All Trades was Founded by Brian & Melissa Konitzer
At a young age, Brian Konitzer had an aptitude for carpentry and became a talented craftsman. Over the years, he developed skills in many of the trades.
In 1992, Brian worked for Service Master, a leading Water, and Mold Remediation Company. It was a good start for Brian. He became a licensed remediation expert. After nine years of experience, he developed his best-practices to cope with water extraction, water damage, thermal imaging, moisture detection, building dry-out, mold remediation, structural damage, smoke odor removal, and fire damage restoration.
Our competency is not limited to just remediation. Brian’s impressive know-how and skill base includes home building, home improvements, remodeling and custom building construction.
Working in the trades came easy and natural for Brian. His supervisory and project management skills grew out of his experience of implementing many large construction projects, leading skilled tradespeople and guiding projects to a successful conclusion.
As the project leader, Brian Konitzer is involved with the detail specifications, construction tasks, timeline, budget, and different methods to implement the project. He is proactively engaged in reviewing each work plan with All Trades crew’s supervisors for the 4 Florida service areas .
Brian ensures each crew member practices his high standards that he considers vital to achieving customer satisfaction and keeping his top-quality reputation intact. As the boss, he insists everyone is aware and continually working on the following:
- Be Cost Effective – keeping cost down and pass the saving on to the customer
- Work Efficiently – think ahead & get the job completed faster with fewer steps & less rework
- Take Pride in Quality Work – doing the job right from the start with excellent workmanship and quality results to put your signature on it as your contribution to the project
Konitzer Family Business
Brian had always wanted to run his own building construction company, and he had the skills to do it. In 1998, Brian and his wife Melissa took their Income Tax refund of $2,000 and invested it in their new company called Konitzer Construction and Restoration Inc. at Apollo Beach.
Their new company was ready and able to perform almost any type of building construction services from renovation to painting, to drywall to roofing. In those days, there was quite a bit of walk-in business for diverse types of work.
Our business model was formed to solve customer building problems. We focused on understanding the problem and what the customer wants, and we just did it. Solving customer problems and doing it right the first-time has become the cornerstone of our business. We are involved in many trades, to get the whole job done with excellence.
Restoration Requires Knowledge of Insurance Claim Processing and How to Work with Insurance Companies
While running his company, Brian also worked for a large insurance company as a licensed insurance adjuster. He learned a great deal about how insurance companies evaluate and process insurance claims. This knowledge has served Brian well in his own business for Hurricane Damage, Fire Damage, and Water Damage.
With Brian’s extensive experience at Service Master and as an insurance adjuster, he has been able to work with Insurance companies to complete the claim promptly. Looking out for his customers with better service, reduce costs and best quality is a key principle Brian and his employees embrace for every job.
All Trades of Construction and Restoration Inc.
In 2003, the family business changed its name from Konitzer Construction & Restoration Inc. to All Trades Construction & Restoration Inc.. The reason for the name change was to emphasize our broad skills in various construction contract services that deal with all the trades and to focus on solving our customer’s problem. All Trades has been recognized over the years as a high-quality construction contractor that stands firmly behind their work.
We do everything possible to deliver excellent work-products to satisfy our customers completely. When our clients discover All Trades’ extensive portfolio of building construction services and have already experienced first-hand our services, they call us back for renovations, repairs, remodeling of kitchens and other home improvement projects, as well as, room additions.
Our customers trust us to provide the most cost-effective construction using the best workmanship and quality building materials. All Trades backs up their work with a warranty for both labor and materials.
Our Business Strategy Relies on Roofing Services
In Florida, your roof takes the punishment from rain, hurricanes and hot summer sun. The average roof in Florida lasts between 15 to 25 years. Also, your roof is the most important part of the building envelope that protects your living space from the outside elements.
A small leak in your roof can have catastrophic effects if left unrepaired. A single roof leak over a few weeks can produce extensive damage to your home and can even result in the growth of mold. Mold is very unhealthy and can make your family sick. Your home is your biggest investment. All Trades will help protect your home investment and your family.
Brian Konitzer wanted a business strategy that would help people, generate new business, show his company’s building construction expertise and deliver quality results. Brian relies on Roofing Services as the overarching business strategy to get new customers and to help people. Florida Residence will always need Roofing Services for Roof Repair or Roof Replacement. Once our customer experiences our Roofing Service, most of them come back to us for other building construction services. Over 75% of our business comes from existing clients that liked our roofing services. Our goal is to keep our customers for a lifetime and happy with our services. We still have customers from our first year in business that calls us for service.
All Trades Innovative Services
Our most valuable asset is our best-practices. Our best-practices are developed to perform our quality work efforts with our construction crews more efficiently. Every construction job we complete will help us to assess and improve our procedures to execute better services. We are committed to improving our ability to deliver value to our customers.
To illustrate, in 2005 during the hurricanes in Miami and Fort Lauderdale area, insurance claims for tile roofs were extremely high. Many times the extent of the roof damage was 10 to 20 tiles. As the roofs aged, the color of the tiles changed from their initial install. The common practice was to replace a section of the roof, so the new tiles color was not conspicuous. Replacing roof sections took time and was expensive. Brian Konitzer got the great idea of remanufacturing the individual tiles, match the color and to just replace the defective tiles. This new approach was faster, more cost-effective and at a reduced work effort
Brian’s idea of using remanufacturing tiles is an innovation we are proud to mention. All Trades has repaired over 5,000 roofs using this technique of using remanufactured tiles. It saved time and money. Over time, tile manufacturers got involved, and building codes changed that required product approval that changed this practice of remanufacturing individual tiles. This story demonstrates our ability to think outside-the-box and deliver greater value to our customers.
