About Franke Contracting


Franke Contracting is a custom remodeling firm with a focus on residential work. We have been in business since 1999. As a smaller, family-operated firm we are able to offer a high level of service to each of our customers. Both our employees and contractors have worked with us for many years and bring a high level of integrity and skill to all projects. Large or small we have resources to complete any remodel.


Fred Franke founded the business right after graduating UCSD. With a long family background in the construction industry Fred was initially going to head a different direction until a pivotal conversation with a personal friend made him realize that his skills and passions lie in building. Business grew quickly from there. Fred brings a level of professionalism that is typically lacking in the construction industry and homeowners quickly see the value in this.
