Brillo Home Improvements Celebrates 35 Years in Business



Brillo Home Improvements Celebrates 35 Years in Business
Remodeling firm has been revitalizing homes in the greater Milwaukee area since 1977
Milwaukee, WI -- May 17, 2012– Brillo Home Improvements Inc, an award winning, full service remodeling firm, headquartered on the Northwest side of Milwaukee, celebrates its thirty-fifth year anniversary on May 19th.  Since its incorporation on May 19, 1977, Brillo has revitalized thousands of homes in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Washington and Ozaukee counties.

Robert Quigley and two childhood friends started Brillo Roofing in 1977 after being approached by friends and family about re-roofing their homes.  “When my parents needed a new roof put on their house, they asked me if I could do it.  I recruited a couple of friends and we got the job done.  Next thing you know, my neighbors needed a new roof, their friends needed a new roof…and that’s how Brillo Roofing started”, says Quigley.
After a few years in business, the threesome began performing other exterior renovations such as siding, and exterior trim; window and door replacements followed shortly thereafter.  On June 6, 1980, the company changed names from Brillo Roofing to Brillo Home Improvements. 
When the trio began purchasing rental properties in the mid-80’s they began to perform interior renovations such as bathroom and kitchen remodels.  At about the same time, previous roofing clients were inquiring about interior renovations.  By 2000, they sold all of their rental properties and began growing the remodeling firm.
“I attribute our success to one thing: it has to be the people.  From our extremely loyal employees, to our clients, distributors and sub-contractors; it’s amazing how many long-term relationships and friendships we’ve established”, states Quigley.
