Tammy Kemnetz​


I began my search for a contractor by following businesses on FaceBook. Rust and Sawdust caught my attention right away as he published remodels before, during and after the job. 

His personal involvement with the project really resonated with me and my personally. From our first meeting I could tell Justin saw my vision and heard my needs for my new kitchen space and bathroom. The communication never stopped.

He emailed daily and also kept the project software app up to date. My project finished 2 months ahead of schedule. He also worked VERY HARD to insure I had a functioning kitchen for the Christmas Holiday. 

I welcome you to review my projects before and after photos. You will be astonished. I would recommend Rust and Sawdust for any of your remodeling needs. It’s all about the details which Justin masters with ease.


Julie Waterman​


We hired Justin and Adria to renovate our 70’s kitchen. They helped us design every aspect of the project.

We especially appreciated the selections they came up with, which saved us from the excruciating task of shopping for every item.

Justin and his subcontractors were always prompt and professional. Justin is a great communicator and always kept us in the loop.

Taking on this major project during a pandemic created unexpected hiccups. Justin went above and beyond to solve situations out of his control.

We give Rust and Sawdust a 5-star rating! We will certainly contact them with any future projects! Great people to work with!

Type Of Upgrades And Materials

With so many kitchen remodeling options out there, choosing the options that make the most sense for your particular needs can be daunting. You’ll get our constant guidance regarding materials, upgrades, and the best extra features on the market, all while keeping your renovation within your budget.

Here are some of the most popular upgrades.

Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen cabinets take up the most space in the room, so they’ll set the style and mood of the entire kitchen. These can be:

Wood cabinet with small shelves for wine bottles
White kitchen cabinets with black hardware


Flooring is another upgrade that has a great impact on the overall look of your space. Most kitchens we’ve worked on here in Wausau had wood floors that spread throughout the house. If you want to keep these, we can do a quick refinish, but know that wood floors in a space that sees a lot of traffic might not be ideal.

As a great alternative, luxury vinyl plank is the preferred choice of our customers. These engineered vinyl planks mimick any wood species’ natural look. They’re also more durable and resistant and easier to maintain.

For an upscale kitchen floor, go for Italian porcelain tile, but keep in mind that you’ll pay more for the materials and installation.

Drop-in sinks and undermount sinks are the favorite options among our customers.

What significantly boosts the functionality of the sink is actually the faucet. Extendable faucets with different water pressure levels allow you to be much more efficient and save a lot of water at the same time.

Changing the cabinets means you’ll need to replace the countertops as well, as most often the dimensions will be different.

For countertops, the best material out there would be quartz. This manufactured stone is resistant to heat, durable, and tough, making it ideal for a high-traffic kitchen. In addition, high-quality quartz has no veins, which makes your kitchen look elegant and sleek.

Some other alternatives would be granite tops, concrete counters, marble, or butcher blocks.

Frequently Asked Questions
