Providing Quality General Contracting Services Since 1987


Northern California’s Premier Contracting Firm

Welcome to Frank Borges Jr. General Contracting!

Frank Borges Jr. Philosophy

Building practices in California, and specifically Napa County, have changed dramatically since we started our company in 1987. Building codes have evolved, permitting has become more constrained and land use scrutiny is at an all-time high. Building methods, materials, and equipment continue to change and improve.

In Napa County, though, we are also faced with other serious challenges – including earthquakes, fire safety, and flood risks. Our construction philosophy is not only understand our clients’ design and style preferences but also to help them wade through these changes and challenges so we can provide them with the best service and end result possible for their project.

This includes understanding and addressing our client’s expectations for cost, timing, and communication to lessen the anxiety that comes with major building projects.

About Frank and Sheri

Frank Borges, Jr. Background

A native and lifetime resident of St. Helena, Napa Valley, Frank began work in the construction trade during the summer months in the late 1970s at Harold Smith and Son. Co-owned by his father at the time, Harold Smith and Son not only offered Frank a great opportunity to learn about construction but taught him lifelong skills in organization, timeliness, and communication.

Upon graduation from high school, Frank continued developing his passion for the construction business by working for a builder’s supply company and two construction firms. Frank got his contractor’s license in 1987 and upon the death of his last employer and mentor, Dick Howell of Howell and Lee Construction, Frank established his own contracting firm with his wife Sheri in 1987.

Frank has actively participated in every phase of commercial and residential construction. He has supervised the construction of projects that included a ten-acre shopping center, large custom residences, remodels and expansions of world-class restaurants and resorts, and multiple wineries.

Frank and Sheri have three children and four grandchildren. Frank is an avid outdoorsman.
