About Us

Welcome to Delta Renovations! We are a full-service professional remodeling contractor. For over 30 years we have been helping area residents beautify their homes with custom additions, renovations and intelligent design. We look forward to adding you to the long list of folks we’ve worked with.

Construction Services:
Our employees are the people you will see each day.  As a carpenter based remodeling firm, we feel strongly in the necessity of maintaining this essential component in-house to assure the quality of the work, the safety of the jobsite and your home being treated as such - not just a construction site. Our subcontract trades are “captive trades” meaning we use the same plumber, same electrician, etc. for every project we do. These are “Ma and Pop” businesses and we know their owners as well as each of the tradespeople that will work in your home, assuring that our procedures are followed by everyone involved.  Each project receives a project manager, so from the beginning to the punch list you have one of our trusted leaders to work with you to provide the communication and execution these intricate projects require.

Design Services:
We offer intelligent design services for both interior and exterior renovations. Our in-house design staff headed by Vice-President Julie Gudvangen, provides space planning and cabinetry design for the kitchen, bathroom, entertainment area, basement and mud room (now command center).  Julie’s architectural background and our association with several architectural partners allows us the ability to work with you in planning your addition and provides real time, spot on pricing, be it a simple bump-out to gain much needed space with a minimum of construction, to a complete overview of a phased project. The combination of design expertise and construction experience provides our clientele with the skill sets now in demand as the remodeling industry forges ahead into the 21st century.

  • Interior design for kitchens, bathrooms, entertainment areas, mud rooms and basements
  • Custom cabinetry materials to provide you with unequaled value and craftsmanship

Julie Gudvangen
Owner and Vice-President of Delta Renovations, Inc.
Julie has over twenty five years of experience in the design and construction industry doing what she loves, helping people transform their homes to enrich their family’s daily lives. As a kid, Julie played with Legos; space planning little houses. An interior architecture degree allowed her to take that love and learn the industry while working for architects and a Fortune 100 window company to owning her own design firm, and finally ending up here more than ten years ago, at Delta Renovations, Inc. Julie has found her home, where she can listen to our clients about what they need or dream about, plan a solution, and execute a transformation with the best team of craftsmen in the business.
