The “Ethos” name has a Greek origin and is used to describe the distinguishing character, sentiment, moral nature, or guiding beliefs of a person, group or society.  Ethos doesn’t translate into English very well because it embodies several elements.  Basically, to have good ethos, ones must possess three traits:

  • Good Character,
  • Good Sense, and
  • Good Motives.

We founded Casa Tua Construction Group, LLC to offer an intelligent, thoughtful, and caring approach to serve global families with unique property needs.  Every day, we work with each client like you are our only one.

Take the time to learn about your contractor.  At a minimum, check in your county or the state's Construction Industry Licensing Board (CILB) to be sure that your contractor is properly licensed.  You can also check if there have been complaints.  Also, ask for General Liability and Workers' Compensation Certificates of insurance (COI) in advance.  Check if the name of the business is that same name listed on their legal and insurance documents.  If they are not, ask why.  Working with a licensed and insured contractor protects you.  Our Florida License number is CGC1526837.
