Guild Quality Five Star Review

We found water damage on an exterior wall of our home. SFW carpenters surgically addressed the issue in an efficient yet thorough manner. I was very impressed with their team and will use them again in the future should the need arise. Our lead carpenter was awesome to work with, comprehensive, excellent communication, and he really knew his stuff when it came to this type of work. Gold stars all around, I’m very satisfied with the work, schedule, billing structure, and communication. Thank you!

They repaired bad wood and painted so that new gutters could be installed. I did not get a second bid because we used the company before and felt confident they would do a good job. I would recommend SFW and would use them again.

I appreciated being informed through the project as to what was happening, what they found, and explaining what needed to be done, leaving me to make informed decisions. Excellent customer service, superb quality ensuring lasting results.

Working with SFW was excellent for the roof work we needed! Even though it was a small repair, they were prompt, completed the whole project, including painting the new boards all in one day! Great work done!

Great company, great reviews. I certainly recommend SFW construction. I found carpenter ant damage and dry rot on the front of our home. SFW showed up with a team very quickly and came back on time every day until the job was complete. If your job needs to be done right – give SFW a call.

I had the lower level of my siding replaced and flashing installed by my concrete patio. SFW’s crew was fantastic. They were professional, clean, and fast, completing the project and clean up in half a day. The workmanship was perfect and pricing is competitive. I recommend SFW to anyone and will be using them in the future.

SFW repaired dry rot damage into two of our exterior walls, including behind a brick wall, and rebuilt everything after the wood was replaced. After they finished, the house looked exactly as it did before, except with brand new siding and wood structure inside the wall. We are super happy with the results and the quality of the work. They used Tyvek and Hardie Boards and other good brand materials. I was impressed that the work crew was there every day on time; great job!

We have used SFW Construction for two projects, and a third starting this week. The company has a unique process that is quite efficient, and the crew members are very knowledgeable and professional. They were courteous, went above and beyond, and fun to get to know during the process! We have been very pleased with the outcome of both projects and feel comforted knowing that we can hire them for repairs and not worry about the outcome, because it will be great!

I was extremely impressed with SFW Construction. They replaced the siding on the south side of my house. The team was prompt, professional, informative, and the siding looks amazing. I highly recommend.

Amazing job repairing dry rot, entailing tear-out, rebuilding, insulating & painting. They’re precise with carpentry, clean up every day & pleasant to deal with. Resulting work is much nicer than the existing house. I know I’ll use this company again.

I am very likely to recommend SFW Construction because of the attitude of doing great work at a fair price. The staffers who worked on our construction repairs in advance of our painting project were first rate.

Our supervisor had exceptional service. He talked me through everything, gave me options, and was very communicative. I was impressed with how he kept me in the loop, especially while working under challenging conditions, the wildfires.

Excellent experience. SFW crew was very professional. They explained the water damage they found and how it would be repaired. No half-way measures or just cosmetics, they did it right! Very pleased with the clean-up and end result. We will definitely hire them for other home maintenance projects. Thank you SFW Construction

SFW repaired the damage to the soffits, rafter tails, and some siding. We were impressed by the quality and how thorough they were in making repairs. They arrived every day, on time, informed us about what they were doing, kept us informed, answered our questions, and kept the worksite clean. The house looks like new.

Excellent. Everyone at SFW Construction was very attentive, and the work looks great. It’s a great defense against any type of water damage that would have eventually leaked behind the joints. We would definitely go to them again for any other siding work.

Crew showed up on time, explained their approach and got right to work. They worked quickly and efficiently as a team, removing bad siding, repairing areas that had rot, and replacing with new siding. The siding was done expertly and we are extremely satisfied with our selection of SFW to do this work.

I had an incredible experience with SFW Construction. I recently sold my home in Beaverton and I had SFW repair some water damage. The damage was worse than it first appeared and given the nature of water intrusion and not knowing how extensive it was, it can be a scary experience. But the site supervisor for my job was amazing. He kept me informed constantly, explained what was going on, what they would do next, and why, etc. It really made the experience much less intimidating. On top of that, they are a one stop shop for whatever work is needed. In my case, there was deck work, siding work, concrete pouring, drywall, door jamb replacement, etc. They did it all, and with exceptional workmanship and speed. I was very impressed all around and I will never use anyone else but SFW for any future needs.

