ABOUT

Brady J. Newman

I'm a life-long resident of the Sacramento - Davis area, with family ties that are deeply rooted in the community. My wife is also a life-long Sacramento resident.  We raised our children here, and they are raising our grandchildren here. My father is a retired Folsom-Cordova teacher and my mother is a retired UCDMC medical secretary. My mother-in-law was also a local teacher, and my father-in-law was a genuine hero that fought in WWII, Korea, & Viet Nam. 

"As one of the leading roof beam dry rot repair specialists in the Sacramento area, The Beam Guy is right at home under the eaves of mid-century modern and ranch style homes."

I learned my craft the old-fashioned way, from the bottom up. I started as a teenager, digging ditches and hauling supplies. From there, I worked my way into the roofing and rough framing trades. Through the years, I was trained in carpentry, drywall, painting, plumbing, electrical, and steel fabrication. Eventually, I spent several years working for a local steel fabricator as a project coordinator, where I worked on portions of the Lincoln Plaza and Sacramento Light-Rail projects. In 1990, I began working on roof beams under a now retired general contractor. Finally, I went to a trade a school and earned my General Building Contractor's License in 1995. I've specialized in all-things-roof-beam ever since, even receiving a patent in 2002 for inventing a tool accessory that made working at heights (i.e., roof beam work) safer. The name "The Beam Guy" was bestowed on me by a beam restoration client who began referring me to friends as The Beam Guy. For the rest of the story, read "So About That Name  . . ."

My Personal Building Code:

  •  It's not just a job, it's a house. It's not just a house, it's a home -- your home.

  •  I am a guest at your home and I behave like one, i.e., I clean up after myself, arrive and leave at respectable hours, etc.

  •  I only do and say things I would do in front of my mother.

  •  My appearance is such that your mother wouldn't disapprove.

  •  I return all of your calls and emails.

  •  I am on time.

  •  You hired me, you get me. I do all of my own work.

  •  I am not just a builder, I am a craftsman.
