If you call our office, you’re most likely to talk to Tommy! Raised in Ireland as the oldest son of a carpenter, Tommy came to the U.S. to attend college and graduated with a degree in Philosophy in 2013, writing his dissertation on that most common of human goals: happiness.
That topic now motivates him every day at the office, where he thrives on getting to know each client’s home repair needs and making sure they are happy throughout the project. Our clients love working with him, just as much as he loves working with them! He lives with his wife and son in the Manassas area.

When it comes to his work, he most enjoys the sense of accomplishment that comes with a job well done. His philosophy is to make the most of the time spent with family. In his down time, he enjoys playing tennis.
“After getting an understanding of all the projects that needed to be completed, the technician [Kevin] began working in an efficient fashion by starting one project and working it to a necessary stopping point, then moving to other projects while the first project was curing, drying etc… This kept him busy at all times, rather than working each project in sequence. Well done.”
