When planning your project, the choice of contractor will be the most important factor in your early decision-making. There are hundreds of contractors in the Kansas City area. Some have different specializations, such as new construction, industrial, commercial, etc. For your project, you will likely want to employ a high-quality home remodeler.

We specialize in residential remodeling at RWS, particularly bathroom and kitchen remodels as well as room additions. Some of our colleagues in the city are very skilled and excel in other areas. For you to make the best decision, we recommend companies that we respect and believe do top-quality work.

These are some of the top remodeling contractors in Kansas City, in alphabetical order. Consider reaching out to them when planning your project.

Arch Design Homes

Arch Design Builders is a home remodeling company located in Overland Park, Kansas. They were founded by Bob Morrissey, who has since passed the company onto his son Rob.

They started out building custom homes in the Hallbrook neighborhood. They also developed properties with Don Julian for several years. During this time, they built the Mission Reserve and Woodland Reserve developments. Since then, they have shifted their focus from new construction to home remodeling.

Gahagan-Eddy Building Company

Gahagan-Eddy Building Company was founded in 2002 by Bryce Gahagan and Mark Eddy in Prairie Village, Kansas. They met just out of college while working for a Fortune 500 builder. They wanted to create a company that would better cater to their client’s needs.

Gahagan Eddy’s philosophy is based on a quote from Aristotle, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”

They pride themselves on excellence and focus on doing every project to the highest standard possible. The two men find that they have very different personalities but almost identical work ethics.

Gene Fritzel Construction Company

Gene Fritzel is one of the premier remodeling contractors in Kansas City. They are located in Lawrence, across the street from the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce.

Gene Fritzel Construction Company finds its projects mainly through architectural and colleague referrals. They have one of the highest levels of finish and standards of quality a remodeler can have. They work on only the biggest and highest-level projects in the area. If you hire Fritzel, you will have the best finished product you could imagine.

Scovell Remodeling

Scovell Remodeling is a full-service, design-build firm in Kansas City, Missouri. It was started in 1989 by Jim Scovell and John Wolfe as a home-flipping company. In 1994 they transitioned into a home remodeling business. In 2016 the company was taken over by Scovell’s daughter, Kylie Brewer. She is a designer by trade and transitioned the company into a high-end remodeler.

Kylie, along with her husband John, have owned the company since 2021. If you are in the market for a firm that can both design and build your project Scovell Remodeling may be right for you.
