Berger Built Construction Company, Inc

Berger Built Construction Company, Inc. (dba: Berger Built Homes or Berger Built Construction) is a successful residential home building company with a keen eye for value – particularly at moderate price points.  With homes starting in the high $100s – and normally not over $499,000 – we provide many of the value-added features usually found in houses at significantly higher price points.  We are recognized as a higher-end home builder at extremely moderate price points.

Here are a few of our standout features – many of which are standard – engineered floor trusses, concrete driveways, architectural shingles, larger and more elaborate kitchens featuring hickory cabinets, as well as sharp shingle-and-shake combinations.  Our homes have great curb appeal.  We provide quality upgrades such as built-in cabinets, mudrooms, three-car garages. vaulted ceilings, expansive master bedrooms, and other amenities that are surprisingly well priced due to our low overhead business model.  We make a point also to incorporate those time-honored construction techniques in our building projects of high quality materials and meticulous care to detail that add maximum resale value to our homes when you decide to sell.  Our quality of construction is second to none, particularly at our sharp price points.

Berger Built Construction  provides outstanding service that only a combination of experience, education, and teamwork can provide.  Our Company is affiliated by way of ownership with Builders Lumber and Supply, a material building company in northern Minnesota.  This relationship allows us to buy building materials at wholesale prices for the houses we construct and pass those saving on to you.  This strategy significantly reduces the cost of construction.

Our educational backgrounds include company members who have earned their MBA in finance and engineering, thus offering the necessary training to provide a careful analysis of just what will save you money during construction while still providing outstanding quality and service.

Finally, because our building crew is so careful, you will be proud to say that you have had your new home constructed by

Berger Built Construction. Our customers routinely allow us to use their names as references. What more significant compliment can any of us receive than to have those customers with whom we have worked closely for many months offer to tell anyone who asks what a great team and product we construct.

Our mission statement is accurately described in the following few words: “We don’t just build houses; we build your home, as if we lived there.”
