The #1 goal at Erkinger Construction Group is to build quality homes that customers can enjoy and that we can be proud of.  We believe the success that Erkinger Construction Group has experienced over the years is due, largely in part, to having a strong support system within our family unit and a deep faith and trust in God. As a team, our family works together to create homes customers will enjoy for years to come. We strive to do all that we can to accomplish this goal and then trust God to do the rest.
