Featured below are numerous testimonials from our satisfied customers.

Chris [One of our guys],

Wow! You made a big change in stuff yesterday. We were very impressed by the clean up! Thank you!

If you wouldn’t mind putting the old vanities, medicine cabinets and counter tops in the garage; I promised them to a cousin who is fixing up a club house at Lake Shelbyville.

Thanks again,

Dear Ron,

We just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did remodeling our kitchen. We are so thrilled with the look and function of our new kitchen. You and your crew really went the extra mile to make sure that we were satisfied with every step of the project. We absolutely love our cabinets by Custom Wood Creations. All the subcontractors you had us work with on this project were excellent. You made the experience of remodeling so pleasant. You and your crew were so professional. We would highly recommend you to anyone considering a remodeling project.

Sincerely yours,
Meg and Tom B.

Thanks for a good job. We appreciate your concern for our safety and getting a crew here so promptly.

I was happy with the guys and their work ethic.

I talked with Art and he thought the price was fair, but reminded me that the light wells need to be put back up.

We'll let you know when we're finished so that can be done.

Thanks again,

Thanks for a great job on our theatre room addition. The end product really exceeded all of our expectations. Chris and Lyle were very courteous and professional and listened to any and all of our concerns. From start to finish the work area was kept neat and clean. I am a shift worker and the crew was very considerate of my schedule.

You have our thanks and anyone that needs a professional remodel job done, we highly recommend Bridell Remodeling, Inc.

I'm sending a picture of the finished bathtub/shower. I really, really like it.

It took me a while to get the shower curtain and rings, then it took me even longer to get a soap/shampoo holder. I brought 2 different caddys home from Wal-Mart that wouldn't sit level and had to return them. I called around town and no one had anything that would work. So I went back to the Signature Hardware catalog and found a holder that clamps around the water pipe and it works! I put it right above the connection of the two pieces of pipe at chest level. And I have a shower!

I'm so glad I found you at the Home Show. You are truly a gentleman and your workers were clean, efficient, and friendly. Thanks so much for a job well done.

Dear Ron,

I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did on my basement bathroom. It looks great! All of your workers were very professional to deal with and I was very pleased with the end result.

In about a year we are planning to put in a whole new kitchen and I will definitely be calling you for the job.

Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year.

Now that we have been able to enjoy it for a few months, I just wanted to write to tell you how thrilled we are with our finished basement! When we made the decision to finish the basement this past summer, we sought bids from four contractors. From our very first meeting with you, we realized the pride that you take in your work, and your patience and easy-going personality won us over. Although you were willing to do whatever we wanted, you suggested several changes to our plans that we would not have thought possible. We thank you for always being available to address any of our questions or concerns, and flexible enough to make changes "on the fly". It was refreshing to us that you called or stopped by on a regular basis to make sure that we were pleased with the progress. The folks who work for you are not only very skilled and meticulous with their work, but also very friendly.

Ever since the project was completed, we spend the majority of our time downstairs. In fact, we no longer call it "the basement", as it has truly become our "family room". Our daughter, who hated to spend any time in the dark, cold basement, now loves to have friends over to play and watch movies downstairs. As is custom in our family, we recently hosted Thanksgiving dinner for my family. We intentionally kept the project a secret so that we could surprise everyone with all the extra room this year, and they could not believe how beautiful the area turned out. It is so much fun to watch the faces of our family and friends as they reach the bottom of the stairs and get their first look at your work. Of course, they are immediately drawn to the wet bar, which turned out better than we ever imagined. I can't wait to buy my pool table!

Thank you very much for the wonderful addition to our home. We will definitely call you for any future projects, and highly recommend Briddell Construction to anyone planning a remodeling or construction project.

Our time spent working with Briddell Construction was very pleasant. Ron and his team of workers were very professional and friendly. Any issues that arose were quickly dealt with and corrected. We were consulted often as to how happy we were with the progress and if there were any changes we would like made. In the end, our basement turned out beautifully!

Thanks for all of your hard work.

The Barriers

Dear Ron,

Thank you, thank you, thank you for getting the downspouts put in before all the rain came this past weekend. Without the downspouts we would still be using the wet vac to clean up the water. Hope you enjoyed your Father's Day as much as we enjoyed our weekend.

Dear Ron,

Just a note to let you know how much we are enjoying our "new" shower. All the worksmanship the guys did is just great! I have re-wallpapered, cleaned, etc. the bathroom. Looks like a different room.

Dear Ron and Crew,

We want to thank Briddell Construction, Inc. for a job well done. The shower addition makes our home feel much more cozy and visitor friendly.

We appreciate the fast and clean work.

To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to pass accolades onto Mr. Ron Briddell for the outstanding job he did on finishing our basement. My wife and I bought our first home and we wanted someone to finish our basement, which consisted of a bedroom, hallway, and redesign of the bathroom. We boxed Ron into a corner by giving him only 4 weeks to accomplish the project so as to allow us a door-to-door move.

Needless to say, Ron and his crew finished ahead and the project turned out perfect. My wife and I could not have been more pleased with the outcome. Everything was finished to our specifications and the best part of all we didn't have to put up with any of the noise or mess.

We took a gamble and it paid off big time. Our friends who had their basement finished referred Ron to us; we did most of the negotiations and correspondence long distance. We have heard the horror stories about hiring contractors and paying them before the job was complete, but as expected we did not need to worry. Ron quickly earned our respect and never let us down from start to finish.

