When I started in this business 37 years ago...
... Drafting for the firm that designed the Bay Pines V.A. Hospital, I had no idea I'd one day be in the field swinging a hammer. But after 9 years of colar and tie, 9 to 5 work I burned out and decided to try the field for a change. The first year out was tough. The work was hot in the summer and cold in the winter, I suffered many a purple thumb and rain or shine, we had to show up. I wasn't sure till the second year that I wanted to do it. But midway through the second year I joined up with Carpenter Contractors of America and I was impressed with the level of commitment and dedication they expected from their crews and gave in return. Each person on my team knew his trade and had been doing it with the company for no less than 3 years. That's a long time for a framer in one job.

The tools we used were always quality power tools and replacement or repair took place the day a tool was damaged.

Our work was always done as quickly as possible in both occupied and non occupied homes and the job site was

always cleaned up at the end of every day.

Framing was about all we did then and while it kept me busy, after the third year with the company I began looking for additional side work doing more generalized repairs and room additions which I found much more interesting and rewarding. Shortly after that I started Mike Spangler, Home Repairs, requested and received my occupational liscense and after several years of repairs I started the Home Inspection side of it.

In 2007, due to the then economic crunch, I moved to Hillsborough, North Carolina and shortly thereafter, applied to and started work with PATRIOT BUILDING COMPANY, an unlimited, commercial general contracting company as a Project Superintendant where I was in charge of numerous multi-million dollar commercial construction projects in the Chapel Hill, North Carolina area.
After one year of successfull and profitable field supervised projects, I was promoted to Project Estimator, Junior Project Manager with the firm and spent another 4 years with them.

When the company folded in 2012 I moved back to Florida and started Mike Spangler - Affordable Home Repairs, LLC and gathered a clientel of 6, property management companies covering over 40 Home Owner Association subdivisions encompassing several hundred home owners and for 2 years, worked with design needs, home repairs and street curb & sidewalk concrete form work.

In 2014 I moved back to North Carolina briefly while I closed on an historic home in Danville, Virginia and afterwards, began work on rehabbing and restoration.

Now, after all those years of experience and customer satisfaction, you can expect the same from my work for you.
