Bob Gridley: “Mr. Detail”. As a professional project manager and owner of both residential and commercial rental properties - you will find that I tend to view your project from extremely detailed, nuts-and-bolts technical, team and finally, integrated design, texture and color orientations. Knowledge is power – I will teach you as much as you are willing to learn about what you are trying to accomplish with new floor-coverings, granite or quartz counter-tops and top-tier window treatments. This Nebraska ranch country boy is old-school; I eschew “quick-and-easy”; I will measure the dimensions of your project with a laser (accurate to 1/8 inch over 100 feet), seamlessly integrating that data into a tablet-based, specialty flooring application. I am known for thoroughness and detail in all things, especially with regard to product knowledge, client tutelage and understanding, site inspection and quote work-ups. I am committed to generating the very best sub-floor preparation, product selection and installation relative to your current and future projects. Thank you sincerely for your trust, and patronage… “Transforming your World… - one step at a time. We’ve only just begun!!”
