Photos by Valorie Chisholm in PROFILES IN BUSINESS RBS MASONRY & TILE Samantha P. Hawthorne Staff Writer shawthorne@plumasnews.corn When touring the Almanor Basin, it is hard to miss the superbly crafted homes built throughout the area. The pride in homeownership tak- en is evident by the well-man- icured lawns and unique ad ditions seen throughout many homes in the area. Without a skilled contrac- tor, however, many of these quality homes would be far less appealing. What's more, finding a contractor that spe- cializes in the service you are looking for can often be a daunting task. With a combined experi- ence of more than 45 years, RBS Masonry & Tile co-own ers Richard Scrogin and Randy Gutman provide quali ty service you can count on. Before starting his own business, Scrogin worked un- der his brother for 10 years. Approximately 20 years ago, he established RBS Masonry in Yuba City. When he was first starting out, Scrogin specialized solely in masonry work. In 2003, he moved his business to the Basin, where eventually he met up with tile expert Gutman and they decided to join forces. Next year will mark RBS' 10th year of service in Plumas and Lassen counties. To celebrate the milestone, Scrogin says he is taking his parents to Las Vegas. Gutman has been specializ- ing in tile work for more than 30 years, working under the name KR Gutman Co. in Chico before making his way to the Basin and merging withRBS. The two amigos met in 2009 when they were hired to RBS Masonry & Tile co-owner Richard Scrogin is hard at work building a stone fireplace for this custom home on Big Springs Road in Lake Almanor in April 2010. commercial work.
