What type of projects do you specialize in?

“Over the last year, we have been doing larger remodeling projects—kitchens, bathrooms, basements, large decks,” said Raymond Valois, who started Valois Home Improvements 15 years ago.

“Projects like kitchen remodels are very detailed and finish-oriented, and suit themselves to my skill set. Dealing with the idiosyncrasies of old and new houses is my strong point. I don’t typically take on full-size additions.” Valois works primarily within a 20-mile radius of Shrewsbury.
