Building Trust

A Home Renovation Company That Takes Pride In Its Craftmanship

When homeowners in Tennessee want to remodel their homes, they seek a company they can trust to make their visions a reality. “We've been in business for 42 years, and we’ve built that trust,” says Mark Williams, founder and owner of RSU Contractors. “We specialize in remodeling, and our employees know how to work in someone’s  home and leave it better than they found it.”

Company employees are on site every day managing projects to ensure work is being done correctly every step of the way. “Our people have been with us a long time and take pride in what they do,” he says.

Each project is customized for every single homeowner and house. At the end of last year, RSU completed a huge renovation in Arrington, and the owners could not be happier. “The Jones’ house was originally just a ranch-style house,” says production manager, Jim Walker. “Today, it’s a contemporary modern ranch.”

The great room, which has a combined living room, dining room and kitchen, now has large windows and is filled with light. “The owners were looking for an open space, and since it was a late 80s build, there were lots of interior walls dividing the space and the ceilings were only eight feet high,” he says. “Now, the ceiling soars at just around 22 feet.”

The kitchen, with its modern appliances and huge center island, is perfect for a family. Instead of a traditional backsplash, it has a stylish brick composition.

The primary bedroom also underwent an amazing transformation. “The footprint of the bedroom basically stayed the same; we just made it more modern with a chair rail and upgraded trim,” says Jim. “We also added two windows and raised the ceiling height from eight to nine feet.”

The en suite bathroom has been upgraded to a luxurious spa-like space.

RSU also remodeled the home office, the kids’ rooms and bathrooms, the guest bedroom, created a bonus room with lots of storage, and extended the living space to the outdoors. “The outdoor living space is off of the great room and kitchen area,” he says. “It has a beadboard ceiling and lots of stonework with an overlaid stamped concrete floor. It extends the living area to the outside, expanding the entertaining space.”

The massive fireplace also keeps things cozy.

“The homeowners were very particular about how they wanted the outcome to look,” says Jim. “I believe we hit their vision.”
