There’s doing something and there’s doing it well. A-1 Touch owner Gary Blythe is a craftsman by trade as well as by inclination. He approaches every job with the eye of an artisan.
It’s an important distinction and no matter which crew is engaged on a project, Gary is involved – assessing, estimating, and personally overseeing the work.
Carpentry craftsmanship with a special focus on copper work
He learned how to make sure the roof functions correctly first, then addressing the aesthetics. Having worked a lot with copper, he also understands the material very well and how it should be applied.
For example, you can take cut and bend a piece of counter flashing to fit a mortar joint and it looks like a piece of metal on a brick. However, by taking one side and giving it a quarter-inch bend, it hugs the brick to keep the water out. It’s still up against the brick, but the bend changes the look in an eye-pleasing way.
A true craftsman understands how to achieve a different look while keeping the same functionality.
I make sure we put a personal touch into each project, because it’s personal to me.
