About Justin

Prior to Justin Swanger joining the construction industry he served in the United States Navy where he learned that quality is by far the most important factor in doing any job. After being honorably discharged, Justin began working for numerous home improvement companies where he learned different aspects of his now extensive trade. 

In 1997 he returned to Pennsylvania where he began working for Forino, a well renowned Home Building Construction Company in the Berks County Area. While employed with Forino, Justin was able to refine his already vast skill set and add home framing, excavation, and concrete pouring to his resume. He was quickly promoted to Superintendent Assistant where he oversaw many employees and the completion of jobs. 

Upon leaving Forino, Justin worked for a number of smaller subcontractors such as NAMCO and Mike's Building and Remodeling before he made the decision to fulfill his dream of owning his own company. So in 2009 Top Knotch Construction was born, and Justin has never looked back.
