Our Story

Joel Stickler is the owner and operator of Stickler Construction LLC, husband to his dear wife Alesia and father to his 5 beautiful children Caleb, Faith, Aiden, Juliet, and Levi. He has been operating in the construction field since 1995 working on a variety of projects; from new multi-million dollar custom homes, to full home renovations and additions. In 2002, he made the decision to take the extensive knowledge he had obtained over the previous seven years and start Stickler Construction. The company originally opened for business in Albany NY where it grew it’s client base and sought to establish a reputation that would set it apart from the competition. As one project after another was begun and completed, it became evident that the policies, beliefs, and operating procedures which have been present in the company from its inception, were bringing it significant success and giving it real traction in the community. After the economy collapsed in 2008, project leads became increasingly stagnant as progressively more families were holding on to their disposable income and guarding their finances more closely. This downturn caused other big contracting companies to flood the renovating market so much so, that some were forced to close their doors, while others chose to move their operations elsewhere. Stickler Construction chose the latter, and so in 2011 was reestablished in Crestwood, Kentucky under the name of Stickler Construction LLC. In it’s first year, the company provided service for many customers and began to truly establish itself in the community. Joel and his family look forward to growing their business and are eager to help you with all your renovation and remodeling projects.
