Our History

Construction Specialties of North Florida was started by David Hacker in 2006 while he was a sophomore at UNF’s Construction Management Program. They found their niche installing code required storm protection for new home builders. When the Florida Building Code relaxed to no longer require shutters, the company diversified and began offering screen enclosures & seamless gutters.

The company continued to diversify by offering other scopes of work their clients had needs for. Today, Construction Specialties offers full service Exterior Cladding, Hardscapes & Fireplaces. They have over 30 employees & are proud to work with over 50 of the top builders in North Florida.
