More of Our Work


"Russell Harper with RenewaBuild just completed a total renovation of our bathroom. They tore out the old garden tub and standing shower and installed a new larger shower with frameless glass enclosure. The tile work is gorgeous! They also re-tiled the floors, installed a frame around our mirror, installed new fixtures, granite countertops, and painted. Russell was excellent to work with, on-site daily, kept me updated on all the progress, helped with selecting beautiful finishes, and was very respectful of our property and privacy-- always keeping the work site swept clean. Highly recommended!"
- Jill S.

"Renewabuild's best attribute is they'll only do things right. No short cuts or patches. Only downside to the first job was had to wait in line a bit for my turn. That said, it was well worth it. With contractors I always worry about whether they'll show up, or come back when they say they will. This was not a problem at all. We were 100% satisfied (hence the second job we gave them.) New carpet on a home we were selling- excellent short notice job with fantastic price. This was the second job. Russell knocked out a large wish list, from large to small items on the purchase of our new home."

"We are so happy with both the design work as well as the construction. Russell has gone out of his way to accommodate our stylistic and financial requirements to get the job done in an efficient and cost effective manner. He has spent extra time, when necessary, to do the job well. Russell particularly gave us some great advice regarding paint colors, cabinet and counter styles and colors that would blend well with our existing tiles."
Wayne & Liz T.

"Russell was an absolute joy to work with. He was courteous, professional, timely and treated my home like his own. He came in right at my budget and finished a week ahead of schedule. I just referred him to my friend whom is also experiencing the kitchen of her dreams. I hired Renewabuild to renovate my outdated kitchen and create a more open concept. I couldn't have my family or friends over before because I was too embarrassed. He gave me an open floor plan with new appliances, cabinetry and countertops. I love showing it off now."
