Devotion to doing, being, learning....
Many years ago John Muir devoted himself to preserving our national parks; Yosemite Valley (as shown above) being one of them. We recently watched a documentary on the pioneer climbers of Yosemite who devoted themselves to getting to the top of those rocks in the best & fastest ways they could -- Royal Robbins being the first to make it to the top of Half Dome and the second to El Capitan.

These are just two examples of devotion; however, there are a myriad of ways it can be translated: You are devoted to your spouse.  You may be devoted to learning to play an instrument or learning a sport (such as rock climbing or surfing). You can devote yourself to living life as God has instructed us. Your devotion lies in being the best parent you can be. You read a daily devotion and spend quiet time before your day gets the best of you!

As you can see, the list is we'll just share a few of the things that are near and dear to us that we have become devoted to.  

Tips from the Pro
As a teenager I surfed a little, but I skateboarded a lot. The skating helped, but learning to surf has been a both a process and a blessing in many ways. You get to spend a thrilling Saturday morning in God's backyard, the ocean--you see the white caps at the top as the wind hits the tip of the wave hard and you see the ripple across the ocean as the mist hits your face. You position yourself and wait for the next set, you begin to paddle, you feel the wave start to lift and push you, then you push up and turn to ride down the face; the rush and speed are amazing. You can't wait to do it again, you stay out until you can't paddle or lift yourself on to your board anymore. That's when you call it a day.

But the the time spent with the boys (Adam & his friend Bo) is another blessing and truly priceless. We have an hour drive there and another hour home; on the way back we st op for lunch. I cherish that time so much, it's a great time to ask them questions & talk about all kinds of things: school, life, girls, games, cross country, youth group, how their walk with God is going, how their daily devotion is going. It's a time to listen to them and bond with them. I am watching our son go from a little boy to a young man and it's all happening too fast. He is one of the greatest gifts God has blessed us with and I can't imagine my life without his kind words & smile. He's the driving force behind my devotion to surfing.  

I'm also devoting myself to be the best husband I can be and I know better than anybody that I haven't always been. Each day brings new challenges and Lisa & I have committed to reading the 1 Year Love Dare devotional to bring us closer. I pray to God and thank him for her, I couldn't be more blessed to have her as my bride. I ask Jesus to teach me how to love her unconditionally no matter what; the way God sees me.

So I hope that sharing my devotions & commitments have brought something to the forefront for you; something in life that you may have been dreaming about doing, being or's never too late. Keep God first in your life, He will never steer you wrong.

The time you spend 
alone with God will 
your character 
and increase your
Then your integrity and godly behavior
in an unbelieving world will make others long to 
know the Lord.

Devoted to Honesty & Integrity  

Then. now. always.

You've seen it on our website, our signs, our Christmas cards for years now: Built on Honesty & Integrity. For us, it's not just a tagline; it truly is a way of life and of conducting our business (inspired by the Bible verse Hebrews 13:8).
  All Pro has been devoted to these principles since the very beginning, way back in 1989 when it was just a young Paul with a dream and a hammer. Nowadays Paul instructs every new team member that gets hired in the "4 point plan to success the All Pro way!"  

Honesty: Always the #1 most important thing. N o secrets or hidden agendas. If you say what you mean and mean what you say, you can avoid confusion & conflict down the line.
Integrity: Complete transparency & communication coupled with compassion. This builds on being honest by keeping in mind the Golden Rule when choosing every action to begin with, "Do unto others..."   
Relationships: For us it's not just business; it's friendships. Beyond honesty from the start and integrity in the moment, a relationship-building mindset works toward a long, happy future. Not only is it great for customers, it's also good for business! We're proud that repeat customers, referrals, and friends/associates now make up the bulk of our business.
Quality: All of this together makes us work our hardest to always provide quality products and workmanship for projects of all sizes and budgets. Whether it's hanging a shelf or overhauling a whole house, we'll be attentive to every detail because we love what we do and we're proud of every job we've ever done.

It sounds simple, but it's surprising how many companies can overlook these principles in a rush to get things done quickly or cheaply. We've never forgotten though and the "All Pro way" has been working out great for us for 27 years and counting - clients and industry experts can't stop talking about us! No need to keep it a secret; feel free to share our philosophy and tell everyone success is as easy as 1, 2, 3, ...4!


Once again we're proud to announce our spot in Remodeling Magazine's Top 550! The prestigious list recognizes top performing contractors from all over the US. This year we came in at #206 for Full-Service Remodelers, up from #231 last year. 

We're on an unbroken streak since 2009, ever since we came roaring out of the Great Recession better than ever. Our devotion to our business and our customers has made us one of the industry success stories through good times and bad.
