Journey of Jerry O’Neal: From Carnival Barker to Siding Innovator

At Continental Siding, we take pride in our exceptional journey, one that is deeply intertwined with the life and vision of our founder, Jerry O’Neal. From his early days as a Carnival Barker to his role as a pioneer in the siding industry, Jerry’s story is a testament to the power of passion and unwavering dedication to excellence.

Carnival Beginnings

Our remarkable journey commences with Jerry’s early life, where he achieved the impressive feat of becoming the highest-paid carnival narker at a mere six years old. This early success revealed his innate ability to captivate and engage people, setting the stage for his future as a distinguished business leader. While it may have been an unconventional beginning, it laid the foundation for the passion and showmanship that would define his career.

A Leap Into Siding

In the 1980s, Jerry made a significant transition by venturing into the siding business. His vision was clear: to establish new standards of excellence within the industry. Taking the lead in developing products that exceeded industry standards, he set the stage for a transformation. His unwavering commitment to quality and performance led to the creation of a cutting-edge testing facility—an impressive 111,000-square-foot building dedicated to innovation and research. This facility became the epicenter of our relentless pursuit to create siding products that endure the test of time.

Passion for Performance

What truly distinguishes Jerry is his relentless passion for making siding perform better. He firmly believes that siding is more than a mere exterior covering for homes; it is an indispensable element that safeguards and enhances a property. This core belief has been the driving force not only behind him but also the entire team, which is committed to producing high-quality siding products renowned for their unmatched performance and durability.

Employee Dedication

Jerry’s commitment to excellence extends to our entire Continental Siding family. He recognizes that the unwavering dedication and hard work of our team are the cornerstones of our success. Our team shares his passion for delivering remarkable results to our customers, consistently providing top-tier service that goes above and beyond.

Honors and Recognition

Jerry’s relentless pursuit of excellence has garnered well-deserved recognition. Continental Siding’s dedication to quality and innovation has led us to earn the prestigious title of “Manufacturer of the Year.” This award is a testament to our unwavering commitment to creating superior siding products that have made a significant impact on the industry.

From his carnival barker beginnings to becoming a leading figure in the siding industry, Jerry’s journey is an inspiration to us all. His dedication to making siding perform better has not only shaped our business but has also left an indelible mark on the home improvement industry as a whole. With a steadfast focus on quality, innovation, and unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction, Jerry and our team at Continental Siding continue to shine as leaders in our field.
