Aspire Builders, Inc. was started in June of 2004 (Original name was ZCR, Inc.) after the owner had worked in the Architectural Engineering/Commercial Construction field for 9 years. The commercial construction industry helped develop a strong work ethic and put in place processes that keep projects organized and very professional. Aspire Builders Inc took these processes and integrated them into the residential construction industry.

During this time the owner took the opportunity to physically work with framing, electrical, HVAC, plumbing, siding, roofing and other professional trades to learn hands on how the actual work is done. He already had the schooling, some hands on and design knowledge, but knew his weakness was learning the “tricks of the trades”. Once he added this knowledge to his abilities, it drastically made him a better builder and consultant to his clients. More contractors should take the time to learn all aspects of construction, rather than just one or two trades before becoming licensed.

Aspire Builders Inc is very proud to use Minnesota based products. Many people do not realize how many great products we have in this state! We love going to personally visit these companies and meet with the owners or their representatives. See our Clients Page for more information.

Aspire Builders Inc has worked hard to create a very dynamic team of individuals whose goal is to make every project a wonderful experience! We constantly get clients at the beginning and end of the project saying how much they enjoyed that we took ownership of their project and gave ideas that took it to the next level!
Our past experiences and knowledge is what makes Aspire Builders Inc great at thinking outside the box. We understand how a building is built, the codes that go into it, and we have a process that keeps the project on time and on budget! This is extremely important when dealing with homes built before the 1970’s.
