Jeff Eckes-Co-Owner/CEO

Jeff began as a carpenter out of high school and spent his early years as a sound engineer for major rock bands in the 1980s and honed his skills as a master carpenter between tours. In the early 2000s Jeff was enjoying a successful career as a designer and builder of woodshops in the United States and in the Caribbean. However, the recession hit, and the building industry was decimated.

He soon found himself unemployed in an overcrowded field. He put signs up on telephone poles advertising his handyman skills, and before long, his client base grew, and LDR was born. LDR continues to grow, adding more employees each year and continually expanding its client base of happy and satisfied homeowners.
