Our Story
Baratto Brothers Construction is a general contractor, custom home and commercial builder that has been doing business in the Brainerd Lakes Area for over 15 years. Jim Baratto began the family business after working as an Industrial Arts educator for twenty-five years. As an educator, he taught many students the art of wood craftsmanship and construction. Now he has hired many of his former students who learned the highest standards of quality building from him. This has elevated the image of Baratto Brothers to where it is today–our principles bring to the table years of experience, excellent service, and attention to detail.

As Baratto Brothers has grown, we have continued to expand our scope of projects and have gained a reputation in the industry for our meticulous style of craftsmanship. The fit and finish of every project receives careful attention to detail to satisfy the needs of the client. Our successes include everything from small additions, to remodels, to custom homes, and commercial projects.

Baratto Brothers Construction is committed to providing the kind of service you’d expect–and deserve. We look forward to working with you and becoming Your Builder For Life.

Jim Baratto started Baratto Brothers Construction in 2002. The company reported Jim’s philosophy of craftsmanship and service has been, and remains to be, one of surrounding himself with skilled craftsmen and employees that embrace honestly and hard work. He stated he feels it is the company’s responsibility for a lifetime commitment to projects no matter how big or small they are.
