About Us

K Squared Construction has been serving the greater Sacramento area since 2006 with complete commercial and residential contracting services. Our dedicated team is comprised of experienced, reliable craftsmen, ensuring that your projects are completed on time, with high-quality products, and just the way you imagined.

At K Squared, we operate under the belief that quality work and a commitment to the customer produces the best results. We stand by two promises which often get lost in this industry:

  • First, when we set foot on the job, we will be there every day until it’s complete. We won’t leave you hanging in the middle of your renovation.
  • Second, we promise to always be available. Though different members of our team have specialized roles on the job, everyone is available to address your questions and concerns. You can always get in touch with both owners, who are involved throughout the duration of your project.

Our expert team can take care of everything, from repairing concrete to building an entire commercial space, installing new kitchen cabinets to a complete addition and renovation. We offer design services in-house, so there’s no need to hire an interior designer, and can even take care of basic electrical and plumbing work. When necessary, we call on experienced, trustworthy partners with whom we’ve worked for years, ensuring that your home or building is in safe hands.

When you work with K Squared, you work with caring, experienced experts. We do everything in our power to listen to our customers, provide options and recommendations, and deliver the best possible results.

Phone: 916-988-9473

Rusty first founded the company in 2006 under the name  ‘R.E.Krouse Construction.’ Since then the company has grown from a small, home business with just a few employees to a full scale Residential & Commercial General Contracting & Design Firm. In 2011, Rusty and his wife Brenna - a Certified Interior Designer incorporated the business and named it K Squared.  Rusty and the K Squared crew can be seen doing what they do best on several HGTV and DIY network shows including Kitchen Crashers, House Crashers, Yard Crashers and America's Most Desperate Kitchens.

“I love that we have been able to grow without disconnecting from our customers. My customers know that, whether or not I am on site that day, they can always call me with questions on my personal cell phone. I get phone calls from customers from years past – just calling to say ‘hello’. That means more to me than anything. Customers are the lifeblood of our business and I treat every one of them like a part of our family; not just another client.” – Rusty Krouse
