Testimonials

“New roof for our house. We needed to increase the sturdiness of our roof, as well as re-shingle it. Materials recommended by Mr. Krause and Mr. Sauder have, so far, proven to be superior in quality. Everything was done,— estimate and contract through completion —- on time and on budget during difficult winter weather conditions. Crew was meticulous in installation and professional in behavior . Clean up was carefully done at the end of each day and upon finishing the job. There is something “crisp and clean” about our roof that is different from those around us, whether new or old. Santa will have a much improved landing strip come this December! Thanks JK Construction!”

“I am pleased to express my total satisfaction for the work performed by John Krause Construction. They were involved in the original construction of our home in 1996 and when we decided to add an extension to house an elevator we utilized their services. Their workmanship has been superb and I highly recommended their services for new construction & repair.”

My wife and I hired John Krause to install vinyl siding on our house, including our screen porch. We are very pleased with the work that John Krause did. He finished the work quickly, on time and on budget. He gave us a good price. We decided to hire him because he was strongly recommended by other people. I personally called several of his former customers and was very impressed with what they had to say about him. One of the big problems in any project like this is that it is hard to do enough work before the job starts to really specify everything that needs to be done and solve every problem that might come up. Our project was more than just vinyl siding. It was home improvement on the outside of the house and yard. As a result, many things came up during the process that needed to be addressed. In every case John was able to come up with really good solutions, at a reasonable price, and work them smoothly into the work process. John really knows his job and he is very customer focused. His people are good at their jobs and they work hard.

The first major issue that we had was whether to install the vinyl siding over the existing clapboard or to remove the clapboard. The other contractor we were considering wanted to remove the clapboard and John didn’t see any reason to do that. The existing clapboard stayed and that has made a big difference in our electric bills. The second issue was what type of gutters to install. This was a major issue with me because even though we had a gutter guard it didn’t work very well and I frequently had to go out in heavy rain to unclog the downspouts to prevent the basement from flooding. I was willing to buy the most expensive system on the market, costing thousands more than what John thought would do the job.

Fortunately, John was able to convince me. We saved a lot of money and haven’t had any problems. I am very happy about this. I have even reached the point where every time it rains I don’t look out to check the gutters. Third, our roof was covered with moss and looked terrible. John had his people pressure spray the moss off and install some type metal ribbon at the top of the roof to prevent it from growing back. Fourth, our driveway under the carport was bare, unsealed concrete that was very hard to keep clean. John installed a very attractive sealant that has made it much easier to keep this area clean, which has helped keep our car cleaner and our house cleaner. Fifth, we had a terrible looking old wood shed in the back yard. We bought a new vinyl shed from Costco. John installed a large gravel foundation for the shed and assembled it for us. It works just great and all the clutter that used to be on our back porch is now in the shed. Time and again whenever problems came up John always had a good solution at a good price. As soon as we can afford to we plan to hire John to remodel our bathrooms and our kitchen.

“I would like to comment on the work that John Krause and his team of carpenters and assistants performed in the building of my sunroom. To start, I had designed my room to meet my goals. John was more than willing to follow my design and offered several good recommendations that made my design even better and more workable.

The sunroom was a 16’ x 21’ replacement for a unused large deck, with a tile floor, drywall walls, big widows, cedar siding, an interesting roof since it had to match up with an existing house with several different roof lines and walls plus as small replacement deck. I am happy to say that John built the sunroom I envisioned, came in on budget and ahead of schedule.

His on-site crew cleaned up every day before leaving, worked hard, and was pleasant to be around. Would I use John again? YES, and I would do so without a worry.”

Philip Jones

“It was a pleasure to work with John Krause and his teams of workmen. Over a three week period, we had two decks built, a laundry room completely renovated, and random repairs and painting done in several areas of our house. Everyone was professional, polite, and neat. Each night when the crews left, the job site was completely picked up. They also accommodated our curious dog and made sure he didn’t escape! It was a pleasure to have the work begun and completed on schedule. I will certainly call on Mr. Krause again for the next house “project.””

Olive Moochler

“John Krause was recommended to me by a good friend who had been very pleased with his work. I wanted to add a sunroom to the back of my home and I had several contractors give me their prices. John listened to what I wanted and his bid was the most affordable.

His workers were very professional, and they all did an amazing job. They completed the job at budget and sooner than expected.

I am delighted with my new room, and I have enthusiastically recommended John to many of my friends, who also were extremely happy with his work.”

Eileen Cimbolic

“I highly recommend John Krause, he did a wonderful job on completing several home improvements over the past several years.

We love our new front porch! new siding and replacement windows, new low maintenance decking and lower level bath!”

Bonnie & Mike McGurn

“John Krause Construction performed a demolition and complete rebuild of our custom home in 2012. John and his crew are meticulous craftsman who take extra care to ensure tasks are done correctly.

From the framing to the siding through the finish carpentry, John’s attention to detail is reflected in the finished product. Throughout the build, we had every confidence they were building our house as if it was theirs.

We are very pleased with the final result and thoroughly enjoyed working with John and his crew. We highly recommend John Krause Construction for any project you may be considering.”

Scott Sanner

“John has done several jobs for me on my Deck Homes house over the last 2-3 years, from large to small, both interior and exterior.

I am always very pleased with the level and quality of John’s work and that of his workers, and if there are any small problems John has always come right out to fix them.

John is courteous and punctual, does a good job of cleaning up, and completes the job on time. He also has always offered me very reasonable pricing.”

“John has been providing construction and repair services for six rental properties plus my personal residence. He has been timely, reasonably priced, and his work has been excellent. I recommend him without reservation.”

Teddie Watts

“We had water intrusion from our deck and John was extremely helpful in fixing the problem on time and on budget. We were so impressed we had him quote a new roof for our house, and after several bids he remained competitive with other contractors, and did an excellent job. His work crew is very friendly and professional.”
