    Mathis Construction LLC
    We hired Vern to be our general contractor for our master suite addition. He built this on top of our existing 15'x18' foundation which previously had a flat roof. I haven't done any official measurements but it added roughly 300 square feet to our home - another bathroom, bedroom and closet. The results are amazing, we LOVE IT. Vern is a great guy - hard worker, easy to work with, he knows what good work is and does a fantastic job himself. His quote came in spot on at the end of the project despite multiple changes. He also replaced the siding on the front of our house, replaced a sliding patio door in our kitchen and 4 interior doors.
    Get quotes early because projects get booked up quickly. We got about 4 quotes for this project. This was about 8 months or more before we actually intended to start our project which we wanted to start early summer 2015. We did a range of companies, big companies to smaller like Vern. Everyone but Vern was much higher, some up to $20k more! Vern was the only one to actually bring in sub-contractors to give him bids as well so he could give us a more accurate bid. We liked that level of detail. I am also a major DIY type and Vern had no problem with me doing work in addition to his team - not all contractors are open to this.
    We designed this ourselves and had working drawings made by an architect and Vern took it from there. We put our trust in Vern and gave him the key to our house because we both work; he never let us down. Everything was always locked up when we got home. He took care of permits and inspections. I never had to deal with city inspectors and there were multiple inspections with framing, roofing, HVAC, plumbing and electrical work being done.
    Many trades made this happen and I would say in general all were really good. Vern's craftsmanship is top notch. He pays great attention to detail. We also had Excel bury our electrical service during this project (not included in above cost). I guess my biggest complaint is that we should have been told to put that request in early. It took over a month for Excel to come out and this held a lot of work up. As part of the electrical service burial we also had the electrician upgrade our panel from 100amp to 200amp service (that cost is included above). Vern's tile guy was incredible! He hand built a custom shower for us and easily saw our vision; it turned out just as I imagined it would.
    We did all the interior painting to save some money so that is not included in above cost. The carpet was installed by another contractor and is not included in the above cost, that was $2,600. We had the entire house painted as well by another company for $3k. We also had another company replace our garage door for $1,100. But wait, there's more! We bought all the bathroom valves, fixtures, shower heads, all tile, toilet, granite countertop, double vanity, linen closet and more. When I added it all up it was about $69k - about $53k of that to Vern - but remember we did more than just the addition.
    Vern's time was about 2 months but our portion was more due to moving stuff, painting and further contractor work after Vern was done. Vern did a great job at keeping things moving and there weren't many days where nothing happened. Sometimes
    that was just due to weather though. We would definitely hire Vern again, he was a pleasure to work with. Thank you Vern and all the other craftsman that made this project happen!!!

    SRCM LLC
    Poor quality work. Rude. Disappears without honoring the warranty. 
    SRCM was the contractor that built the new detached garage on a home I recently purchased. Within days of purchasing the home, there were problems with the garage door and drain tile system. The garage door would not shut completely on one side, and after a small rain there would be standing water on the floor. The seller of the house immediately provided me with a copy of SRCM's warranty.
    Andrei Yunchyk, the owner and operator of SRCM, is rude, evasive and dishonest. It took several phone calls for him to agree to inspect the property. After not showing once without notice, he arrived late, agreed that there was a problem, and told me he would "call someone he trusts". I never heard from Mr. Yunchyk again. His representative, Viktor, was twice scheduled to arrive, but just like Mr. Yunchyk, failed to do so without any notice. I have made many phone calls and sent several letters, but heard nothing back.
    I informed the Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and The Minnesota Commissioner of Labor and Industry of the situation. It has been several weeks, and SRCM has not responded to either agency. The garage door is going to cost at least $500 to fix and estimates for the drain tile come in at over $2,000. I plan on taking SRCM and Mr. Yunchyk to small claims court.
    Note: I listed the cost above as $0, as SRCM was hired by the seller of the home. I am unsure of the amount they paid.

