Lee Wallender

Lee Wallender has 17 years of experience in home remodeling.  For the last decade, he has been a full-time freelance home remodeling writer.


In 2000, Lee first jumped into home renovation when he pulled back the carpet of his freshly-purchased 1913 farmhouse-style home in Washington, DC to see if there was solid hardwood underneath.  He has been remodeling ever since.  

In-between writing articles about home improvement, he slips away to finish basements, install floors, paint walls, take down walls, do electrical work, and everything else related to home remodeling.



Experience in remodeling homes on a DIY basis and by hiring capable professionals and 10 years as a writer specializing in home remodeling topics.
