Kehr Construction Inc

hear from recent clients


We had an extensive remodel done on our new home, including full kitchen/great room, bathrooms, flooring, installing new fireplace, painting and much more. Kehr Construction and their crew were excellent craftsmen, very knowledgeable, courteous and efficient. Walt handled contacting and arranging schedules with the sub-contractors and made sure they were on the job when they needed to be. He went with me to several places (such as tile and cabinet companies) to provide his expert opinion which was a tremendous help. Walt is a creative, extremely knowledgeable contractor. He worked right alone side the crew and over saw the daily tasks and progress. Walt had some great design suggestions and has a superb work ethic. Walt was very easy to communicate with and kept us informed of progress throughout the duration of the remodel.

We hired Walt to build a 2 story shop garage and put a granny unit on our property. Every worker that came onto the property was polite and safety conscious. The work site was clean through out the project and they finished in the amount of time they expected and on budget. The workmanship was quality and inspections were passed without any issue. Great Firm – Great People – Great Value!

Kehr Construction was hired to build my home in 1999. The 2600 square foot home was built for me from the ground up. They coordinated the entire house from digging the foundation to landscaping the yard. The home came in on budget and on time. In 2004 I had them come back to add a 500 square foot game room over the top of the garage and again a great experience. We were living in the home during the addition and found all of their employees a pleasure to have around. I would definitely recommend this company without any hesitation. Now in 2013 Kehr was again hired to build me a new home and I already know what to expect.
Ricci House
We hired Kehr Construction to build a certified green home and barn using all sustainable material, with solar components and much more. This was at a time when if you walked into a tile store and asked to look at green tile, they showed you tile that was green. It was quite a project, but with Kehr’s construction guidance and professionalism it was actually a pleasure. The home turned out beautifully!

Walt is an incredible contractor. I am a realtor and his company has completed 2 projects in my neighborhood (a home w/a granny unit and another granny unit plus a garage/loft. His craftsmanship, attention to detail and work ethic continually exceed expectations. I highly recommend his services!

I have worked on numerous lovely home remodels with Walt Kehr over the years. Walt is a pleasure to work with and he is always willing to help a homeowner to come up with just the right solutions for their needs. Cooperation, integrity, and flexibility are a part of Walt’s approach and this ensures a great collaboration and makes our work a pleasure!

Kehr Construction Co is the ONLY company that I would even consider when re-modeling. Seven years ago we had major defective roof issues on our home built by a development company just 10 years prior. Kehr construction had TWO structural engineers give opinion on this project and then they managed the re-roofing process. SInce we had to re-roof down to the trusses we decided to re-model our kitchen, laundry room and kids bathroom. Walt and his team were at our home everyday for nearly 2 1/2 months working on this project and giving us expert design recommendations and the finished project has been more than great-just fantastic. All of the sub contractors that they worked with were great and very good at what they do. The price was very fair and the attention to detail was so amazing! We are now just starting to plan for a master suite re-model-and we only want Kehr construction on this job!

With their vast experience in building high end, custom homes, we always felt confident in their expertise and workmanship. They paid close attention to details and were not only able to give us cost-saving ideas, but also improved on numerous ideas from the original plans. Once we moved in, they continued to respond quickly and efficiently to after-construction details as well as any minor problems we had. Their work is completed on time and their workmanship is impeccable.

Walt and their great crew have assisted us in two different re-models plus other projects around our home. I have been very very pleased with their workmanship; ideas and suggestions; and they were always here every day, on time and ready to work. The crew that works for them are very skilled and just good men!!! When I had questions-they got right back to me with answers and were very through with explanations. I look forward to any future projects that we will work on together.

Our firm has worked with Kehr Construction over the course of many years on projects as large as a Holiday Inn hotel in Sebastopol and Sheraton in Petaluma, as well as custom homes and modest remodels.

Kehr possesses experience, knowledge of construction and architecture, the ability to communicate ideas and cost saving solutions, but more importantly they are in touch with the needs of their clients.

Kehr remodeled two bathrooms in our home. We did this with a vision but without an architect. This approach required great patience and flexibility on the part of Kehr’s owners. They happily worked with us through every change and suggestion. Their workers and subcontractors were very skilled and really took personal ownership of our project. The finished product is magnificent and at a very reasonable price.

After meeting a few of his previous and current clients and walking through their homes our confidence in Walt solidified. Now that we are moved in, we see that our high expectations were realized over the time we interacted with Walt. Walt was always flexible with us and with the few modifications we made to the plans during the building process. Walt would even anticipate our needs and design and was a genuine collaborator in achieving our true home. At the same time he demanded exactness and only the highest quality products and subcontractors.

Not only did we live out of state while our home was being built, but construction occurred before and during the global pandemic all the while we found Walt to be completely accessible and communicative during the process and he made us feel that our home was his only project. Not only was it a great business relationship, it developed into a true friendship. Kehr Construction doesn’t just build homes,they build lasting relationships.
