"In August we had the Jokela group renovate a small bathroom in our house in Kalamazoo which was built in the 1950s. They removed the very old black-and-white checkered tile from the walls and then beautifully replastered them. The rest of the renovation (vanity, tub, surround, floor) went extremely well and my wife and I decided to ask for their help with another house we used to live in and still own. It is an old house in Lansing (built around 1920s). It needed a lot of work; Plaster, kitchen, roof, painting, carpet complete w floor plan changes in bath and kitchen, siding repair and more. It has been difficult in the past for me to find a full-service general contractor with the experience and the know how to solve problems in an older home like this. Many will simply not return my calls. Houses this old and older were often not built to accommodate modern developments in rooms like bathrooms-so redoing one in a house like this can be problematic. The Jokela group makes it look easy. More importantly, if and when unforeseen issues arise Dennis Jokela is quick to communicate and discuss options. Also, there were times when he noticed issues and made adjustments based on his experience and know-how that were right on track. I enthusiastically recommend Dennis and his crew for general contracting work. Especially if like myself if you have had trouble finding contractors who are knowledgeable about and willing to work on small, older homes."

R J Mott Construction

RJ Mott Construction remodeled much of my home in preparation for selling it earlier this year. We had all the formal areas tiled with 24"x 24"ceramic, the baths were rectangular vinyl tiles staggered with grout lines that truly looked like they were tile, the oak cabinets and banisters were redone to an Espresso finish, cabinet pulls added everywhere (we had 74 cabinets!), and the informal entertaining areas done in wood flooring. Everything was exceptional and my real estate agent who saw before and after was thrilled. The house listed and sold for more than we anticipated and I believe it was all due to the work done by RJ Mott Construction!

Fraelich Brothers Construction

Todd and George Fraelich of the Fraelich Brothers recently replaced all the dry wall in our main bathroom, added a new light, installed a new fan and patched several holes in the walls. They were FAST and cleaned up after themselves very well. The drywall job looks amazing! You can't tell where the seems are at all! All the holes they patched are perfectly smooth. Thanks guys for a job well done. I would definitely recommend the Fraelich Brothers to anyone.

My wife and I have had several custom builds completed by Trailhead; very polite and respectful. He also performs high quality work with great attention to detail. This is why he will be back for future projects.

Prebble Construction

Leland is a proficient, efficient, and knowledgeable contractor. Our first experience with him was several years ago when he built new basement steps for us. More recently, he has expanded and remodeled a bathroom, including electrical and plumbling. He laid concrete for our driveway and built a custom gate for our fence. He installed a drainage system to relieve the buildup of water in our back yard. He installed a whole-house water filter and our water softener, dishwasher, and garbage disposal. He laid a concrete slab for our Tough Shed foundation. Our home was originally built in 1946, so there were many challenges in doing some of the remodeling. Leland met each challenge with vigor and persevered until the job was done. He even came late in the evening one night to remove and level our kitchen floor so the Pergo installers could install the new flooring properly. He is one of the most amiable people I have ever met...always having a positive, "can-do" attitude. He definitely has gone "above and beyond" expectations throughout our many projects. His work is of excellent quality. I really can't think of anything he could have done better throughout our many projects....he listened to our needs and did an excellent job meeting them. I would definitely recommend him for someone needing a competent, reasonably priced contractor who knows his stuff!
