In 1986, at age 16, Elliott began his career in construction. He worked for a father-son construction company in PA where he was taught carpentry along with the old-school traditions and values of impeccable quality, honesty and craftmanship. He brings all those qualities to his business today.
In 1990 he moved to Colorado, where he worked as a carpenter in the Boulder/Denver area. In 2001 he expanded his business and founded Silver Contracting. Since then, Silver Contracting has enjoyed consistent growth in both sales and scope of work. For the last 10 years Silver Contracting has specialized in custom home building and large-scale renovations.
Silver Contracting’s tagline “Experience IS the Difference” is exemplified in Elliott’s nearly 40 years in the business of building. He has an unparalleled knowledge of all phases of construction from start to finish. He has a comprehensive working understanding of the mechanical, electrical and plumbing phases of building and a broad technical understanding of the engineering and structural components as well.
When it comes to the ever-changing, modern building codes and land use regulations Elliott is an expert. From the new, non-combustible building codes required for building in potential wildfire areas, to the new green energy codes, he has it covered.
Elliott takes a collaborative approach to all his projects. He really enjoys the interaction between architects, engineers, subcontractors and homeowners and uses this approach to determine the most efficient and cost effective ways to build his projects.
Personally, Elliott has lived in Lafayette with his wife Laurie and son Ty for 23 years and counting. He is very involved in the local community and has completed many projects for the City of Lafayette.
He is a huge sports enthusiast and plays in a local hockey league. He has been a volunteer basketball and flag football coach for his son’s many sports teams for over 15 years. He has notably coached his teams to 2 trips to the NFL ProBowl tournament and has enjoyed multiple interactions with the Denver Broncos and CU Buffalo teams.
Mostly, he loves all things Colorado!
