Home-Renu is the evolution of my knowledge and work within the construction industry. Over the years I have worked on whole house building projects from start to finish, as well as in specific trades like painting, roofing and finish carpentry. I began Home-Renu while I was in college earning my BA in Environmental Science. I started doing occasional maintenance on my landlord’s houses; one project led to another and by the time I graduated I had a thriving business.

After collaborating on many conventional job sites I became increasingly put off by the amounts of toxic chemicals that were present in all phases of construction and the incredible amount of waste filling the dumpsters on a daily basis. I knew that there had to be a better way. In 2002 I decided to take a closer look at my own business and find ways to approach my projects from an ecological and holistic perspective. At the time, there were very few eco-friendly paint and plaster options, but now there is an array of products to choose from.

We continue to streamline our practices and are proud to provide healthy, sustainable remodeling options to our clients. A few of our vendors and favorite products are below.