We have used SFW Construction for two projects, and a third starting this week. The company has a unique process that is quite efficient, and the crew members are very knowledgeable and professional. The first job included removing five very large windows together as a panel to fix dry rot in the wall. The second job included repair to a back deck where it joined the house, which required the support of the deck to get to the dry rot on the side of the house, and removal of the entire French doors to correctly flash the floor with roofing material. The crew went above and beyond, they were professional, courteous, and fun to get to know during the process! We have been very pleased with the outcome of both projects and feel comforted knowing that we can hire them for repairs and not worry about the outcome.

SFW has done a couple of dry rot repairs for my home now and each time they have been professional and responsive to all my questions and concerns. Having projects scheduled has been surprisingly quick and each supervisor has been knowledgeable on the requirements for the repair and communicative on the scope of work. Having these repairs done has been a major stress relief and I am confident the repairs were done well.”— Joe Hofsheier • Vancouver, WA

SFW exceeded our expectations with the quality of staff and people working on-site. They were personable and friendly. They recommended job opportunities they saw, including ones they could complete beyond the scope of the job, giving me options.”— Patrick Preston • Hillsboro, OR

I was very pleased with the quality of their work and by how quickly and efficiently my job was completed. Even my neighbors commented on the job and asked for the company information for any future projects they may have.”— Gina Johnston • Portland, OR

SFW Construction completed major rot and water damage repairs at my house recently. Everyone I interacted with at SFW was very professional. The project foreman was great. He regularly updated me on the project status, answered all my questions, and the repair work was of high quality. I would re-hire for future projects.” — Michael Rhodehamel • Troutdale, OR

SFW fixed a leaky and rotten window trim in my house that turned into replacing siding, trim, and re-setting windows. I was impressed by the knowledge, dedication, and quality craftsmanship. The crew did fantastic work and kept me updated on the progress throughout the repair.  You are getting your $$ worth when hiring SFW.” — Mark Lindeman • Bellevue, WA

I hired SFW for a small project. They were very professional throughout the process. Scheduling was easy and quick, and the work was completed on time for a reasonable price. I would recommend SFW and would not hesitate to use them again.”— Jared Powell • Tigard, OR

“I am very happy with the professionalism and quality of work performed. It definitely feels higher quality than it was before SFW got here. Once work got started, the time to complete the work was pretty close to what my project supervisor predicted each step of the way. My project supervisor did a standup job. He took pride in his workmanship and general customer service on-site.”—Steven Fuqua c

“On the first day, SFW got right to work on our soffit project. We talked about a couple of options, and how they can paint the new soffit. I was surprised at what a significant impact fixing the street side soffit did for our curb appeal. It did not seem like a big deal, but it is so visible, and the crew did a great job. The project foreman did a great job communicating with us and completing our project on time, all while staying slightly under budget. One of the reasons I hired SFW–I did not get any other bids–was because you called me back. I have found a lot of contractors do not reply to leads from their web site. Often, they do not respond to calls. I just wanted the job done, and I took a leap of faith hiring SFW. I think I got excellent work at a fair price, and that is worth a lot more to me than the savings I might have found by working the phones and waiting to line up other bids. I would recommend SFW without reservation–I really appreciated the team’s professionalism and competency. I also want to give a hat tip for your responsiveness. SFW contacted me back right away. The entire project took three days and the whole interaction about two weeks–that felt really prompt for a construction project.”—Matt Trineer • West Linn, OR

“Although I was apprehensive about not receiving a fixed cost bid to repair my dry rot issue upfront, I read some of their reviews and concluded their time and materials approach made sense. If they are being transparent about their rate per hour and cost of materials, surely this is more sensible for a homeowner and could end up costing less than a fixed cost bid with built-in contingencies. Well, my decision paid off and my issue was repaired professionally and efficiently. The daily billing and multiple payment options made a big difference too. I highly recommend SFW.”—Jonathan Byers • West Linn, OR

“This company was very thorough and professional. They communicated very well and did a great job for me. I highly recommend them.”—Karvan Bjelland • Vancouver, WA

