Mike, as the son of a builder, has been in the construction industry since he was old enough to hold a hammer. After graduating from high school, Mike started his own construction business and spent a number of years building houses alongside several other experienced builders. All of this experience formed a firm understanding of the entire construction process. When Mike realized homes sprayed with spray foam insulation had utility bills half that of homes insulated with other types of conventional insulation, he decided to specialize in spray foam insulation. Mike is our head estimator; he looks at projects, prepares bids and meets with our customers.
Alicia has a firm understanding of the chemical side of spray foam insulation from her extensive background in chemistry and biology. After marrying into the family, she and Mike desired a business where they could work together. While Mike understands the technical aspects of spray foam insulation, Alicia understands the chemical aspects, and they create a very comprehensive package. Alicia is our IT person and handles our commercial division; she prepares all commercial projects for Mike to bid, works with project managers and assists Joyce.
Jerry has been a builder since 1976 when he built and sold his first home at the age of 19 after completing two years of vocational school. He has always been interested in making his homes energy efficient, so joining his son in the spray foam insulation business was right up his alley. In the ‘80’s when the price of lumber sky-rocketed, Jerry researched the most energy efficient types of home building which used the least wood. As a result he has built over a dozen straw bale homes in this area, being featured on some of the local news channels in the late nineties. Jerry is our head foreman and makes sure every project is completed right the first time, on time, every time.
Jerry’s wife, Joyce, helped him in the building process as well as taking care of the secretarial duties that went along with owning a construction business. She is no stranger to running a business of her own as she owned and operated a small restaurant in downtown Plattsburg in the early nineties. She brought her office and organizational skills to the spray foam insulation company. Joyce is our office manager; she handles our residential division, sends out bids and if you call, she is the one you will most often speak with.
