Jeff Augustine

Owner/Project Manager


Established in the fall of 1999 and based in Madison, Wisconsin, A Better Home is a full-service design and remodeling company owned and operated by Jeff Augustine.

Working with his family on their own house in the early 70’s as a child, Jeff had gained experience installing sub-flooring (with grandpa’s help), mixing concrete, and hauling lumber. He put himself through college working for a small Madison remodeling company as a crewman and has been involved with the Madison remodeling industry since 1998. His work has since been featured in Brava Magazine and The Wisconsin State Journal. In addition, Jeff is currently studying to become a certified Photovoltaic (solar panel) installer through the Midwest Renewable Energy Association.

Mario Adame

Carpentry Team

Mario is one of our excellent carpenters at A Better Home. He’s ready and willing to help in any way he can and is our “jack of all trades”. Mario enjoys working at ABH because of the relationships he’s built with his coworkers.

His favorite type of remodeling project is working on additions. He enjoys the hands-on work additions require and loves seeing the drastic change at the end of the project. Mario’s great work ethic is his biggest strength, often staying on the job site well past quitting time.

In his free time, Mario loves playing with his two dogs, napping and indulging in Italian food.
