Reviews in Minneapolis for Building a Gazebo

CSculptured Earth
If you are looking for paver patios, the installers are great. They did a very nice job, and were professional throughout. They would clean up every day before leaving, addressed any questions we had timely and we are very satisfied with the results. We also added a gazebo to our patio design. It was very clear that gazebo's are not one of their strengths. We encountered many issues with the design and build of the gazebo long before construction began. We had hired Josh in October to complete all elements of the landscaping project the following spring. Over the winter months, we had asked on many occasions for catalog photos, or anything that would confirm what the finished gazebo was going to look like. The pictures were never sent and the only indication of what it might look like came just a few days before the project began and was a very small (1x1) black and white picture. Our expectation of the gazebo was that the material used would be cedar. We had asked for glass windows that could be closed during the cooler and winter months. We were assured on many occasions that cedar material and glass windows were what we were going to get. As they were starting to build the gazebo, the material was not cedar, rather it was pressed wood. As the windows were installed, they were not glass (despite being told that very day they were glass), instead they were a plastic film over the screens. We were left in a very difficult position where we were essentially forced to concede on both elements. While the gazebo is functional, and will suit our needs, had Josh sent just ONE picture sometime in the 5 months or so prior the project start, we may have been able to make a different decision. Related, and something else to be aware of. When trying to reach Josh about start dates, etc I would say he was not always as responsive as I would have expected. Furthermore, there were multiple instances where what was promised was not delivered. Again, if you are looking at a paver or patio project - these guys are great and I would recommend their workmanship. However beware of anything more than that.

Great. They installed footings 1 day, then came back later and installed the Gazebo we bought from Costco.

Paul and his crew were excellent to work with from start to finish. Paul was prompt in responding to my request for a bid, he offered knowledgable, practical and viable ideas to address a difficult situation (top half of the Gazebo was fine, bottom half was rotted pretty significantly including the under-layment below the Gazebo), his bid was competitive with others I received (4 bids overall), and he was willing to start the project in a very reasonable time frame. Once the project started, Paul and his crew member Mike were both very proficient, quick on the job, diligent in cleaning up at the end of each day and offered creative ideas along the way that made the finished product look even better than we had originally hoped for. The job was finished in a very reasonable timeframe. The Gazebo looks great, the deck feels solid again, and we could not be more pleased. Paul and his crew did a great job.

MARK AND LOU PETERSON ARE A HUSBAND AND WIFE TEAM THAT RUN THIS BUSINESS TOGETHER. THEY OFFER CEDAR SHEDS AND GAZEBOS EITHER AS A KIT OR INSTALLED. THERE ARE NOT A LOT OF DESIGN OPTIONS OFFERED, BUT THE QUALITY OF THE MATERIALS AND THE AVAILABLE DESIGNS ARE VERY GOOD. THEY GAVE US AN ESTIMATE ON THE DATE ABOUT SIX WEEKS OUT FROM OUR ORDER PLACEMENT AND WERE THERE THAT DAY. THEY BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION A SMALL DEFECT IN ONE WINDOW, ORDERED THE REPLACEMENT AND INSTALLED IT WITHOUT QUESTIONING THE NEED TO DO SO. THEY WERE TOTALLY RESPONSIVE TO ANY REQUESTS AND VERY EFFICIENT IN THEIR WORK. OUR GAZEBO WAS COMPLETED IN 2.5 DAYS.

Went very well. Derek called me back immediately and came over to give me an estimate. I was most worried about getting the posts in the ground before the ground froze so they did that within the week. The guy who built the gazebo and fixed the window fit me ito their schedule on short notice and I couldn't be happier with the final project. I was worried that when the other contractor backed out I wouldn't be able to get the project done until next spring but Derek assured me it would get done. They were also able to reuse the skylight and windows from my old gazebo so i was appreciative of that. The project was done exactly on estimate.

Paul did an excellent job.  We met several weeks ahead of the project beginning to talk through everything.  Paul provided an estimate of costs and time to complete the job.  Once the project began, everything went very well.  Paul explained any challenges he ran into and removed the gazebo which freed up a large part of my yard.  I was very happy with his work.

Very well. Since 2014, Working for You has done many jobs for me. In 2014, I was looking for someone who I could call on for repair and improvement jobs around my house. He always delivers what he promises. He starts when he says he will and his estimates of time and price are near the mark. He does not make promises that he can not keep.

