Debbie said

Happy Birthday to Bob and all those who makes his business a success!! Bob, I remember the first time I met you was at an AGC meeting in 1989. I had brought Dad with me and you were so kind to him to tell him what a great company and success he was with Concrete Ready Mixed and Castle SandsCo.! Ever since that meeting he always remembered your name and asked if we were taking care of you.............believe me that was an accomplishment because he was always having trouble remembering even his kids names back then. I had to assure him you were being taken care of. So, since Dad is no longer here, and I am sure he would concur me, let me say what a great company you have grown and you should be so proud!! I had the privilege of seeing first hand the work BSI does with the addition to my home in 1993 and it was exceptional!! I still miss that room!! And, then the work BSI did to our office on Grandin Road.....WOW that place looked great once BSI put their magic touch on it....all the way to the attic!! You have been a great customer to work with over the years and a great friend to me and my family. I wish you all the best..........and Happy Birthday.....I hope you have many, many more! Debbie

Hi Bob, Congratulations on 35 years of business - your firm has been the benchmark for quality construction in the Roanoke Valley since I came to town in 1994. It seems like the blink of an eye.... but when I think about what Roanoke looked like in 1975 ??? -- before Center in the Square/ no Market Building Food Court... and Route 220 South was a two lane road to Boones Mill.

Happy 35th year in business! After having major renovations made in two different homes--I understand just why you remain in business and maintain your excellent reputation. Each home, with very different architecture, was carefully designed and constructed perfectly. Gary,the project supervisor was always approachable and in both instances the construction was without major issues. Thanks to Jennifer for making sure everything was done according to plan. I thank you for making my homes wonderful places to live.
