Hadley General Contractors, Inc.: 2023 Best of the County Services

With over 300 custom-built homes under their belt and thousands of completed projects, it’s safe to say that Hadley General Contractors have seen it all. Owner Jeff Hadley shares more about his prolific company.

What makes your business unique?
I believe part of taking care of the community is taking on jobs of all sizes, not just cherry-picking the big, attractive jobs. We will send someone out to hang a painting, work on a sewer line, remodel a kitchen, or build a new house. We really can — and will — do it all.
What do you love about construction?
At first, what drew me into construction is working with something tangible, where you can see your progress at the end of the day. Now what I love about construction is the problem-solving and working with clients to build their projects.
What do you love about working in Marin?
I feel very lucky to have been born and raised in Marin, and luckier to call this area my home. More than just the natural beauty, the people we get to meet and the projects we complete are almost always unique and challenging.
