I collected five bids in February of 2014, and Possehl's turned out to not be the lowest bid. But I chose them for two main reasons. First and foremost, Michael Stanek is an oustanding communicator. He always answers his phone, responds to all email contacts, and really does a great job managing his crew. He called to let me know when they would be working, when the dumpster would get there, where they would put it, etc. The other reason I chose them were the glowing references of their past customers. I am renting out this house, and the spring rental market is really strong. I really asked Michael to do a difficult thing...to get our work done by 05/16/14, so we could get the best of the Spring rental market. Even with a ridiculous amount of cold, snowy and rainy days, Michael and his crew came through, on budget, on time, and there was no mess at all. Another outstanding bit of their service. This house has the really lousy masonite siding, and at all places near water, his crew would have been justified busting some of the pieces of masonite. Yet, all of the panels were preserved. I also had a new heater put in, and Possehl had to work with that contractor. As in all things on this deal, no problems. The house looks brilliant. I am buying another house this month, and Possehl's already gets the job. I am very, very satisfied with this company.
