Had a great experience with Steve from Wilderness Construction. Had a somewhat complicated project with 3 other companies involved. Steve was always accommodating to work with the others and created a strong sense of trust that he would figure out how to get it all done. We love the end product and would definitely use Wilderness Construction again.

’We could not be happier with the end result of our exterior home remodel project.  Zach was friendly and knowledgeable at our initial meeting, and quickly got us a quote for the scope of work.  When we decided that we really wanted fiberglass windows (over vinyl), he was able to adjust the quote quickly to give us an update on cost.  He was honest with the timeframe of when each step of the process would take place based on manufacturing timelines. And when we were thrown some curveballs in terms of existing house condition/construction, he shifted the focus to make sure that the house was ready for the next step in the process. Due to situations beyond anyone's control, the overall job took a bit longer than any of us expected. But Zach and the team at Wilderness always worked to ensure that we were not inconvenienced more than was absolutely necessary (i.e. dumpster in the driveway during demo).  Our house looks amazing, the combination of Hardie Board siding and Pella Fiberglass windows took our 1960's colonial from dated to modern. I recommend Wilderness for anyone interested in updating the look of their home.”

“Me and my company have partnered up with Wilderness Construction on several projects to date. The thing we love most about Wilderness is the people. Employees and clients! It is a stress free, enjoyable, and comfortable environment that allows everyone involved to do their thing at the highest professional level. I imagine that they attract the best types of clienteles because of who wilderness is at their core, which is a friendly, personable, open and honest company. I will always recommend them to anyone in the Ann Arbor area.”

“Wilderness Construction is simply the best and most professional construction company I have ever used. Ours was a somewhat complicated kitchen remodeling project that required adding new ductwork with complicated duct routing thru the roof so we could add a new venting cooktop hood. They kept every commitment they made to the letter, showed up exactly when they promised, and the final result was superb. Every night they left our home immaculately clean. Our "plan A" didn't work because of unanticipated beams blocking our original duct route, and they came up with an even better plan and throughout the project every decision they had to make was intelligent and improved the final result. They are one of the few construction companies I have ever used that I learned to fully trust having them do work even when I wasn't home as I ended up fully knowing that they would make great decisions.”

“After final walk through. Everything was great. The roof looks great, the team was professional and caring to protecting my house, plus the cleanup was excellent. Will recommend and use in the future.”

“Honest, hardworking, trustworthy, and tidy crew. The bid visit and proposal with Steve was pleasant and straight forward with fair pricing. The project at my house had one skilled carpenter doing most of the work - he kept me updated on a daily basis and made significant progress each workday. I requested one minor extra task in the middle of the project that the team handled with ease. I would recommend this company for your project.”

“Both my husband and I were thrilled to have worked with Wilderness Construction to help with our renovation project! They are knowledgeable, fast, communicative and reliable. We have a 1930's home with a lot of character and Jason and Mark came up with a plan that helped us to maintain the character of our home while widening the opening between the kitchen and our living room. It was a complicated process and Mark executed the project beautifully. We couldn't be happier with the results and will be recommending Wilderness Construction to friends and family in the future!”

“We contacted Wilderness Construction Inc to inquire about a bath tub project. We wanted to have a walk-in shower for my ageing Mother. Lance came to my mother’s home to discuss options that would help her stay safe. He was very courteous and respectful. I would highly recommend this company to others wishing to keep their senior parents with medical disabilities safe at home. Lance went to the office to research all the possibilities for her installation.”

“Our roof and 7 skylights were in desperate need of replacement. We went with Wilderness because they were very thorough in their assessment and fair in their pricing. Dan explained each step of the process and when the work was done, did a quality and clean up inspection on everything. We couldn't be happier with the results! Thanks to everyone on the team. What a hard-working group of professionals!”

“Wilderness Construction has worked with me on several projects on my Old West Side Ann Arbor home -- from mid-size ones like replacing a deck and remodeling my bathroom, to smaller such as tuck pointing a chimney, installing new basement windows and other repairs.  Every job they have done over 7 years I have worked with them has been performed well and on time -- with great results!  Working with Lance Rowe has been a joy; I highly recommend Wilderness Construction for jobs large and small!”
