About Sound Builders

Second-Generation Remodeling Expertise You Can Trust

For your next remodeling project look to your local construction company with second-generation expertise that guarantees a first-class outcome. Sound Builders has been serving Puget Sound homeowners since 1976. Initially, we specialized in restoration work. The expertise gained there was passed from father to son in 1995 when Jay DePhelps became president. At that time, we shifted our company's focus to high-quality remodeling - specializing in kitchens, bathrooms, additions, and some tenant improvement projects. Since then, we have expanded into aging-in-place projects and home remodels that accommodate individuals with special needs and disabilities.
