I have had the privilege to work with Wood Crest Builders on various rehab and new construction projects over the past 4 years. I am writing to let anyone considering a remodel or new construction project know that you have contacted the right company. Not only will you find them professional, trustworthy and honest, but you will be pleased by their respect, for you and your property, they communicate at a level you can understand, and the ability to get the job done. They take the time to walk through a project with you to make sure it is done correctly, work with city officials so you don't need to if there are questions during inspections and clean up the job site at the end of each day. Whether your home is being built or being remodeled, Wood Crest Builders is the company you want working for you. Erik and his entire crew have always done a great job!

Wood Crest Builders were recommended to us by trusted friends that hired WCB to remodel their kitchen. Our friends researched 18 different contractors (thoroughly) before selecting WCB. We looked at their completed project and listened to how satisfied our friends were, and contacted the Andersons to discuss our own remodel project.

We worked directly with Erik and from the start, we really liked him. He genuinely listened to our needs and offered options and ideas. We never felt pushed in any direction. Simply put, he is a kind gentleman and someone you quickly begin to trust. We met his wife and co-owner Sarah later in the project and she is of the same high caliber.

In the fall of 2015, we hired WCB to completely gut and remodel our first level. This included a complete rearrangement of our kitchen. We also had two bathrooms on our second level completely gutted and remodeled. The existing kitchen floor plan and placement of cabinets presented a unique challenge. Erik worked with a cabinet designer to create a floor plan that no one else had considered! It was really out-of-the-box thinking that solved many problems and afforded us much more cabinet storage and workspace! We were thrilled at the 3D presentation allowing us to visualize how the room would look. Before construction began Erik provided us with a formal timeline on what would be happening when, and what choices we had to make prior to the different construction phases.

We are very pleased with the outcome and will likely be hiring WCB to replace the remaining windows on the 2nd floor. We spent more than planned but that was because we chose to expand the scope of the original plan and selected a couple higher end choices (countertops, fixtures, flooring). We lived in our home during the many weeks of the remodel. Every day at 7 a.m. sharp, the WCB employees arrived and briefed us on what would be happening that day. They were truly a delight to have around. They were always friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us and our evolving temporary living needs while the project progressed.

When you write a significant check to someone you didn't previously know, and walk away as close friends (which we did), it says much about the character of the company, its owners and its employees. We recommend Wood Crest Builders without reservation.

I've had the pleasure of Wood Crest Builders working on two projects so far at my home. The first project involved entirely remodeling my main bathroom. Since it was my only bathroom with a shower, it was important that the project moved along as efficiently as possible. Erik's crew was able to work quickly, within budget and give me a beautifully updated bathroom. Last year, I underwent a major remodel that involved removing a wall, moving my kitchen area and updating floors and lighting all around. With a major project like this, I prepared myself for a lengthy process and frustrations along the way. I can honestly say that although we missed having a functioning kitchen for about 7 weeks, the process went smoothly and moved along with very few glitches. When I walk into my kitchen and living room today, I feel like I'm walking into a brand new house. Everything came together beautifully and we couldn't be more pleased with the space. Erik and his team became like part of our family while the work was underway and kept me updated during all the steps in the process. I look forward to working with them again in the future!

Over the past several months we worked with Erik Anderson and his team from Wood Crest Builders as our General Contractors on remodeling our Lake Home, built in the early 1960s. After the first walk through, we decided the house needed to be totally rebuilt. However, we chose to remodel inside and out, keeping the original foot-plan to please the county inspector’s strict guidelines. So right from the start, Erik & his team were faced with multiple challenges on the property. With our budgets in mind, they offered multiple options to save costs and keep within our means as the project moved forward through each stage of the construction process. Throughout the project they suggested better, cost effective solutions in each room that in the end, still exceeded the overall look and feel we were going after. They were very detail oriented and kept a number of projects running at the same time to save on contractor costs rather than waiting for each phase to be complete. It was so nice to work with this contractor, they seemed to really care about the project rather than most contractors I have dealt with in the past who just want to get the job done and don’t care how it turns out. Everyday they showed enthusiasm towards each project and finished beyond our expectations. Their superior craftsmanship and expertise definitely shined through on this project. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone and look forward to hopefully working with them again in the future!

Ryan and Joe did a fabulous job on my laundry room remodel. I couldn't be more pleased. It is bright and cheerful, the floor turned out perfect and the walls and trim look brand new. I think Ryan did a great job on the ceiling. Working around all the tubes, cables, vents, and a 100 other things, it looks remarkably well. Thank you for being so flexible with my dryer, but Ryan knew just what to do to fix it and it turned out great. I have a ton of added space.

I'm writing this letter for people who are looking for a good contractor to do work on their home. It's unsolicited from the company and is my idea because of the great work that they do.

In June 2013 I put out bids for a contractor to do work on my house. Erik Anderson of Wood Crest Builders was chosen to do the work. The company installed all new windows which included bedrooms, front room, kitchen, basement and others. They did an excellent job on them and cleaned for any lead paint that may have been on the old woodwork. Then they wrapped all the woodwork on the outside of the house and the garage so that I will no longer need to pain any of it. Lastly the house was sand blasted in preparation for a re-stucco job, which included knocking out all of the old that had cracks or holes and plastering in preparation of the stucco which was applied in another two coats. I had a problem with a leaky roof on my breezeway and the new roof created a problem for putting up a railing. These guys overcame the problems and have installed a beautiful vinyl railing which should not need any care in the future.

That is the work that was done for me and my house looks like new although it was built in 1948. That is not all. The work took three different crews and every one of the men working on the house were very sociable and nice and pleasant to have around. they started work at 7 am and usually left around 4 pm. When they came they placed covers over everything that might be harmed by the work and before they left they cleaned up everything that was laying around and put everything away for the night.

I cannot praise this company enough as even my neighbors have remarked to me about the crews and the work they were doing and since I'm a widow I was happy my neighbors were looking out for me.

Sincerely,

Marge Otten
