Schrader & Companies Remodeler

Andy Schrader

How did you get started in remodeling?

I have a passion for well-designed and crafted homes that started by watching my father succeed in the interior design business as I grew up. I have been involved in designing and building homes for more than 23 years. I had a technical interest in homebuilding in college which led to a job framing houses for a reputable Twin Cities builder. Like father, like son, and my creative side took over. Combining my on-site technical knowledge and creativity, I took up designing and managing home construction.
