Client Testimonials

Building a custom home is a long process with so many details! We are people who have specific and detailed demands. Alex worked hard to accommodate all our needs and wants. He has a knowledge of the craft of building that makes me very confident in my home. Everything about our house is solid from the foundation to framing and painting. I believe a true artist installed our floors. Many, many thanks!

Fruth Construction built me my dream house. The quality of construction and customer service both were above and beyond my expectations. I enjoyed working with Alex and all his sub contractors. He listened to what I wanted and made it happen. This is my 3rd house I have built, so I was no stranger to the process and this was the best experience I had. I would absolutely recommend Fruth Construction to build a custom house. Thank you Alex and all your team for making the process easy and building a house above and beyond my dreams!!

- Amy Mulherin-Red Bud, Illinois

Fruth Construction built our custom home in Brellinger subdivision in Columbia, IL. The entire process from our initial meeting until the final day of construction was a smooth process. Alex is very thorough throughout the building process and fair with pricing. You won’t find another builder in the area on the price per square foot with the quality he provides. He was very upfront if we went over our spending allowance and we could decide if we wanted to proceed. There were also no hidden charges on the final bill, which we had heard horror stories about with other builders. We highly recommend Fruth Construction and would use them again if we ever build another home.

We did not take building a home lightly. We interviewed several area builders and knew from the moment we met with Alex & Fruth Construction he was going to be the perfect fit.  Alex sits down with you through several consultations to really understand your vision for your home and make sure you understand exactly where your money is going. Line by Line. This was huge for us. Him, his team & all of his subcontractors were outstanding. Extremely friendly and meticulous in their trades. Honestly, there isn't a thing we regret. If you are looking to build a home... look no further, I promise, Alex is the man for the job!

Working with Alex and Sarah to build our home was an experience that I would recommend to anyone. Building a custom home during a global pandemic is a huge undertaking but they made it much easier. They are both incredibly responsive, helpful, and professional. The finished product is exactly what we asked for and we could not be happier. If you are looking for a company to build your custom dream home while partnering with you on every detail, look no further!
