The Story of E&E

A Family Legacy

E&E Contracting owners picture

The story of E&E General Contracting started with a passion to work hard with our carpenter skills and serve our homeowner family with integrity. After growing up on a dairy farm in a family of twelve children, John Esh began working for a local construction company at age 16. After growing in leadership and experience, John and a close friend started their own roofing business when they were 20 years old. 

They installed asphalt roofing together for a number of years before John started E&E Siding in 1993. For the next two decades, John built a committed customer base in southeastern PA by providing excellent craftsmanship with integrity and an attitude of service. During this time, the primary focus of E&E Siding was installing Siding, Windows, and exterior trim with a small work crew. 

At age twelve and thirteen, John’s two oldest sons began spending time on the job during the summer to do cleanup as well as learning the basic tricks of the trade. By age sixteen, Michael and Matthew were both working full-time with their father and a few employees.

E&E Expands its Horizons

From 2010 to 2015 the company began slowly expanding its team as well as offering a broader spectrum of exterior services. During this time, Michael and Matt began sharing a lot of the management responsibilities within the company. During 2016, John began talking about handing the company’s ownership and management fully to Michael and Matt. 

At the beginning of 2017, they took on their new roles for the next season of the business. As the natural visionary on the team, Matt Esh became the General Manager. He focuses on managing the Sales and Office Teams. 

Michael Esh is the detailed thinker on the team and is the Field Manager for the company. He focuses on growing and organizing the details within the company as well as working on our current Remodel Projects when possible. 

John Esh continued as the lead Salesman/Estimator until the fall of 2018 when he and his youngest son Jason began pursuing their dream of working together in Real Estate. The Esh family considers it a tremendous blessing to be able to grow up working together. John has set a great example of truly serving those we work for!

Michael and Matt are excited about growing the company by building a wonderful Business Team and establishing a foundational set of values that will help us provide a fantastic contractor experience for years to come. At the beginning of 2019, the company name was changed to E&E General Contracting to more fully reflect the services we provide.
