Don Wimberly, lifetime resident of Dallas, former President of NARI (Greater Dallas) and owner of Vanguard Construction Company Incorporated, started his journey into the world of residential construction in 1977. He created Don Wimberly Custom Homes and began building custom homes in the North Dallas area.
In 1984, in an effort to expand market share and broaden the services offered by his company, Don formed Dimension Construction Company, with the primary goal of integrating remodeling and custom home building. Don always carried with him the belief that a person's home should be a refuge of relaxation, warmth and well being as well as something to take pride in, something to respect, and something that lasts a lifetime. He believed that by offering remodeling services to his clientele, he would be able to assist others in their pursuit of creating this type of atmosphere in their homes.
After enjoying success in the residential arena for many years, in 1997 Don was presented with another opportunity. He needed a company that would concentrate on residential construction, yet still be flexible enough to fulfill the needs of the company's growing commercial clientele. In 1997, Vanguard Construction Company Incorporated was created in response to this new demand. The company was established as a full service construction and design company, bringing over 35 years of building experience to the table. Vanguard has been servicing residential and commercial design and construction needs in the Dallas, Park Cities, North Dallas, Coppell, Irving, Plano, Carrollton, Addison, Farmers Branch and Richardson areas ever since.
The new millennium offers Vanguard Construction countless opportunities, tools and experiences. Vanguard Construction embraces this new age and utilizes these new and exciting tools to their fullest extent. We have taken the hammer and saw and coupled it with new digital tools such as mobile computer work stations, digital cameras and hand-held devices, allowing us to bring our office to your job site.
In addition to serving as president of NARI of Greater Dallas in 2008, Don currently serves as Chairman of the Ethics Committee of NARI. NARI is the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. The Dallas Chapter has approximately 260 members.
Don has a total of five (5) certifications: CR (Certified Remodeler, NARI), CGR (Certified Graduate Remodeler, HBA), CAPS (Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist, HBA), CGP (Certified Green Professional, HBA) and CLPR (Certified Lead Paint Renovator, EPA). All of these certifications are obtained through continuing education courses available in the building and remodeling industry as well as the EPA.
