About Us

Every business has an origin story. Get to know the Carat crew and see why we started this amazing venture.

Almost 40 years in the making.

Ok – so not really 40 years in the making, but that’s how far back founders, Bobby and John go. Growing up next door to each other for nearly 13 years, these two built an unbreakable bond and friendship that can withstand just about anything.

Purpose

Carat Pressure Washing was built on a combined foundation of experience from our founders – spanning operations, sales, entrepreneurship, brand development, and customer service. Bobby and John had a vision to always work together over the years but never really landed on the right industry where they both could bring value and build opportunity. They wanted an industry that brought honest service to deserving people at a low cost but a high value. Thus, seeds were planted for Carat!

Passion

If there’s one thing Bobby and John know, it’s the value of hard work! Both come from very different walks of life but share a passion for working hard, operating with the highest integrity, and putting others first. Bobby’s passion for Carat is fueled by his experience in sales, operations, project management, and customer relations. John’s background lends itself to out-of-the-box thinking, ingenuity, customer service, and a knack for really good aesthetics. Their passion for Carat is an understatement!

Perspective

The 9-to-5 grind has never been desirable for the Carat team. Both founders are small business owners who enjoy the freedom of entrepreneurship. Bringing perspective into Carat came down to two things: A desire to serve each other and a desire for adventure. Bobby and John enjoy running their businesses but their desire to build something together finally came to life and you’ll quickly learn what happens when you combine lifelong trust with true grit and determination!

Most of my career has been spent working for others and I knew it was time for a change. I’ve worked in the roofing industry for 8 years in sales and operations and have helped build, scale, and manage regional operations for a large vendor in the education industry for nearly 10 years. These experiences brought me to the realization that I was ready to be my own boss and start my own company.

John and I grew up together since we were kids and have been through thick and thin together. We come from very different business backgrounds but our talents and work experiences positions us for a lot of growth with Carat!

Co-Founder

I’ve spent most of my professional career building brands, designing cutting-edge graphics, building custom websites, and bringing my clients’ ideas to life. It’s still something I’m passionate about but Bobby and I have always wanted to combine our skills and build something together.

I saw this as a perfect opportunity to leverage my creative abilities and expertise to build an approachable, trusting, and timeless brand that we could both be proud of. The best part? We get to show the world that you don’t have to live in a box… If life calls for a change of pace, shift gears, take a risk, and try something new.
