Thank you for taking the time to stop by and view my blog, The Home Base.

My name is Jeff Moeslein and my intention in creating this site is to provide a forum for me to review and discuss issues relevant to my passion, home improvements.

Currently, I am the President and one of the owners of Legacy Remodeling, Inc. Legacy is a specialty remodeling contractor that operates in SW Pennsylvania as well as parts of Ohio and WV. We perform between 750 and 1000 remodeling projects each year including window replacements, siding, roofs, soffit, fascia, decks, gutters, finished basements, sunrooms, room additions, kitchens, baths and home energy upgrades.

I have worked in this industry for the past 10 years. However, in reality, I have been around it all of my life. My father, Ken, who is also my partner in Legacy, worked in Alcoa's building products division when I was younger, and after working at several other manufacturer's of home improvement products, started a business called Swing Line Windows, in 1987.

I spent my teen years helping to set up home show displays, and later, summers home from Penn State were spent working on installation crews.

After graduation from Penn State, I started to work at Swing Line, spending two years working as a sales consultant, then as our marketing manager. As I continued to work in the business, I earned my M.B.A. from Robert Morris University. Eventually, after acquiring several Owens Corning franchise's, Ken and I reorganized our business's into Legacy.

In running Legacy for the past several years, I have learned a lot about the home improvement industry its products, suppliers, regulations and both the good and bad sides of the business. Future entries to this blog will focus on these various area's in an attempt to provide insight into specific issues relevant to home owners as well as to others involved in this industry.
