About Us

A Minnesota native, Paul has lived in Eden Prairie for the past twenty years. He grew up in Rochester, Minnesota among a family of engineers. He caught the construction bug as a young boy when his parents built a home, and completed his first roof in 1992. After graduating from college, Paul put his technical background to good use by working with aerospace technology giant Lockheed Martin.

Much like his idol, expert contractor Mike Holmes, Paul emphasizes customer service in his own work, building and maintaining relationships with customers. Paul personally oversees each phase of nearly every job to ensure adherence to his strict quality standards. Along with his hands on approach, Paul encourages customer feedback at every stage of a job. By keeping homeowners informed on what to expect, he strives to mitigate problems and maximize customer satisfaction.

Paul also uses his technical background when selecting products and suppliers. He applies rigorous standards to the selection process, only choosing products that he would be willing to use for his own or a family member’s home, such as GAF shingles, which he installed on his own parents’ home. Other factors he considers are the warranty the company offers for its products, the length of time the company has been in business and how the company handles customer concerns and complaints. For instance, Paul was impressed by Pella’s policy of sending out a certified technician to the customer’s home to handle any customer concerns that may arise.

About Our Work:

CVA Designs Construction specializes in slate, shake, and composition roofing materials. In addition to roofing installation; CVA Designs Construction provides free roof inspections. We also install siding, windows and provide gutter repair and replacement. We obtain all needed permits for our customers on every job, providing a seamless one stop solution.

For regular contract jobs, the average turnaround for job completion is one to two days. For emergency repairs, CVA Designs Construction can have a crew on site within 24 hours, and often much quicker, depending on safety conditions. CVA Designs Construction operates each job site efficiently and with a minimum of disruption, including hauling away waste materials and leaving behind a clean worksite.

Our experienced crews can handle the most challenging circumstances. In one instance, CVA Design Construction was contracted for a complete reroofing job for six larger than average rooftops for a complex of eleven townhomes located on a narrow residential street. The customer braced the residents of the complex to expect street closures lasting several weeks. Instead, CVA Design Construction completed the job to the customer’s satisfaction in three and one half days.

Some contractors may cut corners and overlook potential problems in a bid to increase their profit margins. However, CVA Designs Constructions not only consistently builds to code but often beyond code requirements. We seek out weak spots and potential problems with each project, viewing them as opportunities for improvement.

CVA Designs Construction also recognizes that you want your home to look good as well as provide shelter. With each roofing job we strive to achieve an aesthetically appealing architectural look. We install seamless gutters pressed out on the job site and we paint vents, valley metals, plumbing and furnace stacks to match the color of your roof’s shingles.

Working With CVA Designs Construction

CVA Designs Construction strives to educate customers on the merits of investing in higher quality materials and workmanship as a means to avoid problems down the road as well as ultimately saving the customer money.

Once we have worked out the terms of your contract, CVA Designs Construction takes the headache out of financing. We work with your insurance company to obtain the initial deposit required to begin each job as well as arranging for final payment. For most customers, the deductible represents the only out of pocket expense.

However, for projects that are not covered by insurance, such as upgrades, CVA Designs Construction works with each customer individually to devise mutually satisfactory payment terms, either through credit card payments or installment payment plans. We strive to provide the highest quality service at prices that you can afford.
