MICHAEL YOUNG BLOOD
Vice President of Operations
I grew up with “old school” values and like to believe there are still honest people in the construction industry. I believe that honesty is the best policy and a man’s worth is only as good as his word.
With 44 years of experience in the glazing industry and two+ years working at a building envelope testing laboratory, I believe, whether it is a custom systems design, innovative rigging apparatuses, or identifying potential constructability and water intrusion issues, nothing is impossible to make happen.
