His family business background taught him several life-long lessons such having a strong work ethic, treating customers fairly and learning to improvise and diversify for the long haul.
Over the course of the last 48 years Shaffer has had the opportunity to work with a variety of builders on home sites as well as commercial buildings throughout Westmoreland County and beyond. Please see our Gallery Page for project photos with:
Often the general contractor’s name is highly recognizable as he prominently displays his sign in front of the project. Many don’t realize that the “foundation” of any good project begins with proper grading and digging of the foundation. The installation of utility lines along with water and sewer lines are the basis for living in a maintenance-free, comfortable home or office for many years after the project is complete and this is where Shaffer excels.
Philip Shaffer’s favorite saying … “We are professionals”.
