About DeKam Construction

Our History

In 1973, Roger DeKam began what is now DeKam Construction. He was taught by a close uncle, who had to that point run a very successful tiling business for over 30 years. Every part of DeKam Construction's heritage comes from a family taught, owned and operated business that today still has those values. From cement to the newer corrugated polyethylene tile, DeKam Construction has installed the best of that day's technology. In early 2004, John, Roger's son took over the company as CEO.
