I started out very young on my own with no job and gifted with one thing, survival skills. At 18 I moved to Valparaiso, IN and secured an apartment. Convincing the owner that even though I did not have a job, I would get work and pay rent and utilities on time. Within a few days I actually had 3 jobs. I woke up early and did minor Janitorial duties for a company by my apartment. I then walked a mile to a diner where I was a waiter until 2 pm.  After that I walked 3 miles to wal-mart where I was a stock person until 11 pm.

While doing all of this walking I happened to go by a flooring company that was looking for a warehouse guy. I interviewed with the owner and started my flooring career at the bottom, the warehouse.  Over the 4 years that I worked for this company I learned invaluable lessons on the day to day grind of flooring and really life.

After 4 years in Valpo it was time for a change and I took a flooring sales position in Merrillville, IN.  I stayed with the company until they went bankrupt learning invaluable selling skills with residential clientele. From there I went to another company out of Illinois and started my commercial career.  The owner of this particular company was amazing and taught me all kinds of things that I still utilize to this day.

While visiting high school buddies in Indianapolis, I met an amazing woman. I knew right then, Indianapolis was going to be my home and the girl I fell in love with would be my wife.  It just seemed like me in a way, big city attitude with small town feel. How could you not love the fact that Indy is on the ground floor and all we are doing is looking to the sky on how to build to it.

In moving to Indy I worked for a few companies in sales and built up a clientele base. I still have clients from when I first started, which goes to show you no matter the name on the door, I was there guy.  Upon working with one client I was told they were unhappy with the owner, so I said what if I went on my own would you follow and they said absolutely!

No matter what life has thrown at me, I always find a way to get things done! I come from a difficult background yet rose above all of the nonsense to where I am today. Two beautiful children, an amazing wife, incredible friends and well a home I never thought possible just a few years ago.

For the past 7 years I have developed several relationships with vendors and commercial/residential clientele. Currently we have crews and employees that are geared to handle any size project from floor to ceiling.

I’ll leave it with this, the best way to predict the future is to create it! JRH Renovations, LLC looks forward to any opportunity you have for us and in so building a relationship!
