Wood front entry.jpegWHO WE ARE

Yankee Restoration & Building is a Maine based, service-oriented company with an emphasis on creating long-term, professional relationships with our clients. Our focus on customer service and client communication helps us to accurately design and build what our customers want, while combining our years of experience with new technology.

YR&B has a select staff working with dedicated crews of trade contractors on projects including energy audits, weatherization, new homes, additions, renovations, kitchens and baths.



Proprietor Will Cheever founded Yankee Restoration & Building in 1987. His experiences growing up in New England inspired him to form a construction company focusing on the repair and reproduction of the craftsmanship found within the fine homes of the area. One job for a client turned into another as the relationships grew due to the quality of craftsmanship and professionalism exhibited throughout each project.

More than twenty-five years later, YR&B proudly works for some of those original customers. A deck here, a renovated bathroom there, a new house—those clients became friends.

New clients are becoming friends every year as Yankee Restoration & Building continues to create premier living spaces in the Greater Portland area.

Please browse our website for examples of our work. We look forward to talking with you about your home project.
