Washington Remodeler’s Success Stems from Enhanced Communication

Dave Myllymaki is the NAHB Remodeler of the Month for March.

Dave Myllymaki was born to become a remodeler, partly because he grew up in a home that had a “never-ending list of remodeling projects to be done,” he says. Throughout his childhood, he learned about the process of remodeling and gradually developed a passion for the craft.

“You could say this career chose me,” said Myllymaki, now owner of ReNew Creations, LLC in Battle Ground, Wash. “I love what I do and I’m constantly striving to find ways to further improve.”

His knack for building and refining a successful business strategy, as well as his drive to stay involved with his local remodelers council have earned Myllymaki the honor of being named the NAHB Remodeler of the Month for March.

“The greatest opportunities are connecting with the right customers and making their remodeling experiences more enjoyable,” explained Myllymaki in a recent Q&A with Qualified Remodeler magazine. “Much of this boils down to communication enhancements through technology — whether through Facebook, Instagram, project management software or 3-D modeling software.”

Myllymaki not only values enhanced communication with his clients, but also with his fellow members of the local remodelers council. They frequently network with each other, and often collaborate with local government officials to improve the business environment in their region. Their most recent initiative involved ways to streamline the permitting process.

“We began a dialogue with some of our head officials last summer, and we are currently following up with them to see our proposal through,” Myllymaki said. “This would bring benefits to contractors, home owners and county government alike by simplifying and standardizing some of the processes that seem misaligned in our county.”
