Signature Home Improvements  expanded from cabinet refacing to building custom cabinets and completing kitchen and bath remodels. The company also has a granite yard and fabricates granite and quartz in its 6,000-square-foot shop.

President Jason Flippo (third from right) believes in controlling jobs using his own trade-specific employees for plumbing, electrical, tile, painting, and carpentry. In the past, when he outsourced these skills, he says there were scheduling conflicts and service calls, and clients were not as happy. His wife Mimi (far left) works with the office staff to keep crews on schedule.

About 75% of the company’s work is kitchens and baths, but the jobs tend to grow incrementally as clients, reacting to the area’s strong property values, add items in other rooms to the list. “No one is content to leave it the way they originally agreed,” Flippo says.
