Meet the Office

Meet the Owner, Ryan Nelson. Born and raised in Albert Lea, Minnesota, he spent his early years watching his parents own and operate a family hardware store. This instilled the values of hard work and customer service at a young age. When he turned 16, Ryan joined the legion of teenagers to save up for a car. Realizing that working in a family hardware store wasn’t going to raise enough money, he sought a new job in construction. Almost 20 years later, Ryan is the proud owner of Snap Construction. He takes a lot of pride in Snap’s business and its ability to help people with their most important asset, their home.

100% Satisfied!!

“100% Satisfied!! Best experience I've ever had with a contractor to date! Not only was the job done well, but they were upfront and realistic on a timeline, and held to the initial estimated date.”

Ellie C.

Very responsive

“Snap Construction was very responsive in providing an estimate and executing the work. The contract was highly detailed and descriptive. The team was only here for about a day and a half and worked efficiently and carefully. The manager followed up with a personal visit and inspection and completed clean-up and touch-ups.”

Carolyn M.
