Residential Remodeling

Remodelers add living space to existing homes and retrofit homes to modern conveniences and updated building codes. Remodeling can be done for cosmetic purposes, but also for structural reasons, as well as to increase the energy efficiency of older homes.

Upon graduation, students of the Residential Remodeling program at Thaddeus Stevens will have a number of different opportunities available. In addition to working in their field, graduates will also have the chance to continue their education in areas such as project management, technical education, residential designer, civil engineering, and structural engineering degrees. Advanced opportunities as crew leaders, assistant foremen, foreman and superintendent. Residential remodeling is also a great way to become a small business owner.

"Trust the process."

“I spent four years in the Marine Corps, and then I worked for a place called Skyline, which manufactures homes. I did drywall and framing. That’s where I became passionate about remodeling and fell in love with it. I knew I wanted to go to college, so I did a little research and found that Thaddeus Stevens is a really good school.

“I love all the different aspects of residential remodeling. Here, you learn anything from electric and plumbing to HVAC and masonry. In the carpentry program, you don’t learn as much about the interior of homes and the different aspects that are involved in that.

“Trust the process. Even if you have some experience, over time you get to improve on that experience, and you will learn a lot.”
