General Contracting reviews in Des Moines

    I really hate to give Tim this review, because when people find out how good he is, he will get too busy and it will be hard to get on his schedule, but Mawdsley Home Improvement is a well run company and I heartily recommend the service. The first contact was a call from his wife to schedule an appointment. She was extremely friendly and efficient. When Tim found he was running late for the appointment, he called before he was late. He gave a reasonable quote, scheduled the work and showed up on time. Everything was done as promised. He didn't leave a mess. He even took pictures during the job to show us things that were too high for us to see. I ordered the replacement screen door and it has not arrived yet, but I am confident Tim will do the same great job when the door arrives.

    Mid States Carpenters Group Corporation
    I was very pleased with the work Judd Penny and his crew did on our house. His assessment of problems included addressing original construction flaws as well as fixing more recent inadequate roof repair work done by another contractor. Judd's familiarity with and appreciation of old house "character" was evident when he first came over to look at the job and weighed heavily in the decision to choose Mid-States for our restoration project. The work was completed for the quoted price, accommodating a number of "surprises" along the way that inevitably arise with work on old houses, like those mentioned in other reviews. Our job took longer than initially projected but to me that just seems to be the nature of the beast. Alternatives and options were clearly explained throughout the process, when decisions needed to be made to complete repairs needed but still keep within budget. I do not hesitate to recommend contacting Mid-States for home maintenance and improvements work. We will be using their services again.

    Red House Remodeling
    Red House did a remodel on our kitchen, we were very happy with the process. Ben and his team provide great communication through all phases of the remodel. They were upfront with pricing and were able to deal with any challenges that came up during construction.

    Judd and team did a great job of working with me to complete this job. We discussed the project in detail to determine what needed to be complete by him, and what I might could do on my own. I am very happy with the work he performed. He was also careful to ensure the removal of the old header was not as destructive as it could have been. For example, in my case, the walls were built in a way that the garage sheet rock did not need to be removed, and he ensured he did not remove any of it. This made the project much easier to complete.

    Daughenbaugh Construction & Restoration
    From the first phone call to David(Daughenbaugh Restoration owner) to the closing of our project we are so pleased with his services and his whole team. David was always there to answer questions promptly. His team was very professional and very skilled tradesman! Which now days you really have to worry about that. We would hire Daughenbaugh Restoration again without a hesitation. We are actually talking about adding a addition already and David will be doing that project for us as well!

    Daughenbaugh Construction & Restoration
    Excellent. Materials and crew showed up in a timely manner, the crew was very polite and friendly, and they worked hard! Excellent workmanship, all the framing was done professionally, and it passed the city building inspector on the first visit. This was a big job, they had large equipment to lift and set the trusses. They installed windows and doors, everything is level and plumb. I'm thrilled with how smoothly this job went.

    Midwest Remodel And Handyman
    Perfectly. Work performed well in a timely fashion, and he cleans up each day so you don't even know he has been there. On the window, he had an idea that not only saved money but provided a solution that should last for a 100 years. This is the third or fourth time I have used Midwest Remodel and Handyman and I will use Tony again the next time I have a household repair.

    All Trades Construction and Maintenance Inc
    Todd provided consulting of door specifications for a customer order door. He also completed the installation. The challange was the the opening would not allow for a standard door size. After we as the home owners had excavated & replaced the exterior basment steps it was was revealed that door frame work was not square and was impacted by the basement walls. Our house was built in 1925. Todd was able to view the exposed basement steps work prior to its completion. There was more than one site visit by him to determine the approach to installation for the door.Todd provided specs for us to order the door and met with us.& our vendor to review the specs before ordering. The installation went smoothly. Todd made no less than 3 site visits & many communications with us along the way. This was the 3rd time that we have used his services.

    Scott's Home Renewal
    All aspects on the job went smoothly. I was especially impressed that I called him last minute and he was able to fit this job in quickly so my carpenter could get started in the space. It was obvious that he went above and beyond to get this job done quickly for us. I think other contractors would have told me they couldn't do the job when I asked, I only gave him a week's notice. He worked hard to get it completed for us even though we were first time customers. Also, I live in an old home and the walls in my son's room look like a new construction home now. I am impressed.

    Des Moines Area Roofing
    Our 20+ year old roof had been patched several times but serious leakage around the brick fireplace, sagging roof areas and minor occasional leaks in other areas prompted us to have the entire roof replaced.
    Obtained estimates from three very qualified companies and pricing was comparable across all three. One adjustment I made in comparing them was the number of sheets of plywood that would need to be replaced. Having been on the roof with Tim, we agreed that there would need to be more sheets replaced than the 3 shown on Tim's standard estimate but we would not be able to determine how many until the old shingles came off. I factored in many additional sheets at the per-sheet price to make the number of sheets to be replaced consistent across all three companies. Tim's estimate came in somewhat under the others.
    Throughout the estimating, scheduling, construction and follow-up process, Tim was always easy to get in touch with and kept me apprised of what was happening. He has a thorough knowledge of up-to-date roofing technologies and processes. One of the reasons I chose his company was his recommendations on the best approach for what needed to be done. His willingness and patience in answering my probably never-ending list of questions was another reason.
    His crew is professional and hard-working. When rain interrupted work, the stripped areas of roof were tarped. The crew worked until dark to make up for lost time on a one-day job that turned into a two-day job for circumstances out of their control.
    Tim and his crew did a great job of accomplishing what we needed. Des Moines Area Roofing did a great job for us.
