Looked for weeks to find someone to do this seemingly simple, small job. Finally found Capitol Construction Services. John bid on it and it was a great price and his carpenter Christian did an excellent job. He demolished the old porch and stairs, piled the trash up so one of his contractors could haul it off at the end. Christian did a great job rebuilding the stars and porch, taking time to make sure it was done well and looked good. Took extra time to get it right and went beyond just doing what was necessary. John, the owner was very responsive as was Christian and their office assistant, Sommer was very professional and kept in communication during the job. Would hire them again in an instant.

This included: pouring new slab and overlaying old slab, replacing rotten support post and adding two new posts, framing roof area, tying new roof to old, raising chimney to code height, hanging recessed lighting, installing outdoor ceiling fan, finishing new plugs for patio and new switches for fans and lights, installing corner lights along back of patio and house, removal of a portion of pool decking and tying slab to remaining decking, and final clean up and punch list items. He was also responsible for coordinating with other contractors who did siding, windows, and roofing. He was very professional and helpful in all aspects of his work. I have photos of his work just before others vendors began their work.

AOn The Porch
Mr. Greer arrived on Saturday morning and by Saturday afternoon I had new porch awning to replace the rotten existing roof. Mr. Greer was fast, friendly and very neat. I have more projects planned for him in the very near future. For no extra charge On the Porch power washed the sid\walk leading up to the porch. What a nice suprise.

Demolition was done in timely manner with minimal disruption to household. Removal of debris performed promptly. Rebuilding of new roofing and cutting into existing roof line made for seamless transition from existing roof to new porch roofing. Project manager / owner was quick to discuss changes as needed throughout process.

Jim, the supervisor was excellent with my mom (it was her house) and she is elderly and difficult to explain things to. My mom loved the construction man that did all of the work. We will request him again if we need anything else done. Everything was done according to the bid, they were timely and even early with the painting. It looks very nice and we are pleased with the service and the price for everything they did was fair. They even changed out an extra board under the porch that was rotten and installed a new porch light for me (I purchased it) so I did not have to do it.

AMorningstar Landscaping & Construction Inc.
Everything Jodi Phillips of Morningstar Landscaping did from beginning to end was excellent! From the initial contact to design and planning, throughout the entire process to ongoing check-ups on plant progress Jodi was professional and receptive to our concepts and needs. Her predictions of timing, cost and outcome were perfect. She and her crew are punctual, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We could not be happier with the re-do of our front and back yards. Communication was open and frequent with e-mail ideas and suggestions flowing freely. We were kept in the loop continuously and updated on scheduling and such things as plant availability. I also appreciated greatly their consideration for our silly dogs; they were very careful to keep gates closed. Jodi also arranged for and oversaw landscape lighting and irrigation adjustments, making sure that all was customized for our needs. The entire team showed a true pride in their work and desire to make sure everything was done well and safely. Cleanup was done at the end of each day. We are very happy with the outcome of our project and will certainly use Morningstar Landscaping and Jodi Phillips again in the future.

ASheds and More
From start to finish, Sheds and More was an outstanding client experience ! From the initial discussions to the project completion, Carl and William were very professional and kept me informed of all work being done. The work started with just adding me a porch and doing siding work on my back porch. They did such and outstanding job, I had them also do my entire house. Just an amazing transformation ! They also rebuilt my wood structure in front of entry way that was damaged due to a bee hive that had to be removed a couple of years back. They also rebuilt my chimney structure that was rotted badly due to exposure to weather (prior to porch being put in - never will be a problem now!) They even modified my gutter system to take full advantage of my new porch and reduce the stress that existed with just the single gutter system. Entire house - bad siding replaced, re-caulked, and repainted. In short, the house looks like new and given what I spent it was WELL WORTH the $. You may find quotes slightly cheaper, but Sheds and More's quality was well worth the money I spent. HIGHLY recommend !

AHandyman for Hire
Pete was great, and we would definitely have him back. He really knows his stuff, and is a pleasure to work with. Weather thwarted us from getting projects started, but he kept in touch and used the time to price out some additional options for us. Although Pete calls himself a handyman, his advice on design and materials was excellent, and you really get the benefit of his experience. We have had lots of compliments on our new porch railings, from neighbors, friends, and random dog-walkers. It looks great, is very sturdy, and goes with the old porch amazingly well. Similarly, the trim of the dishwasher is exquisite; Pete went to Ikea to get a piece of material that would match the cabinets, so it looks as if it were all done at the same time. Pete works incredibly hard and fast -- the projects do not drag on, he gets things done. He is also very neat and cleans up after his project very carefully. I strongly recommend Pete -- we will definitely have him come back for other projects.

My husband arranged for someone from Add-a-deck to come give us an estimate for a new porch about one month ago. The contractor did not show up. I called the next week and the man I spoke with said it was not on the calendar and he apologized. We scheduled a new date but had to call and cancel due to a conflict. Most recently we scheduled a new time and Richard did not show up again. We tried to call at the time, but no one answered and no one has called us back.
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: I had a raised wooden deck with a pergola. Breezy By Nature removed the pergola, installed a porch roof and screened it in. They did an excellent job and the project was completed within a week. It looks like it was always a part of the house. To keep bugs out, they caulked all around the edges where the porch meets the house and even screened under the deck ay my request. They also used “superscreen” on the porch, which is stronger and can withstand our cats climbing on it. Henry Parker, the owner, was great to work with. We have really been enjoying the porch. It has added a lot more usable space to our house.

Recent Review: They had lots of options for size and for color of the canvas. They were very patient to explain everything. It was installed on Sept. 5, 2013 and is very professionally done. We have had many compliments and are very happy with the shade. It has a great warranty and it is obvious by the workmanship why they are able to warranty their work so fully.

Recent Review: We began our outdoor project with the idea of adding an outdoor living space. After our first bid from a different outdoor living company (which was very high) we started thinking about scaling back the porch so that we could possibly accommodate a pool too. We met with Majestic Poolscapes about the pool and they recommended us to Matt and Southern Outdoor Appeal. Frankly, we weren't giving Matt and SOA a very fair shot to win our business. He was referred to us late in the game and we had already received CAD designs from other porch companies. We told him we like to operate quickly and transparently and even though we were deep in the process with other companies, we hadn't really experienced that in our other bids/estimates. We told him what we wanted, how behind he was in the quoting process, and how quickly we needed it. He freed up time in his schedule to meet with us the next day, got us the initial numbers by late that same night and gave us an official quote the next day. He followed that with the official CAD design as quickly as his team could render it. What we got were very fair numbers, without sacrificing quality, and the design fit very well with the design of the pool. We also left our meeting with Matt with a high degree of confidence that he and his crew would work well with our pool contractor and their crews. There were a couple of hiccups on scheduling during the project but that was to be expected when you have several crews coming and going and they have to deal with the weather, inspections, other work being completed, etc. All in all it was a very well coordinated effort that made the best of what mother nature gave them. When there were changes, Matt explained what changed, gave us practical options to choose from and kept them as close as possible to the original budget and design. He and his team had a high attention to detail. He was always stopping by and making sure his team was touching up stuff before we even had to point it out. Even came by to fine tune the finished product (when he didn't have to) while we were on vacation. It was a nice touch and nice surprise to come back to. He was personable, passionate about what he does and could tell he and his crew took great pride in their work. All around a great experience. I will gladly be a reference for SOA.
