8 Reasons To Hire A Professional Remodeler

Why Hire a Professional Home Remodeler


For those of you that don’t know me, I am Michael Menn, an architect and professional remodeler. As a member of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), I have continued my education and achieved the following certifications: CAPS (Certified Aging In Place Specialist), CGR (Certified Graduate remodeler), & CGP (Certified Green Professional).  What does that mean to you, the consumer? My education, networking, advocacy and the cross country friendships I have made with people that “do what I do,” set me apart from your local builder/remodeler that does not have an 1800 member association to belong to.


If you are considering a home remodeling project, the most important decision you can make is selecting a professional home remodeler to do the job. Your home is too important to entrust to anyone but a professional home remodeler who can:

  • Save you money by doing your job right the first time.
  • Ensure that your dreams are accurately translated into reality by offering design services in-house with an architect like our firm.
  • Understand that your comfort during the project and its successful completion depend on effective communication and follow-through.
  • Maintain a safe and neat job site to prevent damage to your home or injury to household members and pets.
  • Provide the best possible materials within your budget and assist you in making selections through the vendors they work with.
  • Ensure that your job meets or exceeds applicable building codes and regulations such as the EPA Lead Paint rule for work on homes built before 1978.
  • Guarantee the quality of their work with a warranty.
  • Respond promptly to service calls and inquiries.

Everything we do is to enhance and romance our living or work environments. We work to create a special place that feels inviting, warm and comfortable. Call or email me if you would like us to help enhance your work or living space.
