Testimonials From Our Clients

“We had an extensive remodel of our kitchen, baths, and laundry room this summer, and our experience was wonderful. The design process was thorough and collaborative. The construction was done according to schedule. The quality of the work was very good. Communication with the contractor was great- we met weekly and he was accessible any time we had questions. The costs were in line with the estimate that was provided before starting the project. Highly recommend!”

— Donna Dimski


“The folks at Powell Construction have done 2 remodels for us, one a major kitchen/family room and recently a garage interior. I can’t say enough good things about the professionalism, the follow-through, keeping to a timeline, outlining everything in writing, weekly check-ups, and the very great staff. We have two amazingly transformed spaces which are solidly built, beautiful and functional.”

— Susan Hatlevig


“I highly recommend Powell Construction to anyone who values professionalism, high-quality design services, expert trades-people, top-notch project management and high-quality implementation, all for the exact cost quoted up front.

I used Powell Construction for a high-end remodel of my master bath. They exhibited a high degree of professionalism throughout the entire project. Due to the detail they provide on their bid, their parts lists, specifications and drawings, identification of subcontractors, and contracts, I could be confident throughout that I was getting exactly what I asked for at the agreed-upon price. Nothing was left to chance or assumption, which met my needs wonderfully.

I appreciated very much that Powell Construction took an active role in the management of the project throughout. The various subcontractors flowed through the job exactly when needed, with no involvement on my part. I felt completely comfortable having each of the individuals in my home, and appreciate greatly the effort each made to keep the worksite clean and tidy at the end of the day.

Today I have a truly magnificent master bathroom that adds great value to my home, and great pleasure to my days. I couldn’t be more pleased with every aspect of the project!”

— Yvonne Morse


“We want to say a very large and well-deserved “Thank you” for all the great work you have done for us as we converted a 1950’s home into a 2010’s home.

From leading us through the various stages of design and decision-making, to the deconstruction of the old and the emergence of the new, you all were there for us. You helped us stay on track and explained the process every step of the way.

We really appreciate the documentation you did along the way. We knew the cost of every step, when it was scheduled, and when the schedule had to be altered — never any surprises.

We can’t really thank you enough for all you have done for us through all our projects!”

— Will & Cathy Summers


“Thank you so much for your hard work on and great support in our first remodel project. We are completely pleased with the outcome and believe this is due to your work with us from the dream stage to the final reality. We highly recommend your services to anyone looking to remodel their home! Blessings.”

— Steve & Claudia Lee


“Fantastic job tending to our every need. They did a huge remodel of our 1965 ranch house, and it turned out just the way we wanted. Great job with the design and coming up with creative construction solutions along the way. Recommend highly.”

— Brett Johnson


“This is our second addition and transaction with Powell Construction. We were so happy with the first addition 10 years ago that when we decided to add another addition, we contacted them again.

The project manager, the designer, and all the subs were extremely enjoyable to work with. With the designer’s assistance and guidance, we developed the perfect master bedroom, master bathroom, powder room, and walk-in closet. The entire project was on schedule and ran smoothly without any issues.

My husband was a builder and he was impressed with their knowledge, attitudes, ability to stay on or below budget, attention to detail, etc.

In summary, if anyone in the local area is looking for a competent, reliable, dependable builder, I would highly recommend they contact Powell’s. I can honestly say that it will be the best decision and you will not be disappointed.”

— Vickie & Mel Dones


“We had Powell Construction remodel our kitchen and make our kitchen/dining room/living room into a great room. They were great to work with. They listened to what we wanted and provided several different options. They did a great job of communicating and were right on schedule. All of their subs were great to work with and did outstanding work. To save a little money we did a few things ourselves. Powell worked with us on those things and made it easy for us to fit into their schedule. I would highly recommend Powell to anyone considering a remodel.”

— Carolyn Cooper


“I hope we have made it clear to you ALL how much we love our new addition/remodel, but more than that we enjoyed the Powell Construction “family” work ethic, thoughtfulness, honesty, approachability and competency. We consistently recommend you to our friends. It’s been great working with each and every one of you. You won’t believe how many family event memories we’ve already created in our new beautiful space.”

— Debbie & Pat Wray

“Thank you for providing such a smooth remodeling experience! Now when people tell us that remodeling projects always go over budget and beyond schedule, we can tell them that’s not the case if they call Powell!”

— Julie and David Hamby


“Powell Construction’s professionalism, commitment to quality workmanship, design skills, and attention to detail made our major remodel a smooth and well-organized process. From the very first phone call right through to the completion of our second-story addition and remodel, the competent, friendly people at Powell were a pleasure to work with. As a newcomer to remodeling and construction, I especially appreciated their patience with every question, no matter how small. I also appreciated their creative vision during the design process and their concern for the way the addition would blend in with the rest of the house, both externally and internally. Nearly a year later, we are still receiving compliments on the seamless integration of the second story with the original structure.”

— the Davis Bernart family


“They look at a situation and come up with ideas to help you decide what you want to do. We had a very good experience throughout the remodeling time with all of the Powell Construction employees and of course Tom and Heidi. We look forward to doing our next project with Powell Construction.”

“I think part of Powell’s success must surely lie in their willingness to take the extra time to really listen to their clients’ needs and ideas. I also was impressed with the way they kept us well informed throughout each step of the construction process. Our second-story addition and remodel progressed right on time and within budget. Through it all, the talented, good-natured people from Powell Construction were always thoughtful and considerate of our pets, our neighbors, and our family life.

“For years we listened to co-workers and friends tell us the stories of the remodel nightmare: contractors not living up to what they promised; workers not showing, ‘gone fishing’ attitude; quality less than desired; dollars going beyond reason with a shrug of the shoulders; foul language and on and on. Powell Construction totally destroyed the nightmare myth! The folks at Powell’s were exceedingly reliable. We settled on the contract, work started when scheduled and progressed according to the timeframe. They were considerate and thoughtful of our living conditions and we appreciated that they were also thoughtful of our animals. We are so delighted with the quality of work and the outcome of the remodel!! It has been delightful to work with everyone! What a find we made with Powell Construction!”

— Sheryl Glaeser
