Who We Are
Paul Johnson founded Heritage Carpentry, Inc. in 2001 and has since built a team of over 40 top notch union carpenters who can build just about anything out of wood. The carpenters honed in their skills building houses for Paul and others, along with numerous commercial projects and multi-family dwellings. The Heritage Carpentry name stands alone in the Rockford area as the top union carpentry contractors - we have references and testimonials to prove it.
As Paul’s reputation as a creative builder of quality homes grew, it made sense to form a separate organization to administer the home building process. Thus, Heritage Signature Homes, Inc. came into being.
Having direct control of the carpentry work gives Heritage Signature Homes an edge up over other home builders on quality, costs and safety. Roughly half of the work that goes into building a home is done by our carpenters – it’s nice to know they will be on the job site when you need them to be.
In 2005, Paul was joined by his friend and associate from a past employer, Kurt Taylor. A CPA with an MBA in Entrepreneurship and 16 years of finance experience in the construction industry, Kurt's knowledge of internal controls and growth strategies was the last piece of the puzzle Paul needed to take his business to the next level. The fact that Kurt had general contracted and built a couple of large custom homes on the side was also a plus.
After joining forces, Paul and Kurt added Heritage Concrete, LLC., a full service union concrete contractor, to their group of companies to further enhance their desire to have better control of the building process from the ground up.
Together and with the rest of the Heritage staff, Paul and Kurt make a formidable team. Unlike the larger homebuilders, they are personally involved in every project Heritage Signature Homes takes on. With the big builders, you'll be lucky to meet the local area managers let alone the owners. At Heritage, Paul and Kurt are always available and at your service.
