Professional management and quality craftsmanship
Gemkow Construction specializes in custom home building and remodel
projects that benefit from professional management and quality
execution. Our business focus answers a regional need for
a management-oriented construction company that can successfully
supervise larger-scale projects. We offer our clients the
expertise more common to a bigger firm, as well as the personal
service and accountability of a locally owned and managed
business. We take as much care with our relationships as we
do with our projects.

of our clients. The efforts of GC's experienced and capable
full-time staff, along with a group of very loyal subcontractors,
contribute to our success in meeting deadlines and expectations.
Gemkow's staff of skilled carpenters, project managers and
superintendents average 25 years experience in the construction
business. Together, GC personnel have built a solid reputation
for integrity, quality of workmanship, timeliness and an ability
to work in harmony with the many people and organizations
involved on our projects.
