About Us

Dedicated to your satisfaction.

If there’s one word that defines Lighthouse Residential Remodeling, it’s dedication.


First, we are dedicated exclusively to residential remodeling. For more than a decade, we have worked with families throughout the Charlotte region on nearly every type of renovation project imaginable, from kitchen and bath redesigns to bedroom and attic conversions to additions. Along the way, our work has been recognized with numerous industry awards, and more importantly, we have developed lasting relationships with our clients, who gladly recommend us to their friends and family.

Second, we are dedicated to you – our client. We limit the number of projects we accept at any given time to ensure that we give you our focused attention and superior service. From our first meeting until our final walk-through and beyond, you’ll work directly with one of our principals to guarantee that we understand exactly what you want to achieve and that nothing is lost in translation at any step along the way.

Finally, as a family-owned business, we’re dedicated to creating spaces that bring families together. Whether we’re working on a single-room remodel or a whole-house renovation, we’ll transform your existing spaces to fit your lifestyle, meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

Two brothers. Two experts. Two business partners.
