Teamwork is key to delivering a quality customer experience and it takes time and effort to build the right team of craftspersons who also have great interpersonal relationship skills. I really trust and appreciate the abilities that each of our members bring to our team.
Scott Hall, President
I started Scott Hall Remodeling in 1999 here in Central Ohio. I had a fairly diverse background up to that point which I did not realize at the time had been preparing me for starting a remodeling business. I have always been a detailed-oriented person with a love for good quality design, and a sensitivity for the art inside of things. I have always felt that the quality of exchanges that occur between people are the most important elements of life. In the mid 1990’s I served in the role of a full-time counselor to at-risk teenagers which taught me a tremendous amount about myself, understanding other people’s needs, and working out solutions cooperatively with others.
Throughout my childhood I was fascinated with figuring out how things worked. Both my Father and Grandfather had an impact in my career directions. My father was a carpenter, an electrician, and later went on to lead an Engineering Team at Ford Motor Company. My Grandfather started operated Dana Construction in Port Clinton, Ohio from the early 60’s to the 1980’s. I spent considerable time with him learning about Construction. After Graduating from High School in 1990, I went on to study Engineering, Psychology, and worked in different capacities in these fields. But it was my childhood love for building that my Grandfather supported in me that many years later would lead to the beginning of our remodeling business. My biggest satisfaction comes from assisting and guiding my clients to help them get what they want in an environment which creates comfort and trust during the process.

”Working with Scott Hall Remodeling has been wonderful. It’s easy to underestimate the amount of choices that need to be made in a bathroom (or kitchen) remodeling project: Granite, Tile, Cabinets, fixtures, colors, finishes, textures, etc. I really enjoy helping people sift through all of these variables to really help make the project their own, a space they will find joy in for years to come.” –Ali Souder

“Scott Hall has impressed me more than any other contractor I have worked with in the past ten years. In a field that is so “bottom line” driven, where people are encouraged to take shortcuts or skip steps if it saves a dollar or two. It is so refreshing to work with someone who is truly driven by customers service. His organization and creativity are a rare combination to find in a single person. His willingness to use new media and innovation to improve his business is very impressive. He makes a concerted effort to stay ahead of the curve as far as design and materials to give his customers the best possible outcome. His communication with his customers and his employees is the best I’ve seen. I count it a privilege to be part of his team.” – Mike Salvatori

Pete Mossman, Field Technician
Pete first got a feel for the construction field in 2010 when he spent a week in New Orleans helping rebuild houses from hurricane Katrina. He felt the need to return a year later, but stayed for 2 months this time. A few years later Pete was able to land a job remodeling bathrooms. In these couple years He was able to really get the hang of remodeling as a full time job and started to find a hobby out of recycling pallets to make different pieces of furniture. Pete is creative in his ability to think outside the box in order to get the job where he wants it to be. He has really loved to take pride in the work he has been able to do remodeling houses, or even at home building tables.
“Right off the bat I found something interesting about this company. Maybe it was Scott’s welcoming demeanor or the innovative approach that he takes with finding new jobs. I know for sure the environment of the team at Scott Hall is what showed me that they weren’t just another mainstream remodeling company. They know the status quo and demand to be above it. That is what excites me about continue to grow with this company and contribute in any way I can to this team”. – Pete Mossman
