Angie, thank you. You guys are awesome. Dealing with jobs like this one and the Banks Rowhomes with breaking everything out we really appreciate it. And more importantly the customer really appreciates it. It sets us apart from all the others that just give generic quotes.

Angie Lutz


Angie entered the construction field over 15 years ago – starting off in residential construction in Montana before moving to Oregon to work on the commercial side. In 2012, Angie and Erik began working together and a year later, began HDG Building Materials.

A graduate of the University of Puget Sound, Angie spent most of her time in the Pacific NW before finally venturing out and traveling – most recently she moved her family to Belize for a 3 year adventure.

A LEED Accredited Professional, Angie has worked on several LEED projects and hopes to one day establish her own greenhouse – to grow plants. One thing Angie enjoys about HDG is that the company is not simply looked upon as a supplier of innovative materials but that many times HDG becomes part of the design process and is able to provide solutions to all types of clients including architects. She can say that because her sister is an architect.

Erik is more than a rep for HDG Building Materials; he’s a landscape architect with design sensibility. In addition to buying products, I’m handing him designs for the homes in which we’re using those products. Erik knows the capabilities of his products. He’s been helpful in coming up with designs to meet the architecture of the house. His design and architecture sense make HDG products more effective. This added feature is why I like doing business with HDG Building Materials.
