About Us

Our Owner

Keith Lee UnderkoflerKeith Lee Underkofler, the proprietor, has been in the construction industry for more than two decades with a career that began in Bucks County.

“I have always had a great love and desire for building things from a very young age, my favorite childhood toys where my TONKA dump truck and cement mixer. I remember being very young and wanting to be a part of every project that I saw. My grandfather was a contractor as well and worked for people such as Frank Lloyd Wright when he was working in the area. Maybe I inherited my love for the industry from him, I don’t know, I only know I can’t live without it and am always thinking about it.”

“I spent many summers in my early years working as general labor for framing companies that were building new homes. I enjoyed the physical work out, learning the trade and the pace of the work. I went on over the years to develop diverse skill sets in all areas of construction and general contracting. I have apprenticed for carpenters, flooring installers, general and electrical contractors, commercial and residential. I am also well versed in, plumbing, drywall installation, roofing, siding and many other areas of construction.”

How it started

Keith Lee Underkofler officially opened KLU Electrical Contracting in 2003. He served Home Builders and Private Customers, although his main focus was on custom homes. Throughout the success of KLU Electrical Construction Keith continued to develop his skills and began General Contracting in 2006. His first major project would be a complete renovation of his personal residence. A perfect testing ground for his skill sets, and at his own cost. The project entailed transforming a 900 square foot mid-century ranch into a 2400 square foot home. Keith and his family lived in the home during the construction, thus knowing firsthand what his customers experience during similar projects.

Keith has assisted in the development and construction of hundreds of homes and offices in our area and also the Jersey Shore. From multi-million dollar customs to small basement fixes, fire restoration jobs and storm-damaged homes. Keith Builders is eager to bring years of practical experience and knowledge to you and your project.
“ I surround myself with the best in every field and have a team assembled and waiting to come to you and start the latest project.”
