Location: Milwaukee, WI
My expertise at Wenger is flat roofing. I lay insulation with screws and plates then start to Rhino Bond. In my free time I enjoy hunting and fishing. I like to hang out with my friends on the weekends and enjoy going on camping trips with my family.
I don’t have an expertise because I do it all! I do everything from flat roofing to finishing metal. Outside of work I like playing sports and being with my family.
I had some experience in construction and wanted to see what Wenger Roofing and Sheet Metal was about. After working here, I like that this company takes cares of their employees. They make you work hard and if you want to continue to move up the ladder and become foreman you can. This is all based on merit pay. This is called Wenger Worker Academy and it has competitive pay. It is a team environment, every one works hard and wants to improve. I never would have thought I would be working for a roofing company before I started at Wenger, but now I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
As a construction worker, I finish metal work, soffit, fascia and cut hardie panels. My hobbies include building motorcycles, street racing and cars. I am a landlord and have three rental properties which keeps me busy. I also enjoy spending time with my family.
It has been a little over a year since I started as a sheet metal and siding worker with Wenger Work Academy, they offer a great working environment with many opportunities and employees are valued for their work. The whole experience has been great it’s helped me achieve my goals with a positive attitude and high opportunities to develop leadership skills. I am happy to be a part of this organization and continue to strive for WWA.
I am married and I have two dogs. I’ve been with Wenger for over 10 years. I’ve watched them grow into a large commercial company and I’m seeing changes for the employees every year that benefit them. Our growth potential is unlimited and I look forward to all the opportunities in the future.
I am currently a sider for Wenger. On my free time I like to bum around on eBay, hunt, play my guitar and go to church.
The foundation of a great business is built upon the vision of its leaders and forged with the compassion and integrity of its employees. In this regard Wenger is second to none. A family business in every sense of the word. When you join the Wenger team you join the Wenger family.
Over the years I have had the opportunity to work at numerous construction companies and looking back I can’t help but feel like they were mere stepping stones ultimately guiding and preparing me for a future and family with Wenger construction.
I’m no longer just working at another “job”. With Wenger I feel motivated and encouraged to set the bar higher in life. We are rewarded for being proactive and maintaining that positive mindset.
This was truly realized through being introduced to, and involved in, a unique concept known as the Wenger Worker Academy.
The Wenger Worker Academy’s core fundamentals are attitude, accountability, teamwork and leadership. The motto is “BE THE HAMMER” and WWA sets the nail for you, but it’s up to you to drive it home.
The Wenger Worker Academy helps to give you a sense of accomplishment by setting individual goals and rewarding us for hitting the mark. If you work hard, have a good attitude and give it 110% then you are bound for a great future here. It’s up to you. You can make a good wage for doing a good job or make an outstanding wage for doing an outstanding job.
One of the great parts of WWA is that small positive things you do, do not go unnoticed. There is an R +/- system that is used for finding individual strengths and weaknesses. The “R” stands for RECOGNITION. It is refreshing to know that you are being recognized for small positive things you do and if you are having some issues they will take the time to address and work on those things with you to help you make your way to that outstanding wage.
The bottom line is Wenger is a company that focuses a large part on the individual aspects of each of its employees and provides every opportunity and also outlines a personal plan for you to excel and realize your potential. There is no ceiling to your success here. So with your best foot forward the sky is the limit.
It’s cool to think that I’m just one of many workers of the many crews that makes up the Wenger family and we all share in the same vision.
We are the hammers that are forging Wenger’s future!
I am skilled at installing siding and sheet metal products. I enjoy hunting, fishing and anything outdoors. I’m very handy in creating my own projects from wood. I am a husband and father. I’m always willing to help anyone in need and am the type of guy that would give you the shirt off my back if need be. I am a very hard worker and am always willing to work extra to support my family.
I install chimney flashings, metal roofs, side and shingle buildings. I don’t consider myself an expert at anything because there is always room to learn. When I’m not working and I have the time, I try to get on my bike, fish, or draw.
My construction expertise is flat roofing. I teach the young and new employees how to lay ISO and TPO or rubber roofing. I love the outdoors. My favorite things to do are carp shooting, fishing and hunting.
I have been a flat roofer at Wenger for five years. I also have experience in building pole barns which I did with my family for 1 ½ years. I enjoy hunting, fishing, the woods, water and pretty much anything to do with the outdoors.
Hi my name is Justin Schienebeck, and I have worked at Wenger for 4 ½ years. I started out as just a summer helper while I was attending college at UW Oshkosh. I graduated with a degree in physical education, but enjoyed working for this company so much that I decided to stay. When I first started, the flat roofing crew consisted of three full time employees plus two or three summer helpers. This last summer, we had a crew of about 14 fulltime employees.
