Better House Inc. takes pride in all that we can do to improve your house, maybe a new Entry Door or add a Front Covered Porch to add some curb appeal to the front of your house, we can professionally Finish your Basement for added living space, install Window Replacements for ease of operation and Energy Savings, or create a Beautiful Kitchen or Bath, our attention to detail shows and our finished projects speak for themselves. Sure there are some bigger remodeling companies with impressive expensive showrooms, numerous sales people and support staff, even architects, all of which cost a lot of money which must be passed on to you the customer, Better House Inc. is a smaller, leaner company with a strong work ethic, and a passion for Home Improvements.
We get the majority of our work from past customers and their referrals, we handle most of our projects with our own workers and when needed on bigger projects if the job calls for it we recruit the needed personnel, architects, designers etc., while overseeing every step with great attention to detail, doing things this way allows Better House Inc. to complete quality projects with huge savings for you, larger projects usually require Building Permits which have inspections at every step of a project that also help to insure you receive a Quality Project.
We at Better House Inc are very passionate about helping people improve their homes and help them to make the best use of their Home Improvement dollars. A little about the owner, Doug Sculthorpe has always been a hardworking self starter who believes in a strong work ethic, at the age of 13 he delivered the Detroit Free Press for 3 years to 150 homes, 365 days a year, in his home town of Livonia, MI , setting his alarm to get up at 5am before school, usually in the dark, carrying a big stack of newspapers in a bag on his bicycle even in the snow or rain, and back then they were delivered to the front door not the curb, it was that kind of determination that led to being self employed and moving to Chicago suburbs in 1983 at age 19 on his own, because it was a bigger faster growing area to sell and install Doors and Windows, later adding Basement Finishing, Remodeling and all types of Home Improvements.
They say do something you enjoy and its really not work, the sense of accomplishment that this type of work brings often makes our work a pleasure, it is also said that hard work builds character, well there has been a lot of hard work since 1983, our attention to detail has helped us serve over 15,000 customers, with a majority of those customers coming from referrals.
We look forward to the oppurtunity to help make your Home Improvement Dreams a Reality.
