Garage Building reviews in Minneapolis


Summer 2013 was a difficult construction season due to weather. As a result, the project stretched from May until October - lots of promises to be on site on specific dates that passed without activity. Generally, quality of work was good. However, small details were often overlooked and I had to point out the need for correction. E.g., small concrete splashes on the new stucco, no plugs on alignment holes drilled in railings, railings not tight, doorway between garages left crude and unfinished, house foundation wall (now the interior wall of the new garage) left dirty, pocked, and ugly. Bottom line, communication and follow-up were more my responsibility than I would have liked - not pro-active enough on achieving customer satisfaction.

My dad was looking for a garage to do some tinkering in. He is not Internet savvy so I researched various builders in the Metro area and chose Western based not only their competitive prices, but the friendliness of their staff.

came out and took his time to talk through everything my dad wanted and was very clear on timing and what to expect. His delivery was exactly what he laid out and it put my mind at ease to know that my dad was taken care of.
My dad has been a contractor for years but in his older age is not capable of building a garage for himself anymore. He is VERY knowledgeable on the topic and he talked very highly of Western's level of expertise. I would definitely recommend this company again!

My garage was hit by the tornado in north Minneapolis back in 2011. When I purchased my home in February of 2013 the garage was in shambles. Every company told me they would have to tear down and demolish what was remaining and start from scratch (excluding the concrete floor). I heard about

through a friend of mine who also had work done by them. He recommended I give them a call before I make any decisions. BEST ADVICE EVER. Someone came out right away (same day!) to give me an estimate. It was immediately clear this man knew significantly more than anyone else I had met with. While every other company wanted to build me a new garage, said it would take 3 weeks, and wanted to take every penny I would give them. Western said they could rebuild the garage, and then proceeded to show me exactly how and why it was possible when I had questions/concerns that it was cutting corners. All of my concerns were explained in a way I could understand instead of construction mumbo-

. The only thing that had to be entirely replaced was the garage door and they were even able to get me a deal on that! They were there everyday until it was done, anytime I spoke to any of the workers they either had an answer or got one for me immediately. I have never had such phenomenal service anywhere for anything.
The bottom line: Western saved me almost $10,000, got the job done in 1/3 the time, the estimate was %100 accurate and never changed on me. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family, and will be using them again for future projects.

Slavec followed up with me the next day to set up an appointment immediately. He was thankfully able to meet the next day as we were on a bit of time crunch to make a decision. Fortunately I didn't even need to bring that up as

The bidding & estimating process went smoothly and

also took care of the city permit process too so that really helped reduce the hassle. The day of the build the crew showed up on time and got right to work. Even then there was a last minute detail about a roller door that got rehashed but

were patient and it was all worked out quickly. The building is really nice and a person can tell it's well crafted just by looking at it. It looks tight, square, the doors open & swing easily and seams are chalked. We'll get many years of use out of the building.

I was pleased with the overall quality of the work and the methodical nature of the staff. The cost of the job, which was one of the two pricier of the three estimates I received, was also very close to the estimate I was given and the staff was responsive when I reached out to them through most of the project.
But there were some glitches. ...More /> I had been told that the job would take about three weeks to complete. In fact it took about twice that time, with many days when no work was going on.
After the job was finished there was some work that was left undone, including cleaning out the garage, which was caked with dirt from the work and repairing the asphalt driveway that had been damaged during construction of the garage. The repair of the driveway was imperfectly and unevenly done, even after I alerted the company to the problem. The concrete apron they poured leading to the garage is not quite level and so there are spots where water collects. The patching of the asphalt does not look at all harmonious.
Rebuilding this garage has been the biggest single project I have undertaken in my home so maybe I should have expected such problems, but they left me without a completely positive view of this contractor.

Overall we are very satisfied. They know their craft and seem to have developed relationships with subcontractors they trust. Everyone involved was professional. The garage is well-built. They were responsive to concerns and questions we had along the way. The project took a little longer than we had hoped, but that's partly due to our own delay in getting the financing arranged so that we ended up later on their build schedule. When the garage door needed an adjustment after the first few months, they responded quickly and arranged for a "final adjustment."

, the president, came out to perform the consultation and was very thorough and friendly, and I felt a level of confidence and trustworthiness right away. Once work began, every person that came to work on the various facets of the job was polite, courteous, very professional and respectful of my time and property. The work was done in a timely and efficient manner, everything was neatly finished with no messes left behind.

also worked with me to provide suggestions on the best way to complete the repairs to make things even better than they were before the storm. All in all I was very pleased with the quality of work and the overall professionalism and friendliness of everyone involved. I would use STVC again without hesitation!

I had a hard time finding the right kind of service provider to replace a hail-damaged metal shed (it was a small project for some of the contractors but dealing with insurance seemed more than the handyman services were used to). I called

was great, he came out once himself to look at the site, and then a couple days later the actual installer came to look, in the process of putting together a quote for us. The cost came in within the amount allocated by insurance. We were out of town when we finalized the contract, and

was generous in stopping by our house in person to pick up the deposit check when we got back so that we could get everything started a few days sooner.

also hauled away some scrap metal that we needed to dispose of (that had to be moved in order to take the old shed down), at no extra charge which we were grateful for.
The work was done over the course of two afternoons. The crew was polite and cleaned up after themselves, and the new shed is pretty much exactly like the old one.
We are happy with the experience of working with

and with the work they did for us.

Overall it went well. Started a little later than planned but once it got going the work got done quickly. They can make it as fancy or as bare bones as your budget requires. The owner
