OUR STORY

Dale Nikula, President of Encore Construction, worked for his father for many years before he founded his own company in 1995 as Dale R. Nikula Co., Inc. Dale had established a reputation as an outstanding carpenter, but clients quickly discovered that he was equally talented at leading people and projects. The company grew steadily as word spread about Dale’s high standards and commitment to his clients. In 2003, Dale renamed his company Encore Construction to reflect the team of carefully selected project managers, designers and crafts people that had joined him to serve customers.

In 2019, Dale announced the promotion of Kathy DeMeyer to co-owner of the construction company. She had been with Encore for 17 years prior to this promotion and continues to work to further elevate Encore’s reputation on the Cape as a go-to trusted construction partner.

Today, Encore provides comprehensive Design|Remodel and custom home services to clients in the Cape Cod area. In the more than 30 years that Dale Nikula has been in business, his company has been honored to receive many awards. Encore’s work has been featured in Home Remodeling, Cape Cod Life, Boston Design Guide, and several remodeling industry magazines.
