JEFF spent over 17 years, prior to Viking, developing his superior craftsmanship and management skills. His training began at a very young age within a family of experienced tradesmen in the HVAC industry where perfection was critical… liability and the possibility of disaster high. Heating systems on boilers with critical valves and controls demanded accuracy and precision.
Jeff then ventured into the construction and roofing trades where he continued his education, building his craftsmanship and experience in the study and application of the art of a wide spectrum of roof types with a keen interest in historical renovation sparked by a desire to preserve classic architecture using old-fashioned material and methods. He added coppersmithing to his skills creating decorative copings, moldings and other custom architectural elements to set off quality roofs.
A natural talent for managing and training crews, Jeff has mentored and built an impressive team at Viking. A ‘hands-on’ owner, Jeff oversees all on-site operations, transforming client requirements by translating design, techniques, and quality products into solutions that stand the test of time. Every project is driven by safety first, strong work ethics, craftsmanship, professionalism, and meticulous attention to detail providing a superior solution to protect the client’s investment.
For a learning craftsman, Jeff inspires a commitment for quality and integrity, an emphasis on details and aesthetic design utilizing premium products, and a constant commitment to improve not only his knowledge base but that of his crews. Jeff’s high standards puts safety first where he believes that the responsibility of building the roof over one’s head mandates doing it right the first time. Every job, small or large, gets his stamp of approval. Jeff is sought after, not only for new projects and repair, but for his counsel on large and difficult projects.
