    Wallace Homes
    Excellent all around service and results. Wally spent considerable time thoroughly evaluating the extent of damage in order to accurately determine the costs of repair vs rebuild - which included onsite consultations with structural and geotechnical experts. Ultimately decided to rebuild. Wally incorporated multiple engineering improvements at the soil, foundation, and framing levels to ensure the new structure would be vastly more earthquake resistant than the original. His team/crews have proven excellent craftsmen and easy to work with - from the architect, to the excavator and framing and finishing crews, etc. I consider the result an ideal blend of craftsmanship and value. My house is medium sized (2400 sq ft) but Wally has also built some magnificent homes in my neighborhood that are much bigger and more complex. He can also handle extensive repairs, as he is doing for a neighbor of mine (also quake damaged), and therefore I'm certain he could do wonders with just regular renovations as well. During the entire process I always felt he was giving me his honest answers and thoughts.

    Spartan Contracting
    Renovation went excellently. in addition to executing work, Spartan provided design recommendations. Spartan were available for questions, responded in a timely manner, and worked within our guidelines. The work was done well. The project costs and timelines were explained clearly and appropriate documentation was provided.

    The old deck wrapped around an old tree. Mike Ferguson and I discussed the new deck options. He suggested a shorter, longer deck to avoid the tree. They drove the pilings for the new deck in the wrong place and built the deck anyway. I now have a deck with a railing breached by the tree. MCF Construction should be avoided by everybody!

    What a headache to deal with byler construction. None of their timelines are correct. Had me schedule inspection with nothing complete, not hooked up to utilities, house had debris all over the inside, sink holes on the property from them burying trash/debris and downed trees all over property. Inside nothing is done with care... counters show seams all over, outlets stop working and dont reset, control boxes are laying on the ground in the crawlspace in standing water not supported and with conductors showing, none of the receptacles match the prints, conductors chafing on K.O. holes (horrible electricians, I am a commercial electrician and their work is unacceptable, electrician should be fired). They took numerous short cuts including leaving standing water in the crawl space, concrete walls are soaked that they covered up with insulation. Not only are they not wanting to fix their mistakes, they do not hold up to their end of the contract. They promise D1 gravel driveway with base layer and top layer and provided a dirt driveway calling it complete... same one a week earlier that had 8 inch ruts in from their trucks that they just compacted down again. They do not hold up their end of the agreement, not sure how they are still in business. They always want to "come back after closing" well like other reviews say... they won't come back and their handshake means nothing, or a contract for that matter when they cut corners and call things complete to save money. I gave them a chance even after seeing their horrible reviews and was a big mistake. Their good reviews come from friends and family or their selling agent for example ofcourse leaves a perfect review. Take your business elsewhere, these people are not trustworthy and do not make things right... probably the worst contractor in the valley. I understand mistakes happen but they will not fix them or abide by the contract and give you what's promised.

    Jensen Construction
    It took a little time for us to get together for est. But when it came to performing the work I had a lot of imperfection to over come but the work was excellent. Dave gave me a quote off the top of his head said it would be high end (over).Insure he went over but he only charged me what he quote.

    We started with a kitchen remodel which morphed into a den, kitchen and downstairs bathroom.  Removing the original 1977 cabinetry and bringing the walls down to the studs and removing the kitchen linoleum and the den carpeting while we lived in the home is not an easy situation.  Telemark Construction worked well the Alaska Granite, Creative Kitchen, Wright Electric and all of the other subcontractors and their delivery/performance schedules.  Timing around running water was important.  The work was wonderfully executed and timely and they cleaned as they went.  Attention to detail was important and more than once our ideas were modified with much better ideas provided by Kjell Nordgaard.  If you can do anything but you can't do everything you need Kjell.  His approach and his employees kept on schedule, which is not any easy task when coordinator all the aspects of appliance deliveries, granite and cabinet installation.  His enthusiasm for our home was compelling.  This was the second time we have worked with Telemark Construction.  In 2009 he remodeled our upstairs bedrooms.  There is a cost in doing things right and an even greater cost in doing things wrong.  The right thing to do is to have someone who thoroughly understands the process be a part of your team.  Kjell worked with our budget, he did expand the scope AND THAT WAS BRILLIANT!!!

