The Burton's Story

In June of 2007 we contacted Maple Hill builders, among others, in order to get an initial bid on a home we wanted built in Lake Leelanau. We were very pleased with the bid that Steve and Drew made us because of it's completeness, easy to understand breakdown, and options included. We felt that there would be no surprises in prices and materials using their company and that turned out to be true.

The project began in July and was completed by the end of December. I had worked on the design with the help of Robert Johnson, LLC, and had a good grasp of materials I wanted used, and the Schaubs were very compliant with my desires and helped me to get the look and layout that I wanted. The subs they used were experienced and professional and they worked closely with us to achieve our wants as well as our needs.

There are always times when the desired outcome is not what is on the drawing, and whenever that happened Steve and Drew always looked at it from my point of view and never lost their composure. For example, our drawings happened to show specs for carpeted stairs and I wanted wooden stairs. So even though the base steps were already installed, they didn't try to talk me out of my desire, they came up with a good plan for maple risers and the stairs turned out to be, in my opinion, really lovely and easy to clean as well. I was able to work with them and feel included as a part of the team in material and finish choices, and I was always pleased and impressed with the caliber of the work and the good advice I was given in regard to finishes, door and window choices and so on.

By the middle of December our beautiful home was finished and we were able to spend Christmas vacation in our new house. But the best results can go astray and in January we had a problem in the thermostat of our new furnace that literally baked our house, while we were not yet living there to realize what was happening. By the time it was discovered about $30,000.00+ worth of damage had been done. Again, Steve and Drew and their subs stepped up to the plate and made it right. There was no arguing over the claim or any kind of denial, they got in there and fixed it as good as new (which it still was). This included replacing the hardwood floor, countertops throughout the house, cracked tiles, doors, patching drywall, moving and resetting cupboards and cabinets, and probably more repairs as well. Today you would never know it had happened.

I will always be happy to share my experience with Maple Hill Builders because it was exciting and enjoyable, and we ended up with the home of our dreams. Thank you very much Steve, Drew, and all the Maple Hill crew!

"If you say something about your company, it's a claim. But if someone else says something about your company, it's a fact!"

We've gathered some of our client and supplier testimonials we've received over the years. We wanted to share their words with you.

"Just a note of THANKS for the wonderful remodeling project you just completed on our condo. Your advice, counsel and ideas as well as your ongoing and timely communication, including pictures, throughout the construction period were much appreciated. This was especially important as we are "down state" so it's not easy to personally monitor the project. We truly appreciated your attention to detail and several guests have commented on the quality of the workmanship.

I have and will continue to recommend Maple Hill Builders to friends and other owners within the resort."

Milbourn Project by Maple Hill Builders"The fall of 2008, we contacted Maple Hill Builders to handle our remodel project. With our ideas in mind and much collaboration, Maple Hill Builders delivered a comforting quote. The Long distance was a challenge; however e-mails, faxes and pictures arrived weekly, re-assuring us that our project was in good hands. Anticipation grew as we planned our trip north, looking forward to enjoying our newly remodeled home. Maple Hill Builders not only delivered quality, they incorporated our visions with careful thought and craftsmanship. We always felt included, talking with each tradesmen involved with our project. The communication was excellent, along with a straight forward approach, our decision making was easier. Thanks again, Steve and Drew! A highly recommendable company!!!!"

Steve and Drew Schaub do nothing but quality work no matter what the task. Combined with their conscientious approach to even the smallest of challenges, they have the expertise and skills to perform.

"Hi, my name is Jeff Salonen. I do kitchen design and sales at Creative Kitchens in Traverse City. I've worked with Maple Hill Builders for several years now, and I get excited with each opportunity to work with them. They are professional with their voices and actions and they take pride in all the work they do, large or small. Every client that comes in to see me is very informed and knows exactly what is happening with their project. That tells me they keep communication lines open, informing clients and sub-contractors of changes, which results in a job running smoothly and efficiently with customers who are 100% satisfied. As most people know "A good house starts with a well built foundation." The foundation begins when you make that first call to Maple Hill Builders."

Thank you,
