Our mission is to build lasting projects and strong relationships with our clients. Buck Brothers Construction provides complete design-build services to the urban core neighborhoods of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
Established by Bob and Joe Buck in 1983, Buck Brothers Construction has put together a trusted team of professionals designed to provide you with competence and expertise. Our dedicated staff and proven management process ensure that you will receive an excellent project, completed on time and within budget.
Our extensive experience with older urban homes safeguards you against unpleasant “surprises” that lead to backyard barbecue horror stories (a good thing, given that many of our employees live in the same neighborhoods as our clients)! We enjoy steady and amiable relationships with our sub-contractors and suppliers, whom we have chosen for their experience in managing the unique challenges older homes present.
Our skilled field and lead carpenters provide not only high quality craftsmanship, but they also strive to deliver considerate customer service. We are respectful of the fact that any remodeling project, no matter how small, can be a major life upheaval by its intrusion into your home. Our aim is to soften the impact of this intrusion as much as we can.
Buck Brothers is an active member of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), the premiere trade association geared toward providing resources for homeowners.
