“John did an excellent job on transforming my three outdated 70’s bathrooms into modern, clean, and sleek rooms that match my surrounding updated areas. I had a home appraisal completed after the remodel as part of a refinance and the home value increased significantly. John completed the remodel in a week and a half an minimized the loss of use as much as possible. I would recommend John Leannarda he was professional, clean, and punctual, and fairly priced.”

“Since the moment I contacted John to build our deck we were completely satisfied with the process. He was very courteous, responsive and punctual. He always followed through with the intended plans and never hesitated to answer all my questions (I ask a lot). Our deck was completed on time and the final product was beautiful. John and his crew took the time to construct a high quality deck and the finished product is the envy of my neighbors. In addition to our deck, John has also constructed a poker room and wet bar in my basement, both of which turned our beautifully.

John is one of those rare contractors that is highly skilled, reasonably priced but most importantly true to his word. I would highly recommend him and would never use anyone else.”

We interviewed several contractors before making our decision on who would build our deck. After our meeting with you we knew our search was over. You not only returned our initial call the same day, but you came at the appointed time and were prepared, after giving you the dimensions for the deck, to give us an estimate at our first meeting. Your estimate was right on the money.

When you called to tell us you were ready to start building the deck, you and your great crew came on the day promised and worked for 5 days straight to build a big, gorgeous deck. We couldn’t be happier. In our neighborhood there is “deck envy” because of your beautiful job. You are professional, polite, meticulous, and take real pride in your work. We would hire you again for any remodeling project. We wouldn’t hesitate to refer you to our neighbors – in fact we already have!

“We were, and continue to be, absolutely delighted with both our new front porch itself as well as the building process with John Leannarda. When we first thought about adding a porch across the front of our house, we checked with other homeowners in Samhill to get referrals for builders. The name that came up most was John’s, although I wasn’t able to find any advertising for him. It seems his business comes mostly from word of mouth and that all of his customers hang onto his number! From the minute we sat down to talk with John about our project, we discovered that although he brings much experience to the task, our project would reflect our needs, tastes and budget. While working on our project John demonstrated a meticulous attention to detail, a credible schedule that we could count on, prompt and courteous contact with us, knowledge of a large number of suppliers, so that we got the best materials at the best price, and truly personal concern toward our project as though it were at his own home. Many people remark that our front porch looks like it “fits” the house exactly (and presume it must have been part of the original site construction, though it wasn’t). In the end, our front porch was beyond our dreams!”

Dear John,

I wanted to write to you and thank you for the new deck you recently installed. I was thinking back to the first work you did for me after I moved to my new home in February of 2000. Since that time you have installed 3 decks, one screened-in porch and completely finished my basement into a beautiful recreational room. Your work has always been of the finest quality and you and your crews have always acted professionally and skillfully. I would highly recommend you to family, friends and neighbors.

Hi John,

I want you to know that Judy and I are very pleased with the final results on the deck. The family initiated it’s use this past weekend with a gathering on Saturday, and everyone really enjoyed and commented on the spaciousness and added room. The workmanship is great, and as I stated once before, the outward appeal and look really make a positive difference for the house! I very much appreciate how quickly you responded to my request to replace the top cap with Trex — I especially like the routing on the cap, which is a very nice touch.

The bottom line is that you guys did a great job. We have a wonderful deck that we’ve already enjoyed immensely, and are very happy as customers. We definitely will recommend you to others in the neighborhood who are thinking about decks, finished basements, or other such projects. Feel free to use our deck as an example of your work to potential customers.

“John is an excellent contractor and I would recommend him to anyone. He did an outstanding job building both our outside porch and finished basement. Reliable and quality service accurately describe his company’s commitment to excellence…all at the promised price!”

Hi John,

I didn’t get a chance to thank you upon the completion of our deck. We LOVE our Trex deck and have many envious neighbors. The finished product turned out even better than we had hoped. We would highly recommend a Trex deck as well as the Trex railing components. The decorative railing is what makes it really stand out. We just got deck furniture and are looking forward to spending more time outdoors. We appreciate the professional service you gave us, the fair price and of course the wonderful outcome of the finished product.
