SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Restoration Builders Inc. announced today that it has acquired abcSAGE Inc., headquartered in Murrietta, Calif.

abcSAGE was founded in 2015 by founder and President Steve Fulgham. The company is a licensed general contractor in California that specializes in solar and renewable energy systems.
