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: We are very glad that we selected Clark Construction for the work at our home including some cement work, modifying our garage to accommodate a new garage door, installing new porch pillars, and putting in new doors. We are EXTREMELY pleased with the results. Matt and his crew pay close attention to the smallest of details which is wonderful. They work hard, and are very courteous. When it comes to their knowledge and skills, it is obvious they are pros. It is nice when things work out as well as they did. We will certainly be repeat customers for any future home improvement needs.

Excellent. The attention to detail was perfect. Case was very prompt every day, did exactly what they said they would do, cleaned the job site regularly and constantly sought feedback to insure my satisfaction with every phase of the construction.

Workers were very efficient, arrived early, very professional. They weren't happy until we were happy. Update as of 10-14-14: The gutter and rails have started to come down. They have been unresponsive with our communication.

I tried contacting several contractors about this job, and Ben was the only one who responded to me. Therefore, he got the job! As for the quality of the work, he clearly has high standards for himself and his crew. A couple of times certain details weren't quite looking right, and he very quickly identified and fixed them. One of the best things in my opinion is that he has quite an eye for design, and I felt like I could trust him to take a certain amount of artistic license with the project. He suggested several really cool ideas that ended up enhancing the look of the final project. Not feeling like I had to be super vigilant about watching what was happening was very nice. I will say that if this had been a bigger project, I wouldn't have minded a little more communication, and to see more formal plans. But because I trusted him to deliver a quality product (and he did), it was easy to overlook. In addition, I think this was a comparatively small project that he kind of squeezed in, which I'm grateful for, because other contractors I tried to contact did not get back with me at all. Our front entrance ended up turning out great, and I will definitely try to use Bosworth Builders for any future projects!

I asked Katet Handyman Services to provide quotations for wooden porches to replace two cement porches. (Removal of the existing porches was handled by a separate contractor.  I told David that the base of the front porch had been poured with the foundation, and would be remaining in place, with the new porch to be built over it.  This turned out to be the case with the side porch also, discovered only when the cement was broken up for removal.)  I also asked for a quote to install a new exterior door. David and Jeremy were polite, responsive, and professional.  David sent his quote by e-mail, and I was very pleased with the numbers.  I will admit that I made a major mistake at this point by not requesting a detailed proposal as to what would be provided for the quoted prices.  This was the first of several 'miscommunications' that occurred during this 'project'.   This was my first experience with hiring contractors, and I relied too heavily on Angie's List, and the limited reviews available.  Also, I wasn't assertive enough when I realized communication was lacking.   The front porch was completed in two days, and I was happy with the result.  It was one foot wider than the porch it replaced, as David had said would be necessary to allow the supports to be placed adjacent to the old cement porch base.  Even though David had recognized this when he took the measurements for the new porch (I told him the cement contractor would be removing only the 8" thick 'deck' and the three cement steps, leaving the base, to be built over by the new wood porch), he apparently failed to include that additional one foot width when quoting materials.  As a result, the planks for the new deck were not long enough. Material exchanges were necessary. The steps were attached to the decking, but the next day, Jeremy said he had to remove them and move them over, as they hadn't been centered properly to align with the railings that were to be installed.  More time was invested, and I wondered how David was going to cover his increased material, and now labor costs.  I was wary, but didn't ask any questions. Now on to the second porch.  When I discussed the porches originally with David, I said I wanted the porches replaced as they were, which meant the side porch would have two sets of steps, one leading toward the back of the driveway, one toward the front, with a narrow porch side-to-side, just as the cement porch had been, due to the location of the driveway, immediately adjacent to the porch.  David mentioned that the two back steps would have to be replaced by three, since the step depth on that side was not up to code, but that the steps would then extend past a portion of the block glass basement window.  I told him that was not a problem.   I had no reason to believe when I saw the quote David sent me that it did not cover the two sets of steps on the side porch, as we had discussed.   David was on another job, and Jeremy and another worker were working on the deck of the side porch, when Jeremy asked me if I had decided on whether I wanted one set of steps or two.  He said then that to install a second set would be an additional $150. I was angry at myself for not getting an itemized quote from David, angry at David for putting Jeremy in that position of confronting me with additional charges, and realized THIS was probably how they decided to recoup some of the losses they had on the front porch installation. Having budgeted based on the quote, I opted for a single set of steps.  Almost immediately, I wished I'd told them I needed to think about it overnight, but I let them continue, to my regret.  The porch is nice as it is, but it doesn't meet our needs like the dual set of steps would have. The door installation was to be the final part of this project, and the labor was provided by Jeremy and the other worker.  Every time I heard the power saw screeching, I gritted my teeth, wondering just what I had gotten myself into.  My house is over 50 years old, and probably not easy to retrofit, but I hadn't realized it would be necessary to saw through the wood siding of the house to take the old door out. Once the new door was in, I checked with Jeremy, who admitted it had been a trial getting the new door installed.  He told me he could trim up the slashes around the periphery of the door frame, and add a band of metal trim and caulk to seal it, but it would cost me 'around $80 extra'.  I was home at all times when the crew was working.  I was available at all times for updates, discussions, etc.  that never happened.  I was appalled by the uneven gashes around the door frame, but knew I couldn't seal it up myself.  At this point, I felt I had no recourse but to give the go-ahead.   The side entry looks 'okay', but there are chips and gouges in the wood siding that I will take care of myself.  This whole experience, that started out to be so positive, has left a very bitter taste in my mouth.  When David came by to pick up my check, I expressed some of my disappointments about the way things were handled.  His response was that I had asked for the quote 'both ways, with one set of steps and two', and in his busyness, he failed to quote the 'two step option'.  I do not buy this excuse.

