About Top-Notch Renovations

Robert and Lana renovated their own homes and several “flips” on the side while pursuing successful careers in IT and market research. They came to discover a true personal passion for home renovation and recognized a need in the NW Austin market for reputable residential renovation services. Since taking the leap to found Top-Notch Renovations in 2007, they haven’t looked back.

After over 10 years as professionals in the industry, they are more committed than ever to serving the area as reliable, quality renovators and are proud of their excellent reputation. As the parents of three sons, Robert and Lana’s commitment to their NW Austin community extends beyond Top-Notch Renovations as they volunteer with RRISD schools, Boy Scouts of America and their local swim team, among other organizations.

We take pride in our top-notch craftsmanship, honest communication, and commitment to thrilling our clients. We look forward to working with you. – The Top-Notch Team
