October 1984, Damon Builders was born of Jared Damon’s appreciation of the building trade, in Texas. At the time, business included some cabinet work and construction projects. After a short year in Texas, Jared moved his family and the business back to his roots in Maine where his brother, Jon, joined as a partner.
With Jon's experience building high-rise apartment buildings in New York, and Jared’s focus on the finer details and craftsmanship, the two grew the company at a rapid pace to crews of 20 or more!
Though successful beyond their imaginations, they couldn't escape the feeling that the heart of the business had gotten away from them. So, in the mid-90's, the brothers took a long, hard look at the original values that factored into their decision to move their families back to rural Maine. It was at that moment, they made the pivotal decision to scale back. For the next two decades the brothers focused on building high value homes and quality renovations with an unparalleled attention and focus to detail.
In 2006, Jared’s brother, Jon, retired from the business. Later that year, Jared's son, Jonathan, joined Damon Builders. Later, in 2014, Jared's daughter, Lauren, also came aboard to contribute to and support the values of Damon Builders.
