Building Your Future with Confidence, Clarity, & Commitment  —  Since 1974

Staff / Resumes

With our combined experience and knowledge of the construction industry and practices, our client engages an excellent construction team. Through the many projects we have worked on together, we have developed a cooperative working relationship, and have great respect for each other’s expertise. We work together to find a better, faster, and more cost efficient plan to do a project. We are flexible when it comes to materials, styles, and types of buildings we build. From a flat roof to a shingled sloped roof, from a brick exterior to an E.I.F.S. exterior, we have built it all. Examples of recent projects can be viewed in Markets.

L & L Contracting believes that owners should do business with contractors who invest in training and maintain the skills of their workforce. This is achieved through training by the Michigan State Certified Carpenter Apprentice Program sponsored by the Associated Builder’s and Carpenter’s Association.
