Who We Are Team
Ty Melton

Ty Melton founded Melton Design Build in 1993. Today, both Ty and Melton Design Build have become household names when it comes to residential and commercial renovation in Boulder County. He has worked with the city and county of Boulder to develop green building practices and is an active member of Remodeler’s Advantage, a national roundtable group where some of the best remodelers in the nation work together throughout the year to share best practices, ideas and insights for running a top-notch remodeling firm.

When he started this company 30 years ago, he dreamed of building a successful business that could one day be passed on to an employee and continue forward. He is beyond thrilled to see that vision come to life, and sold his ownership shares in the company to Craig and Graham in December 2021. While stepping back in his official ownership role, he will still stay on with the company as an active coach and mentor and provide continuity to the leadership team. This change will allow him to spend more time with my family, focus on other passions, and move closer to retirement, while still ensuring the company’s continued success and longevity. He is excited to hand the reins over to the next generation of leaders and help them continue building and developing the company.

In the beginning, Ty led his company to complete dozens of commercial tenant-finish projects for companies such as Starbucks, The Body Shop, The Boulder Community Hospital, Illegal Pete’s, and Chicago Hair. He quickly realized the need for a design/build remodeling company in Boulder County capable of providing innovative solutions, meticulous craftsmanship, and solid value to homeowners. In response, Ty launched the residential remodeling side of Melton Design Build, and since, the company has completed hundreds of home renovation and home remodeling projects including additions, bathrooms, pop-tops, basements, kitchens, decks, offices and so much more.

Ty is a native of Colorado. He began working in construction during high school and later worked as a framing and siding lead carpenter and land surveyor. His passion for woodworking, however, led him to become a custom cabinet and furniture maker for several years.

Early in his career, Ty decided to take several years “off” to cycle through much of the U.S. and Europe. When he was ready to settle down, he chose Boulder, and has called it home now for over two decades.

Ty has always felt it important to give back to his community. Over the years, he has volunteered countless hours with Rotary’s INTERACT and RYLA clubs, served on the Board of Directors of Rotary and the Boulder History Museum. He has also been a volunteer soccer coach with the YMCA, Boulder Force, and Boulder Indoor Soccer.

Ty enjoys spending time with his wife and their two sons, coaching soccer, fly-fishing, cycling and woodworking.
