We had MN Monarch add a pergola to our new patio. Dani was pleasant and professional, and her work was top-notch. We were really happy with the process -- she was always on-time and answered our questions -- and the finished product, which is beautiful and just what we wanted. No surprises and efficient work.

Hal is a bit of a character and drives an old truck, but he is very pleasant and takes great pride in his workmanship. One of the few times in our history of several home projects where a project has exceeded our expectations.

It went great! We had seen some of Jeff's work, and knew he was both creative, and a good carpenter. He chalked out the design for the pergola on his garage floor, and it was so helpful to stand in the space! It led us to make it bigger than we had originally planned. The pergola is an unusual shape, and on an angle to the house - landmarks were hard to find for proper placement and alignment of the posts, and the pergola had to "fit" properly with a new paver patio. Jeff figured out how to mark the dimensions and angles, and he and Chris Brandt (of Chris Brandt Pavers - see our review) worked well together to get it done perfectly - I mean PERFECTLY! We have had many OOHs and AAHs from our friends, and have enjoyed the space very much!

I really liked the work that they did. It matched the existing pergola exactly. They came in and gave us a bid and did the work on a schedule that we agreed on. They were very respectful of our property and our neighbors property. We are currently having them work on the interior of our garage.

Absolutely great experience. My deck is an amazing outdoor living area. Just had the entire family over, and the deck was the main topic of conversation. Cy is an amazing carpenter, and his experience helps him to design really unique custom decks. I will be using these guys for jobs again next summer.

Our experience with Hal was wonderful. He has fantastic design vision, attention to detail and produces high quality products for an amazing value. We were so impressed with the work that he did. that we are already thinking of additional projects. In addition to the larger projects, he also worked with us to complete some small maintenance projects around the yard - refurbishing some Adirondack chairs, light fixtures, etc. Other reviewers have captured the considerations on how to best work with Hal: have a point of view, but your project will come out even more amazing if you take his design feedback into account, communicate clearly and often, but be flexible on your timeline, to account for weather and unforeseen delays. Wonderful experience, highly recommended!

A Wonderful experience! We had a pergola on our front entrance where the wood had started to rot. We needed to have it replaced. Andrew (the Melon Man) responded quickly to our call for an estimate. He arrived on time to evaluate the job. We had an email estimate by the next day. He provided a contract detailing the work and we paid a down payment. He scheduled his work for 2 weeks out and even provided the time he planned to start. The day of the job, he called to let us know that he may be about 30 minutes late; and arrived as expected. During demolition, Andrew discovered that there was a need to replace an additional post where wood rot was not visible prior to demolition. He immediately called us to obtain authorization for the additional work and cost. He estimated that the job would be completed in 1 day. Melon Man delivered a beautiful pergola while staying with the time and cost estimate. We are very pleased with our new pergola. It is a pleasure to work with a professional who communicates, is responsive and meets his commitments! We will definitely use Melon Man in the future and would heartily recommend him to others!!

Very thorough on power washing - everything looks great! All painting looks great, only minor touch-ups required on hard to reach spots on pergola. Would definitely use again. All the crew were great to work with as well as Steve, the project manager. Very responsive during all stages of the project.

I called Jim to explain our need to create privacy, and a new outdoor experience. With only pictures of examples, and Jim's help, we have a wonderful new pergola mounted on our existing deck, and an updated rail system incorporating 6x6 construction, and new metal ballisters. Jim, and his crew showed up on time, cleaned up after each day, and were in touch with me prior to any design changes etc. The whole experience was great and I am sure we will look to contract with Jim for our future needs.
