About R.B. Schwarz

rbs_portraitRobert excels in remodeling homes and building additions in Shaker Heights, Cleveland Heights, and other historic neighborhoods on Cleveland’s East side. With more than 30 years of repairing, restoring and remodeling homes in the greater Cleveland area, he is well respected among his colleagues in the remodeling industry. His award-winning restorations and renovations have been featured by the National Association Remodeling Industry (NARI)  in Cleveland, in the East Central region and on the national level. His credentials also speak highly of his master skill level: Master Certified Remodeler and Certified Remodeling Project Manager.


In 1987, Robert Schwarz launched his own general contracting firm R.B. Schwarz Inc., General Contractor. After years of repairing historic homes and buildings so they would successfully pass city inspections, Robert set his sights on remodeling. In 2006, Robert earned his Certified Remodeler (CR) title from the National Association of Remodeling Industry (NARI). In 2018, he completed the requirements for his Master Certified Remodeler (MCR) and has been awarded this certification. These both require completing 12-week comprehensive courses followed by exams. By passing these exams his industry knowledge and skills have been tested and proven to be excellent in more than 20 remodeling task areas including: business codes, construction law, planning, building site layout and remodeling trade skills.

Robert brings to every job a meticulous attention to detail that borders on perfectionism. He and his hard-working team of conscientious subcontractors all reflect the same attention to detail, honesty and professionalism. “I’ve learned to expect the unexpected. We know how to deal with it — and we do it right,” Robert says.
