About Sorter Construction
Founded by Bill and Lois Sorter, Sorter Construction has been in business in the Grand Junction area for 63 years. We average 20-30 projects per year around the valley, depending on the size of the job. We are one of the oldest, family-owned construction businesses in Western Colorado, and we are truly dedicated to staying local to the area. Sorter Construction provides jobs for over 30 Grand Junction residents. Sorter Construction is able to provide almost all of the necessary workload in house. We subcontract with other local companies to handle the concrete and asphalt work.
Our Values As A Company
At Sorter Construction we believe in quality and honesty in all of our projects. Our longevity shows integrity in all of our work. Sorter Construction is unique in our high quality of work, and we specialize in an enormous variety of projects. If a community member calls our office looking for a “half a pickup full of dirt” or help with their irrigation, we will help with what we can, whether that be getting them the dirt they need, helping them haul the dirt, or just offering advice and direction. At Sorter Construction, we are big enough to handle projects that are over $1 million in scope as well. Sorter Construction is Community minded from the smallest to biggest earthwork projects.
