President, American Home Contractors of Virginia
Tyler Griffin grew up on a farm in rural Wisconsin. He got his start in home remodeling at age 13 when his family purchased a barn and turned it into a home, which sparked his love for transformation and remodeling.
His entrepreneurial passion dates to his childhood. As a teenager he started or helped start numerous businesses and non-profits. His ventures included custom woodworking and crafts, a lawn furniture business, a neighborhood kid mentoring ministry, a quarterly magazine he helped write and publish for youth, a Christian bookstore, and a relief cow-milking business he and his brother ran to allow local farmers to take vacations.
After high school Tyler worked in the construction industry, gaining experience in everything from building new homes to remodeling old homes and building additions.
He met his wife (Lily) in Panama while on a missions trip. Tyler and Lily are still involved in leading annual mission trips to Central America through the ministry they founded, Building Hope, which focuses on building homes and strengthening impoverished communities in partnership with local churches and missionaries.
In 2010 Tyler moved to inner city Baltimore where his family served with a team to plant and grow Freedom Church Baltimore. Tyler has served in various bi-vocational capacities as a lay leader, Executive Pastor/Elder, and still helps lead the global missions ministry at Freedom Church.
During his first 6 years in Baltimore Tyler helped build and grow a residential remodeling company, eventually leading the design-build division.
In 2017 Tyler and his family relocated to Fairfax, VA to start and lead American Home Contractors of Virginia, a contracting company focused on transforming home exteriors all over northern Virginia. AHC of VA was founded as a sister company to American Home Contractors Inc, an exterior remodeling company based in Southern MD since 1986.
In his “spare” time Tyler enjoys reading, writing, swimming, hiking, traveling and making memories with his wife and 3 sons.
