Established in 2005 – the company’s founder, Duane Cotton, owned and operated a local HVAC sales and service company which he sold in 2007 to concentrate on residential custom building and remodeling construction trading as Harbor Pointe, Inc.

Harbor Pointe diversified in 2008 to commercial new construction design and build services as well as commercial and industrial build-outs and remodeling.
