On the job with… Advantage Remodel


Last updated on July 2nd, 2019 at 10:55 am

Crews with Advantage Remodel LLC and partner companies could be found making renovations to a New Berlin home on a recent morning. The work being performed that day included installation of quartz countertop in the kitchen and tiling of the new master bathroom in the three-bedroom, two-bathroom house.

They will also be moving the staircase by about eight feet, and installing new windows and siding.

“This is essentially a whole-home remodel,” said Andy Schafer, a partner at New Berlin-based Advantage Remodel. Pointing out where the stairs used to be, he added, “the goal was to give him a whole open concept.”

Advantage Remodel, a member of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry Milwaukee, primarily serves customers in suburban Milwaukee, such as New Berlin, Elm Grove and Wauwatosa. Schafer and fellow partner Greg Wade started the company in 2009.

  1. Dustin Kohnert of Advantage Remodel cuts tile, which will eventually be placed in the home’s new master bathroom.
  2. Mike Przybyla and Chris Perleberg, both of subcontractor K.G. Stevens Inc., install a large section of kitchen countertop.
  3. Perleberg cuts countertop backsplash before installing it in the kitchen.
  4. Jason Dellar of Advantage Remodel installs tile in the shower stall of the new master bathroom.
  5. A level and cordless drill sit on top of a section of new quartz kitchen countertop.
  6. Przybyla ensures a section of the counter is level prior to installing the quartz countertop.
