Shawn started roofing in 1992 learning everything he could until he started his own general contracting business in 1996. He decided to make the switch from installation to management once he realized that he liked making connections with the homeowners more than installing a roof on their home. He enjoyed seeing homeowners faces light up after their vision was created through him. In 2009 Shawn was offered an opportunity to get into commercial exterior remodeling. Feeling that he had got as much as possible out of residential exterior remodeling, he went for it. His everyday roll changed from managing himself and meeting with homeowner’s to managing his commercial teams and bidding commercial jobs from strip malls to multi family home associations.
Shawn joined NexGen Exteriors in December of 2017 opening our Commercial division with his 26 years of experience. He has sold and managed over 40 million dollars in the last nine years across Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa.

Shawn is a father of five: Kendall, Calan, Price, Lenan and Logan. He is newly married to his lovely wife Lisa and together they run a hobby farm. As a family they love to be active doing things like; playing sports, hunting, and fishing. They recently added a few miniature goats and an Australian Shepard to their family. Shawn also enjoys traveling and is a huge Minnesota sports fan.
