John just squeezed in some last minute repairs before the closing on our house. He was on time, on budget, and quick to return phone calls. His workmanship was also spot on and I appreciated his knowledge of building codes. He went above and beyond the call of duty when I threw in some last second extras. SO glad I read the other good reviews and went with him!!

We had John's crew replace our deck, add a window and re-side the back of our house. This was actually a fairly large job because the new deck included a roof and a good bit of finish work. John's primary carpenter on my job (Bryan) was superb. Members of my family are professional contractors and furniture builders and even they thought his work was quite good. None of the work was less than decent and overall we are very pleased. As a side note, I deal with quite a few contractors and in my view what makes John a cut above is his responsiveness and attention. A bad contractor can drive you insane by simply not calling you back quickly when something isn't right. You won't have that problem with John.

We recently contracted John to replace our siding and then liked the job so much that we asked him to help create and build custom-made shutters for us. The pricing is very competitive, the work is done in a timely manner, and probably most importantly, the results are great! Once we had our siding replaced, we decided to paint the whole house and were able to have John's team do this without a huge added cost. He also made his team available to replace some rotted wood while they were there and rebuild the deck (which were not part of the original estimates, so it was great to have it done all at once). The results were wonderful. I have gotten multiple comments from neighbors about how great it looks. Once we saw the finished product, we asked John and his team to build custom shutters for us. I can't even begin to tell you how great they look (John is welcome to post a picture to his web site!). Again, many, many compliments from neighbors. I will definitely use John again for my next project.

John's crew replaced our back deck and two French doors last year. It was a very high quality job with competitive pricing. We recently noticed one of the French doors was not wired correctly as it pertains to our alarm system. When we called, he was in the general area and dropped by our house within a few hours. He fixed the wiring issue within minutes. I am so pleased with his work product and demeanor that I have asked him to bid another project on our house. I plan to use him for years to come.

If you are considering a contractor to add outdoor space to your home, we want to highly recommend John Temmel and his team! They went way above and beyond what we expected to build a beautiful and spacious screened porch for our mother. She absolutely loves her new outdoor space. Honest, efficient, professional, and superb craftsmanship are just a few superlatives to describe the work that John, Brian, and their team of workers completed for us. Don't delay, call him today!

We had our siding done by John and his team in March of 2012. They came in and did a complete replacement of the terrible ABTCO siding (the old stuff subject to a class action lawsuit) with hardiplank and left us very satisfied. Of the three firms that gave us quotes, John's was the lowest price, and he also made note of several other issues the others didn't, such as non-flushed bird boxes and the like, and corrected those issues during the install at no additional charge. I was very pleased. We also bought next light fixtures, which he installed at no charge. He knew lots of industry tricks, too--like waiting for a dry, sunny day to paint. Feedback? Minor, but perhaps a little more speed to completing the overall job would be ideal, and a little more follow-up on any final site checks once the job is completed. But these are minor niggles and don't in any way diminish the fact that we got a great deal and a great job. The house looks like a brand-new building, and the job still looks flawless two years later. In perhaps the best compliment, our neighbor across the street ended up going with John for his job. I'd highly recommend John and his team.

We wanted to tear down our old standard builder deck and replace it with a large deck and screened in porch. I called and got several estimates. John was extremely competitive with his pricing. He was courteous, professional and very accommodating. Things did get off to a slow start but his finished product is amazing!!! He has assembled a very hard working and dedicated team. John had some great ideas for us to incorporate into our plan. He was very accommodating with changes to our original plan and even went above and beyond the scope of work to fix our gutter that was falling down and drainage problem in the yard. I am very pleased with the end product as is everyone that comes over. Our screened-in porch is now the envy of the neighborhood. I would definitely use John and his team for future projects. Thanks, John, for the awesome screened-in porch! P.S. even the county inspector wanted his contact information because he said John's work was "outstanding". Now, that's a compliment!!!

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
