As the supervisor of the Carpentry, Painting, and Roofing divisions of Facilities Operations, I would like to offer a brief description of our responsibilities. In essence, we perform all of the carpentry, painting, and roofing duties associated with the repair and maintenance of University facilities and equipment. We repair and hang doors, apply drywall, repair furniture, and perform a myriad of carpentry related maintenance task.
In addition to our regular services, we offer excellent furniture restoration services. Let us restore that old desk, table, or lamp. Recycle a potential antique rather than fill the landfill with a useful object!
