WILLIAMS, Ariz. - With about 20 years of experience under his belt, Jay Reitz started Reitz Restoration and Home Construction in November.

Reitz worked as a carpentry contractor for several years in New York before moving to Arizona and working for other contractors. Now Reitz is working as a general contractor.

"Having a general remodeler's license is altogether different, because you're going in a number of different directions and working with different (subcontractors)," he said.

Reitz specializes in high end remodeling, which can include crown molding, custom kitchens, bathrooms, whole home remodels, additions, siding, stone work and tile.

The business also specializes in restoring historic homes, including bungalows and Victorians. Reitz's experience working in New York City has helped him with that part of the business.

"Even if they're new builds but they're going for that look of a home, that's something that we have a lot of history in. So that's an advantage that we have that not too many people around have," he said. "There's the whole northern log look and timber frame houses, which are similar styles, but there are a lot of differences that people don't realize. So creating an authentic home that fits that style, that's kind of the direction that we're going in right now."

Reitz Restoration and Home Construction is based in Williams, but serves the rest of northern Arizona as well, including Sedona and Flagstaff.

While Reitz's business is still growing, he said he's satisfied with the current size of the operation.

"Staying as a small company is nice for quality control also because I'm not going to have the volume of jobs that a big contractor would have with two, three, four crews," Reitz said. "So I'm on site, I'm able to watch what my subs are doing."

Reitz will participate in the Flagstaff Home and Garden Show March 28, 29 and 30 at the Northern Arizona University Skydome.
