Willie Bady History

Picture of Willi Bady It all started when I was 12 years old in West Philadelphia at 231 North Paxon Street, when I got tired of climbing over a tub set my Mom bought from Sears and Roebucks. I asked my Mom when she was going to have it installed and she said she did not have enough money. I said, “Mom, I can install it.” She said, “ok.” So, I demo’d the whole bathroom. We only had one bathroom for nine brothers and sisters…what was my Mom thinking? Obviously, my Mother really wanted that set installed. After many crying days and many runs to the closest hardware store, I installed it (I wish I had pictures).

From 10th to 12th grade, I took Carpentry Technology at West Philadelphia High School and won first place city-wide in Carpentry Technology, competing against all schools. I received a scholarship and went to Daryl Trade School, graduated in 1977 and started working in the cabinet shop doing custom bars.

From there I got a job working for Amtrak in their cabinets shop, while also studying woodworking and furniture at night. I studied 3 years under Lenard Hellinger, a German furniture maker and studied 4 years under Joe Rocco at Amtrak cabinet shop. I left there and started the company WB Drywall Inc. doing drywall hanging and finishing. That company became union and did large union projects under Ernest Bock and Sons as a General Contractor. I then joined Interior Finish Contractors Association and started doing commercial interiors. Being a union company, we took on a large project that was under bid and put me out of business. I then started working as a Traveling Superintendent for retail planning and construction for 10 years. Stores I built include Bernie Robbins, Children’s Place, Ashley Stewart, The Gap and more. When I left there, I started The Renaissance Company Inc., High End Home Renovations, Developers and Construction Managers.

The craftsmanship, timeliness and expertise Mr. Bady displayed along with that of his crew simplified what has been a grueling process for many of my friends and left me with a modern home. Everyone who visits my home is interested in contracting with him. The end product surpassed my expectation. I especially appreciate his ability to stick to timelines and work within the budget while simultaneously providing unexpected finishing touches.
