We are owner-operated with a hands-on approach to contracting, allowing us to maintain great communication and control of the job to ensure our customer is informed throughout the process.

Elrath Construction is committed to providing excellent communication with the customer from start to finish. We believe this is the reason our jobs run smoothly. We pride ourselves on pointing out potential issues before construction and help our customers be aware of all expenses that they may incur during the project.
