Bill Kraeling, Owner Profile

Delivering Exceptional Construction and Outstanding Service.


After graduating from college, 11 years in the United States Army as an Apache Pilot, and over 6 years in corporate management, Bill Kraeling had finally reached a turning point in his life and focused on his first real passion.
In one word ... BUILDING.

Bill initially learned the ins and outs of the construction industry while working for a small specialty building company. While there were many positive lessons gleaned during those years, Bill yearned to be in full control as a business owner and to have the freedom to treat his clients the way he expected to be treated. As a former military officer, his standards were quite high and he quickly embarked on a new era of service excellence within the building industry. ETL Construction was born!
