From the onset of our project I have recommended Otterbeck to anyone who asked about the contractor doing the work. Their professionalism was on display for everyone to see from the time the demolition took place to the finish trim on the building. My comments were only icing on the cake after everyone witnessed how well the job was progressing.
Schedule - Although there were issues with supplies and weather Otterbeck did a extraordinary job bringing the job in on time.
Recognized Excellence - I must commend the entire Otterbeck team, the subs, office staff, carpenters and leadership. They showed the highest concern for not only me but the neighborhood as well. Everyone who walked passed the job as it progressed from the initial site work to the finished project admired the highly professional approach to the construction of my addition.
Areas For Improvement - The only area I feel that Otterbeck could improve is better control of the weather ;-)
Areas Of Satisfaction - We are highly satisfied with their approach to minimizing the disturbance and inconvenience to the neighbors and neighborhood.
Additional Comments - I can't speak highly enough about Otterbeck Builders. Nick kept us informed of every detail and did a outstanding job addressing potential cost overruns. I acquired several estimates for our project and Outterbeck was not the cheapest nor most expensive. After our interview at their office and was shown their organized and systematic approach to the completion of our project I looked no further. If I were to assign a grade to their effort and product I would give them an A+.
We very highly recommend Otterbeck Builders for any home improvement project. We have never done a renovation before, but witnessed the nightmarish experiences of friends and family in the past. We were nervous, but Dett put all of our concerns to rest from the start. His team built a huge finished area in our basement and remodeled our master bathroom. We couldn’t be happier with the quality of the craftsmanship and materials. They were at our house, on time, every day for 3 months without exception, until the jobs were done. Everyone was professional, knowledgeable, organized, kind, and respectful of our family and property. The process was flawlessly managed from the planning through completion. We will definitely use them again!

Quality Of Workmanship - Board and Batten was exactly what we envisioned. We are very happy with the tiled shower.
Problem Resolution - Like every project, there are last minute unforeseen issues. There was always two-way, very open, communication. The issues seemed to be resolved painlessly.
Professional & Organized - Otterbeck's weekly employee meetings gave them a chance to discuss projects and timeliness. The project manager visited the site at least once weekly to discuss any issues. The on-site installer(s) were very professional and organized.
Schedule - The project timeline is always welcome. It gave us an idea what were the next steps. Though extra materials needed to be ordered, and the project "took a breather," we stayed in contact via email with any updates.
Value - Expect to pay a little more for a top-notch company.
Sales Knowledge - During initial meetings, we discussed our visions of our wants and wishes. We were shown photos and products of possible solutions.

Recognized Excellence - Rudy, the installer, was recommended to us by another Otterbeck customer. We were impressed with his wood working, as well as other technical skills.
Areas For Improvement - Painted doors and moldings in garage with garage door open on a chilly, wet, windy day. Unfortunately, needed to be touched up or redone. May be have been better to discuss an alternate painting area?
Areas Of Satisfaction - Otterbeck employees, from top to bottom, were great to work with. We knew that with our first project. And, the main reason they were chosen for our 2nd project.
We got excellent service and provide quality work!

