    Bison Constructors
    In 2015-2016 Jason (Bison Constructors) completely transformed the exterior of my house. There was severe dry-rot that had destroyed the 2nd floor deck and had eaten into structural beams holding up the 2nd floor bedroom. The board and batten siding was in seriously dilapidated condition. We had several dry-rot experts come to assess the damage. One said we should move out immediately because the house was about to fall down. He said he would charge $80K to repair the damage. Another contractor estimated $100K. Others wouldn't touch the project. We found Bison Constructors online and asked Jason to come out and inspect the damage. He noted that the 2nd floor was actually sagging several inches. He said he would have to remove some of the siding to see how the beams were run before he could give us an estimate. We gave him the go-ahead to remove what he needed to give us the estimate. I thought that was a good sign, that he was the first one to delve deep enough to find out what was going on before throwing out a huge bid. I braced myself waiting for his bid. Finally he sent us back a bid for $12,000. He showed us exactly what he would do, jacking up the second floor, replacing and reinforcing structural vertical beams, replacing horizontal beams on the other side of the house, completely rebuilding a new deck and replacing the rotting board and batten siding all around the house. We really had a sense that Jason knew what he was talking about and that we were in safe hands. The bid was so low compared to what we were expecting that we threw in replacing 2 sliders and 5 windows. That was phase one. I wanted a permanent solution to the board and batten siding that was still vulnerable to rot and needed a thorough paint job. I found a pre-painted composite siding called LP Smartside which is dry-rot and termite resistant and has a 30 year warranty. Jason gave us an estimate to tear off all the old batten and board siding and replace it with the Smartside, install a new chimney, replace 2 doors and 3 more windows. The price was very reasonable and he let me do any painting involved which saved me money. He researched the Smartside product to make sure he was installing it according to the manufacturer's specifications. The end result was stunning as you can see in the before and after pictures. Not only does it look like a new house it is also structurally sound and resistant to dry-rot and termites. Throughout the whole project Jason was the best person to work with. He always listened to what we wanted and worked with us to figure out the best way to do things. He would always keep us informed of what was going on, any possible delays or variations in cost that are inevitable on any big project. He also cooperated well with another contractor that was installing new gutters. He's extremely hard working, dependable and very smart. Also respectful of our privacy, didn't play loud music, etc. always cleaned up. We were really grateful to find Jason and refer him to all of our friends who need work done on their homes. Jason replaced a window for a friend of mine and the result came out fantastic. When the old window was removed the stucco had to be torn out 3 inches around the frame of the window. Jason replaced the window and repaired the stucco so well you can't tell it was repaired. See the picture! My friends are extremely happy with the way it turned out. We all agree that Jason is a true professional in every sense of the word. Thanks Jason for the amazing job you did on our house! You're the best!
