Who We Are

“Oak Construction was established in 1980 by Mike Purnell and continues to operate under his experience and expertise.”

As a result, Oak Construction has become very well known in the local building community earning the reputation of being a quality driven, hands on builder offering each client the individual attention necessary to surpass their expectations.

While Oak Construction operates primarily in the ocean side resort towns of Lewes, Rehoboth, and Dewey, we have undertaken projects in all corners of Sussex County and southern Kent County.

Our Vision

From small to large projects, our goal is to increase the function of your home, making it a beautiful well-designed space. We strive to understand the needs of our clients and implement the most cost effective solutions.

At Oak Construction, we strive to build quality homes and businesses while providing attentive customer service. We work closely with the subcontractors and suppliers to make sure your home is built to your and our standards.

We understand building a home can be stressful for the customer. We make every effort to ease your anxieties and concerns while construction is under way.

Things That Matter

Oak Construction proudly enjoys a positive reputation among our customers,trade partners, business partners and the general public. We credit our positive reputation to our commitment to customer satisfaction via our pledge not to consider a job complete until the customer is satisfied.

We give our promise to work with integrity and back our words with superior results. Choosing Oak Construction means you are choosing a company backed by years of experience with a positive reputation earned over time.

With 27 years of experience in the industry, it’s easy to understand why we have relationships with some of the best construction trades in the industry. We like to call them “our Trade Partners”, and some of them have been teamed up with the Oak Construction for decades.

It is as a result of these partnerships that superior craftsmanship is achieved! We also have established relationships with the area’s most talented architects and engineers who can assist our customers with project design. You will discover a commitment to teamwork within our organization that results in a smoother, more hassle-free experience for you, our customer.

At Oak Construction, we take pride in our outstanding customer service. It’s a commitment we make at the start of each and every project we undertake.

That means, whether you leave us a voice mail, send us an email or are awaiting a project cost bid, project details, project completion or answers to your questions, you can expect a quick response and prompt results. Additionally, we strive for on-time delivery whether it’s delivery of your proposal or “delivery” of your completed project. Count on us for quality and timeliness!

We are a results-oriented organization. We set goals, and we achieve them! Our primary goal is customer satisfaction, but there are secondary goals established to help us reach that. Those goals include listening intently to our customers’ needs and bringing their visions to life.

Whether our customers know exactly what they want-down to the smallest detail-or perhaps only have ideas from magazine pages they’ve collected over the years, our experienced team has a knack for listening and guiding a buyer through the process. We also strive to be sensitive to a buyer’s projected budgetsometimes even helping a buyer establish the budget.

A company can build or renovate a home, but to do it to satisfy a customer’s needs and wishes and to do so within budget, requires a high level of dedication and skill.

The greatest compliment we can receive is to get a referral from our current or previous customers. But even if our customers don’t have someone to refer to us, many of them have taken the time to tell us how pleased they are and have given us permission to share their testimonials with others.
