About Kirk Remodel and Design

Kirk Remodel and Design is a family-owned design and build firm started by Kirk Jolley over 32 years ago in the Fremont neighborhood, where he still resides. Kirk is a hands-on contractor who loves to work directly with his clients, and has the help of his son for fine carpentry, his daughter — a university-trained expert in kitchen and bath design — and his nephew for framing and handyman work.

With the help of his team, Kirk is able to guide you through the home or commercial remodeling process from start to finish. You can rest assured that your remodel is in the hands of a team of licensed and bonded professionals. Kirk's crew also includes subcontractors who are experts in the fields of plumbing, electrical, tile and stone installation, and drywall.
