Client Testimonial

Englund Construction’s #1 goal is to make our clients happy. We want you to be satisfied with the results, and will go above and beyond to make sure the job is done right!

We understand how frustrating and stressful building and remodeling can be, and we’re here to help make the process less stressful on you and your family.

Recently, we were lucky enough to have a client write us a letter thanking us for a job well done. We’re flattered, and wanted to share it with our friends:

If you’re unable to read the image, it says:
“To: Tad Englund

Shirley and I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for the fantastic results you accomplished on the remodel of our home. It has surely far surpassed our expectations and we really love every aspect of the design and quality of workmanship you and the subcontractors you selected put forth in this project.

So, while we take a short pause to move in, unpack, and decorate prior to any further work to be done, we wish you and Rich all the best of health and success until we meet again.

Thank you,
John (Jack) Cutler, Homeowner”
