Customer Testimonials

Dear Mark,

After my less-than-pleasant experiences with the original contractor who built my addition and the design center who remodeled my bathrooms, I was apprehensive about contacting you to mention the loose tile I had discovered in front of my shower. To my surprise, you responded promptly and courteously to my call. You came and agreed with me that something needed to be done.

Without any hassle, you sent Bill to repair my tile floor. He completed the work to my complete satisfaction. I will gladly recommend your company to anyone who asks about the workmanship and integrity of Basswood Construction Group. Thank you not only for fixing my bathroom, but more importantly, for restoring my faith in humanity. You guys are great!

Dear Mark:

If I had a dollar for every time I received a compliment of the beauty of our home, I think I could retire. I know our project was very difficult. Thank you so much for hanging in there with us through all the good and bad times. You are an amazing contractor in many ways. I have yet to meet very many people as sincere as you, let alone any other contractors. As you know, sincerity is not usually a contractor’s strong suit. When people ask how it was to work with our contractor, my honest reply is “yes, if I had to do it all over again, I would and I would select Basswood Construction again.” I am very quick to point out that to my knowledge, aside from our job, I have never heard of a job that is ever “finished”. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the time and effort you put into our project. I love everything about our newly remodeled home. Again, the offer still stands to allow new clients of yours to view Basswood’s handywork. I wish you continued success in your business. Bravo on a job well done! Keep up the good work.

Dear Mark:

I wanted to send you this note to thank you once again for helping us out after last Saturday’s rainstorm. You really helped to control my wife’s nerves and I appreciate that you took your own time to come to our aid. We were already confident in our decision to have you be our builder, and you have further solidified that confidence. Let’s keep praying for good weather this fall to get that driveway done before winter! Thanks again for your help.
