Testimonials: Home Builders; Columbia, MO
Being a single woman can be quite a challenge when it comes to home maintenance. You just never know who you can trust. I took several estimates to replace the huge decks running across the back of my home. I not only was uncomfortable with the cost of each estimate, but also the pressure to change my plans and also with the general way in which I was treated. I knew Neil was someone who I could work with almost immediately. There was no pressure, just good suggestions and alternatives. He respected my opinion and desires. And I felt safe when he and his crew were working on my home. I not only have two beautiful decks; but I have someone I know and trust for any home remodeling project.

We want to commend you and your company for the fantastic job you did on our deck. You were responsive to our requests and we relied on you to artistically produce the final project. It was exactly what we wanted and had envisioned it to be. Your design combined form and function to produce a work of art. We think Eckhoff Construction is the best Columbia has to offer.

I’ve been very pleased with the service and final product Eckhoff Construction has provided. From our initial meeting, to the estimate, to the work phase, I’ve been very impressed with how Eckhoff Construction keeps me informed and aware of what is taking place. Eckhoff Construction works quickly but is also incredibly thorough. Our deck is very sturdy and looks great! I couldn’t be more pleased!

Thank you for the beautiful fence that you built for us. I couldn’t be happier with the end result, all the neighbors could not believe how great it looked when you guys finished. I will definitely recommend you to all my friends and family.

I just wanted to let you know how happy we are we chose Eckhoff Construction to build our screened porch! I went to several of the local lumberyards for references. Your name came up quite often.
Our original plan was to cover our existing deck. You were the only contractor concerned about the condition of our deck and it’s ability to bear the weight of a roof. You did not pressure us in any way to start from scratch. Boy are we glad we did it! The water damage you discovered when removing our old deck was minimal. I doubt it would have been that way for long!
Thanks for helping us recycle the old deck’s lumber to keep it out of the landfill. It would have been a lot easier to throw it in a dumpster instead of stacking it. I like the fact you were even able find a new use for our old concrete pad at the bottom of the stairs.
The quality of your workers is very high. They showed up when you said they were going to. Cleaned up the area daily. Our yard had very minimal damage considering all the work.
Our friends and neighbors are quite impressed with the finished product. The screened-in porch looks like it has always been there. The roof tie-in looks flawless. I will not hesitate to refer Eckhoff Construction to anyone. Thanks for a job well done!

My wife and I have been fortunate to have Eckhoff Construction help us with several projects over the last few years. When Neil and his crew are on the job, you just don’t worry about the end product. The most recent was our 30’x 40’ horse barn. It was finished on time, exactly what we wanted and cost much less than expected. We would not consider anyone but Eckhoff Construction for future projects.

Neil consistently does a professional job. He maintains high standards for continuing education on new products, and proper product application, and leaves his customers very satisfied. Recently, Neil received wonderful reviews at the Lakeshore Estates Homeowners Association annual meeting for the wonder swimming deck he built on Hulen Lake. The deck looks great, was built to last, and was constructed in challenging waterfront conditions. Last year, Neil invested time in learning how to install Quality Edge Under Decking products. Since then, he has completed numerous applications of the product greatly improving the useful outdoor space his customers can enjoy.

It was pleasure to work with Neil Eckhoff from beginning to end in replacing the deck on our home. We had talked to a number of contractors and Neil stood out. We like his ideas and the thorough information he provides from realistic completion dates to options for the different types of building materials. We are very pleased with the deck. Although we had a fairly good idea of what we wanted (larger area, composite material), there were other factors such as maintaining our view of the lake we live on and placement of the steps, that proved to be complicated. Neil worked with us to come up with a design that exceeded our expectations. This included using stainless steel cable for the railings, a feature we had not considered but which made a big difference. Neil kept us informed every step of the way and there were no surprises. We are very pleased with the end result and would highly recommend him.
