Bedrock Construction, the premier exterior building materials company in Northeast Ohio, announces their contribution to the construction work for an episode of the popular ABC reality show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. It was recently filmed in Boardman, Ohio and is scheduled to air on ABC Sunday, December 4th at 8pm.

"Bedrock Construction was founded on the principles of integrity and trust, and when we had the chance to play such a key role in this Extreme Makeover project, we felt it was a perfect fit with our company’s values," said Dave Sommers, President of Bedrock Construction. "We try to make a difference in all of our customers’ lives, but the impact you can make with something like this project is simply amazing."

Bedrock was the only contractor from Stark or Summit County to participate in this exciting event. Their crew of 20 craftsmen arrived at the build site, joining 225 other craftspeople. The Bedrock crew created a cultured brick fireplace and columns in the home’s open-plan living room and a cultured brick retaining wall to complement the landscaping. They installed cultured brick on the front of the house to showcase the porch. The crew worked intensely for three days, alternating periods of frantic activity with pauses, to allow other contractors’ teams to handle their elements of the construction process.

The homeowner, Jeff Novak, is a special education teacher and the father of three young girls- Zoey, 6; Harley, 2; and Presley, 5 months. His wife, Jackie, died of a pulmonary embolism on Mother’s Day, two weeks after Presley’s birth. She was a fan of the show, and before her death, she told her husband she wanted to appear on it some day.

Bedrock Construction is located in Uniontown, Ohio, about 20 minutes from Akron, one hour from Cleveland, and two hours from Pittsburgh. They are committed to providing complete exterior solutions using manufactured stone and siding materials. In addition to their original construction work, they also offer remodeling packages featuring their manufactured stone products.
