TJ Thornberry, Punta Gorda – Florida Certified Master Builder

Florida Certified Master Builder (FCMB), created to help consumers find a builder they can trust, is proud to announce Thomas “TJ” Thornberry of Thornberry Custom Builders in Punta Gorda, is now a Florida Certified Master Builder.

Florida Certified Master Builders are elite Home Builders, Remodelers and Commercial Contractors who are dedicated to excellence in building and client satisfaction. The builders who request certification hold themselves to a higher standard than required by the State of Florida for licensure.

TJ Thornberry is a Charlotte County native and came back “home” to start Thornberry Custom Builders, Inc. in 2004 and has been very involved in his community, serving on many boards as well as serving as President of the Charlotte-DeSoto Building Industry Association and the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce. TJ is a custom builder who specializes in utilizing his knowledge and customer service to build each customer’s home specific to their needs. In 2019, Thornberry Custom Builders was the SWFL Parade of Homes Showcase Home, and was awarded the Judges Choice awards for best outdoor living and best bonus room.

The State of Florida proudly touts the extreme difficulty with which to obtain a contractor’s license. Once received, builders and remodelers must adhere to the stringent Florida Building Code and receive 14 hours of continuing education every two years in order to maintain their license. FCMB recognizes Florida’s rigorous standard for all contractors, but knows it is not enough to stand out amongst the crowd.

Florida Certified Master Builders must meet strict requirements and demonstrate a proven track record of building expertise, business stability, integrity and exceptional customer service. Their education, design and product research requirements keep them in tune with the latest building practices and design trends.
