Lewes contractor featured in new Craftsman commercial
LEWES, Del. – You might notice a local face in a Craftsman video commercial and that’s because a Lewes contractor is being featured in a new testimonial for the company.
Justin Travis is a general contractor and co-owner of Coastal Cottage Renovations in Lewes. He says the team at Craftsman found them on social media and reached out to them earlier this year. They did a pre-interview and were sent a bunch of tools to test out. Then about four months ago a crew of about 30 people came to Lewes to film the ad. They had about four projects going on at the time so they filmed a little at each spot.
“It was a great experience and it was humbling that they found us. It’s such a huge company. It was like a big deal and it was pretty cool to be in our little town and do something like that,” says Travis.
Coastal Cottage Renovations was formed about six years ago. They focus on full house renovations in the historic and beach areas with the goal of preserving the history of Lewes. Travis says the commercial can likely be seen on websites like Lowe’s if you go to view a Craftsman V20 tool.
