Ronald L Siebler on the site of a new home.

Siebler, Inc. is a residential remodeling and historic preservation company serving customers in the Dallas - Ft. Worth community. Their portfolio contains an impressive array of projects that includes numerous kitchen and bath remodels, additions, new construction, ecclesiastical renovations, historic preservation, and museum quality restorations.

 

Ron Siebler, President of Siebler, Inc. has twice received ASID Dallas Design Community Designers’ Choice Award for Contractor/Remodeler (2012 & 2014). In May 2016, Ron Siebler received the prestigious Craftsman of the Year Award from Preservation Dallas. He also received Achievement Awards for his work on the MKT Depot at Dallas Heritage Village, The Renner Church Bell Restoration at Farmers Branch Historical Park, and for his work to restore the historic Caruth Family Curing Shed. Ron was instrumentally involved in two other projects that received special recognition from Preservation Dallas: the Sharrock-Niblo Cabin Restoration, and Mark Birnbaum’s documentary film Restore. He previously received the Preservation Dallas Achievement Award for his work on the Pilot Grove Church at Dallas Heritage Village in 2014.

With uncompromising standards, Ron brings together the finest tradesmen, artisans, and design professionals to realize the dreams and particular wishes of the client. His personal presence at the site and side-by-side involvement with his team provides each project with attentive management and timely completion.

After years of hands-on experience, Ron has developed a philosophical, as well as methodical, approach to the work of residential remodeling and historic preservation. This perspective is derived from his belief that these trades and crafts reside within the genre of performed art. Consequently, Ron only works on one major project at a time, which permits him to be completely focused and dedicated to meeting the customer’s specific needs.
 

Ron’s passion for old structures and machines dates to 1984, when he was involved with the first restoration of the Denton County Courthouse on the Square (circa 1897). His body of work as an architectural conservator includes numerous historic buildings, wooden wheel windmills, antique machines, and the preservation and recreation of hardware, furniture, and other artifacts.


Recent architectural conservation and historic preservation projects include the MKT Depot, Pilot Grove Church, Renner School, and the Tholl House at Dallas Heritage Village. He and his team have also done preservation and repair work to the historic Hill-Robberson House in Richardson, Texas, and the Sharrock-Niblo Cabin in southern Dallas County. Other architecturally significant homes in Dallas that Ron has worked on include a Hal Thomson designed home on Swiss Ave, and two O'Neil Ford homes.

 

In early fall 2014, Ron completed a historic windmill restoration for the A. W. Perry Museum in Carrollton.  He is currently working with the Heritage Farmstead Museum in Plano to develop a new windmill and water interpretive program and installation.  And with thanks to The Friends of the Farmers Branch Historical Park, one of his most recent projects is the restoration and re-installation of the original bell into the Old Church belfry.

 

Ron and his work has been the featured subject of several documentary films. Views: the Blacksmith examines the deliberate, methodical, and rhythmically paced work of the blacksmith, while it illuminates the craft, art, and lore of what was once called the "King of Trades." Pilot Grove Church, by award-winning film maker Mark Birnbaum, takes a thoughtful look at Siebler's restoration work to the church that is located on the grounds of Dallas Heritage Village. Siebler has also been an invited presenter at the Texas Association of Museums’ "Historic Preservation Workshop for Museum Historic Structures."
 

Siebler has specialized in performing his carpentry and blacksmith restorations at publicly attended demonstration projects using historic tools and methods in a museum context. With almost twenty years experience in third person interpretation, Siebler frequently volunteers as a Living History Interpreter at the Stuhr Museum in Grand Island, Nebraska. He also serves as the Resident Blacksmith at the Hopkins County Heritage Park, and volunteers at many other living history museums in the North Texas area.


Siebler has built and contributed four playhouses to the Parade of Playhouses at Northpark  benefitting Dallas CASA.  His involvement with the community also includes three terms as a member of the Board of Directors for Promise House in Dallas, Texas.  As a volunteer with the SAW Project (Servants At Work) of First United Methodist Church - Dallas, Siebler organized and supervised the repairs and renovations of over 50 Dallas area homes for poor and elderly residents.  Ron has also assisted with flood and tornado relief efforts in Texas and Missouri.

 

Ron holds a Historic House Certification from Preservation Dallas. Siebler, Inc. is certified by the EPA, and Ron is an "EPA Certified Renovator." He is licensed with several municipalities, including the City of Dallas, and he holds memberships in numerous institutions and organizations.
