Eric  Leatham

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 is the letters of appreciation that fuels Erich's enthusiasm and love for his work.

David Lyles Anne Calby, FLAT ROCK NC
We could not be happier with the beautiful kitchen renovation that Mountain West Construction did for us. Starting with Eric, every member of the Mountain West team is a talented professional committed to doing excellent work. Throughout the lengthy project, they kept us informed and continually consulted with us to make sure we knew what to expect and were satisfied with the work. We are delighted with the outcome of their work.

Steve & Jana Edgington, Flat Rock NC
A previous contractor referred us to Mt. West and said they were the only company they would trust as a referral. Mt West met that expectation. They spent time discussing the project and would return calls. We were given different options in materials and design with cost effectiveness in mind. The workers were on time and readily available for discussion during the project. They were trustworthy to come into our home when we were not there. The work site was clean each day when the workers left. We were pleased with the work and have continued to use Mt. West for further projects. I appreciate that they are willing to take on smaller jobs that some companies would not consider.

Bernard Delille, Fletcher NC
We were very satisfied with Erich and his team. We love our renovated kitchen, and we appreciated the good ideas brought by the team. If we have another project for our home we will certainly call them.

James Rudisill, Hendersonville NC
Erich's entire crew was very professional, showed up on time and did the little extra things to make sure the job was done properly. Hat's off to Bill, Josh, Mark and the Big Guy whose name I can't recall but he knows who he is. I would highly recommend this company and would use them again.

Dr Art Shinn, Flat Rock NC
It has been an excellent experience having Mountain West Construction add an addition to our house. The project was well managed and never was an issue from day 1 to the completion. Would highly recommend.

Lynn Cooper, Hendersonville NC
Mountain West Construction did a remodel for us that was professional, prompt , and an overall pleasant experience. They gave us ideas that improved our ideas and are so pleased with the results. We would recommend them to any of our friends!

Mary Johnson, Hendersonville NC
I was a little concerned at first about hiring a contractor. I have never hired one before and I have heard horror stories of cost overruns, delays and the like. However, Erich and his team were fantastic. They were professional, courteous, on time and their work was terrific. I absolutely love my new kitchen. I highly recommend Mountain West Construction for all of your renovation needs!

Mary Smitherman, Laurel Park NC
Erich, Just wanted to let you know how much we have enjoyed our kitchen and the front portion of our house. The flow of the kitchen space is ideal for our life style. We enjoyed fixing our "prepacked" (remember I don't really cook) Thanksgiving meal around the island, dined at the dining room table and lounged on the back patio afterwards. Can't think of a better way to spend a family day. Hope your holiday was as wonderful as ours. Thanks for your help.

J. Gunderson, Hendersonville NC
Becky and I were very happy with our remodel project and the professional manner in which Erich and his crew performed. Job was completed in a timely manor. Job site was cleanly maintained and we were very pleased with the quality of craftsmanship. Would highly recommend Mountain West Construction! Jeff

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.

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.

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.

N. Pace, Hendersonville NC
I would definitely recommend Mountain West Construction and have done so with referrals to my friends and neighbors. Mountain West redid my kitchen and master bath and both turned out beautifully. I had no idea what I wanted going into the remodel but Erich helped with design, layout and picking the best materials. The entire process was smooth and they finished a few days early and right on budget.

hclinkous, Hendersonville NC
This was our second project with Mountain West and we are very pleased! Not only is their work excellent , they were very accessible when we had questions and listened to our concerns. The workers are very respectful and cleaned up at the end of each day and were on on time - very reliable. We highly recommend Mountain West for new or remodeling projects!

Nancy Gorgone, 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.

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.

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. Weve been totally satisfied with his performance.

Frank & Shirley, Hendersonville NC
We want you to know how much we appreciate your help in getting us into our new home on time. We know it was only through your hard work that this happened. Stop in when your in the area, we'd love to stay in touch.

M. Mausolf, Flatrock NC
I want to compliment your workmanship, dedication, tenacity, organizing ability, on time performance and overall cooperative attitude. I would be pleased to give you a good recommendation should you need it. It has been a true pleasure working with you.

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. Hes 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
Can't let any more time go by without telling you how impressed we are with the men of your crew who were here yesterday. As you no doubt know, they were polite, considerate, hard working, and incredibly neat. All hallmarks of MWC and among the reasons you are so busy.
