About Signature Home Improvements
Signature Home Improvements Inc. was established in 1999 by Jason Flippo. Jason had spent the last 5 years working for the largest home improvements company in the U.S. The five years that Jason spent with “Sears Home Improvements” gave him the specialized knowledge that he needed to form what is now the most unique and busiest company of its kind in the Austin area.
SHI was originally created to fill a void in the local home improvements market. What was missing was a business that specialized in Kitchen Cabinet Refacing. An alternative to the complete tear out of kitchen cabinetry in homes. Although refacing had been around for many years it was not well recognized in the Austin market. The first 5 years in business was spent marketing and selling refacing as well as kitchen counter-tops in the Austin and San Antonio markets. SHI did approximately 30-40 Home Improvement Trade Shows where it generated 90% of its sales leads and built its customer base. Over the past 5 years SHI has grown its business from a 3 to 4 person operation to well over 20 people and is still growing.
In the present day SHI has manufacturing facilities for Custom Cabinetry, Cabinet Finishing and Granite Countertops. Our facility totals approximately 6,000 sq. ft. SHI has become the most unique remodeling company of its kind.
SHI: Employees versus Subcontractors – One thing that sets SHI apart from its counter parts is the fact they employ 100% of their full time workforce, which means no full time subcontractors. The majority of SHI’s local competitors primarily use subcontractors. The problem with this is that they are rarely pre-screened and are rarely insured. The subcontractors rarely do background checks on their people. This means that companies that use subs really do not know who is working in their customers homes. Now that SHI has eliminated all of the subcontractors from its full time roster, customer service, quality of work and quality of materials is unparalleled.
Signature Home Improvements Inc. is dedicated to customer satisfaction by supplying the best services and customer service available. By providing a “turn-key” service we hope to alleviate all of the stress of homeowners that are only getting a fraction of the services they need to complete the job.
