Our History

Charles Hays and his two sons, Mark and Brian, opened the doors at Hays & Sons in June 1982. The three-person team quickly acquired a reputation for integrity and quality workmanship in Indianapolis and its surrounding counties. As owner operators, Charles, Mark and Brian specialized in the construction and disaster recovery markets with a primary focus on structural insurance repairs. Charles Hays retired in 1998, while Mark and Brian continue to grow the company by focusing on the customer.
