Tim Austin LLC was founded in 2006 after years of working as a employee framing large custom homes, apartment buildings and often decks and fences on the weekends.
Tim was informed by his employer that he was planning to throw in the towel. His employer suggested that he, and another employee start their own business. "We were just naive enough to think we could do it," Says Tim. "We had no idea how to run a business." They started Sheer Strength Custom Framing. Focusing on residential framing of custom homes. We split up after a year and I formed Tim Austin LLC Construction. But we both run successful construction companies today so maybe our former employer knew what he was talking about.
Tim Austin LLC spent 2006-2008 framing custom homes. Decks, fences, siding. We stayed mainly in the lane of being a framing contractor who did other exterior home improvements. All which very closely related to framing and carpentry in general.
2008-2011 were tough years for us due to the recession however it made us look at our skills and find new ways to supplement the nonexistent new home construction market with other jobs. We found that our roots as carpenters translated into many different things.
We moved into the remodel market. We began taking on small exterior and interior renovations. Siding, Painting, Window and door install, decks, fences. We were featured twice on the Timbertech decking “contractor spotlight”.
At the time it seemed like hard times. But in retrospect it was the best thing that ever happened to us. It gave us to tools to become the knowledgable contractor we are today. It taught us many valuable lessons in business and in craftsmanship.
We have been moving more and more into remodeling. We have become one of the premier garage builders in the Portland area. We build some of the most amazing patio covers you will ever see. Our focus today is in the home remodel market. We do kitchen remodels, additions, bathroom remodels, ADU’s. Anything we can get our hands on. Today our goal is to provide the best remodeling service available anywhere. We want to build relationships with our clients that will last a lifetime. We have many repeat clients that call on us every time they have a project. It is our goal to make all of our customers comfortable enough to refer us to all their family and friends.
