Structural Remodeling—Home Remodeling Done Right

H & H Builders specializes in structural remodeling.

What is structural remodeling?

Some remodeling work is merely cosmetic; it doesn’t involve any changes to elements of a home that bear the weight of the home or enable it to stand up to the elements, like Colorado winds, rain, and snow.

Structural remodeling, by contrast, is construction done to modify a home that involves the repair, modification, removal, or addition of load-bearing elements such as walls, posts, and foundations. It’s residential remodeling that changes how your house is put together.

Structural remodeling opens up far more options than cosmetic remodeling.

Structural remodeling can improve your home by:

  • adding new living space with additions or popups
  • adding exterior living space with balconies or decks
  • making your floor plan more functional, efficient, and useable
  • opening up your interior living space

Proper structural remodeling protects homeowners.

Residential building codes exist to protect homeowners from badly performed structural remodeling work, whether in new construction or in remodeling. When structural remodeling work is not done properly, it puts a home at risk of collapse—which puts you, your family, and your possessions at risk.

H & H Builders owner John Happel is a structural engineer. We’re the only Denver-area residential remodeling firm with that kind of structural remodeling know-how. John’s expertise ensures that your structural remodel will not only stand up—it will also dramatically improve your home!

Our Design–Build process maximizes the benefits of your structural remodel.

At H & H Builders, we use a design-build process that integrates the design and construction of your residential remodel under one in-house team. In other words, you reap the benefits of our structural expertise not only in the building phase, but also in the design phase. Once you’ve described your vision for your home, we can suggest optimal ways of carrying it out—perhaps a more efficient or cost-effective alternative to what you had in mind!
