The history of our company
Diamond Cut Homes was established in 2007 by Alex Burlakov, company president and general contractor. To date, his company has worked on some 300 homes, mostly single-family, as well as attached-unit homes and businesses.
Many customers invite Alex back for new work, and refer him to friends and neighbors.
Alex started in the construction industry in 2001, installing siding, windows and roofing, painting and other services. He learned quickly and rose to management.
He realized he most enjoyed working directly with customers at their homes, rather than managing others, and decided to start his own company.
“I like being being present and involved in every job myself and that way I know exactly what's going on,” says Alex.
He keeps up-to-date with courses on how to properly install a wide range of materials, both for exterior and interior improvements. This allows him to offer you a broad choice of products to stay within your budget.
Alex also stays educated on updated building laws and code requirements.
The company's office is based in Brooklyn Park, MN, and Diamond Cut Homes serves the entire Twin Cities metro area or farther.
Alex's wife, Yelena, is the office administrator and the best business partner Alex could have, he says. Yelena also offers design advice if you would like guidance on colors and styles.
Diamond Cut Homes is insured and licensed by the state of Minnesota. The company provides labor warranties and products with the best warranties available.
