Zachary had an interest in construction starting at age 8. He was homeschooled, which allowed him to pursue his passion from a young age. Zachary started working for a local contractor (Anything Construction) at age 13. He was tasked first with sweeping floors and quickly worked his way up to sweeping ceilings.
After doing everything from drop ceilings in Manhattan skyscrapers, to exterior painting on historic homes in New Jersey, Zachary purchased his first house. It was a horrible old house that showed him just how bad a renovation can go when it's done poorly. Zachary started Dettmore Home Improvements with the hope of making an uncompromising company that puts craftsmanship first and tools second and writing bios third.
