Jake Vierzen started R-Value Homes in 2004, after 10 years at a Michigan based commercial concrete contractor, where he began as a laborer and quickly moved into the position of a poured wall foreman.
Jake was raised in a large family on a West Michigan dairy farm; where long hours were the norm, complaining was taboo, and both conservation of energy and stewardship of resources were a way of life. His experiences on the farm working with machinery and high performance engines would converge to change the path of his career! Growing up, he also enjoyed reading, so naturally he read a lot to keep up on industry knowledge, and follow trends. Once he heard of Insulating Concrete Forms, he immediately knew it was for him! Insulated Concrete Forms are high-performance, conservation, stewardship, durability, and concrete all wrapped into one!
