A Strong Difference.... Strongfield Contracting


Strongfield Contracting started in 1981 when Les Busfield left his job as a Superintendent for a large framing contractor and started his own general contracting company with another carpenter. He wanted to be his own boss and he wanted to build projects he could be proud of. HeÕd been a carpenter for 10 years building track homes that were built for speed and profit. He was hungry for quality and he wanted to build it.

For the next ten years Les and his partner built and remodeled custom homes around the Valley. They started a frame and trim division to fill a niche in the semi-custom home market that demanded more quality than track homes did. When housing slowed down in the early 90Õs the partners decided to split up. The partner wanted the general contracting division so Les took the frame and trim division. It was a small frame and trim operation with a good reputation and a new client named Monterey Homes. LesÕs wife Debby became his new partner and brought the organization and systems that were needed to grow the business. The housing market exploded over the next 15 years and Strongfield grew and prospered adding additional home builders. They focused on quality and service and their reputation grew.

When the recession began in 2008 construction took a major hit. The Phoenix valley was hit especially hard and new home permits plummeted. By the end of 2009 the frame and trim divisions were closed down and the remodeling division was re-activated. Clients were ready to improve the homes they werenÕt going to sell and there were foreclosures available to fix up and re-sell. Strongfield adapted to the market and formed important partnerships. One of those partnerships included Trent Wightman with Nextage Realty. Trent was looking for a proven builder who could deliver the type of quality and service his real estate clients needed to improve their newly purchased homes. Trent has an extensive background in residential construction and was vested in the construction outcome of his clients' improvements. The partnership met the needs of all involved and continues to this day.
