It would be difficult to find a builder that provides the type of hands-on attention that comes from working with James M. Krantz Construction Corporation.

It started nearly forty years ago, when James M. Krantz, or “Jim Sr.”, started in the industry by pouring concrete and laying blocks in Michigan for his family’s business. Deciding to branch out on his own, he began his own company at the age of 21. After moving to Florida in 1979, he worked as a field supervisor on the now infamous Spaceship Earth located at EPCOT which included the main entrance and monorail station. Subsequently, he took on the role of project manager for a local company so that he could get the feel for the industry in Florida, and thus became incorporated in 1984.

It was then that he began teaching his son, Roland “Jim Jr.” each trade, step by step. Jim Jr. has now stepped into the role of Vice President, overseeing the company’s daily operations and project management.

Both of these men have made it a priority to stay on top of the industry by becoming active participants in the Remodelors Council and are Certified Aging-in-Place Specialists (CAPS), Florida Green Home Certifying Agents and New Homes Energy Star Partners. They are also actively involved with the National Association of Home Builders, the Florida Home Builders Association and the Home Builders Association of Metro Orlando, with Jim Jr. serving on the Board of Directors of two of the Associations.

These days you’ll find both Jim Sr. and Jim Jr. on the jobsite daily, making sure that each trade is working efficiently and expeditiously on the project at-hand.

In addition to their hard-working efforts in business, the Krantz team has made it a priority to serve their community as well. Both men have traveled extensively to West Africa and China in order to build charitable training centers and have also focused their energies within their own backyards, by building church and community playgrounds and volunteering their time and services at local high schools.

The team at Krantz Construction has set a personal goal to do its best to use the 2007 New Southern Home as a tool to educate builders, laypeople and the general public on the various components and details that go into building a home.

Krantz Construction has built and maintained an outstanding reputation for quality construction for forty years. This father-son team is known for their dedicated, hands-on approach to each and every project, from a simple renovation to multi-million dollar ground-up development. Clients are consistently impressed with the personal attention paid to every detail. Job signs can be found with the quote “Quality only happens when you care enough to do your very best”. Each and every client is given as much time as it takes to deliver an outstanding product, and it’s no surprise that much of their business comes from referrals.

At the end of the day it’s refreshing to know that there are companies such as Krantz Construction out there that are still committed to quality over quantity, and clients can rest assured that they are in capable, trustworthy hands.
