The Clason Company is a full service real estate development and construction company dedicated to improving the built environment through innovation, integrity, and professionalism.
Honesty, Integrity, and Trust
Honesty, integrity and trust are at the core of who we are, both personally and professionally. We are committed to absolute transparency with our clients, and we understand the magnitude of trust placed in us to be honorable stewards of their homes and financial resources. We treat clients’ funds as if they were our own, and NEVER resort to “upselling” our clients or seeking change orders to increase profit margins. We always present the most economical options that we feel will best serve clients’ needs.
The leadership of the Clason Company has broad experience working in corporate environments in major metro areas, both domestic and international. This experience combined with many years of successful project execution in Southern Oregon results in a high level of professionalism with regard to communication, presentations, interpersonal skills, financial management, scheduling, and problem solving. Also, the entire leadership team has university degrees from top-tier schools such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Brigham Young University.
The fact that the Clason Company carries the name of its owner, John Clason, is representative of the personal commitment we have to ensure our work is something we’re proud to put our name on. We do things the right way, and don’t cut corners. When we or our subcontractors make mistakes, we own them and do everything in our power to make things right. We stand by our work.
Whether your project is a small remodel or a large custom home on a difficult hillside lot, our project portfolio proves we will get the job done. We love solving problems, and have the experience and technical training to do so efficiently. We often leverage 3D design software to evaluate issues where 2D drawings do not suffice, thus saving money and time on the jobsite.
In-House Design Assistance
A custom home or remodel project requires hundreds of client decisions, and sometimes the magnitude of those decisions can be daunting to home owners. At the Clason Company, we have a dedicated design manager to assist clients with the many design and finish decisions that must be made prior to and during construction, thus helping to provide a smooth and enjoyable client experience.
You don’t have to take our word for it……talk to our customers. The best way to evaluate a builder/contractor is to get honest client feedback. We highly encourage you to reach out to our past clients and ask them about their experience with us. If you’d like a list of references, let us know!
Extensive Network of Trusted Subcontractors and Suppliers
We have long standing relationships with our subs and suppliers which is essential when it comes to efficient project delivery and problem solving. Our trade partners know we expect quality work in a timely manner, and they expect us to lay the groundwork for them to deliver on that expectation. When something goes wrong, we work together to find the best solution and are accountable for our actions. Construction can be a complex process filled with many variables, so having a cohesive, collaborative, well-tuned team is critical.

I cannot recommend getting a Clason home highly enough."Joe & Kim LangstonAshland

They have truly made our remodel a turn-key experience, delivering a very pleasant experience as they handle all the tough issues that arise with confidence and grace."Emily WilliamsCentral Point
"We tried going through lots of different companies for various projects and so many of them were a total flop. Clason Co. totally went to bat for us to get exactly what we wanted to have the prices we wanted. I also appreciated their transparency with costs. Also we were on a super tight schedule needing to get our kitchen done in 3-4 weeks, and they made it happen."Vince and Tamara SmithAshland

"John had an incredibly organized and well communicated plan for moving through all the choices that we had to make. For each category of finishes, he had an expert we could speak with, a store we could visit, and a very clear budget for everything….John has always answered his phone, or gotten back to us within a day…We would definitely recommend John to anybody looking for a builder that will deliver a quality home, with first class finishes, tailored to your own personal style."Chris MillerMedford
