Kinzler Construction Services History
Kinzler Begins Installing Insulation
One day in 1988, a customer calls with a huge problem. With hogs en route and the Iowa winter coming fast, the customer’s insulation contractor stood him up. He called Kevin for a solution. First, Kevin agreed to do everything he possibly could to solve the customer’s problem. Next, he employed every friend, coworker, and family member possible (including 8 year-old son Tanner) and Kinzler was in the insulation business.
Kinzler Invents & Patents High-R
Kevin Kinzler invented and patented a metal building ceiling insulation system called “High-R”. The system continues to be marketed world-wide.
Insulating Texas Since 1942
Kinzler Construction Services’ roots in Texas go back to the early 1940’s. Our local insulation experts based in Tyler are all employee-owners of the company. Today, our business has grown but we’re still local. Still family. Still serving the communities we love in east Texas.
