Uncompromising Quality - Unparalleled Craftsmanship
HARD WORK AND FAMILY VALUES BUILT THIS BUSINESS
By Shelley Little (Quad Cities Times Staff Writer)
Born just south of Blue Grass, Iowa, Frank Ehrecke is aself-proclaimed country boy. By combining his energetic, rural work ethic and his friendly farm-boy roots, Ehrecke has grown his construction business, Ehrecke Construction, from apart -time hobby to a booming family business.
"I really like to take a personal approach to all my jobs. The respect we have for our clients wants and needs is truly the center of my business. During a remodeling job, we greet our clients in their homes every day —this takes a special attitude and personality to be successful," Frank Ehrecke, owner of Ehrecke Construction, said.
Ehrecke began his construction career in 1975 when he was afull-time employee at the Rock Island Arsenal in their Machinist Apprenticeship Program. "Wages were low during the apprenticeship, so I subsidized my income with weekend construction jobs," Ehrecke said.
This construction moonlighting continued throughout Ehrecke's Arsenal career, "I would use my `vacation time' to do larger projects including home building," Ehrecke said.
Finally, in 2001, Ehrecke and his son, Joe, officially established their remodeling and construction business. Son, Joe Ehrecke, took the helm for the first few years, and used his extensive knowledge of construction to buildupthe business name.
"Joe had previously worked for one of the Quad City area's premier home builders, Terry Knutsen of Terry Knutsen Builder Inc., and after moving to Chicago he worked in construction with his Uncle on exclusive projects such as the renovation of the Frank Lloyd Wright Avery Clooney house in Riverside, Illinois," Ehrecke said with apparent pride of his son's hard work and skill set.
Ehrecke Construction now consists of Frank, son Joe and Jay Meyer, afull-time associate. The team also has a part-time accountant.
"We specialize in kitchens and bath, but we have literally done everything from whole house remodels to remodeling a single bath," Ehrecke said.
With the baby boom population reaching 50 years old or more, Ehrecke has seen a substantial increase in remodeling to suit this demographic.
"I have done a lot of room additions that involve main floor master suites and bathrooms, zero entry walk-in showers, and 3 foot doorways —these all allow for a more user-friendly home environment and more importantly, allow people to `age in place' where they are already content and comfortable," Ehrecke said.
"Overall, Joe and I have found the pertect career!" To learn more about Ehrecke Construction please call Frank at (563) 343-2473 or visit their website at www.ehreckeconstruction.com
