About Senterline Construction
After graduating from Suffield High School in 1983, Steve Senter married his high school sweetheart, Wendy, and joined his father in the family construction business - Senter Construction. Steve was no stranger to the construction industry, as he spent many weekends and summers working beside his dad in this twenty-year-old business. When Steve began full time in the business, Senter Construction was just beginning a new venture - the building of log homes for another family business, American Heritage Log Homes. The building of log homes and the travel involved took Steve all over New England and kept him busy for several years.
Also keeping him busy was his rapidly growing family. 1985 marked the birth of Steve Jr. Their daughter, Melissa, was born in 1986, followed closely by Robert in 1987. In 1997, Steve was presented with an opportunity to build three custom homes right in his community. Considering his family obligations and desire to work closer to home, the decision to branch out on his own was not a hard one. Senterline Construction was born.
The primary focus of Senterline Construction, in the beginning, was new home construction and remodeling. In an industry rampant with rip-offs and shoddy craftsmanship, Steve felt passionate about being able to offer his customers a higher standard of quality in both his craftsmanship and service.
The dedication he demonstrated in all areas of his business didn't go unnoticed. In 1998, The Home Depot of Enfield, CT approached him with an offer to work as a sub-contractor installing kitchens for that store. Steve welcomed the opportunity to expand his horizons and Senterline Construction in this way. This marked the beginning of what was to become a wonderful business relationship between The Home Depot and Senterline Construction. In 2002, Senterline Construction became the exclusive kitchen installers for both the Enfield store and the new Bloomfield store. By this time, Steve Jr. was a part of the full-time team and Steve's youngest son, Robert, was soon to follow suit by working on weekends in the same way Steve Sr. did with his father.
The work ethic that Steve, along with his family, continued to work by only served to make him a likely candidate for other Home Depot opportunities. In 2007, Senterline Construction took on five more Home Depot stores as their exclusive kitchen installers. In the beginning of 2013, Senterline became the sub-contractors for all bathroom installations for six Home Depot stores.
Presently, Senterline Construction employs approximately 15 people, of which a few are family members. Robert and Harrison serve as Project Managers and Melissa has her own place beside her dad as his Office Manager. We are proud to say that the standards and ideals that this business began with still hold true today. We continue to remain deeply committed to providing the highest level of quality craftsmanship and professional, caring customer service.
