We have used John McCarter Construction previously for work on our house, so when we needed additional work to our exterior we came back to them because they do great work, they’re affordable, and they’re very respective of our time and scheduling. This project turned out just as we had planned and everything looks great!

John McCarter Construction installed three entry doors and one sliding glass patio door (2016) in a house that I recently purchased. Don't hire these guys unless you want every door installed incorrectly!!! Patio sliding glass door had 1/4" gap under the full door so every time it rained, water leaked into the basement damaging the drywall and rotting out the subfloor along with the joists. They did not put caulk down before installing the door. They put OSI foam, then flashing on top of the foam then installed the door on top of the flashing thinking the foam would expand and seal the bottom of the door. One entry door was hung on an angle and was touching on the bottom seal while the top had a 1/2 gap between the door and seal. The other two doors, the striker plates were install incorrectly and the doors were not against the door seals. So every time it rained, water was coming in these doors also and rotten out the subfloor and door frames. They install windows and did not remove a down spout gutter to caulk the flashing. So they left one window with a 3/4" gap along the whole side. If the gutter backed up, water would run down the outside of the down spout into the gap between the flashing and siding getting water into the house. It's like dumb and dumber construction.... Bruce Ellis is totally useless and full of excuses of why this was not their fault. A good company stands behind their work and fixes any issues they created.... not this company...

I asked McCarter to remove the window frame made of cement since they did the siding. I did not want to trust anyone else for this work since it can be messed up easily. McCarter people came at the mutually agreed time and removed the frame. Then the glass was replaced by Henderson Glass. McCarter people came back later and put the frame and all the metal cladding back up again. No supervision was required. As usual, they did an excellent job.

Outstanding! There are a few good pole barn builders in the market but, virtually none of them are interested in pole barn repairs, especially in the case of small jobs. John McCarter Construction, though, sent two knowledgeable and personal young men to do the job which made good business sense because I've already recommended them to others in the South Lyon area. Small jobs now = larger jobs later. Also, Amber is really great to work with.

Very happy with the work. They came out the day I decide to proceed with the project. The service worker Justin was great to work with. He came out knew what he needed to do, and answered all my questions. He was very polite and worked the entire time he was out a my home. I would definitely use them again for other projects.

It was great working with John McCarter construction. I got their number after talking to my neighbor. I called them and they got back to be immediately to give me a ball park price and detail explanation on how they will bill me. Of course until they come and see exactly what's needed to be done will they have the exact price but they gave me all detail just so I know the labor and part cost needed. And how they bill about the hours of service. But gave me an idea how long it would take. So I would be comfortable with the price. After I agreed they got back to me to schedule a date and within few days everything was done. What I really liked; They said they will call me within couple days to schedule. And they did exactly that. when they called we scheduled a day and they said they will call again the day before. Again they did exactly what they said. The day before work they called to remind me and give me a window. I don't need to be there but their guy will be there to do the work will call me on that day before he comes. Again the guy calls me and let's me know he is on his way, since this work is outside I don't need to be there. He comes does his work and I come home everything looks good. I get the bill couple days later. It was so simple and clean and precise. I can't believe they did everything like they said... Is so hard to find any contractor to do what they tell you. I have met few luckily and I have met many that was very frustrating and I'm sure many people who reads review knows exactly what I'm talking about. Bottom line price was very fair. They did exactly what they told me. No surprises, very up front about the possibility cost. And they delivered what they told me. There communication is just amazing. You can bet I will be using them for all future work that I needed and they offer.
