San Francisco Bay Area General Contractor:
How Bill Fry began Custom Home Building and Home Remodeling


San Francisco Bay Area Remodeling Contractor and Fine Home Builder: Bill FryThe Wm. H. Fry Construction Company began with Bill Fry, who has been building and improving homes in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 20 years. Bill grew up under the tutelage of his contractor father and renewed his interest in construction while working his way through his university studies in business. He then trained as a Journeyman Carpenter (a four-year training program). His talents in all phases of construction and natural leadership skills quickly earned him a foreman position building over 100 hillside homes at Portola Valley Ranch. Bill obtained his Contractors’ License in 1987 and assembled a world class team who builds remodels, additions and new homes. When it comes to building residential projects, we consider our company to be the professionals’ choice. The quality and value presented by the Wm. H. Fry Construction Company has so impressed our professional colleagues, that we have built the personal projects of architects, designers, structural engineers, suppliers, and other professionals in the trades. We take pride in the quality of our workmanship, our attention to detail, and the personalized service we provide for our clients.
