    Building Character Into Homes

    Our team has partnered with families and individuals throughout southwest Michigan and the greater Kalamazoo area for nearly 50 years. Our passion is exceeding expectations through creative and outstanding residential building solutions. And we deliver them with attentive, responsive, and sincere service.



    An important step in starting any new client relationship is to figure out if it will be a good fit. After the initial phone call, one of our estimators will come out to your home to meet with you and listen to your wants, needs, and must-haves. We will also ask questions and make sure we develop realistic expectations. Rough cost ranges are usually discussed at this meeting, and often times our clients will discover they value quality more than cost. A home remodel can be a large commitment for any homeowner. Our knowledgeable team has nearly 50 years of remodeling experience, and we want to make sure everything is as it should be before the project starts so we can deliver on our promises.

    design and build example


    Our design staff will use their extensive knowledge and experience to bring your vision to life and create a unique custom design to fit your situation. We are detailed, thorough, and will do what it takes to get it right. You will have the opportunity to see examples of what your remodel will look like before we start construction so you have a chance to share your input about all the little details that will make your home great. In most cases, you will be provided several design options to choose from so you can be confident in the success of your remodel.


    What makes Pennings & Sons unique is that we build what we design. This ensures that the high quality design work is executed exactly as intended. Our workers are considerate and professional. All of our jobs have a job supervisor who will keep things on schedule and address any concerns that may come up. We pride ourselves on good communication and clean job sites. We will stay on top of your remodel and see it to completion, making sure everything is not only done correctly but also up to code and legal.
