True Value and Builders serving Minnesota's North Shore since 1928

Spring is getting started early.  Check out job opportunities and True Value Spring Sale flyers!

Welcome to Isak Hansen’s True Value and Builders.  In here, you will have the opportunity to see all of the products and services available to help you make your North Shore experience everything you dreamed.  For over 80 years, we’ve been building cabins, remodeling, constructing roads and sewers, and supplying materials to homeowners and contractors for their projects.

One of the great things about what we offer is that you can do as much as you want.  If you want to build a deck, we’ve got the plans and materials to get you started.  If you run out of time, or simply decide to go fishing, we can build it for you.

Our goal is to make it easy for you to own your property on the shore.  Whether you’re doing it yourself, or having us work on your home, our goal is to earn handshake trust.  It’s a bit of throwback to the old days, but we’ve come to believe that’s what you’re looking for by making Cook County your home.

Ultimately, we strive to bring you the benefit of many years of experience and service, and knowledge of local conditions to make your home comfortable for generations to come.  As you browse through the site, please feel free to pick up the phone and call us anytime at 218-663-7201.  We still answer the phone in person.
