmanship have been excellent.

Mary S., Asheville NC

This was my first experience with a remodel and I had heard many horror stories. As a widow doing it aloneI was particularly apprehensive. Erich and his crew went above and beyond my expectations. The job site was always clean and they were sensitive to my many questions. They made a house I liked into a home I love. I would recommend them to anyone.

G. Linkous, Hendersonville NC

In all my dealings with Erich, I have found him to be honest and ethical. He is a highly competent contractor and takes a great deal of pride in everything that he does.

C.Basile, Fletcher NC

Without reservation, I can say that Erich and his crew have done a superb job on all projects that I have worked with them on. Erich is a meticulous contractor with an eye for detail. Regardless of the complexity of the installation, I can be assured that Erich will complete the job in a timely manner and to my satisfaction.

M/M Leon, Hendersonville NC

All pre-construction consultations and estimates were done courteously and professionally; all work was done promptly and carefully. And we believe all the jobs were fairly and competitively priced. Perhaps most important, the quality of the work was admirable.

S. Cook, Hendersonville NC

I found working with Mr. Leatham to be a very pleasant experience in addition to the fact that as a contractor, he is conscientious, reliable and quality-oriented.

M/M Stokes, Saluda NC

In addressing the integrity of Erich Leatham, we are very positive in our assessment of his dependability, the high quality of his work, and his attitude in endeavoring to please those by whom he is employed. We have hired him for various projects for which his appraisals have been fair and the quoted figures upheld. We’ve been totally satisfied with his performance.

F. Jones, Asheville NC

In the execution of our project we found Erich to be both quality and cost conscious. He was interested in delivering us exactly what we wanted with the best quality possible. He was also very innovative in problem solving and suggesting practical solutions to the inevitable difficult situations renovation projects present.
Erich was organized, both as it related to the actual work on the job, and also in records-keeping and cost containment. I felt he was always honest and above board with us financially and treated our money with respect.

MD, Flatrock NC

Erich Leatham, owner of Mountain West Construction has extended and remodeled my kitchen plus various projects in other parts of my home. I recommend him to anyone who needs re-construction of their home. He’s dependable, capable, charges fairly and has a stable personality.

Dr. and Mrs. Richard B., Hendersonville NC

Our experience with Mountain West was very satisfactory in every aspect of the project; from early planning to completion. Erich, his Project Manager, and employees are all professional and trustworthy. We left the house twice for a few days with full confidence and trust in their integrity, honesty, and reliability to continue the work. We are very satisfied with the completed project.

Shirley T., Flatrock NC

Remarkable craftsmanship and attention to detail. They were sensitive to our concerns about security, dust, timeline, etc. I would recommend Mountain West Construction to anyone who wants the job done right.

Beth G., Hendersonville NC

We love our new master bedroom and bath remodel. Erich and his crew did a marvelous job. Erich’s redesign of the existing deck, which now connects to the new, cozy porch off the master bedroom, gives us an additional outdoor living space that has become my favorite summer hangout.

R. Redmon, Flat Rock NC
