The History of Trace Creek Construction, Inc.

Humble Beginnings and Bright Future

Trace Creek was founded in the basement of Sam Howard’s home in 1993. With $5,000 saved from the construction costs of his new home, Sam built a company with a sterling reputation and a staff of talented professionals. Organized as Sub Chapter S Corporation in the State of Kentucky, we are proud of our company, its capabilities and the legacy we have created.

Our projects are consistently delivered on time and on budget, creating a professional network of satisfied clients that return to us for additional projects. In fact, 65% of our business is repeat clients.

In just over 20 years of operation, Trace Creek’s successful operations, financial stability and visionary approach have allowed the company to achieve a position of respect and prestige that is the envy of the regional construction industry. The future for Trace Creek is bright indeed.
