About GF Sprague
Lots of folks want to know if there is a Mr. Sprague. Well, yes. Back in 1969 Jerry aka GF Sprague, our founder, at 19 left his family’s restoration company where he had trained and worked since he was 10. On his own, Jerry started out working from his sophomore Babson dorm room, sometimes fixing neighborhood homes and Babson buildings between classes. He learned his trade skills from the old masters, and that practice continues to be passed down through our mentoring program. We call it “Green to Gold” where we match up the Green young apprentices with our Gold masters. Take Paul who has been here for 30 years, and has helped train many generations of skilled craftsmen. Our success is also guided by our dedicated managers Jake, Steve, and Joey. What our customers expect is that our certified experts and craftsmen will deliver the right job the first time.
GF Sprague spends more time and resources caring for its existing customers who in turn refer us to their circle of friends rather than relying just on new ones. We still service many customers and their family decades later, some dating back to 1969.
That culture of “Serving Our Existing Customers First” starts now and continues years after the project has been completed. We honor you as a “Customer for Life” so regular warranty inspections are always Free.
Jerry still loves what he does, actively leading us today, going strong now for over 50 years with no plans to retire anytime soon. Is this the kind of company you’d trust with your home?
