"Robert’s attention to detail and execution of the work has always exceeded the expectations of our clients. I enjoyed collaborating with Robert to achieve the most economical and efficient construction solutions. His appreciation for good design is evident in his thoughtful approach to translating drawings to built form. A great communicator with a wealth of construction knowledge, Robert maintains an open dialogue between Owner and design professional with the objective of satisfying the design goals of the project."

Founded in 1993, Robert Delafield, Florida General Contractor License CGC 018506, has been involved in the construction trades in Tampa Bay since returning from Vietnam in 1971. Robert’s focus is on remodeling and new home projects from the point of inspiration to final completion, always with an eye to returning long term value to his customers. His approach is to maintain a hands on involvement through every phase of construction. Although no two projects are the same, all have a common underlying process.

Robert began his construction career doing concrete foundation work. He then became a framing contractor, building many custom homes in the Tampa Bay area. After several years in the framing trades, Robert became a licensed general contractor in 1981.

For the past 30 years, Robert H. Delafield, Inc. has been engaged to complete many distinctive projects. An important component of our business is our relationships with architects and designers, vendors, material suppliers, and subcontractors. 

We believe that trust and being trustworthy sets the foundation for any successful, long-term relationship.

We have worked through extensive re-building and repair of all types of structures. Working on existing homes and matching finishes, appearance and bringing old to new seamlessly are part of our service.

We devote the attention and resources to provide our customers with a truly personalized home.


Robert worked with us as we improvised our way through remodeling our kitchen, and finishing the interior of a backyard she-shed sewing room. His vision for how to best use limited space, and the excellent workmanship of his crew, have already resulted in significant improvements in the quality of life in our home!
