When the owner of the company he worked for decided to retire he applied for a job with Valley Maintenance.
When asked why he would like to work in the Wood River Valley his reply was “Well, my grandfather would always say, just as we were topping Timmerman hill, “This is God’s country”, why wouldn’t I want to work here?”
He has several industry certifications which including water damage restoration, mold remediation, radon mitigation, lead paint practices and asbestos recognition.

Colby Jennings - Rebuild Specialist
Colby enjoys adventures, challenges of any degree, being outdoors and working with his hands. With a Machining and CNC Technology Degree, Colby has come to Valley Restoration from Coeur d’Alene, where he worked for a machine shop while delving into multiple areas of construction. Realizing he wanted to expand his horizons and learn more about construction and restoration, Colby was looking for job opportunities to further his experience and talents, when his parents ran across a job posting with Valley Restoration. Colby looked over the job description, expressing his interest in the position, as a Rebuild Specialist, and the company. It was then that his parents divulged that they knew the owners of the company and that they were in fact, old time friends with the Larsens, from when Colby was just a little tike. Surprised by this information, Colby soon learned more about his younger years when he had first lived in Hailey, when he ran amuck with his pal, Justin, so many years ago. Colby’s parents soon reconnected with their old friends the Larsens. And now, some twenty years later these two adventure buddies have been brought back together and the rest, one might say, truly is history!
