We were beyond pleased with our working relationship with BYK Construction. Paul and Tim were thorough, integral and timely. It is evident they take pride in their work from start to finish and we could tell they enjoy their profession. When situations or changes arose that needed a quick decision they offered workable solutions without compromising our end goal. We have and will continue to refer BYK to friends and family without hesitation.

To Potential BYK Construction Clients During the selection process to hire a contractor, we felt Paul and Tim Woodmansee could see the vision of the design we desired for our home. They seemed just as excited about the project as we were. We reached our decision to hire them based on the following:

  • Easy to communicate with
  • They understood the high-quality finishes we desired
  • Felt they were more open to the idea of work we could do ourselves to help save money
  • Felt we would be a team working together to build our home, vs. handing over the blueprints and hoping it all works out.
  • We heard from others that they were raised with good family values. After talking with them, we knew we would feel comfortable with them around our children and not worry about any “new words” the kids may learn from the construction workers.
  • Felt they were trustworthy

Now halfway through the construction process, Paul and Tim continue to impress us. The above-mentioned feelings we had all proved to be true and then some. The house we currently live in is right next door. So not only do we get to see the daily progress, but we have the opportunity to witness the type of workers they are. To see two people of their generation to possess a high work ethic as they do seems to be rare these days. They are hard workers with high energy. We are amazed at how quickly the progress of the project is going. We feel they have done a superb job with quality workmanship. We’re very happy with the decision we made to hire them. More importantly, it’s easy to tell that Paul and Tim are also proud of the work they’ve done. To us, that speaks loudly of one’s character and integrity. It’s refreshing to see their excitement for the project. We’ve enjoyed getting to know them better as people and feel we’re not just another job to them. We are very confident Paul and Tim will complete our new home just as we have always envisioned it. We welcome anyone to come to look at the progress of our new home. We highly recommend Paul and Tim to all of our friends and family.”

To Potential BYK Construction Clients, I would like to recommend BYK Construction as exemplary builders who focus on service, quality, and customer satisfaction. I have had a number of homes built over the years, and they are the best I’ve worked with. I’m more than pleased with the home they built for me. I’m full of joy as I think about how they demonstrated true service and care for me as the customer. Specifically, I was extremely impressed with the way they worked diligently to meet my request for a fast-track build schedule. I was moving here from out of state under a time frame, and they worked tirelessly and actually completed the construction two weeks earlier than I had requested. And they did not cut corners on quality or attention to details. Paul and Tim Woodmansee actually made me feel like I was their only customer, inviting me to stop by any time, and always making themselves available. They willingly listened with the patience to my wishes and concerns, and always looked for a way to meet my requests. What I wanted was more important than what they had on the “plans”. They obviously wanted to make me happy. When something needed to be done, or even changed, they always followed through, even making their own suggestions to address things for improving quality and outcomes. And this was done within the existing budget; they didn’t expect “change orders” for addressing customer satisfaction issues. They were constantly asking me. “is there anything else you need”? Again, they were always trying to make me happy; their focus on customer service is unparalleled. After I took possession of my new home, their service orientation didn’t stop. Actually, I was even more observable. They stopped by regularly, ensuring those punch list items were addressed timely and satisfactorily, and always asking me the question “is there anything else you need”? I can tell you this: Paul and Tim never failed to deliver what they promised. This is refreshing in a world where integrity is hard to find. The men actually looked to find issues with my home which needed to be addressed. They actually pointed out punch list items I didn’t see. Instead of ignoring issues, and trying to avoid punch list issues, they actually searched for them. This shows their integrity, their honesty, and purpose: they want to serve their customers. I could list dozens of specific things in my home and the construction process that impressed me, from how they searched to find the specific carpet I liked, to exchanging my range for a different model after I moved in, but it would take forever to list them. I think the best thing I can say summary is this: BYK Construction Demonstrates a commitment to quality, customer service, and honesty. I would highly recommend them. I’m extremely happy and believe you will find them to be men of integrity, and they will see that you have the home you want, not just what they can get you to settle for. They are the best.”

Paul and Tim Woodmansee make an unstoppable duo when it comes to making your dream home come true. Our custom home was completed on schedule and any changes we needed were done quickly and cooperatively.

If they are not familiar with a building technique or product, they make sure to research and contact other professionals in the field to get the best outcome possible for the home buyer. Their systematic approach, open communication and hands-on overview of your home construction, make an otherwise stressful process almost enjoyable. Their professional approach and integrity make them a top choice for anyone thinking about building a home.”

“BYK Construction–Attention Paul Woodmansee My wife, Sharon, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have discovered you and your company. I know we have challenged you in numerous ways to make our custom home a reality. In each case, you have worked with us to find the best solution. Your “can do” approach to each challenge is unsurpassed in your profession. This is the fourth home we have built. We have also extensively remodeled two other “new homes”. Some we designed from the beginning and others we modified existing plans. This project is an extensive modification of one of your existing plans. I’m not certain which is more difficult– new plans or revised plans. The professionalism exhibited by all of your subcontractors also far exceeds the norm. Each person on a crew has been cordial, polite, patient, accommodating and, when needed or desired, they have been creative. It should also be said they are very hard working. You and your customers get their money’s worth from each person’s effort. As their leader, you must also be commended for the guidance you provide. It is obvious they respect you. It may indicate our age, but working with dedicated, “clean cut”, competent younger people is another bonus, for us, and additional testimony to your leadership skills. Your availability is another aspect often overlooked by competitors in your field. As you discovered, I am a “hands-on” customer and rely heavily on being able to discuss anything at any time. You have never failed to respond!! And, your availability has been instrumental in avoiding problems and solving any that may arise. This can often avoid a redo. What more can a customer ask?? Building a new home can easily become stressful. You and your crews have, thankfully, avoided escalating stress beyond that which is self-imposed (not something you can control). For that, we are very grateful! Or marriage should last several more years. We commend you and highly recommend you to anyone wanting the best product they can afford from people who truly care about their customers’ satisfaction. Our best wishes to you, your employees and your family.”

“We welcome this opportunity to applaud BYK Construction as a premier builder. Our association with Paul and Tim Woodmansee began after viewing one of their spec homes. The quality of the construction was evident and the workers on site clearly took pride in their work. We liked the basic plan but wanted to customize it to fit our personal needs. And so our collaboration with BYK began. BYK helped us to settle on a design that suited our specifications and budget. From start to finish we were continually impressed by the attention to every detail and the ease of communication as each phase was completed in a thorough, timely and economical way. The professionalism demonstrated throughout construction was enhanced by the genuine care and concern that our expectations were being met. Their rapport with us extended well beyond the move-in date. We are gratified that BYK stands behind their finished product and remains available if questions arise. The bottom line…. We love our new home and are grateful that BYK built it!”
