We solve and prevent construction problems.

There’s a difference in our approach to serving customers. We look beyond each task at hand to how each task contributes to the overall scheme of things. Some do roof or basement work by the book, but what if they don’t think up front about potential ice dams or basement waterproofing? We are engineers who maximize efficiency and eliminate any potential problems. And with over eight decades of combined experience, we’ve seen and done it all.

Minnesota’s home and multi-dwelling premier service.

We’ve worked with over 100+ condo, townhome and homeowner associations and have excellent references. These organizations’ boards of directors have complex needs as they’re entrusted with managing and maximizing their associations’ budgets. Our team has reduced, even eliminated the yearly costs of ice dams, water damage, storm damage and more. We also work with hail damage and shingle claim assessments. Our A to Z solutions are in three phases: 1.) Assessment; 2.) A comprehensive written scope of work, including material and service procurement; and 3.) Oversight of the entire construction and/or reparation.

We serve:

  • Homeowner associations
  • Condo associations
  • Multiple dwelling associations
  • Homeowners
  • Management companies
  • Legal firms and arbitrators
  • Builders
  • Insurance companies
