DO NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY
This company was nice on the surface. We were initially happy with the result even though we had quite a few bumps in the road. Namely we argued over terms in the contract, for example "finished patio" was interpreted by us as having steps and the contractor did not include steps. This problem came up over and over. They went way over both their monetary and time estimates.
Since the remodel we have had issues. We had some water damage in the basement, not their fault, but the result was this summer 7/2014 we had to re-model the basement again. We went with J& D Builders and they pointed out that

did not use oil based paint in our bathrooms which is why we had bubbling paint around the shower.

did not completely finish painting all of the trim around the doors and baseboards and used a paint that attracts dust and skin oils making it look completely dirty all the time.
The worst though is that they DID NOT PULL PERMITS for the supposedly BRAND NEW furnace they placed. We just had the unit serviced and found out from Bonfe that what we thought was a brand new furnace is in fact 12 years old, used, and over-sized causing our filter to not work and the whole unit to need $1,000.00 in cleaning. It was also NEVER INSPECTED and is NOT TO CODE.
On the phone they denied wrong-doing, claimed they worked closely with my husband on every decision, and evaded by saying their sub-contractors were responsible for the furnace.
We reported

to the city of St.

and will be seeking complete replacement of the unit or we will seek damages.

They did a fabulous job with stunning results. Their crew was courteous, highly skilled, and completely trustworthy. They masterfully installed gorgeous tile floors, granite counters (custom built around a raised coffee cupboard), new windows, new cupboards, new appliances, and a full pantry. We receive many compliments on the results, but better - it works just the way we wanted it to.

guarantees their work so even now, if something isn't right after being used (a shelf comes off a hinge, etc.), a quick call and they are right over to make it right. Terrific company, terrific people.

The project went very well!
The space in the attic was a very tricky space with tightly angled walls/ceilings, not an easy design for a bathroom and closet area.
The end result is great, great flow and amazing use of space . . . it is now my master suite retreat!
I worked with

(Designer at

) on all the design details and finishes, we worked together to keep the budget in line. I showed her some designs that I liked and she had great ideas and finishes all selected as options for me to choose, which made it easy to complete the design details.
The central air and heat is working great up there . . . I was afraid it would still be quite a bit

Project Manager) was great . . . he was on top of all the details, all the contractors, inspections, and the dependencies between them. We kept in touch weekly at a minimum, he let me know what would be happening each week/day; and between if needed . . . and of course in person at the house often. He negotiated all the issues that came up with the subcontractors and gave me good options and needed info when I needed to make decisions and trade offs. He brought

was a master of the schedule and kept it on track, even getting inspectors out asap to keep things moving. I have pets and an alarm system and we figured out how to make all that work with all the workers coming in, even when I was traveling for work. He is very easy to work with and easy to have those tough construction discussions with.
I found all the contractors

used to be polite, courteous, and professional. They all had a good sense of when to ask me something if I was home and when to call

Home was poorly constructed in 1999 by
Saint Paul Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
. They attempted to fix the issues in 2004, but did not do so according to code. House is now 40+% full of moisture in the interior walls. Wife has come down with severe mold allergies and home is rotting and full of ants. Paved family will not do what is right to remedy the situation.

I had received bids from three roofing/soffit/gutter contractors, but each one told me what THEY do and how THEY do it and what materials they use, etc. All were going to use aluminum, and were unwilling to repair and paint fascia. I have an old house, and didn't want aluminum soffits.
I was able to tell
Saint Paul Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Van Vleet what I wanted, and how I wanted it done, and he said okay. He even suggested some new soffit material he had learned about. And his price was almost the lowest of the three. He even added a little extra work patching some holes, without extra charge.
I really appreciate the flexibility in how he approaches a job, and the broad range of skills he and his people have. He's my go-to person from now on.

The project went great - on time, under budget, great results!

and his crew gutted our bathroom down to the studs and rebuilt from there. The plumbing was replaced and moved around. Electrical was updated. The fixtures, tile, and vanity all turned out great. Plus he had some great ideas on the best use of space in a small bathroom. He was very good about keeping the rest of our house clean during the process, which we appreciated. He even let our dog out during the day (without us asking him to) because he thought she would like it. We are so happy with

's work and would recommend him to anyone for any project. We can't wait to hire him again!

I entrusted
Saint Paul Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to install 2 antique chandeliers in my home. He took down the old fixtures and rewired the ceiling to hang the new (old) fixtures. Despite some glitches with the old wiring, he figured out how to make it all work and even took extra time to position them so that they would hang with their best sides showing when you enter the room! We were impressed with his quick response to our phone calls for other projects and with his creativity. He really listened to what our ideas were for our basement bathroom and then offered his own to improve or to make our desires feasible.
We will definitely use

again as new projects arise in our home. He was prompt, professional and very reasonably priced!

Our kitchen was too small, we needed bigger space.
Saint Paul Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
had a few ideas and had a designer give us a few different options for the space. We wanted to stay within the footprint of the house, but we really liked the option that added a little extra space. We always felt we knew where we were in the process and although the pricing was higher than my husband wanted to pay it was very detailed. The crews who did the work kept us informed about the schedule – finishing about a week after we were told it would be done. The cabinetry was custom made.

did a beautiful job with the cabinets. We have 2 dogs and the guys really made sure to let us know when the noisy days might be.

First of all I want to state that I am extremely happy with the quality of the windows in my home. I have no complaints about the products themselves or the installation of the products. The foreman of the installation crew and his workers did a good job too. The problems did not start until the job was complete. As with any construction job a large down payment is required with the remainder due upon completion. I work in a real estate related business and have for many years. I also pride myself with having spotless credit and taking care of my business in a timely fashion. Within hours of the job being finished

started calling me wondering when he could pick up the remainder of the funds I owed him. At the time we were working lots of overtime so I suggested I mail it to him but that was not satisfactory. For about 2 or 3 days I truly felt like I was being pursued by a collection agency. To make matters worse,
Saint Paul Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the person doing the paperwork in the office couldn't get the paperwork straight and called me relentlessly to get it rectified. A few weeks after this business got settled I noticed that I did not receive one of the screens for the a window. I was told by Mr.
Saint Paul Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
that this was easily recified. They needed the information from the label on the window so I took a picture of it and emailed it to him within days of our intial contact. So why then did I have to follow up for weeks and months on end before my fiance finally went to their office to pick it up. Lastly, during the heavy rain of the past couple of weeks a leak developed in the flashing of one window. Again, I called immediately but it took more than one contact to get a response. Finally an time range for an appointment was set up but no one showed up. They came the next day without notfication. Bottom line is that

has a great product but does not know how to run a business. If he could acquire business skills that would match his product he would have to turn away customers.
