Best of Edmond: Homestead Construction
Scott Lubert’s passion for the construction industry started when he was old enough to swing a hammer and climb a tree. He built his first tree house at the age of nine and has been designing and building things with his hands ever since.
As the owner of Homestead Construction, Lubert now provides roofing, remodeling, restoration and general contracting services. His company specializes in roofing, but they can take care of anything from room additions, kitchen and bath remodels, outdoor kitchens, flooring, painting, plumbing, electrical, fencing and more. “We are a one stop shop,” said Lubert. “There’s no job that’s too big or
After more than 10 years in the insurance industry, Lubert decided to trade-in his suit and tie to pursue his dream of starting his own construction business. Naming the company after the street he grew up on, Lubert launched Homestead Construction in 2008.
“It was a huge leap of faith,” Lubert says. “I wake up every morning knowing I get to do what I love doing. I don’t think there’s a lot of people who can wake up and say they love what they do.”
According to Lubert, the biggest hurdle of owning a construction business is trying to overcome the stigma that construction companies carry. “A lot of people have had a bad experience or heard of a bad experience,” he says. “I know they won’t have that with me. I don’t like not being able to meet someone’s expectations. I think people know that in the end.”
With a construction education from the University of Kansas and background in remodeling, it was the years of processing weather damage claims and working with policy holders where Lubert learned the importance of customer service.
“My philosophy is that my ad budget is referrals,” Lubert said. “I spend my time and energy in making the customer satisfied. They‘ll tell a friend or a neighbor. That’s where I try to invest my resources. It’s about taking care of the customer so that they’ll turn around and tell people about the positive experience they had with our company.”
With two children and another one on the way, Lubert says the biggest job he has is the responsibility of being a parent. “Raising my children to become good, Christian adults comes first in everything I do. I spend as much time with the family as I can. I wouldn’t change it for the world.”
