Fast forward a few years and Ben was given his start in the construction industry and never looked back. Ben started Revive Home Remodel after spending the last decade working in the residential construction field. In 2014 Ben and his spouse, Courtney, relocated to Eugene to experience all the things Oregon has to offer and the Willamette Valley became home.
With professional experience in all things residential construction. Ben has worked as an on-site tradesman, a technical sales representative for a building material manufacturer, and as the general manager for a local general contractor. Ben brings a unique skill set to work everyday.
“My goal when starting RHR was to use our experience and bring our clients a remodeling service that would help make their house look fantastic, but also keep budget in mind.” One of the cornerstones of Revive Home Remodel is delivering our services on a budget. With a little creativity and a low overhead small business model we have the ability to take on the small projects to upgrade your space or transform your whole house.
