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.
