“My building is a combination of commercial and residential (approximately 1700 sq. feet) and is located at 24386 Overseas Highway, Summerland Key.  In 2007, I selected Rudy because I trusted him to do a good job and treat me fairly. I have known Rudy for more than 30 years and I greatly respect his knowledge and reputation. During the construction, Rudy made many suggestions that made my building stronger and saved me money. Rudy Krause Construction did the job right and finished on schedule. I have been living and working in the building now for seven years and I am very satisfied with the construction.”
