About

Our roots in the residential construction community were established in 2005 as “Koch Siding & Construction”,  a remodeling company focused exclusively on exteriors.  In 2014, flatwater builders was formed as a full service residential construction, remodeling, & design firm based in Lincoln, Nebraska.

My name is Tyler Koch.  I want to personally thank you for visiting our site, and take just a minute to explain our philosophy.  At flatwater builders, we do things a little different.  My experience with KS&C, in addition to serving as foreman, designer, and operations manager to four different local contractors, has taught me as much about what doesn’t work as it has about what does.

Every contractor will talk about experience, quality, cleanliness, etc.  flatwater builders’ policies ensure them:

  • Employees are paid a minimum of $18/ hour.  People who are “paid enough to care” and not living paycheck-to-paycheck are happier, more productive, and are more likely to be personally invested in the quality of the projects on which they work.
  • There is no smoking or swearing on our job sites.  Our office is your home.  Your family and neighbors should feel comfortable with our presence, not made to tolerate tobacco smoke or offensive language.
  • Direct involvement & supervision.  I am present at every job site every day.  This hands-on approach ensures continuity between the estimate, design, and construction phases of your project.  We are large enough to do the job, yet agile enough to do it well.
  • Lifetime warranty on workmanship.  We do not guarantee our work for one year.  We do not guarantee our work for five years.  We guarantee it for as long as you and your family are alive and in your home.  There is no statute of limitations on our craftsmanship.  Our goal is to earn your unqualified satisfaction and future business.
