During 2020, we’ve all spent way more time at home than ever before. A silver lining of that is we’ve had our eyes opened with a fresh perspective, rethinking each room’s functionality and potential.

This holiday, why not give your family something that will really make a difference in your lives and add lasting value to your home…a new kitchen, master bath or basement with home gym or home theater?

With all the inviting financing options, there’s no reason to put it off. But before you pull the trigger on a renovation, do a little research. It’s wise to go with a contractor who has numerous positive online reviews.

Over the past 45 years in the industry, Bob Gallese, owner of Acclaim Renovations & Design, and his team of ultra-creative designers have transformed countless family living spaces, earning a slew of industry awards and accolades along the way.

“The new normal is that people no longer want to go out to dinner, or go to a crowded gym, or go on vacation,” says Bob. “They are channeling their energies into creating nicer living spaces. And that’s where our passion lies, in designing beautiful rooms that reflect the homeowners’ personality. We bring their dreams to life.”

Acclaim Renovations & Design powered by One Man and a Hammer is located at 8550 East Avenue in Mentor.
