Hi I’m Susan Dyas! On behalf of my business partners Joe Minardo and Bob Dyas (who is also my husband!), we thank you for visiting our website! We created Epic Group Ohio from our combined desire to deliver high end custom finishes that are typical of large scale remodelers, but with a personalized method that focuses on the most important aspect of the entire process…you! We don’t have standard specifications or try to fit you into a typical mold to forcibly expedite the process so we can rush off to the next project…we take the time on the front end to figure out the most important aspects of your project, what is driving your need for a renovation or addition, and create a process that will focus on those deliverables so that your current home will finally give you the space and functionality you’ve only dreamed of. And while it’s not a prerequisite to be our new BFF’s, we certainly are blessed that we’ve created some long-lasting friendships with clients from our years in business and wouldn’t want it any other way!
Here’s a little more about us. Joe and his wife Amy are high school sweethearts from Cleveland that both came to THE Ohio State University, ended up staying and raised two fabulous kids in Dublin. With a long history in the remodeling business, Joe spent a large part of his career specializing hardscapes, landscape design and outdoor kitchens & living spaces. They are now empty nesters and faithful Browns and Buckeye fans for life!
Bob is one of eight kids who grew up in Upper Arlington who headed west to become a Colorado State University Ram and ski the gorgeous mountains of Colorado. Coming back to Columbus after graduation, Bob married and started a family in Dublin. A CPA, he started his career as an accountant for his family’s commercial construction company. Bob began working hands-on in home building industry, going on to start his own company and has spent the last 25 years as a home builder and remodeler.
I grew up on a tobacco farm in Woodford County, KY, (yes, as in Woodford Reserve Bourbon!) am a forever faithful UK Wildcat and worked for a large homebuilder in Lexington before relocating to Dublin, OH in the late 90’s. Bob and I met while both working with a large custom home builder, married and Bob continued to build custom homes and complete large scale renovations while I ran the office and showroom for a large local granite supplier. I’ve had the pleasure of helping him continue to raise his four amazing kids to adulthood and we now have our first grand baby who has brought a whole new level of joy to our lives!
In 2010 we formed what is now a well-respected renovation company that we couldn’t be more proud of. While not ones for the limelight or glory, Epic Group Ohio has a longstanding reputation of exceeding our customers’ expectations through the delivery of quality workmanship and seamless client communications. We’ve managed to stay small, so that we can stay focused. The only employee in our company is Brad Kriesch, a well-known and respected master trim carpenter who brought his creativity and unmatched eye for detail to our projects for close to 15 years. Now he brings this much appreciated skill to his role as Project Manager. Along with the best suppliers and trades in the industry, we have developed an unparalleled Team that will take your project from beginning…to EPIC!
