Living by the motto “If You Can Dream It, We Can Build It,” employees at Heritage Renovations excel at providing the best service, while also having a little fun. Founded in 1985, the family-owned company takes customers’ creative ideas and brings them to life. Based in Oklahoma City, Heritage Renovations specializes in kitchen and bath remodeling but also prides itself on the custom-built cabinetry used in their renovations.
“We are also highly skilled in attic conversions, room additions, theatre rooms and outdoor kitchens and living areas,” said Leslie Peake, owner and interior designer. “At Heritage Renovations, we strive to provide homeowners with the highest quality home renovations possible.”
So far, her goals have been successful. Peake says 70 percent of her business comes from returning customers or word-of-mouth. Leslie’s husband Dan came from a long line of construction workers and she came from a family of entrepreneurs, so they combined their talents and formed a remodeling company.
“We started out building cabinets for homebuilders, and then went into the home building business ourselves,” she said. “We noticed that there was a need for a reputable, reliable remodeling company in the metro and surrounding areas, so we shifted our focus primarily to the remodeling industry.”
Construction is just one element. “Remodeling is an art form—more than just construction. We must be able to adapt to each individual project and make the new renovation blend with the existing home,” Peake remarked.
One of their more memorable projects was the addition of a second story to one of their client’s homes. “We actually tore the entire roof completely off a house and added a second story, which included two bedrooms, a home theatre and two bathrooms,” Peake said. “The owners found a house in a historic part of Oklahoma City. They hired us to convert the house into the home of their dreams—and we did.”
While this project was one of her favorites, Peake said her dream is to renovate an Art Deco home. “Taking a home back to its original splendor would be a wonderful challenge. The glamour and beauty of the Art Deco era would entail utilizing a large amount of beautiful wood and unique glasswork, along with a vast collection of colors and textures,” Peake reflected. “Envision the house in The Great Gatsby doing a remodel that would rival that would be a blast.”
