Get To Know Dream Home Construction
When we started the company, we set out with a simple goal: to be the best home remodeler in the Cleveland area. To achieve this goal, we knew that quality, creativity, and client care were keys to success. “Is there a better way to do this?” became our guiding principle. Even today, we are constantly seeking ways to improve our company level of quality from top to bottom.
We are “hands-on” owners, and our clients know that they will always be able to talk to one of us if a problem arises. We always tell our clients to get five bids, take the most expensive and least expensive and throw those away. With those that remain, check references, check with your city to see if they are registered contractors, and finally, always go with the company with whom you feel most comfortable.

Scott’s family has always been in the construction field. He wanted to start his own company, knowing that if you can work hard, you can achieve anything.
What are your hobbies/interests?
One of our main hobbies and interests is hot rod cars; we collect cars and (re)build them. Scott and our son built a 1955 Ford F100 truck from the ground up! We love going to car shows and spending time as a family, boating, and fishing at our cottage. Our family has been involved with the Cub Scouts and the Boy Scouts for the past 10 years. We enjoy spending the time with our son Matthew who became an Eagle Scout in December 2016. Working with the boys has given us satisfaction, knowing that we were helping to motivate them to become respectable young men, and develop positive values that will carry over into their adult careers. We are still involved with the Eagle Scout projects. We believe it takes a village to help one another, and have been helping the Santa Hide Away in Bundysburg (more information on this is available at the website).

Scott, You’re the best!! My new in-law suite is perfect for my Mother in law. She is enjoying very much.

My glamour bathroom is beautiful, thank you for making my dream come true! Your staff, especially Yvonne has made this remodel very easy for us..
Thank you for the beautiful railing on my second-floor porch.
Thanks again for doing such great work on our lower level. The design of the new family room and all the detailed mill-work makes a real impact when people walk down stairs and the fireplace makes the room seem very warm and homey. Also once again we have a wine cellar that makes a statement. It is Both functional and interesting and the mill-work, stone wall, lighting and slate floor give it a sort of “old world” feel. It makes you want to.. well- drink some good wine! You and the crew were great to work with and it is always fun the enjoy the outcome.
We love the work you have done with our attic renovation and outside projects. We could not be happier with the finished product – a library and home office that we can be proud of and enjoy for many years to come!
We never had a single worry or doubt about the quality of the work, timeless of the job, or professionalism of all concerned parties. One of the most amazing aspects of the work Scott Burton orchestrated was the time in which it was completed. From start to finish, Scott ran an honest, driven, through, professional and openly I recommend his expertise and company without reservation.
Scott & Yvonne,
We are very pleased with all the work! After many disappointing experiences , we can hardly believe we found a contractor that works within a stated time frame and truly cares about the quality of the work right down to the most minute details!
Thank you for kindness and dedication is what makes you such wonderful people.
It can rain from now on and you will not hear a single grouchy word from John or me. Our repair was so quick, so painless and has left us with waterfall is a distant memory. We feel reborn! Thank you both, Yvonne and Scott, and a special thanks to Specialized Concrete for their superior quality and responsive work. We are such happy campers that I will pass on your name to everyone who is currently underwater in Shaker Hts. Thank you again!
It is always fun to enjoy the outcome. Almost makes us want to buy another home and work on another basement.
