Meet Your Metro Milwaukee Home Remodelers

Dear Southeastern Wisconsin Homeowner,

Meet your home remodelers from Klassen Remodeling & Design in Butler, Wisconsin! These are the people behind the company name and those that will be most active in your metropolitan Milwaukee remodeling, design, or home addition project.

Whether an evolution or transformation, the design phase will be a collaborative process. Together, we’ll improve your life by improving the function of your home. You’ll hear us ask things such as:

  • Why do you want to change your home?
  • What expectations do you and/or your family have of your home that are currently unmet?
  • Are there features and amenities that you would like to include?

Homeowners throughout southeastern Wisconsin rely on Klassen Remodeling & Design for whole house renovations, bathroom and kitchen remodeling projects. Including accessibility projects, home additions, exterior design improvements, lower-level renovations and build-outs, and more.

We know that remodeling is never an easy process. Minor home improvements can have a major impact on an active family. Lifestyle modifications are life-changing events. A carefully-planned remodel project with a detailed schedule helps to provide a semblance of sanity and a steady stream of hope.

We are a member of NARI, and are recommended on Houzz, which awarded us the Best of Houzz for design in 2013, and the Best of Houzz for service in 2016.
