Kind Words

We’re a little old-fashioned sometimes

We believe good lemonade should be made by hand, and great reputations should be earned by exceeding expectations and committing to superior craftmanship and professionalism.

We are thankful for our awesome clients and appreciative of what they have say about partnering with us.

ReStart Home Renovations transformed our underused formal living room, office, and half bathroom into a luxurious main floor master bedroom suite with huge walk in closet and incredible walk in shower and soaking tub. We were so impressed with Scott and his team from the beginning- with the integrity, craftsmanship, and communication every step of the way. It is rare these days to find someone that will stay with you as their sole project from beginning to end, that will show up when stated, keep a clean worksite, do things WELL, and stay on budget! When we first contacted Scott last year, we knew we wanted a main floor master suite, but was unsure as to room design, flow, finishes, or even dimensions. He came out to see the space, take measurements, and we discussed our dreams for the space. He took our thoughts and came back to us with two floor plans. His wife Jessica is a talented designer and created several mood boards from which to choose. They created an accurate 3D rendering that enabled us to see how our space would ultimately look. Our project included renovating the existing fireplace and creating a custom mantle and surround; heated tile floors in herringbone pattern; reworking plumbing and electrical; custom wood accent wall; painting all the existing and new trim and crown molding; new wood floors that match our existing; removing part of the staircase banister and trim to create wall for new entrance into master suite; building tile shower with bench, rain shower and dual shower heads; barn doors; double door entrance; sconces; vanity and medicine cabinets; and much much more. The whole process was relatively stress free for us– which is quite an accomplishment for a home renovation project, let alone one on this scale. We highly recommend ReStart Home Renovations and plan to use them again for any future projects. We have zero complaints or suggestions to how they could even improve their services– they were that wonderful. Thank you for our dream space, Scott and Jessica! It turned out more beautiful than we ever imagined.

Scott & Jess have been amazing to work with! They are everything you’re looking for in finding a trustworthy contractor. They remodeled our bathroom after 3 other companies butchered the original job. Scott came in gutted the room & put it back together beautifully. They also renovated our garage into an in-law suite which came out better than I could have ever imagined. Their pricing is fair, work is both beautiful yet thorough they have excellent communication & are there for you throughout the entire process from start to finish. Thank you Scott & Jess.

We decided to go with Restart Home Renovations for our remodel and we could not be happier with our choice. Scott and Jessica and their team were great to work with. They were very professional, communicated well, and were very detailed oriented. Our master bathroom came out gorgeous. The kitchen, half bathroom, sunroom, office, laundry room, and dining room all came out so beautiful. We love our main level and master bathroom we can’t thank Scott and Jessica enough.

Scott did a great job! He takes pride in his work, cleans up when finished and is extremely detail oriented. His workmanship exceeded our expectations on two full bathroom remodeling jobs. Trustworthy, honest, and we had no issues with him working in our home alone. You could pay less for inferior quality, but why take chances. If you want the job done right the first time give Scott at ReStart Home Renovations a call. You won’t be disappointed.

Restart Home Renovations is a fabulous company. Scott and Jessica Holwick designed and remodeled our kitchen, powder room and laundry room and exceeded our expectations. They listened to our desires and needs and created an amazing space for us to enjoy fellowship with family and friends. Every detail was well thought out and covered from floor to ceiling and the final look is beautiful. We have had guests who have absolutely loved the remodel and have asked for a referral for their remodeling needs in the future. We highly recommend Restart Home Renovations and Scott and Jessica for your remodeling needs.

I’m a Realtor in the Lehigh Valley and have been through a few of their homes. Just beautiful!!! The best I’ve seen in the area. It’s very refreshing to see that quality of work and attention to detail!

We hired Restart Home Renovations to remodel our first floor: kitchen, dining room, powder room, living room.  We are completely satisfied and LOVE the end result!!  It really couldn’t be better! It looks like it’s straight out of a magazine (many of our friends made this comment too!).  Not only does it look good at first glance, but if you look closely, you can see that the work is done with excellence.  The painting is perfect with completely smooth walls & ceiling and perfect lines for ceiling cut-in and trim.  The cabinets, flooring, doors, and molding are straight and square and there are no gaps where there shouldn’t be.  In addition to looking good, everything works exactly as it should.  HVAC, plumbing, and electric were all re-worked correctly, to code, and with the proper permits & inspections.  Scott did a lot of the work himself except for demo and granite installation.  He was SO great to work with and he made the whole process completely stress-free.  From the time of my initial inquiry to the time we received a detailed quote was a total of about two weeks (included an in-person meeting at my home).  The quote was itemized with several choices provided so that we could make educated decisions on the final project.  After we decided on the final project, he helped us pick out all the materials and colors which kept a potentially difficult task very easy.  He already knew the right placement for lighting, so we didn’t need to figure that out on our own.  He always went above and beyond to make things look good and function well.  I really appreciated that he vacuumed the dust while sanding, which prevented it from travelling to other parts of the house.  He often worked late (with our permission), but switched to quiet jobs in the late evening so as to not disturb anyone.  He kept the refuse from being in the way or being an eye-sore by having the demo company come pick it up a few times throughout the job instead of keeping a big dumpster in the driveway.  Scott was extremely easy to communicate with as well.  He always answered texts and emails quickly and completely.  Nothing was forgotten or done in a different way than requested.  I HIGHLY recommend Scott & Restart Home Renovations for your next project!!  You would be very fortunate to have them be the one to do it for you!!

My husband and I asked ReStart Home Renovations to remodel the two bathrooms in our home as well as put in a new floor in our basement.  The bathrooms were both very outdated and made with poor materials. We weren’t exactly sure what we wanted; we just figured anything would be an improvement. Scott told us that he commits himself to one remodel at a time so that he can give 100% of his time and attention  to each project. He absolutely followed through with this, putting continuous long hours into the work. He paid attention to every detail. We were quite confident in his abilities as a contractor but what we didn’t realize is that he is a designer as well.  We wanted a clean and modern design for our “his and hers” bathrooms.  He guided us through our choices of materials and colors: the results are two stunningly beautiful bathrooms. We feel like we spend everyday in a luxury hotel or spa. Thank you Scott.
