Jim Herr

President & Founder

Jim entered the construction world early, building a clubhouse in his basement as a kid. In 1972 when Hurricane Agnes flooded his hometown in upstate New York, Jim pitched in as a high school student working to clean up. For the next several years he worked with every crew that he could that dealt with the restoration. These experiences were the magical start to a lifetime of building. Jim learned remodels before new construction and credits this experience to why he’s excited and not intimated by big remodels. He’s not afraid of structural work. He moved 5 houses one summer after the flood and his first home build was in 1977.

In 1985 Jim moved his kids to Harrisonburg, VA, and he worked for VA Mennonite Retirement Community as a carpenter while attending Blue Ridge Community College. When his babysitter decided to build a house, Jim started subcontracting as a framer. In 1988, Jim got his Class A license to do any size project and commit to Herr & Co. full-time.

Since 1988, Jim has grown Herr & Co.’s portfolio of residential and commercial new construction and remodels, building on his reputation for integrity and fairness.
