Financial Stability

Financial Stability

We have been in business since 1971 and have gradually built up our capital resources and creditworthiness so that we can take on large projects other smaller contractors cannot carry. We can bond single projects up to $15 million and have an aggregate bonding capacity up to $20 million.  Our company has never defaulted on a project nor have we ever had a lien placed on one of our jobs. If you contract with us, you can rest assured that we have the financial capacity to man your project, pay our vendors and suppliers, and complete the job on time.

Experience

Experience

Not only have we been in business for 50 years, but our company has also been run by the same family the entire time. Cecil Shatswell founded Western Drywall back in 1971 and was later joined by his two young sons, John and Kevin. John and Kevin are still at the helm of the company today and manage its day-to-day affairs along with a team of estimators and superintendents that also have decades of experience in the construction industry.
