    Working with Jim was great.  He listened to what we wanted to do, and along with his suggestions came up with a floor plan that we love.  The updated schedules were really nice.   They kept us informed on all aspects of our home improvement project.   Professional, courteous, and organized.

  • Marv and Joy of Maribel ~ "We want to say our "deepest" thank you for..."

    We want to say our "deepest" thank you for picking us up when we were down and needing help.  You gave us the professionalism and artistic touch that now makes us feel at home, at last!  Each and everyone of you treated us in friendship and honesty - not just as clients.  That makes our transition so special and good.  We will always be grateful.

    ~ Marv and Joy

    P.S. We love our home!
  • Bill and Marge of Manitowoc ~ "I would like to compliment each..."

    "I would like to compliment each and every one of your employees that worked on our house.  I was impressed with the work safety while working on the roof and also with the care given to make sure all was cleaned up and to make sure no roofing nails were in the lawn.  The men were all courteous and friendly to talk to. I would also like to compliment John and Gregg for the care taken in doing their job.  The end result is a testimony to their craftsmanship.  All hours spent on the job were productive.   John and Gregg eagerly answered any and all questions I had.   Employees of this caliber are to be appreciated.  Thanks fellows!"

  • Phil and Susan of Two Creeks ~ "Our experience building our new home with Jim Reif Builders..."

    Our experience building our new home with Jim Reif Builders has been pleasant from first meeting to move-in to the present day. The planning and estimating were thoughtful and thorough. The actual construction process was a real pleasure. The Reif people were able to adjust for any inevitable weather delays smoothly and we moved in on the day promised when they made their proposal 9 months earlier. On time, on budget, great people to work with, a wonderful experience. We'd do it again tomorrow but we'd rather enjoy this house for a while.

  • Kirk and Chris of Manitowoc ~ "We would like to express our gratitude to..."

    We would like to express our gratitude to you for the workmanship and the professionalism during our home remodeling project.  Unfortunately, this letter is long overdue however we would like to thank you and your team for the dedication and professionalism that was shown to us.  We were especially impressed with several; Brian, Bryan and Dan.  We would like to commend them for the helpfulness and respectfulness that was extended during a definite time of upheaval in our home.  Your team made themselves available to us to answer any questions and were receptive to our ideas and input.   The commitment and skill of your team is reflected in the final project and we are very pleased.   Thank you!

  • Jeff and Sandi of Two Rivers ~ "Jim Reif Builders constrcuted our home..."

    Jim Reif Builders constructed our home back in 2006.   During this time, we found working with Jim and his staff to be an absolutely wonderful, uncomplicated experience.   When we decided to remodel our unfinished basement, we didn’t hesitate to Call Jim Reif Builders.

    From the very beginning Jim and his staff were willing to listen to our needs and desires and proceeded accordingly.   The floor plan Tom drew up for us was perfect.    The talent and vision Kay Faust, the interior designer, brought to the project was invaluable to us.   She helped us make excellent decisions in selecting the flooring, paint for the walls, stain, countertops etc. bringing everything together beautifully.   Brian, Matt and Steve are all accomplished carpenters; they couldn’t have been more friendly, helpful, conscientious and respectful to us and of our home.

    Jim and his staff did a first-rate job scheduling the subcontractors and keeping them on schedule.   The subcontractors are all very professional and do quality work.  He only hires the best and holds them to the same high standard he sets for himself and his staff.   We saw Jim frequently at our home, checking the progress and quality of workmanship.  If he didn’t show up personally, he was in constant contact with us via email or phone.   He stands by his belief in doing the job right the first time. 
    We give Jim, his staff and subcontractors the highest recommendation and would never think twice about calling on them in the future.

    Once again, Jim Reif Builders has “exceeded our expectations”.

    ~ Jeff and Sandi
  • Matt and Kathy of Manitowoc ~ "After more than a year in our new home, we thought it was time..."

    After more than a year in our new home, we thought it was time to reflect back on our building experience in the form of this letter of thanks to you and your organization.  Let us start out by saying how happy we are with our new home.  The fit and finish is nothing short of impressive.  We still discover details where keen attention was paid to quality, fit and finish.  From the time we first met with you to discuss "turning our dreams into reality" to moving day, we still can't believe how painless and trouble free the whole building process really was.  Kudos to Tom, Diane, and Emily for their attention to detail in monitoring building progress along with handling day to day paperwork.  Your site foremen, John and Brian, along with Vern and the rest of your carpenters were a pleasure to work with.  They are to be commended for keeping the job in focus and on schedule, while offering suggestions to make the house an even better finished product.  Last but not least, your sub-contractors.  All of the subs I dealt with were very courteous and cordial not to mention accommodating in our decision making.  They also have been very timely with any questions I've had along with addressing any housekeeping items. 

    We wish nothing but success in the future for Jim Reif Builders.

