Jeff primarily focuses on inside sales, drawing upon his past experience in construction work. A Chelsea native, he now lives in nearby Waterloo. He holds a conservation degree from Northern Michigan University.
“I take pride in my knowledge of building materials – and especially my availability and reliability when customers have needs. We’re all about providing great service.

“I love meeting people and helping them find solutions for their homes. Sometimes customers are frustrated by a problem or don’t quite know what they need. Making them happy can be a challenge, but it’s a challenge I welcome. When we can delight customers like this, they spread the word that we’re good people for getting things done.”
