Central Florida’s #1 Home Improvement Company in Lakeland Since 1979
“It All Started With My Dad”
Conner was founded by Allen Conner in 1979 after being inspired by those closest to him – his family. Allen states, “It all started as I was growing up watching my dad working in the siding industry – beginning with replacing old wood or asbestos siding with aluminum and eventually into vinyl siding. I worked with my dad and uncles while going to school and I learned the invaluable life lesson of treating others with respect, the way we all want and deserve to be treated.“
Today, this ideal of treating others as we would want to be treated ourselves is alive and well at our home improvement company and forms the backbone of how we do business.
Our talented staff members include:
Allen Conner, President and Founder – State Certified Building Contractor, Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR), Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist (CAPS) both from NAHB.
