Description

Hello, my name is Al Birkenmeier, I am president of Birkenmeier and Sons, Inc.. So grateful for Angie's List and the Super Service Award 7 years in a row. I started my custom building and remodeling company in 1980 after 9 years in the commercial construction industry working with companies like McCarthy Bros., Hercules and Tarlton. I have pursued my love of providing the highest quality of construction while working hard at keeping my overhead down to keep it as affordable as possible. The proof is always in what my past has to offer so please don't hesitate to contact my past clients through a client reference list I would be happy to share with you as 99.9% are not Angie's List Members. Our quality of work and service is second to none so please let us offer you a no cost estimate and opinion for your next custom home or remodeling project. Thank you much, Al Birkenmeier...

Sometimes I don't have time to take on small jobs but when it comes to a previous client I always make an exception. We actually did an addition for this client back 11 years ago and had a great experience then. So when this client needed help to replace some rotten wood on top of the columns holding up his front porch covering I told him I would help him with that when I caught a break in my sche...

Al Birkenmeier and his team were all very professional and a pleasure to work with. After collecting multiple bids for the project, we felt Al was the most thorough and took the time to really talk us through what was needed and what to expect. His work was of high quality and was extremely reasonable in costs. Some of the work uncovered pre-existing issues that needed attention, and Al took care ...

Was a pleasure helping this client open up their Kitchen to a connecting hearth like room where thier small children play. It was a bearing wall so we had to jack up the second floor and install an engineered beam for support which is a very small job for us but something we can slip in between our bigger jobs and happy to do it. This was one of those two day jobs that took 3 weeks as when we open...

Al is the best contractor in St. Louis. Al built our extension in 2016 and the result was outstanding. So when we decided to remodel our kitchen and bathrooms, we thought of him first. Once again, the result exceeded our expectations. The project was completed on time, on budget, and with meticulous attention to detail. The best part: each room of our mid-century house features custom trim that is...

Al rebuilt my porch during the pandemic. All went great. There was a window to be replaced that didn't come in before the work was completed. Al called me when it came in to schedule installation. It was now during the height of the pandemic. I was concerned about keeping an older parent safe so asked Al to wait to install the window. He was very agreeable to what made me comfortable with the situ...

We had the distinct pleasure of working with another one of Angi's great clients that is only looking for the job to be done right the first time. And we did that when we salvaged her Sunroom that was done some years ago and not the best way. The framing was rottening and the roof was sinking. So we jacked up the roof to where it should be and completely rebuilt the structure underneath all with t...

From the first time Al came out to look at a laundry list of projects at our home, he was consistently generous with his time and very responsive as we narrowed in on what project to tackle first. He suggested a crown molding for our living room and dining room that was slightly wider than what we initially brought to him, and his judgment turned out to be better than ours. On the two install days...

We had great and productive time to help this client knock off one more thing off his wish list. We were able to find some custom crown molding that he was looking for and did a professional job of putting it up in thier living and dining room. The old plaster ceiling and walls made it a challenge that we were able to overcome and made it all look great. Amazing how some additional trim can change...

In a nutshell, Al does what he says, and says what he does. From my initial conversation with him, his integrity was quite apparent. The professionalism, communication, cleanliness, punctuality, reasonable costs, and his years of experience to make the project better are just some traits that make Al a stand-out contractor. I cannot imagine using anyone else for future projects. I am not one to gi...

Look no further!! Al is the best general contractor in the area!! We hired Al almost 7 years ago for a large scale home remodel (new floors, new windows, removal of load bearing walls, etc.) and he and his team were great to work with. Al and foreman arrived daily by 7 am & worked hard all day. He did not delay our project by setting up side projects during our construction. He was flexible with u...

It went extremely well. The new baseboards match the original ones perfectly and the craftmanship is outstanding. Before starting the project Al explained everything to us in detail. Al and Bobby were polite, efficient and cleaned up the mess as good as I would have and I am a stickler for that. Al Birkenmeier has done 6 different jobs for us over the past 5 years and every job is outstanding. We ...

Description of Work
Removed baseboards which were not original to the home and replaced them with ones that matched the original ones found in other rooms of the home. They replaced the baseboards in our living and dining room. Both rooms are approximately 13x 12. They also fixed several outlets that were awkwardly inserted into the old baseboards.

We hired Birkenmeir and Sons to install a sliding French door into a three seasons room, and we are thrilled with the results. Al and Bobby had to create an opening from the living room and cut through an exterior brick wall to create the space needed to install the door. They were extremely neat, made sure to clean up as they went, and communicated what they would be doing each day. The most impr...

I have a 3 seasons porch that was getting mold on the inside. In addition, the base boards were bulging out. I called Al Birkenmeier and Sons to determine what needed to be done and for a quote. Al recommended we demo the porch and rebuild it due to moisture getting in and causing rot. Once the demo began, I realized how correct he was and was surprised to see how rotted the wood was. The project ...

Well this client had a losing propositions if front of her and my fifty years of experience proved to be accurate. The walls of her enclosed 3 seasons porch was buckeling outwards and since it was covered in aluminum the root cause was not apparent. I figured what was covered was giving way to deterioration of support framing. Once we got the job to fix it after we uncovered the support framing I ...
