Testimonials

Building our house with Oran and Marilyn Struecker from Construction Professionals was a surprisingly wonderful experience. Kathy and I had heard many horror stories about building your own home and we even had our own previous nightmares that made us very skeptical in the process. Oran and Marilyn were with us during the planning stages, the developmental and architectural phases and most importantly were on the jobsite nearly every day making sure things were done right.

When building a custom home, there are so many variables and options available that it can be quite overwhelming. Oran and Marilyn worked extensively with our architect in getting everything just how we wanted it. They offered their ideas and expertise in making some very important changes to our home while still being mindful of our budget and most importantly always had our best interest at heart. Oran made an extensive change to our entryway with a spiral staircase going up and downstairs and it greatly improved the appeal of an already outstanding home.

We are very pleased with our home and Oran and Marilyn exceeded our expectations as builders. Oran and his son Derek did an outstanding job and have put together a well built structure with incredible taste and elegance. We would highly recommend Construction Professionals to anyone considering remodeling or building their dream home – they can certainly helped turn our dreams into a reality!

We are very pleased to have worked with you on our project.  The quality of work was no less than what was expected.  Another impressive point of your company is how you stand behind your work.  Our questions and concerns were always addressed no matter how big or small, even after completion with utmost professionalism, which is very befitting of your name.  Please feel free to use our names and experience to further your success in the future.

I thought I’d just drop a line to tell you how pleased I’ve been working with the two of you in the construction of my home.  It was a real pleasure dealing with people that I felt very comfortable with in the planning as well as the construction phase of putting this project together.  By the time we were through, I felt as though I had a couple of friends building this house.  I am very impressed with the integrity and professionalism that you convey from the very start.  Again, thank you, and if I can be of any help with referrals, feel free to use my name.

It has been almost two months since the completion of our barn renovation project. Each visit to our property brings a greater appreciation for your accomplishment of this project. Amy and I have said on several occasions…”we are grateful our paths crossed at this juncture in our lives”.

Our family has transitioned easily into the comforts the barn brings. As we sit here on this December morning enjoying the beauty of the fireplace, the warmth of the radiant floor system, and a cup of coffee, we continue to marvel the craftsmanship and vision delivered to this project. Perhaps more amazing…this was all accomplished without any architectural drawing.

We could write several pages about the individual aspects we enjoy or appreciate about your craftsmanship and the barn; the point is that it has all exceeded our expectations. From the hand crafted shutters, to the loft rails, the kitchen cabinetry, and the barn structural beams, each feature speaks of integrity and compliments each another.

Oran, Marilyn and Derek, the finished product is one each homeowner lives with forever. Equally important as a customer, was the honesty and integrity we experienced with Construction Professionals. It has been a great pleasure to partner with you in this venture and at the same time develop a new friendship. We can’t thank you enough for making our dreams a reality

We are pleased with the way both of you worked with us on our kitchen remodel.  Several people who have been here said the work was completed so they can’t believe there used to be a wall between the kitchen and dining room.
-- Bill, Des Moines
Thank you for remodeling job you did on our kitchen.  We appreciate the time you took and attention to details to design the kitchen we envisioned.  Also, your timely attention to our concerns and details during this construction phase is reflective in the quality of the completed work.

We had been considering a kitchen remodel for a while and took our time doing research on the entire process and making sure we had the right contractor for this huge and expensive undertaking. Construction Professionals met and exceeded our expectations. We consider ourselves lucky to have had the privilege to work with Oran, Derek and Marilyn Struecker of Construction Professionals.

From the very first meeting they were helpful in determining the goals we wanted to achieve and the budget we had in mind. They offered suggestions and insight into what worked and what didn’t. Before a single cabinet was removed the kitchen design was changed again and again and they were patient as we worked through all the details.

During construction, they were on time every day and kept us updated of any change in the schedule. They were also considerate of our schedule and the fact that we were living in our home during this process. They made every effort to make it the best experience during the messiest and noisiest parts of the project.

