Charlie onstruction

My name is Gerald Bumgardner but I have always been Charlie for as long as I can remember hence the name of my company. I am a small town farm boy from central MN with a strong work ethic. I came to Bemidji in 1990 for college and fell in love with the area. Here is where I met my wife and now have two children. After college I worked various jobs one which was for a contractor for eight years. It was after that job that I went out on my own. I have worked for myself for ten years now. I am currently licensed and insured.  

When I am not working I love to hunt and fish. The reason for me starting my own business was I felt that people were paying too much for small jobs and had to wait too long for their projects to be completed. I started with the idea that I would charge a reasonable amount and only do one job at a time. I still hold that philosophy today. I would love to prove it to you.

In 2009 Charlie built a building for me which was going to occupy my store, Roger's Wireless and another tenant which is now Keck's Sports. The building is located behind Ground Round, Next to Target in Bemidji.

Charlie was fast, reliable and very reasonable. He pays attention to detail and whenever there was something that needed to be adjusted or fixed he would come as soon as he could to address it. I would recommend Charlie out for any job whether big or small. I have always been pleased with all the work he has done for me.

My wife and I hired Charlie in the summer of 2011 to install tongue and groove in all rooms inside our cabin on Cass Lake. He was very reasonably priced and he completed the job on time according to our specifications. In addition, his workmanship was outstanding. Charlie takes great pride in his work and I would strongly recommend him to anyone that has a project. I think you will find him to be hard working, dedicated and talented at what he does.


It started with a leak between my bathroom and bedroom closet wall that created a mold problem in the closet. Charlie re-roofed my house and garage. He then reconstructed my closet, remodeled my bathroom and then my kitchen, even moving a wall so that I could install a larger refrigerator in my smaller kitchen space and created a pantry from an entry closet. Charlie's work is exceptional, quick, efficient, great attention to detail, and his price is even better than his other attributes. When I refinanced my house so that I could re-side my home and my garage, the first and only person I contacted was Charlie Bumgardner. My house is now entirely paint free thanks to Charlie. He installed all new siding, even matching the run of the siding around my bay window so that it looks like one continuance siding run. He installed new windows in the garage along with overhead garage door stops. I came up with a brainstorm (Charlie tells me I have too much time on my hands) to have him install a faux stacked stone foundation with a product called GenStone. Charlie did a beautiful job, even wrapping my chimneys with the faux stone. Again, his attention to detail is exceptional. I told him when I win the lottery, I will have him build my addition. There is no other person that I would trust or rely on to complete any type of construction project.
