A second-generation mason, David Koppen began his career by working under his father, Charles Koppen - a local bricklayer and masonry contractor. He also learned some tricks of the trade from his uncle who was in the stucco business. David joined the Union Bricklayers Local #1, served an apprenticeship for three years and was taught by local craftsmen the correct methods of construction. He worked for larger contractors like McGough, and OPUS, for a number of years on large commercial projects.
David started his own business in 1983 and has been building a reputation for top-notch professional work ever since. He specialized in residential work, and worked for years in new construction for fine builders such asCustom One Homes. Most of the brickwork and concrete work on their earlier homes was done by Koppen Concrete and Masonry.
We are currently focused on the remodeling industry, which includes working for private homeowners or home remodeling contractors doing such things as foundations for additions, concrete floors, sidewalks, steps, driveways, garage floors, patios, along with some colored and stamping work. We also do concrete and masonry repairs for businesses.
Koppen Concrete and Masonry has left a lasting mark on the community with our great craftsmanship. Koppen Concrete and Masonry was selected by the Marriott Courtyard in Mendota Heights to enhance their gardens, where we created a beautiful area for meetings and meditation.
A Hands-On Owner:
Dave Koppen has purposely kept his company small, with just a few employees, so he can continue to be a hands-on person working in the field. This guarantees that he knows the work is being done to his specifications and high standards.
We limit ourselves to how much work we accept so we do not have to cut corners to finish existing projects. Most projects are started and stuck with to the finish before we start another project. Each job is performed as if it was on our own home. We do not cut corners. We feel that homeowners should get what they pay for.
The Koppen family has been part of this community for 60 years. David grew up in Woodbury, MN. He has seen many changes in the Twin Cities' growth from farm fields to sprawling homes and developments.
