Mandere Construction and Quality Framing

Mandere Construction, Inc is a Rathdrum, ID based framing company. MCI specializes in commercial framing, and has a great deal of experience in residential framing.

John Mandere formed Mandere Construction in 1992. The company was started with one employee and a very small amount of equipment. In the first two years the focus was on residential framing.

MCI was extremely fortunate and put a very good team together early on. With the acquisition of key personnel, Mandere Construction was able to begin taking on multiple projects.

In 1994, John Mandere made the decision to incorporate. MCI began framing small commercial projects. This eventually led to more growth within the company. MCI began taking on larger projects. Today, Mandere Construction has an employee and equipment base to frame multiple large projects.

We knew right away that we wanted Mandere Construction to frame our “Dream Home”. After the contract was signed, they started right away. The crew was efficient and made sure the site was clean. We are very pleased with the process and the “final product” of a framed home ready to complete. Should you choose Mandere Construction, you will not be disappointed.
