A Special Shout Out To HVH Remodeling of Houston

In Houston, it goes without saying that it really gets hot during the summer months and 2014 is no exception. With 100 degree temperatures bearing down on us, we decided to upgrade our air conditioning unit and have a patio cover and deck installed in the backyard to add to all the fun that comes along with the season.

Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due

I have to admit, I was impressed with the efficiency and timeliness of the services provided by HVH Remodeling. They finished a week ahead of schedule and if you didn’t know our patio had just been added, you would have never known they had just finished the job. This speaks volumes of the “minimal footprint” they claimed they would leave in their promotional materials.


It goes without saying that we recommend HVH Remodeling for all your home improvement needs if you live in the Houston area. Contact HVH Remodeling at 832-881-7112 if you need to talk with someone about a remodeling project for your home.
