Our story starts with a Lake County, FL sheriff’s deputy with passion and a dream to work in construction by starting his own company. At 39 years old and married with four children, Emmett Sapp Sr. started from scratch buying and renovating homes in Lake County. For details, see our History page.

Safety Policy

We enforce a safety program that requires both our employees and sub-contractors to comply with all State, County and OSHA (Federal) Laws, compliance is a condition of employment.


The project schedule was well organized and exceeded our expectations. We had a 6-month build schedule with a July 2020 completion date and it was completed ahead of schedule. We were concerned due to the pandemic, naturally, that our construction schedule would be thrown off. However, Sapp Construction completed on time and even under budget!

It is no exaggeration to say that Emmett Sapp Builders was the major contributor in accomplishing this Herculean task.  The first time I met you, I was impressed with your honesty and straight-forwardness.  You and your firm have continued to impress us with your building expertise and your ability to work under pressure and maintain a high level of professionalism.

We would not have changed anything as the pricing was great and the job was managed very well.  I am a  ‘hands-on’ person and was on the job consistently.  There were changes requested for many reasons and Emmett Sapp Builders, Inc. handled them well and professionally.  They kept the costs for the change orders realistic and any credits were handled well.

Emmett and his project manager always told us that they only wanted us to be pleased and whatever it took is what they wanted to do.  I am so pleased with our new kitchen and sun room!  I have received so many compliments on the way it looks outside as well as inside.  Many people stop to tell me that they never would know that it is a recent addition..
