    4.5 Justin W. Ortonville, MI

    Few bumps but overall best experience with a contractor that Iâ ve had.

    4.5 Rob W. Waterford, MI

    Team was very professional and courteous; they spent nearly an extra day bracing our subfloor beams, cleaning up dings, etc. They put down protective mat everywhere and took all the materials with them. Very happy with their work and would definitely hire them again.

    I had Northstarr back for a second time to build a ramp to my deck and redo a pantry. Woody did the carpentry work on both projects. He was great to work with and listened to what I had in mind and discussed options with me. He showed up every day on time and worked hard all day long. Before he left each day he cleaned up his area and was respectful of my property. I love my new ramp and pantry! Already planning my next project now that I have a trustworthy company to work with that I know will do a great job every time.

    Response from Company:

    Thank you for contacting us again Marilyn. We have enjoyed building for you, first the carport then the deck ramp and pantry. You recently asked us to rebuild your garden trellis and we are looking forward to that job also! Again, thank you for the kindness towards my crew members, they love working for you.

    Construction team was professional, trust worthy and great to work with. Job was completed in a timely manor. Cost was reasonable. I would definitely hire them again.


    Scam artist. Took $2000 to install a $650 garage door wrong and won't respond now. I have a $1000 bill to fix the garage he installed wrong. Do not hire. I have to take them to small claims court now just to pay to fix it.

    Response from Company:

    Thank you for your review Ali. Here is the price breakdown on your garage door job. 1400. custom-built, windows on top, wood brown color, 16' insulated door Labor- 2 guys, 4 hours remove old and install new, no extra charge to install new motor- 750. Fee to remove old 16'x 7' door- 250. I asked you to replace the old tracks but you did not want to spend the money. 2400 total. When your tracks failed, I told you I would come to fix them, you simply buy the tracks I will install No charge. **I will sue you! This is your fault!** You forgot to mention the drywall, 2 decks, Crete front step we did, all part of the scam Ali? Jeez..

    I first contacted Northstarr Builders to find out pricing and information on getting a wood stove installed. I had so many questions about all the options out there and I needed some steering in the right direction. Marty and his team worked to get me the answers and show me all the different ways that what I needed could be accomplished. They worked with me to find out what I required and what I didn't. I live in a small home so space was my biggest requirement! They figured it all out for us and drew up a plan. They ended up building off the back of the house to extend it out so the wood stove insert would fit into the wall and save us our space! Their quality and workmanship speaks for itself! We have a beautiful wood stove now with some wonderful tile work that accents the house nicely! Northstarr has an extraordinary team of professionals that work to make your project exceed expectations! I would be using them again for any other new project we need done! Well done fellas!

    Northstarr tore down my old carport and built a new structure in its place. They did a fabulous job and took extra care to match the siding and shingles to my house and outbuildings. The crew was courteous and hard working and they showed up everyday except for the two days we were waiting for the engineered trusses to arrive, which I was informed of ahead of time. I plan to have Northstarr Builders back for several other projects.and would highly recommend them to anyone interested in quality work for a fair price.

    Response from Company:

    Thank You Marilyn for the great review. You were awesome to my crew providing cold bottled water for them daily during the hot weather, certainly not expected but much appreciated. We are looking forward to your next project!

    Hired NorthStarr Builders LLC to refinish a deck that was built in 1977. NorthStarr Owner, Marty Johnson helped us think through whether to replace with a composite material, or sand and refinish existing deck. Ultimately, he recommended replacement of existing surface with a newly introduced product - a cedar-toned treated yellow pine that looks beautiful and fit best within our budget. NorthStarr also stripped and refinished a bench/trellis section of the existing deck to match the new deck material. I appreciated that Marty was a very responsive communicator all through the project and worked with us to address some glitches that inevitably come with a large project like this. In my estimation, the measure of a good company not only regards their workmanship, quality and responsive communications but how they resolve issues. On all such scores, I give Northstarr Builders high marks and recommend Marty and his great team with enthusiasm.

    Response from Company:

    It was a pleasure to serve you and Miss Norma. She is the most wonderful and vibrant 91 year old person I have ever met. We are honored, thank you.


    They were good to work with. A little disappointed with the wood they used. Did not use decking wood on deck or rails. Just used treated pine wood. Wood is very rough and will need to be sanded to avoid getting splinters. The workmanship is very good and looks great. Make sure you get a material list of the kind of wood they will be using.

    Response from Company:

    Thank you for your review Belinda. I?ll be honest here, it pains me to read this review considering how nice your deck turned out. We use Treated southern pine on your deck as there is only 1 grade of treated lumber. You were given the opportunity of several different materials for the railings, PVC, composite, and aluminum But because you were on a budget you chose wood railings. Every joint was mitered, and all top and hand rails are sanded smooth. We even catered to your want of getting the deck in before Memorial Day weekend working late every evening despite having a contract finish date 2 weeks later. Your deck was built with quality and pride, your next door neighbor requested a quote after seeing our workmanship. The building inspector commented on how our deck completely changed the look of your house and how well constructed it was. And finally, we changed the stair pattern originally agreed upon because you didn?t think it would accommodate your dog ?napping? on them, no extra charge despite having to resubmit a change of plan to the township. When my crew pulled out after completion you called me at 10:00 at night upset because you believed a worker had taken your cat, you texted me the next day saying you found your cat. Overall you have a beautiful strong deck completed in a tight time frame even after last minute changes, all done on a tight budget.

    5.0 James T. Brighton, MI

    Response from Company:
