Discover IT

Schedule a call and we will begin the PROCESS.

What is DISCOVER IT?  It's the phase of your  PROJECT where we'll talk about your hopes and dreams as well as your frustrations and annoyances with your space. You'll hear about our process and how we can help you REVIVE your home.

Assemble IT

During the ASSEMBLE IT phase, we'll navigate the planning of your project.  We'll bring in a designer if necessary, subcontractors, and tradespeople to help flesh out the details of what and how the project will be accomplished.  We'll walk you through the process of choosing a  layout, fixtures and finishes and solidify the plan so you know what to expect all along the way.

Revive It

This is both the scary and exhilarating part of the process where we take everything we learned during the DIscover It phase, along with the plan developed during the Assemble It phase and begin construction on site. You'll be kept abreast of the project through regular updates and kept in the loop all along the way.

Experience it

Finally the moment we've all been waiting for, the handoff.  The Experience It Phase is where we pull back the curtain and reveal the final product. You move your things back into the space and enjoy the space that you envisioned all along. But this isn't the last you'll hear from us, we follow-up regularly to ensure that everything continues to meet your expectations and if it doesn't we make it right. We're in the business to build lifelong relationships with homeowners just like you and be your first call for all your home improvement and repair needs.


Revive Contracting started as a small carpentry company in the Germantown neighborhood of North West Philadelphia. It grew out of Michael's 20 yrs of experience working in framing and finish carpentry coupled with his interest and appreciation for the attention to detail and craftsmanship of days gone by. Starting with a typical Germantown carriage house purchased for his family in 2013 he began to see the great potential there was in highlighting and bringing back to life the charm and beauty of the varied styles of the historic neighborhoods in North West Philadelphia.

Five years later he translated that interest and curiosity into a company called AR Custom Carpentry.  ARCC worked with homeowners and developers alike to maintain, remodel and restore homes and repurpose buildings in Nice Town, Germantown, Mt Airy, Roxborough and Allegheny West neighborhoods.

In late 2020 ARCC evolved into a full service contracting company and Revive Contracting was born. 

Revive Contracting exists to assist homeowners breathe new life into their older homes.  We believe in honoring the craftsmanship and quality of the past while updating homes with newer technology in building materials when appropriate.  Whether it's restoring original windows, to matching existing trim or remodeling a master suite. Revive Contracting has the experience and knowledge to help you with your next home project and reduce the stress typically associated with home improvement.
