Our History

BACK Construction was formed in 1981 by Kyle Whalen and three partners. The business focus was primarily residential framing and building horse barns. In the first 12 years, BACK Construction built over 100 homes ranging in size from starter homes to large custom homes. By 1994, with only two original partners left, the company started to focus on remodeling. In 2003, Kyle purchased the rights to the company from the last original partner. Longtime employee, Rob Hundley became a principal owner in the business. Now, after 34+ years, BACK Construction is considered the premier remodeler in Central Kentucky.

Our Commitment to You

We are committed to you before, during and after your project. We have a full time Sales and Estimating staff in order to provide accurate and timely project pricing. We offer free estimates for all your project needs.

The quality of the remodeler will determine the quality of the finished work. BACK Construction has received the honor of Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR) designation. The CGR designation means that we meet or exceed the industry experience and business practice and have a proven track record of project management.

We will stand by our work with a warranty that is the best in the business. BACK Construction has successfully been meeting client’s expectations for 34+ years. Contact us today and let us show you how we can meet your needs and expectations.

Our People

Our “in-house” work-force, of 38 BACK Construction professionals, provides a unique service to you and your project. An “in-house” work-force is a different approach to how most new construction homebuilders and remodeling companies operate. They usually have only a few employees and sub-contract the majority of their work out. You deserve our hand-picked staff working with you on your project. When we work for you, you get BACK-trained professionals on your job!

Our Commitment to the Industry and Community

BACK Construction has been a leader in our industry for over 34 years. We are very active in our local Remodeling Council, and both owners, Kyle Whalen, founding member of BACK Construction, and Rob Hundley, have served as Chairman on the Council. Kyle served as President of the Home Builders of Lexington in 2009. Our commitment to the industry comes from a desire to “raise the bar” in our industry as a whole. This is a commitment that directly benefits our clients.

We are continually working to benefit the community that we live in and serve. We support charitable organizations such as YMCA Campaign for Kids, Bluegrass Miracle League, Habitat for Humanity, and many youth sports. Many members of the BACK organization are involved in making a difference in our community.

Our Warranty

We provide a five-year non-transferable warranty on our workmanship for most projects. We build it BACK better, so we stand behind our work!
