For more than two decades, the BRYJO team has worked to earn your trust as a general contractor for your home remodeling and roofing needs.

Raised in the Dallas Metroplex area, Owner/President Michael Harris possesses all of the qualities it takes to be BRYJO’s successful leader—integrity, honesty, commitment and drive.
Michael began his career in the roofing industry as an installer in 1986. In 1998, he became an estimator and project manager for a local general contractor who specialized in insurance losses. He obtained his adjusters license in 1998 and worked as a claims adjuster for two years with Travelers Insurance. While adjusting property claims, it became evident to Michael that there was a need in the market for quality contracting services with superior customer service. In 2000, he started BRYJO with a mission of taking care of his clients and providing exceptional services.
Michael coached youth soccer for 13 years and currently serves as an Adult Leader for youth at their church. Michael and Maria have four sons: Bryan, Joshua, Luke and Mark. A commonly-asked question, how did we get the name BRYJO? The company was started after the birth of the first two boys, hence the name “BRYJO.”
