Penny Erickson

Penny has a passion for constructing things and supporting our crews in reaching their peak performance each day. As the person in charge of field operations, she is committed to understanding the homeowner’s needs. Penny ensures that Blackrock Exteriors upholds elevated standards in both its work and communication.

In her own words: “My childhood involved a bit of moving around, from ND to the Twin Cities, but we eventually settled in Blackduck, MN. Growing up, I had the privilege of engaging in a diverse range of activities including fishing, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling,  waterskiing, and hunting, along with the love of participation in team sports.. After returning to the Twin Cities, I found my calling in the trades. While I possess a variety of skills, my standout talent lies in guiding people on what needs to be done. I eagerly anticipate collaborating with you and delivering the same high-quality workmanship that I would expect for my own home!”

Sarah Baso

Sarah’s background includes working as a contract lawyer, nonprofit director, homemaker, and entrepreneur running her own sewing and design business. After making many mistakes in the process of purchasing and owning her first home, she became interested with the world of  exterior construction and water mitigation. After working through her own struggles with lack of knowledge about the insurance industry and claims process, she is now passionate about empowering other homeowners, particularly as it pertains to storm damage and insurance claims.

As the person in charge of business operations and finance, Sarah manages the behind the scenes infrastructure of Blackrock Exteriors. She also is currently actively creating educational opportunities for homeowners to learn the right questions to ask their real estate agents, insurance agents and building contractors. 

When she’s not on the phone with insurance companies or meeting with the Blackrock Exteriors Team, she’s busy juggling her family’s schedule, taking a long run at Elm Creek Park, or enjoying the sunshine with a good book.
