Through The Years


Leonard Webb – Founder

Leonard Webb founded Webb General Contracting in 1945 in Delano, CA. He started out selling lumber and hardware and building spec homes. In 1955 his son, Doug Webb, joined the company which would be renamed, Webb & Son. By 1960 they moved the company to Porterville, CA, and began working in commercial construction.

In 1975 Doug and Betty Webb incorporated the company and became a dealer for Star Building Systems. They began to design and sell many steel buildings throughout the central valley.

In 2018 Layton joined the company; making Webb & Son a 4th generation family-owned business. Since then Webb & Son has begun working in residential construction again while continuing to focus on commercial construction and steel buildings.

What We Do

Webb & Son specializes in commercial, institutional, agricultural, and industrial construction. We have built hospitals, churches, schools, government and private office buildings, giant-sized agricultural storage sheds, food processing plants, supermarkets, manufacturing plants, among others.

Webb & Son offers a variety of services including project planning, preliminary estimating, permit processing, project management, and "turn-key" project construction. Our experience allows us the ability to conceptualize your needs and bring them into reality in a project that is functional to you, within your budget, and constructed in a timely manner.

Our Mission

Although we strongly believe the best value for your project is obtained in partnering with you from the initial stages of your project through the construction and post-construction phases, we recognize that not all projects lend themselves to this approach due to various regulations. For that reason, Webb & Son offers numerous delivery methods.
