- Red House RemodelingWe built our dream home in 1983 and raised our four children in it. Like nine people out of ten in America, we want to live out the rest of our years in our home. Having preemptively purchased long term care insurance to help pay for future in-home medical and support services, we also understood the need to remodel a portion of our multi-level home so that we could live on one floor, when future personal mobility issues would become a factor in our daily living routines. We visited with a number of remodeling contractors at several home shows and chose Red House Remodeling (RHR). Located in Valley Junction in West Des Moines, Iowa, they are a small company of five highly competent individuals that take pride in doing great work and experience a sense of accomplishment from making positive changes in the lives of their customers. Ben, as the contractor, is an honest and direct communicator. He is a systemic thinker, process driven, and highly organized, which mitigated hassles for us and allowed RHR to come in on budget. He was always willing to take the time necessary for us to understand the reasons for any pandemic related delays. COVID-19 has been a huge challenge, as supply chain disruptions have caused certain materials to be out of stock, creating delays in construction. Ben communicated these issues on a timely basis. Stephanie handles administration and marketing for the company. She was prompt and courteous in our requests for information. Jenna, using 3D software, helped us create and visualize the finished project months before the demolition and construction of our home actually began. She paid close attention to our wish list while providing a young professional’s perspective on what it would take to modernize our home. She provided attractive “Plan B” alternatives when COVID related delays forced us to look for different materials to install Chris and Troy are highly skilled construction professionals, that excel in doing quality work in an efficient manner. RHR was a great fit for our project. They understand what is needed to make a home viable for aging in place. We were very comfortable working with them. Finally, for anyone considering home renovation, it’s important to be flexible and willing to tolerate disruption when living in your house during the construction process. We found that the beautiful finished product was well worth the temporary inconvenience. Bill Taber & Susan Taber, Des Moines, Iow
- Des Moines Area RoofingGreat ! Owner Tim came out and did an emergency tarp -- in the rain, as my BR ceiling was leaking. Jan ( office manager ) worked with my insurance until the bid & repairs were enough to give me a great outcome. Their repair guy was professional, friendly and did a good job. I would not hesitate to use them again & to recommend them
- Des Moines Area RoofingThe crew was professional, quick and respectful of the yard. I would recommend them to anyone that is in need of a new roof.
- Element Construction CoTheir performance is absolutely stellar, much better than I’ve ever experienced with anyone else, and that’s by a very long shot. Hire this company. These guys work miracles for some of the best prices around, and this statement stands with no exaggeration whatsoever. Quality work, quality prices. I am honored and quite frankly blessed to have known Jeremy Ferranti. The man virtually saved my life
- Roof IowaRoof Iowa was in and done in one day. A very well coordinated team of hard workers stripped the old shingles, put down new and cleaned up in about 8 hours for both the house and garage. They were courteous and professional. Jon at Roof Iowa also installed new gutters and leaf guards for us as well as took down the old satelite dish. Most importantly he worked within the budget of the insurance estimates for the hail damage. We appreciated that very much
- Midwest Remodel And HandymanHe best contracted I have had in 15 years . He very detailed . There was a problem with existing pipe, he was not working . He told me about it and fix it . He does very good work and he does not try to take short cuts . I will be doing more house improvements and he will first one I will call.
- Scott's Home RenewalThe kitchen remodel was extensive--removing a wall, moving appliances and plumbing, new cabinetry, new flooring, covering a window, replacing siding. He is great to work with. We have an older home and he understands the complexities of this kind of upgrade. When there have been problems after a remodel (small things) he either comes himself to fix it, or sends one of his subcontractors. We found Andy on Angie's list and are very pleased with all of his service
- Scott's Home RenewalThe person in charge of the remodel responded quickly to my calls. He gave me a clear and complete plan for the work and how much it would cost. They were respectful of my space and time by informing me of progress and they cleaned up after they were done. They did beautiful finish work.
- Scott's Home RenewalAndy is a professional and his work reflects that. We have been very satisfied with the work he has done for us and he is our first call for this type of project..
- Scott's Home RenewalBecause we have had some ordering problems with our kitchen cabinets Andy has been very patient with all the delays. He never get's frustrated is always patient and helps us to relax about the remodel. This young man is more then expected.

We are a Certified Owens Corning contractor and Certified GAF contractor. Our team is train..Recent Review:The team sent did a great job! Supplies were delivered when they said they would be and the team was here to start the job when they said they would be here. With a threat of rain, they made sure when they stopped for the night that nothing would get wet that shouldn't and they worked late to ensure any potential rain did not cause any damage. When they removed the old chimney they found the wood was rotted, and replaced it without question. It took them 3 days to complete the job, but they cleaned up as they worked each day and made sure they cleaned up before they left daily. We have found no nails or trash from the job and the house and garage look great. They also took special care of two Clematis plants I have by the garage - and as they were gifts from my sons - it is greatly appreciated. We were impressed with the professionalism, and the work ethic the team showed as well as the quality of completionSharon L.

For example: I don't hire out my gutter work, we do it the right way, we handle everything including the rotted ..Recent Review:The workers were competent, skilled, respectful and kind, and the remodeling project was completed in a professional manner. On the surface, it sounds simple to move appliances from the basement to a first floor location, but it required permits, planning, and careful execution. When looking into the ventilation for the dryer, the workers discovered that work completed years ago by another contractor was done improperly. Bathroom vents were not vented to the outside and were instead vented directly into the space above the ceiling. They addressed this problem and other complications that arose with honesty, and Judd Penny was transparent about the status of the project throughout the project life cycle. If I needed remodeling completed - big or small projects - I would not hesitate to again work with Mid States Carpenters and Judd Penny. I was thrilled with the results and so were my elderly parentsSuellen C.

We contacted him in March to start the process and get quotes for a new roof. He worked with us for a couple months to show us different color options and even tried to help us get a blue shingle we liked from the Timberline line of shingles that was only available from the East Coast market but we're in the Midwest. Once we finally decided, he honored the quote he'd given us and got us on his schedule. Four days before the actual work he contacted us with the date and the crew was there promptly that morning. We suspected we had some bad boards along the edges underneath from leaks behind the gutters. When the crew found out how bad some of the boards really were, Josh was there to let us know the update and worked with us on the additional cost. They replaced a lot of boards which were not quality for a roof. It was evident the roof job done before we bought the house 18 years prior was only done with low cost in mind and not quality. Josh was all about doing it right. The crew was pleasant and cleaned up the yard and surroundings very well. With the exception of our very nice new roof, you could never tell they'd been there. Our new gutters were done a week later. That was with a subcontracted crew but Josh made sure he was out after they finished to look it over. He wanted to be sure we were happy as well with them before he sent the final bill. Our bill had a small mix-up because we had talked about gutter guards at one point but decided against them. Emily was quick to get the information updated and a correct invoice to us. They have an option for paying online which was secure, quick and easy. We love our new roof and gutters and would highly recommend Roof IowaM W.
