Custom Drywall’s owner Will Carlson started his business out of his family owned grocery store 50 years ago. His operations originally occupied the back of Lu’s Grocery. Will started out performing small residential projects with just taping. Once he expanded into the commercial drywall industry he hired Ray Kiminski to help supervise the man power and Dar Barron as his secretary to handle the day to day. Over the years Custom Drywall has added to the services they provide to not only drywall systems, but also metal stud framing systems, thermal insulation, lath and plaster, exterior finish systems, spray applied fireproofing, weather barrier systems, and scaffolding systems. Today the company employs the best field staff from Carpenters, Tapers, Plasterers, Lathers, Laborers and Tenders.
Custom Drywall began construction of their new office in 2002. Incidentally the property was part of a redevelopment project of the same neighborhood he grew up in. At the front entryway of Custom Drywall’s office is one of the many “Lucy” characters that was part of the St. Paul Peanut Characters statues. At Lucy’s feet is a bag of groceries, displaying “Lu’s Groceries”.
Custom Drywall has evolved from a small business into a thriving company with a reputation for excellence. This company has been built with a commitment to exceptional quality, value engineering service, loyalty to our employees and a strong partnership with our valued customers.