    My husband and I felt working with Alborn Construction was one of the most positive experiences we have had in a long time.  We have lived in Anchorage, AK for 33 years.  Our garage had severe water damage from a flat roof and snow melt. When we decided to use some of our savings (we just retired) to get the garage repaired, we didn't even know where to start.  After taking some classes on how to work with choosing and working with a general contractor, we contacted 7 different general contractors to come by and offer a bid.  We were shocked to see how few even bothered to get back to us.  When we called Alborn Construction, we were a little taken back by how patient  they were with all our initial questions.  Adam Alborn (owner) got back to us right away and set up an appointment to come to our home and evaluate the situation.  He showed up with his Assistant Manager (Pat) and walked the premises with us.  Now I would rather be dragged over hot coals than try to communicate in the male world of construction.  But Adam and Pat were so professional and truly interested in my questions.  Never once did I feel as a woman that  these men were talking down to me.  We later met with Adam at his office at a later date.  Several other general contractors who had offered bids did not even have offices, but not Alborn.  You pull up to a lovely office building, greeted by a friendly front office secretary and a waiting area.  Our meeting with Adam was amazing in that he spent an hour going over the bids in Alaska are so high; he went over in great detail the costs of demolishing the building, incorporating plans from an architect (Ben was extremely talented), permits from the city....the list was overwhelming on that day.  We left understanding why you need a general contractor. Think about it: demolition team, disposing of all concrete and wood; excavation, ground samples, municipality inspectors, electricians, plumbers, concrete team, lights, garage door, water heater, masonry, white boarding, lumber and studs to code, painters, asphalt trucks and teams and teams of people. My husband was fascinated; all I could think of was all those men using our bathroom!  But Adam and Pat assured us that they had it all in a plan; and yes, they brought the construction workers their own port a potty!  So we signed on with Alborn and have been smiling every day since.  What a great group of people.   My initial impression on the first day they showed up was they were on time (as they did every day for 2 months).  Secondly, all their trucks were clean, white and clearly stated Alborn Construction.  This may sound silly, but I appreciated the way all the guys on the construction team had shirts that said Alborn on them.  It helped us later determine who was a subcontractor on site. On that first day they literally had someone supervising the traffic lane on our little neighborhood street while they brought in big trucks and very noisy pounding machines.  Again, my husband thought it was all an adventure: I was worried if our neighbors would tar and feather us.  But they were always considerate of the neighbors, school buses, trying not to block mailboxes and here is their greatest asset: Adam insists that his team of construction men never leave without picking up the site so it is not messy.  Can you believe it?  A tidy general contractor!   Sean, the Alborn on-site Supervisor was really a force to be reckoned with.  He was brilliantly skilled in so many areas of work.  He reviewed every bit of construction completed, always polite and made my husband and I feel as though we truly had a say in how our new addition was going to come together. Our beautiful garage was completed right on time about the end of June.  They did a magnificent job.  Much to our surprise, they got the final inspector (I think there were close to 12 inspector visits required in all) out to review the whole structure; within a few days we had our Certificate of Occupancy.  We just got our property assessment done and the workmanship of Alborn Construction ended up hiking the property value of our home from $272,000 to $308,000. People don't understand how chaotic our Alaska summers are. Everyone is trying to get their homes repaired and strong for the upcoming seasons.  We were extremely fortunate to have hired Alborn Construction to help us.  It was obvious from the beginning that Adam and his company knew how to get things done in Anchorage.  We will always be grateful that we found this group; the crew, the managers...they all demonstrated experience and organizational skills that pull it all together.  Well done guys.

    Alaska Decks & More LLC
    I had a large truck crash at my home and take out several feet of fencing and hit a 10 X 20 wood deck. I wanted to get the entire 20 year old 6 foot cedar fence replaced and I wanted the 10 X 20 wood deck rebuilt. I decided to get the 10 X 20 deck finished in Trex Transcends. My neighbor works for a Hot Tub company and said they use this company for all there demo decks and recommend them to their hot tub customers who need a deck built. The company Representative Nathan Smith responded to my home to go over the project in one day. When he responded he looked at the entire situation, making suggestions that I had not even thought of and am glad he brought up. I had a written proposal the next day. The price on the work was very competitive. I had gotten bids from a fencing company, a company that did just decks, and a 3rd company that offered to do both the fence and deck. Alaska Decks and More's bid on the fence was 2,000 dollars less than the fence only company and about the same on the company that offered to do the fence and deck. There bid on the deck was lower than all the other companies and they were also offering to pull up the deck planks on a non-damaged wood deck and replace them with matching Trex Transcends boards. I was able to pay the deposit (half of the total price) with a credit card, it is safer than paying with a check in case there is a problem. The work started two weeks later. The work crew was on time everyday and worked late a few days in order to get some things done. The work crew was friendly and explained any questions that I had about what was going on. The project took a couple days longer than what was planed, but it was raining heavily almost everyday slowing the crew down. The work crew cleaned up everything and there was no damage to my lawn or property.

    John's Excavating, Inc
    The very best of the best are always busy. John's Excavating is at the top of that list. We had water in our crawl space. A french drain was the only solution. We contacted more than 6 companies to get an estimate. Two came to look. The one that did povide an estimate was vague,elusive and outrageous in price. Finally we found John,s Excavating. He explaind in detailed what was needed and what he was going to do. Work started promptly on time and was finished a day ahead of schedule. John took total control of the project, stating that "this is my reputation on the line". He is a true man of his word. I was extremely impressed by his extensive knowledge and experience. He knew what he was doing. The attention to detail on every aspect of the job showed his professionalism. He inspected and kept track of his workers. Roger and Rocky are no slackers. Both showed genuine concern for the job. Both took great pride in doing a good job. As with any project, there are the unexpected situations that pop up. John dealt with these with ease. For every problem, John had a solution. When it was all over and done with, I shook the hand of a truely honest man.
