Meet the Owners!

Brian Jr Girskis President/Owner
Hello, my name is JR Girskis President and owner of Suburban Construction. Suburban Construction, Inc. was founded in Bettendorf, Iowa, in 1985, by my father Brian Girskis.

Our family still owns and operates this thriving business and will for generations to come. My son Jack and daughter Kate, represent the third generation of ownership.

Prior to founding Suburban Construction, Inc., my father worked for one of the largest siding and window manufacturers in America (Associated Materials Inc).

I recall my father saying "Before starting Suburban Construction, my experience exposed me to the fact that there was a real need for a full-service, quality local window, siding, and door retailer in eastern Iowa and western Illinois."

Since my father started the company, we have completed over 29,500 jobs to date. Most people are aware we have high-quality products and do quality work at fair prices. And, we guarantee our workmanship for a lifetime. We truly care!

Our original office and showroom was located in downtown Bettendorf, Iowa, and served our needs for years. Due to tremendous growth, over the first ten years, we moved Suburban Construction to our current office and huge showroom in Davenport, Iowa in 1995.

We have the most comprehensive showroom of any retailer in our business between Chicago and Denver, and we constantly update our showroom to give our customers the best and most options in the industry. This is a reflection of what our customers said they wanted and our mission is to give customers what they want.

We have a beautiful showroom, with a focus on green and energy efficient products, which we urge everyone to stop by and enjoy.

Suburban Construction is staffed by one of the most knowledgeable and dedicated group of professionals in the industry. JR Girskis praises his staff by saying "We are all like one big family and truly want to do what is best for the customer. Our staff stays up to date on the latest products to help better serve you."

In addition to running one of the TOP 500 remodeling companies in the country, I enjoy spending time with my wife Kristine and my kids Jack and Kate, as well as spending time with my friends and extended family.

Darin Wilson Vice President/Owner

Hello, my name is Darin Wilson. I am the Vice President and co-owner of Suburban Construction Inc, and long time best friend of Brian JR Girskis.


I have been close with the Girskis family for over 20 years and have been in the business full time for over 11 years.


"Growing up” in this business can be tricky, but luckily I got to see how it should be done through Suburban Construction. Brian Girskis Sr. instill great knowledge in this trade along with a simple aspect of customer service. This is what truly sets Suburban apart from the rest.


I have received many certifications through the years with my time at Suburban. I competed and became certified in the "Therma Tru’s Certified Installation Training Program” with Therma Tru Doors Inc. in Butler Indiana. Earned a certificate of merit by completing the "Gutter Cap Training and Technical Seminar” at the Gutter Cap training facility in Naperville IL. I have successfully completed the Occupational Training and Supply of the "Lead Safety for Renovation, Repair, and Painting” program mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency. I became a certified siding install when I passed the VSI "Vinyl Siding Institute Certified Installer Program” in which is required through ASTMD4756 in which the manufacturer’s published installation instructions are up held to prevent voided manufacturer’s warranty on siding. With these certifications coupled with all of my product knowledge I have built the best resume I know how for our customers and home owners.


JR and I have worked hard to put everything we can back into the company in order to continue that focus on customer service as well as providing the best quality exterior remodeling products we can to our customers.


In my "spare” time I enjoy spending time with my son Griffin and hanging out at Disney World.


I feel so lucky to have fallen into a great company like Suburban Construction and am proud of the work we do here.
