Founded in 1988, Blanc & Bailey is a residential and commercial construction company, handling new construction to simple renovations. They will build your dream home, renovate and enhance your existing house, restore the integrity of your historic structure, or construct a commercial facility. They also handle remediation projects where there was water damage, mildew, poor insulation, and more. Their focus is to deliver high-quality materials and services, at a fair price, while the materials are chosen to fit the unique needs of each individual project and client, “balancing beauty and lasting quality within all budgets.”
Owner Matt Blanc was passionate about construction at an early age. “I had an interest in it when I was young,” Blanc explained, “I worked in building and construction during the summer growing up.” Later he attended Plymouth State University for business, and returned to the area working for a local contractor. Around 1988 the economy took a fall, which is when Blanc partnered with Rod Bailey.
Their first year in business, Blanc and Bailey “did around $65,000 in sales,” Blanc stated, “and now they gross near $6 million.” Though Bailey left the company in 1995, Blanc continued running the company on his own.
Blanc and Bailey Construction now reaches a 60-mile radius in southern New Hampshire and Vermont. They cover east to the Lake Sunapee region; west to Ludlow, Londonderry, and Rutland; north to Hanover and Lebanon; and south to Keene. Primarily in Vermont, the company also serves many touring areas such as Mount Snow, Stratton, and Okemo, including second homeowners and locals. Blanc also plans to open a new office in Machester, Vt. on May 1, which will include a kitchen and bath showroom by winter.
Their employees are fully trained and qualified in the latest systems, equipment, materials, and installation techniques, to bring you the finest products and services. They “manage projects very well,” Blanc said. All resources are in house, and “we use a lot of local people wherever we go.” Subcontracting for local projects, while “sending in a project manager, superintendent, and foreman to manage the overall flow on the site,” and see it to completion.
Their crews are working on six to eight projects at any given time, six days a week.
