About Home Restoration Services, Inc.

People in the Midwest take a lot of pride in their homes, and ever since Twin Cities houses built between 1900 and 1960 began to show their age, there has been a strong demand for Artisan Remodelers to restore and renovate them. Since 1995, Home Restoration Services has been part of that group.

We renovate, restore and build additions to these homes using our time-tested process to produce a seamless, high-quality remodel that remains true to the Architectural style and era of the home.

A word about Green Remodeling. For many years, good remodelers have instinctively used techniques and products that are now considered “green”. Home Restoration Services was among the first local remodelers to use MDF (medium density fiberboard) instead of lumber for our paint-grade custom trim and cabinet work. Since 1999, we have incorporated Icynene® or Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) insulation into our projects, greatly improving the energy performance of the wall systems we build; assuring comfort, energy cost savings and lasting value for the homeowner.

We are known for recycling windows and doors, salvaging and recycling wood trim, using water-based adhesives/finishes at our project sites, and returning wood pallets to our suppliers instead of tossing them into the dumpster. We integrate green building practices into every project we build.



I really enjoyed working with Greg Schmidt/Home Restoration Services. His companys’ work is thorough and very high quality. He expects the best from his sub-contractors and is on-site to make sure the work is completed and meets his (and my) standards. His attention to detail is very much appreciated. I feel like I can trust Greg and not have to second-guess him. And one more thing – he helped us catch a mouse, which clearly was beyond the call of duty


We have come to know Home Restoration Services via a project they completed for our neighbors. We think the work looks wonderful and know our neighbors are pleased with the results. We noted how considerate Home Restoration was during the construction. Not only were they polite and friendly, but always gave a wave and let the kids watch them work. They even paused to answer the children’s questions. Home Restoration Services was consistently on the job and seemed to be very considerate regarding equipment and parking. We think they should be considered if you are contemplating a remodeling project.” An observant neighbor
