This month, we are happy to introduce our Spotlight Contractor, Riverside Interiors! Riverside supplies several of our interior selections such as tile, countertops, hardwood flooring and carpet. JayMarc sat down with Chad, Co-owner of Riverside, to learn more about his role and the industry.
How long have you been working for Riverside Interiors?
I was hired by Riverside in 2002 as an installation subcontractor. I was very fortunate to land at such a great company. The owner, Mike, took me under his wing and taught me the importance of being a quality journeyman and taking pride in my work. Over the years we built a great relationship based on accountability and trust. In 2007 I became co-owner of Riverside and continue to work with Mike making sure we apply those same values to all our work.
Explain a little more about what you do.
During the recession we were all forced to wear multiple hats. I found myself doing a little of everything; polishing stone in our fabrication shop, conducting job site inspections, estimating, invoicing, etc. Now that things have picked up again I am trying to concentrate my focus on maintaining the quality of our work and managing all of the aspects of bidding and fulfilling all of our installation work with JayMarc.
What is your favorite thing about your industry?
I love to educate people on the materials they are choosing based off of my experience. Over the years I have seen which products succeed and which ones fail. I like to pass this on to the home buyers so they can make an educated commitment to the surfaces they are selecting. I find that people really appreciate having this information and that is helps them feel confident in their decision making.
What is your favorite thing about working with JayMarc Homes?
Working with JayMarc is great as we share common values. We appreciate their family style atmosphere and that they take the time to listen to their contractors and don’t just dismiss their concerns.
If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get?
I would definitely choose suckers. Not for myself, but to give to my two and four year old. When I give them a sucker it gives me a few moments of complete quiet so I can actually hear myself think!
What is your favorite thing to do in the Summer?
I love the outdoors. My absolute favorite thing to do in the Summer though is grab an inner tube and float down the Green River on a nice 90 degree day.
Thank you Chad and Riverside for everything you do! We appreciate the hard work and detail you put into our homes. You truly provide the care for helping our homeowners love where they live!
