Stu Cavner and Steve Shattuck and their wonderful crew just finished building our 1600sq ft home in Lowell. We are beyond pleased with the entire process of working with Innovative and their great subcontractors. We’re so appreciative of their craftsmanship, professionalism, creativity, and attention to detail. We thank the good Lord for Innovative Builders and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a trustworthy team of professionals who do superior work.


Innovative Builders & Remodelers is a high quality firm. The employees who provided the work on our kitchen each worked as if THEY owned the company, and treated my house as if it were their own home in the quality of their work and in the cleanliness of the place when they went home. 5 pm was not necessarily quitting time, rather they went home when whatever project they were working on was completed. The sub-contractors were also top notch. They came when they were scheduled. And when on rare occasions they were held up on another job and were going to be late or needed to reschedule, they called to let me know. Communication is a high value for me when working with contractors. I made that known up front, and they always respected it. Not only would I recommend this firm, I plan to hire them again this year!

We have had a number of remodeling project done at our house over the past 17 years. The two projects we just had completed by Innovative Builders were by far the best in quality, cost, responsiveness, and outstanding customer service. We would highly recommend their services to friends and family without any reservation.

Stu, Matt, Eric and Caleb were all great to work with. They did everything they could to make the building process go smoothly. From Caleb and Eric moving a bush prior to the start of construction to Stu putting up the light on my back of my house at the end, everyone was more than helpful. I was thankful to be kept informed by Don as to when workers would be coming to my house. Most of the sub-contractors were very professional and did great work. Stu pays great attention to details and insisted that everything be done correctly and completely. I would recommend them to anyone who has a construction project in mind.

I enjoyed the easy going yet professional way the team has of doing business. They all has a very professional attitude towards their craft and want nothing more than to present the perfect finished product to their customers and yet they are very personable and fun to work with. Not one of them was flustered when we hit a challenge they simply worked around the obstacle to ensure the end product was what I was expecting. Stu was an absolute joy to work with and I now consider him a friend. Travis and Matt were at the top of my “go to” list for multiple projects and Don was always available to keep me updated on the paperwork/scheduling side of the project. I had heard many horror stories from friends who had their home built but my experience with Innovative was a dream. Naturally, there were unexpected surprises here and there but nothing that wasn’t easily remedied. I have recommended them to many friends for projects big and small and will only use Innovative for future projects at my new home. When people ask me if I would ever build a house again, my answer is always a resounding yes and that is all thanks to the team at Innovative. I can’t thank them enough for making my Dream Home a reality.


Stu was honest and friendly. Very thorough in making sure we looked at every possibility for repair/replacing the window. He brought an extra person out to also check it out prior to making a decision. The guys that came and installed were friendly and clean. And the painter was also very friendly and clean. A great experience! The window looks beautiful. I also am impressed that being a woman, I didn’t feel pressured or like I was being taken advantage of for “anything I don’t know about windows or construction”. I was very comfortable with everyone involved.


Everyone put with my constant photographing! The workers were pleasant and very hard working, and Troy was especially helpful and informative.

Very pleased with Innovative Builders & Remodelers’ work on two small jobs in our Rockford condo. They were punctual, friendly, professional, and got the job done quickly and correctly. I highly recommend them.


I wanted to write to tell you, again what wonderful work you do! We went to our cottage over the weekend – had not been there since Thanksgiving.  We were prepared for the worst – leaking roof, frozen water pipes, etc.  I tip-toed around when I first arrived, scared to death of what I might find.  Behold – our house was in PERFECT shape.  No water, no critters, no leaks, no nothin’!  We have you and your wonderful crew to thank for rebuilding our home to withstand even this winter.  If ever you need a referral for a client just call us.

Happy Homeowner

Innovative Builders & Remodelers designed my new bathroom and laundry room. The design has worked out great! They totally redid them both putting a door in between. By moving one sink into the laundry room we opened up enough room for a large tile shower plus a perfect soak tub. They did a beautiful job, couldn’t be happier!
