About

Roofing has been a part of my life ever since I was a teenager. I began working for my father’s small roofing business, Diamond Construction, at the age of 13. Back then, I was responsible for carrying shingles and cleaning up project sites.

At 30 years old, after seven years of owning Stern Construction, I became the residential manager at a large commercial roofing company. While there, I helped grow their shingle division, which started as a single three-man team and grew to over 15 crews in just a few years.

In 1990, I became a partner at BCI, where I was one of only two employees. By the time I became primary owner in 2013, we had grown to over 50 employees, 35 work trucks, and served over 40,000 satisfied customers.

For over 38 years, we have built a foundation of trust among our customers. What I love most about my company is that we hold ourselves to a higher standard: we expect the best from ourselves and we never compromise on quality craftsmanship. Our objective is to show professionalism at all levels and make sure our customer is happy at the end of the day.

When I’m not at BCI, I enjoy working on classic cars and spending with my large family, especially all my grandchildren.

About

I have been in the industry for about 28 years; 21 of those have been with BCI. I got my start by working on roofs for my grandfather at a very young age. Here at BCI, I like the family-type atmosphere and how everyone helps get the job done. Every day is different and I like the challenge.

I’m an avid outdoorsman who loves hunting, fishing, and working at the cabin. I enjoy hanging out with my wife of 20 years and my daughter, who is pursuing career in the medical field.

Production Manager

About

I have 32 years of residential exterior experience. I worked as a siding installer for seven years before becoming a supervisor. From running crews, giving estimates, ordering materials, and scheduling, I have done it all! I’ve been running the windows, doors, gutters and carpentry work for BCI for the last 13 years. The industry is ever-changing and the thing that I admire most about BCI is the investment they put in their staff. They see to it that we are all properly trained in our work so we in turn can ensure quality craftsmanship for our customers. Our installation crews and I have been trained and certified in the installation of vinyl, fiber cement, L.P. SmartSide siding and windows/doors.
In my spare time, I especially enjoy outdoor activities and traveling.

Production Manager

About

I have been in the exterior trades for over 30 years, doing carpentry work and working with numerous materials like shingles, tile roofing, cedar siding, fiber cement, and LP SmartSide siding. I truly found my industry home four years ago when I met the team at BCI. I saw that my coworkers and I share the same passion for exterior home improvements. Over the years, I’ve been the go-to guy for siding historical homes with ornate architecture. I love being a production manager and building estimator at BCI Exteriors. I continue to learn things that help me hone my skills in the trade that I adore.

I enjoy kayaking and jumping on stage with local bands to help out with guitar, bass, drums, and even some singing from time to time. I have three beautiful daughters and a son who is also in the trades, just like his dad.

General Manager

About

I was in 6th grade when I put on my first tool belt. Ever since then, I have had a passion for the trades. Back in 2004, I started my own company, Diversified Construction.  After three years of running my own company, I decided to do work for various other remodeling and construction companies in the area. In 2012, I was introduced to BCI’s owner, Larry Stern, and began working as a project specialist shortly thereafter. After two years of assessing projects and writing quotes, I was promoted to General Manager.

Through my journey, I try to apply the craftsmanship and expertise that I’ve learned to help our customers. I treat every project as if it were my own home.  As General Manager, my favorite part of the job is conquering the challenges. It is my responsibility to answer questions, come up with creative and effective solutions for unique projects, and push my team to grow and refine our customer service experience.  I enjoy showing up, working hard, and feeling a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day knowing we’ve made our customers happy.

When I’m not working, I am spending time with my beautiful wife and three kids. We can be found racing to our kids’ sporting practices, games, and dance recitals, as well as attending church functions.

About

My career in the home improvement trades has followed a path from hands-on installation to business owner.  BCI was one of my first accounts while I built up a market-share in my home town of Racine.  When I made the choice to leave my business, it was clear that BCI was going to be an encouraging and supportive place for me to apply and develop all the skills I learned as an owner.  At BCI, I always look forward to helping our clients build the durability, comfort, and appeal of their home. When I’m not out on the job, you can find me with my wonderful family and close friends. I enjoy traveling, reading, and I especially love to sing!

About

I roofed during my high school & college years to help pay my own way. After graduating college, I worked for seven years as a Registered Nurse in the oncology field at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin. I worked specifically with patients diagnosed with various types of leukemia and those who were going though stem cell transplant. Although nursing was very rewarding, I wanted to refocus my career in the remodeling industry to help people in a different way. Years ago, I chose BCI Exteriors to remodel my own home. As a customer, I was very impressed with not only the results, but also the overall professionalism and courtesy of the BCI staff.  I knew right away that this was the company I wanted to work for.

In my downtime, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our four children and being involved with our local church. Other things I like to do for fun include disc golf, playing bags, fishing, and target shooting.

About

From the time I graduated high school I have been in the construction industry. My experiences have ranged from laborer to foreman, and I made the transition from working in the field to home remodeling sales 10 years ago. I am passionate about helping homeowners realize their vision for their homes. I use my industry expertise to help my customers choose the best products for their needs so they can enjoy the fresh design and enhanced performance of whatever aspect of their home they remodel for years to come.

In my free time I can usually be found outside, spending time kayaking or hiking with my wife Chelsea and two chocolate labs, Charlie and Beau, or piloting my drone.

About

My father owned his own roofing business, so from the age of 12, I have been working in the home improvements and roofing industry. Being home-schooled, I spent my days on the roof working and my nights “going to school”. I have worked for BCI since 2007. It is a pleasure to work for a company that truly values quality craftsmanship, customer satisfaction and its employees. My role at BCI is twofold: I’m here to address any concerns our customers have, and to ensure that they’re satisfied with the work at the end of each project.

I really enjoy coming home to my beautiful wife and two girls. As a family, we enjoy table tennis, golfing, camping and swimming. I feel blessed to have both a happy work and home life.

About

They call me “Big Joe”! I have over 42 years of experience in the roofing industry and 19 years of that has been working with BCI Exteriors. I like the challenge of keeping the BCI crews supplied and having things run smoothly for every job. Maintaining the large warehouse is a big part of my job, doing everything from cleaning to ordering to stocking building materials for all of BCI’s services.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family at our cottage.  My grandchildren keep me busy, especially the youngest.  My hobbies include doing projects with my wife, hunting, fishing, following sports, and playing a little poker.
