What people are saying:

“Rick,

I am delighted to share the conversation I just had with my friend Marlene Kalfus in Lanesboro. This is the first time in months that she has had such positive things to say about anyone she was trying to work with.

She couldn’t stop thanking me for recommending your company and my bragging about how Ed Depson made me feel comfortable with what work needed to be done to restore my bathroom and kitchen after the leaking pipes two years ago. She never thought she could share my enthusiasm in her own time of need. “You saved my life, Roberta!” she said.

I just had to take notes to share with you what she said :
– you are a good listener, low key, pleasant
– your work is thorough; any problem he finds he has fixed
– wonderful suggestions to make home more accessible for walker… widen doors
– found source of mice; mold
– supervises his workers; keeps teams working well together
– delighted with ideas for bookcases, recessed lights,
– helpful in choosing wall surfacing
– He hears me, gives me confidence.

I look forward to another time when Howard and I can work with your company again for a renovation. I will gladly share your info with friends and neighbors.” – Roberta Saunders

“Rick and his guys did a fantastic job! They were on time, on budget, and the work was exceptionally well done. We had a pipe burst that required a complete renovation of the kitchen, dining room, living room, and finished basement with full bath. Rick is great to work with. Almost always answers the phone himself and ALWAYS returns emails and phone calls expeditiously. His estimates are fair and he sticks to his word. His guys do high quality work and get it done quickly. I give Rick and his team my highest recommendation!
ON TIME, ON BUDGET – HIGH QUALITY WORK. What else could you want?
Thanks again Rick!”

“These guys are the best. They put my house back together after a broken pipe joint caused an epic flood. They were very professional, did really great work, and even fixed problems left behind by other contractors. Also Rick, the owner, corresponds by email and always answers promptly, which is a big plus in my book. I’m so glad I found this company.” – Sarah C.

“Rick helped me spruce up my kitchen by eliminating our overhead ceiling fan / light combination which was on a pull chain. I replaced it with a pillar candle light from Restoration Hardware, located about 18″ from where the fan had been, and installed a dimmer switch on the wall. His carpenter Eddie opened and closed the walls as needed, and finished everything beautifully to match our existing paint colors.
This was truly a GREAT experience. Rick was very patient as I made my choice, helping me evaluate information about appropriate clearances for my space as well as how much light I could expect to have in my room once the fixture was up. He coordinated the carpentry and electrical work at my convenience, following up all along to make sure the work was to my satisfaction. Our entire kitchen ceiling was repainted as part of the process, and I had no idea it could look so good – it is impossible to tell where the original fixture had been located. All in all, I couldn’t be happier with my new light. I would recommend Appalachian Contractors without reservation. This is a company that cares about excellent quality of work and exceptional professional service with a personal touch.” – Maureen Meier

“Rick – you and your team did a great job. The cottage came out very, very beautifully. The walls, floors, lights and the living room wall unit pulled it all together. The hall mirror brought that area to life; before, it had been dark and dreary. I will not forget all the time and work that went into the preparation (rot and mildew removal, insulation, etc.). Our sincere gratitude and thanks for helping us in our time of need.” – Marlene K.
