5.0 Dale L. Cincinnati, OH

Jacob and his crew went out of their way to work with us on this deck and it turned out to be a great addition to our home. I would highly recommend Prather Construction to anyone and we already have future plans for them to do on our home.

5.0 Karen Y. West Harrison, IN

Jacob was on the ball. Always early & ready to work. We made changes to plan - he was always willing to accommodate us. Job well done!! Thank you.

Response from Company:

Thank you Karen! This garage build was an amazing opportunity and you two made it amazing. Thank you for allowing Prather Construction to build your new garage! Thanks, Jacob.

5.0 Janet R. West Harrison, IN

Prather Construction ( Jacob) was professional and friendly. All work was completed as scheduled and the quality of the build is excellent. The team cleaned up and disposed of all demolition materials. I found Jacob to be helpful and honest. He follows up on all messages and upon completion will review the completed work with you to ensure you are satisfied. I would recommend Jacob Prather for any of your construction needs. I have already asked him to look into my next home improvement job.

Response from Company:

Thank you Janet! There?s not too many decks being built in the winter. But if you need it done you know we will be there. Thanks Jacob

5.0 Patrisha H. Moores Hill, IN

Mr Prather replaced 12 joist under our home as well as subfloor in our entry, dining and front room that had rotted due to poor installation when the home was built. He was very knowledgeable and did a fantastic job !! There was no category that covered this job.

Response from Company:

Thank you Patrisha! I hope all is well you two. I enjoyed the work and know we will do more. Thanks, Jacob

4.0 Colleen H. Cincinnati, OH

A couple of issues with a popped board, curved on the deck. Other than that, the work was completed in a timely manner. The start up was a bit slow due to rain and prior job which was also held up by the rain.

Response from Company:

Thank you Colleen! However, I wish I had known you had an issue before the review. But thank you for the work it was a pleasure! Thanks, Jacob.

5.0 Adam G. Hebron, KY

Prather Construction did a great job on my project. All work was very high quality and completed on time and everything cleaned up when finished. I highly recommend Prather Construction. I will personally be using them exclusively from now on. Thank you!

Response from Company:

Thank you for the review Adam! I hope all is well with you and your family. Thanks, Jacob

5.0 Haiyang A. Cincinnati, OH

Jacob helped us to install a kitchen vent hood in October 2017. The job involves drilling through an eight-inch round hole through a brick wall, and because of the location of the stove underneath the hood, the hole needs to go through a stud, which is weight-bearing in an exterior wall. Prior to hiring Jacob, I have contacted two other contractors. One ultimately declined the job after an initial walkthrough, citing reasons that the hood is commercial-grade and they simply could not do it (despite promising an easy job during the initial walkthrough and measurement). The other from a named company proposed a solution that did not involve reinforcing the stud (and joked about the house is not going to falling down because of lack of support of one stud). Jacobs solution included the reinforcement of the stud, and the quote was quite reasonable, and that's why we decided to enlist his help. He has not only built an entire frame around the shortened-stud (with headers, and multiple sister studs), but also fastened the 80-lbs vent hood to the top as well as to the back of the wall. Its so sturdy that that he put his entire weight on it, and the hood wont budge. He also helped with drywall and electric outlet installation. We are extremely happy with the quality of work, and his overall attitude in the project. Well definitely consider his service for future handyman projects.

Response from Company:

Thank you Haiyang! I was happy for the opportunity and am very glad we connected. Thanks again, Jacob Prather

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.

    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
