A Little History
Harlan Smith started as a union carpenter, completed a four year apprenticeship, and became a journeyman. After working on schools, hospitals, and various commercial projects, he applied for a General Contractors License in 1977. He started in general remodeling, such as room additions, kitchen and bath remodeling, and built several homes. During this period, he got involved with some roofing contractors to install skylights. In 1982, he became a skylight installation specialist and eventually opened a shop in Rancho Cordova. Today Harlan at age 65 is slowing down but still active. His son Patrick is positioned to take over, having worked the business most of his adult life.
We serve an area around Sacramento approximately fifty miles in diameter. However, we have traveled far outside this radius when the project is feasible to us. We have worked in such places as San Francisco, Hollister, Yuba City, Grass Valley, Lake Tahoe, Stockton, Modesto, Fairfield, Woodland, and San Jose. If you think we can assist you, please contact us.
