23-year-old tradesperson with a lot of passion and heart for the industry and he loves Frank Sinatra, hold on, this is going to be one great show. His Dad taught him only one way to be a tradesperson, the right way, he taught him how to build better, and be better. Losing his Dad at a young age was very hard for the family, really sorry for your loss Shane.
Shane has a solid base for his business and what was key, was his crew, his trio of tapers, himself, Saudi and Adam, Shane’s plan is to find more tapers, find reliable subs, and continue to grow the business on volume and keep moving forward. Incredibly refreshing to hear Shane share that he always prefills with Durabond 90, it’s a must for his quality, prefill, tape and then he covers. Game Changer alert – Shane has 2 Festool Planex Drywall sanders and from pole sanding to this amazing tool, he can’t live without it.
We discuss health and safety and how it’s always about keeping the dust down and off the trades, Shane wears a full face shield when he sands and once again, as mentioned in a previous show with Teddy, breathing in drywall dust, that dust will mix with the moisture in your lungs and create problems, please, please, protect yourself, all tradespeople, live a long and healthy construction life.
3 years working this new business of his, starting this brand but remember Shane had that union work and his Dad taught him as a teenager and that brought other issues, most old school trades would dismiss Shane cause of his age, shouldn’t be the case everyone, if it’s your first or last day on site, you will always have something to share, teach, leave behind. Shane is the kind of trade, when he’s completed his scope, he will walk around with the homeowner, or the GC with a check out light and inspect all areas, all corners, all details, that’s the kind of tradesperson he is and that’s the kind of business and brand he is building.
Shane is looking for volume of work, he’s looking for those sub division job sites, he and his crews can handle the work, give the man a chance, he will not let you down, he will actually elevate your quality to new heights.
