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: Great experience with this company! Everyone was extremely helpful and courteous. I felt informed every step of the way. They were actually the second company we called to discuss the issue with, and I am so pleased we did. They saved us $300 on the solution as compared to what we were quoted by the other company. They were extremely responsive and would recommend their services to everyone.

Recent Review: I can't say enough good things about Dan McAllister. He took note of every detail that I was looking for, and was able to incorporate all of them. We had a old deck that had to be removed for some foundation work. When it came time rebuild, I decided to hire it out. Dan worked to get all of the permits which did takes some time because of the county. Once a date was set, Dan and his crew completed construction in 5 days. He went above and beyond such as replacing some aluminum siding with new materials b/c it doesn't re-install very well and really took pride in the structure. Crew was polite and respectful. Couldn't be happier

Recent Review: Very good. Ron came out, did a quick estimate and got back to us quickly. Price was comparable to others (still expensive, though). Had 2 folks doing the work, lead builder very professional; 2nd helper not as much (just a helper). The helper's quality was so-so, but the lead person fixed it (very frustrating for her!). As a custom deck, we made a few changes along the way, this was handled just fine, with reasonable charges.

Recent Review: I called, left a message for Darren Hoelle to call me.  He called me the next day, told him I needed an estimate for painting.  He came the next day.  I had an e-mailed estimate the next day.  he told me they could do the work sometime in December.  I said I hope it's before my husband wants to put up the Christmas tree.  He called on Friday,11/15 and said they would be here Monday,11/18 at 7:00am.   Darren and two other men came promptly at 7:00am.  Darren began work on the ceiling repair, told one man how to complete it and told them both what had to be done. One worked on the ceiling while one stripped the wallpaper.  After the ceiling was repaired he began skim coating the kitchen walls while the other painted the family room ceiling, it took 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint.  The second day the skim coat was finished and sanded and the kitchen ceiling was painted.  The third day one man painted the kitchen walls, baseboards, door and window trim.  It took 2 men 2 days and one man on the third day.  I was very pleased with their work and the results.  They even hung plastic over the doorways to other rooms when the man was sanding to keep dust in the kitchen.  They also vacuumed and mopped the floor. The price was what the estimate was. Darren Hoelle has done many things for us.  He replaced front porch columns after a driver lost control, came up through our yard and "took out" the porch columns.  His company replaced a bathroom double sink, counter top and faucets.  His company installed a new built in stove, microwave, kitchen sink, faucet, disposal.  His company repaired soffets on the back of the house and got rid of the squirrels in the attic.  His company repaired window sills, trim, drip strips and painted the wood portion (the upstairs) of the house including window trim, shutters, doors and new garage door.  I asked and Darren recommended a company.  I bought a new garage door.  Once my kitchen pipe, drain began leaking.  I called, he was close by and Darren was here to fix it in 15 minutes.  When "Hurricane Ike" came through here his company quickly came to cover the damaged roof area and then replaced the whole roof.  He also did almost immediate repairs on several friends, relatives roofs which were damaged during the same storm. I met him in the 90s at a business show.  He and his company have done many things around our house and has helped many of my friends and relatives.  I have always been very pleased with the work, the responsiveness, everything about Hoelle Maintenance and Construction and I recommend the company.

He's possibly going to be doing a couple of other things for me. He's good at punctuality and returning phone calls. The quality of work is really good. He responds to my concerns.

Service and product were excellent.  The weather delayed the construction by several weeks.  As soon as the rain cleared they had it built in a day and a half.

, This was the best construction company we have ever used.  Kevin and all of his crew were very professional  prompt and proficient.  They always did what they promised, and were very neat and always cleaned the area. They aiways went the extra mile to do what I asked them to do. All of our friends and family are impressed because the porch looks like the orignal design of the house and does not look like an attachment We love our new porch..

ADeck & Fence Renewal Systems
From first contact to completion of the job, Deck & Fence Renewal Systems exceeded expectations. The company was responsive to my requests for an estimate, and was willing to work with me on pricing, The tone of all communications was respectful and even friendly, and the information provided was accurate and helpful. The company was particularly helpful when it came to considering different materials (I decided on a composite porch) and discussing possible project challenges. The work crew arrived on time and worked the entire day. They were friendly, discreet, and highly professional. They kept the site exceedingly clean. Most important, I am very satisfied with the new porch (and repaired pillars, railing, etc.), which looks and feels great. I've already recommended the company to friends, and would strongly recommend Greg Peters and his crew to anyone considering similar work. I plan to have the company complete other work on the property. Excellent experience overall.

APatio Enclosures
I got two other estimates besides Patio Enclosures. The salesman from Patio Enclosures, Steve Bell, who came to my house for the estimate and presentation, did such a great job and was so thorough that I knew right then and there Patio Enclosures would do a great job and give me the type of screened-in-porch I wanted. After the permits were obtained, Steve Eickelberger came and tore the old-worn out porch down. He and another worker built the new screened-in-porch. It looks fantastic and I am extremely happy with the work that was done. Steve E. did a great job. He was very approachable and very professional. Everyone in the neighborhood has commented on how nice the new porch looks and what an improvement it is.