I have already recommended Otterbeck Builders to a number of my friends, family and co-workers and will continue to do so.
Types of work - Otterbeck Builders installed a great-room and a two car garage. We are already working with them to handle another project for us.
Clean - At the end of the day, other than the newly completed work, you could not tell that contractors had been here at all. Everything was picked up, swept up and put away.
Safe - The job site was completely safe at all times and anything that needed to be fenced or roped off, was.
Respectful - Otterbeck Builders treated our property better than we do. They would not even walk through the door to the existing house without putting on "booties" over their shoes.
Communication - We received almost daily communications with Otterbeck via emails, phone calls and on-site visits to keep us up-to-date on schedules or changes.
Quality Of Materials - All of the materials used were top quality. If something came in that wasn't, it was sent back and a replacement was brought in.
Quality Of Workmanship - We are more than satisfied with the quality of their workmanship. The skills, knowledge and craftsmanship exhibited by the staff throughout the project created a finished product they should be proud of. We have received many compliments on our addition.
Problem Resolution - Any issues that arose were handled seamlessly. One issue arose with a sub-contractor that would have caused a delay - Otterbeck sent their top team to the site and handled it on the spot. They made sure the job was done above and beyond our satisfaction.
Professional & Organized - This was the most professional and organized vendor I have ever dealt with. They made the entire project work smoothly or at least made it appear as though it did. To me that is the sign of a great contractor.
Schedule - The project was completed as promised. They may have even been a few days ahead of schedule.
Value - The saying "You get what you pay for" was very true in this case. We definitely received our monies worth.
Sales Knowledge - We worked with Nick from start to finish with our project. He answered any and all questions for us and guided us through the process. He was able to recommend options and solutions to any concerns we may have had.
Design - They made sure the project came in as designed. We love it.
Recognized Excellence - I don't think there is anyone we wouldn't recognize. Rudy and Jared work so well together and are excellent at their jobs. They are like a well-oiled machine. I don't think there is anything Rudy is unable to do. Rudy is an excellent craftsman. Nick is very good at communication with us and organizing the project so it runs smoothly. Joe kept us informed and is willing to jump in at a moment's notice to get a job done. All of their staff is friendly and courteous.
Areas For Improvement - There were none.
Areas Of Satisfaction - I truly believe Otterbeck Builders exceeded our expectations in every area. They and their staff are so professional and courteous. They all seem to have a great work ethic and excellent skills in the work they do. They also seem to truly love what they do. I think that shows in the finished product.
Additional Comments - We are very pleased with the finished project. The quality of the work exceeded our expectations. We are looking forward to our next project with Otterbeck Builders and will recommend them to everyone.
I highly recommend them. They did a very professional job, they did it on time, and they did excellent quality workmanship.
Recognized Excellence - Rudy was in charge of the project and he did an excellent job. He did most of the work and he was meticulous and extremely patient with me and my questions when I wasn't sure what was going on. He did a great job.
Areas For Improvement - I don't know if they could have improved on anything. They di exactly what I wanted and when I called them to come back out there was no hassle and they would take care of everything. I could not have asked for better.
Areas Of Satisfaction - They were very professional and organized. They had a plan, they finished and now it's done. I am already thinking about calling them for something else.
Respectful - This is one of the many ways in which Otterbeck truly stands out.
Quality Of Workmanship - Extremely!

Al and Rudy were both very respectful of our home in their work and in their oversight of subcontractors. Nick did an amazing job communicating with us and coordinating the project.
Areas Of Satisfaction - Their quality of work, respect for homeowners and their property. Continually asking for and adapting to customer feedback.
Additional Comments - We had a very positive experience working with very skilled people who conducted the project as if it was being done on their own home. They seemed genuinely invested and truly cared about providing a quality work product.
Areas Of Satisfaction - Their personnel were instrumental in guiding me to a pleasing outcome. Some of the areas I had no prior experience to make key decisions and without that guidance I’m not sure I’d have the great outcome I did.
Additional Comments - I’ve never had a company of such excellence work on my home. They were clean, communicative, trustworthy, professional & a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a professional outcome for their project.
Clean - Every day the guys tidied up the materials.
Communication - In the beginning and throughout the project we felt the communication was fantastic. At the end we felt that we were kind of left in the dark. We were waiting for a part to come in but didn't hear anything on the progress. Overall we were pleased!
Recognized Excellence - Corey and Nick were great! Jim and Mike were also excellent!
Areas Of Satisfaction - We love our deck!!
Additional Comments - Thank you!!
Schedule - The project got delayed because the supplier ordered the wrong faucet, which wasn't Otterbeck's fault. It took extra time to get the correct faucet and a new sink basin with the correct number of holes.
Value - The bathroom cost more than I expected, but the quality of Otterbeck's work and their attention to detail makes me feel like it was money well spent. I could have spent less with someone else, but I'm not sure I would be as happy with the job.
Recognized Excellence - Joe Garceau was the production manager on my project. He was very communicative about things that came up during the course of the project. He was so responsive that I felt like I could bring things to his attention and that he would take care of it. There are a lot of guys out there that would just shrug and not do anything if you let them know about a problem.
Areas For Improvement - They are great. I don't have any suggestions for improvement.
Areas Of Satisfaction - Attention to detail, responsiveness to issues brought to their attention, helping me think things through so that I could make a decision, quality of work.

Additional Comments - We have had two previous major construction projects. They were both filled with problems...especially communication. Working with Dett Otterbeck Builders has been a far superior experience..I would be happy to recommend Otterbeck Builders to anyone looking to do construction or renovation
Recognized Excellence - Vinnie, who was the primary employee on site for the entire project, did a thorough an efficient job daily.
