About Us

Our StoryThe Board Store Home Improvements is a team of home improvement professionals dedicated to providing superior value to homeowners.

We believe that value is not about what you spend but what you get for what you spend. We strive to provide the best product and service possible for each dollar you invest as we believe home improvements are an investment, not an expense. You are trading one asset of value (money) for another asset of value (your home). Your property appreciates in value and your family appreciates a better life.

The Board Store Home Improvements Team is made up of career home improvement professionals. They are all full-time employees who are dedicated to serving you as evidenced by the amount of repeat customers and referrals that we receive.

Miles Wilkins Owner/CEO

Miles is the owner and general manager of The Board Store. He follows a simple principle…count others as more important than yourself…while providing great products at a great value.

Gene started with The Board Store in 1993 so he’s our resident expert on home improvement projects. In his spare time, Gene loves to fish. So, when he’s not out on the water, he’d love to come see you and give you an estimate on improving your home.

Mark Anthony Ploszay

Mark lives in Holmen and joined our sales team in May 2016.  You might recognize Mark’s “radio voice” from a past life or his face from his sales positions at other local companies.  He is eager to meet you and help with your next project.

Jim Wanek

Jim joined The Board Store team in 2011 with 14 years of experience in the home improvements business.  He and his wife live in La Crosse and his wife is a local business owner.  Jim is a connoisseur of wine, so if you like wine, strike up a conversation with Jim.  He’ll point you in the right direction.
