A few reviews for this pro...


Steve C.

Excellent experience with Brian and his team. He did exactly what he said he would do, on time and on budget. He works in a 3 man crew. All 3 are very respectable people and great at what they do. They even allowed my 9 year old son to hang out (when appropriate) to see what's going on. Very personable yet professional crew. Usually worked 7:00am - 4:30 M - F. Only worked Saturdays when subs were required and at our approval. My basement is about 1500 total square feet. Lotz and team put in a great bathroom (previously roughed-in) with a shower, granite vanity, toilet and plenty of general room and space. Basement also has a bedroom, huge recreation room and plenty of storage. Storage was finished with concrete flooring. Carpeting and drywall throughout. Zoned heating/cooling. Subcontractors were always also on time, respectful and professional (high quality). Subs included plumbing, electrical, drywall mud and tape, and carpeting. The rest was done by Brian's crew. Entire job took 6 weeks just as Brian quoted. Field changes on the fly were not a problem and quotes were reasonable. I'm very happy with the final product and would certainly recommend and use them again! In fact, thinking of re-doing our entire master bath at some point in the future. I won't even think about calling anyone but Brian (Lotz Custom Carpentry). Totally worth it. Brian's a great guy to boot.

It is looking so awesome .. Not totally completed yet, ( almost), But have used Lotz for several projects on this home as well as our past home. They do excellent work , Never get lazy and take the easy way out. All work is done or over seen by the boss man himself. If your looking for quality and not looking to redo in a few years, Then i highly recommend Lotz Custom Carpentry . He works with you to get what you want and also can suggest different idea's to better fit your needs and appeal. They are a great bunch of men to work with. They go above and beyond to get the project looking like a million bucks :) You know the old saying , you get what you pay for.. Put your mind at ease , and know the job is done right the first time. Very hard working young men. ( you don't see to much of that these days) Kudos

Description of Work
Took out front stairs and walkway.. Rebuilt a paver walkway that is ramped right up to the front door. Added two feet to the front porch and added pavers, Built stone walls all the way up the ramp and along the front porch . The ramp is 7 feet wide :) Added duel stone pillars on the bottom of the ramp on each side. Added three top light post and lighting to each pillar.

They are excellent. They are a little pricey but it is definitely worth the price. With the pricing, he will give you different options on materials and explain the differences in the materials as well. They are very reliable and everything is done right. Brian, the owner, really works with you to get what you want.

Description of Work
They do all of our remodeling around our house. They do everything for us. They have put in new bathrooms, drywall, custom built cabinets, deck work. They are coming back to do a new walkway. He did remodeling on our kitchen in our old home.

We were looking for a carpenter to build and install custom cabinets and bookshelves in our family room on both sides of our fireplace. I found Lotz Custom Carpentry on Angie's List and contacted Brian for an estimate. We had gotten a few other estimates in the past and hadn't been happy with the designs and/or price. Brian was very easy to work with -- he came to our house and we explained our vision, then he took measurements and came up with a design and price, which we were very happy with. He incorporated everything we asked for, in addition to his own ideas on how to make it better. We are THRILLED with the end result. The built-ins look amazing, and I was really impressed with the quality of his work and his attention to detail. We will absolutely work with Brian again.

Brian and Ryan gutted and remodeled my bathroom in about a week in a half from start to finish.. They did a amazing job. They are very hard working and honest.. The work they do is top quality . They do it right the first time.. If you are looking for a slap together shady job.. Then don't call them .. Call any Bozo and pay him a couple hundred dollars... LOTZ does top notch work.. I plan on hiring him again in a few weeks when i move to do the more complicated projects... If you want perfection call Brian you won't be disappointed....
