Perrysburg building company unexpectedly closes its doors

PERRYSBURG (13abc Action News) - 13abc Action News has learned that Perrysburg-area builder, Ralph Slaske, closed up shop last week catching his employees and current customers off guard.

The move affects not only Slaske Building Company but also his Perrysburg Kitchens and More shop on Louisiana Avenue.

A source tells 13abc that the builder was working on eight current contracts for new homes. Some of those projects were in the beginning stages. We're told other builders have reached out to affected employees asking how they can help.

There has been no reason given for the closure.

Phones for the company are disconnected.

There are social media posts threatening lawsuits against the company for money paid and work not finished.

Slaske Builders was most recently in the news for construction of a dream home offered by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
