Recent Review: After seeing their product at the Minneapolis Home & Garden show we were convinced that this was the right product for our porch improvement work. The guys from EZ-Screen brought samples to our home to help us select frame color and installation method. They took careful measurements of all of the window and door openings and put our order in motion. A few weeks later our windows and door were delivered. We did this work at the same time we had some exterior siding work done by another contractor. We arranged to have that contractor do the actual installation of the EZ-Screen product. The rep from EZ-Screen came out to our site when the installation started to ensure that our contractor understood how to properly install the windows and door. Everything went smoothly and contractor commented on how easy the windows went in. After three full seasons of use we still enjoy the product and we're pleased that we chose this as part of our porch renovation. It has added several additional months to our porch usage in our short Minnesota summer seasons. I highly recommend this product for any new screen porch or porch renovation job!

Recent Review: Adam was referred to me by my brother and his wife after he installed their hardwood flooring. I needed a mosaic backsplash installed in my kitchen and laundry room. He came to give me an estimate on the day and at the time he said he would. He gave me a written estimate. I accepted it and work began. Adam was very prompt and professional. Anytime he knew he wouldn't be at my house as expected, he texted me to let me know. We were so happy with his work that we hired him to build our 14x28 foot composite deck and to rebuild our front steps. After that, we were still so impressed that we hired him to install railings on two of our new porches. Adam Miller is an excellent contractor with a strong work ethic. He is one of the few contractors that worked on our house that I would welcome back! And on top of that, he was very kind to my 5 year old son who was absolutely fascinated with all the construction that was going on...and quot;Hey Adam, whatcha doing?and quot; was a constant but I never heard him get annoyed or even ignore my son. Impressive! I will hire him again when needed! (The prices were varied depending on the job.)

Recent Review: They came to the house and removed everything from the screened in porch. They removed all of the material down to the deck boards. They constructed the walls and roof and matched to my home better then the previous porch. They got it enclosed quickly so that they could finish the interior. They consulted me with any questions or concerns on my preferences. They cleaned up after themselves and were very respectful of my property.  I am very pleased with the results of their labors.

Recent Review: Initially, excellent to work with. Owner and supervisor plus one crew head provided initial consultation and estimate, helping us to choose the right siding and a color scheme. They told us what crew would work on our house and provided references to jobs done by that crew. However, when the crew showed up it was not the one we were told would be doing our job. Initially, we were told the job would take less than two weeks, but with our slow and careless crew of two, the job ended up taking all summer. Often, only one of the crew members would show up. Additionally, the supervisor rarely came around. When inspecting the siding ourselves, we found it wavy and with larger seam gaps than normal. Calls to their main number went unreturned. Finally, we obtained the owner's cell phone number and called him, refusing to pay until the job was done "right" (which meant level siding and tighter seams). Then, the gutters. Come to find out, the company does not do gutters; they subcontract. When ready for the gutters to be installed, the other company did not show until over a week later (leaving our house with no gutters during heavy rain which then seeped into our basement and caused damp carpet and mold growth). Finally, the gutters were installed. The first rain came. Looking out the windows, the rain poured down in sheets all along the house, running behind the gutters. We called Robison Siding's owner on his cell and told him to immediately come out. Then, he had to get in touch which the gutter company owner who sent out a different crew to correctly install the gutters. Additionally, gutter guards were included in our quote but not in the job request Robison passed on to the gutter company, thus causing another delay. Please note: final cost was higher than estimate due to the discovery of rotted framing on the chimney, thanks to improper roof flashing when the house was built. As a result, the chimney had to be rebuilt and the roofing near the chimney redone. This was done by their supervisor, who did excellent work. He also installed our porch railing and did a fine, efficient job. Too bad he didn't do the actual siding. Last but not least, when the first real winds came, the siding came off of one whole side of our house, requiring another call to the owner, who was in disbelief. Supposedly, we received the short end of the stick as they were doing a whole-house remodel in a neighboring town. In other words, the company was in transition and expansion with an inadequate, inexperienced crew. We received the two "left-over" crew members. All in all, they talked a good game but failed to deliver as promised and left a bitter taste in our mouthes.

Recent Review: They promptly returned my initial call...came for the consultation...returned with the estimate and began the work within FOUR days!!! (We were lucky they were able to fit us in between some bigger projects they had scheduled) They came at 8:30 AM every morning..(the first morning in the last April snow) and did not leave for other jobs until my porch was done. They built the new north wall and closet....did all the drywall, electrical, floor tile and wood finishing. Perfectly matching the woodwork and closet doors to the rest of my house. From the outside (and inside) it looks like it was original. They were professional, personable, and expertly skilled at all phases of the construction. My cold, open, north facing cement porch has been transformed to a beautiful, functional "Entry Foyer". I can't wait to plan my next project for them!!"

He did an excellent job. He built my ramp to OSHA standards and it looks great. He used nice wood and his craftmanship was excellent. He also extended my porch and did great work. He insisted on going somewhere else to use the restroom and eat even though I offered several times. He is very professional and takes pride in his work. I'm going to have him redo a bathroom for me soon.

AAddition Doctors
The new Addition came together beautifully. We were very happy with the high quality products used and the quality workmanship. We receive nothing but raves when others see the finished work. The addition started in the fall of 2012 with tearing off the old original porch.  Then they dug down for the footing and put a crawl space under the addition because of the plumbing for the bathroom. In the process of doing this plumbing they also added plumbing lines to the upstairs for a future bathroom up there.  Also in the process of doing the tear off and exposing the house they took precautions to keep the house protected from the weather.  Even though the project lasted overall around 8 months, they kept the main house protected and we were removed from the mess most of the time.  Even as the barriers came down because we were in the finishing stages, it was very manageable to live in the house all the time.  The over all design on the outside and the trim on the inside matched and complimented the  house design very well.    The addition ended up with a vaulted ceiling, with a very cool ceiling paint job that instead of stopping the ceiling paint line right at the corner of the wall and ceiling they brought the paint line down about 1/2" onto the wall. It might not sound like much but almost everybody notices that little detail and they go "WOW I really like how they did that" (that was a bonus they did they did without charging extra even though the process was more involved to do it) The bathroom ended up with a 4' walk in shower stool and vanity.  It was done with handicap features in mind for down the road if we need it.   Then we had hardwood flooring put down. Quite a few windows - Andersen Windows and custom made trim to match the origonal trim in the house. It was not an easy addition to do but now that it's done we use it all the time and we love it. If I had more money I would have them back to do my kitchen - that's next!

FBarker Construction
He was supposed to complete all of these things but kept coming up with excuses for why he couldn?t.  At first we understood, his grandson had cancer, so we gave him leeway.  It has now been 3 years and he still hasn?t completed the work even though we paid him. We took him to small claims court but he never showed up and has never responded to any appeals.  We haven't heard from him at all and we need our money back or the job to be completed.
