  • It was a nightmare. Everything looked to be going well, until they left. They charged us for all kinds of things that they never did. When I refused to pay they settled with me and forced me to sign a disclosure agreement. Biggest mistake that I made, because I had no idea how many corners they cut along the way. Now I'm having to hire other contractors to come finish the work that Pennings and Sons was under contract to provide. We gave Pennings and Sons over 300,000 dollars, our life savings to turn our home into a dream home and all they did is turn it into a home of nightmares. Beware, find someone else. I've heard sever stories of them doing this to a lot of they're customers but they only get the review info to the few happy ones. Stay away.

  • All of our projects with Tom Scheffers have gone incredibly well. He is excellent at communicating, responsive, detailed and reliable. He and his crew reliably arrived when they said they would, worked hard with attention to detail, and were pleasant. Tom was very good at setting a calendar, having subs arrive in a timely fashion, minimizing waste of time and resources, and keeping us up-to-date during all projects. We have been extremely pleased with the results of this hard work and have received many compliments on our new kitchen, flooring and exterior. I heartily recommend Scheffers Construction for any project, they do excellent work.

  • 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!

  • Jeff is a nice guy. He has great taste and he chooses nice things to complement really unique layouts and floor plans. I was told he used to build homes in the 80s and then again recently he built the one my clients just bought. It's a nice house. Some very nice things to it. There were some rough edges but nothing he didn't resolve.

  • They were great. I did not use the service, but he was just such a nice guy. We ended up not building in the area, but he was more than appropriate and way within reason. He was really good, and I had talked to others. Probably, if we were going to build in the area we are in, we would have used him, but we ended up moving to a different area. He called us back probably in two days and had something for us. We talked to the owner, and he treated us excellently.

  • He was on top of EVERY detail. He was extremely reliable and trust-worthy. He allowed family members to be involved in other projects on the same property and was helpful to my father in trouble-shooting as we worked to completely gut and renovate a 1950's cottage. Every crew member that he hired was a class act. Good quality human-beings that worked hard and were extremely reliable. Mark was the lowest of three bids we got. He had been highly recommended, so we took a leap of faith and couldn't be more pleased.

  • They were involved directly in the design and physical construction of the entire house. We cannot say enough about the how well everything can together. We were allow do some of the work painting and staining. We laid our hardwood floor to safe money.
    We had Marv come in and remodel out master bath in 2011. The tile work was done by Marv's brother who did a excellent job. Have has always used subcontractors he trust to do a good job.
    Our experience is for the cost and workmanship this is the contractor you need. We have referred Marv to numerous friends and family and all have had great experiences.

  • I would highly recommend Jeff Larrabee Construction. He is a Licensed General Contractor. He was very professional. He listened
    closely to my requests, and the end products were professionally completed. Because I was packing, selling, and moving our home, he also helped with miscellaneous tasks that I could not do myself. He is very reliable.
    - Debbie C.
  • Since it was spring the yard got tore up a little from the Bobcat, this was probably not the fault of the contractor. The slab was done quite nicely, the only thing I wish was better was a little more attention given to the small things, i.e. the broom finish was a little rough, and the box they built behind my steps for my overhang could have been installed a little more cleanly. Overall though I am quite pleased with the service provided.
