Paul Roberson considers himself very lucky to have been born and spent his whole life here in Alabaster.

“When I was growing up Alabaster was much smaller with the small town atmosphere, seemed like everyone knew each other,” he said.

Playing football and basketball at Thompson High School, a group of close friends and school activities kept Roberson busy.

“Nothing like running out under those ‘Friday night lights,'” says Roberson.

After graduating high school in 1989, Roberson attended Northwest Alabama College and then the University of Montevallo.

By 1996, Roberson owned an exterior remodeling company, Roberson Vinyl Exteriors.

“I sell the job and oversee each project from beginning to end, everything for my customers,” he said.

In Roberson’s business, they do anything pertaining to maintenance free products for the exterior of your home.

Included are siding, windows, doors, gutters, gutter guards, shutters, hand railing and columns.

They also do dry in under decking systems with heavy duty metal roofing.

Recently, they have begun carrying “no mortar” fire pits made of granite.

They do screening in of porches and turning screen porches into ventable sunrooms.

Wife Lisa is from Paducah, Kentucky, and is a pharmacist.

Roberson met Lisa when she moved here to go to pharmacy school at Samford University.

After she graduated she attended nuclear medical training at Ohio State University for eight weeks. The night she returned Roberson proposed.

Son Wesley is 11 and plays football and basketball. Daughter Taylor is 8, plays softball and is a member of the Girl Scouts.

Both children are honor students. The Robersons attend St. Thomas Church in Montevallo.

Roberson’s biggest “hobby” or pastime is youth coaching. He has coached six years of youth basketball and football and four years of youth softball.

The Robersons are Alabama fans and attend many of the local games.

Also, Roberson says, “We really enjoy activities at Lake Logan Martin. Might retire there someday after we see our kids grow up, graduate and achieve a successful life of their own. My hopes are to keep a strong business and see my kids happy and successful.”
