Dear Mr. Dudlley:I
In the past week, the installation of new siding on my home at 1664 Ammon St. NW, Salem was completed by your firm. I want to take this opportunity to personally and directly tell you how pleased my wife and I are with your work. It is simply beautiful! It makes our house look brand new.Our first encounter with your firm was with your estimator, Erin Ellis. What a delightful person. She made us feel perfectly at ease with the discussion of the project, thorough in her explanations, and totally sensitive to our needs and desires. We felt as though we were dealing with a longtime good friend rather than a marketing rep. and she has a great sense of humor. We truly enjoyed working with her.Then, comes the work to be done. The crew, Greg Reutov and Nick Alaogoz did a fantastic job. They payed close attention to detail, were very prompt and courteous, and very professional in their workmanship. It was fun watching them work. They took great pride in their work and seemed to really enjoy what they were doing. Now days, it is rare to find skilled workers as good as these two men. They were simply outstanding!Finally, comes the follow up guy, Forrest (never caught his last name) to spray paint the garage door and trim work around the front and back doors. He was also extremely courteous and professional. He deserves to go far in your company. It is not often that I take the time and trouble to write a letter of appreciation such as this, but in this case, I simply feel that an email or phone call would not do. I‘m also going to giveyou a favorable report with Angie‘s List. With the aforementioned people working for youit is no wonder how successful your firm is and will continue to be in the future.

To Whom It May Concern:
We recently had some home renovations completed by your company. This included installation of new Hardi-Plank siding on our house and detached garage, replacement of 5 windows, roof replacement, and painting of the house and garage.Our initial contact with Erin Ellis instilled a sense of confidence in our choosing your company to complete our home improvement project. Erin was great at keeping us informed of scheduling, as well as handling any questions or concerns that came up during the process.The crews that worked on our house were AWESOME! Everyone was very friendly and easy to work with. Tony Stovin and his crew showed patience when dealing with our Oregon rainy weather! The crews were very conscientious in their work. The painter was a perfectionist when it came to the painting!While the siding crew was working on the installation, you even had someone come out and complete a roofing estimate. We had planned on replacing the roof next year, but the estimate was so reasonable, we decided to just take care of the roof at the same time as the ongoing project. We are extremely pleased with the finished product and would definitely recommend your company for anybody that needs any type of home improvement job done. Thank you for a job well done!
Sincerely, Bruce & Katie Rose

To Whom It May Concern:
We contracted JForrest Construction, Inc. to replace the siding on our house and paint the exterior once the siding was installed. We could not have made a better choice. This company is dedicated to providing excellent service to his clients. The job was done quickly and professionally. The crews were nice people to work with, considerate of our needs and did a wonderful job. We have a lot of windows on our home, which made siding the house more difficult. There were many complicated cuts which required precision work. The completed job is beautiful. They also kept the work site neat on a daily basis and cleaned up completely after the job was done.
The painting crew had to work around cold, rainy weather. They were careful to schedule painting when the walls were dry and the coat of paint applied would dry before rain or fog would cause it to run. We are very pleased with the job.
They kept in contact with us the entire time, making sure that we were happy with both the crews and the work being done. He personally examined the work in progress for quality control. The work J. Forrest Construction did on our home not only has greatly increased its value, but has greatly improved its esthetics.
We highly recommend JForrestConstuction. It is rare and refreshing to find a business owner who takes such pride in his work. We are very glad that we had the opportunity to work with them. We wish them the very best.
Sincerely,
Jeanie and Dan Mason

It is with great pleasure that we recommend JForrest Construction to anyone looking to re-side their home. We did extensive research and solicited multiple bids when re-siding our cedar-sided home. From the initial meeting where great care was taken to inspect and measure our home until the walk-around looking at the final product, we were treated to great craftsmanship, skill and professionalism. The bid was thorough, thoughtful and competitive. Jeff and his company gave recommendations and options and were receptive to our ideas about the project and understood the financial limitations we had to work within. The company and crew were communicative and easy to talk to and gave us feedback when solicited, as well as kept us informed of the project timeline and any new developments. The job site was kept clean daily and the project caused very little, if any, disruption to our lives. Clearly, this company has the necessary expertise to transform homes through the installation of new siding. Take our advice – if you are looking to undertake a major home siding project, call J. Forrest Construction.

