Business Description
John Kraemer & Sons, Inc. is a luxury residential builder and remodeler, based out of Edina, Minnesota.

Founded in 1978 by Gary Kraemer & his late father John, the firm focuses on luxury residential projects of all shapes, sizes, and styles. While the firm is based out of Minnesota, they are uniquely positioned and willing to take on projects throughout the U.S.

Unique in the fact that JKS employs all of their own job superintendents, project managers, and finish carpenters. The firm works closely with each client on a 100% open book basis where everything is transparent, and all bids, invoices, and receipts are available for client review at any time.

Gary Kraemer, John Kraemer & Jeff Kraemer are personally involved each project, both large and small. Furthermore, each of John Kraemer & Sons' clients are assigned a job superintendent who are devoted solely to one job, and will be on site all day everyday until the project is complete. This makes John Kraemer & Sons unique from most builders whose superintendents manage multiple projects at a time.

John Kraemer & Sons was the recipient of the Builder of the Year award in 1999, 2009, and again in 2013. This honor is given to the builder who best exhibits trust, ethics, and customer satisfaction. They are the only three-time winner in the history of the award.

With two of Gary's sons, John & Jeff entering the business, the firm is now a third generation company.

Check out www.jkandsons.com for more information. We look forward to speaking with you, and are happy to provide an extensive list of references and tour you through past projects we've completed, as well as new homes and renovations we currently have in progress.

Sincerely,

John R. Kraemer

Hello there! The exterior is painted wood, so it is not maintenance free. Have a great day!

The mantle or the hearth? The mantle is reclaimed barn wood from Manomin Resawn Timbers in Hugo, MN. The heart is Stone from a local stone supplier in MN. Thanks!

There is no stone on the fireplace. The column effect that you see on the sides is reclaimed barn wood. Thanks, and have a great day!