FBryant Hartke Construction
Bryant-Hartke Construction… IFFY at best… . IF you don’t care Bryant-Hartke ever completes your project. IF you have TWO YEARS to waste trying to get your project completed. IF you don’t mind Bryant-Hartke’s inferior quality craftmanship. IF you want Bryant-Hartke to build you an unsafe staircase. IF you don’t mind Bryant-Hartke REVOKES THEIR WARRANTY and does not honor warranty and refuses to repair their substandard work. IF you would like months of zero communication with your Bryant-Hartke contractor. IF you are okay Bryant-Hartke arbitrarily closes your project . IF you don’t mind Bryant-Hartke leaves construction garbage on your premises for a year. IF you want to complete portions of your contracted job yourself. IF you have thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours to waste… then Bryant-Hartke Construction is for you! . My fiascos started on June 6, 2016, I wrote a $6,000. check to hire Bryant-Hartke Contractors. By most assessments, it’s a smallish $12,000. VERY BASIC job to build a new porch, staircase to the basement, new box gutters, miscellaneous trim work and painting. The primary reason for choosing BH was because they warranty their work. . SUBSTANDARD CRAFTSMANSHIP- Today, most of these items are still incomplete. The few completed items are of substandard craftmanship. Bryant-Harte’s inferior workmanship created new problems on my property. Bryant-Hartke has caused more damage than they fixed. +The new basement staircase has TWO loose dangerous steps. +Concrete was removed to install the stairs which has now allowed MUD to pour into my basement with each rain. +Bryant-Hartke contractors’ poorly designed and installed a porch stair’s hand- rail that creates dangerous water/ice buildup on steps in winter. +Porch railing shoddily affixed with metal clips. +New box gutters now drips on the top porch step causing dangerous ice buildup in winter. +Trim nails which should hold trim molding to the façade, are literally hanging unaffixed dangling in the air! +Bryant-Hartke contractors replaced the same wrong fascia board THREE TIMES!?! . TURNOVER- During these two years, Bryant-Hartke sent two crews and at least five project managers, Levi Sutter, Project Manager #2 (not around long enough to get his name), Rob O’Brien, Terry Settles and Shawn Kreider, none capable of completing this small basic job. Internally, there’s a lot trash talk and finger pointing among Bryant-Hartke employees and about us customers, especially Terry Settles. On my project Bryant-Hartke employees blamed each other for the cancellation of the project. I couldn’t get a reasonable or truthful answer. . NONCOMMUNICATION- crickets… crickets… Weeks turn into months that go by with ZERO communications from Bryant-Hartke. B-H employees will promise answers but will not get back to you! This point cannot be emphasized enough, IF contracting with Bryant-Hartke – be prepared for months of frustration and noncommunication!! . UNRELIEABLE- NO SHOWS – Bryant-Hartke representatives disrespect YOUR time and money! I’ve lost track of how many times crews were no shows and project managers were NO SHOWS to appointments with me. . BRYANT-HARTKE REVOKES WARRANTY - PROFITS OVER CUSTOMER SATISFACTION-Every Bryant-Hartke project manager that came to my premises stated my complaints and concerns of inferior workmanship are reasonable… but they never cared to correct and finish the project due to Bryant-Harte contractors' costly errors that cut into their profits. . February 2, 2108 Bryant-Hartke’s Michelle Momany sent me a letter stating “we find it in the best interest of both parties to close your project.” ….. “I will mark your project paid and closed. Please note that this does not fall under warranty status.” . Nothing about Bryant-Hartke’s forced cancellation action is in MY best interest! I now have an incomplete project and inferior workmanship which Bryant-Hartke now refuses to warranty!!! . JULY 2018 - After prodding and protesting, I managed to get a new project manager on site. Bryant-Hartke’s manager Shawn Kreider agreed with substandard craftmanship. He agreed to work toward completion. He stated his bewilderment as to why the minor issues still lingered and caused such completion difficulties for Bryant-Hartke crews. . August 2, 2018, Onsite, Shawn Kreider, Bryant-Hartke project manager, told me Bryant-Hartke Contractors will likely refuse to honor their quality-workmanship warranty because by doing so, it would cost them money to repair the inferior work on my project! . As of this review, October 24, 2018, I have heard nothing in response to my pleas for further movement on the project. This project is still incomplete! . BUYER BEWARE!!!! The effort necessary to keep your project moving forward to completion will wear you out! And in my case, after TWO YEARS it’s still not over!?! .

AJPK'S LAWN & LANDSCAPING
JEFF KOESTER WAS RECOMMENDED BY A NEIGHBOR, AND PROMPTLY RESPONDED TO MY REQUEST FOR INFORMATION (PRIOR TO THE PORCH'S CONSTRUCTION).

NEXT, HE SKETCHED THE PLANTS AND BED LOCATIONS, AND PROVIDED A LIST OF THE PROPOSED PLANTS. I SAID I DIDN'T LIKE ONE OF THE PLANT CHOICES, AND HE QUICKLY PROVIDED ANOTHER PLANT WITH SIMILAR COLORING. JEFF STAYED IN TOUCH AS THE PORCH WORK CONTINUED, THEN KEPT ME INFORMED OF SCHEDULE AS RAIN HAMPERED PROGRESS. ONCE THE WORK STARTED, IT WAS COMPLETED QUICKLY! THE WORK AREA WAS KEPT CLEAN, AND THE LIGHTING LOOKS FABULOUS. I DEFINITELY WOULD USE JPK S AGAIN, AND HAVE ALREADY RECOMMENDED THE COMPANY TO FRIENDS!

I contacted Kevin for an estimate after reading his positive reviews on this site. After the initial estimate/ meeting with Kevin I was very impressed by his honesty and professional opinion on the job that I wanted to be done. He told me what he thought about the design of the porch and walkway that I had come up with and help to point out some things I hadn't thought about. I accepted his proposal and as soon as the weather was good he and his crew showed up to do the work. They all showed up at about 7:30-8:00 am ready to get to work! Dumptruck with bobcat and maybe 3 vans with all the men needed to get the job done right and fast. The edging on the concrete looks great and I am very pleased with his work. I would recommend him to anyone in my area of town.
