Remodeling Des Moines Experts Zak Fleming and Rollie Clarkson Celebrate Memories of Decades in Business
Fleming Construction and Remodeling Contractors teamed up in 2020 to provide the city of Des Moines, Iowa, the best choice in remodeling for residential and commercial properties. Co-owners Zak Fleming and Rollie Clarkson have completed two and three and half decades in business, respectively.

According to announcements released by Remodeling Contractors and Zak Fleming & Rollie Clarkson, this remodeling Des Moines firm has the extensive experience and the wherewithal to handle all kinds of remodeling jobs. 

This experience and ability stem from the decades that co-owners Zak Fleming and Rollie Clarkson put into their respective businesses before coming together in 2020 in an alliance to serve their customers better. 

Zak Fleming of Fleming Construction has completed 20 years in business. The company operates on a set of core values symbolized by the Theory of Remodeltivity. Marc Black, partner, Fleming Construction, has more than 20 years of experience in the remodeling industry. Today, five companies operate under the umbrella of Fleming Construction. These are Imagine Interior Art and Design started in 1999 by Donna Alley, TechBuilders of Iowa LLC, owned by Scott Spetman in 2014, Ridgeline Construction started by Brent Williams in 2012, and DB Building, founded by Duane Berner in 2007.

Zak Fleming couldn’t even imagine what his company would become when he started to lay the groundwork for Fleming Construction in early January of 2001. “I was really just looking for an opportunity to try something different,” explained Fleming, “I liked being an electrician but wanted to keep learning.” To hear him tell the 20-year history of what is now Remodeling Contractors, he hasn’t stopped looking for those opportunities or stopped learning.

Rollie Clarkson had a similar experience when he founded the company that would become Remodeling Contractors in the spring of 1985. “I had worked summers with my family throughout High School and College,” added Clarkson, “I was really more of a Jack of all trades, master of none.” After 35 years in business, Rollie seems to have mastered the art of remodeling, which is no small feat.

Over the 35 years spent in the remodeling business, Rollie Clarkson has earned a wealth of experience. This includes turning a franchised business called Remodeling Contractors and Cleaning Services (RCCS) into one of the best remodeling companies in the United States. That experience gave him the confidence to launch an independent business, and that’s how Remodeling Contractors came into being. 

Clarkson and Fleming’s futures seemed intertwined when they met at a Remodelers Council event a little over 10 years ago. “I was just starting to see some success but was struggling in growing my business,” said Zak, “When I met Rollie, he was so warm and open to sharing his knowledge.” That chance meeting became a mentorship, and in 2020 evolved into a merger between Fleming Construction and Remodeling Contractors. Along with Fleming’s business partner Marc Black, the two now manage one of Central Iowa’s top Design – Build Remodeling firms. “It’s hard to believe this all started with a bucket of tools and a ’95 Dodge Dakota pickup truck,” added Fleming, “I am really proud of our team and what we have become.”
