Glenn C. Sterkel

I'm not your ordinary construction contractor.  After leaving a corporate engineering career in systems development, I decided to start a business where I could do what I love -- no longer sitting behind a desk, but instead applying all my wealth of experience to beautifying and adding value to people’s homes and businesses! Solving problems and building relationships in my surrounding neighborhoods.

Help me celebrate my 6th year in business by using my expertise to totally transform your stairs and balconies!  Allow me to give your home or business a whole new look!
