About LC Design Remodeling, Inc.

We are the oldest full service remodeler in the Shenandoah Valley. Known as The Remodeling Wizards, have satisfactorily completed over 2,100 projects during the past thirty-five years. We pride ourselves on creating unique solutions to challenging projects and on our dedicated craftsmen, two of whom have been with us for over twenty years (loyalty unheard of in our industry). As a full-service company, we have designed and remodeled many kitchens and bathrooms, finished basements, built additions – both expanding the footprint of the original home and adding a second story to an existing home, historic restorations, and full house conversions. I believe my company is a reflection of me as a person, so every project is treated with meticulous care, impeccable workmanship, respect for the individual’s home, and sensitivity to his feelings. As a result of this attitude, our clients keep coming back to us time and again when they need more improvement work. In fact, last year, over 80% of our business came from past clients and referrals. We are a Virginia State Registered Contractor both in building and plumbing.
