Our Story

the frantz
construction family

Frantz Construction owner and founder, Josh Frantz, has always dreamed big. In Josh’s words, he “doesn’t do things small.” From family barbecues to pursuing his faith, he puts everything he’s got into his passion projects.

After years of seeing families get burned by dishonest contractors, Josh dreamed of creating a construction company that was different. Focusing on the customer experience and treating employees with respect would be the guiding principles.

Remodeling or building your home should be rewarding and engaging, not stressful and draining. Too many contractors put profits before people – never-ending change orders, lack of communication, unclear project milestones. The list goes on.

Frantz Construction was created to break the mold of existing contractors and provide an experience that families can look forward to; an experience that prioritizes your satisfaction above all else.

Josh & Desra Frantz

Josh and Desra Frantz started Frantz Construction in February of 2018 and they make the perfect team! Josh has experience performing numerous trades in construction over the past 20 years and is our contractor while Desra has a Bachelor’s degree from Northwest University and leads our human resources and marketing departments.

Josh and Desra’s philosophy in running a construction business can best be defined as The Ethical Home. While that term is not original to them, they believe in dealing with Homeowners and Homebuilders ethically and honestly generating trust in all client relationships. They believe in producing a quality product on every job while using a system driven approach ensuring they always deliver on time. On date nights you might find them enjoying happy hour at Luna Red followed by dinner at Giuseppe’s in San Luis Obispo.

Before starting Frantz Construction, Desra played basketball at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria and Josh served in the Marine Corps achieving the rank of Sergeant. They live in Pismo Beach, California, with their sons Daniel, Andrew and their dog Gunner.
