How Mercury Builders started

Jeff Gehring started Mercury Builders in 1992 to refurbish homes. He partnered with Ed Bueno in 2005 and they expanded into general contracting on residential and commercial projects in eastern Nebraska. Shortly thereafter, they added an exterior home products division and rapidly grew despite the challenges of the recession of 2008.

Jeff’s 40 years of construction experience in all trades fuels a true passion in home restoration and design/build-out of new construction projects. Jeff works with Project Manager Jason Thomas to ensure top quality workmanship and strict adherence to project management to drive Mercury Builders’ success.

What sets Mercury Builders apart

Mercury Builders stands out as a custom home builder who works with any plan. We have a variety of plans to suit your needs that can be customized to fit your lifestyle. We can also start from scratch and create a design to suit your personal vision. Once your design is finalized, we strive to complete the project in seven to nine months from the permit being issued. In addition, we partner with several of the top local financial institutions to provide a variety of financing options for our clients.

At Mercury, we are proud to offer quality details and finishes in our homes. We provide each custom client with ten hours of personal care and customization with our Professional Designer. Quality materials like Marvin Windows from Window Innovations, Quartz countertops throughout the home, ceramic tile in the primary and main bathrooms, and the kitchen backsplash from McKean’s Floor to Ceiling are just a few of the features that set us apart!

Our dedicated team promises to consistently communicate with you throughout the building process, striving for quality, detail, and superior experience. We also want to ensure your satisfaction continues long after move-in day. That’s why, in addition to our 1-year builder’s warranty, Mercury also provides you with an amazing three-year Service One warranty on your home! This is just another way we set ourselves apart.

What has Mercury Builders achieved

We are proud to have earned numerous awards for our superior professionalism and craftsmanship. We won the 2018, 2019, and 2023 Omaha Magazine’s Best of Omaha First Place Award for Custom Home Builder, and were recently featured on the Midlands Business Journal’s front page. This stellar reputation helped us foster relationships with local banking and material partners to provide clients with quality materials at lower prices. Our reputation means increased benefits for you, the one who matters most.

Our team enjoys giving back to the community. Jeff, Ed, and his father have cooked at the Sienna Francis Homeless Shelter. He serves on the Millard Business Association Fundraise Board to raise money for Project Wee Care, which provides food, clothing, and Christmas gifts for area families in need. Mercury Builders sponsors the Foodbank of the Heartland, and Wounded Warrior Project and co-sponsors Rib Stock.
