Everett L. Abrams Jr., founder of Triangle Alliance, has passionately devoted over two decades cultivating his trade and developing his entrepreneurial skills. The trials and tribulations endured and overcome throughout his lengthy career, coupled with Abrams’ success and determination, has earned his reputation as an industry leader and dubbed him the nickname, “The Wizard of Wood.”
Abrams’ educational foundation in business management instilled within him the necessary tools and knowledge to commence multiple, successful business ventures. He fortified his ambition and strengthened his career by working positions in corporate training, multi-unit management, and operations manager. Abrams began laying the framework for his future profession by first engaging in prominent and recognizable careers within the restaurant industry, often soliciting sole responsibility for major companies such as PepsiCo and Kenny Rogers Roasters.
Abrams began his career in 1992, delving into the pressure washing industry. Almost immediately, realizing his passion laid in wood restoration, a prominent sector within the pressure washing industry, he envisioned a future in exterior wood restoration, wherein his unwavering trade skills would surpass all others in the field.
Abrams pursued his dream first by thoroughly absorbing any and all information that could propel his career and kick start possible opportunities. He studied every morsel of accessible information, including industry related books and manuals in conjunction with attending numerous seminars. The relentless pursuit of his dreams enabled Abrams’ introduction to key industry leaders, and eventually earned hi m a seat on the Joint Coatings Committee of the Forest Products Laboratory, an organization that creates the standards for the wood industry and is headed under the Department of Agriculture. As the very first contractor ever to serve, Abrams dutifully performed on the committee for three years. As a PWNA executive committee member, all across the country from 2003 until 2009, he subsisted as a validated wood instructor, certifying contractors in wood restoration.
Abrams is considered the principal pioneer in exterior wood restoration. Before Abrams delved into this venture, exterior wood restoration was not industry specific regarding educational focus and explicit material intended to teach contractors this genre of wood restoration was not available.
As well, Abrams created Deck Restoration Plus, a franchise concept headquartered in Shamong, Burlington County, exclusively founded and designed by Abrams, and maintained for the provision of educational services directed at contractors all across the Unites States. Additionally, Abrams also operates Abrams Farms Plus, Abrams Plus Consulting LLC, and Alliance Training and Education Services LLC.
Abrams solidified the foundation into which Deck Restoration Plus would root itself, eventually carving a niche within the trade that created a new level of standards for industry workers to learn from. The core values and unprecedented craftsmanship Abrams instilled within the company, grew in reputation, thus allowing Deck Restoration Plus to snake its roots so deeply within its vocation, it became as structurally defining to the wood industry, as was wood to the company.
Since the beginning of this decade, Abrams has contributed countless hours and monetary donations in hopes of further educating fellow contractors and continuing to elevate industry standards through roundtable events, touring the country instructing PWNA Boot Camps, and teaching classes and seminars nationwide.
Even now in 2011, Abrams and his Deck Restoration Plus franchise continue to grow and are widely considered leading authorities in the industry. Deck Restoration Plus continues evolving, and now offers a line of quality cleaning and restoration chemicals, as well as wood sealers. These products were created exclusively by Abrams and a professional chemist. They are proven better than the leading brands, remaining second to none in the industry.
Abrams and his companies’ achievements are numerous and can be traced through various online sources and assorted print magazines. Abrams has been highlighted in Celebrate South Jersey Magazine and has also contributed numerous articles to the national magazine, Cleaner Times. Abrams was featured on the cover of the March/April 2007 issue of Professional Deck Builder Magazine within which he retained the issue’s feature article.
Abrams continues to public articles both online and in hard copy, for different publications committed to his trade. He has co-written manuals used to nationally teach and certify Wood Restoration Contractors, among other trade-related issues. Because of his work, experience, and writings, Abrams is often solicited by contractors and manufactures from across the country for advice and recommendations.
Recently, Abrams was recognized to instruct a seminar for the North American Deck and Railing Association (NADRA) on proper methods of wood restoration for deck builders and coatings contractors, at their annual Deck Expo 2006. At Deck Expo 2007 Everett was asked to instruct the first two day educational course by NADRA for Wood Restoration.
