    Quality Concrete & Masonry LLC
    Bryan and his crew are amazing. The most professional, tidy, responsive people I have had do work at my home. They came and prepared the garage floor area for the foundation repair company. They were flexible and very patient. The overall work is incredible. I cannot say more about Bryan and his guys. I would recommend and use his company again in a heart beat. Bryan thank you for all the great work you do.

    Molnar Construction
    Molnar Construction completed a very extensive project that
    we envisioned in December 2013. Coming from musical families, we had hoped to
    add a music room addition, off the back of our home and living room, in place
    of our then existing deck. However, we live in an area where the water table is
    relatively high, so we weren?t even sure such a project was possible. In
    addition to that, we wanted the new room well insulated, and also add a new
    deck with steps to a new concrete patio underneath. This meant building the
    room on stilts. We also wanted to re-purpose our huge picture window into the new
    room, not only to save cost but also to capture our beautiful view of woods and
    We figured the demolition alone for such a project could be
    challenging, because our home is in close proximity to a nature preserve.
    Because of that, care needed to be taken for ecological reasons, as well. After
    interviewing several contractors?we realized not everyone shared our vision.
    We met with Dan in March 2014 to discuss our goals and
    consider options. Our first meeting confirmed all the positive feedback we read
    about Molnar Construction on Angie?s list. From the get-go, Dan was personable,
    knowledgeable, considerate, and willing to work with our ideas. Although we had
    acquired three estimates, we felt Dan?s was the most detailed, and fair,
    considering the proposed undertaking. (Note: our final cost exceeded the
    original estimate, due primarily to the addition of a new roof, skylight,
    downspouts, gutter covers, and some extra electrical and carpentry work.)
    Dan and his crew were amazing!!! The care, positive
    attitudes, and professionalism they all brought to work each day were high
    caliber. Every evening, the job site was cleaned up to perfection! We were
    especially impressed when one of Dan?s employees used a metal detector to
    remove nails in the grass, after the roofing work was completed. With two dogs,
    that was an important detail for us. The concrete work on the patio surpassed
    our expectations ? LOVE all the curves! And re-grading/seeding the yard will be
    appreciated again next spring.
    Our project took approximately 8 weeks to complete and was
    the most enjoyable project we?ve ever undertaken. Molnar Construction has literally
    made our dreams come true! Easy to work with, their hard work and
    dedication-to-detail will impact our lives for many years to come.
    We?d like to personally thank Dan- you undoubtedly have a
    bright future, based on your personal integrity, up-beat attitude, and knowledge
    of the industry, as well as your many construction talents. We appreciate that
    you choose like-minded individuals to make up your team.
    A big shout out of thanks to Eric ? we like to think of you as co-pilot to Dan. You are one
    talented carpenter! Thank you for helping make our home so beautiful. Thank you
    also to Brandon, of Gilroy Painting. You and Nate did an amazing job in the
    music room, and completing the walls in the main house (the French doors are
    beautiful, beyond words). And the use of the eco-friendly filter when sanding
    was greatly appreciated. Thanks to Don who did the drywall, and also using
    eco-friendly products. Thanks to Tom, and his crew, who put in the carpet. Job
    well-done and appreciated each day as we enjoy the cushy feeling underfoot.
     Once again, thanks, Dan, to you and your crew. We look
    forward to working on future projects with you all again. BRAVO!

    Very professional!  
    Our existing concrete driveway, built in 1939/40 was broken in many places. The remains of a 3 foot tall retaining wall barely kept our entire driveway from sliding into our neighbor's driveway below it. The existing retaining wall was made of stones cemented together. The stone did not allow water to seep out so repeated freeze and thaw cycles had pushed the wall over. Not only was it leaning into the neighbor's driveway, parts of it had broken and fallen into his driveway.
    Davey's Dozing came over and tore out the broken concrete slabs and the old retaining wall. They replaced the retaining wall by fitting new fieldstone together without mortar.  The water can now seep out between the stone.  They put a drain in along the driveway and put in gravel.  While over here, we mentioned that our front concrete stoop was now leaning due to the concrete slab it was on.  Davy's called in another company they work with and they came over to raise the stoop along with some other problem areas we had.   It was all done within 2-3 days. 
    It has been several years since the work was done. Both the driveway and stone wall are still beautiful. 
    While they were here, I found out the secret to their stonework... They call one of their employees the "stone whisperer".  Apparently, he listens to the stone (he most likely just studies their shapes) and stacks them which is why they fit together so perfectly. I thought that was funny but a definite selling point.
    We had a very good experience working with this company.

    Van Gemert & Sons Excavating

    They removed ten yards of rocks for me. They did a really good job. They cleaned up everything after them. They did a really nice job for me. The price was fair because it contents materials they have used for the job. The team has some very nice young men. Overall, I am giving them an excellent grade.

    A & B Sewer & Septic Tank
    I was quoted by local plumbing company $1700.00 to dig the drain and replace it from the building to the septic tank. I called Charlie at Aand B. I explained to him the problem and he knew exactly what needed to be done because he has heard it before. He quoted me $900.00 and gave me a day he would be out to dig. His crew showed up bright and early, completed the job and smoothed the dirt perfectly. All I have to do is plant grass seed next spring. I had an employee asking questions to the crew while they worked. The crew told the employee exactly what they found wrong with the old pipe, what they were doing to fix it so it wouldn't likely happen again and how they would fill it all in. No extra hidden fees or special costs to use required equipment to do the job. I was given a bid and the bid was the price I paid. Definitely will be calling Charlie's crew back for more work in the future.

    Becker Excavating Inc
    Amazing! We have city water and sewer but since the problem was on our property the city would not do anything. Jim came out dug up the line and found that the person that installed the line did not seal it correctly so a tree roots and grown inside and caused the water back up. He replaced the pipe and sealed it. He then called the city to try to figure out the company that had installed it however they did not have record. He goes above and beyond and the bid was about the same as other companies. We recommended him to friends for their driveways as well and they had the same experience. We now recommend his company to all of our friends / family's.
