“Working in the insurance industry I have personally seen subsequent damage caused by a lazy contractor or builder not making repairs properly, dishonest contractors not completing jobs and contractors and builders that are never seen again after a contract is signed – they only send subcontractors who have never meet the client. It was terrifying to find ourselves in an emergency situation with all of those experiences in the back of my head.

I was so afraid of getting taken advantage of because I didn’t know who to turn to for help finding a contractor. Thank you for restoring my faith in builders/contractors and for educating me along the way.”

“I have developed and maintained a professional relationship with Dave over the years. Dave has provided critical advice on building matters. I served as Director of the Bureau of Construction Codes for the State of Michigan for more than 18 years.

Dave’s knowledge and advice provided the guidance from a builder’s perspective to improve the standards used for the construction of new homes.”

“The subcontractors that David G. Schertzing Builders, Inc uses are, without exception, excellent! David was very willing to share their names and phone numbers with me and my clients, which is not always the case with other contractors. I was amazed when I saw the finished ‘paint job’ on walls and trim… the trim was as smooth as glass. Also, David and his subs thoroughly cleaned up the construction areas each day before they left the job..”

– Judy Reilly-Shaw

Once the work started, Dave was very good about letting us know what was going to be done and when. There were rarely any surprises, and certainly none that Dave couldn’t control. In fact most of the surprises involved us asking Dave to do additional tasks not mentioned in the bid (“as long as you’re here” projects) and he always did them cheerfully.

It was soon apparent that Dave looks upon his projects as if he was doing them for himself, and not just another client. He used our money as he would his own. He wouldn’t dream of cutting corners just to save a few dollars, but he also discouraged us from overspending ourselves when he felt it wasn’t necessary. We came to rely upon and trust his expertise.

Dave’s cheerful disposition and great sense of humor made our project a very pleasant experience. We didn’t start getting “contractor fatigue” as we did with projects in years past. Dave went from being “the builder” to a trusted friend in a matter of days.”

I can honestly say I did not have one negative experience with Mr. Schertzing during the entire design and build process of my house. Building a house is very stressful because of the many decisions that have to be made and problems that can arise. However, even when problems arose and slight delays occurred, Mr. Schertzing was never negative, explained to me the reason for delay or change in schedule, and informed me about how the work would be done. He also made several changes that I requested during the build without a single complaint.

Finally, after completion of the house, I hired Mr. Schertzing to build the deck on my house. After my experience with his craftsmanship on my house, I knew Mr. Schertzing was the only person I wanted to do the job. His experience again showed in the work he performed and I could not be happier with my deck.

Again, I could not recommend anyone higher in the field of building, construction, and carpentry than Mr. Schertzing. His professionalism and work product are unparalleled.”

In deciding to build a new home, we spent several years looking for the right home site and builder. In the course of that search we met many builders, and had extensive discussions with several. Dave is the one builder who seemed to recognize that he was building our HOME, not just a building. He demonstrates respect and consideration for his customer’s vision and is easy to work with.

Dave stayed in touch very well during construction. He was always available by phone or e-mail. He will see that your job gets done correctly and that you are happy with the results. There are many builders in the market, but we believe David G. Schertzing Builders stands out above the others!”
