About Us

The founding partners, Chris Shedeck and Brent Quinn, were highly successful NVR Project Managers in the early 2000’s, where they learned firsthand why the drywall and paint application is of utmost importance to the overall success of a finished home.

Construction Applicators Metro is built upon four basic principles:

Unquestioned Reliability

We recognize builders do not have the liberty to lose days under construction because the carrying costs to do so are tremendous. As one of the largest drywall and paint contractors in the region, servicing all of Northern Virginia and a few surrounding counties, our extensive and well-qualified labor force ensures deadlines are always met.

Quality Control

It is not, nor ever will be, our builders’ responsibility to ensure quality workmanship. The Quality Control Team at Construction Applicators Metro performs periodic inspections throughout the course of construction. Our proactive approach in identifying application issues ensures the home is adequately prepared for builder inspection prior to homeowner occupancy.

Superior Workmanship

In today’s highly competitive market, it is the attention to detail and quality of the finished product that distinguishes one builder from the next. The lasting impression left by our team will strengthen your reputation as one of the best builders in the industry. In fact, it is this foundational component to our business model that has seen our customer base grow from four builders in 2008 to over thirty in 2021!

Effective Communication

The Project Managers with Construction Applicators Metro are equipped with personal iPads and cell phones to accommodate our builders’ preferred method of communicating. Also, our Project Managers are trained in various online scheduling software, including Co-Construct, Supply Pro, Hyphen Solutions, and Builder Trend, as many of our builders are using this platform to build their homes. Communication is critical. And we are prepared to adapt accordingly.

Jonathan Smith

Owner Brush Arbor
Construction Applicators Metro is one of a few subs that we have used since the inception of Brush Arbor.  This fact says it all…but let me say more.  Chris and Brent have built hundreds of houses so they understand the challenges we face on our side as the builder.  I don’t have to have many of the conversations that I have with others, to get them on the same page with us.  More than their understanding of the builder side, these are just good, honest, hard working guys that take the long view on our working relationship.  Their crews respect our site, show up when scheduled, and take responsibility for their time and actions.  I can genuinely say that Con App Metro has had a sizable part in making Brush Arbor successful.  I consider them invaluable to our customer experience, which is what drives our success.
