Bringing your dream home to life

Kirk Weber has worked in the construction business for more than 25 years, with jobs that took him from New York to California in both commercial and residential sectors. However, nothing has given him more pleasure than opening a business in Falcon three years ago.”KW Home Improvement was a dream turned into reality,” Weber said. Much of Weber’s career has been in commercial construction, often as a construction manager acting as a liaison between businesses and contractors. “I did enjoy it, but I much prefer to work directly with homeowners, making their dreams come true in a remodel or basement finish,” he said.Weber chose Falcon as his home base for several reasons. Allison, his wife of one year, is a teacher at Meridian Ranch Elementary School, and his daughter from a previous marriage lives in the Denver area. Falcon’s rapid growth rate is an added incentive.Weber is hands-on, working only one job at time. “I am a perfectionist and want my clients to know that they have my undivided attention,” he said. Weber hires only licensed and insured subcontractors, such as electrical, plumbing and drywall finishing. Weber said that if a contractor asks the homeowner to get a building permit, the homeowner should decline and call someone else. It’s usually a red flag that the contractor is not licensed, and one can bet there is a good reason for it, he said.What sets him apart from other contractors is attention to detail, Weber said. He listens to his clients’ needs and incorporates their vision into the finished product. “I love the design process,” Weber said. “It’s talking to the client and then making suggestions to them that will make better use of the space and add aesthetic value.”A room can be structurally finished to perfection but also be uninteresting and dull in its concept, he said. Weber takes a different approach. For example, he discusses the extras. For example, it’s not just about covering up low-hanging pipes but also how to make use of the space by “stair stepping” the drywall and using it for plants or cutting out wall sections for built-in bookshelves.”I consider it my job to suggest improvements that will not only give aesthetic value to the home but is also usable space,” Weber said. He also offers suggestions on carpeting, lighting and paint colors to complete the look of the room.Weber specializes in basement finishing, home theaters, wet bars, fireplaces, whole-house or one-room remodels and, from April to October, decks. A typical basement finishing takes Weber from eight to 12 weeks. “I’m at a client’s home for so long that we become personal friends,” he said. “I’m not finished until my client is completely happy.”KW Home Improvements: 448-0232.