“I have had SFW Construction out twice for two different projects and found everyone professional and informative. I was consistently made aware of the issues that were the result of construction defects. At no time was anytime wasted with the siding and roofing repairs. They were prompt and efficient. The estimates for the repairs were reasonable and at no time were we pressured to sign into a contract. Discussions were held and options mulled before the contracts were signed. My wife and I expect to continue our relationship with SFW Construction for future work.”—Frank R. • Sandy, OR

“I am currently closing on a home and will be taking ownership tomorrow. Unfortunately, the siding has issues, and some dry rot around the windows. I contacted SFW Construction to find out more about the issue and a possible siding and dry rot repair. I was very worried about what I would hear, but the staff at SFW helped answer all my questions! SFW made me feel more informed about my project! I’m still in the process of deciding to fix the issues or re-side the entire home, but I know for sure I will be calling SFW Construction either way!”—Mirabella H • Portland, OR

“What a great company. Every interaction I have had has been wonderful. I highly recommend for siding and dry rot.”—Hallie Perez • Portland, OR

“The guys arrived at the time they said they would and were prepared for the repair. The job was done right in a very timely manner.”—Barry Hendrickson • Portland, OR

“Repaired structural damage to a standalone carport. Work was done in a day, in and out. The construction foreman checked with me before doing any materials buys or rentals and kept me in the loop. I have used them before and will again.”—Robert Houghton • Beaverton, OR

“Wonderful service—they completed the project ahead of plan, which was a very pleasant surprise. The team was professional, provided all of their own materials, and communicated the details clearly. I would highly recommend SFW to anyone.”—Matt Coin • Seattle, WA

“Was impressed with the crew and the service. Arrived on time, ready to work. Did the work in less time than expected so saved me some real money. Work was well done and the process painless…would hire them again without question.”—Leah Warren • Seattle, WA

“Your guys were a class act and went above and beyond to help me with a job. I had questions afterward and the office staff was on it immediately making sure all of my concerns were addressed and handled. I will totally use SFW Construction again.”—Jenifer Harris • Tualatin, OR

“I must take a moment to commend the employees of SFW. Every single person, from initial contact to final day, was courteous, articulate, knowledgeable and patient. I particularly would like to recognize Angel, who directed the crew at our project site. He was punctual, gave me daily progress reports, alerted me to any potential issues along the way, and wrapped up his part of the project leaving an impeccably clean site. He is a tremendous asset to the company and I greatly appreciated his direct yet kind manner. In what is already a stressful situation, Angel has grace and diplomatic non-confrontational skills that serve the company well. With both construction and painting aspects of my project, SFW was prompt to schedule and begin the process and worked diligently and conscientiously to complete work in a timely manner.” —Troy Johnson • Salem, OR

“Our house has extreme dry rot down to the studs in an area that had been hidden by the prior owner in an effort to flip the home. SFW did a phenomenal job getting down to the furthest extent of the rot, replacing studs, siding and remediating the roof and deck to prevent future problems. That isn’t to say it was a perfect road. This may be counterintuitive but the disagreement is where SFW stood out. There was an element in the final phase of the job that I wasn’t happy with and the front office was excellent about investigating my concern, correcting the problem, and making sure that the billing was fair. What proves worth is how a company deals with problems – is it collaborative and honest, or arbitrary and obfuscated? If you want a company of honest, transparent high quality tradesmen and women, SFW is well worth the cost.”—Aj Perkins • Portland, OR

“The quality of the work was very good! The foreman Robert was efficient, communicative and made sure the job site was cleaned up at the end of each day. There was a need to adjust the hours billed and since SFW has specialists in each position of the company (from customer experience, job site workers, billing, accounting, etc.) it took a while before we got a resolution. Once that was done the company was more than fair in the resolution of the issue. They are definitely a company that cares about the customer experience!”—Gaye Blyth • Beaverton, OR

“SFW Construction was great to work with on this project. We were replacing a deck and they took care of demolition, designing a new deck and once construction was done, did a great job working with us to find the best stain. We also had to do some house painting around the area of the deck and they were also able to help us with this as well. Overall, a great experience and very professional crews.”—Gina Vaccaro • Beaverton, OR

