Who We Are

Superior Framing Team

Our team lives to build dream homes.

Every member of our team is a direct employee – we don’t use any third-party contractors – so they’re heavily invested in the success of Superior Framing and in doing high quality framing. Our entire crew operates like one large family – hard, honest workers who are proud of every family home they build..

Over the years, Superior Framing has grown to include multiple crews, each led by a highly experienced foreman and staffed by hand-picked carpenters. Each crew specializes in elaborate, custom-designed homes. All-in-all, we’ve framed approximately 2,500 homes and buildings since 1996

Our 4-person crews are made up of: 1 Foreman, 1 Second Man and 2 General Carpenters – plus, Superior Framing owns and operates forklifts on every job site. We have crews located in all areas of the metro, and we do our best to accommodate new hires and place them on crews close to home.

Tim Bruner, Owner

Tim Bruner started Superior Framing in 2008, with the goal of building large custom homes for families across the Twin Cities metro.

Starting in construction with his brother-in-law in 1989, Tim has worked in the industry his entire life. Having worked as a contractor and subcontractor, he knows how important fair treatment is for clients and employees of framing companies. Tim started his first framing company in 1996, and branched Superior Framing off later.
