Project Team

Allen Harris, President and NARI Certified Remodeler

Allen Harris has been involved in renovation work since the age of 12, when his father became his mentor in the remodeling business. His main motivation at ALH is delivering unique and personal designs to each invaluable client while maintaining customer satisfaction and loyalty by continuing his own education and professional growth in the remodeling industry.

Becky Harris, Managing Partner

Since meeting my husband Allen in June of 2008, I have been an avid fan and partner in ALH.

As my background comes from Grand Street Café and The National Golf Club, hospitality and client satisfaction is my focus. The remodeling industry has introduced me to a whole new field of individuals who know what they want. I am thrilled to be a part of this team.

My time away from ALH is spent with my twin daughters Madeline and Eleanor. I also enjoy the remodeling projects at our home working one on one with Allen.

Rob Dagley, Operations Manager and NARI Certified Remodeler

My Name is Rob Dagley and I’m from Excelsior Springs, Mo. I’m the Operations Manager @ ALH Home Renovations. The best definition for my job title @ ALH Home Renovations is, “Choreographer of organized chaos”. I believe that when a project is well organized and managed that it increases the customer’s satisfaction with their remodeling process. I have been in the remodeling industry for the past 20 years.

I like to hang out with my family while watching my boys grow up in the country in a small community. My favorite restaurant is a local Japanese Steak House, Kobe. I appreciate a lazy Sunday afternoon watching the Royals play a game or watching a NASCAR race while I catnap on the couch.

Jim Shearer, Operations Manager

Jim Shearer has a background in Business Management but left the corporate world to start a full-time career in carpentry in 2002, working in both residential and commercial remodeling. Prior to that he had performed carpentry work on the side and part-time for about 6 years. Jim had worked as a Lead Carpenter for ALH Home Renovations from July of 2012 to September of 2019, and in June of 2013 he received his designation as a Certified Lead Carpenter. He left ALH in 2019 to pursue other interests, but returned in 2022 as an Operations Manager/Project Manager. Jim enjoys remodeling for a variety of different reasons, but mostly because of the role he plays in helping clients attain their dream remodel. “ALH Home Renovations has always been a great fit for me. Our principles, ideals and expectations align almost perfectly.”

Jim is married with three grown children and enjoys spending his spare time hanging out with them.
