Payne & Tompkins Design-Renovation

Our Passion and Our Story

Dave Payne and Dean Tompkins have been working together since their college days at Ohio
State dating back to the mid 90’s. This long-time collaboration, including almost 20 years of collaborating with Mike and Eric Payne at Payne & Payne Builders, laid the groundwork for their successful home remodeling business, Payne
& Tompkins Design-Renovation, located in Chardon, Ohio.
The success of Payne & Tompkins is in part due to Dave and Dean’s tried and true tactic of dividing tasks
based on their unique skill sets. Dave oversees high level operations, while Dean manages back-end systems
and processes— a partnership they discovered as fellow mechanical engineering students working together to
complete their coursework.
The entire team at Payne & Tompkins takes great pride in working alongside their clients in Northeast Ohio
to reimagine familiar spaces and bring the client’s vision to life. Whether it’s a kitchen renovation or a
bathroom remodel, each client is involved throughout the process, ensuring transparency and trust as their
home is transformed.