I whole-heartedly give my ringing endorsement to Ron Briddell for any future construction projects. If there are any questions or concerns please contact me via phone [omitted] or email at [omitted].

To Whom It May Concern:

I wanted to take the time to share with you my experience with Ron Briddell owner of the Briddell Construction Company. My husband and I initially hired Briddell Construction to finish approximately 1000 square feet in our basement. Within days of our request for information, Ron personally called and set up a time to meet with us in our home. Since neither my husband nor I really speak the "construction language," Ron patiently explained to us what would need to be done to obtain our desired results. Within 48 hours of this meeting Ron stopped by our house (again at our convenience) with a bid and contract. To ensure satisfaction by all parties, Ron does not ask for 100% of payment up front, but instead requests payment at the completion of different stages of the job. Ron provided us with a phone number to call with any questions or concerns.

Ron provided us with an approximate timeline when we signed the contract. In reality, he was able to start the job sooner than promised! Prior to starting work, the workers took care to protect any flooring they would have to cross on the way to the basement. After the framework for the walls was completed, I called Ron to discuss the size of a room. Ron promptly returned my phone call and was happy to accommodate my request to move a wall and enlarge the room. Along the way I called Ron several times to clarify items we wanted completed. In all cases, he was timely in his response , very pleasant on the phone, and was able to make the changes we requested.

During the time the Briddell Construction Company was working on our basement, we suffered water damage in an upstairs bedroom. Once again I called Ron, who had one of his workers inspect the inside damage while he personally inspected the outside of the house to determine the cause of the damage. Within 24 hours we had a bid for the job, which I was then able to forward onto the insurance company. The work was completed prior to the end of our remodeling.

I was very impressed by the quality of work done by all the professionals associated with Briddell Construction. I have already had the electrician do a side job for me, am hoping to hire the painters for an upcoming job, and kept the carpet layers information for future reference.

The job was not done until we were completely satisfied. Ron itemized the cost of the different tasks and credited by account when items cost less than he had expected. I would highly recommend the Briddell Construction Company for any of your remodeling needs. They will be my first choice for any work we need done in the future.

To Whom It May Concern,

We recently contracted with Ron Briddell to finish our basement in our new home. We are thrilled with the outcome and have recommended Ron and his company to all our friends and neighbors. We originally contracted with another construction company and the experience with them was a nightmare. We called Ron and he gave us a great price and understood that since we were so delayed with the project, we were very anxious to have it done. He was great about fitting us into his busy schedule. We are very happy with the results.

Ron's crew and subcontractors were very professional, courteous, and clean. They would always call before they showed up, and showed up when they said they would. We were told that remodeling is very messy, but we did not find it too bad. The crews always cleaned up after themselves and kept the mess to a minimum. Their worksmanship was fantastic. The framers, electrician, drywaller, and painters were great. We were happy with their attention to detail. Overall the quality of the work was excellent and the basement is beautiful. It is a wonderful addition to our home. We would highly recommend Ron Briddell construction to everyone.

Thank you,
Karen S.

TO: Whom It May Concern
RE: Home remodeling project

We recently commissioned Briddell Construction Inc. to complete a "wall to wall" remodeling project in our home. Our project entailed a new kitchen, new flooring, a redesign of the floor plan and new doors and trim throughout the upper portion of our home. Ron outlined a timetable for the completion of the project at the outset of the planning process which was extremely important to us, since we were vacating our home during the project.

Ron's recommendation that we vacate the home during the project was good advice considering the "wall to wall" nature of the improvements. It would have been extremely difficult for us and the workers had we been in their midst while the work was being done.

Ron's subcontractors were outstanding. We had plastering work, electrical work and ductwork completed by subcontractors that Ron coordinated while Ron completed the plumbing work himself and also completed the installation of the cabinets and doors and trim himself.

The subcontractors were all prompt and polite and, perhaps most importantly, terrific at their work. In addition, Ron coordinated the timing of the installation of the flooring. The timing of the various aspects of this job was critical for us to be able to move back in our home at the agreed upon time. Everyone had to show up at their scheduled time to do their work so the project could proceed quickly and on schedule and Ron made sure it happened as he had promised it would.

During the project, I called Ron regularly with a variety of questions relating to the project. He was generally responsive to my questions and showed sensitivity to the fact that we were out of our home and wanted to return as quickly as possible.

Dear Ron,

We want to thank you for the fantastic job your company performed on our home. The finished basement looks wonderful and the change is absolutely dramatic. Once dark and dreary, it is now bright, warm, and cozy. We've been receiving glowing compliments from our family and friends. We are totally delighted!

The quality of building materials was outstanding. Your recommendations were excellent and right on the mark. It was those little extra touches that made the finished product so unique. The crew was fabulous. They were professional, highly skilled, courteous, accommodating, and very patient. We enjoyed working with them.

We recommend Briddell Construction highly and will definitely hire your company for any future remodeling project. We are very pleased.

Thank you!

Ron (& all who helped)

We are very pleased with our new bathroom. You came highly recommended to us by Bill Courtney from Heli Tech.

Ron was very helpful, listening to our ideas, making suggestions, then telling us the best places to shop for what we needed.

We had several estimates. Briddell Construction was right in line.

All the workers were neat in appearance, polite and did their job well. They even vacuumed at the end of the day.

The most impressive factor to us was that they came when they said they would. This was a "biggie" with us since many things hinged on the timing of this project.

We know we will have Ron do any future projects, and will definitely recommend him to others.