Great! Stephan was here promptly (except for weather issues) and finished the work in a timely manner. He did just as we had asked and even added a few nice touches. Very easy to work with and worked very hard to get done in time. He was great about communicating promptly and even came back a couple of times to adjust quotes and explain things to my husband. Would definitely hire again in the future for anything we need to be done.

So I discovered Mike just over a year ago on Craigslist. I was looking for someone to paint my 8,000 sq ft commercial building. Let me preface this by saying that it's very hard to find honest, hardworking and responsive contractors for anything short of building a home or getting out for a reasonable price. I've done Craigslist, Angie's List, word of mouth...some have worked out well, others disaster. I became very leery of trusting what people tell you. I had a good contractor but he was tough to pin down and quite pricey. So I gave Mike a shot. He and his wife Rachel work as a team. They painted our building, got it done in time, and didn't leave mess(another pet peeve!) Since then, I had them install an exterior door on our house. Which brings us to the most current project-we had them tear out our old 1940's sun porch and reframe it to fit modern windows. They also had to create a wider door space, install the door, wrap the porch, install the windows, and door. Also quoted was an upstairs balcony exterior door. They went as far as to pick up the windows at another location out of their way because my location couldn't get them on time. They picked up the doors, as well. The project was completed in about 4 1/2 days. No lengthy pauses, no leftover mess, and everything was done to my vision. It looks great! I'm convinced that this pair can do pretty much anything. So if you're looking for a new "go-to" guy(and gal), they're it. They're willing to work from north of Baldwin to Grand Rapids and down to S. Haven- quite the territory!

Once he finally showed up--took from August until November before the work was started--everything was fine except he failed to replace a horizontal handrail that had been there previously. Kept putting me off on replacing it until the end of May. Still not done. Reference Western Michigan BBB Complaint Case# 37074011 for complete details. I filed this complaint after he threatened to sue ME for harassment AND wanted $300 to replace just this one board!

They were very professional. The quote was pretty detailed. I know their quality is good, but their estimate was way above my budget. The materials that they wanted to use were more than I wanted to invest.
