    K and K Quality Construction
    It was excellent. He has very good ideas and listen to my ideas, and put things together. He's very easy to work with and very professional.

    The quality and attention to detail is very poor. The company is unresponsive and really could not care less about their customers. Demand is so high that people are desperate to purchase any house.

    Kirt Johnson Construction
    We hired Kirt Johnson for remodel of our basement on 9/18/2020 and gave him a 50% deposit totaling $6685 for him to purchase materials that included framing, drywall, electrical, drop ceiling tiles, and lifeproof vinyl flooring. We were told by Kirt that the basement remodel would be starting the next week, as he had guys ready to work. We also gave Kirt a deposit totaling $10340 on 10/25/2020 for replacement of siding for our entire home (insurance money from Liberty Mutual for tornado damage). There has been delay after delay and always an excuse from Kirt regarding why the work isn't being done. We have been asking for receipts or invoices to prove materials have been purchased for over one month and he has been unable to provide these, stating he has so many receipts he is unable to keep track of them all. As of today, 12/1/2020 no work has been started on the siding or basement and no materials have ever arrived to our residence. He told us that he purchased siding from 2 separate Menards, however, we called every Menards and Home Depot in our area to check on the order status, and found no orders purchased under his name or our name/phone numbers (including materials for flooring, framing materials, or drywall). Every day he states that there has been a delay in the delivery, promising it will arrive the next day which it never does. We believe that he took over $17,000 dollars of our money and we have nothing to show for it. Despite repeatedly asking where materials were purchased, for any receipts, invoices, or order numbers we have not received any of these. We also asked for the name of the electrician that was supposed to begin work week after week, always with a delay/excuse, but he is unable to also provide this. We also offered to pay for materials already purchased if receipts were provided, but they have not been. We have no idea where this money has gone and have repeatedly asked for our money to be returned which he has not provided. This business is fraudulent. DO NOT HIRE!!!

    Kirt Johnson Construction
    I signed a contract in April for building a pergola and paid $1400 for materials. There were delays in supply chain due to Covid, at the beginning, but by end of summer, materials were available and supposedly had been ordered on April 20, 2020. After 3 promised dates to build the pergola and a letter to either build the pergola or send me a refund by the end of September, I have neither.

    Redwood Builders
    I did the typical homeowner thing where I anticipate being able to handle a project and quickly found I was in a bit over my head. I was hoping to do some finish work on my basement and thought everything would be simple. It proved to be a bit beyond my understanding and I went to Angie's list and a few other places for help. I ended up finding Redwood Builders (Jared) on Angie's list. He was semi local to me which was nice and made it easy for him to stop by one morning before I left for work. I had two other people out to look at the possible work as well. I ended up going with Redwood Builders for the job because I felt most comfortable with Jared compared to the others I had talked with. Overall it worked out very well. He was very open in communicating what was going to be done when and on what day. Overall everything has stayed relatively on time to what we discussed. The overall cost was higher than I had wanted to spend, but that is more to do with what I believe was my poor estimating on what real work costs. Compared to the other people I talked to he was right in line with them as far as costs go. On the costs, what I have appreciated is his openness to adjustments as we go. Initially we discussed a baseline cost for the project. He has stuck with that, but because of my request for an additional thing here or an additional item there the cost did increase. He never really said no to anything and just explained that might be an additional cost, gave me a rough idea of the cost, and we ended up going forward. In my work, I work with a lot of different contractor types in different industries and frankly I wish all were as personable and easy going as Jared. He did a good portion of the work himself. He did sub out some portions of the work, but the items he subbed out were done well by people that were professional and worked well and quickly. I know he had some personal issues pop up during the tail end of our job. Short of letting me know he really did not miss a beat. I fully would have understood any delays but he was very professional and very set on finishing what he had agreed to. I would gladly use Jared again on any possible future job and would recommend him to anyone looking.

    CAT Contracting Inc
    We had a flat roof on a commercial facility which was experiencing leaking.  After further investigation and multiple estimates, CAT Contracting determined that a replacement was not necessary (which we had been told by all other contractors) and that repairs would take care of problem.  This saved us over $80,000 and they also provided a warranty.  They made quick work by using many workers and completed job in record time.

    Sean Adams Custom Carpentry
    Sean's crews arrived on schedule as weather allowed and completed the work in the contract on a timely basis. There were no glitches in the excavation or the concrete work and framing began on time. The house was enclosed and roofed in a reasonable period of time, with one small window problem with the supplier. Sean's people worked with the supplier to remedy the problem in short order. The only other problem came when the electrical sub-contractor ran the underground service line to the wrong power pole at the road, and that problem was resolved with no additional expense to me. The remainder of finishing work was either done by my wife and me or we sub-contracted it to other firms in the area. Ours was an unusual situation and I do not recommend it to any one unfamiliar with construction. At the time we built, I had 20+ years experience in the field. After living in the house for five years, we have found no problems with the work in the Sean Adams contract and we would recommend them to any one building a home from scratch.
