New owners of construction firm add to services

New owners plan to continue the operations of a Grand Valley construction company while also offering additional services.

Roger Croker and Brett Wade have taken over ownership of 970 Construction Co. and bring a total of more than 60 years of experience to the business.

970 Construction continues to offer home construction, remodeling and home improvement services. But the company also offers handyman services, emphasizing services that enable seniors to remain in their homes.

“We wanted to bring the community a handyman service at affordable pricing with an emphasis on home accessibility services for senior citizens,” Croker said. “We’ve assembled a team of skilled craftsmen to accommodate every homeowner need in an affordable, professional manner at the highest quality.”

Wade agreed. “This is a topic very close to our heart. We all understand aging is a natural part of life. As we age, we start to lose strength and mobility. Some of the tasks that were once easy become increasingly more difficult. It’s important that a home is accommodating of these changes, and 970 Construction has created an entire division devoted to ensuring the seniors in our community age safely and comfortably in their own homes.”

The company installs handrails, keyless entry systems and wheelchair ramps as well as widens doorways and replaces doorknobs. “We will even mow the lawn if that is what is needed,” Wade said.
