Following in the footsteps of their father and grandfather, Perry and Ray Merlo founded Merlo Construction Company, Inc. in 1991. Thanks to their dynamic vision and strong work ethic, Merlo Construction has evolved from a small concrete contractor into a company that can offer a vast scope of work, including demolition, earthwork, utilities, concrete foundations, interior flatwork, site concrete, and curb and gutter. This diverse range of services saves our customers time, energy, and the cost of using several subcontractors on the same project.

We utilize the most current construction technology, beginning with state-of-the-art estimating software used during the bidding process. In addition, on every awarded project, GPS files are created in-house to be used with our GPS-equipped grading equipment, which ensures both precision and accuracy. We also take great pride in owning and operating a whole fleet of late-model excavating and heavy construction equipment, as well as laser screeds equipped with 3D technology.
