Meet Our Team
We would like you to get to know the wonderful group of people who will be working with you when you choose to renovate with DeVrye. Over the years, Rick DeVrye has hand-picked an amazing group of professionals to form his team. Each member is committed to performing with integrity, honesty and quality workmanship. Read their own comments below and you will better understand how they value their work and what is important to them.
Prior to starting DeVrye Renovations in 1990, I had worked for another renovation contractor that would only deliver mediocre work. Seeing the poor results and the frequent confrontations that arose from “good enough” work, I vowed to deliver both a better product and better service for my customers. In order to accomplish this, I have assembled a team of tradesmen that arrive at your home with a toolbox full of competency, skill, commitment, creativity, diligence, and dedication.
When they pack up at the end of a productive day, they take with them a sense of accomplishment and leave behind a happy homeowner and a job well done. I am both proud of and blessed by the great crew of guys that work for our company. All of our crew members have been with us for many years and each of them care a lot about how they can deliver a great experience for our customers. Here’s a little introduction to our team members.”
