John Gittus, Founder

John grew up here in Arizona. He’s lived here all his life. This may sound insignificant in terms of hiring your next contractor, but it means all the world. John has an undeniable passion about the streets in which he lives and the homes that lay upon them. You see, the work he does at Latitude 33 is about more than just creative beautiful spaces and putting smiles on faces, it’s about making his home, Arizona, just a little more incredible.

After graduating from ASU with a B.S. in Construction Management and prior to branching off and starting his own operation, he spent years honing his craft in many positions; including: working for a home builder, mastering residential framing, and serving as Superintendent of a national general contractor, a position in which he managed several multi-million dollar projects.

Perhaps more important than a resume’ of projects past is the words that pop up so often in testimonials written about John. You’ll find no shortage of adjectives among them. Honest, friendly, driven, and creative. Simply put, every trait you wish you could find in a contractor.


Working with John Gittus was a pleasure. As with all construction projects, there were delays and mishaps, but what sets a contractor apart is what he does when the inevitable happens. That is where John showed his great character and integrity. He always communicated, kept us in the loop, and went the extra mile to make sure things were done to our approval. I cannot imagine having had a more successful project working with any other contractor.Dane P. - Dixon Golf, CFO

There is really nothing negative that I can say about John and Latitude 33 Contracting. From our first meeting I knew that they were the right choice. John has impeccable communication and customer service skills. John and his team exceeded our expectations at every turn. Not only were they on time, or ahead for most of our project they were respectful of our home and our design wishes, I would without hesitation John and his team again, and plan on using them for future projects. The workmanship of every contractor who worked on our home was flawless, they exceeded our expectations!Laura DeNigris

We have used Latitude 33 for various needs at our current house and our previous one. This company is always professional and gives a fair price for the work. Everything has always looked amazing and we feel very good about each contractor... they are professional and qualified and do quality work. We would recommend this company without hesitation. They know what looks good and have creative ideas that fit within the unique style of each home. My favorite job they did for us is re-doing our front porch because of a tree root that had up-rooted the foundation. We trusted them to solve the problem, and re-model in a way that was updated and looked best. They even added a light in the walkway to show people (at night) there was a step. We were so happy with the results!Robyn Kelly

We needed to extend our back patio. This required additional drainage for our roof and moving our landscape. The work was done in a timely fashion and the contractor was attentive and easy to reach. The work also needed to be completed for a party and it was completed and cleaned up as promised.Christy Cole

I am a Realtor/Property Manager in the Phoenix area. I contacted Latitude 33 Contracting to have a patio door replaced for a property I manage for an out-of-state owner. I received the utmost care and respect from the contractors who took care of my request, in a timely manner. The job was completed efficiently, between tenants, so I didn't have any down time when showing and leasing the property. I would highly recommend Latitude 33 for any of my clients, family, and friends.Karla Reichard-Hoffer

I had Latitude 33 demo my old sliding glass door that led to my backyard and install a new 3 door French door unit. The French doors are a custom size and they were able to get a great product that would fit great in my pre-existing cutout. They installed the doors, painted and finished with hardware and it looks great. I wanted to get rid of the hanging blinds that were on my old sliding glass doors and these French doors have built in blinds between two panes of glass. You can fully open/close the blinds and with the slide of a bar on the side of the glass you can completely roll up the blinds to have a clean/clear window view of the backyard!Andy Warner