“I highly recommend using SFW Construction to do any maintenance project you have. I had three different, difficult projects that were one after the other. Sandra in scheduling was readily available making getting an appointment easy, Nancy in Billing kept me updated every day so I could keep an eye on the price and was prompt and clear with the invoice when the project was done. I had Christian come and check on quality control and satisfaction.  Greg, Chuck, and Alex were friendly, extremely knowledgeable project managers who fixed my severe dry rot, siding and window installations. Jord the Painter was very nice and luckily for me a perfectionist. He even color matched the color because we couldn’t find the old paint can. Overall SFW Construction is an A+ business to work with.”—William Prendergast • Portland, OR

“I have a very old double garage with barn doors and wanted the openings reconfigured for overhead doors. Since it is on the street I needed to coordinate the reconstruction with the garage door installers so the two projects would be completed simultaneously due to security concerns. SFW Construction was able to do this perfectly despite the fact that the old garage had dry rot issues and required much more improvement than I initially expected. After they completed the project we went to review it together. The completed project looks beautiful and the garage is now in much better condition than it was before. I couldn’t be more satisfied with both the work crew and the final result. After seeing the quality of their work I prefer to spend more money rather than ending up with the amateur result I would have achieved on my own.” —Jack Minor • Portland, OR

“I cannot even begin to explain how great Steve and his crew are, taking time to cover plants, move things out of the way, cleanup, prepare, and focus on the quality of their work. Their attention to detail is impressive, not to mention the extra things they did like filling up my Doberman’s water bowl or explaining how their tools work to my two young children. I encourage anyone to call or email me if you would like to know more about SFW Construction, I wasn’t thrilled about paying for a membership to Angie’s List but finding the right person to come into my home and perform work is important, I hope you find my long and wordy review helpful! A+ all the way, SFW is a rarity among contractors and I cannot speak highly enough of the integrity and care that ALL of the employees at SFW Construction took to go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure I got the best materials, best craftsmanship, and the best customer service possible.” —Levi Manselle • Gladstone, OR

“Great experience!!! Steve and his crew were professional, available, and completed the job timely. I love the outcome and confidently refer him to everyone else.” —Misty Cavener • Tigard, OR

“They paid careful attention to preparing the work site so it would affect as little of the rest of the house as possible. The workers were all extremely prompt and polite. The finished product has exceeded our expectations.” —Julie Bosket • Tualatin, OR

“The end result was flawless. I was extremely impressed with the attention to detail and the quality of work completed. I could not have asked for a better job! As a result, I recommended SFW to my boss. My boss used SFW Construction to paint her home, and she was equally pleased with SFW construction.” —Jeromy Goodpastor • Tigard, OR

“Steve was great to work with! He did an excellent job on my exterior painting project, showing up on time and putting in the extra effort needed to make my house look new again. He was a good communicator and reliable. Five-star review!” —Karen Nutial • Tigard, OR

“I would recommend them to anybody, I am now enjoying the high quality of their work and my friends have complimented me and gave me great reviews on the quality of the paint job.” —Gerald Wood • Portland, OR

“I would recommend Steve Wade to everyone. From start to finish, he will not only perform beyond your expectation but he will be a reliable guide through what can be complicated repairs/remodels to your home. Here is what you can expect: 1) He will help you make a detailed plan and if you are not sure about what you want, he will help by providing options 2) He will give you a detailed estimate that will include material and labor costs and he will be 100% accurate 3) He will show up on time, work incredibly efficiently and complete your project on time 4) He will maintain a level of professionalism that will give you peace of mind 5) The finished product will meet/exceed your expectation. If you need more evidence just look at his reviews” —Linda Holmes • Eugene, OR

“I want to thank the team for their professionalism and craftsmanship. After reading SFW’s reviews I chose them for my next home project. The crew that did my bathroom was courteous, considerate, and did a great job. They worked hard to find a solution that would meet my needs, both in quality and cost. They were honest and open about all of the issues and kept me informed of the work status. I had opportunities to discuss the plans and the results so that I felt part of the team. The tile looks amazing, and the paint and doors tie it all together. The team was knowledgeable and professional, and I would recommend them to my friends and family, 5-star review from me!!!! I will definitely use them again!” —Angelica Kniss • Portland, OR
