Edmonds-based Chermak Construction, Inc. has been serving the greater Seattle area for over 37 years doing full service home remodeling, home repair and light commercial/Tenant Improvements. Our service area includes Edmonds, Shoreline Seattle, Bellevue and surrounding communities. Our expert, award winning team goes the extra mile to ensure a good experience. The “brain trust” at Chermak Construction includes creative designers, knowledgeable project developers, master carpenters, and efficient office staff. We have made our mark, building stunning projects. Check out our gallery of projects. It represents a broad range in scope and size, but what doesn’t change is our commitment to making our clients happy. “Making a Difference” is what we love to do!

My wife and I have been friends with the Chermak family for many years and have always admired them as caring people and business professionals. After more than 16 years as a successful contractor operating France Construction, LLC in Woodinville, we purchased Chermak Construction in August of 2017. We worked long and hard with Howard and Judy Chermak to allow me to  step into the leadership role at Chermak and allow Howard to retire. We will retain the Chermak Construction name and staff and Howard will remain available to us in a consultant role to help make the transition successful. We are all excited about the future of this company as we continue to serve a second generation of customers here in the greater Seattle area.

Noah France
President

Chermak Construction began with one customer in June of 1980. I soon learned that partnerships and collaboration were a lot more fun than working alone. I also discovered my strong commitment to my customers and their families.

My philosophy has been to provide a full-service construction company with exceptional employees that thrive in a personable atmosphere. The company directly reflects my commitment to quality and concern for the needs of our customers. Over thirty-five years in the construction business, in Greater Seattle, Bellevue and Edmonds benefits our clients at every phase of the home remodeling process.

I take pride in my company’s professional, yet personal approach to the construction business. This creates an environment for successful projects and happy clients. Our office staff and master carpenters uphold our requirement of practiced customer service. It helps that we are creative individuals who care about every one of our projects. That characteristic has been proven to be a working model that wins. We’ve found that our projects come to a completion, but our relationships continue. Returning clients call us decade to decade for new projects in their homes, or home remodeling referrals for friends and family.

Chermak Construction opened a new chapter in August 2017 when I decided to retire and sell the business to a friend and equally professional builder, Noah France of France Construction, LLC. Noah will continue the legacy of quality work, integrity and customer service that is the hallmark of this company.

Howard Chermak
Founder

Chermak Office BuildingChermak Construction, Inc. grew out of Howard Chermak’s need to generate income to help finance his college education while attending Western Washington State University. Later, construction became a means to supplement his teaching income while working for the State of Minnesota school system as a speech therapist. After working several summers as a carpenter in college and as a teacher, Howard found that he was finding success and satisfaction in the building process.

In 1974 Howard made the decision to move back to Edmonds and enter the construction business on a full time basis. He started working with a local architect/builder as a Master Carpenter in new home construction on particularly difficult sites. By 1978, Howard was in full charge of the field operations for the construction company. In 1979 he made the decision to start his own business.

In 1980 he founded CRF Construction as a remodeling and construction company and five years later he hired his first employee. In 1985, the company became incorporated and renamed, Chermak Construction, Inc. That year he also received his Certified Graduate Remodeler™ designation. This is an exclusive, National Association of Home Builders designation that is designed to emphasize business management skills as the key to a professional remodeling operation. Howard was one of the first builder/remodelers in Washington State to receive this designation.

Today, Chermak Construction is a full service construction company dedicated to serving customers well. Our many awards and over 37 years of experience speak for themselves. On project after project our focus has been on building strong relationships between our clients, project developers, designers and master carpenters. That focus on people and making a difference in their lives is at the core of what makes our company a market leader in Seattle, Bellevue and surrounding regions.

In August of 2017 the company entered a new chapter in its history when Howard Chermak decided it was time to retire and sold the business to Noah France of France Construction in Woodinville. Noah and the Chermak family have been friends and business associates for years. This enabled Howard to retire and Noah to take the leadership of a company he has admired for years. Noah shares the same values of quality, integrity and service that have characterized this company for 37 years and we look forward to an exciting future of serving our customers throughout the greater Seattle area.
