an excellent job on transforming my three outdated 70's bathrooms into
modern, clean, and sleek rooms that match my surrounding updated areas.
I had a home appraisal completed after the remodel as part of a
refinance and the home value increased significantly. John completed the
remodel in a week and a half an minimized the loss of use as much as
possible. I would recommend John Leannarda he was professional, clean,
and punctual, and fairly priced."

"Since the moment I contacted John to build our deck we were completely
satisfied with the process. He was very courteous, responsive and
punctual. He always followed through with the intended plans and never
hesitated to answer all my questions (I ask a lot). Our deck was
completed on time and the final product was beautiful. John and his crew
took the time to construct a high quality deck and the finished product
is the envy of my neighbors. In addition to our deck, John has also
constructed a poker room and wet bar in my basement, both of which
turned our beautifully.
John is one of those
rare contractors that is highly skilled, reasonably priced but most
importantly true to his word. I would highly recommend him and would
never use anyone else."

We interviewed several contractors
before making our decision on who would build our deck. After our
meeting with you we knew our search was over. You not only returned our
initial call the same day, but you came at the appointed time and were
prepared, after giving you the dimensions for the deck, to give us an
estimate at our first meeting. Your estimate was right on the money.
When you called to tell us you were
ready to start building the deck, you and your great crew came on the
day promised and worked for 5 days straight to build a big, gorgeous
deck. We couldn't be happier. In our neighborhood there is "deck envy"
because of your beautiful job. You are professional, polite, meticulous,
and take real pride in your work. We would hire you again for any
remodeling project. We wouldn't hesitate to refer you to our neighbors -
in fact we already have!

"We were, and
continue to be, absolutely delighted with both our new front porch
itself as well as the building process with John Leannarda. When we
first thought about adding a porch across the front of our house, we
checked with other homeowners in Samhill to get referrals for builders.
The name that came up most was John's, although I wasn't able to find
any advertising for him. It seems his business comes mostly from word of
mouth and that all of his customers hang onto his number! From the
minute we sat down to talk with John about our project, we discovered
that although he brings much experience to the task, our project would
reflect our needs, tastes and budget. While working on our project John
demonstrated a meticulous attention to detail, a credible schedule that
we could count on, prompt and courteous contact with us, knowledge of a
large number of suppliers, so that we got the best materials at the best
price, and truly personal concern toward our project as though it were
at his own home. Many people remark that our front porch looks like it
"fits" the house exactly (and presume it must have been part of the
original site construction, though it wasn't). In the end, our front
porch was beyond our dreams!"

I wanted to write to you and thank you
for the new deck you recently installed. I was thinking back to the
first work you did for me after I moved to my new home in February of
2000. Since that time you have installed 3 decks, one screened-in porch
and completely finished my basement into a beautiful recreational room.
Your work has always been of the finest quality and you and your crews
have always acted professionally and skillfully. I would highly
recommend you to family, friends and neighbors.
Doug McGee, Mt. Airy, MD
I want you to know that Judy and I are
very pleased with the final results on the deck. The family initiated
it's use this past weekend with a gathering on Saturday, and everyone
really enjoyed and commented on the spaciousness and added room. The
workmanship is great, and as I stated once before, the outward appeal
and look really make a positive difference for the house! I very much
appreciate how quickly you responded to my request to replace the top
cap with Trex — I especially like the routing on the cap, which is a
very nice touch.
The bottom line is that you guys did a
great job. We have a wonderful deck that we've already enjoyed
immensely, and are very happy as customers. We definitely will recommend
you to others in the neighborhood who are thinking about decks, finished
basements, or other such projects. Feel free to use our deck as an
example of your work to potential customers.

"John is an excellent contractor and I
would recommend him to anyone. He did an outstanding job building both
our outside porch and finished basement. Reliable and quality service
accurately describe his company's commitment to excellence...all at the
Brian Bruffey, Mt. Airy, MD
I didn’t get a chance to thank you upon
the completion of our deck. We LOVE our Trex deck and have many envious
neighbors. The finished product turned out even better than we had
hoped. We would highly recommend a Trex deck as well as the Trex railing
components. The decorative railing is what makes it really stand out. We
just got deck furniture and are looking forward to spending more time
outdoors. We appreciate the professional service you gave us, the fair
price and of course the wonderful outcome of the finished product.

PS ~ When you get a chance (and we are
in no big hurry), please call us to set up a time for an estimate on
finishing our basement.
