Jim’s professional story and the story of Schneider Custom Builders are one and the same as SCB is truly built in the image of its owner. Jim started the business in 1984 primarily focusing on single phase contracting. He was proficient handling projects such as roofing, siding, decking and framing since he had grown up working for his father, a successful home builder.
In 1986, framing became his focus as Jim built a 10 crew framing business, a phase of construction that is still one of the pillars of SCB today. In 1992 he built his first full home and the professional growth for Jim and his business continued to evolve. In 2003, after successfully building many homes in the Northeast, Jim and his wife Sue moved both the business and their family to Virginia. SCB has since served all of Southeastern Virginia including the Eastern Shore, Williamsburg, Norfolk, Virginia Beach and the Peninsula.
For many years, SCB has worked with architects and designers to build many beautiful vacation and retirement homes along the Chesapeake Bay on the quaint and beautiful Eastern Shore. Jim enjoys an excellent reputation among the Shore locals and continues to build there today.
Jim is a very personable, down to earth guy. An excellent communicator, especially on the listening side, his clients enjoy a close working relationship with him and his team. It is not unusual for those relationships to continue long after the projects are complete. He is a true perfectionist and his reputation reflects that. Jim and SCB are truly one and the same.
