Gene Firth, President
From the time he was a young child, Gene would take apart everything in the house to figure out how it works. From small appliances to television sets, he just always liked the inner workings. As a child he once designed and built a hang glider out of an old tent and "allowed" his brother Randy to be the first one to try it out by jumping off the top of the house. Although that invention didn't work out so well for him, or his brother Randy, the fascination for designing and building never left him. He never liked hiring someone to build or repair something for him, he would prefer to try and do it himself. All of this is why the remodeling/building came so natural for him.
Working in the construction industry for more than 30 years, Gene has applied the values of Honesty and Integrity to business, living by the mantra “always try to do the right thing.”
In the early days of his career, working in the real estate and residential construction industry, Gene saw the need in our community to change the perception of many homeowner’s in regard to construction workers, and to provide quality people and service second to none.
This ultimately led Gene and his brother Randy to establish Total Home Improvements.
Gene is heavily invested in the community having served on several church boards. When not in the office there’s a good chance you’ll find Gene either with his family, or with a fishing rod, or both.

Randy Firth, Vice President
Randy is one of the owners of Total Home Improvements, which he and his brother Gene opened in 1991. He works with the sales team, which currently operate out of a separate location than the main office. A new office is planned, in which time everything will operate from that new location. He has always enjoyed the sales end of the business and for many years acted as the only salesman for the company. He still goes on a few sales appointments, but mostly supports the sales team. He likes interacting with people and possesses excellent verbal and written skills.
His interests include football,racing, fishing and cars. He is a die hard Denver Broncos fan and John Elway is his all time favorite player. His NASCAR driver is Kevin Harvick, who he follows closely and has been to many races. He grew up on the water, with many of his family members being watermen. He enjoys fishing, boating and pretty much anything to do with the water. He likes car shows and being around all types of cars. Muscle cars are probably his favorite, but he also enjoys original antique cars as well as new styles of cars with the ever changing technology.
He has a passion for politics and tries to keep up with current events surrounding politics as well as other issues. He has a grown daughter who lives in the area and operates a barn with 16 horses. Although he doesn't ride at all, he enjoys spending time with her and at some of the horse shows. He is a dog lover and consider his 14 pound Pekingese/Chihuahua, who he calls Denver, his baby boy. Denver of course because of his love for the Denver Broncos. He likes to take him everywhere possible, but struggles with his constant shedding. Randy is from Poquoson, but resides in York County, where he has lived in the same house for over 20 years.
