Joseph’s Remodeling Solution’s Celebrates 32 Years; Open House April 24
Thursday, April 18, 2019
To commemorate the 32 years of success of the company, Joseph’s Remodeling Solutions will host an Open House from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday, April 24, at their new office building. The building located at 1244 West Main St., in Monteagle.
Joseph Sumpter started working at a very young age, when he was 14-years-old, doing painting and repairs. “I loved working with my hands,” he said. “Then painting and repairs led to remodeling work.”
“My first job was painting an exterior of a house in Miami, Fla., for an Alan Garr” he said. “In addition to getting paid actual money, I received a canoe, and Mr. Garr’s roommate made brochures for me. I went around in my go-cart to the neighborhoods, distributing the brochures. And, I got more jobs.”
Joseph has always worked for himself and made a living from it. He began as a one-man show, working while in school. In 1992 he moved to the Mountain, as a student at Sewanee. He took some time off to hike the Appalachain Trail. Then he started in earnest taking the bigger jobs. He now has a crew of 14 people.
He said his clients can expect a positive experience during their remodel, from good communication, getting exactly what they want at a good price and in a timely manner.
Joseph’s Remodeling Solutions is a custom, full-service remodeling company, specializing in using only the best materials that have a proven track record. Attention to every detail is personally overseen by Joseph and his skilled craftsmen. From replacing a deck to completely restoring a historic home, Joseph’s Remodeling Solutions is well equipped to meet those needs.
Joseph said his company does a lot of old home restorations. They also do custom drainage and rainwater collection systems. An example of a collection system can be seen at Wade Hall for the Sciences on the campus of St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School.
“We are excited to have an office on the Mountain. We needed a place for our growing staff, and a place where our customers could easily come to us,” Joseph said.
Hard work and attention to detail has paid off.
“We attribute our growth to our clients who look to us to provide solutions to their home remodeling needs. We are fortunate to have worked for so many great folks who ask us to help them again and again,” said Joseph.
Joseph and his wife Alyssa are the owners and operators of the buiness. They and their two daughters live in Cowan, and are active community members. Joseph is on the advisory board for St. Mary’s Convent. He also helps with a couple of nonprofits including Housing Sewanee, Inc., and Animal Harbor. In his spare time, he likes to hike and go canoeing.
