About Our Crew
Kent Scharf – Married to Debbi Taylor Scharf in 1974. Kent and Debbi have two sons, Andrew and AJ. Four wonderful grandchildren, Alyssa, Taylor, Andrew (Drew), and Makenzie. Of course, the extended family of daughter-in-law, Kristin Scharf, (AJ’s wife) and Amy Roberts (Andy’s significant-other).
Kent started out at a very early age (9) working on a farm near Millstadt, IL. In the early 70’s he began working in a local body shop learning the trade. He worked there until 1982 when he went to work for Jim Taylor, Inc. (owned by Debbi’s father, Jim Taylor) as an inventory control manager. He worked up through the ranks and became superintendent. From 2005 through 2006, he briefly moved to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to run a roofing division for Taylor Roofing.
Even though Kent was working full time at one location or another, Kent managed to build his first home with his wife, Debbi, in 1976 working evenings and weekends. Their dream was always to have a little acreage, so again, in 2000, Kent and Debbi built another home on 2-1/2 acres, where they still reside.
In 2006, Kent and Debbi decided to start a handyman service and thus opened Scharf Building Services. With the quality of service and knowledge, Scharf Building Services business began to grow exponentially.
He is hoping for more great things to continue to grow the business as well as taking care of the small things that our customers still need.
Debbi Scharf – Married to Kent Scharf in 1974. Kent and Debbi have two sons, Andrew and AJ. Four wonderful grandchildren, Alyssa, Taylor, Andrew (Drew), and Makenzie. Of course, the extended family of daughter-in-law, Kristin Scharf (AJ’s wife) and Amy Roberts (Andy’s significant-other).
Debbi began working for Jim Taylor, Inc. (formerly Biebel Roofing Company) in 1970 for her father, Jim Taylor. Over the years, she had many hats (including hard hats) to wear while working for her father. Starting out, Debbi worked in the office doing all of the typing and general office work. Yes, on a regular type-writer with carbon paper? She also did some time-estimating on the roofs, operated a crane, helped install a few EPDM roofing systems and helped with the inventory control. Debbi would also help her dad measure roofing systems and make drawings accordingly to expedite the bidding process. Debbi ended her stay with Taylor Roofing as office manager.
After her father’s passing in 2000, Debbi became part owner of Jim Taylor, Inc., with two of her sisters, Catherine Taylor Yank and Sherri Reno. While they are still at the roofing company, Debbi, along with Kent, left and started Scharf Building Services in 2006.
Debbi takes care of all of the bookkeeping and marketing for Scharf Building Services and can also help on minor things on projects.

He now works as carpenter foreman and can bring a lot of wonderful skills and expertise to all of our projects.
Andy Scharf – Andy has two children, Alyssa and Drew (Andy Jr), and significant other, Amy Roberts. Andy enjoys hunting and loves to have fun with his DJ business (A&A Music Productions) that he has for the evenings and weekends.
Andy began working for Scharf Building Services, LLC, in 2007. Andy previously worked for Taylor Roofing as a journeyman roofer and also did a good deal of sheet metal work for the company.

Brad came to work for Scharf Building Services, LLC in 2012. He worked for his brother, Bryan, plastering for 15 years. Brad also ran a bobcat for a number of years which other than learning how SBS works on a daily basis, this will come in handy if SBS is ever to expand.
