Family owned and operated since 2007.

Almost Heaven Contracting, LLC was founded in 2007 when Elijah Byers, the sole owner, decided to take a risk by forming his own company to offer personalized and customized contracting services to West Virginia.  He didn’t want his clients to merely be numbers on a piece of paper…Instead, he wanted to personally walk them through the process every step of the way to ensure they would be more than happy with every aspect of the project, from price to results.  For the past 10 years, he’s used this philosophy to build his Company (almost exclusively through referrals) into a business that takes pride in giving back to his community, employees three local individuals and works almost exclusively with dozens of subcontractors.

Elijah’s credits his firm commitment to faith, family and hard-work, to the success that he’s had to-date.  He traveled to Morgantown to continue his education, fell in love with the area and decided that this was the place he wanted to raise his family.

Elijah is married to his amazing wife Casey and has two children, “Ky” and Karli, who love to help Dad on the jobsite.  When not working, the Byers family enjoys spending endless hours with family and friends, taking in the beautiful outdoors of West Virginia, cheering on the Mountaineers, playing ice hockey or just spending time with each other.

He understands that his client’s families are just as important to them, as his are to him.  His favorite part of the business is that he’s able to bring families closer together by either building the home of their dreams or transforming their current house into something that his clients will be able to enjoy for years to come.
