Founder of Atlanta Remodeling & Construction, Dieter brings 15 years of experience in general contracting with a determination to break the mold of the industry by centering his company mission on advocating for the client and leading a team that strives to deliver projects in an exceptional manner by embracing both quality and passion. He understands this is severely lacking in the industry and has built a proven track record in both residential and commercial projects driven through referrals.
Originally from Lima, Peru; Dieter moved to the United States as a child. As an adult, he excelled in business development through his passion for improving on the consumer to business experience. Born to a family of entrepreneurs, Dieter followed in those footsteps and went into business with his father and sister in the summer of 1999. Together they launched Paint Etc.; the sister company to what is now Atlanta Remodeling & Construction. Years later in 2014, he founded ARC with the same mission in mind which has experienced continued growth year after year supporting both Atlanta area homes and businesses.
