In 1994, Shane DeSmet realized his vision of running his own company, S&D Garage Door and Remodeling. S&D stands for “Shane” & “Denise” – the husband and wife duo that leads this company. Together, the two of them built a highly reputable and successful garage door company. They sold, hung and serviced garage doors for residential homeowners and large companies alike, and worked on garage doors for Twin Cities’ giants such as Target, the Minnesota Twins and the Science Museum.
As S&D began to grow, Shane seized the opportunity to expand beyond garage doors and into home remodeling and house flipping. His remodeling roots go back to when he was 12, where he learned the trade from a neighbor who owned his own company.
Why expand in this way? Simply put, Shane knew the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area needed an experienced, knowledgeable remodeler who could deliver quality service without charging excessive prices.
There is no hiding it: the construction industry gets a bad rap. Shane chips away at the negativity with each new customer he encounters. He is upfront about costs, honest about potential complications, clear about timelines for completion, and transparent about his processes. He wants his customers educated so they can make informed choices.
Moreover, Shane refuses to low-ball a bid just to get a project, only to then turn around and submit numerous change orders that drive up the price once the contract is signed. And, thanks to the team of experienced, reliable subcontractors that Shane has amassed, he knows that each project he manages will turn out just as envisioned, if not better.
No matter the remodeling project we take on, from kitchens and bathrooms to basements and garages, we make sure we go through all the details with a fine-tooth comb. We make it our business to know and understand city code requirements, all the latest in today’s “green” methods, current trends in layouts and design, and much more. We use our knowledge and our decades of experience to craft a finished product that leaves each customer pleased with the end result.
