Jeff Kendall first met Kevin Gundry when he worked for Sears Contractor as an Estimator. Before that, he had graduated from CAL in 1981 with a degree in Economics. Kendall and Gundry broke away from the company and started Custom Exteriors in 1997. They worked out of Kendall’s wife’s flower shop Seifert’s for the first six months before moving to San Ramon, Dublin and – finally – Pleasanton. Both men handled all the estimates and projects for the first couple years, slowly but surely building a sales force that serviced the entire Bay Area.
As the co-owner, Jeff Kendall handles most of the job orders, paperwork (i.e. building permits, city permits, etc.), and job meetings with clients. Originally from Berkeley, CA, he likes to spend his free time playing golf and tennis, and traveling when he can.
Born in Sacramento, CA, Kevin Gundry is a proud 4th Generation Californian. Coming from a rich background – with his mother’s family from Spain and his father’s family from England (and a couple other countries) – Gundry took up Telecommunications in Chico State. After graduating in 1987, he started Custom Exteriors with co-owner Jeff Kendall 10 years later.
Happily married, Kevin is the father of 5 children, which includes 2 sets of twins. He enjoys spending time with his family. He also enjoys backpacking, camping, fishing, and attending Oakland A’s games. If given the chance, he would also love to travel more.
David Lopez has been in the Construction Industry for 36 years. Before becoming Custom Exteriors’ Sales Manager, he served 4 years in the Air Force as a Crew Chief on the A-10 Warthog. When he was younger, he would also travel to different places to participate in jet ski races, until a series of injuries forced him to stop. In his free time, Lopez enjoys playing sports and immersing himself in the outdoors – particularly through fishing.
A proud Mohawk Native American from upstate New York, Grayeagle Porter has been Custom Exteriors’ Senior Consultant for the past 18 years.

In fact, over the last 18 years, Porter has run and completed a whopping 5,600 projects in the Bay Area alone. He specializes in Marvin Wood Clad and Fiberglass Windows in particular. In his free time, he sings lead for Site6, a local 80’s dance band, favoring songs sung by vocal legends Frank Sinatra, Neil Diamond, and Dean Martin.
