Get to Know Our Dedicated and Knowledgeable Team
With decades of combined experience and a shared passion for our craft, the Touchstone Remodelers team consistently delivers.
Ben Srigley, a licensed contractor in DC, Maryland, and Virginia, founded Touchstone Remodelers, LLC in 2011. He found his calling as a construction expert years earlier while working in his father’s cabinet shop. Having become a master cabinet builder, Ben applied his woodworking expertise to an extensive array of remodeling projects.
Ben next joined a general contractor’s team as a carpenter and gained exposure to all aspects of residential and light commercial construction, including concrete form work and slabs, wood and steel framing, drywall installation, painting, hardwood flooring installation, and custom interior and exterior trim creation and application. As foreman for another general contractor, Ben absorbed the knowledge of electrical, mechanical, and plumbing subcontracting and further developed his skills in large-project management, including scheduling and coordination of labor and materials.
By that time, his entrepreneurial instincts were chomping at the bit, and Ben founded his own construction company focused on residential construction projects. He later partnered with his father to found Srigley Construction, a firm specializing in custom home building, speculative homes, and light commercial projects.
Having honed his skills through these many years of experience, Ben leveraged his expertise in construction, remodeling, and project management to found Touchstone Remodelers. Since its inception, the firm has seen rapid growth and boasts a professional network that includes the finest subcontractors in the DC metropolitan area and leading designers and architects throughout the region.
In addition to leading a successful career, Ben enjoys with his wife an active life of traveling, boating, scuba diving, and weightlifting. He is also an instrument-rated, multi-engine commercial pilot who loves to fly his Mooney on the weekends and, on occasion, even works in time for an exhilarating flight manipulating the stick and rudder of an acrobatic tailwheel plane.
With a background and degree in Business Administration, Katherine Schea serves as Touchstone’s Office Manager. For the past ten years, she has perfected the art of providing effective administrative support through efficient bookkeeping, strategic marketing, and the tireless pursuit of client satisfaction.
For over eight years prior to joining Touchstone’s team, Katherine worked for a chimney sweep and installation company where she held roles as a Customer Relations Specialist, Assistant Bookkeeper, Office Trainer, and Executive Assistant to the CEO. She was so instrumental in that position that the company grew from having a mere 25 customers to well over 7,500 content, satisfied clients. Her secret? She has a passion for reaching and exceeding client expectations.
Katherine enjoys spending time with her husband, traveling, and working out. She is also something of a culinary wizard, and on days off there’s a good chance she’ll be found in the kitchen, busily cooking and baking up an assortment of delightful dishes.

A Journeyman Carpenter at Touchstone Remodelers, Pedro Fuentes has—after years of dedication and hard work—become a veritable jack of all trades (and master of many!) when it comes to handyman work.
For eight years Pedro has been developing his skills in the construction industry. Beginning with the construction of new homes, Pedro learned to lay the foundation of a house, assemble trusses, and build the structural framework from the ground up. After five years in that role, he transitioned to remodeling work in order to enhance and fine tune his carpentry skills, and for the past four years Pedro’s expertise has continued to expand. His toolbelt of skills now includes constructing walls, stairs, decks, and frames for roofs, as well as installing cabinets, windows, exterior and interior doors, laying tile, hard wood floors, and doing trim work, among other things.
In his spare time, Pedro enjoys swimming in natural bodies of waters such as rivers and the ocean. His hobbies include fishing, hunting, and playing soccer.
