Great Day Improvements acquires Your Home Improvement Company

Ohio-based Great Day Improvements continues to expand its direct-to-consumer portfolio with the purchase of Your Home Improvement Company, adding an eighth member to its family of brands and its first since buying Champion Windows in December 2021.

For Great Day Improvements, the investment signals an expansion into the northern United States and strategic growth in the bathroom remodeling space. In addition to Your Home Improvement Company and Champion windows, Great Day boasts a lineup of brands that includes Patio Enclosures, Universal Windows Direct, Apex Energy Solutions, Stanek Windows, Hartshorn Custom Contracting, and The Bath Authority. The deal with Your Home Improvement Company was announced on November 21, 2022.

“When we consider growth opportunities, we look for companies that are the right fit geographically and that offer the right products,” said Great Day Improvement’s Chief Executive Officer Michael Hoy. “More importantly, the company has to have the right culture and the right leadership team, because we are keeping everybody and not looking to cut heads. Steve Little and his team at Your Home Improvement Company culturally fit with us really well.”

Minnesota-based Your Home Improvement Company was founded in 2004 and has been recognized as the largest full-service home improvement company in the northern U.S., with locations spanning 10 states. Its product offerings include interior and exterior solutions ranging from replacement windows and doors to roofing and bathroom remodeling, the latter of which represents a product Great Day Improvements has set its sights on for future growth.

“They had more of a bath presence than we currently have,” Hoy said of Your Home Improvement Company. “And we were really interested in that one-day bath business.”

Your Home Improvement Company president Steve Little will continue to lead his team and will work with Hoy and senior executives at Great Day to find ways to pull growth levers to help them grow faster.
