Family building a future
By Lauren Quintanilla
Making the switch from an employee at someone else’s company to the boss of your own is never an easy thing to do, but toss in years of experience, a good business model and family and you have a winning combination.
Adam Taylor, of Carmel, has been in the roofing/gutter/siding business for more than eight years and had come to the decision that he wanted to take his knowledge of the industry and build his own business.
“I love being able to apply what I have learned working in this industry over a number of years and what I have gained in wisdom about the business world from my family to the responsibility of owning my own company. This drives me to go forward with confidence about what we are doing,” he said.
A few years ago, Taylor approached his father, Steve Taylor, about the idea. Steve has been in the pharmaceutical industry for more than 33 years and recently decided to make the jump with his son and open Taylor Home Improvement. The pair opened the business and never looked back.
“I have great confidence in what we are doing,” said Steve. “My son and I had a similar vision and knew as a team we could do this.”
Adam’s grandfather owned and operated his own car dealership and the pair based their business model on what they learned from him.
“My father based his business on integrity, quality product, communication, taking care of his customers and working with a sense of urgency,” said Steve.
They learned that if they ran their business fallowing those guidelines they would get repeat customers and word-of-mouth recommendations.
Bonded and insured to protect the homeowner, Taylor Home Improvement serves Marion County and the eight surrounding counties. The company primarily does gutters, siding and roofing for people looking to fix up their home, but they also take work from insurance claims.
“Our mission is to bring to this market a company that operates with the highest level of integrity, communication, and service to our customers and employees. We are committed to operating with a sense of urgency using high quality products and excellent workmanship. We feel we are truly achieving this goal,” said Adam.