Recent Review: We started with just a big lawn and an old rickety deck in our backyard and nothing else, and planned on a massive project with an equally massive total budget of about $200,000 to put in a new in-ground swimming pool, new deck, new concrete patio with outdoor kitchen, vinyl gazebo, planting beds, trees, fence, and revised drainage scheme for our fairly flat lot with clay soil and poor drainage, plus a small home addition to our house as well. Sculptured Earth was to be our landscape contractor and project manager to coordinate all the various other contractors. Josh (the owner of the company) promptly met with us at our appointment time at our home and reviewed our "needs and wants" for our project. He met with us again a week later with 3 rough drawings/concepts for our yard, and after taking our suggestions and noting our likes and dislikes about each, he came back for a third meeting with a "semi-final" plan with an initial itemized contract showing the price. Up to this point, Josh REQUIRED NO MONEY UP FRONT and NO CONTRACT for all that design work (which must have been several hours worth of work), and only when we decided that this "semi-final" plan was what we wanted, did he ask for a deposit and a signed contract. (Ultimately this was one of the reasons we hired Josh, including his impeccable references. We had interviewed 2 other contractors, one who never called us back after the first meeting, and another who wanted a $1000 retainer to just start the design process). He also discussed various scenarios for staging the project in parts so that we could opt to only do portions at a time, in case our budget required it, but fortunately we were in a position to do the entire project at once. He did allow us to modify some items as the project was in progress when we changed our minds about certain details, or wanted to add components along the way. No "hidden fees" or "change order fees" were ever added on, just the cost of the work and materials. We added and subtracted a few things along the 4 months (Apr-July) that it took to complete everything, which did increase the projected completion time somewhat, but we also had a few delays due to the usual weather issues, and also a 10-day delay that was entirely due to an electrical subcontractor (who was hired through the pool contractor) who couldn't keep to his promised schedule dates. This was not Josh's fault. He was always responsive whenever we had concerns. He always returned my phone calls within a day. Josh's business philosophy is that until his customer is satisfied, he will not be either. His crew was always polite and on time each day. A project of this scope can be expected to have glitches along the way, and ours was no exception. Whenever a problem arose, Josh was always receptive to our wishes when a solution was devised. An example: Josh's concrete subcontractor made a critical error in distorting the pool's autocover housing, such that the cover couldn't be installed. The concrete guy wanted to do a "shortcut" fix which was not something that we would have been satisfied with. I emphasized this point to Josh, and he made the concrete guy do it the way we wanted it, which was going to involve removing and re-pouring 3 times more concrete than the concrete subcontractor wanted to, but would result in a much more structurely sound patio. To be honest, Josh and his crew didn't catch all the problems that arose. Not because they ignored them, but because a project of this size is difficult to keep a handle on for anyone. So I did act as my own "general contractor" to keep tabs on things. I caught the electrical contractor accidentally kinking one of the gas lines to the pool heater. This is not something I would necessarily expect Josh's crew to see. I had to make the calls to the gas subcontractor to make sure this was repaired before the gas line was buried. There was another error that Josh missed which I was able to catch when I noticed that it didn't appear that the deck stairs would reach the concrete patio as intended based on where the forms were relative to the partially-completed deck stair landing. Apparently Josh's error was in assuming the deck plans were completely accurate from the deck contractor, but there was a slight variance in the actual deck stairs once built. It probably would've been better if Josh had verified with the decking contractor where the stairs would end at the bottom instead of assuming things by the plans. But again, I know that Josh would've fixed it if it hadn't been caught by me and the concrete was poured incorrectly. I just helped to circumvent a mistake before it happened. Another potential error happened at the beginning where Josh's crew starting building the stone steps to our shed area, but had to re-do it 3 times because they kept making them stick out into our yard a little too far for our liking. But Josh was more than happy to make the necessary changes (with no additional cost to us) until we were happy with the result. A final glitch happened when Josh was spraying a muriatic acid solution around our newly installed outdoor stainless steel refridgerator, grill, cabinet doors, etc. The refridgerator door was etched by the solution, and I pointed it out to Josh. He reimbursed me for the $200 it would cost to get a new door for the refridgerator. One time, his crew was digging the drainage trench for the French drain, and they damaged the gas line also. Josh notified me immediately and arranged to have the gas subcontractor out to the house ASAP, and he covered that cost without question. I don't want to paint a negative picture about Josh and Sculptured Earth by mentioning these errors. Quite the contrary, because a big project like this has a good probability that mistakes can and will happen even with our painstakingly detailed planning, the homeowner wants the contractor(s) involved to take ownership of the errors and make things right to the satisfaction of the homeowner. What you don't want is a contractor who makes excuses and tries to avoid fixing the problem, or tries to get away with a "shortcut." Worse yet, you don't want a contractor who will try to hide the mistake from the homeowner. I wanted to highlight that Josh is the type of contractor who will do whatever is necessary to fix any glitches along the way. He runs his business with the utmost integrity, his crew works extremely hard to make sure the homeowner is satisfied, and in the end they do fabulous work! If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely hire Josh again. In fact, when we get around to doing our front and side yards, I'll be calling Josh and Sculptured Earth to do the job.
