Caldwell Companies was hired as a retail contractor to restore the facade of this general store built circa 1900. Throughout history this building has been used as a "store" and social gathering place for locals and travelers on the Ohio & Erie Canal. This historic property in the heart of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park is now owned and operated by the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It serves as a great meeting place and "watering hole" for the visitors to the park. 

It was an honor and a challenge to renovate the facade back to it's original look with a saloon type gable wall and covered wooden deck. We were provided only two pictures that were nearly 100 years old, however this is where Caldwell Companies relies on it's experience and excels, separating itself from other contractors. Allow us to earn your trust and confidence when searching for a retail contractor. We will always provide the best value with honest and accurate pricing.


Ballpark construction costs are usually figured on a square foot basis. A retail contractor will have a certain range of prices according to the market they are in. However all square feet are not created equally and the scope of work varies due to many factors.

Some of the obvious ones are the size of the project, the quality and time frame. These are the easy ones, what is not easy is the unexpected factors that come up on every job. Here at Caldwell Companies our extensive experience of over 25 years allows us to manage all factors like conducting an orchestra.

   Retail Contractor Pricing

  • Commercial, New Construction: $100 to $200 per square foot.
  • Commercial, Interior Renovation:  $50 to $150 per square foot.

  • Commercial Repair: $97.50/hr. for a highly skilled team of two.
