“I LOVE SEEING WHAT SOMEONE WOULD ABANDON BECOME SOMETHING NEW AND LOVED.”

Scott Merkel, Project Manager

Scott has been in the construction industry since 1998, where he got his start as a union tile setter. In 2009 he left the union and started his own tile installation company, New Life Tile and Stone. He was AB&K’s Master Tile Installer until late 2017 when a project management position opened up at the store.

In January of 2019, Scott earned a Certified Remodeling Project Manager (CRPM) certification from NARI.

His favorite part about working in the remodeling industry is seeing the dramatic change that can happen with something as simple as a new coat of paint or countertop and seeing how an entire living-space can get a new feel or purpose. In his words, “I love seeing what someone would abandon become new and loved.” Scott’s favorite part about being a project manager is the variation of the job. Every day is different and every project is unique.
