Jurgens Construction: All in the Family

By
From page HGS10 | April 29, 2013 |

“My whole family has been builders. My father was a commercial builder and my grandfather and uncle were in building, too. So I guess it was kind of programmed into me,” said Jeff Jurgens, owner of Jurgens Construction in El Dorado.

Jeff opened Jurgens Construction in the early 1980s. He’s been a licensed general contractor for more than 30 years. But his family’s experience in the area actually extends further back — a lot further back.

“My grandparents came to El Dorado County in 1893, and in 1902 they helped establish the town of Jurgens out near Rescue,” said Jeff. “There was a post office, a saloon, a boarding house — everything. Unfortunately, it all burned down in 1935.”

Despite this tragedy, it is this longevity in the area that has helped set Jurgens Construction apart from competitors. Jeff knows Northern California’s climate well and knows the best materials to use for all of his customers’ construction needs. Jurgens Construction specializes in outdoor decks, remodels for kitchens and baths, home additions and exterior sidings on homes. Jeff and his partner, Bill Humes, do all of the work themselves.

“One of my favorite things about this job is all of the different people I meet,” said Jeff. “We always make a site visit and try to get a feel for what a customer wants, then I design something around that. I do all of my own drawings. Sometimes it takes a few tries, but I always want to make sure that our finished product is exactly what the customer had hoped for.”

In addition to their dedication to customer satisfaction, customers can expect that Jeff and Bill will pay attention to details like keeping their homes clean during periods of construction. The two tent off areas inside, are very careful about dust control, and always clean up their mess at the end of the day.

“We want to provide the best customer service possible,” said Jeff. “We’re always honest and polite. We also try to support the community by getting our lumber and supplies from local companies. Mostly, though, it’s our experience that sets us apart. We know what we’re doing, and we’ll do whatever it takes to make sure our customers are satisfied every time.”

Stop by and say hello to Jeff and Bill at their booth in the front of the Forni Building.
