When he’s not working, Joe devotes much of his free time to an avocational interest in viticulture. “I grow grapes and make my own wine,” he explains. “Right now, I actually have 50 gallons sitting around, waiting to be bottled. My wife and I also enjoy going wine tasting around the Bay Area.” In addition to winemaking, Joe enjoys outdoor activities like biking, wakeboarding in the delta and snowboarding at Lake Tahoe. Additionally, Joe keeps up with his and Jill’s two grown sons, Timothy and Steven, both of whom are pursuing careers in the construction trades.

"Josh was referred to me to paint the interior of my kitchen and living room. I was immediately surprised by his professionalism. He was always prompt, professional, very enjoyable to work with and did a wonderful job. Josh was always concerned that I was happy and he was always accommodating. I was so impressed with his work that I have accelerated, the time schedule, for a large painting job I have planned. I look forward to using his firm again and recommending him to others. I am very pleased with his work. Thank you Josh!!"

It is obvious that they used better paint and when through all of the appropriate steps to make sure that paint will last.

SAN MATEO — Long before he was painting professionally, Daniel Morra had little interest in the trade—or any other, for that matter. “After high school, a couple of general contractors I knew offered to get me involved in the construction business, but it didn’t really appeal to me,” he remembers.
