About Us

Mural & Son, Inc. is a general contracting firm specializing in structural foundation repair and waterproofing. Founded in 1923 by Frank Mural in Cleveland, Ohio, we always have been and continue to be family owned and operated. Mr. Mural (below center-left) was a pioneer in the art of building moving, perfecting the methods involved in relocating some of the largest structures of the time. From the company's inception through his retirement in the 1970's, Mr. Mural was responsible for moving hundreds of structures throughout the country. From Pulaski County jail in Little Rock, AK. (below left) where the inmates remained confined to their cells for the move, to the old Rainbow Babies & Children Hospital, (below right) the largest building moved in Ohio at the time (estimated 15,000 tons). Mural & Son quickly became a respected name in the business.

As the federal highway project was nearing completion, the company shifted it's focus to foundation repair. By the end of the 1950's, Mr. Mural's son, William Mural (above center-right), entered the business as the new leader of the successful company. During the younger Mural's stewardship of nearly fifty years, the company continued to grow and prosper, providing a personal touch so rare in the contracting business. The company continued to move houses and buildings through the 1970's. By the end of the decade the company had transitioned into a premier structural contractor.
By this time, the third generation represented by Robert W. Mural joined the company. Robert is currently the President of Mural & Son, Inc. with degrees in Business and Civil Engineering from The Ohio State University. Robert and the rest of the extended Mural family continue to strive for excellence in serving the Cleveland community, with the principles instilled by his grandfather and father in offering quality service and dedication to all customers.
