TLC Remodeling, Inc. owner Terry Cheek has always appreciated the idea of hard work and helping his fellow man. It’s a philosophy he has based his life on, and something he says will serve as the cornerstone of his business.
“It comes down to the quality of the work you can provide and how you can do that work with both honesty and integrity,” explains Cheek, a graduate of Hammond Tech High School. “There is no price on the trust a customer puts in you and your work. When you are able to take the time to build relationships with your customers, and you can walk into their home and treat it like it’s your very own, that’s when a business succeeds.”
Cheek has witnessed the lackluster work of other area contractors; it’s what led him to establish TLC Remodeling about 4 years ago. Customer response has been so great that he looks forward to expanding it in the spring, with a brand new showroom and a redesigned logo. It’s a natural extension of the business, as Cheek offers remodeling services, too.
Remodeling with confidence
“We realize not everyone is buying a new home,” says Cheek. “Lots of people want to keep the home they have, and remodel it to better fit their lifestyle. And others simply want their home to match their dream of how they’ve always wanted it to be.”
For such an important and personal project, customers look to TLC Remodeling, confident in the business’s professional expertise and work ethic.
TLC Remodeling also offers electrical services. Whether the need is for upgrading your electric service or installing ceiling fans or just a new outlet, TLC Remodeling can help! That’s because even as the business continues to grow, Cheek will not dismiss any job, no matter how small. "If an elderly woman needs her kitchen cabinet fixed, we will be there to help," he says. "We want to be the company they not only call, but the company they conduct business with."
One of the company’s many assets is its skilled group of craftsmen who go out into the community every day, building on the positive reputation of TLC Remodeling. “One of our skilled carpenters is from our church. He had been without a job for awhile because his previous employer down-sized due to the economy.” recalls Cheek. “I knew the quality of his work was amazing, and I knew this was someone that should not be out of a job. I loved being able to offer him a chance at a career with TLC Remodeling.”
Most of all, Cheek looks forward to continuing to serve the community he has loved since he was just a youngster, working alongside his father and brothers. “From the beginning, I have known that the only way to succeed in this industry is to never cut corners,” concludes Cheek. “We are here to take care of our customers and help get their lives back together again.” No wonder TLC Plumbing, Inc., was named “Best of the Region” in 2013.
