Celebrating 30 Years in Home Improvement

Thirty years ago today—August 28, 1978—when I was just 21 years old, I started Lipford Remodeling, later renamed Lipford Construction, Inc. I still remember my very first job and most of the 3,000 or so projects we’ve worked on since then.

There are very few construction companies that remain in business this long, so I consider our anniversary quite an achievement. I’m very proud of all the projects we’ve completed over the years, and all the homeowners we’ve made happy, as well as the sterling reputation we have achieved in Mobile, Alabama, and across the country.

While I’ve worked very hard, it would never have been possible without the tireless work and dedication of the other members of our remodeling team: Barbara Johnson, Bob Caron, and Wiley Bullock. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all that you have done to make this day a reality. There are many other people who have contributed to our longevity as well, and I know we are very blessed and lucky to be able to continue doing what we’re doing.

AND without a doubt the one who has helped me the most—in more ways than I can ever name—is my wife, Sharon. She has been by my side through the good times and bad and always encouraged me to keep going. To her I owe a very special thanks.

Here’s to many more great years ahead!


  1. Congratulations on your 30th anniversary! What a great accomplishment!
    I met you several years ago, and have not kept in touch (unless you count watching your show and reading glowing news articles). I would appreciate interviewing you for my blog so my readers can value your expertise as much as I do. Interested? – Girard Frank Bolton, III., Mobile, Alabama
