Want to turn your house into a home you love?

You move into a house. But it’s the experiences that you share together there that make it a home.

And it’s the spaces you create there that allow those experiences to flourish.

You end up loving the home as well as the memories and the people you share them with.

At Litwiller, it is our job to help you shape your spaces into beautiful, functional rooms that enhance your lifestyle.

We’ve been helping Calgary homeowners do just that for over four decades.

Let's Talk
Home Renovations Calgary

We believe in seeing projects through with high-quality craftsmanship and personal service at every stage.

Peace of mind

You can trust our established and respected Calgary renovators with all work backed by warranties.


We’re used to helping Calgary homeowners on tight budgets – and keeping within them!

Safety & Care

Clean work environments that ensure the safety of your family, your property, and our team.

Recent Projects

Bring your ideas to life – just like in these recent projects we’ve managed for Calgary homeowners.

Home Office Addition

We did a complete overhaul of this home addition and turned it into a professional office.

It is completely separate and isolated from the main house. That means it can be potentially turned into a rental suite, personal or business office, or commercial rental office.

But for now, the owner of this suite is proudly using it as his own office space.

This fully renovated office is decked out with a kitchenette that can be easily converted to a full loft-style kitchen, full bathroom, private and separate entrance and plenty of room to show off his prized possessions.

Edgemont Elegance

The entire main floor of this Edgemont home received an injection of elegance from our renovations team.

The windows, kitchen, bathroom and fireplace were given a new lease of life.

We also arranged engineer-approved structural alterations for a vaulted ceiling that opened up the space entirely.

Beyond this, the highlights are a practical two-chef kitchen layout, extra conveniences, and high-quality classic cabinetry.

Our renovations should keep the owners happy in their home for years and banish any thoughts of moving or downsizing.

Fun & Bright Tuxedo

Sometimes, simple renovations are not enough.

The new home is alive with colour, light, energy, and fun and now stands out as one of the most beautiful properties on the street.

We helped them demolish the existing structure and build a new custom home on their lot, where space was a premium.

Of particular note is the eyebrow window for a better view of the street below, the basement addition we completed recently, and the solar panels on the roof.

The staggered studs on exterior walls also improve energy efficiency, as do the triple-pane windows.

Meet the Leader of the Pack

Meet The Chief

If David Litwiller rocks up to your place on his Harley, don’t be alarmed by the deep rumble of the engine.

You’ll find him much more quietly spoken than his bike. Incredibly young looking too.

In fact, you’ll meet a friendly, approachable guy with a listening ear.

He’s happy for you to do the talking about your vision and the home renovations you’re considering – until you need his professional opinion.

Having been in the home renovations business since 1977, he has a fair few ideas about how to achieve what you want.

He’s the founder and head project manager of Litwiller Renovations and has been responsible for building over 30 homes and renovating hundreds in Calgary.

It’s a real small business success story for the local area.

Overseeing every project personally, David is rightly regarded as one of Calgary’s most trusted custom home builders and renovators.

Many homeowners call him back for further work years after the initial project has been successfully completed.

The Litwiller Process

Working with us is as easy as 1-2-3:

01You contact us

Contact us to begin the conversation. If the scope of work, timing, and budget are right for both parties, we will gather some initial information and arrange a convenient time to visit your home.

02We visit you

During our visit, we will assess your space(s), discuss more about what you want, and provide recommendations. It will be followed up with a written estimate including a target start date.

03We transform your home

Upon acceptance, we sign the agreement, perform a final check of scope, and agree on dates to begin. We then manage the project from start to finish until you are entirely satisfied at the walkthrough.

Needless to say, after each renovation project is completed, we leave your home as clean as we found it. Sometimes cleaner!

Our Clients Say

Our clients often call us back repeatedly to renovate their homes – sometimes even houses that we built for them decades ago!

We chose Litwiller to initiate a long term relationship with a high quality renovation company. 

Renovations always entail follow up visits immediately after completion date and months later. Litwiller has met each request on a timely and professional basis including a pocket door repair four years after our renovation was completed. 

The home we chose is expected to be our residence for decades, so choosing Litwiller was extremely important to us and we are very satisfied with our decision.


Committed, respectful, and responsive: working with Litwiller was more than we ever expected. 

As our first major home renovation, we knew what we wanted, needed, and could afford, but we didn’t know what we didn’t know and this was terrifying to us. The Litwiller team removed this fear. 

For our family, working with Litwiller was definitely worth it. Not only would we recommend them without hesitation, but we will use them for all future renovations.

Angie & Jose

I decided to renovate my 1950’s bungalow in Renfrew. 

I chose David Litwiller because of the style of his renovations. After conferring with David, a major renovation was started by adding a sunroom, with a partial basement, new kitchen and composite deck off this addition. 

David had great advice and ideas, handled all the City requirements, and trades. The place looked fabulous. After a few years I had him come back and add a carport. 

I was so happy with my experience I decided to hire David to build my new house in Tuxedo.
