About Us

Here at Woods Home Improvements, we have a deep appreciation of beautiful and diverse architectural styles.  We have over ten years of service in remodeling and contracting and enjoy every facet of our work. 

We are committed to helping you design your new space and select the materials that are just right for the character of your home.  We keep you informed about what’s happening during construction and will see the job through to completion. Our company is licensed, bonded, and insured.  In April of 2010 we became an EPA Lead Certified firm.  

As a company, we also consider giving back to our community to be part of our culture. Check out some of the projects with which we have become involved:  Woods Home Improvements Volunteers
