Inspiring Conversations with Kuawme Barksdale of KB Remodeling & Property Maintenance Kb

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kuawme Barksdale.  

Hi Kuawme, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
When I was 20 a guy named Tim Dickerson took a chance on me and gave me a job as a maintenance man. While under his supervision he taught me a lot of what I know. Everything from plumbing, HVAC, and electrical work. A few years down the line I was able to buy my own property and decided to remodel my bathroom myself. From there I started teaching myself how to do more. I’ve taught myself to do tile, flooring, framing, hanging cabinets, etc. After remodeling my bathroom, I posted a picture on social media and things took off. I then turned my hobby into a business and KB Remodeling & Property Maintenance was formed. 

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The road definitely has not been easy. One of the hardest things I had to learn was how to properly bid on a job/ create an estimate. It has also been a struggle to find dependable employees to help the business run smoothly. 

As you know, we’re big fans of KB Remodeling & Property Maintenance Kb. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
KB Remodeling is based out of Dayton Ohio we are known for our creativity when it comes to remodeling. We specialize in kitchens and bathrooms but we cover everything from commercial, additions, Decks, fencing you name it we can do it.

What am I most proud of? I would have to say how far I’ve brought KB Remodeling that never was intended to be a business I was just remodeling my bathroom and it turned into something that I love doing I can make a living off of and that I can have my kids with me while working teaching them what someone taught me.
