There’s nothing more refreshing than the feeling of being home at the end of a long day. It’s this sentiment of comfort and personalization that Adam and Drew, co-owners of Momentum Construction, seek to preserve through each of their projects. With the idea of family at the heart of their work, Drew and Adam aren’t just building houses for their clients, they’re creating homes.
Working in construction always seemed like a natural fit for both Adam and Drew. As a teenager, Adam developed his carpentry skills by working with local contractors who were building homes. He quickly fell in love with the trade, went to college, and continued working with the goal of one day owning his own construction company.
Drew’s career in construction also began during his teenage years when he was hired to work for a large framing contractor. Knowing that he had found his passion, he worked his way up in the company and later started a construction business of his own.
After starting their own businesses separately, Drew and Adam combined their talents in 2010 and founded Momentum Construction. With a focus on community and family values, the two friends were excited to start tackling larger projects that they couldn’t do when they owned separate businesses. However, with the economic downturn working against them, their plans hit a snag when they were rejected for financing from their bank.
Drew explains why this funding was so vital to the sustainability of Momentum Construction: “Some homeowners have cash and a lot don’t. So if we can’t find a bank for them and they can’t get a bank loan, then we’re out of luck.”
But they didn’t give up their plans after being turned away. Representatives from the bank actually referred the two friends to Lake Trust and they jumped at the opportunity for another chance to make their vision come true.
“Lake Trust listened better than any other financial institution we talked to. They actually wanted to hear our story and learn about our business,” said Adam about his business lending experience here. “They wanted to find out what our challenges were so they could offer the right products to help us grow.”
With the means to take on bigger jobs, Drew and Adam have been able to expand their scope of work to take on large remodeling projects and building custom homes.
