Today we’d like to introduce you to John Lancaster.
Jon, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Growing up I was always the kid with a hammer scrounging nail to build something. When I first moved to Massachusetts after college I worked for a couple of contractors and gained professional skills. After many years of working as a Project Manager for Telecom & Internet companies, I found myself laid-off for the first time when the dot.com bubble burst. Determined to control my own destiny, I thought about starting my own business. At the same time friends were calling asking “while you are not working”…could you install hardwood floors in my house or build a closet, etc. From there my business was born.
Has it been a smooth road?
So far it has been a pretty smooth road with steady growth, but the biggest struggle has been trying to keep up with all of the requests. I do not like turning away work, but we have had to turn away some great projects because we do not have the time to get to them all.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Lancaster Home Remodeling – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We do kitchens, baths, basements and small additions. I would say we specialize in basement renovations. I enjoy what I do. but I would say that basements give me an opportunity to be creative with a blank canvas. I am most proud of the reputation we have been able to create as a company. I have been told by customers numerous customers that our communication sets us apart from other companies. My wife Kim handles the phones and I am in front of the customer every day.
I do not discount the role of luck, right place at the right time, etc. I was lucky to get laid off when I did, but I still tell my kids there is no substitute for working your butt-off.
