General Contracting reviews in Elk River

  • A
    Around Town Handyman
    It went wonderful. He is extremely professional. We continue to use him because his quality is extremely high and he makes sure to always clean up after himself each day. He is a very nice and great guy. He is very meticulous in detail work and I would say the quality of his work is the best thing about him. His prices are also reasonable and he does not charge you for extra time if he makes a mistake or if something needs changed.

    Otto & Sons Construction LLC
    We first found Otto and Sons on Angie's List while looking
    for a company with experience in complete bathroom remodeling. We had already done our homework and had a
    budget in mind but couldn't seem to find the right fit after several other
    We phoned Chris Otto and made an appointment, which he was
    on time and actually a little early!
    Always a good sign. We reviewed
    what we were thinking about and spent a lot of time describing the job and our
    expectations. He was attentive and made
    great suggestions on which way to go on some items and helped educate us on
    different products and options to consider along the way.
    He returned the estimate in a few days and was in the
    ballpark for what we knew our project was going to cost if we wanted it done
    right and with quality materials and workmanship. We signed the contract almost immediately
    since he had made such a good impression on both his visits. Chris gave us a selection sheet with several
    different suppliers for the various pieces and parts we were going to
    need. I think he is used to the
    homeowner taking the most time in this area . . . selecting countertops,
    colors, faucets and hardware but we already knew what we wanted and jumped all
    over the assignment. We had the majority
    of the items picked out and back to him within a few days. And trust me, he uses some of the best suppliers. You're not going to go down to the big-box
    store and pick out a $100 faucet. You're
    going to go to a tradesman supply house and pick out quality stuff that should
    last a lifetime. The same can be said
    about his sub-contractors. He uses a
    group that he has worked with for a long time and people he can trust. One thing that struck me was that he showed
    up every day, whether he needed to do some work or just to make sure the work
    area was vacuumed each night before everyone left. You could tell he was trained well and by someone
    who knew a little about customer service.
    We ended up with a complete bathroom re-model. The
    master bath was gutted to the studs, extensive carpentry work needed to build
    new shower, walls and sitting bench. A new floor was installed along with
    a complete water-proof shield. He installed in-floor heating in the bathroom
    and shower as well as a new toilet, sinks, granite counter tops, porcelain tile
    floor, shower walls and wainscoting. They installed a custom built
    vanity, mirrors and a beautiful oak medicine cabinet. We had new lighting
    and exhaust fans put in and all topped off with a fresh coat of paint on ceiling
    and walls.
    There were a few custom things that needed to be addresses,
    such as a larger drain due to size of new shower system. We also were
    very adamant about a custom shower that needed to have a frame less entry. In other words, we did not want a threshold
    so that a wheelchair or walker could be pushed right into the shower. In the end, he made our bathroom ADA
    compliant. Also, since we were going
    from a shower that pushed out several gallons of water a minute to over six
    gallons a minute, we needed a bigger hot water tank . . . no problem. On top of all this we also needed to upgrade
    our existing electrical service box to accommodate the new electrical
    requirements. Our panel is located in
    our rec room and can be seen . . . so he surprised us with a new hinged oak
    door for the box. It looks great!
    On top of all this, he also installed two new entry doors
    and we hit him with a first. We needed a
    doggie door installed since our dog has been trained to use one for years. He was a doggie door virgin, but handled it
    without a problem.
    Now, with any project this size, you're bound to have a few
    change orders and he was very good about getting these nailed down and signed
    with new estimates and totals.
    We have been extremely pleased with the quality of the work
    and our new bathroom. I'd recommend Otto
    and Sons to anyone considering a remodel or new build project. You not only gain a great contractor, you
    feel like you gained a new friend along the way.

    Patrick Balmer Construction LLC
    This has gone horribly wrong!
    He started on August 24th, obtained permits from the city and performed the framing and HVAC himself and sub contracted the electrical, plumbing and sheet rock.  The framing was fine and the sub contractor work was good and it all passed the rough in inspection through the city. Our contract required the job to be complete by 9/30/2011.

    Patrick's work started to deteriorate  the closer we got to September 30. My opinion is that he tried to slop it together to get it done hoping I would not say anything but I did not let that happen. I approached him about the painting on the walls where he did not use the right paint (we wanted satin, he used flat) and the walls were not prepped correctly so they felt like 60 grit sand paper.

    Patrick also attempted to install tile on the floor in the bathroom but did not use spacers between the tiles so some of the tiles were touching and others were so far apart, I can get my index finger tip between them. Many of them are not even level with each other.  We walked through the basement and he agreed to correct the walls and repaint them and also agreed that the tile was incorrectly installed and he would rip them out and reinstall them.  He offered me a refund of $300 to leave the tiles on the floor. I told him no way, I don't want a refund because I want it done correctly.  He tried to take them one at a time with a hammer and chisel and gave up saying he needed additional equipment.

    Ever since I brought these concerns to his attention, he has not come back to our home since 10/11/2011, will not return my phone calls and did not answer the door when I went to his home.  To make matters worse, I have contacted his sub contractors and they have conformed he has not paid them or not paid them in full. This is terrible because they can put a mechanic's lien on my home if they are not paid.

    I have not paid him the full amount but I have paid more than I should have because of the horrible work he has done and of course, the work he is not coming back to perform. He has not delivered any doors, trim or anything else per the contract.

    I have filed a complaint with the BBB, the MN Dept of Labor and Industry and the MN Attorney Generals office.

    Fusion Finishing LLC.
    Dave was a complete professional and helped us to brainstorm on ideas.  He then executed on those ideas and cleaned up afterward.  We look forward to using him again in the near future for our sheetrocking needs.

    Soda Construction
    He removed wallpaper, rebuilt walls, skim-coated and painted, and has done ceramic tilework in our guest bath. He also did work in our masterbath where he installed a new shower door and tiled the floor. He does very good quality work. What I like about him is that he's honest about whether he is available at the time for your work because he does happen to be quite busy.

    Premier Home Improvement LLC
    Very, very, well. I struggled with my insurance provider. All my neighbors had their roofs and siding replaced, yet I did not. After talking with the out-of-state adjuster, I was offered no coverage. When Premier took over, they handled the adjusters and insurance end and delivered results. My house siding and roof turned out to be an excellent replace and repair job!
