How long have you been working with Petros Homes?
I have been working with Petros Homes for 28 years, the first eight as a sales manager for Falls Lumber and the last twenty as owner of my company Summit Millwork located in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.
What have you enjoyed the most about working with Petros Homes?
The level of talent at the company is phenomenal. Over the years, I have enjoyed working with several people who have inspired me with their creativity and passion for the homebuilding process. The company has always treated their employees and their trades and suppliers with a high level of respect that in turn translates in to recruiting and retaining a high level of talent and a superior customer experience.
How do you feel your services make an impact on the company business?
By employing a good sense of product knowledge and awareness along with knowing how to apply the right products in the right places within new homes that make a difference to the overall outcome of the build. Petros Homes also shares our commitment to use high quality goods that withstand the test of time.
What has contributed to your longevity with Petros Homes?
Continued rapport with all of the company employees from the site mangers to design and estimating personnel all the way to the top decision makers. I was attracted from the beginning to the company “core values” and share in the belief to do “right” by the customer on each and every new home build. There is a solid level of care that begins at the top and filters down through each member of the team designed to follow good practices and systems that set Petros Homes apart from other home builders and consistently maintain and top status in the local market.
What trends do you see for the 2022-2023 season in trim and millwork?
Unique patterns, color pops, and different finishing touches are extremely popular millwork design trends these days. Buyers are always keen to seeking out new trends in finishes and applications that will make their home unique. The popularity of trim and wood applications along with finish details offered by highly respected door and cabinet hardware companies such as EMTEK ensure that our offerings will remain fresh and relevant while delivering the highest quality goods.
