Showed up on time. Very professional at their work and respectful of ours. They are intelligent and experienced. Full wall demo and rebuild on carpet and we did not even have to clean up where they were working.

John and his crew did a fantastic job at finishing our basement into a future in-law suite. They always started on-time each day, very communicative and helpful in walking us through how the project was progressing or any potential changes to the final bill, and always kept us involved with the design. Was also very impressed at how fast and efficient they are with what they do! These guys know what they're doing and would be happy to bring them back for another project any time.

Reviews and Testimonials

My husband and I were very impressed with John Tidwell & Sons. Prior to contacting them, we had received three estimates from other contractors, and I was not impressed with their lack of knowledge and pricing. When I met with Sam from JT&S, he seemed extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. The estimate he provided seemed reasonable, so we hired them. Each day they communicated what they planned to accomplish, and they met their timelines. They worked quickly, but quality was not sacrificed. John and his team paid attention to every little detail, and they cleaned up after themselves each was if they weren't even there! My husband is in law enforcement, and he is very mindful of "strangers" being in the house. John and his team were professional and trustworthy; we left them at our home alone every day. I run a major retail store, so I value customer service, professionalism, and quality work--John Tidwell & Sons gets an A+

I couldn't ask for a better experience. Tidwell & Sons are professional, courteous, clean, and did a fantastic job of arriving at our place on time, leaving the place in immaculate condition all the while the work was being done. When we needed some minor adjustments, they were happy to accommodate. They informed us of everything we needed to know about when it was safe to put things on the shelves, why we should wait, and how everything was assembled. I can't recommend them enough and I would absolutely use them again.
