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, owner
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.

Bryn started out very early in his life learning the art of craftsmanship and after 15 years of experience has become extremely proficient. Bryn’s father was in business as a custom furniture builder, fine finish carpenter, and renovator of old homes. Bryn started out at a very early age learning the art of fine woodworking, home renovations, and remodeling. He naturally took to it and loved it. His level of finishing details is very impressive. Bryn is a rare individual who brings not only extensive skills in every facet of Remodeling, but also fantastic problem solving skills and attention to detail.
“I feel fortunate to be part of the team at Scott Hall Remodeling. In all the years I have been in this field, I have never encountered the kind of culture that is here. Scott seems to be as interested in his employees well-being just as much as their skills and talents. I know that my leadership and skills have grown so much in this company and it really does feel like much more than a job. I feel like I am growing professionally and personally.” - Bryn Hanover
Mike Salvatori, Bathroom Project Specialist
Mike Salvatori has been in the residential home construction field for over 18 years. His years as a high end interior trim carpenter helped refine his sense of detail and finish. His family has a large influence on his career. His father, uncle a master carpenter, grandfather introduced Mike to the field of home remodeling and construction at an early age. Customer service is a top priority for Mike, and it all begins with his respect of the project homes. ” People work hard for the things they have, and they deserve the same respect I would expect from any person hired to work in my own home.” He is a naturally artistic person and uses his mix of art and detail to create the best possible outcome for your next remodeling project.
“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
Joe has a passion for making every home special to its owner. He learned contracting skills from his father-in-law before coming to Columbus, where he restored a 1927 Dutch Colonial. Volunteering with his daughters schools and sports teams has given him an added wealth of experience in problem solving, even repairing a 55 year-old stage for a school production of “The Music Man.” Since standing at his grandfather’s work table, Joe loved classic craftsmanship; working with older houses taught him how to bring modern amenities to traditional spaces.
“I was a customer when I first met Scott – back in 2004. We were remodeling our west-side Columbus home, built in 1905. There were some very complicated situations in the bathroom; I searched for someone that had the skill and could help me handle the complexity of such a project. Scott did not disappoint. He listened to input from my wife and I, spotted problems we hadn’t anticipated, and delivered a bath that both fit our style and exceeded our vision. After that, I knew I wanted to be on Scott’s team.” – Joe Decker
