Although Above and Beyond LLC, a full-service contractor with its offices at 524 Lincoln Street in Lewiston, has its roots in commercial roofing, its repertoire of available services has grown to include nearly all aspects of commercial and residential construction and remodeling including garages and additions, windows and doors, kitchens and bathrooms, siding, gutters and decks, as well as roofs.

Both Glenn Therrien and Frank Robitaille, owners of Above and Beyond LLC, were born and raised in Lewiston and, prior to formally joining forces as Above and Beyond, the pair had worked side by side on various job sites for more than 20 years.

During the winter months, with lots of work to be done both in and out of doors, Above and Beyond employs between 18 and 25 people. During the summer months, that number grows to around 30, and the employees of Above and Beyond consider themselves a team.

“It starts with Kim answering the phone,” said Therrien, “then our customers work hand in hand with our estimators, and then with our various crews. By the time most projects are finished, the customer has had the opportunity to work with 10 to 15 of our employees.

From office staff to foremen, and estimators to team leaders and supervisors, Above and Beyond has longevity on their side.

“We’ve been very fortunate,” said Therrien, “in the last five years, we haven’t lost any key employees.”

Perhaps “fortune” has nothing to do with it.

“If you want to get good work out of your people,” said Robitaille, “you have to treat them right.”

Above and Beyond provides its team with ample opportunities to develop their skills.

“We do a lot of cross training,” explained Robitaille. “Our roofers are able to do carpentry, and vice versa.”

With respect to experience and expertise, “We’re a very diverse group,” added Therrien, “and we bring a lot of knowledge to every job site.”

At Above and Beyond they know that this attention to training, as well as employee longevity, are the building blocks for a consistently good product.

According to Therrien, the company strives to employ a great team of people who achieve the goals the company sets for itself. “This, in turn, helps Above and Beyond to achieve the goals set by their customers.”

Although Above and Beyond subs out a few specific jobs, such as excavation, foundation, electrical and plumbing work, they have known each of their subcontractors for many years, and work with them exclusively.

“They’re part of the Above and Beyond family,” said Therrien, “and we don’t bounce around.”

According to Robitaille, whether the reference is to key employees or subcontractors, “Our customers know that the guy they worked with last year is the same guy that they’ll work with this year.”

Above and Beyond works closely with architects and engineers, but can also do “design build,” where a customer comes to them with ideas and they work closely with them, on a more personal level, to help make their vision become a reality.

What it boils down to is this: “We work hard for our customers,” said Therrien, “and we take pride in ourselves and in the consistent quality of the work that we do.”

Are you considering a bathroom or kitchen remodel? Do you need an in-law apartment, an office suite or a new roof, even in the dead of winter?

“We can do it all,” said Therrien, making Above and Beyond a great place to begin, and finish.
