Showing Our Appreciation to a True Hero

It is not every day you come across true heroism and perseverance. U.S. Army Veteran, SFC Aaron M. Causey is the definition of both.

Pushing Through Adversities

SFC Causey was severely injured in Afghanistan in September 2011. He suffered the loss of both legs and lost several of his fingers among other wounds. As a result of his injuries, Aaron was unable to return home immediately. He underwent two years of rehabilitation at Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland. His wife, Kat, remained at his side through it all, and their unwavering love for one another during such a difficult time is truly an inspiration.

Aaron’s story is personal to our team as he is the brother-in-law to our own Renee Causey. Although the last five years have been incredibly challenging, they have also been rewarding. Aaron and Kat welcomed the arrival of their daughter, AJ, who turns three in January.

Striving for New Beginnings

The couple proudly bought land in The Highlands neighborhood in Birmingham, Alabama to build their dream home. They broke ground in May 2016 and have a tentative completion date inearly 2017. Working with AJ Homes Inc and the VA, they’ve ensured it is accessible and fitted for Aaron’s needs.

The Causeys received a build loan but are also grateful to the outside support from their community. Non-profits and private donors joined their project to see their forever home become a reality. Premier Surfaces is honored to volunteer our services for fabricating and installing their countertops.

We look forward to providing an update on how Aaron, Kat, and AJ are settling into their new home. Please stay tuned.

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
