I have lived in the Iberia, Missouri area until the last few years when I moved to Lake Ozark, Missouri. My business co-owner, Derek, and I have known each other for over 17 years and have been in business together for a little over six years. Growing up, my father was the greatest influence and taught me most of what I know in the construction industry. I graduated from Missouri State University with a Business Entrepreneurship degree knowing exactly what I wanted to do. In December 2012, I became a HAAG certified specialist. I also have received my Xactimate certification. Over the years I have seen countless homeowners that have been treated unfairly or lied to by their contractor. By seeing this I knew that a business could easily be built by something as simple as doing what you said you were going to do. This simple philosophy of sticking to your word has carried me, as well as our business, quite a long way. That being said, I am doing exactly what I have always wanted to do, meeting customers and learning about their lives as we can take care of any damage that they may have.

Heat Trace Cables: A Better Way of Keeping Rain Gutters Clear in The Winter

Heat Trace Cables for Winter Gutter Maintenance

One of the pesky tasks of being a homeowner is keeping rain gutters clean and clear of continual deposits of snow and ice. A tool that can help you out in this annual battle is the heat trace cable. These cables are installed along gutters and can maintain a temperature of up to 150°F, quickly melting ice and snow and moving it along to the ground. They differ from traditional whole-roof heating systems in their narrow area of application, which is a more practical and cost-effective choice for areas with lower annual snowfall totals where a full roof heater would be overkill.
