    Natural Breeze Remodeling
    We had to wait to get our project started but the results proved the wait was well worth it! The work started as projected and was completed slightly earlier than expected. The lead carpenter, the painters and all others involved were highly skilled, polite, and a great to work with. Eventually, we plan to have some additional work done on our home and we will not hesitate to go back to Natural Breeze Remodeling.

    Natural Breeze Remodeling
    I was extremely impressed with Natural Breeze! I worked mostly with Terry and Mike(lead carpenter), and although renovating is always stressful they made everything as seamless as possible. Terry provided honest feedback concerning the value of some of my project choices, he never once tried to push me to spend additional money and actually defaulted to less expensive options! Mike was genuine and always punctional, kept me informed along the way, and went above and beyond what I would have ever expected. The guys cleaned up and gave me as much of my home back every single day as they possibly could. There were a few bumps along the way, as I'm sure happens with every project(I've watched enough HGTV to know that!), but they were on it immediately. I always felt like they were there to advocate for me and never once questioned me or pushed back. I know they are not the cheap alternative in town, but I absolutely got the service and result that I was looking for. I will definitely use and recommend Natural Breeze for any future projects. Yes, I know it sounds goofy but they really are a breeze to work with.

    J Rich Drywall
    We called to set up an appt for a quote. He said he would be out "on Friday in the afternoon". He said he would call when he was on his way. We didn't receive a phone call and he never showed up. He DID call back the following Monday and via text set up another appt for that Wednesday at 6. Again....NO show, NO call. Sorry, but NO thanks.

    We never heard from then again.  If they didn't want to do the job, they could at least have had the courtesy to let us know, offer to do it later because it's probably a smaller job...or something.

    Benchmark Contractors Inc
    BENCHMARK CONTRACTORS never fail to deliver! I absolutely love the work they did installing my new Hardy Plank Siding. Hardy Plank can be a pain to put up because it's heavy AND fragile. The guys worked 5 days a week from 9:00-4:00pm breaking only for lunch. First, they removed the 25 year old wood that had rotted in some places on the house. Then they repaired the exterior wall siding over the fireplace. All the old guttering was removed from the house as well. New insulation was installed on the house. The guys followed Hardy Plank Siding guidelines during installation, making sure the siding stayed dry and free from moisture. During this time, I noticed a neighbor was also having her siding installed and in 2 or 3 days it was complete (and it didn't look so hot). BENCHMARK CONTRACTORS installed my new siding over a 2 week period. They took their time because quality matters to these guys. Quality of work is always more important than speed. That's what I love about these guys. You might pay a few extra bucks but the end result is ALWAYS worth it! I took several pictures of the exterior of my house and posted them. One look and you can tell my guys are professionals. Several months after my siding was installed, I drove to the old family farm in eastern Iowa. As luck would have it, I secured a beautiful set of old French doors from the farmhouse just before an upcoming demolition. I brought the doors home, leaned them against a bedroom wall, then called John Butler from BENCHMARK CONTRACTORS. I explained to John that I hit the jackpot and now I needed a hole cut in my bedroom wall to install these awesome French doors! Naturally, several questions come to mind whenever someone wants to cut a big hole in the wall. So John came to the house to check out the doors and assess the project. John indicated that the French doors were interior doors...but I wanted to use them as exterior doors (going from the master bedroom out into the back yard). I could visualize how beautiful these doors would look once they were installed in my master bedroom. Desperate, I looked at John and said, "do whatever you need to do John, but can you just make them work? Please???" And John Butler from Benchmark Contractors did just that! First the guys had to remove some of the new siding (sorry about that guys) and cut a new hole in the wall. I didn't have the original door frame, so they had to construct a new door frame. They installed the French doors and, in order to make them work in the bedroom, they added a set of custom made winter storm doors. The screen doors were made to match the narrow French doors. The paint on the exterior of the storm doors matched the new trim paint on the exterior of my house. I was totally pleased with the quality of the doors and the entire installation. The cost of the James Hardy siding for my house was $11,000. BENCHMARK CONTRACTORS installed the new siding and they built and framed-in my French doors from the family farm for $9,450. They siding is top quality and so was the installation. I do not anticipate ever having to replace it again. If you want average work, call your regular go-to guy. But if you've got a special project and you want it done right the first time, then call BENCHMARK CONTRACTORS located in Topeka, KS!

    Renovation MD
    The initial job was done extremely poorly.  There were trowel marks, seams, uneven mud, and lose tape everywhere.  We also discovered that they did not nail in the corner bead anywhere.  We called them to come back to evaluate and fix all the drywall problems.  They sent someone else to re-do the job and it was done only slightly better.  Now 4 months later, nearly every seam in the walls and ceiling are showing and tape is coming off.  There are bumps, trowel marks and uneven finishes everywhere including around every light switch. This is the worst sheetrock finishing job we have ever seen!  We cannot fully describe how poor of a job this company did. In trying to contact them regarding them coming back to fix the work, we had to contact them numerous times before ever recieving a phone call back.  This happened every time we had to have them come back.  All in all, they had to redo their inital job 3 times.  The 3rd time, they hired an outside contractor to do the repairs.  Now over a year after they initially did the work, the seams are worse than ever.  Not one person returning to do the job right, did so.  We will have to hire another company to come back and completely start from scratch.  We had to repaint the entire basement 3 times now because every "fix" job had to be "re-fixed".  The only thing I will say is that the company did agree to give us a check for $500 to cover the cost of the paint and labor to repaint the basement. We specifically hired this part of our finishing to be done by a "professional" because we wanted to make sure it was done well.  In the end, we should've saved th $2600 and done it ourselves.

