After HS graduation in 1971, Dave entered the construction field by working for a small local home builder/cabinet maker. He then moved on to a larger residential and commercial construction company for seven years. While at that company Dave worked with the residential framing, trim and remodeling crews. He also spent a year working with their commercial concrete crew.

After seven years with that company, Dave was hired as a foreman for a building contractor in Oxford, PA. As foreman his duties included supervision of new home construction, additions, decks, kitchens, bathrooms, and all types of remodeling and painting. Dave spent 17 years at that company until it closed in 1994.

Faced with a decision, Dave prayed with his wife Faye, and decided the time was right to launch his own business. In February 1995, Dave White Building & Remodeling was born. At first Dave did the majority of work himself, sometimes enlisting the assistance of his three children. Eventually Dave's son Brad worked for the business whenever he could, starting at age 11. In 2008, at age 23, Brad became a full partner and the business was renamed Dave White & Son Building and Remodeling, LLC.

In addition to serving customers with quality craftsmanship, Dave White & Son exists to serve and glorify Jesus Christ. Whenever possible, Dave and Brad serve with missions teams to various parts of the United States and Central America, using their skills to improve people's lives.

Over the years, Dave White & Son has grown through "word of mouth" as they continually exceed customer's expectations. Today, Dave and Brad strive to maintain the two primary goals of the company: customer satisfaction and quality workmanship.