If you have looked into our Wenger Worker Academy Program, I can first handedly tell you that it works. I started here with absolutely no knowledge of roofing or carpentry. I came in as green as they get. Within the last 4 ½ years I have made my way from laborer, through apprentice, to a lead man, and am now one of the two foreman for our flat roofing division. Having a review every six months with the possibility of an increase in pay not only motivates us to be better employees, but it also gives the opportunity to really show our value as workers.
The group of guys I’m able to work with also makes my job that much better. The company went through some hard and miserable times when I first started. Crew moral wasn’t always at its peak out in the field. Going to work every day now is much more satisfying and enjoyable. The systems we have down with the guys, all the upgrades in equipment we use, and the knowledge we have all gained in the last couple years all contribute to a better quality product and more fun at work. The flat roofing crew has earned the top 5% in quality award through Carlisle the past two years, and that’s something we all take a lot of pride in.
I am a sheet metal foreman. I have attended the annual ABC conference (SuperCon) in Wisconsin Dells for the past two years. I recently finished a basic drafting class in AutoCad in Cleveland, WI. I am competent in scaffold setup and operation and am certified for forklift and aerial lift use. I am a certified Nichiha, Hardie, and Carlisle installer. I am married and have two boys and a dog. I enjoy camping, kayaking and cabinet making. I especially enjoy working with the great people at Wenger Construction.
Working for Wenger Construction was a great career move for me. Their slogan is “A family business dedicated to excellence” and we are treated like family too.
I have tried to take every opportunity that has been given to me. I’ve learned a tremendous amount in my four years with the company, both mentally and with the products and materials we use on site.
I’ve worked my way up since I began employment with Wenger Construction and I know the sky is the limit.
My construction expertise is in framing, shingle roofing, flat roofing, siding, metal trim, soffit and fascia and cedar siding and roofing. Outside of work I enjoy playing pool, riding horses and volunteering for Search & Rescue. I take pride in being a family man.
I am a Service Manager for Wenger’s Service Team. I have a wife, son and three dogs. I like snowboarding, snowmobiling, fishing with my son, going out to eat, going to the movies, shopping with my wife and working hard to provide for my family. I also enjoy working for a company that treats you like family not just another number.
I have over 10 years of building/construction experience in the surrounding Campbellsport Area and was looking for a change. I was really looking for employment in a small construction company around the Campbellsport area, where my family and I reside. Finding Wenger Roofing and Sheet Metal has been a great fit that allows me home every night with my family. I enjoy the challenge at Wengers, and the variety of work I do. I find it very rewarding. I am the leader of the installation of architectural sheet metal, composite panels, fiber cement siding and roofing.
My wife Andrea and I live in Campbellsport with our 5 kids Heidi, Andrew, Natalie, Riley and Parker. I enjoy spending time with my family, hunting, camping and going to watch my kids at dance, baseball, etc.

As I began my journey on the path to success it all started in a small town of Campbellsport Wisconsin. I met with a small company called Wenger Construction, Inc. who had large dreams and even bigger goals. I was an adolescent man at a pivotal age with a heavy burden on my shoulders of a growing family. I knew I needed to find a company that would hold the longevity and share the vision that I’ve seen. I’ve strived my entire life to be as successful as possible, this relationship with Wenger has given me the ability to watch my vision grow in front of my eyes. this has made me become a great man and given my family a happy life.
Taking this journey one step at a time, one page at a time, one tank of fuel at a time, has opened my heart and soul to the possibilities that the construction industry offers. Wenger worker Academy has grown from the ground up and is showing that it not only works, but it is producing success in the field. I have gone from a green laborer with Big Dreams to a Field Communication Manager and Project Specialist who strives for Success every second and every moment of the day. With this company by my side, and by our side, I know that the impossible is possible, not only do we have great resources in the office and in the field this company is a family business and we handle our issues and struggles like a strong family should.
My roofing career started out about 10 years ago, I was given the opportunity by a union roofing company to start an entry level roofing position. I took the job not thinking the path that it would take me. The first year of roofing was hard, over the years it got easier, with the knowledge being taught to me. I have always had the drive to want more. Then I came across Wenger Roofing and Sheet Metal, I decided to send in an application to see what opportunities were there.
My current company at this time was doing well, but I wanted more. I wanted to be running a crew. The company I was at, being union, it would have been a long time before I would get there. They offered me the job and I started soon after. Right away I noticed that they were not a normal company. They wanted more, just like me, they were always looking for ways to be on the cutting edge. After a couple of months into my job, they gave me the opportunity to run a crew and I jumped on it.
