Home > A Tradition Of Quality

A home built by Gustave Gertz in Lorain, Ohio, Circa 1914When you select St. Clair Builders to design and construct your new home, you benefit from the experience of three generations dedicated to a single purpose: to build, in limited quantities, fine homes of enduring quality and timeless architecture.

Gustave Gertz began building custom homes in Lorain, Ohio in 1914. As the years passed and his reputation grew, he often brought his son Blake to the jobsite, where the young boy was intrigued by the master carpenters who could, it seemed, create virtually anything using simple hand tools. This fascination with craftsmanship, quality and creativity has lasted a lifetime,and today is the driving force behind the success of St. Clair Builders.

Founded in 1984, St. Clair Builders continues a tradition established decades earlier, and carries it through to succeeding generations. With the passing of patriarch Blake Gertz at age 86 in 2002, and the retirement of ASID interior designer Diane Gertz, today the St. Clair team includes sons Michael Gertz (CET, Fl State Certified General Contractor) and Robert Gertz (BASc, BCom, Fl State Certified General Contractor). The comprehensive team approach is the foundation for St. Clair Builders' strict quality control program.

Through the integration of technical and artistic design, Old World craftsmanship and modern technology, St. Clair Builders has reestablished the European tradition of the Master Builder, who is intimately involved in every phase of the design and construction of the custom home. After over twenty years of creating homes which are unique and architecturally distinctive, the St. Clair Builders team has demonstrated the effectiveness of this approach.

While adopting the exciting new technologies that have been developed over the years, the firm has adhered to the traditional principles of honesty, integrity, value and service. These principles, coupled with a commitment to design excellence, have enabled St. Clair Builders to carry on the tradition established over ninety years ago by Gustave Gertz: to build fine homes of enduring value, which will last through generations.
