We set up an appointment for them to come out and give me an estimate for a 3/4 bath renovation.
They were booked several weeks out but I went with it anyway. The day and time came and went with a now call, no show.
A couple days later I called an left a message about it to which they responded several days later that someone on my end had cancelled the appointment. This isn't true at all so after waiting almost a month I've wasted my time.
If they can't show up when they schedule themselves and then blame it on the customer I have to question using them at all.
If I had to sum it up in one word, it would be ''amazing''. Blake and Wendy turned our kitchen from a cramped, dilapidated, outdated kitchen into a great room that is a pleasure to cook and hang out in. The crew was VERY polite and VERY efficient in the demolition and subsequent installation of the new cabinets, hardwood floor, and granite countertop. We looked at the work just about every day during the span of the project. They took care of all our concerns, and they went out of their way to address some minor details after the work was officially done. We had 3-4 estimates for the work, and we have absolutely no regrets in choosing Harder Remodeling for our project.
Great company/people to work with - Job done on-time, exceeded expectations.
Speed and Efficiency
We are very pleased with the speed and efficiency displayed by Harder. We are overjoyed with our new basement.
Basement remodeling was completed as promised, on-time and with high quality workmanship.
Dedication to finish his projects on time
When we decided to undertake a major remodeling project we decided to interview 7 contractors, one recommended by our architect and six from the ''Troubleshooter List''. While all appeared very knowledgeable and competent, we made our choice to work with Mr Blake Harder, because all who wrote about him, complimented him about his dedication to finish his projects on time and within the budget.We were very pleasantly surprised. In addition to those two very hard to find professional qualities in a contractor, Blake had possessed a lot more. First he was extremely knowledgeable. He had practical solutions to every problem we had encountered, even those that stumbled our very experienced and reputable architect. He was always available with his cell phone. We will always remain grateful to him when we remember the time he came to cover the open roof on a rainy Saturday night around midnight. He was very well respected by his crew and his subs. He had by the way, exceptionally dependable and proficient subs particularly his Framer was the best we had ever seen. It is no surprise that we passed all our inspections from the City with flying colors and all at the first time. What impressed us the most was Mr Harder's honesty an integrity throughout this project. He is a rare find in an industry full of kick backs and overcharges and change orders. Blake sticks to his budget, works very hard to focus on the project and controls the start time of each sub meticulously to finish on time, gets along very well with the parties (The architect, the owners and the subs) and put all in harmony. As difficult and complicated as our project had been, we had fun in the process and more importantly, we continue to enjoy our new remodeled home every day. We have recommended Harder Remodeling to all of our family, friends and neighbors. We also recommend him to anyone who is interested in finding an excellent contractor without any reservations.
Our experiance with Harder Remodeling
We recently had a kitchen, family room and back porch project completed by Harder Remodeling and want to share our thoughts on the professional and quality service they provide. When considering having a remodeling/renovation project done it is natural to go though the list of items that identify a successful project; DOESNâ€™T TAKE A LOT OF TIME, ON BUDGET AS PROMISED, ON TIME AS PROMISED, RESONABLY PRICED and CLEAN. With previous projects weâ€™ve had other companies that failed in every one of these categories. But with Harder Remodeling we had a totally different experience. To begin with, Wendy and Blake are an amazing team that brings design and construction together to deliver a well planned and well executed undertaking. Once the project had been planned in all aspects and the start date was set we eagerly looked forward to our new living space. We were amazed to find that the project was executed by a team large enough to actually finish on time when we sure (given the old wisdom that for any project you should plan on double the budget and double the time) no one could finish in the time frame estimated. We learned later that most of the construction team has been with the company for over five years. As the project continued we found the work to be skilled and also about as organized as a renovation could be expected. There were no surprises in the negative. In fact Blake was very accommodating with slight variations we came up with. I found that if anything He attempted to estimate either right on or higher than the final billing (for a specialty door and door frame for example). Lastly, check them out as we did. Everyone we talked to about their own Harder Remodeling project absolutely loved it. I encourage you to have a quote from Harder Remodeling for your next project you will not be sorry you did.

Pros:ON BUDGET AS PROMISED, ON TIME AS PROMISED, RESONABLY PRICED and CLEAN There were no surprises in the negative.
We had a basement remodel and the price was competitive, and the project came in on budget and was completed on time. The crew was diligent, neat and hard-working. Blake is a perfectionist and he and his team take pride in their work. I have a lot of experience with remodelling and this was by far the best. Blake and his team did a great job.
Pros:Fair price, short time line, on-time, on-budget, experienced, provided recommendations, understood our limits, kind to children and dogs, did what he said would, all subcontractors came when they were supposed to
Cons:Did such a good job that now I want to fix up the rest of the house!
I can't wait to do more remodeling with Blake!
I find Blake and his staff to be professional, courteous, timely and responsible. Blake calls back promptly, his work is very detailed, he is flexible with changes and his prices are very reasonable. He went out of his way for us, coming over at ''off'' times to check on something or to put on some finishing touches. His team is trustworthy and very respectful of my house. I would highly recommend him to everyone and I can't wait to do more updates on my house!
Major remodeling of our bathrooms and kitchen were done very professionally and in time stated. The work was done in 5 weeks instead of 3 months as you would expect from the amount of work that was done including changes. If it were not for material order time for the changes, the work would have been done ahead of time agreed to. Blake's wife has a real talent for materials and creative design ideas for the look we were trying to achieve.
Pros:Craftsmanship and timeliness.
