Certified quality construction for your peace of mind



I wanted to take time to send a big thank you to Jason and his team for doing an outstanding job on our new bathroom. This was a challenging job as our house was built back in 1930, so as you can imagine there isn’t a straight angle to be found. Jason and his team totally gutted our bathroom and took my wife’s design to completion. The craftsmanship and attention to detail was something special. With all jobs there are challenges that inevitably come up, but Jason along with Joffery, one of his main guys, were there every time to address them and make them right.

The outcome of the job was that it exceeded our expectations. From the real barnboard walls, gorgeous cabinets, and the most beautiful walk in shower you can imagine, we couldn’t be happier.
We are now looking forward to working with Han-Cor on our next project this coming fall, when we will be asking Jason and his team execute on my wife’s new design or our bedroom which is attached to this new beautiful bathroom. We can’t wait.

So, from the two us we want to thank Jason and Joffery for delivering on this beautiful project.

In March of 2012 Han-Cor Construction began what is hopefully my last of 3 new houses I've built over the years. Seven months later we moved into a most amazing home.  Jason's building practices set him apart from many in the industry. The end result is a quality build home that is incredibly energy efficient.  From how he wraps the home, to insulation practices, dehumidification prior to drywall, and final trim & finishing, this is a builder that takes pride in his work. One ear later we've had no bail pops, no creaking floors, and have experienced heating/energy costs of just 67 cents per square foot. 


Company owner Jason Hanrahan is a master carpenter, with an attention to detail like few others. Our EnerGuide rating of 86 is a testament to his workmanship and modern building practices.  

Many thanks, Jason
