A graduate of Hammond Tech High School, 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, who also owns TLC Plumbing, Inc. “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.”
As a result of witnessing the lackluster work of other area contractors, Cheek established TLC Remodeling just over three years ago, and looks forward to continuing to expand it in the near future, including a brand new showroom and a redesigned logo. Yet, as they grow, Cheek is determined not to discriminate against any size of job. “If there is an elderly woman who needs her kitchen cabinet fixed, we are going to be there to help,” he says. “We want to be the company they not only call, but the company they can conduct business with.”
One of the company’s many assets is their 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 at 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.”
