Customer Testimonials

PortSide Builders did an excellent job for us.  Our entire remodel was done while we were out of state so we had to put our complete trust in our builder and depend on their expertise.  We wanted a completely updated home so there was an enormous amount of detail to be addressed.  Everything from design to the implementation was exceptional.  The biggest surprise was that the project was on schedule throughout and we were able to move in on the date we were given at the beginning of construction which is unheard of!  We are thrilled with the final outcome.

Phil & Dru Harvey

We had worked with PortSide on past projects and were pleased to work with them again for our sunroom addition.  We were not disappointed!  Everyone we worked with including office staff, project planners/managers, crew, and subcontractors did an excellent job.  We have found those associated with PortSide take pride in doing quality work.  The project moved along according to the timeline we received and we are very pleased with the craftsmanship.  Our project manager was a great communicator so we always knew what to expect and when.  Overall, we had a great experience.  We love our sunroom and if we had another project we would look to PortSide first.

Michael & Ann Morgan

To us, PortSide means trust, integrity, and commitment.  As residents of Florida, we are unable to be onsite very often.  However, knowing that Joel Daoust is our project coordinator, has given us a high level of comfort during this process.  Our every request has been met with a smile.

We would recommend PortSide to anyone looking for a custom builder.  Thank you to everyone at PortSide.

Jim & Glenna Thompson

I was very pleased with PortSide’s work from start through completion, and have the highest regard for Jim Englebert, who supervised the construction of this home, and made myriad contributions at every step of the building process.

R.J. Rose

Couldn’t be happier with the beautiful home PortSide constructed.  From design to the finished product, PortSide was easy (even fun) to work with.  They used great creativity in helping us turn our vision into reality — while staying within budget.  PortSide guided us through everything from how to position the home in order to maximize sunsets, to the use of materials that would minimize maintenance.  Our wonderful project manager, Jim, kept everything on schedule and was extremely responsive to any questions we had.  He had a keen grasp of what we wanted, and he delivered beautifully.  We are thoroughly enjoying our new home, and are extremely happy that we chose PortSide.

Ann & Peter Neuhaus

PortSide was great to work with from the initial visit through the completion of the project.  They helped us to see the big picture of the renovation and presented design details that really finished off our kitchen.  These details made the new renovation flow nicely into our house and make it fell like the new kitchen was always here.

Kris & Elizabeth Wilson

In addition to PortSide building our house in 2007, this project was the fourth one they done for us.  We keep coming back to PortSide for good reasons.  They are customer focused and responsive, they stick to a schedule, and they perform quality work for a fair price.  If we undertake a fifth project, we will definitely be contacting PortSide again.

Ed & Helene Conlon

We entered this project a little timid and unsure if building a home was right for us.  Zach Juadis helped us take some ideas and turned them into a house we love.  We relied on him and everyone at PortSide for their guidance and knowledge in the choices we made.

A special “thank you” to every PortSide employee and sub-contractor we met on site.  Everyone we talked with was friendly, knowledgeable, and certainly hard working.  They took pride in what they were doing and helped us understand their process and answered any questions we had.

We love it! Thank You!

Scott & Gail Stewart

We needed to add an addition to our home so my husband’s mother could move in with us.  Joe Englebert helped us design and build a beautiful master suite off the backside of our home.  Joe listened attentively to all of our wants and needs and built us everything we dreamed it could be.  You and your team were wonderful to work with!! I highly recommend PortSide for all your building needs.

Bill & Jeanine Stadler

PortSide Builders has been more than just a construction company for us. They made us feel like family. PortSide was with us every step of the way. From home design, to lot purchase, referring us to a loan officer, answering questions, and making our dream home a reality.We definitely made a connection with our Home Designer, Zach Juadis, and feel we have made a friend for life. Thank you for helping us every step of the way to build our dream home!

Ryan & Melissa Romenesko

The expertise and assistance PortSide Builders provided has been invaluable. Their work in facilitating site selection and building approvals with local planning commissions has made it possible for us to determine and establish locations that have proven very successful.

Lydia Bessert, Baylake Bank, Vice President-Buildings & Facilities

“We chose PortSide Builders because they listened so well to our request to build the most energy efficient home practical, using innovative techniques. They were all enthusiastic about our ideas, from designers to job site personnel, and partnered with us to build our dream.”

Tom & Bev Prohl

We had been planning to remodel the main floor of our home for quite a while. Our Custom Designer, Joe Englebert, worked patiently with us until we arrived at a design that we could get really excited about. Then our Construction Coordinator, Joe Huempfner, and the construction crew came in and got the job done. PortSide’s workers were very polite, hardworking and talented, and they cleaned up at the end of each day. We couldn’t be happier with the whole experience, and the overall results are amazing!

Mark & Molly Griffin

It has been a real pleasure working with all those involved in all of the three projects that PortSide has constructed for me over the past years. I have found that PortSide’s craftsmanship has been as good as any of the work that I have seen in my 55 years of construction.

Tom Goss

We had a great experience with our kitchen remodel. All aspects went smoothly and we are so happy with the results. Everyone was awesome to work with and we would highly recommend your company.

Keith & Gail Klipstine

We are very happy with the results of the remodel and the addition of a sunroom and master bedroom suite that PortSide Builders planned and completed for us. Not only were the PortSide employees and subcontractors professional throughout the design and construction process, they were also kind, understanding and helpful. The craftsmanship of the finished project is excellent. We would recommend PortSide to anyone with a building or remodeling project.

The Tribes

We want to thank the crew at PortSide for the great job they did on our home remodel. Working with our Custom Designer was an easy, pleasant experience. He took time to listen to what we were interested in and come up with plans that fit our needs. Our construction coordinator and the construction crew listened to us and were very responsive to our questions. We are very pleased with how the kitchen and family room turned out. We wouldn’t hesitate to use PortSide again or recommend them to our friends.

Bruce & Mary Meyer

We are so happy we chose PortSide Builders to do our kitchen remodel. From the first meeting to the final walk through, they have proven to be efficient, detail oriented and trustworthy. All of our questions and/or concerns were answered and addressed in a friendly and timely manner. We are most grateful that PortSide Builders made our kitchen dreams become a reality. We look forward to working with them on other remodeling projects in the future.

Diane & Gary Thiel

We have been extremely impressed with the services provided by PortSide Builders. At the beginning of our project they provided us with a work schedule and they always kept to the schedule. When we had a question or concern it was immediately addressed. Most of the time issues were addressed even before we mentioned them. We are extremely happy with PortSide and would recommend this company to anyone contemplating home remodeling, roof replacement or any other type of building project.
