We Hire The Best People

Shad's Custom Countertops
Shad Hall
President and Owner

Was born in Derry NH and graduated from Windham High School in 1989. Shad joined the United States Army January 15, 1991 as an Armored Crewman. After returning from Active Duty and joining the Army Reserve Shad focused on building his countertop business which he started in March of 1997. In 1999, the business had grown enough that Shad began hiring employees and moved the shop to Windham. By 2003, Shad had purchased his own building in order to have the space to keep up with his growing business. After two expansions at our current location on Collins Pond Road in Windham, Shad’s has come a long way from a one-man shop!

Shad has a CDL with school bus endorsement and spends a lot of his spare time volunteering, coaching and driving in the community. So much so, that in 2014 he was recognized by the Town Council as Gray’s Volunteer of the Year and his wife, Lorri received the same honor in 2019!

Shad, his wife Lorri and their son Jake enjoy skiing/snowmobiling in the winter and running, biking, water skiing and boating in the summer and hanging with family and friends.
