When gathering with friends and family for the holidays in your home, don’t just dream about a white Christmas. Instead, dream big—and make your home remodeling project a reality.

“When renovating homes, we can add extra space above and below by building a room addition or finishing a basement,” says Ron Kaye, whose two sons, Joe and Josh, own Kaye Construction. “Plus, we can remodel kitchens to make them more open to the rest of the home and provide a better flow.”

The company built dozens of room additions this year, including one in Berea finished just this month. Kaye Construction created more living space adjacent to the original family room flanked by a wall of windows.

Kaye Construction created more living space adjacent to the original family room on this home in Berea.

“We will start scheduling new additions again when the winter weather breaks in March,” notes Ron. “We are currently booking kitchen projects.”

Often referred to as “the heart of the home,” the kitchen always seems to be the place where everyone gathers, making a kitchen upgrade one of the top items on many homeowners’ renovation lists.

“A lot of older homes have walls separating each room, but nowadays people like a more open concept, so we have been taking down walls separating the kitchen from the living room or dining room,” says Joe. “While this may not actually increase your footprint, you will gain more usable space and can make room for an island or pantry.”

This 480-square-foot addition features a vaulted cathedral ceiling with pine planking and an abundance of windows to create more of a sunroom ambiance.

“We can move the appliances and utilities around to reconfigure your space into a layout that’s better suited to your needs,” he adds. “Not only will this make the house feel bigger, it also improves the flow from room to room.”

When you hire this locally owned family business, instead of getting just one guy you get three experienced remodelers—though they do look a little similar with their bearded faces, which are depicted in the company logo.

“You will find the three of us working side-by-side on every project,” says Ron. “Unlike bigger home improvement companies, where you never meet the owners, we oversee each job personally.”

Ron has been working in the home remodeling industry for more than a quarter-century and has passed along his know-how and work ethic to his sons, whom he jokingly says were born with a hammer in one hand and a screwdriver in the other.

Specializing in kitchen and bath remodels and room additions, the three of them can remodel and build everything from the floor up.

Make Your Basement Square Footage Count
If you want to add a bedroom in your basement, Kaye Construction can renovate your basement and build an egress window as a secondary exit.

“Not only does an egress window help you safely get out of the house if there is a fire, it also allows you to count the basement square footage as part of your home’s total size when you go to sell it,” says Ron.

When building a master bedroom and bathroom in the basement, Kaye Construction installed an egress window for this Strongsville homeowner.

To install an egress window, the contractor digs a pit outside the window and places an insert into the ground with a ladder integrated inside. These larger windows let in more natural sunlight, making the basement more inviting.
