When you choose us to be your general contractor, you get friendly, professional construction help with the promise of timely results and full customer satisfaction. We are proud to serve Deer Park and Houston, TX, as well as many surrounding communities.


What We Do

When we say we’re general contractors, we mean it. No matter what kind of business you run or what type of building/facilities you need help with, our experienced construction professionals can build, repair, remodel or retrofit it to suit your unique needs.


The following are just a few examples of the kinds of work we can do for you:


•    New building construction

We build offices, multifamily dwellings, retail properties, hotels, medical facilities, and warehouses as well as metal buildings and special purpose buildings. Our team manages all phases of construction, from design and planning to building completion.


•    Repairs

Customers relying on a Houston general contractor for building, parking lot, and sidewalk repair can depend on us for quality results that last. We specialize in concrete driveway repair, concrete step repair, pavement repair, and concrete crack repair; epoxy repair services are also available.


•    Retrofitting of earthquake safety systems

In Houston, foundation repairs are not uncommon, and we can provide seismic retrofitting to ensure your building remains stable. Retrofitting for sustainability can be completed in Pasadena, TX, and our other service areas, so your business can be committed to protecting the environment while remaining profitable.


•    Basework

Our Houston general contractors perform grading, using the proper tools and techniques to ensure surfaces are level, flat, and smooth. We can raise or lower a road surface or driveway to reduce steepness and improve drainage on properties throughout the Houston area.


•    Concrete laying

The concrete laying process requires the proper tools and expertise to ensure solid, high-quality results. Our contractors can lay the concrete for sidewalks, patios, floors, driveways, and building foundations for commercial applications in La Porte, TX and beyond.


•    Metal building construction

Insured and bonded to design/construct steel buildings in Houston, Pasadena, Pearland, TX, etc., we account for every specification in the prefabrication process. Prefabricated structures can be built in less time and we ensure they can handle the necessary loads, are properly insulated, and exterior details are accounted for.


•    Interior remodeling/refinishing

Homeowners in the area, including Channelview, TX, can trust Derk Harmsen Construction for kitchen and bathroom/shower remodeling, taking out unwanted walls, and interior finishing such as updating cabinetry, hanging wallpaper, and installing flooring. We handle painting jobs and do fireplaces as well.