The result is a beautiful kitchen that functions perfectly for our family and our needs. We asked ourselves again and again why we didn’t do it sooner because it was such a positive experience. As we look to make future updates and transformations to our home we will use Construction Professionals for all our projects. We highly recommend them for their expertise, their helpfulness and their integrity.

Our remodeled kitchen became the hub of our home. Construction Professionals far exceeded  our expectations for creativity and craftsmanship.
-- Janet, Des Moines
We are very pleased to have Construction Professionals do our remodeling for us. Oran & Marilyn are great people to work with, they listened to our wants and our concerns. Marilyn kept us informed as what was happening or we could always get in touch with her. Oran and Derek worked great together as a team. Both Marilyn & Oran took the time to meet after hours at Swan Creek, to look at the kitchen cabinets, which we are very pleased with. Everyone involved with the project was outstanding. Marilyn and Oran create a real friendship that just doesn't stop at the end of the project. We were ready to move to Des Moines, but with our wonderful, elegant kitchen/dinning room, we are very much content to staying at Lake Panorama.
-- Paul, Panora
Oran and Marilyn made remodeling our kitchen an orderly, organized process.  They led us to Swan Creek cabinets and finished everything with a minimum of disruption and great attention to detail.  We love our new kitchen!

I'll be happy to write something up.  You're wonderful.

It was comforting to work with Marilyn, Orin and Derek, with Construction Professionals. They are wonderful people who are hard working, honest, as well as creative. Their sense of style and attention to detail was reassuring. It was as if they could read our minds during the planning and construction of our project. We hope to work with them in the future.

Construction Professionals were wonderful to work with from beginning to end of our project. We had them install some windows and doors several years ago and were very pleased. When we purchased our current house, we called them on short notice to bid and give us ideas on installing new stone on an existing fireplace and adding a TV center. They were there the next day, helped us with ideas, and were starting work shortly after. The final product is even better than we imagined it was going to be. We are extremely picky about details and they were very patient and accommodating with us. We felt comfortable with them coming and going in our house while they worked. They take care of your house during construction like you would yourself. Working with Oran, Marilyn, and Derek is refreshing - they are professional but yet very family oriented and really care about providing a quality product. We would highly recommend Construction Professionals, we have found their values, quality of work, and assistance in guiding you through the entire renovation process are outstanding and second to none.

Working with Construction Professionals to build our addition was a rewarding experience.  They listened to our initial ideas and came up with a plan that was pleasing.  The quality of the workmanship far exceeded our expectations.  We look forward to continuing our working relationship with Construction Professionals in the future.

Working with Construction Professionals was a pleasure from our very first meeting.  We had a rough plan laid out that would allow us to add a 3 seasons room and remodel part of the main level of our house to create another bedroom and an office.  After our initial meeting with Marilyn and Oran, we revised our plan with their input.  We met again and revised the plan yet another time to finally end up with our final project.  They were very patient with us and offered ideas as we often revised our plan.  I doubt other contractors would have stood beside us during this crazy time.   We cannot say enough about the respect we have for Construction Professionals.  They are a very honest family business. The estimates were accurate and we did not come across any hidden costs or surprises along the way.  During the construction process, we changed our minds on a few items and Marilyn always provided us with an updated estimate in a timely manner.  Oran and Derek hire only the best subcontractors.  We were very pleased with the work and professionalism of everyone that was here.  Oran and Derek were always very respectful of our family, our house and our neighbors.  Each day, prior to them leaving, the job site was thoroughly cleaned.  We never felt like we had to spend time cleaning when they were through.  Oran and Derek were also very responsive and happy to address anything that we may point out to them.  We were completely comfortable having them at our house each day, even when we were not around.  They are very honest and trustworthy.  If they felt they would not be able to do something in a quality manner, they would tell you and not do it or offer alternatives.  Finally, the quality and craftsmanship of the work they do is EXCELLENT!  We have had numerous compliments on the job they did and we absolutely love it.  We have no reservations when it comes to providing a referral.  In fact, we've passed their names on several times already.  We are looking forward to working with Construction Professionals again on another remodeling project or two!!
