At Werner General Contracting, we plan for modern living in a classic style. Our goal everyday is to construct a space that we would be proud to raise our family in. We have been in the building, management and hospitality industries for 12 years and have experience in everything from building custom cabinets to handcrafting custom log homes.

What sets us apart from others is our customer service, integrity and attention to detail. A project is not done until it has passed our rigorous standards. Years of listening to clients has fine tuned our processes to prioritize craftsmanship, quality and service.


Considered the entertainment center of any home, we know most gatherings, familial or otherwise, always end up located around the kitchen island. Our highly experienced team of designers can help visualize the perfect place to cook chef quality meals, while also focusing on the function and utilitarian aspects we all strive to achieve with a showcase kitchen.


The most intimate and private space of your home should not be overlooked. We work vigilantly to provide an exceptional and private space to unwind from your daily routine. Our aim is to help re-imagine what relaxation and the image of a bathroom should be.


Often seen as an under-utilized space, we can help you transform your basement into an exceptional space to host. Whether it be a home theater, kid’s entertainment area, or craftsman wine cellar, we can customize this space for any and all of your needs.


Our dedicated commercial team excels in delivering exceptional results on extreme timelines. We want to transform your dull space into the business front of your dreams. Working diligently to meet budgetary and timeline requirements, we work to get your company open and operating as efficiently as possible.


We loved working with Frank Werner on our kitchen renovation. He was so respectful, kind, polite and patient with our entire family during the process. He made everything happen – literally I don’t think he ever said he couldn’t do something. The final product completely exceeded our expectations. Frank is totally attentive to detail, doesn’t miss a thing, and is obsessed with producing the very best job in a reasonable amount of time, while being as respectful of our families schedules as possible. We loved having Frank around and we are so impressed with the design, craftsmanship and quality of our kitchen. We have already recommended Frank to a handful of friends who are also very happy, AND we have had him price out other projects around our house including a master bathroom, a bar, a mantelpiece and a mudroom space.

Frank … was punctual, professional, friendly and responsive. Frank went the extra mile on several occasions and served as a tremendous resource. We have since sold our home but would absolutely consider using Frank for future projects.

In May 2021, my wife and I were finally set on a long overdue remodel… We reached out to Frank and shortly thereafter, had a quote for our own kitchen remodel… Frank took over and drove the process, and oversaw every step and held our hands throughout the work. The most important thing about Frank is that he is a high character person – he is honest, sincere, responsive and very likable… He is a very good communicator and kept us up to date on the work and next steps, and most importantly, to make sure we were happy and satisfied… You can tell Frank demands a lot of himself and his sub-contractors. Frank has an exacting eye for quality and demands that the work be done well … We never felt “nickel and dimed.” The estimate for the work was fair, and ensured that the work was completed to a high level of quality and he was proactive to let us know if something needed was going to be extra and would give us options. We have been very happy with our kitchen and look forward to the next project we have with Frank. We recommend him for your project with the highest enthusiasm and support!

Professionalism we bring to every project.

Supply Chain Delays

Upon permit and design approval materials will be ordered immediately. We work with preferred vendors to ensure seamless ordering and continual updates.


There are no hidden fees. Change orders will be presented and approved before any adjustments to the scope of work are made.

The Unknown

There will ALWAYS be unforeseen obstacles while remodeling. We clearly and directly explain added costs and solutions to whatever is encountered. Our goal is to help navigate and cost effectively mitigate any issues throughout the entirety of your project.


At several points throughout the project our in-house cleaning crew comes in to make sure we leave your house as clean and comfortable as possible.

Follow Through

We follow up 3 months and 6 months after project completion. Any items that need adjusting or touch ups will be taken care of to ensure a long lasting quality finish.

We look forward to working together on your next construction or remodeling project.
