When college friends Seth Cammeyer and Brian Leader started Improveit Home Remodeling in 1989, they had some industry experience, a single truck, lots of grit, and a philosophy about the right way to run a reputable remodeling company.
They set out to deliver a new experience, with these guiding principles:
Educate Don't Sell
Share our knowledge and expertise with homeowners and help them make the best decisions.
Take 100% Accountability
When people, houses, materials, and construction intersect, hiccups happen. What matters is our commitment to making it right, no matter what.
Be There for a Lifetime
Guarantee your work for a lifetime and provide products and service so great your customers never need to look for a contractor again.
Staying true to our core philosophy has allowed us to grow into one of the largest, most successful, and fastest-growing home remodeling companies in the country. Regardless of our success, Seth and Brian are still working shoulder-to-shoulder with the Improveit family every day, ensuring we stay true to our original guiding principles.
From the start, our goal has been to take the risk out of home improvement. That’s why we’ve always given customers down-to-the-penny quotes (no vague estimates) that are good for a full year. This way, you can confidently plan for your project, at your pace, and know exactly what you’ll pay.
Just a few years into business, we upgraded our windows to include a non-metal spacer between the two panes of glass because we knew this was one of the keys to offering the most energy-efficient windows possible. Today, our windows use an exclusive, top-performing, non-metal spacer to deliver maximum energy savings
Effective project management ensures that we finish jobs on time, on budget, and with a five-star customer service experience. When we couldn’t find a tool to help us manage all of that to our standards, we invented one. Today, that software, ImproveIt 360, works so well many of the country’s largest home improvement and home services businesses also use it!
Initially, we offered bath and shower liners – until we realized we were only covering up our customers’ problems, not solving them. That’s definitely not risk-free. In 2010 we transitioned to offering replacement tubs and showers made from the industry’s highest grade of acrylic to ensure your bath provides a lifetime of performance and beauty.
In 2013, our customers asked for a single-source bathroom remodeling solution, and we made it happen. Instead of only focusing on what we call the “wet space” – tubs, showers, and wall surrounds – we began offering beautiful vanities fixtures, lighting, and more all with the same quality standards we demand of our tub and shower materials.
We started this year with two of our most powerful window enhancements, and we’re so proud of the performance they bring. Our windows now feature a solid, insulation-filled frame, and three layers of energy-efficient coatings to give you the hardest working, most energy-efficient windows in the Midwest!
