I used Harder Contracting for a major home exterior renovation this past summer. Because I didn’t want to hire 4 different companies for 4 different projects (siding, deck, fence and roofing), I hired them to coordinate all 4 projects. I was quoted $41050.00 + GST for all of this work combined.
Included in this price were a 16x24 composite deck, 140 feet of wood fence, new siding on the front of my house as well as stone up the support pillars, and a new roof.
Stephan overlooked the entire project and his workers were top notch. I noticed that most companies out there hire younger kids who don’t seem to care about much more than getting their 8 hours in, however the guys on his crew are exceptional. Harder Contracting has really put together a great group of guys who seem to pay attention to EVERY detail. At one point while building the fence, the guys weren’t able to get a hole deep enough (rock about a foot down into the earth) and after watching them fight with it for about half an hour, I told the guys it was deep enough and that they could concrete it in where it was. Jim’s response to this was “no chance, know what I hate more than having to spend a couple hours on a post hole? Coming back in a year to fix the issues it’ll cause.” This really stood out to me.... these guys ACTUALLY care!
Anyways, I would obviously highly recommend them to anyone looking for any of these services. It really is nice to see a company that cares about it’s clients and has a high level of quality control.
Although I was quoted $41050.00, my final invoice was $38400 which was a nice little bonus!
