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 build office spaces, hang doors, apply drywall,
repair furniture, restore old buildings, and perform a myriad of maintenance
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!
We are all professionals who build, paint, and repair on a daily basis. We take
pride in our skills and offer them to our clients in a courteous manner; constantly
striving to insure customer satisfaction.
