TJ Glidden Construction approaches each project with genuine enthusiasm and a sincere sense of pride, exactly like we would if we were building a home for our own family. We steadfastly use only the highest quality skilled craftsmen and subcontractors. From start to finish, we meticulously oversee the building process to ensure that we create your dream home in a manner that not only exudes the highest in design aesthetics and craftsmanship but exemplifies state of the art sustainable material and energy efficient construction.

Every project is buttressed by two generations of Glidden experience. TJ Glidden combines nearly fifty years of construction management education, practical experience and know-how born of hands-on building. We fabricate residential or commercial projects of any size or level of sophistication with unmatched pride and joy.
