Redcastle Builders, Inc. opened its doors to serve the Denver Metro residential remodeling market.  Within the first year of business, founding partners John Nair and Scott Phillips saw tremendous growth not only in residential remodeling, but also in deck construction.  As a result, Redcastle Builders partnered with Cyrus Schoonover of Schoonover Restoration and Construction to oversee the construction and renovation of decks and outdoor living spaces. This partnership has allowed Redcastle Builders, Inc. to provide the best in both indoor and outdoor construction and remodeling projects.


Our mission is to provide professional, honest, creative, customer-focused, and value-based general contracting services in the Denver Metro residential remodeling market.  What does this mean to us?

We view each project as a unique partnership between ourselves and our clients. We listen to our customers and work with them to accomplish their construction, design, and remodeling goals.

Redcastle Builders'


One of the highlights of Redcastle Builders’ portfolio, that exemplifies our values, was a remodeling project recovery. We provided a bid to remodel a basement for a potential customer in June, 2018. The customer loved our ideas and scope, but decided to select a different contractor whose bid was only a few hundred dollars less than ours. In August, we received a call from this customer asking if we could take over the project as very little had been done since she had signed with the other contractor. We gladly took over the project and successfully implemented a beautiful basement remodel within the schedule and budget. This project further validated our view that there are not enough contractors in the Denver area who care enough about their customers and their customers’ visions to ensure that projects get done right.
