Jonathan Kehm joined Glenbrook Building Supply in early 2021, and Glenbrook is happy to have him on the team. “His portfolio of projects immediately displayed a depth of knowledge beyond that of a typical pro-dealer sales representative,” says Scott Jarchow, General Manager of Glenbrook.  

That’s because Jonathan was a project architect and general contractor before pursuing his passion for sourcing specialty products for unique projects. Jonathan’s background allows him to listen to his customers’ needs, provide solutions to those needs (involving architects, engineers, and vendors), then procure the products. He’s even procured products across the globe for some of his customers.  

Public Sector  

His public sector project experience includes schools, park pavilions, park shelters, and public works facilities. All tend to have wood incorporated into the design. Jonathan can source all types of appearance-grade wood of any species, such as thermally modified wood – known for its beauty, longevity, and environmentally friendly wood treatment process. Other specialty items include glulams and laminated decking.

  • A boardwalk of any size.

Luxury Homes 

Years of sourcing unique materials through commercial project experience have allowed Jonathan to keep your luxury dream home ideas within reach. Jonathan can bid, source, and manage multiple types of building materials, no matter how large or exotic. To speed up the build, Glenbrook’s sister company, EdgeBuilder, is chosen for “panelizing” your homes framing, with pre-framed walls, to be erected on-site by the framing crew. Windows, doors, siding, decking, trim, and roofing of any architectural era can be achieved, and Jonathan will help you pick the perfect products to make your picturesque home truly yours.  

How can Jonathan help you? 

Whether you are an architect, owner, or contractor, the supply side of the project is Jonathan’s specialty.  He’s comfortable in specification sections 06 (wood, plastics, composites), 07 (roofing, waterproofing, insulation), and 08 (windows and doors).  He can assist in all phases, from product selection, to budgeting, bidding, and installation.  No project is too big or too small, and he would enjoy talking to you today about your build!
