We have used Ken Spears Construction since we became homeowners in 1992. We were wanting to restore the vintage look of our 1912 house where some rooms had been modernized with interior baseboard and window trim that doesn't fit the historic charm of the rest of the house. Ken Spears Construction reproduced the trim making it look identical to the original woodwork. Most recently, Mike installed new basement windows for us. He also wrapped the exterior wood surrounding the windows with aluminum. He was friendly, efficient, and cleaned up the job site when he was

We are thrilled we call Ken Spears Construction! Greg Spears came out for the free quote and Michael performed the work. We needed a new steel entry porch door. Our old door needed to be custom order due to the rough opening being smaller than the standard size. Our old "custom" order door was a mess. This time I asked Spears Construction to make the rough opening larger to accommodate a new "standard" size door, order the new door, and replace/fix trim and existing siding. As an added bonus we also asked them to put in a new "doggy door we bought. Everything was completed in one day. I wasn't home when the work was done but when I came home everything was spotless and perfect! The door is amazing! It's as though it has always been here! I would highly recommend and hire them!

Is a Whole Home Remodel Right For Me?

Deciding to remodel your whole home is a big decision. Although it can be costly, you'll have the space that your family needs to be comfortable and can expect a great return on your investment if you ever choose to sell. If you still have some doubts about whether a whole home remodel is right for you, consider these questions:

  • Do you want to expand the size of your home?
  • Do you want to create a new layout to make your home more functional?
  • Do you want to age in place in your current home?
  • Do you want to replace outdated design features in your home like popcorn ceilings or worn carpet?
  • Do you want to make your home safer and more energy-efficient?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, a whole home remodel may be the right choice for your family.

We’re writing to express our heartfelt thanks to KSC for helping us with our Pella patio door and front door lock mechanism replacements. They came to our rescue in working through a muddle with Pella, including working very smoothly and effectively with Pella and doing so with an outcome that was so very positive for us.

Initially, it seemed that it would be easier to rob a Brinks truck than getting through to and discuss our issues with Pella in a cost-effective way, but KSC was able to cut through all the red tape and obtain a quick and cooperative response on our behalf and then KSC coordinated and managed the work that needed to be done, all with no charge to us. Wow!!

KSC's willingness to go way out of their way to stand behind their work, speak with other parts providers on behalf of their customers, even after the warranty period had passed, is truly a real testimony to their dedication and backing of their clients and their work.

When we celebrate Thanksgiving this year, KSC and the fact that we’ve had such a long, fruitful, and positive relationship together, will be one of the things that we’ll be very, very grateful for.
