Darrin Preston from Certitude Home Improvements

Title: Production Manager - Siding and Windows

Darrin Preston from Certitude Home Improvements

After serving our country in the Marines and then as a police officer in Cecil County, Maryland, Darrin Preston returned home to join his father’s residential construction company.  Darrin spent about six years learning the trade before moving to Pennsylvania to start his own residential and commercial construction company.  For 18 years, Darrin’s business had a “one call does it all” mentality, doing everything from roofing, windows, and siding to kitchen and bath remodeling, basement renovation, decks, landscaping, and building houses from the ground up.

Darrin found success through his hard work, professional attitude and attention to detail.  When Darrin joined Certitude in 2017, he brought his extensive knowledge of the construction industry, with a passion for helping homeowners achieve their dream homes.

When he’s not on the phone helping customers, Darrin loves to spend time with his family, go body surfing at the beach, play a round of golf, or just sit back in the sun and enjoy a nice cold glass of sweet tea!  Next up on his bucket list is to have his feet in the Atlantic Ocean to watch the sunrise and then on the same day to have his feet in the Pacific Ocean while the sun sets.
