S & S Drywall was founded on March 23, 2006 by two brothers, Rocky Shemwell and Jacob Staggs. Rocky brought business knowledge and customer targets to the table. Jacob brought experience, quality, and industry contacts to the table. What started as a small company doing small jobs has grown to become one of the area’s largest Drywall & Plastering companies.
In August 2006 sales were picking up. They picked up so much that Jacob quit his full time job to work completely for his company.
In 2007 it didn’t take long for Jake and Rocky to realize they had to paint their own projects to ensure a top quality job for the customer. They invested in 3 spray rigs and a texture machine to give the customer not only a top quality job, but also gave the customer a more complete package. Also in 2007 they made a vow to invest profits back into the company and bought all up to date tools and equipment. They purchased their 2nd company van April of 2007, and in October 2007 Rocky quit his job at IKO Roofing Products to help Jacob run their own business on a day-to-day basis.
S & S Drywall became the only company certified to apply 100% acrylic coating to interior ceilings and walls in the Metro East area. US Textures issued the certification at the end of 2008.
The company launched their website in April 2008, and became a sponsor of the Builders Club in May, 2008. In November 2008, S & S Drywall became a member of the Home Builders Association.
S & S Drywall formed a new division in July of 2009. This new division was created to meet a need for a good, reliable plaster company in the Metro East area. Our plaster division offers a full service job that includes hanging, scraping, installing floor coverings, plastering, and cleaning up the job site once plastering is complete. We are very excited in being able to offer plaster ceilings and drywall walls, if requested.
In 2012 the company started offering power-washing services and high performance concrete protection services.
The local market started turning around in 2013, which provided S & S Drywall Inc. their highest sales volume since the start of their company. This better than expected year allowed S & S Drywall Inc. to update the company website and continue to invest in tools and machinery.
The company now employs 12 employees and is offering more services within the Drywall and Plaster industry than ever before.
