Reviews

MY HOUSE HAD FLOODED!! I called a construction company in town that was doing a lot of advertising since they merged their business. They did come out and talk to me about doing repair work but I couldn't get them to return my calls with additional questions. If I couldn't get them to return phone calls, why would I want to do business with them?Someone had suggested contacting C-U Under Construction. I had no experience with them and no knowledge of their reputation in CU. It turns out that their were an excellent choice to do what I needed to get my home back in pre-flood condition.ADDISON BOYD came out to see what I needed. He was very pleasant and highly experienced. He thought of and suggested things I might consider for the repairs. As I had no experience at flood repair and insurance claims his insights were extremely helpful. I sensed his customer care and felt he was concerned with the correct kind of work needed and the quality of that work. I read reviews on C-U Under Construction showing just those standards.Their company took over coordinating old flooring removal, furniture move out and in, floor installation with Flooring Surfaces and carpentry work. Having them tie all 3 functions together and seeing to all the details was huge for me. It gave me ONE COMPANY to deal with!!For any wood working be sure to get RANDY/CARPENTER for wood work trim out. He has a high standard of work excellence and he knows what you need even before you do. He makes sure your woodwork is professional.Finally, the Project Supervisor TYLER CROWL, he kept it all flowing together in a timely and professional way. If something needed his review, his people were right on the phone with him. He always stopped by to check on the project, answer questions, check for quality and see to any detail that needed smoothing. He can even calmly handled a stressed out homeowner! He was quick to answer any texts and phone calls. He made you feel like he had time for your needs and that you were an important customer for them. He went way beyond the normal expected work level and did some little things that made me a VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER!

I can't thank C-U Under Construction enough for the beautiful job they did on our new multi-level composite deck. From the first consultation until the completion of the whole project, I was given excellent customer service and communication. Tyler had a can-do attitude when I told him about my ideas, and he made our vision a reality. He was able to present a 3D design and exact price quote, which other companies we spoke to would not offer for this complex design. Landon, our project manager, went above and beyond to handle all of the details and provided above and beyond communication throughout the project. Jeff and team were meticulous about every detail of the construction, and the workmanship is superior to anything I've ever seen. Every single employee, from the electricians to the guys who picked up the equipment, were wonderful and professional. The finished project and the whole experience exceeded our expectations by far. We have already signed up to have our next project, new siding, completed by the C-U Under construction team. Thank you!

CU Trade Services recently put in a new AC unit for our rental house when the old one suddenly broke. They came fast when we needed help and all the employees we dealt with were great.We also just had new countertops installed in our kitchen we purchased through CU Under Construction. Again, we couldn’t have asked for better service and the templater and installers did a super job and were very nice guys to deal with.

My wife and I are so very pleased with the remodel of our four season room provided by the terrific professionals at C-U Under Construction. With leadership by Jarrod Brant, our Construction Project Manager, the project was guided through many challenges, and we're so proud of the result. We are fortunate to know and will always appreciate the friendly, dedicated, and caring team of wonderful people at C-U Under Construction.

CU Under Construction has been fantastic to work with! Have used their HVAC service and couldn’t be happier. I purchased an ecobee thermostat and my set up only had 4 wires and the ecobee called for 5. I hired CU to come out and replace the wire and they had an alternative solution for the wiring which saved me hundreds of dollars! On top of that, my sensor that I purchased with the ecobee was bad and they took it for me and filed a warranty replacement on my behalf even though I didn’t purchase the unit from them. I’m a customer for life!

CU Under Construction installed a little under 100 front doors for our property last summer in just under a week. They were quick, proficient and very easy to work with. They communicated with our residents effectively and handled all their questions in a timely response. Really looking forward to working with them again.

The craftsmen at C-U Under Construction, especially Jarrod, did a wonderful job on re-creating my master bathroom. They are very professional and did a meticulous job. This was especially difficult with the Covid pandemic and the unexpected delays that brought to the project so although the project took longer than expected it was completed to a beautiful finish that was worth waiting for.

We had them paint a room, fix our roof, put on a new roof, and do several small jobs around our house over the course of a few years. Highly recommend.

I had roof hail damage from a freak summer storm. Zach made the process simple, painless and extremely easy. The office staff was always on top of things and informed me about deliveries and when they expected to start the project. During the project the crew worked quickly, efficiency together. Zach, the sales rep, stopped by 4 or 5 times during the project checking in to see how things were going. I ended up needing all new sheeting, Zach reached out to my insurance agent for me and worked with him to pay for the sheeting. Overall I was VERY VERY pleased from the beginning of the quote to the completion of the job. I would recommend these guys to my friends, my family and to ANYONE.

Jeremy Janes and CU Under Construction did an excellent job on rebuilding a chimney and replacing my roof and decking in April 2020. I was referred to CU Under Construction by several friends and contacted them for an estimate on a complete rebuild of my chimney due to water damage. Jeremy was very responsive and had an estimate back to me quickly. While he was inspecting the chimney he found hail damage on my roof and worked with my insurance company directly to get my entire roof and decking replaced and fully covered by insurance. It was incredibly smooth and low stress thanks to Jeremy's attention to detail. I have worked with contractors before and none have left my house as clean as CU Under Construction when they left! Jeremy was responsive, communicated often, highly professional, followed through on exactly what he said they could do, and managed the project well so that I have full confidence in the quality of the work. The next time I have a project for my house, Jeremy is the one I trust to help me figure it out. I highly recommend Jeremy Janes and CU Under Construction.

The service and price were both excellent! Our AC went out during 110+ heat wave and they came out within 6 hours of calling for an appointment. Andrew from CU- HVAC was very professional and had the problem fixed in 30 minutes. I will definitely use them again!
