What We're About

Northwest Coasters believes in safety, honesty, and hard work. We will do what it takes to meet your project deadline and do the job right. Our team isn't afraid to work long hours, 6-7 days a week suspended 200-300 feet in the air; in fact, they enjoy it.

Northwest Coasters does not tolerate cutting corners. As a drug-free company with an accident-free history, we require random drug testing during and prior to employment in addition to ongoing training on first aid, fall arrest, and equipment safety. With over two decades of construction experience, training, and know-how our team comes to the construction site tooled up and ready to work.
