About 3 Generations Improvements, Inc
The 1st Generation: Bob Owens, Product Manager
Bob started in the industry in 1956 and worked for various manufacturers of siding and window products as a sales representative and eventually working as the VP of Sales and Marketing for Alsco in 1978. Shortly thereafter, Bob and his son Kurt started their first home improvement company in Spokane, WA, called Owens Western Builders.& Bob is now responsible for the research of all siding and windows products up and down the west coast, but let’s be honest, he is fishing most of the time! His vast experience, wisdom and knowledge of the industry and its products are instrumental to the success of 3 Generations Improvements.
In Bob’s free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Patricia, of 64 years, his 4 children, 8 grandchildren, and 11 great grandchildren! He enjoys the outdoors and especially fishing.The 2nd Generation: Kurt Owens, President
Kurt started in the industry in 1975 and has remained in the retail of home improvement products ever since. Starting in Spokane, WA and now in Northern California, his reputation has always been one of loyalty, honesty and customer service that is second to none! Since 1989, Kurt has personally furnished over 600 homes with new siding or windows in Northern California, with nearly 300 of them coming from referrals. Kurt and his son, Jeremy, run virtually all of the appointments and many times they meet homeowners together.
If Kurt isn’t working, he is with his wife, Joanie, of 33 years or with one of his 6 grandchildren. He too enjoys the outdoors, but would rather be babysitting.The 3rd Generation: Jeremy Owens, Vice President
Although Jeremy has been around the industry since he was a toddler, he officially started in the industry in 2002. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science Degree at CSUS, he spent 2 years working as an Operations Manager for Alside, a manufacturer of siding and windows, in Sacramento. Jeremy often travels with Kurt on appointments or can be found behind the scenes, setting up projects and communicating with manufacturers.
Jeremy enjoys spending time with his wife, Valerie, of 7 years and his 3 kids; Aubrey, Shelby, and Andrew. Jeremy also enjoys fishing, camping and sports and still plays soccer and a little roller hockey today. See this recent blog post with a family update!Logan Smith, Project Manager
Logan and Jeremy have been friends for 20 years – growing up together as kids, High School best friends, Groomsman and now working together! Logan is as close to family that 3 Generations Improvements could find!
Logan graduated college in 2003, and has been working in the construction business ever since. He worked as a project manager for Delta Construction, has managed construction and landscape crews in both the commercial and residential fields. He has a design background and loves to be out in the field to see a project to completion.
A resident of Rancho Murieta, Logan is married to his wife Lissa, and has 3 girls; Kylie, Aidie and Maizie. He loves playing golf, watching football and canoe rides with the family.
In the Beginning…
Before 3 Generations Improvements came to be, the Owens family started as Owens Western Builders based out of Spokane Washington. As you can see, it was back in the day when orange and long hair was in style – oh wait, I guess that is the style these days too… By the way, Kurt is the mustached one in the back row and Jeremy is standing at the bottom right.