    ~ Matt and Kathy
  • Mansoor and Kelly of Manitowoc ~ "Working with Jim was Great. He listened..."

    I just wanted to formally Thank you for doing such a fine job with our kitchen and bathroom remodel.  Your attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile were most appreciated.  The sub-contractors you hired were all very professional in their demeanor and the project was only minimally inconvenient (when it came to being without a kitchen).  I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly things came together.  Once again, Thank you!

    ~ Mansoor and Kelly
  • Joan and Steve of Manitowoc ~ "Thanks so much for our beautiful sunroom addition. Everyone at..."

    Thanks so much for our beautiful sunroom addition. Everyone at Jim Reif Builders went way beyond expectations to make the process as smooth as possible and give us a fabulous new room.

     We owe so much to Tom Arndt for drawing and redrawing the plans as we worked to get it "just right." Steve and Chris became almost like family in the early stages. The people who came after them were just as great to work with and totally dedicated to meeting our expectations. Kudos to their skills, patience, and customer service skills. Best of all - they are really nice people.

    The finished room is so much better than we had ever hoped for.  For the first-time we are enjoying all four seasons. Please pass along our sincere thanks to all your employees & subcontractors. Jim - Thanks especially to you for putting together such a great team & establishing a level of professionalism & customer service that is second to none. We know you do things right & stand behind your work.

    ~ Joan and Steve

    I'm writing this note to thank you and Jim Reif Builders for the excellent job you did on the remodeling project on our home.   My wife and I want to express our sincere thanks to you and all your workers for the quality of workmanship, the professionalism and above all the kindness and courtesy expressed by your workers during each and every day on the job.

     When making the decision to hire a builder for our project we relied on comments we had heard from our friends and from your previous clients and we are very happy that we chose Jim Reif Builders.

    You can be sure that we will do what we can to let people know who did the work and how satisfied we are with the project.  We proudly show off the remodeling project to whomever asks.  Several people have driven by, saw your sign and have stopped to take a look.  We've shown many friends and neighbors the project and are happy to answer any questions and tell them who did the work.  You and your employees and your subcontractors can be proud of the work you do and we look forward to doing business with Jim Reif Builders in the future!

    "Breathtaking" was one word used to describe the home you built for us. It has been nearly a year since we moved in, and everyone that has visited has been inspired by your ability to turn ideas into form and structure.  And while the attention to detail is the result your skilled tradesman; we are fortunate (and take pride in) showing the home to others.

     In summary, we would like to say "Thank you" for the fine home that you've built for us.

    ~ Ken and Laurie
  • Larry and Sandy of Manitowoc ~ "We want you all to know how very much we appreciate the excellent..."

    We want you all to know how very much we appreciate the excellent work you did for us with our home remodel/addition. Dealing with the entire Jim Reif staff has been a pleasure, from the start of our project to the final walk through.  We can't compliment your company enough and highly recommend you to our friends and family.

    Our most memorable experience is easy because it's the "WOW" factor.   Jim told us in the very beginning that it would be like this when we and others saw the finished project. That's exactly how it's been when most people see it.  The first morning after it was done, when we walked into our new kitchen and family room, we almost had to pinch ourselves because we just couldn't believe it was our home. The transformation was unbelievable!

    Words can say so little when someone has done so much, but we thank you with all our hearts.

    ~ Larry and Sandy
  • Cheryl of Mishicot ~ "We just wanted to say thanks again for everything - Absolutely Everything!..."

    Dear Jim and the wonderful staff of Jim Reif Builders,
    We just wanted to say thanks again for everything - Absolutely Everything! All your efforts, organization, speed, careful consideration to our budget and the extras were very much appreciated.  We are still working on getting organized - Everyone is so busy but we are all truly enjoying our own space. Thank you again. I'm convinced no one else would have been able to accomplish all you did in the time you had.  It truly was a pleasure working with everyone.   Hopefully we can do it again sometime soon. :-)

  • Arky and Judy of Two Rivers ~ "Jim Reif Builders recently did a remodel for us.  Going in, ..."

    Jim Reif Builders recently did a remodel for us.  Going in, my husband Arky, and I were very leary on what to expect.  A person hears so many horror stories about jobs gone wrong.  Jim Reif Builders far surpassed our expectations and the workmanship was excellent.  A schedule was provided and work was completed on time.  When an unexpected situation arose, Jim Reif Builders took care of everything.  When I was undecided, help & support was given.  The sub-contractors were professional and did excellent work as well. We highly recommend Jim Reif Builders and plan on hiring them in the future for additional remodeling.

    ~ Arky and Judy
  • John and Barb of Manitowoc ~ "Awesome job – we are both pleased and..."

  • Dave and Cindy of Manitowoc ~ "Through family and friends we have heard many good things about ..."

