How a company stays in business for more than 25 years isn’t the question; the question for Renaissance Exteriors and Remodeling/Schultz Builders is how do you succeed, grow, and excel in what you do for over 25 years?
For a quarter century, Renaissance Exteriors and Remodeling/Schultz Builders has become not only a trusted and well-respected name in West Michigan, but the family-owned businesses continue to build on their incredible success.
More than 25 years ago, brothers Rich and Jim Schultz founded Schultz Builders, and began building custom homes in West Michigan, along the lakeshore and throughout northern Michigan. A decade later, the brothers figured that if they could build a beautiful custom home from a hole in the ground, they also should be offering their expertise and experience to existing homeowners — so Renaissance Exteriors and Remodeling was born.
Renaissance Exteriors and Remodeling offers a full range of home improvement options including roofing, exteriors (siding, windows, decks, outdoor living) and remodeling (kitchens, baths, basements, additions, garages, four-season porches, and pole barns).
Jim Schultz says that, over the past 25 years, the names Renaissance Exteriors and Remodeling and Schultz Builders have earned a reputation in the area as a quality builder that delivers the best in materials, craftsmanship, value, and customer satisfaction.
What they do best is right in their name: “The name Renaissance means something to us. If you look it up, it means rebirth and revival,” Schultz says. “That’s pretty fitting for what we do with people’s homes, because when we’re done it’s like a rebirth. Whether it’s a roof, a deck, siding, or a kitchen remodel, when we’re done we’re very proud of that project — and it brings an increased value to the home and great pride for the homeowner.”
“We have a labor force that’s pretty unique in the fact that we’ve built relationships for a long time with the people we use on our projects,”

Renaissance Exteriors and Remodeling/Schultz Builders is built around a team of experts who are all highly regarded and exceptional in what they do. And that experience and expertise makes what they do pretty special.
“We have a labor force that’s pretty unique in the fact that we’ve built relationships for a long time with the people we use on our projects,” Jim Schultz says. “We really have a very talented team. We all have our strengths in what we do, and we know how a house goes together. We know the best practices and we know what needs to be done to get the most out of the project.”
Renaissance Exteriors and Remodeling will help make a great first impression inside and/or outside your home by using the highest-quality products and performing the most detail-oriented installations for any remodeling project.
“We want to do a really good job for the community that’s here,” says Sean Bush, a partner with Renaissance Exteriors and Remodeling. “The (clients) come into the relationship with certain expectations, and when we sit down with them we want to listen well and hear their thoughts and ideas. It’s our job to turn that into a reality.
“When we get to the end of a project and do that final walk-through, we not only want to meet their expectations, but exceed them. When we bring our decades of experience to the table, the resources that we have, and our seasoned staff, we want to be thought of as a value.”
It can be hard to put a price on quality of life. How much stress does that extra bathroom relieve at 7 a.m., when everyone is trying to get ready for their day? How much is it worth to have that extra room off the back when the kids want their own space? Will you sleep a little better knowing your new roof isn’t going to leak?
Customers of Schultz Builders and Renaissance Exteriors and Remodeling have been discovering for years that whether a project is big or small, it can have a positive impact on their quality of life.
Mike V. added a new bathroom to his house: “The overall experience was wonderful and the price to add a new bathroom was fair. My family and I will enjoy the finished product for many years to come.”
Tim & Karen H decided on some major renovations, and everyone worked together to overcome the challenges that come with such a big project: “With the number of projects we had going on (roofing, siding, deck, patio), scheduling and coordination of the pieces was a challenge. But in the end, everything looks great and we love the final product. The quality of the work was certainly at or above our expectations.”

Nick K. wanted a small, but very important, project completed: “We had Renaissance replace three old windows in our kitchen. I had very specific specifications of what I was looking for, and they were able to deliver on timing and cost. (They were) very personable and made me feel like my project was their only one, even if it was a small project.”
All of their customers had similar responses: “We’ll definitely come back to them for future projects!”
This is how you stay in business for over 25 years, and how you succeed, grow, and excel in what you do.
