James Ball, Owner
James is a native Oregonian who was born in Portland and grew up in Bend. He is a US Army Veteran with 3 tours of duty in Afghanistan and worked at Intel as a financial analyst before he started ProLift Garage Doors. James was also a candidate for State Representative in House District 36 in the 2020 election. When he's not working, James likes to spend time with his wife Rebeca and their dog Charlie.
James' goal is to create a business that focuses on customer service and quality work at a competitive price.
Lawson Ritt, Lead Technician
Lawson is a native Michigander and has been with us since the beginning. Prior to working at ProLift, Lawson has experience in building maintenance and computer science.
Lawson decided he enjoys working with his hands more than sitting behind a desk and we're fortunate to have him!
When he's not repairing garage doors, Lawson enjoys cooking and playing video games.
Matthew Contreras, Technician
Matthew is native to Portland. When he isn't immaculately repairing doors, you can find him hiking, cooking, playing the piano, or making pipes. He speaks a fair bit of Spanish, and loves to share about pretty much anything he knows.
"My favorite part of the job is seeing the fresh results of my work. People spend so much time, effort, and money on their homes. I get thrilled when I know I have taken good care of someone's property, making them safer and warmer."
