About Us
Winkelman Design has been remodeling Columbus homes for thirty-five years with a particular focus on the diverse homes of Clintonville; as well as Upper Arlington, Bexely, Dublin, and Worthington, and the architecturally specific neighborhoods of German Village and Victorian Village. We do quality remodeling with a focus on detail.

We specialize in finding solutions to making your existing home fit your present needs and lifestyle, as well as planning for future growth as your lifestyle changes. We will gladly help with minor maintenance items or redo that bathroom or kitchen you've always wanted. But we have also successfully created and executed up to ten-year plans for clients staging their renovations so they met both their family needs and their financial means.

We are licensed, bonded and insured. We are adept at working with neighborhood architectural revue committees as well as local building departments. We create all our own plans and drawings for all our projects so that you can clearly see exactly how things will look.

We are a small company so we can give personal attention to your project. Leo Winkelman personally does all consultations as well as all the designs. He also personally supervises all projects. When you hire us, you get us. We still do much of the work ourselves and we also have great subcontractors who have worked with us for years. Our remodeling crews are professional and courteous. We take great pride in keeping a neat, clean, and tidy job site keeping the impact on the rest of the house to a minimum. We are great with pets and children and are respectful of your privacy. We never forget that where we work is not just a house, but it's your home.

We are very open with our pricing, itemizing all components so you know exactly what everything costs, even our overhead and profit is spelled out. We try to take the mystery out of remodeling bids so you can compare costs in a straight up fashion. We are also very adept at designing within your budget to give you the most work for what you can afford.

We hope you give us an opportunity to meet with you and help you with your remodeling needs. Call and set up an appointment today, the consult is free.
