"A special thank you to you, Eli, Bill and everyone at Porter for a fabulous 1st year in our new home.  You've done so much for us and the positive comments we've received only reflect on your professional and quality of work done.  We wish you all the best and we'll always give you accolades for your build."

Mark and Donna H.

"We love our new home that Porter built for us. We visited the construction site almost daily and can only say that all the contractors involved in the building process where extremely skilled professionals! The quality & workmanship that went into our new home exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend Porter Contracting if your considering on building a new home."

Walter & Theresa V.

"Porter Construction totally exemplifies the true meaning of quality and service throughout. Bill Porter and his years of experience and expertise truly make the difference in getting what you want vs. getting exactly what you need and expect. His professionalism is direct and spot on but still bears the roots of a simple good ole boy network feel that is lost in business today. Eli, the new sitting President is a perfect reflection of his fathers mentoring and he does a great job leading the company and his team in the right direction. And I might say he has a great team. Not only of employees but Subcontractor partnerships as well. They fire on all cylinders. If your looking to build a new home in their area I would strongly suggest you give them a great bit of consideration as you will pleasantly satisfied with the outcome"

Mike & Tammy O.

"Our Porter house is now to us like a fine wine.  It just keeps getting better the longer we live in it and the more we learn about it.  The quality of construction and materials is outstanding and now I realize you have to live in a high quality home to really appreciate it.  Clearly, choosing Porter to build our home ranks with the best decisions I have ever made.  You adroitly guided us through the business process with great diplomacy and expertise. The appreciation we have for Bill really cannot be expressed.  He is truly one of a kind and clearly a man who takes pride in what he does, how he does it and producing something beautiful and lasting.  He made several decisions and took several steps to make sure our house was "right" .  So again, thank you to you all at Porter for a wonderful house here in paradise , and Leslie & I truly wish you all the very best"

Donald & Leslie P.

"Billy & I are finally out of Boston and here at our Dream Home that you and your Dad built, and it is amazing!  Watching the Bruins now.  We just love everything about it!   Thanks sooooo much!"

Although I've lived in over 30 places, and even worked for a general contractor, this was my first experience building my own home. The Porter team greeted me every time I entered the office with a friendly smile and readiness to help. Whether changing blue prints, showing courtesy to the neighbors, selecting the floorboards, or adding a last minute sprinkler system, Eli and the team provided the stress-free coordination. Most importantly, there is the quality: I have several GC friends, and every one is impressed with the quality of this home.

Thank you Porter team!

"I have found Eli to be consistently ahead of task, providing me with ample time and information to prepare for his clients, order product and schedule delivery and set-up to his jobs.  Besides being a great person to work with, Eli is an innovative person who is able to present creative ideas, communicate the benefits and implement the changes.  He has successfully developed several delivery and installation guidelines that involved, including my company, many suppliers and subcontractors that has resulted in a decrease of theft from his job sites an a quicker more efficient delivery to installation schedule.  Eli's abilities and over the top efforts have minimized losses and created gains.  Eli is honest and trustworthy, highly respected by whom he works with for his willingness to help anyone he can.  Easily reachable and always on time.  I highly recommend Eli Porter."

We just wanted to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for building us a beautiful new home.  We absolutely love everything about it.  We have been expressing and extoling your Company’s expertise to everyone we come into contact with.  We consider ourselves very blessed these days and you all are a big part of that.  Thank you again

Your service is most appreciated. Last year, when we were finally ready to add an extensive addition onto our home, we contacted your website to find a good contractor. After meeting with several contractors and reviewing their bids, we decided on the one we found through your website, Porter Contracting Inc. of Englewood, FL. My husband is severely handicapped so we needed a contractor who understood all the special needs he has and who would be willing to work with us to attain the best possible results.  


Both Eli and Bill Porter were more than accommodating. They are the first contractors we have dealt with who actually showed up for the job when promised and delivered outstanding craftsmanship in all areas. If time constraints were an issue, they even showed up on weekends. Their workers were neat, professional, and very trustworthy.  


We are so very pleased with the final results of our project and have had numerous compliments from friends and strangers on what a beautiful home we have.


We will happily recommend them to anyone wishing to have construction done in our area, and once again, thank you for your community service."

Mitch & Mariann W.

We are absolutely thrilled with how our "Shanty" turned out. It is beautiful and practical at the same time. We have used the pizza oven and Brazilian BBQ only a few times so far, but everything has been outstanding and easy to use. 


We could not be happier with how well it all turned out. Thank you for not only your quality work but also your input with ideas to make it just right.

We are so very happy with our new Florida dream home built by Porter Construction located in Rotonda West. Bill and Eli Porter are a wonderful father and son team who are committed to serving their clients at the highest level of excellence and delivering a finished product that is of the highest quality workmanship. As we were building this house from long distance, with our main residence in Minneapolis, MN, Porter Construction came highly recommended for their trusted workmanship, their flexibility to meet customer requirements, ability to communicate long distance and their focus on delivering the best product possible. 


Eli showed incredible patience with us as this was our first time building a new home and of course we had tons of questions and needed lots of guidance. Eli did an outstanding job of serving our best interests and helping us to make the right decisions for our dream home. Bill Porter then took over and did an incredible job of ensuring that the quality of work of every subcontractor was outstanding and would only pass the customer standard of excellence if first passing Bill’s very high standard of excellence. Bill, like Eli, showed great patience and provided considerable guidance as we moved throughout the build process while living 1,800 miles away and only visiting Florida four times throughout the entire process from start to close. Our experience with Bill and Eli was simply outstanding, we love our new wonderfully built home and would highly recommend Porter Contracting for building your new home.

“I think it is very important for a new homeowner to have a good working relationship with the builder. Eli really stood out for us. My wife and I could not be any happier with our new home. I most certainly have to contribute this to Eli Porter and his skill as a supervisor. If I build another home in this area, I will most certainly be in touch with Eli Porter.”