    Renovation MD
    I give RenMD an overall grade of D because of the unfinished items. If everything was completed they would have received a C. 
    My initial feeling was that RenMD was not qualified (unable to produce photos of previous kitchen work). However we were running out of time and needed to get it started.
    As we got closer to spending 25K it was clear the job was not going to get done?Even after eliminating some major items like countertops, kitchen island, pantry shelving and the 20+ items mentioned below. 
    Job was canceled before completion. A list of unfinished work is detailed below. To be fair, I had RenMD put new siding on additional (approx 100 sq ft) location above the addition, which was not part of the bid.
    Overall quality was less than expected (new floor boards move up and down, new wall corners not square, some not even close). It?s hard to judge the finish work since most of it was not performed.
    PREJOB:
    Initial meetings went well, staff was cordial and able to discuss what was needed, but did not produce anything as far as a plan or any vague attempt to convey any details of the project. No finalized plan: No drawings, no blueprints, no sketches covering the details of the project (outlets, lightboxes, what?s removed, what stays & goes).  We received more drawings and plans from other contractors who didn?t get the job. The lack of a plan was a continuous burden throughout the project. Many decisions had to be made on the spot when client just happened to be there. These decisions were rushed and reduced the overall potential of the project. 
    In retrospect, I think RenMD was just going to go in and install cabinets over they old drywall, leave the outlets and do a minimal amount renovation. 
    CONSTRUCTION:
    Ren MD is paid by the hour. There is no incentive for efficiency and accountability. Client pays for mistakes, oversights and poor materials planning. Example 1:There is no incentive to prepare a materials list and consolidate trips to the store when client is paying for these supply runs. For the duration of the 4 week job there was an average of over 1 Home Depot run per day (15 minutes to the store + 15 minutes back + shopping time, all at $50/hr. Example 2: RenMD accidentally cuts a water line. Client pays for it to be fixed (then re-fixed with copper and solder). From the time of the original cut, clean-up, repair, rework there was potentially 3-6 hours in that situation alone?all of which is client paid. 
    We are very disappointed in RenMD and finding inadequacies on a weekly basis that eventually needed to be redone by client. Here are some of them:
    Trim Removal: Poorly handled trim, which is going to be reused, is scratched and thrown in a pile in the garage. Instead of keeping them organized and marking where it came from I have to pay someone $50/hr to figure out where it belongs, sand out and finish any scratches that originated from them being thrown into a pile. This goes back to hourly incentive and efficiency. Client had to organize and stack trim.
    Materials: Client paid an additional 10% on all materials, including cabinets & shelves and anything that was picked out by client prior to job start. That makes RenMD responsible for making sure the materials are correct when delivered. This was not done and resulted in a series of costly mistakes that prolonged the project and resulted in rework by RenMD, and later by Client.
    RenMd had the cabinets for at least a week in storage. No one checked to see if they were 1) the right size and, 2) if they were damaged. Two of the major cabinets were the wrong size, another was damaged, and several doors were damaged. Reordering cabinets added additional waiting time and ultimately additional costs of reworking already completed tasks (moving outlet, relocating gas line, delaying shelf placement). The new cabinet that replaced the broken cabinet is .25 inched taller that the rest which created problems for the counter that the client had to install.RenMD tried to fix broken cabinet with glue but result was not acceptable. RenMD replaced cabinet at no charge.
    Floating Shelves: Shelves were sitting in the kitchen for at least a week. Nobody checked to see the specified mounting requirements. All shelves required a specific number of contact points with the framing as described in the instructions located in the box of each shelf. In order to obtain the minimum required contact points areas in the framing behind drywall had to be reinforced, which was not done by RenMD. Client had to remove all the drywall (15? x 8?), reinforce studs, then re-sheetrock, mud, and finish. Client paid an additional 10% of the total cost of those shelves to RenMD.
    Floor Sanding: There are 12.5 hours of floor-sanding time logged in and the floor was far from done, not even close. I think they rented a flat vibrating sander instead of a drum sander. Floor had to be finished by client using a drum sander. It took my wife and I about 8 hours.
    SMALL THINGS:
    Outlets: They reused many of my old outlets. A 25K kitchen and they didn?t get a new $2 outlet that didn?t have paint all over it?  Nails: I had to continually pick up nails in my driveway and yard. There was no effort on their part. I don?t think they own a magnet. Still finding nails. New framing over the foam: New roof framing has been nailed over the exterior foam, not sure if this is correct but was assured this is OK. 
    UNFINISHED WORK:
    Client was left to finish the project. Here?s a list of the items that had to be done after reaching 25k:
    Remove NEW North drywall and add reinforcement for 6 shelves and hood.
    Re-Sheetrock N wall, tape, sand, mud, etc
    Sand remaining unsanded walls on N, W, and E walls
    Mud and sand to finish

    Prime walls, Paint All

    Install NW cabinet and SE (replaced) cabinet (RenMD offered to do the SE cabinet)
    Relocate RenMD installed kitchen drain (too high), repair drywall access location
    Relocate RenMD installed gas line to accommodate stove being flush with wall (RenMD installed 1st time in wrong location, moved it over, still incorrect. Client moves third time)

    Renovation MD
    The door required an arch filled in and turned into a wall, which was a bit complex. Renovation MD was fantastic- they asked all the questions I didn't know to ask, were prompt and courteous, and the work met my high quality standards. I would recommend them to anyone.

    T & R Construction
    Everything went well except the price sometimes changed from the original estimate, probably due to me adding things, but some items were not itemized on the original quote and price was a little too high.

    otherwise he was a very good contractor. There was a lot of work to be done, and it took about 2 months. Would probably use him again.
