Clifford Stoops


In 2001, growing up in Church Hill, TN Clifford Stoops was first introduced to construction at the age of fifteen. While working with family friend Bill Clark. His first construction experience was helping Bill build custom homes. He worked on everything from framing, roofing and drywall to the finishing touches.


In early 2005, Clifford then went on to work for Armstrong Construction where he worked on commercial projects. He started working on commercial buildings where he mastered his skills in reading blue prints, framing and drywall. Clifford worked for Armstrong Construction for three years. In this time frame he worked on two schools and a hospital from the ground up.


At the end of 2007, Clifford began working with Finishing Touches construction in which he continued working on residential properties. By the age of 23 he was a expert in the construction trade. His accomplishments ranged from complete bathroom and kitchen remodels, along with elaborate master bedrooms. Clifford worked on all aspects of residential construction completing a number of flooring jobs in which he worked with hardwood, laminate, tile and marble flooring. His home exterior experience includes installing plank siding, vinyl siding, windows and doors.


In early 2010, Clifford started working for Hickman construction. This is the company in which he learned a variety of roof installation techniques. Clifford worked with standing seam, traditional metal roofing, three tab shingles, and architural shingles.


In 2012, Clifford started working as the director of construction for Sun Tan City. Clifford was responsible for managing all construction projects from initial demo to the final C of O. He opened a total of ten salons which were built on a five week deadline.
