Renovations

Every renovation receives the same attention to detail as the quality homes Hart is known for building. Whether you’re adding onto an existing home, renovating a kitchen or bath, changing the interior decor or adding a basement build out, Hart can do any renovation project that requires a licensed general contractor. As a note, jobs under $50,000 normally don’t qualify.

Currently, new home construction is heavily weighed down with many local government taxes, utility tap fees and over-priced land costs. Renovation projects normally bypass these inflated costs and are far less expensive than moving into a new home.

Maintaining a home is very important for conserving value and equity. Updating a home helps keep it competitive with new home construction. The Hart Team will give existing homeowners advice on improving their quality of life, while updating their homes with modern advances in home construction.

Interior Design Services

Interior design services are available with a contract to build.

The interior selection service includes many specialized shopping trips to hand pick items directly from the manufacturer’s warehouses.  In addition, clients receive special discounts exclusively reserved for Hart’s clientele.
