MEET THE

OWNERS

I’ve been in the construction and remodeling business since 1993, when I started working with my Dad. My work ethic comes from him, a Marine and Viet Nam combat vet who served multiple tours. My father taught me the importance of a hard work and respect, something I’ve carried with me my whole life. My grandfather owned a construction company in Maryland and I can remember hammering nails in a deck with him when I was 5 or 6 years old. I’ve been in and around the business for most of my life, through High School and College. Now, I’m excited to have a company in my own local area.

 

I’ve always wanted to have a business in the area where I live, providing top notch workmanship and excellent customer satisfaction.  I live local in Ocean View, Delaware with my wife and two kids…..and Marley, our Boxer.   When I’m not working, you can find me coaching Little League Baseball at the Pyle Center or Pop Warner Football in Selbyville.  Our family enjoys camping and spending time with friends on the beach.

 

When our neighbors call Ocean View Roofing & Renovations, I want them to have a great experience from the beginning of the job to the end. I will be personally involved in every project, making sure every customer is completely satisfied. We didn’t start this company to be the biggest in the area, just the best. Our concentration is on residential homes, where we can provide years of experience, great craftsmanship, and friendly service.

As an owner I look forward to bringing my experience in the roofing trade to Ocean View.  My career in construction began while working as a laborer for a commercial concrete contractor during high school summers.  This work at the time seemed mundane and grueling, but hind sight proved to be great experience.  After graduating from Shepherd University in 2001 I found opportunity in the new home building boom as a sub contractor building homes.  In 2003 I transitioned to the home Improvement world working with a well established roofing company servicing the Baltimore / DC area.  I did this for the next 13 years while building my career and raising a family with my lovely wife Dana.  Early 2016 I made a change to commercial construction as an account rep for a building automation contractor.  I learned how to wear a tie, got to meet some really smart, great people, and gained invaluable experiences that were critical to my professional development.  

 

In Feb. 2018 My Wife and I, and our 3 boys moved from Howard County MD to the Ocean View area to be closer to family, and to get back to my roots in home improvement.  This is why Jim and I created OV Roofing & Renovations.  We are looking forward to and are  excited to provide high quality service and workmanship to our community.  That is what this company is built on.
