A rare combination. A company small enough to provide personal attention and large enough to handle the most demanding remodeling or new construction projects. A business where words like honest, trustworthy, professional, results-oriented are at the heart of the operation.
Waldenwood was founded on the philosophy of providing a unique combination of abilities not commonly found in the industry...skilled craftspeople...high standards of ethics and integrity...a strong sense of design...and extraordinary commitment to serving our clients.
Our mission is to present our clients, with an exceptional design and construction experience, which we call Signature Service.

Jim Miller, Director of Operations, decided to have some fun working for Waldenwood after retiring from decades of being a school principal.
