About Us

Zachary has been building things since he was a kid. He started at age nine, building lawn signs out of wood and giving them to my neighbors. After attending a timber framing school at thirteen, he decided to work in construction for the rest of his life. He started an apprenticeship which turned into a job and worked his way up to lead carpenter. He was always driven to start this business and knew that he could offer a truly unique service. He started Dettmore Home Improvements as a one man operation and it quickly grew by word of mouth. His passion to uplift the craft of carpentry has made Dettmore Home Improvements a magnet for like minded craftsmen who seek a company that values individuals who want to hone their craft. 

Our Team

Charlie is a gifted carpenter who spent his childhood renovating his family's sprawling shingle style with his father. After he completed college he moved to Wyoming and after getting his fill of big mountain snowboarding came back to the East Coast. His expertise is finish carpentry and he is the craftsmen responsible for almost all of our custom finish work. 

Brian is a detail focused carpenter who decided to work in the trades after college. He worked for several years for a local general contractor building his renovation knowledge base and skill set. His aspirations to deepen his understanding of fine finish work led him to find Dettmore Home Improvements. His intense focus on doing things correctly makes him a huge asset to our company.
