We’re a fully licensed, bonded, and insured general contracting firm serving the Greater Sacramento area. And thanks to the vision of our founder, Steve Tankersley, we’ve become one of California’s leaders in residential construction by taking commercial construction principles and applying them to small- and mid-sized homeowner projects.
Being a family-owned business helps us keep our customers’ satisfaction in full view at all times. No matter how complex the project, our focus is on completing it on time and on budget, with no exceptions. And we believe it’s what has motivated so many of our customers to hire us for multiple projects and refer us to so many of their friends.
As a third-generation contractor, some of Steve Tankersley's earliest memories are of being on a jobsite with his father. Perhaps that’s what motivated him to earn a Bachelor's degree in Construction Management from Sacramento State University, all the while working as a carpenter for one of Sacramento's largest residential remodeling companies.
Then, after college, Steve was an Estimator and Project Engineer managing multi-million dollar projects ranging from churches, schools, and hospitals to power plants, train stations, and apartment complexes.
With a legal pad in front of him, Steve formulated a business plan and outlined values for the company that would become Tankersley Construction. On the left side of the page, he wrote down everything he knew worked well in construction, and on the right side, everything that didn't.
Steve studied the page then tore it in half, keeping only that which was to become the governing principles of his soon-to-be-dream company -- integrity, value, and a commitment to always putting the needs of the customer above his or his employees’ own.
