Santanni Custom Homes is a family-owned business built by generations of Santanni builders. We have upheld the hands-on approach that serves as our foundation for over 40 years. Custom Built Better.

How did you get started in remodeling?

Remodeling has always been a part of Santanni Custom Homes. We have a passion for new custom homes, but as we navigated the waters of change, remodeling became a huge love for our company, and we continue to flourish in this arena.

How would you describe your team’s approach to a new project?

Enthusiastic. We bring along a lot of energy when we take on these projects and do our best to ensure our clients remain at the top of our list. Also, we remain invested in ideas. If, along the way we notice a process or layout can be better, we always pull in our clients to help make the final decision.

What makes you most proud to be a remodeler?

Coming from a custom home background we feel we are more versatile when it comes to remodeling. We often will overthink projects to ensure we are meeting the standards of new homes and trends. Remodeling helps us show our artistry. Clients don’t always have the vision and when we get the canvas in our hands it’s always fun to put our personal touch on their projects.

What is the most important element of a successful remodeling team?

Communication. Remodeling is always evolving and changing along the way. Items can be forgotten or overlooked. The way to combat these forgotten items is through continued communication. These open channels allow us to do our job better, which ultimately provides a more complete project.

What inspires and influences your work?

We are inspired to see change and the joy it brings to our clients. Often, the changes that come with remodeling alter lives. We are most inspired when we are able to make our clients’ homes their forever home.

What sets your company apart?

We pride ourselves on being a hands-on partner. We are a company that provides all in-house carpentry including the office staff. We do this to remain personally vested in our projects and provide our personal touch to each project.

How do you bring a client’s vision to life?

This starts early on in the planning process. We provide a collaborative design process through building plans and 3D models to bring our projects to life. Also, explaining each detail throughout the project to help visualize the spaces desired. We will provide real-time feedback on each space and help each client walk through the spaces even though they are not completed.

What are some of your favorite trends and styles in remodeling?

Often, we are up against an outdated home with too many compartments. Taking down walls helps bring homes into the current decade. We typically want to ensure kitchens and mudrooms are present to help with our busy lives. Also, due to the quickly changing world, office spaces are the hottest trend. Some of our favorite trends when remodeling comes from the advances in electronics, insulation, and HVAC.
