As a family they love to spend time together doing various activities. Their favorite is being on their boat tubing, fishing and swimming. Ryan also enjoys supporting the Minnesota Vikings and Wild.
Ryan started out in the exterior remodeling industry as a siding laborer in 1995 learning as much as he could before moving on to installing roofs. After he had the confidence to branch out on his own he applied for a small loan to get his own equipment and start subcontracting. One of Ryan’s close friends needed his roof, siding and windows replaced. Ryan did the siding, but decided to hire and manage the roofing and window crews to get the job done in a timely manner. After the job was completed, Ryan came to the realization that he liked the managerial side of the business more than the installation side. Around that same time, Ryan met his wife Rebecca whose brother was also in the industry and had a vast knowledge of both sides as well. The two decided to put their heads together and start their own company. They began as a team of two and as they acquired more work they started hiring employees one by one to ensure one on one training. Once they accumulated a good size team they started taking on more work than usual and gained a highly respectable reputation.
After 10 years in business together, Ryan bought out his brother in law and has been the sole owner for over 3 years. Ryan recently made an expansion to NexGen by starting a commercial division that includes; associations, multifamily homes, hotels and new construction commercial contracting. He is also proud to announce that NexGen is now a second generation family owned company with Ryan’s oldest son, Cody, joining the business this year.
