About Us

McCabe Construction Company is a family-owned and operated business, local to the marvelous Memphis area, for many years.

We specialize in restoration construction, and work with insurance agents in the area by advising if the damage should be turned over to claims or if it is covered, which let’s be honest, makes everyone’s lives a little bit easier.

A Brief History:

Our founder, David McCabe, started out working with State Farm fire claims until October 15th, 1984. On the first of June that year, he became a partner with West TN Contractors, who specialized in insurance repair work, 99% of which was insurance repairs. That really got our foot in the door and established our good name and relationships with agents and staff all over the Memphis area. Thirteen years later to the day, David went out on his own and created McCabe Construction Company, LLC. Along with his wife, Suzann, who ran the financials of the entire business (who still does that to this day), he brought on Jerry Harris to help run jobs. David’s son, DJ, was brought on board upon his graduation from Appalachian State in 2004, and while he was in charge of estimating and running jobs, Cory was also brought on to run and coordinate jobs to completion. Around 8 years ago, William Slankard joined the company as an estimator, with previous experience with fire claims with State Farm, making his transition into McCabe Construction smooth.

Now,  from 1984 to the present, the company has grown over 150 times its size to the present date. We attribute that success to staying on top of the jobs, and having some of the best workers in the city on our team.

WILLIAM SLANKARD- General Contractor

I have 10 years of experience as an insurance adjuster, which really helps me as a general contractor now. I was an adjuster for State Farm from 1998-2006, and then was an adjuster for 2 years with USAA before I joined the McCabe Family in 2008. By having this background, I am able to speak the same language and use the same estimate programs as your agent, making the process easier for everyone.

 

DAVID LOGAN- Project Manager

I was born and raised in Southaven, Mississippi. I have a beautiful wife, Melanie, and a son named Conner. My friends and family spend our time hunting and fishing. My background in the industry is in the flooring industry; I started that in 1997. I have been a project manager for McCabe Construction since 2011, and I manage the southern portion of our reach, as far as Senatobia.

 

SUZANN MCCABE- owner/office manager

My first job out of college was working as a secretary for an Insurance Agent here in Memphis. I founded McCabe Construction with my husband David and I am currently Chief Financial Officer for the company.

 

 

DAVID MCCABE- owner/founder

I moved to Memphis from Nashville in 1978 to work as a Fire Claims Adjuster for State Farm Insurance. I remained with State Farm until 1984 when we became a partner in a Construction company that specialized in Insurance restoration. I remained there for 13 years until 1997 when I decided I wanted to have a company that I could bring my family into. On Oct 1, 1997 McCabe Construction Company was born. I am still very involved in Project Management and active in the day to day operations in the company.

 

DJ MCCABE- President/ General Contractor

I grew up around the Construction industry and still remember seeing some of the crews that still work for us today when I was a young boy. I was born and raised in Memphis and went to College at Appalachian State University, where I played on the Men’s Soccer Team. After graduating I moved home to Memphis and started working in the family business with my father. I currently handle project management and managing our growth strategy for the company.