    We were less than satisfied with the removal of the old structure.  The crew that was brought in to do this backed their tandem truck up onto our existing asphalt driveway and left ruts in the asphalt.  Then, the excavator took out more sidewalk than was initially agreed to and tore up the television cable buried in the backyard.  It turned out the guy running the backhoe read the drawing the wrong way (i.e went 32 feet deep instead of 24).  If I hadn't come home over lunch to check on this, they would have dug it in 90 degrees the wrong way.  We chalked it up to "things happen" and moved on.
    After a long delay, partially due to weather, the concrete guys showed up and discovered that the excavation crew had not dug out enough.  They then dug the remainder of the area and commented that it was not uncommon for the teardown crew to mess that up.  Additionally, the plans with the city had been filed with a 6' right of way and I discovered it could have been 5'.  Upon asking, I was told that this would be a lot of work to get changed.  I called the city myself and they said it would be no problem at all to change - no additional work needed. 
    The longest delay was between teardown and the slab actually being poured.  It seemed like we were just continually getting pushed back, even once things did dry up.  It felt like they were putting other jobs first and just squeezing us in when it was convenient.  I also happened to ask the cement crew about their plans to reconnect the sidewalk that was tore out by mistake and discovered they had no plan to do this.   A couple of discussions later, this was added back.  The biggest surprise was that nobody ever told me the day that they actually did come out to pour.  I came home from work and it was there.   Overall quality on the cement work appears average.  There are several spots that water will pool or drain towards a wall, rather than drain towards the overhead doors.  Further, the new garage was dug in slightly lower than the previous structure.  We are now having issues with water seeping in through the two rows of block on top of the slab that are below grade because there was no waterproofing applied.  I will be digging this up and applying a water-proofing product to try to stop this issue.
    Next, the cement forms for the sidewalk repair and the 36x36 pad  for the service door were not removed and the pad was never placed in front of the service door.  I removed those forms and had to move the pad myself.  The pad was poured in the middle of my back yard and as such killed a large square of the lawn.  Once the slab was finally done, the actual construction of the building went quickly by comparison. 
    The construction crew did a decent job.  The only things I questioned were that it rained on the tar paper prior to shingling and caused several bubbles all over the tar paper.  This was shingled over.  Research on the web indicated this could cause issues in the future, but time will tell.  There was one siding board that I had to call and ask to have replaced where it was clearly a hammer mark that had dented the siding. The other quality issue I had was with the caulking. It almost seemed like two different people did it.  Some places looked perfect but others looked amateur - ranging from large globs to places just missed.  Two windows were caulked on top but the doors and other window were not.  I fixed this myself because I didn't notice it until I was ready to paint. 
    Lastly, the garage door installers did a very amateur job of running the wires from the doors to the opener and opener to the buttons.  They currently run up the wall then are just laying on top of the studs and take the most direct route to where they are going - i.e. kitty/corner across the rafter openings to get to the opener then to the door instead of neatly stapled to the sides of the rafters.  Now to store anything up there I need to be careful so as to not set things on the wires, pinch them, etc.  Yes, the doors function this way but it takes away the usefulness of the space above it.
    The last communication issue was with the soffit material.  We had specified metal soffit.  I happened to come home over lunch again one day and talked a little with the crew as I saw they were starting to work on the soffits.  I asked what they were nailing up, etc. to prep for metal and he said that he was putting up wood soffit/facia.  I told him that we had specified metal.  He called the office, confirmed, and had to wait for new material to show up.  Lastly, there was a fairly long delay between the
    The one bright spot in the process was their electrician - I believe it was Ace Electric.  They were very professional and asked me all sorts of questions to ensure they layed things out the way I was looking for.

    THE SHED SHOP
    I coordinated this work to go along with a landscaping project in my back yard. I ordered the shed in late July, and then scheduled the install for late September. It took me a while to firm up the plan, and Jessica at the Shed Shop was very accommodating. They were also willing to put up a canoe rack on their shed for only $50. Quality of the shed appears good. It's very solid. This wasn't the best construction job I've ever seen (some nails were not fully pounded in, the handle fell off the door and had to be reattached) but overall I'm happy with it. I think it's better than what I would have gotten from other sources (i.e. from a big box store). I wish I hadn't let them drive their trucks into my back yard, because I had to pay my landscaping company to repair the resulting ruts.

    I contacted Western Construction to get a quote for adding a garage. After having a rep come out to provide my husband and I and quote we NEVER heard back even though the rep said he would contact us in a few days. He stated he needed to contact our city to get a few specifics before he could be more exact. Again, we never heard back and I honestly do not to chase a company to pay them for work.

    THEY WERE JUST WONDERFUL. THEY REALLY WORKED WITH MY IDEAS. THEY ARE A HANDS ON COMPANY. THEY STATE EVERYTHING IN THE CONTRACT AND IF IT IS IN THERE YOU CAN BE SURE IT WILL BE COMPLETED AND THEY WON'T DO SOMETHING IF IT IS NOT IN THE CONTRACT. THE CARPENTER THEY USE WAS JUST GREAT AND VERY PATIENT. I WAS ALSO ABLE TO HIRE OTHER CONTRACTORS TO WORK WITH THEM AND HAD NO PROBLEMS DOING SO. THE WHOLE PROCESS WAS AMAZING. THEY HAVE BEEN WITH US SINCE NOVEMBER.
