Henry was known for his construction of hip roof barns, a roofing style in which all sides slope downwards. “Many of these barns are still being used today,” explained Ken Kreofsky, one of three grandsons involved in the business.
Now in its fourth generation, the Kreofsky family is expanding the business. Ken explained that the KBS staff continues to “carry on the Kreofsky tradition of quality and service with family-owned values.”
KBS Rochester hopes to be known as not only a lumberyard but as an information center, assisting contractors and other customers with making the right building choices. “We have a quality sales staff,” Ken said. “Customers can get quality information they need in order to make good decisions in regards to building products.”
The KBS team isn’t worried about the economy or the 2006 housing bubble. “The residential housing market is in recovery,” Ken said.
The team was also positive about the Rochester market: “It’s all about working closely with your customer base to help them remain successful. If they are successful, our business will be successful as well.”
KBS came to Rochester because of the customers. “For years, our customers have asked that we have a larger presence in Rochester,” Ken said.
In its fourth generation, the family-owned business is carrying on with tradition while adapting to an evolving market. KBS was one of the first lumberyards in the area to send outside sales teams to work directly with contractors.
The KBS team would like to invite Rochester area residents to check out the new business. “We are open and our staff is very knowledgeable,” Ken said. “We offer a good inventory of top quality building products for residential needs.”
