Nine years ago, Lloyd Martindale had a difficult decision: accept the full-time job offer from Clackamas Community College to continue as head wrestling coach or, quit the college position and devote his effort into being a full time construction and remodeling contractor. “I’ve been very blessed and had a little success since then,” Martindale said. Continuing his passion for the sport, Martindale, a Parkrose resident, is a volunteer wrestling coach at the high school.

Lloyd Martindale, owner of C & K Construction in Parkrose, tightens the faucet on a new bathtub at one of his recent remodel jobs.

Growing up, he learned how to fix and repair things from his father, who maintained rental homes he owned. Later on, they bought houses together, fixing them up for resale. Through that process, Martindale got his contracting license with the Oregon Construction Contractors Board, started his company, C&K Construction and Remodeling, LLC and began aggressively seeking work.

With his business entering its tenth year, Martindale is not looking back. “I’ve been very lucky,” he said. I built my business doing handicapped remodeling; something we still do, going and converting kitchens and bathrooms into handicapped accessible space.”
Martindale said he has also learned how important relationships with his customers and sub-contractors are.

Brandon Ayers, owner of B. Ayers Plumbing & Contracting, Inc., a sub-contractor of C&K Construction, cuts a shower valve opening in a customer’s remodeled bathroom.

“My business has progressed and it’s all been because of the people that I’ve had around me. I work with great subcontractors and a great project manager. Without those people, I could never be where I am today.”

Merlene Nelson, whose bathroom was being remodeled said, “He (Martindale) is fabulous. He is a perfectionist. All their sub-contractors are too. I am very happy with the work he is doing.” C&K is a general contractor that offers new construction, kitchen and bath remodeling and repair, and specializes in code compliant upgrades to create handicap accessibility.

The skilled artisans at C&K will make your kitchen, bathroom, stairways, showers, and tubs accessible to anyone with mobility issues.
