His company is focused on processes and training to deliver home renovations and earning customers trust each day. The culture in the company is on continuous improvement and allowing the “artists” in the company to show off their talents as they are set up for success.
Chris appears regularly as a guest on WSB95.5’s Home FixIt Show with Dave Baker, All Four Season Home Show, and TrustDaleTV providing advice on home projects for consumers and answering their questions.
