Dave Penfield was born and raised in Montgomery Alabama. He moved to Colorado at 19yrs old and married wife Caroline (from Chicago Area) and eventually moved to Chicago in 2014.
While in Colorado, he worked on a Dude ranch for 2 years in Granby, just outside Rocky Mountain Nat Park. He also lived in Ft. Collins and worked in the construction and landscaping industry, eventually owning and operating his own company- Penfield Contracting, specializing in Roofing and Exteriors. During this time he also earned his graduate degree in Business Management from Regis University. Growing up in a family business allowed David to develop the ability to take ownership of any project that he is involved in.
Upon moving to Chicago, Mr. Penfield started his career in the restoration industry as a project manager working directly with home and business owners to restore their property after damage. Most of his responsibilities involve interacting with clients and, all involved parties, to provide the best service possible. This ensures complete satisfaction throughout the process of any project, large or small. Understanding projects from beginning to end has given him the necessary tools to prepare thorough estimates and make the process of construction and restoration move quickly and within budgets.
Mr. Penfield appreciates the opportunity to earn each customers trust and provide a quality experience with Phoenix Restoration.
