About Us

Architectural integrity.  Professional integrity.  Personal integrity.  That’s what you can expect when you partner with Karlovec & Company on your home remodeling or restoration project. Our team of professional architects, designers, project managers, and master builders will ensure a successful outcome using our unique Design/Build Remodel approach. We’ll communicate clearly throughout the process and deliver your project on time and on budget.




We know this community. We know older homes. We’ve restored and remodeled hundreds of spaces, so we’re not intimidated by much, and we know how to respect the integrity of historic structures.



It’s not just about your space. It’s about you. We take the time to get to know you and your family’s lifestyle and use that understanding to re-design your home in a way that will help you achieve your long term goals.



We follow the warranty standards set by the National Association of Home Builders. Our work is guaranteed up to 24 months after substantial completion, with 6, 12, and 24 month inspections and corrections (if needed).