They had started Wenger Worker Academy, a merit based pay system. When first started it caught my attention, this is what union roofing was. You started at the low pay and over time and knowledge you moved up on the scale. Here is where it differs WWA you earn it, union does pay increase on an apprentice program once you hit the next level of hours of installing you would get a raise, WWA you earn it. I see great things coming with this system. An entry level person can come in with little to no knowledge and know that if they want to make X amount of dollars, what they need to be doing to get there. WWA eliminates just handing out a raise every year like some companies have been doing forever. Wenger wants and is willing to pay the workers a high wage that they deserve and earn. If you work hard you should be rewarded for it, not just because you have been working there many years. I feel this helps everyone strive to give their all, and knowing that the guy next to you is earning their pay. I am seeing WWA working on a daily basis. This gives people a visual goal that they can drive for.
Wenger is a family dedicated company that makes everyone feel like we are one big family. I am coming up on my 4 year mark with Wenger, I am very happy/proud of the company I work for.
I am married to Jake, the president of the company, and we have three amazing kids – Noah 17, Maizie 15 & Greyson 9. I am a graduate of UW Oshkosh with a degree in business/finance and have been working full time as Wenger’s Financial Manager since 2013. I am into all things numbers (invoicing, weekly payroll, month end financials, etc.) and get really excited when all of my spreadsheets match to the penny. In my free time I enjoy reading, hanging out with my family, going to all of my kids’ sporting events (Which is a full time job in itself!), eating out and because I LOVE food so much and exercising.
I am a 25-year veteran in the construction industry – specializing in Roofing, Siding and Sheet Metal Systems. I have great organizational skills and am extremely detail oriented. My hard work and dedication have propelled me from field worker to an integral part of the management team. I pride myself in being “self-taught,” and continually take initiative to advance my knowledge of the industry.
I have a loving wife and am blessed with four beautiful daughters. If I am not at a volleyball tournament, gymnastics meet or at a dance competition, I’m at home either relaxing in my recliner or working on the next house project. I truly enjoy being at home spending time with my family. If you do want to get me out of the house, you better have fishing in mind!
I married Jennifer in 2007 and we have three children, Sophia Mae 7 years old Evelyn Nancy 5 years old and Miles Lee 2 years old.
I graduated Campbellsport High School in 1998. While in high school I attended a school to work program where I would spend the second half of the day attending an Horace Mann High School learning about construction trades.
During summers in high school I worked for Lindsley construction framing houses. I started working the summer after graduation for Wenger Construction on the steep slope crew. The crew back then consisted of John Wenger the owner/dad and two younger sons and myself. Over the years he advanced to sheet metal and flat roofing.
Since starting at Wenger over 15 years ago, I have groomed my knowledge and skill set to advance to the level of Forman and then to Project Manager and Production Team Leader. Over the years I have attended many classes and courses to better my knowledge to lead my fellow Wenger Roofing and Sheet Metal team members.
I enjoy spending time outside as much as possible, from hunting trophy whitetails and turkey on the family farms to bass fishing with my Dad.
I also enjoy taking the family out in my ’71 Chevelle that my Dad and I restored after buying it in pieces when I was 16.
As an estimator for Wenger Roofing & Sheet Metal, I collect and analyze data in order to estimate the time, money, materials, and labor required to perform roofing, siding, sheet metal, and several other types of work. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and son, restoring classic cars and trucks, fixing up my old farmhouse and barn, riding my Harley, dirt bike, and ATV, fishing, and woodworking.
My job as Business Development has many aspects. I set-up and work the local home shows talking with GC, property managers, and on-site maintenance people. I am in charge of all our residential opportunities that comes in. This consists of asphalt shingles, cedar shakes and standing seem roofs and siding. I quote many commercial projects that have roofing and siding products. From Carlisle flat rubber EPDM & TPO, to siding products such as Hardie, LP and Nichiha. But the biggest part of my job is finding new customers. I put on “luncheons” for potential clients. I get a chance to showcase how Wenger Roofing and Sheet Metal has set the bar as an elite roofing and siding business and how we are able to give all our customers, existing and new, the best product and workmanship.
Outside of work I have two kids. My son Michael is 19 and my daughter Mercedes is 16. I spend time going to all their sporting events. I enjoy going to Brewer games, hanging with friends, working out, and evening bonfires in the summer. I play softball and golf. I coach 7th & 8th grade youth football in my home town of Sheboygan.
I joined the Wenger Team in 2012, coming with an extensive history in the construction field with onsite experience as well as project cost development. I serve as a senior project estimator, developing roofing and siding proposal from the budget numbers to final costs. I work with customers to find how to best serve the needs of the client. I have been involved in small residential projects to multi-story commercial structures.
Outside the work environment I like spending time with my family and riding my Harley, hunting, fishing, camping and doing woodworking projects.
