About the Owner

The Kangas family moved to Southern Maryland from Cape Canaveral, Florida when Joe was four years old. Even at an early age Joe was enterprising; he and a friend started a crabbing business while they were still in middle school. After graduating from St. Mary’s Ryken High School, Joe decided to turn his interest in carpentry and woodwork into a career. Over the next five years, he was blessed to work for and along side some of Southern Maryland ’s most talented professionals while he learned the construction/home improvement trade. As an apprentice carpenter he was exposed to all aspects of home construction and renovation. Long hours and hard work made him a Jack of all Trades and Master of Many… he learned framing, cabinetry, trim and finish carpentry, plumbing, electrical, sheet rock, tile and floor installation, painting, and bath and kitchen renovation. He learned to have an eye for detail and the importance of listening to  the needs of  property owners he was working for. It was also during this time that Joe discovered a love for historic restoration   He worked on a three year historic restoration project: gutting and renovating a house that was built in the 1700’s, a slave quarters, and numerous out-buildings to historic preservation standards. After the restoration was complete, for the next fourteen years, Joe served as Property Manager for this historic property and two additional out-of-state homes for the owner; handling all aspects of maintenance, repair, and renovations. During this time, Joe honed his skills by continuing to do other home improvement jobs and  in 1997 he decided to form his own company, Kangas Workhands, Inc. The name has recently been changed to Kangas Home Improvements as a part of a new branding campaign.
