About Nebraska Contractors:
Greg and Shawn Carlson started Carlson Projects in a very interesting time in their lives. In 1992, they decided it would be good to start a business, build a house, and have their second child. In the construction business, you must be two things: slightly crazy and have a desire to serve people. They were and are a little bit of both…
“Our hope is to leave a legacy of craftsmanship in everything we do and raise the standard of construction in every aspect.”
… Greg was always known at his former job at Weather Craft in Lincoln, as the guy you send out when something is wrong and no one knows how to fix it and the client isn’t the happiest about it. He thrives in that setting. You show him a problem and he has a desire to fix it like no one else will. He will not only fix the problem, but he will care enough to walk through that problem with you. He will explain it and show you how the problem has been fixed and how you can prevent it in the future. This passion for solving problems and loving a challenge, is what propelled him into starting his own business.
He started small and worked his way into neighborhoods with specialty roofing such as tile, slate, and wood shingle roofs. He built a reputation of being the go to expert for those problem roofs. After building his roofing clientele, he would be asked if he did interior work such as kitchens, additions, and other remodeling projects. Greg had the knowledge from previous jobs he had worked, so in 1995, Carlson Projects started remodeling in winter and roofing in summer.
If you fast forward to 2011, Greg brought on his youngest son, Stefan, in a small capacity at first. After learning all aspects of the business and dusting off his childhood tool belt, Stefan decided to take on the remodeling side and pursue it year-round and has been focused on building the same reputation that his dad built in roofing. That, coupled with Shawn’s keen eye for design and love for research, the two became a mother and son remodeling team to bring out the best in every clients’ home. It all began with the desire to serve clients and solve problems and that was as much of a business plan that Greg needed.
Now in 2016, our team has grown from 2 people to 15. Our team has brought on another family member to complete our family business. That addition was Scott, Greg and Shawn’s eldest son. He has rounded out our team by taking on the job of organizing and implementing systems and running Carlson Projects roofing operations. He has a knack for solving problems in a completely different way than anyone else. He understands the world through a different mindset and that is what has helped propel us in 2016. Our hope is to leave a legacy of craftsmanship in everything we do and raise the standard of construction in every aspect.
We hope as our family grows, you will grow with us. We can’t wait to see what challenges and problems we can solve for you.
The Carlson Family,
Greg, Shawn, Scott, and Stefan
