Garage Construction In Dodge, Outagamie, and Winnebago Counties
We build new detached shops and garages

Have you been considering the addition of a new detached garage or shop on your property?  Adding a garage to your home has many advantages such as the massive increase in secure, dry, storage space.  Maybe you'd like a place for your hobbies, somewhere secure for your boat, classic cars, or other toys?  Building a new detached garage and shop is also an excellent investment in your home and will increase your property value.

Brad's Construction is a local, family-owned construction company based out of Mayville, WI and serving all of Dodge County, Wisconsin.  We specialize in the construction of new detached garages and shops.  From a simple single car detached garaged to a full blown shop with bay doors we can complete the work from start-to-finish.

New Attached Garage Construction

Attached garages, built as an extension of your existing home rather than a standalone structure, are perfect for those seeking convenient access to their house and a seamless blend with existing architecture. They not only enhance the aesthetics and functionality of your home but also increase property value. In designing these garages, we prioritize energy efficiency, ensuring proper insulation and ventilation, while maintaining a seamless aesthetic that complements your home’s structure.

Detached Garage Construction

Detached garages offer more design flexibility and privacy, making them ideal for properties with more land. These standalone structures can serve multiple purposes, from vehicle storage to hobby spaces. Our approach focuses on creating a design that blends with your property’s overall aesthetic and caters specifically to your needs, whether it’s for storage, vehicles, boats, or just a personal retreat.

Pole Barn or Pole Building Construction

Pole barns, constructed with large poles supporting the roof, are versatile and cost-effective solutions for a variety of uses, including agricultural storage, workshops, or livestock shelters. The quick construction process and adaptability make them a popular choice in rural areas. We ensure that these structures are built to withstand Wisconsin’s climate, considering factors like insulation for year-round use, snow load capacity, and wind resistance.

Shop Construction

Custom-built shops are tailored to fit personal hobbies, or even small business needs. These dedicated spaces can be equipped with everything from specialized storage to heavy-duty power outlets, or over-sized doors, depending on your activity, be it woodworking, car repairs, or any other hobby. Our focus is on creating a functional yet inspiring space, incorporating elements like custom layouts, lighting, and proper ventilation to cater to your specific requirements.

There are numerous reasons for a family living in Wisconsin to have a garage.

  • Securely park your vehicles.
  • Securely store toys such as Motorcycles and Boats.
  • Never scrape your car windows in the winter again!
  • A warm and dry place for a workshop.
  • Secure storage.
  • Better resale value.

With some townships even allowing a suite above the garage it’s a great place to turn into a home office or even a revenue generating rental that would eventually pay for itself.

(local codes and bylaws will apply)  We are flexible  in the shape, roof pitch and design.  We will build a Garage for you and your family that truly meets your needs and best utilizes your available space and budget.

We realize that you've got many choices when it comes to choosing a building contractor to help you design and build a garage for your Wisconsin home. We want you to know we understand and appreciate the commitment you are about to make to your home and we take it very seriously.

What Our Customers Say...


I hired Brad's to add on to my existing composite deck. I removed my hot tub and wanted to extend the deck to fill the area. Justin and Taylor came up with some great options to tie in the new deck portion with the older, weathered deck. They were very informative and stayed on top of communication during the entire process. Even though my project was a fairly small one, they treated it like it was the most important job. I would highly recommend consulting with Brad's if you were looking to have some work done.

Brian Hicks March 4, 2022

We had a garage fire & they came to rescue! We decided to add to the garage instead of replacing the shed that burned & Brad's did a great job with the project. The customer service was great also, communicating with us to keep us in the loop of when inspections were needed & days they weren't able to be here. We are so glad to have a garage back before the snow really starts to fly.

Randi Turner December 25, 2021

When it came time to replace our roof it was a real pleasure dealing with Brad and Taylor. Communication was terrific and they were quick to respond to any questions that we had. The crew did a great job with the installation and we've received several compliments from friends and neighbors on the finished project. We recommend that you give them a call and talk about your next project.

Rob McCoy November 9, 2021

We hired Brad's Construction to redo our roof a few months ago and we couldn't be more pleased. He was prompt in every way and our roof was done perfectly. They were able to get it done in a day, and left behind no mess in our driveway. We would recommend them to everyone, and would definitely hire them again.

Jessa Vermillion October 21, 2021

They did a great job, we just had a fire and they came out to tarp the roof, before the storms hit. They went above and beyond what was asked or expected.

I would highly recommend Brad’s Construction. His team installed a composite deck with new railings for me. They were friendly, professional, hard working and did an awesome job. They explained all of my options, gave their recommendations and performed the work expertly. I could not be happier and will definitely hire them for future projects.

Sheryl Andrews May 1, 2021

I contacted Brad's construction to replace the shingles on my house and garage. My street was being redone at the same time I was planning but they were very patient with me and answered any questions I had. They finished within 2 days of the start date and cleaned up very well. Would never know they came! I'm very impressed with my roof and would highly recommend these guys to anybody looking to get their roof done. Highly professional and competitive pricing!

rpagenkopf90 November 10, 2020

We had brad’s construction install a basement egress window for us. The whole process from start to finish went awesome. Brad is super friendly, knowledgeable, and a excellent craftsman. They did an excellent job cleaning up daily and took every precaution to leaving our yard and home looking better than they arrived. Most of all the window looks absolutely terrific. I couldn’t be happier with the choice we made to have brad’s construction do this project. I would recommend to anyone!!

Casey Patasius November 10, 2020

Brad and Taylor were professional in their quote process right through installation of our new roof. The crew arrived on time as promised, were friendly, cleaned up each day as if they were never here. Project was finished in two days for a complete tear-off and shingle replacement. They even worked a ten hour day on a Sunday to finish after a rainy week. Highly recommend this business!

Joan Raether September 22, 2020

I had a great experience with Brad, his son, Taylor, and their team ripping out our aging organic shingles and replacing it Owens Corning singles. They showed up ready to work when they promised; and always called or sent a text to let us know if they would be late. Brad and his team not only went above and beyond with the quality of their work but made recommendations based on their experience. When they removed the old shingles, they uncovered some areas that needed re-decking. They repaired the decking and did not raise the quoted price even after finding a few issues. Not only did they beat the estimated timeline provided but beat EVERY quote around us. They were able to deliver a finished product that exceeded beyond our expectations. Great service, best pricing, local, responsive and dependable! Very professional!

Alan S September 16, 2020
