We’re a general contractor with extensive experience in both residential and commercial work. Since founding XL Builders in 1999, we’ve completed nearly 500 projects ranging from single room renovations to million dollar custom homes. 

If you were to hire XL, your project would be personally managed by one of the Owner/Partners. On any given day, either Chris Moore or Michael Howley can be found on-site managing the team of subcontractors and craftsman selected to work on your project. Chris and Mike are personally invested in the outcome of every job.

We believe that the quality of our work speaks for itself. All of our business is generated through referrals and return clients. More  than 30% of our annual income comes from additional projects for existing clients.  We’re not about memberships and awards. Our recognition comes when our client says, “We love it! It’s exactly what we wanted.”

We would encourage you to talk to our clients and to ask them what it’s like to work with XL Builders.

XL Builders is registered in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.



“I have worked with XL Builders for many years on many projects, and without hesitation, I highly recommend XL Builders. They are very easy to work with, flexible, fair, friendly, reliable, relaxed. They ask appropriate and important questions. They give the customer exceptional service, always bending over backwards to make their customers happy. They work well with all client personality types. Unlike many contractors, they treat architects with respect and as team members. They are problem solvers, always working with the owner and the architect to find the most appropriate solution. More than anything, they sincerely care about the design outcome, and they strive to provide the client with the best product every time for a price which is fair and competitive.”

"We wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and the countless subcontractors you directed to complete our project.  Successfully completing a complete gut and rebuild in four short months, over the Thanksgiving, Christmas Holidays and a record breaking blizzard, was a monumental task.  Throughout the renovation, we felt confident that any recommendations or guidance you offered was based on your thorough review and understanding of the issue while always maintaining the highest quality standards feasible.  You kept everything on track, ensuring decisions were made in order to fit the time line you envisioned.  Audrey and I agree that without your professionalism and expertise, our new home would not have met our budget, schedule and most importantly, our expectations."

“I am so glad we chose to work with XL Builders on our house renovation. XL always used the highest quality subcontractors, all of whom did outstanding work. Moreover, having a partner at the construction site was like having a full time designer available to make the many important on-the-spot decisions that comes with any construction project. We just love our new home!”

“We love the house that XL Builders built for us. We told them that we wanted our new home to feel like a vacation house in Vermont … and they made it happen. We thought the project might be stressful but as it turned out, it was really a lot of fun to watch our new home take shape!”
            — Joyce J.

“Our experience with XL Builders has been outstanding. XL provided valuable input throughout our renovation, from the design phase through completion. Our home was completely gutted, expanded and rebuilt. Our new home is beautiful and the quality of the workmanship is excellent. XL Builders has continued to be responsive to any minor issues and new features we have added since we moved in over two years ago.”