Remarkable, trustworthy, talented company that understands the house as a system - an investment in durable quality
3Generations completed a major home improvement for my home during the summer of 2017, and I am absolutely delighted to provide this review because they deserve the highest accolades. If you want stress relief, hire 3Generations. If you want trusted professionals, hire 3Generations. They know what they are doing and will exceed your expectations. My home is a standard builder grade production home, about 25 years old and was decaying from hidden and obvious dry rot of the wood siding, trim, and window sills. The windows had failed and provided no thermal benefit. The gutters were rusted out. Over the years I tried to remedy things with painting and cutting out and replacing dry rot in obvious spots, but conditions ultimately got worse. Truth be told, these building failures could have been prevented if the original builder had done all the right things in the beginning, but there is little evidence that this builder cared about how to make buildings last. Years later, I had the problem of fixing major problems. This was not a small fix and I knew it was going to cost a lot to get a fix that lasted. It had to be done right. I wanted someone who understood weather proofing from a building science perspective, not just a window installer or siding guy who could make things look good. I wanted someone who looked at a house as a system, as an assembly of integrated parts where you have to understand how the materials and layers work together to prevent rainwater entry and to provide for drying. Homes get a lot of stress, particularly claddings (siding) and trim with rains and sun, temperature swings and ultra violet radiation. You want things to last and look good using modern sheathings in a properly insulated wall assembly. I got all I wanted and more. This is the best investment I could have made and I feel good about it. From start to finish, I worked with Kurt Owens, President of this family business and his son, Jeremy. I had difficulty blocking the time to schedule the job and they were flexible in working with me. Kurt explained everything in detail and made sure I understood why I needed to do more than just replace a window or cut out some dry rot. He proposed the siding and windows to fit my needs for quality, durability and attractiveness with consideration for my budget. I took his suggestions and am completely satisfied! He said the job would take 2 weeks and it did: on time, on schedule, within budget. No overruns! His communication and follow-up with me was beyond my expectations. The 3G’s crew were remarkable on site. They worked like a well oiled machine: fast, collaborative, no mistakes. They had all the tools and materials needed on the job site and worked from 8-5, non-stop. Vladimir, the crew supervisor, is a skilled craftsman and conscientious, motivating team leader. They cleaned up the job site at the end of every day. Watching them working together was like watching a ballet. My neighbors were so impressed that they stood around and simply watched - - amazed. No one had ever seen this kind of workmanship before. The finished job not only makes my house beautiful but it also makes it feel more comfortable. It is quieter inside and the house feels tighter than before. I expect my heating bills will go down this winter and my air conditioning bills have already receded. In fact during one of our unusual over 100 degree days this past summer, I didn’t have to turn the air conditioning on until 5:00 PM. I was sorry to see the job complete because I loved having this team at my home. Working with 3Generations was a sincere pleasure! This is a contractor you can trust for integrity and the highest quality standards whether it’s product knowledge, installation, trade excellence, customer care, fairness, follow-through or communication. In the end, they did a final inspection and took me around the house to show me the details that make a difference. Pride in workmanship was evident. I highly recommend this company, their people and suppliers without any reservations. Do not hesitate to engage their services.
Installation of siding
3 Generations was fantastic! They were easy to work with, fairly priced, and we are so happy with the way the siding came out. We would hire them again in a heartbeat.
Best Company we have ever worked with!
Jeremy of 3Generations Improvements made our experience the best it could ever be. He met with us and helped us navigate the many decisions we needed to make for the siding on our home. He was patient with us and answered our many questions both in person and by email. When the job began, his crew was topnotch! They arrived timely each day and worked hard all day. What was really appreciated is how they were able to accommodate a few add-ons that we did not think of ahead of time - adding electrical outlet at the front porch and installing a new front door. They did the work for us and did an excellent job! Jeremy sent us emails consistently throughout the job updating us on their progress and what to expect next. Who does that? We have done various home improvements/remodels over the years on our 1950s Ranch home and we can honestly say this was the best company we have ever worked with. Their prices were very fair, their work thorough and precise, which has updated our home tremendously! Lastly, working with a company that consists of three generations of family, you know their business is their life and it means a lot to them. It is reflected in the work that they do! Thanks so much!
Jeremy and his crew were courteous, professional and extremely customer oriented. I am so sorry I can't remember the foreman of the crew's name, but he was absolutely approachable, easy to discuss any possible changes and went out of his way to explain the project's progress and any possible changes, I (the customer) wanted to discuss. This is a class/professional outfit and I fully recommend 3Generations.
My family has worked with 3G more than once. They are great to work with. Do amazing work. Best price and product. I would highly recommend 3G.
From planning through execution, the attention to detail from this company is excellent
Starting with Kurt and working down the line with Jeremy, Logan and Eugene, we are completely impressed with the knowledge of the product this company uses and the installation of said product. We totally enjoyed the work crew that completed the residing of our home, their attention to detail, and felt like we were losing family when the project came to an end. We could not be more pleased with the cost and the end result. Great looking home with lower energy bills! Thank you 3 Generation Improvements, Inc.
