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.

The Pros and Cons of Copper Roofing

Pros and Cons of Copper Roofing

Anybody who's ever seen a copper weather vane or cupola, knows how beautiful copper is in an outdoor setting. It can be treated to resist weathering, but some people find the greenish patina that weathered copper develops to be just as beautiful -- if not more so -- than when it's shiny and new! (Interestingly, because our air quality is actually better than it was years ago, copper doesn't develop a greenish patina very quickly these days.) Copper is both classic and classy, and there's nothing more beautiful than home topped with a copper roof.
