Keene’s lower Main Street has a new commercial tenant.

Gary McRae of Keene launched Installation Services of Southern N.H. last November with his business partner, Dan Drugg of Fitzwilliam.

“We just decided that we wanted to do something of our own,” McRae said, adding that he and Drugg have more than 50 years of industry experience between them.

The two moved the company into a storefront at 599 Main St. May 1, opening up a showroom that caters to contractors and homeowners. Their installation services include flooring, roofing, windows, doors, siding and decks.

“We’ll pretty much do anything,” McRae said.

He and Drugg do most of the installation themselves, he said, but he also noted that the products in their showroom are available for sale without installation. Similarly, customers can request installation services of products purchased elsewhere, McRae said.

While most of their business is residential, he said they’ve done some small-scale commercial work, such as flooring in bank branches and schools.

For more information about Installation Services of Southern N.H., McRae invites anyone to stop in the new showroom Monday through Friday, call 354-3460 or go to
