Since 2001, Gridiron Guys Construction has built themselves into a large, very reputable business, with an emphasis on outstanding work and customer satisfaction. The Gridiron Guys (GIG) Construction Company was started by Brett Lonjak.
With the wide array of business experience our team offers, we are committed to quality workmanship and customer satisfaction.
At a very young age, Brett had taken on immense amounts of responsibility. While in college at Ohio Wesleyan University, Brett worked in the summers for residential roofing contractors and in the fall for the football squad. With great determination, he started GIG with help and business experience from his father Bill Sr. Soon after, Gridiron Guys LLC was operating in full force.
Bill Lonjak Sr.
Bill Lonjak Sr. received his Bachelors degree of science in mathematics at Ohio Northern University. He worked for a number of years teaching and coaching football. In 1982 he began his own manufacturing company. His business was very successful, and after 21 years he sold the business and reluctantly decided to retire. In 2002 Bill came out of retirement and became part owner of GIG with his oldest son, Brett.
Bill Lonjak Jr.
Bill Lonjak Jr. started working for GIG while he was in high school. Bill Jr. learned the trade very quickly and became the foreman of his own crew in a short amount of time. While still helping build the family business, he went on to college at The University of Akron to obtain his Bachelors degree in Construction Engineering. Bill then made the decision to put his training and education to work, and he’s been helping the Gridiron Guys team ever since. Bill is part owner of GIG Construction.
With the expanding business on the rise, the Gridiron Guys decided to hire Jeff Mohr, a long time family friend. Jeff spent his college summers working for the Gridiron Guys. He received a degree in Construction Management. Jeff now manages a crew and is in charge of much of Gridiron Guys roof and siding estimating.