    Through family and friends we have heard many good things about the work ethics of Jim Reif Builders.  He did not let us down.  We recently had a small project to tackle consisting of a leaky, flat roof and the repair of the interior damage done to the drywall, insulation and molding.  We called Jim and he didn’t hesitate to get the job done for us.

    Jim is very thorough with even a small project and consistently followed through with all steps.  His crew and those that were contracted by him to do the work stood above any which we have had here before.  The quality of work done was excellent, and was finished in a timely manner.  You can tell he has a highly experienced staff and crew working for him and has set a professional standard for each of them to follow.

    We are very pleased with Jim Reif Builders and would recommend them to anyone looking for professional workers who are detail minded in every step of the way. Thank you for a job well done.

    ~ Dave and Cindy
  • Jon and Shawn Del of Manitowoc ~ "Our project and the circumstances surrounding it were unique..."

    Our project and the circumstances surrounding it were unique.  We interviewed four builders and found Jim Reif to be someone who lived up to his reputation.  Jim patiently and tirelessly worked with us to meet our needs, researching some innovative solutions and coming back to us with a plan that worked.  His ideas were helpful, his crew was courteous and very skilled, and Jim always communicated well throughout the planning stage and during the project.  A client must have confidence in his builder to have a successful project.  We heartily recommend Jim Reif Builders.

    ~ Jon and Shawn Del
  • Mike and Marilyn of Valders ~ "Thank you for another excellent job.  It is reassuring for..."

  • Ginny, local attorney's office of Manitowoc ~ "Just wanted to tell you again what a good job you and..."

    Just wanted to tell you again what a good job you and your people did here.   Including the transoms, which was your idea, was perfect.   The walls look like they should have been part of the original design.

    We are all very happy with the work and have had many compliments from visitors already!  The work was done quickly and efficiently and cleanly.  Thank you!

  • Peter of Two Rivers ~ "We contacted Jim Reif Builders, Inc. to give us an estimate on building a..."

    We contacted Jim Reif Builders, Inc. to give us an estimate on building a three-season room.  From the beginning, Jim was fair and up-front with us.  He spent a lot of time explaining the whole process and we accepted his contract bid.   We felt we could trust him, and we were not disappointed!  He was very patient with our many questions, and from the very start we felt comfortable dealing with him and his workers. 

    We were impressed with his employees – they were hard working, conscientious and very polite individuals!  In this day and age, when you see and hear so many negative things about the younger generation, it was nice to see such positive individuals with such a good work ethic.    We were pleased to have such people working on our building project!

    Although our project was not a major one, it was major to us, since we had never done anything like this before.    But Jim walked us through the whole process and kept us informed about everything that was going to happen.   He sent us emails with the upcoming construction schedule and would notify us immediately if something was going to be changed or modified.   If we had questions about anything, he would get back to us immediately.

    We are very pleased with the finished project!  The new three-season room is everything we imagined it would be!  Everyone who sees the new room has very, very positive comments and compliments!  But, most of all, WE love it!  It was hard for us to visualize the finished project when it was first started, but it is everything – and more – than we had first imagined!

    We are thankful to Jim Reif Builders, Inc. for the new three-season room!  All our dealing with Jim and his workers were positive – and for that we are grateful!

    Thanks, Jim, for turning our dream into reality!

    ~ Peter

  • Jeff and Sandi of Manitowoc ~ "Sandi and I want to thank you all for a job well done.."

    It was a difficult and stressful time for us - you came through under a very tight time constraint. We also want to thank all of the subcontractors that worked on the job. You have a fantastic organization - we could not be happier with the results. Again - thank you dearly.
    ~ Jeff and Sandi
  • Steven & Margaret of Manitowoc ~ "After owning ten acres of wooded property for almost 25 years..."

    After owning ten acres of wooded property for almost 25 years, we knew we wanted a special home that reflected our love of nature and could accommodate our extended family, both young and old. We wanted a home to blend into our wooded wonderland with style and grace.

    We did our research – attending the Manitowoc Home Shows and the Parade of Homes – and ultimately chose Jim Reif Builders.
    We were drawn to Jim Reif Builders because of the in-house designer, Tom Arndt, and their knowledge of designing and building homes in which to age. Each time we spoke with Jim or Tom we were struck by the care and craftsmanship they gave to their work.

    From our first meeting with Tom, we were impressed with how carefully he listened to our story and our dreams. He took time to get to know us, and our unique needs and desires.
    When Tom and Jim presented the initial home design to us we were amazed at how Tom had incorporated all of the design aspects we dreamed of – and then some. After spending all that time deeply listening to us, Tom had some ideas that he thought might work for us.
    At the beginning of this process both Jim and Tom told us they wanted the construction to be as stress-free as possible. Any questions we had were quickly answered; any concerns we had were reassured with greater insight into the building process.
    We were two people new to home construction, and Jim, Tom and the entire Jim Reif Builders staff made the design and building process easy, enjoyable, and even fun!
    ~ Steven & Margaret
