History of KenCo Builders , Inc. CGC035898


Ken Fernandez went into construction right out of high school and work on 100’s of construction jobs until starting General Drywall in 1974 doing drywall , metal framing, furring, spray ceilings, stucco, painting, acoustical ceilings and insulation. Our projects included commercial,residential and multi family.

In 1985 enrolled into Construction Academy and received a state Certified General Contractors license in 1986 at which time KenCo Builders ,Inc. was incorporated.

For the past 30 years our company has built hundreds of homes in south Florida. We were a model home builder for Coral Ridge Properties for over 10 years building custom homes in Coral Spring and Parkland with five operating models in seven communities until 2002.

We then began building custom homes in Plantation , Davie , Jacaranda , El Dorado Estates , Lago Mar , Plantation Acres , Rio Vista , Citrus Isle , Lauderdale Harbors in Broward County ,FL with many high end homes in east Ft. Lauderdale with ocean access.

We have also been doing additions/ remodeling/renovations, wood floors , door installation/repairs , trim and crown molding , drywall , stucco , knock down ceiling spray and home services.

Ken Jr. has been with the company since high school thru the DCT/OJT program and is vice president. He is job supervisor and personally installs the finish carpentry in our projects with 20 years experience.


I have used Kenco Builders numerous times over the last 25 years , for projects ranging from a closet re-model , bathroom re-model to the installation of crown molding , window and door replacement and casing to the installation of a complete tongue and groove ceiling , In each case I was very happy with the finished product and thought the pricing to be fair for the quality of work performed . I would not hesitate to recommend this builder to others and in fact , I have on a number of occasions , the feed back I received from those referrals has consistently been positive .

KenCo Builders was referred to me by a friend that had a new custom home built by them and they were completely satisfied from beginning to end.   I called Kenco Builders for a bid to do renovations to our older home in Fort Lauderdale.  We are absentee owners, and wouldn’t be present during most of the construction phase, so trust and security was an important issue.  After checking out more of their references and getting two additional bids from other companies I hired KenCo.  The price was fair, their reputation is sterling and the fact that they did not require a deposit made me feel comfortable.
We started with exterior doors, impact windows and crown modeling and as the job went on we added wood floors, baseboards and knockdown ceilings. The quality of their workmanship was superb.  Anytime my wife & I were on the job there was never a mess.  Our home was always neat & clean and most importantly it was secure.  These guys are truly craftsmen and I recommend them highly. I have recently recommended them to a family member in Plantation and am presently receiving positive feedback.  Not only does the owner, Ken Fernandez, run a tight ship he is fair & honest and a pleasure to deal with.
