Brian Sineath
President

Growing up, Brian worked for his dad Tommy during summers and after school. He used his carpentry skills to build custom homes while working his way through college. After earning a B.S. in Industrial/ Construction Technology (and meeting Allyson!) from Appalachian State University, he worked at a large production builder and over nine years, learned the ins and outs of all aspects of construction management, from superintendent to division construction manager in large cities throughout the southeast.

Brian’s goal, his family’s goal, is to understand each client’s needs so well that Sineath Construction delivers a product that absolutely thrills clients beyond anything they could have imagined.
