Who We Are

Founded in 1979, E. A. Knight Construction Inc. has grown over the years to become one of the largest residential building and remodeling companies in Southern Illinois with a service area that spans the entire region. Our crews bring decades of experience to every project. Despite our size we still maintain focus on every job, whether large or small. The magnitude of the project is of less importance than performance, quality, and overall customer satisfaction. In addition to the custom homes we build, we complete hundreds of remodeling and repair jobs each year.

Our Staff

Our carpenters and crew are supported by a full time office staff, so there is always someone to answer your call. Edd Knight has been an active member of the National Association of Home Builders for many years, and was President of the Home Builders Association of Illinois in 2005. While serving as Legislative Chair he was able to facilitate the adoption of a building code for the seventy-six counties in Illinois that previously had no building code in place.

E. A. Knight Construction was one of the first companies to sign on to the Illinois Quality Assurance Program. This system spells out, in laymen’s terms, workmanship standards that must be met on every project.


In 2008, E. A. Knight Construction was recognized by Hanley Wood Remodeling Magazine as one of the fifty best remodeling companies in America and Glen Knight was highlighted as “one to watch” for innovative ideas in the remodeling industry. We were selected as HBASI Remodeler of the Year 2005 and HBAI Builder of the Year 2003. We are also utilized by local code enforcement, building officials and news outlets as a resource for building practices and technical advice.

E.A. Knight Construction has been named multiple times over the past several years to Remodeling Magazines top companies in the country.
