I'm not sure how 98% of all reviews for John Temmel received 5 stars on Kudzu. 5 stars means outstanding & I choose him because of it. I wish I could second that vote, but I've got about a 3.5 star job. The quality of work is mixed, the sub-contractors correct their mistakes (yes there were some) when you point them out, sometimes half grudgingly. John as the general contractor gets the work, schedules crews, orders material & deals with you as the client. Yes, he appears to be a nice & honest enough guy & seems attentive eye to eye in the beginning. However, on a probably average sized job he forgot to order material, ordered wrong material, crews showed up late or not at all without notice, and the job completion got delayed. When the job was finished I didn't see him inspect the work his guys did. instead he rather commented on the one part of the job that wasn't in his scope. All this being said, you get what you pay for, B-quality for a middle of the road price with some headaches along the way. You should get a decent job if you stay on your toes and double check your quote with what's done & don't let the sub-contractors get away with sloppy quality. The alternatives are crappy work (D to F level) of low-bid contractors as I have seen done on my neighbors houses, or high end residential contractors w/ enormous price tags.

I solicited quotes for siding replacement, painting, new gutters, and custom shutters from multiple vendors. Not only was John Temmel the most competitively priced quote, he was also the most knowledgeable. John and his crew were professional, conscientious, and timely. The project was completed on time and within budget. John mentioned many items the other firms overlooked such as improper flashing on my deck, the need to paint the pilings of my deck, etc. Also, John is currently correcting items that were not part of the original quote such as replacing the mortar in several areas of my brick fašade. He is currently finishing my punch list including touching up paint on the custom shutters (which look great). I would definitely recommend him and will use his company next year to replace my windows!

I found John Temmel on Kudzu.com and decided to go with him for siding replacement and rotted wood repair. The wife and I are absolutely thrilled with the job his company did. They gave us a competitive rate and went above and beyond our expectations on quality, details, and thoroughness. Feels like we have a new house and our neighbors are raving. I could not offer a higher recommendation than the endorsement we would give John Temmel the Siding Guy. They made a 30 year old house look brand new.

John and his team did such a wonderful job on our home that we hired him for our other house! His prices are very competitive but the value we received far exceeded the money we paid. John always listened to our concerns and acted quickly to fix them. We plan to use this contractor from now on.

We hired John to replace our entry door and a small window in our master sitting room. John is very easy to work with and does not use any high pressure sales tactics. We had several estimates for the work and all others told us we needed to replace the large foyer window above the entry door because it was leaking and causing water rot around the door below it. John said he could patch the leaks and no need to replace that window. Well, 2 years later, there are no leaks, no water, and no rot. We are pleased with the work performed.

John's team built a new 240 SF deck and stairs on our older home - and we are extremely pleased with the results. It was a challenging job that not only involved construction of the deck itself but masonry work around a new door they installed after removing a window and rerouting HVAC ducts and electrical wiring in the area beneath the entry. All in all we are very satisfied. The job took a little longer than we had initially hoped for, but most importantly it was done correctly by highly skilled professionals who paid close attention to detail. John always returned calls/texts promptly and his pricing was very fair. We would definitely consider using John and his team again for future projects.

I liked working with the same person who gave me the quote. John saw the scope of work and set honest expectations much better then the others I talked to. He also offered and did stucco crack repair that nobody else offered,it looks great! His personal touch, f/u and hands on to fix unusual problems was a real plus. We have a curve in our wall that was quite unexpected and he developed the perfect and cost savings solution. Very glad to know him and will definitely refer to my friends. M Kindregan

John Temmel and his crew replaced 20 windows and a back door at our home in December 2012. It is so much warmer in our home now and our heating bills have dropped dramatically!! I met with 5 contractors before replacing our windows and I am so glad we choose John Temmel!! He is very knowledgeable, honest and on site. His crew uncovered shotty work done on our home by previous contractors and fixed it correctly. If you want the job right - this is your guy!! We will be using his company for any future work on our home!!

John's crew did a great job rebuilding an old deck. Other companies wanted a complete tear down but John was able to inspect and re-use most of the existing support structure. Very pleased with the finished product and the price paid. I would recommend John if you are considering deck work.

John and his crew are great. They did a great job putting in hardy plank siding Jan 2013. On time, on cost and they cleaned up everything well. Would hire John for other work in a minute!

John &his team installed new siding on our home, painted the exterior, &fixed some problems w/our steps due to settling. What I appreciated about John, aside from the top-quality work, fast service, &reasonable rates, is that he understood that we were putting our home on the market &recommended small fixes that would help us pass a buyer's inspection. After the job was done, he called not only to check in but to inform us that he'd missed a minor item that he'd promised to take care of &wanted to come fix it. How many other contractors would do that?!

I purchased a foreclosure in Summer 2009 that had LP siding. I knew it needed to be replaced and researched on Kudzu and found Temmel Siding was highly rated. John, along with other contractors, came out in Summer 2009 and provided a quote. Unfortunately, the home purchase had depleted my funds and I was unable to begin the repair at the time. I informed John of the situation, but he continued to stay in touch by sending emails over the last three years. Early September, I was ready to proceed with the siding repair and contacted John again. He came out and assessed the home and I decided to proceed with the repair. Prior to the repairs, I informed John I had guests arriving Friday for a weekend stay and he assured me the home would be completed. When the siding team arrived Monday morning, they were very professional and efficient. The siding was torn off in two hours and the Hardie siding was placed on the home. The siding team found a few areas of sheathing rot and replaced it with new material. The siding was completed in 2.5 days and the paint team arrived and prepped the siding for paint. The paint was completed this past Friday prior to my guests' arrival and the job looks awesome. My neighbors have stopped by inquiring into who did the job. John is trustworthy, consistent, efficient, meticulous, and does what he says. I will definitely use and refer John in the future!

John and his crew removed all of my siding and replaced it with Hardi-Plank and it looks great! His painting crew did a excellant job and they had to take extra care of my plants around the house, which they did do. I also had all of my windows replaced and what an improvement inside and out!! I'm sure the power bills will be going down with the energy savings I should realize soon. Before selecting John's company, I did research and compared pricing of the materials that he quoted me. It may have taken a little longer to complete the job but the cost savings added up! I had a few additional issues that needed to be addressed and he made sure that these were done at no cost!! That's is one of the perks that most companies don't do. What customer service and very much appreciated! Keep up the great work John and crew and thank you all again for a great job!

Earlier this year I contracted a crew to tear down and rebuild a 25 year old deck so that I could host my Daughter's wedding party outside in May which sounds like an easy task. Well the short of it the contractor did such a bad job that even I could tell it was not right and out of code. Needless to say they did not finish the deck. After meeting with dozens of contractors to clean up the half built out of code deck John Temmel and I were able to come to an agreement. John's crew showed up right on time and within a few days the deck was complete looking better than I had ever expected. The crew was polite, meticulous and precise. Next project I have I will start by calling John Temmel because I now know it will be done right at a fare price.