My family and I would like to personally recommend J Forrest Construction Inc. We have recently had JForrest Construction replace the siding on our home. The professionals at JForrest not only offered a competitive bid, but also provided timely responses to our questions and patiently explored options as we determined the designs we envisioned. The finished product also included some new exterior door moldings and beautiful cedar shake on our gables. Thanks to their professionalism and promptness, our
home has received numerous positive comments and is a source of pride for our family. Yours truly,

To Whom It May Concern:
From the initial contact by phone to the final review and inspection, we have been impressed with the work of Jeff Starkey and his company JForrest Construction.
In addition to JForrest Construction, we had received four other bids from contractors to do the re-siding work on our home. While all were professional and their bids competitive, there was something about Mr. Starkey that stood out.
Before he even made the initial call to us, he had taken the time to locate and drive by our home, which in turn made for a more productive first meeting.
His performance expectations for his team are high, but we believe the bar he sets for himself is even higher. Professionally, he is dependable, steadfast and solid with an exemplary work ethic. Personably, he is honest, engaging and respectful.
His work is superior. His team arrived on time and worked efficiently and quickly, mitigating disruption to our household operations as much as possible. At the end of each work day all debris was cleaned up and all tools put away.
In addition to the siding, we wanted to relocate an outdoor light. Mr. Starkey made arrangements with an electrician to do the work. The result was exactly what we wanted at a reasonable price.
We would not hesitate to enlist the services of Mr. Starkey in the future. Please feel free to contact us if you wish to discuss our experience with JForrest Construction.
Sincere regards,
Patricia Feeny Dan Bender

We hired JForrest Construction to remove LP siding from the front of our house, build a new front entry, re-side, paint and trim our 2000 sq. ft., two story house and large shed. Jeff Starkey came highly recommended to us from the Realtors Referral Group.
When we met with Jeff, we were impressed with his professionalism, personality and expertise. His proposal was extremely fair and the project time was to be 3 weeks.
As we worked with Jeff, we found him to have an exemplary work ethic and to be a young man of high integrity and expected no less from his employees. They were on the job and working at 7:00 am and did not quit till 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The work being done was of the highest quality and was completed in exactly 3 weeks.
We also enjoyed Jeff’s employees very much; they were friendly, knowledgeable, talented and very hard working. We were very comfortable and enjoyed having them at our home.
We are so pleased with how our home looks now. Our neighbors slowly drive by and look and others have stopped to make comments about how nice it looks. We still walk across the street and say it looks like our “new home”.
We would to recommend JForrest Construction to anyone that expects honesty, quality, creativity and timeliness. It is a great company to do business with. They truely exceeded our expectations!
Thank you again,
Paul and Dawna Fluke

Dear J Forrest,
We want to thank you for the recent work you and your crew did on our home. From our initial contact with you in the bid process through the completion of the job every thing was done with the utmost professionalism.
You and your crew were polite and courteous at all times. Your crew showed up on time every day, worked hard all day, and cleaned up the work site every evening. We were very impressed with them and enjoyed all of our interactions.
Most importantly, the job was completed to our complete satisfaction on schedule. Our house looks beautiful and there isn’t one thing we can think of that would have made the experience any better.
We would recommend J. Forrest Construction unconditionally to anyone.

This letter is to thank you and affirm the excellence of the remodel project JForrest Construction Inc. recently completed in our home. Portions of the job were most challenging at times and you, Jason Dudley, Rick and the rest of your crew completed the changes we wanted in an exemplary fashion. In fact, the improvements are so different, one would never think our old bathrooms and closet ever existed. In particular, your communications, follow-up, and continual supervision really made a very positive impression on Susan and me. Obviously, we are not builders and, at best, we had a global view of what we wanted to accomplish. You took the time to explain, in layman’s terms what, and most importantly, why we needed to take the detailed steps you recommended. There was never any question that you represented our interests on all fronts. Specifically, you demonstrated why you demanded the best for our home and would accept nothing less. This behavior was most important because, at times, we did not know the difference from a poor to an excellent finished product. Your crew members were hard-working, good humored, and most importantly, we felt safe with them in our home. We recommend your work, dedication, and standards for the best remodel possible without reservation. Without question, we are most pleased with the job you finished.
