About Our Company
Brian Clark, the owner of Clark Builders,Inc., was born and raised in Lompoc, Ca. by his lovely parents, Don and Lana Clark. He was born deaf, but his parents raised him to believe - by trusting in God, working hard and persevering, his deafness would not be a handicap or hindrance to his lifestyle. Brian worked hard as a young boy delivering the Lompoc Record for several years. His customers from those days STILL recognize him and are so happy when they see him in public. He then went on to work for Napa Auto Parts for Mr. Gary Bremmer. After 4 yrs. of keeping the Napa inventory organized and delivering parts to different auto shops in town - he began working for his uncle, Tom King, who owned The Service Connection and Country Hearth here in Lompoc. While working for uncle Tom, he worked side by side with his father who also worked for Tom. It was while working side by side with his father for nearly 14 years that he gained his knowledge and love for the building trade. While working for Uncle Tom, Brian got married and began raising a family, all while continuing to learn the building trade. Together, the three of them worked in many, many homes, from Nipomo to Santa Barbara as well into the valley, they would remodel kitchens & bathrooms. They would add onto homes or remodel them for updating. Sometimes they would start a project/job and have to learn along the way. They persevered. They are craftsman, armed with knowledge and heart! They take on each and every job, no matter the size, with meticulous care and attention to detail. They've met A LOT of great families and made many long time acquaintances along the way. The three of them together made an AWESOME team!
One day while Uncle Tom was estimating a potential project, he began feeling symptoms of heart trouble. He went to the emergency room in Santa Maria where he would end up with a quadruple heart bypass several days later. There would be many months of recovery and TAKING IT EASY for Uncle Tom. Brian would have to look elsewhere for work.
Brian had always wanted to own his own construction company, but that required having a California State Contractors license, and the testing to earn such a license is grueling for a “hearing” person much less a deaf person like Brian who struggles with technical vocabulary. But, Brian is PERSEVERANT! He took the test - earned his license - and in 2012 opened his company, Clark Builders. He is still working side by side with his father, Don, and now his son, Brandon has joined the team. Brian will now be the teacher and show Brandon the ropes and try to pass on all he has learned from his father. Together, they STILL make an AWESOME team!
P.S. Uncle Tom is doing great... He is now the BBQ guru, and is busy selling a grilling system HE INVENTED - “Buckaroo Chunk Wood Grills”. Check him out on the web and/or IG. His BBQ’s are AMAZING!!!
