Description of Work

Since the project was a reconstruction of another set of contractors' errors and cover-ups, John Teschky would honestly appraise every situation, put forth an honest estimate of time and cost and was accurate & dependable for both aspects. Teschky had to rebuild north, east, and south sides of our existing home. He also incorporated steel beams & column supports within the interior, in order to remove walls. Teschky's crews were all professional workers and gentlemen throughout the 2 year construction project. His project manager, Brian Simzyk, was absolutely diligent and professional in his every act within the project. Remained good hearted and good spirited throughout the difficult to solve situations that would come up with this type of reconstruction project.

Member Comments

Honest, dependable, on time, perfectionist, extremely careful, courteous, good humored, good men in their selected fields. We recommend them to anyone we care about. We will contract with John Teschky for any future projects. Lots of unknown problems with the structure of home due to shoddy workmanship years ago. Teschky was extremely capable in solving every problem. We hired Teschky, Inc. as a time and materials general contractor. Everything was always presented to us first, explained and dependably & cost effectively produced to our satisfaction. We are still in the midst of decorating the interior, but will soon be having
John Teschky to our home for the celebration with champagne (that he inferred at the get to with him that we would be enjoying after the project was finished. He was right).

Dear John:

Enclosed please find my final payment for the work you did on my house.

Dear John,

Just a note to thank you for the excellent work by Teschky Incorporated on our kitchen remodeling and floor installation. We could not be happier with the result.

More than that, however, you made a potentially difficult process as easy as possible.

Cliff and the crews came when they said they would, completed what they promised, and performed in a professional, timely, and friendly manner at all times.

Your recommendation of John Durbin and Exclusive Woodworking also proved to be invaluable. John and Exclusive provided very good design work, excellent advice, and fine craftsmanship.

Your willingness to accommodate our scheduling and staging needs saved us time, headaches, and money.

And, the quality of the work was exceptional.

When Len and Sherry suggested we call you, we knew of our reputation, and that Len would not work at a second-class operation.

Our expectations have been exceeded. Thank you again.

Sincerely,

Joel & Judy

Once more, we appreciate your attention to detail.
