Be committed to our Craft, pay close attention to all details
and honor the work that we produce.
I began working as a laborer for a local home builder at the age of 13 in the summer and on weekends so I could buy a car and pay my insurance. Instantly, I realized what a pleasure it was to be able to help people repair their homes, build them new spaces and make their dreams come true. Each day, I found it very satisfying to be able to see the changes to the home, and in the homeowner, that I was a part of producing. Throughout these years I poured concrete slabs & basement walls, worked with a brick mason, framed and trussed homes/pole buildings, installed all types of siding and windows/doors and roofed more homes than I can remember.
Upon graduation from High School, I sold Insurance for about a year, then entered the United States Marine Corps. Four years later, I started working in management for the 84 Lumber Company where I was promoted to sales after only a few months on the job. The experience gained as a young man swinging a hammer truly fueled my knowledge and rise as a young salesperson in the Building Community. From 84 Lumber to a corporate sales position in building materials with Builders First Source, I spent many years selling and estimating jobs both small & large for residential and commercial contracting outfits all over Ohio.
During my years as a building materials salesperson, I gained a wealth of knowledge about building products, installation and the industry. Throughout this time, I still practiced as a contractor on the side building decks, roofing homes and installing siding.
After the bust in 2008, Builder's First Source completely pulled out of the Tri-State Market. This move ushered me back into the Contracting arena where I have been blessed with meeting and servicing some of the most amazing people ever.
Finally, I truly feel that we bring a more personal approach to the table. Our work and our craftsmen are most definitely top echelon, but our ability to connect with our clients and friends has set us apart from the rest. We like to listen and include our clients in the upgrades to their most priced investment by keeping them informed and allowing them to be a part of the process during the planning stages. In this time of commodity contractors at every corner, we strive to make your experiences unlike that of any you have ever experienced in the building market.
