Houston-based SWMJ Construction announced that they will no longer only be a government rehabilitation and remodeling and small to medium commercial construction group; the company will enter the residential remodeling industry because, the company says, the Houston market has started to recover.
According to the Houston Chronicle, the housing market in Houston sales and prices have both risen 7.8 percent in March. The general upswing of the area market has made business expansion for companies like SWMJ a possibility for the first time since the housing boom in 2007.
Although the market is seeing stabilization many people are looking for a way to make the homes that they already own into the new space they desire.
“We are very excited to help Houstonians realize that their dream space is the one they’re already living in every day,” said Marc Jungers, president of SWMJ. “Customers do not need to move when they use our remodeling and renovation experts to expand upon or alter their current space.”
SWMJ managers say that their main goal is to build a quality construction project that exceeds their clients’ expectations. The company spent the last five years involved in the rehabilitation and reconstruction projects funded by the government of nearly 600 homes across the greater Houston area. Some of their experiences include over 260 homes through the Harris County Homeowner’s Disaster Recovery Program (HDRP), a $65 million project to enable eligible Harris county County homeowners to repair or reconstruct homes that sustained significant damage from Hurricane Ike.
The company is also credited with the reconstruction of 256 homes through the Texas Homeowners Assistance Program (THAP), a single-family assistance program for individuals within 22 designated counties whose homes were damaged by Hurricane Rita in Texas Gulf Coast area, as well as numerous government rehab projects throughout the city of Houston and Montgomery counties.
