Months ago, Steve installed new doors throughout my home. I purchased the high quality doors new from a local supplier. I've had great luck with such composite doors in the past two homes I built and expected similar performance on these. However, Wisconsin's humid summer has done its best to thwart my plans. While the composite door structure has proven stable in my past experience, four of the d...

This is what was sent to the BBB on 8/3/15: "By providing the new wall prep answers in writing with corresponding receipts would have put my mind at ease. Now the grout cracks, pin holes, shrinking of unsanded grout around edges for the size of the tiles and joints it should not be happening so soon after completion - literally within 8 weeks.   Nor should I have heard 2 pops under my cabinet.  He...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Complete remodel on full bath approximately 40 square feet.  According to 6 tile experts, the grout job was very poor and needs to be re-grouted to sanded grout because the size of the grout joints.  Wrong grout and not mixed properly.  If Steve Uselmann ABC stood by his work he would reimburse me the money it will take to redo what he did not know how to do or to provide a solution.  Why would he say to me I was the one that picked floor tile for the wall after he put up the tile I did not pick – after he was paid in full?  Because he knew that the unsanded grout was going to become an issue.  This was after the job was complete and he had to come back because the door was warped.   You would think if he were a reputable contractor, as I did, he would have nothing to hide and provide the requested information without question.  He would and should have called a grout expert at his expense and made sure it was corrected.  What bothers me the most with this general contractor is all the challenges stated above and below requiring the need for me to write this review.  Yes, 6 suppliers because I wanted one of them to tell me not to worry.  They would not - they would not say anything except "unsanded grout" and shook their heads.

When the job was done on time and budget she almost cried it was so beautiful. A week later this case began. I consider this reply the end of the case. The customer was there and in the way every day causing delays. She would ask about the procedure and products and then google every word I said. I went the extra mile over and above any job in my 30 years. I didnt charge for any of her mistakes in...

Steve was able to assist me in ordering custom cabinets,  He helped to defer the cost of the cabinets by helping me order just what I needed.  Because his skill set is so...

Due to schedule conflicts, it was challenging to connect initially. However, once Steve Uselmann agreed to do the work ... look out: couldn't stop him :-) He delivered high quality craftsmanship, came when he said he would, cleaned up reasonably, performed numerous miscellaneous services above & beyond the call of duty (at no additional charge), offered constructive & cost-effective suggestions wh...
