Builder reccomendations?

Postby fisticuffs » Thu Sep 13, 2012 8:43 am

Need someone to tear up a floor, build a couple support walls for a shower, and drywall the room. Had a guy flake out on me this week and I don't like the price of our back up plan. Anyone have a good recommendation?

I don't have first-hand knowledge but JG Development has been all over the near west side.

I'd prefer someone off duty or independent if possible.

Thanks sent them a request to come out for a quote. I at least need to know our backup is giving us a competitive price.

I recommend W E Davies quite a bit. I don't know them personally but a couple of my customers have used them and been happy.

We've used the Davies brothers for two big projects and one smaller in the 25 years we've been in our house - finishing the basement, building out our 3 season porch (tearing out walls, pouring a new floor, then finishing the new space into a year round space), and installing new picture window, front door and a smaller window. We've been more than satisfied with the work, they're great guys to work with, genuinely nice people, lots of ideas. We've recommended them to several friends, who've used them. They're not the cheapest outfit in town. Yours might be too small a project for them, at this point, if you know what I mean. They use very good subs too (Hill Electric, etc.). Check out their website. They also have a showroom of some kind (I've never been there) in Monona.

We used a guy named Steve Jackson from McFarland to remodel our kitchen. We were very satisfied. He's a friend of a friend, and he did the friend's and the friend's son's and a co-worker's kitchens and all were satisfied. We were very happy with the price and the quality of the work. Carpentry is Steve's thing, but we liked the work from the subs (drywall/painter guy and electric guy) very much too. I also had him install a storm door which required some "waterproofing" on the surrounding wood. He did a very good job, no leaks since. Steve Jackson Carpentry: 608-320-1849.

I was pleased with Loren Imhoff's Fix'M. A bit expensive but did a good job.

I thought that too before I posted the link but on the website they list handyman and "honey do list" services, so it sounds like smaller jobs are welcome. Glad to hear you had a good experience with them.

Mind if I ask what "expensive" is? Do they do an hourly rate?
