"Interviewed several contractors and chose DeShano on their honesty, reputation, and performance. Every contact at DESHANO was responsive and thorough. They contracted the building of our home, pond, large equipment pole barn, and livestock pole barn. I highly recommend them. They were helpful, professional, and on schedule. I didn't waste time worrying or questioning our projects with DeSHANO in charge."

"The staff is professional, courteous and has a can-do attitude. They did an excellent job on our new home construction making changes along the way seamless. The open-door policy on all concerns kept our minds at ease as well as encouraging us to visit the job site as much as we could. We highly recommend DeShano and will definitely call them again should another building need arise."

"A large, well staffed company that helped us make the selections and modifications resulting in what we consider is our perfect retirement home. Their large showroom lets you see the materials you are selecting. Their use of the internet and computerized kitchen design made it possible to finalize the design from across the state and complete the project to meet our moving schedule. They were very flexible in crediting things like closet shelving which we chose to do ourselves. They are up to date on building codes and produced a very energy efficient building. Their follow up team is very capable to fix the defects that are discovered after moving in."

"A very professional builder. They are full service company that starts the process with a concept, design, material selection and finishing with project management to home completion. They have full time sales staff that works with you to come up with a design that meets your needs and budget. Another huge plus is that they have material show room onsite that allows you select every detail for the home. But if want to chose other options that they don’t have on-hand they are very accommodating. They have a very detailed contract that really spells out exactly what you are getting from day one. If you do have a change during the build they are very organized at documenting the changes and the costs or savings to the initial contract. The contract does also contain a completion date which is monitored and adhered to. Using DeShano to build our house was really stress free for us and you don’t often hear those words about building a home. The bottomline is DeShano’s entire staff from top to bottom are professional and organized. If we were to build another home DeShano would our first and only choice."

"We had DeShano Companies replace a wraparound porch and add a deck to our cottage in Northern Michigan last summer. I did a lot of shopping around to find a contractor. I am a trial attorney who has litigated more than a hundred construction disputes and know the questions to ask and the things to watch out for. With that background, I cannot say enough good words about DeShano -- Jeff Zettel worked with us through several plan iterations until we finally settled on the scope of work. The specs were complete; the price reasonable and fair; its workers showed up on the day DeShano said they would; it completed the job within the original schedule; when the job was done, the Job Superintendent, Scott Hillier, pointed out some things that should be redone that we did not even notice; DeShano did those things quickly and without complaint; and the quality is exceptional. Chad DeShano, Jeff Zettel, Scott Hillier, and everyone at the company were always friendly and accessible. I give them an A+++++++++++++ rating! Bill S., Attorney"

"We could not be more pleased from the start of build for our new home to the final finish. DeShano Companies and their contractors were extremely professional and helpful during this entire process. It was a wonderful feeling knowing who was working at our house since most of the people who work for DeShano Companies are from our area. Our home has turned out so much more beautiful than we thought it would. We both know that we will use DeShano Companies again with any future projects."

"I was very satisfied with the entire new home construction process by DeShano. I worked with Jeff for several years before and he always maintained the professionalism I encountered from our very first conversation. Jeff was usually available to take a call and always returned calls promptly. He was very knowledgeable and sensitive to our particular needs. The administrative staff was very helpful and professional as well. We could not be happier with our site manager, Doug. He kept us up to date with day by day plans and finished our project on time. All of the workers were highly skilled and took pride in their work. I highly recommend DeShano; we love our new home!"

"I do recommend DeShano Companies for your home building project. I selected a “shell package” because I wanted to be more hands on in building our cottage. Jeff Zettel did an awesome job guiding me through the process. His expertise helped me with many of my decisions and believe me there are a lot of them. Scott Hillier did a great job managing all the trades on site. Everybody who walks through the door comments on the quality & craftsmanship they see in the home. Even though I decided on a shell package, I find myself going back for flooring and cupboards as I finish the interior. I dealt with 3 different companies (all great) and I chose DeShano because of their professionalism and pricing. No regrets!"

"Hired DeShano to construct a home for me in northern Michigan. I live in Dallas TX. They completed the job on time and everything was done how we wanted. It was difficult due the distance but DeShano was able to coordinate all aspects of this custom build."
- Marty F.
"Great job. Jeff always returned my phone calls when I had questions. If he did not know the answer, he would find out and get back with me."
- Hank C.
"Jeff Zettel with DeShano construction did a very fine job with our retirement home build. Working with Jeff was a big advantage to us. He was able to see into our plans and working with us put together a home that exceeded our dreams. We would highly recommend Jeff, and all the people at DeShano Companies."
- Thomas L.
"Everyone at Deshano's was very helpful and good to work with. They allowed us to design our own home and do a lot of the work along the way. Great for a homeowner who wants to participate as much or as little as they are able to."
- Kate S.
"We love our new log house up north, and the complete experience of building this home with DeShano Companies was terrific. Jeff was extremely knowledgeable in helping with all the details of the plan, and Scott as foreman was great to work with. The quality for the price was outstanding and I would recommend this builder to anyone considering building a home in central and northern lower Michigan."
- Greg G.
"DeShano Construction has been the most professional team that I have worked with. I have tried other contractors, but no one else measures up to these guys. They handled the remodel of my house while I was a thousand miles away in Georgia and didn't miss a beat. They did such a good job I trusted them with the work on my parents home and our deer camp as well. They assign a professional supervisor for each job. It's nice to have one contact that handles all aspects of the work. And due to their size and leverage, they are usually cheaper than most of the local contractors in town. I highly recommend them and will use them again myself."
