Rob Vassallo, Principal (CV Link)
If you mention that Rob Vassallo builds or repairs homes, you might get a quick clarification: “I own a building performance engineering firm; we make buildings perform.”From building barns in western Minnesota to becoming a recognized leader in the building engineering industry, Rob's journey has been exceptional.
Rob began his home and building construction career working for Delbert Philips Construction. “The skills that I learned from Delbert were irreplaceable!” Rob then went on to found AllStar Construction which specialized in roofing, remodeling, siding, greenhouses and additions. He and his team employed old school craftsmanship to maintain the classic legacy of some of St. Paul’s most celebrated historic mansions.
Rob began to realize that things like rooftop ice dams, building creaking, wood rot, sticking doors, window condensation, mildew and more are correctible engineering issues in need of expert solutions – even in modern buildings. After 38 years, Rob sold AllStar to the young men who helped him build it, and founded Complete Building Solutions. He and his team specialize in “building performance engineering.” Rob has even invented new tools and products to maximize his results.
Despite his hectic schedule, Rob donates his time, expertise, and resources to help improve area schools and churches. He also does goodwill work, bringing families and kids to refreshing retreats at his South Dakota lodge. And whenever he finds a sliver of spare time, Rob is a “severe fisherman.” Luckily for the fish, Rob is a very busy guy.
