Celebrating 50 Years!

It is hard to beleive it has been 50 years since we incorporated in 1968. As you know, Schaerer Contracting is the result of a long history of successful projects and lasting relationships. Our roots were planted in 1927, from humble beginnings, when Warner “Pap” Schaerer started the family owned plastering company.

We are so incredibly thankful to each and every customer and client we have worked with over the last 50 years and we can't wait for the next 50! Every day has been a distinct honor and quite frankly and adventure we can only hope to top with each and every project we do.

A little more history on us... In 1935, Emil Tucker Schaerer joined his father at the age of 21 and continued to grow the business throughout the southeast by delivering quality, skilled workmanship to all clients. In 1968 Schaerer Contracting was incorporated by our 3 rd generation, E. T. “Bud” Schaerer II. Bud, an Army Lieutenant in the 1 st Armored Division, used his military leadership skills as he continued to grow the company into the general contracting company we are today, enjoying many large scale projects during his tenure.

Now we are under the leadership of our fourth generation, Burton Tucker Schaerer. Burt graduated from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 1985 and joined the company. Burt brought with him management and business development skills that have allowed Schaerer Contracting to grow abundantly under his direction while continuing the family traditions of building relationships and excellence in construction quality.


Schaerer Contracting is now the contractor of choice for many large scale clients throughout the United States, having completed projects in 15 different states! We are looking back on our storied history and wonderful projects with hope and excitement for what the future holds for us! We hope you are along for the ride as well.
