WHY US

"WE WERE SICK AND TIRED OF SEEING HOME OWNERS RIPPED OFF BY OUR INDUSTRY!"

 

With almost  40 years of combined extensive experience, Paul Bartels and Mike Shively started First Choice Contractor in 2015 for one reason ...

They were tired of seeing home owners get ripped off by their industry! "Companies we worked for were not honest and did not give people what was promised."

To Paul and Mike, integrity and trust are everything!  They do not claim to be the cheapest, because they don't cut corners or use cheap products and materials.  They are more concerned with doing the job right, as promised, on time, without hidden expenses and with high quality products.

 

  • Paul Bartels is a family man.  He and his wife Kayla have been married for over fourteen years and have two beautiful children. Paul has extensive background (over 20 years) in the home improvement industry, both from a sales and labor aspect.  He has done everything from selling and installing windows, doors, roofs and more, to building beautiful sunrooms onto homes.

 

  • Mike Shively is a single dad of two great kids, which he considers his greatest joy and  accomplishment.  Mike has been a Battalion Chief for a volunteer fire department, so it is easy to see that caring about others is very important to him.  With an extensive background in construction and working closely with the core of engineers on homes in flood plains, Mike brings that hard working, caring and honest quality to the business.

 

The philosophy of the business is simple...

ON TIME...ON QUOTE...NO SURPRISES...GUARANTEED!

We want happy and satisfied customers, who will love referring their family and friends to us!
