    0.50 Warren O. Belgrade, MT

    Do not allow this swindler to come anywhere near your home! I hired Mike Tarpey to remodel a bedroom and adjacent walk-in closet in my home into a library with built-in shelving. While displaying technical competence himself, Tarpey hired insufficiently skilled subcontractors to do the work and failed to provide adequate supervision for them. Consequently, the project dragged on for months. He originally provided an estimate for labor hours/cost but made no attempt to honor it or justify the vast cost overrun caused by his incompetent project management. I fired him when I had evidence to confirm my suspicion he was also billing me for hours not actually worked. Tarpey's disrespect for me as a customer went so far as sending me a profanity-laced e-mail when I questioned him on those hours he tried to bill. I ended up with 2/3 finished project that cost me far over Shamrock's estimate. I then had to find a more scrupulous contractor to complete the job.

    Response from Company:

    It saddens me to find this bad review left by Mr. Olsen. I really liked Warren and I did my best to make him happy. There unfortunately are a lot of untruths in his review. I never gave him a quote for the job Since he was unsure of exactly what he wanted. The job was always on an hourly rate.. And I have a contract to prove that. I never lied about making up hours. And I am definitely not a "Swindler" by any means. All you have to do is look up my other past reviews. Thank you Michael Tarpey, Owner of Shamrock Carpentry LLC.

    Mike Tarpey and Shamrock did a great job residing my home as well as building a new deck and 2 shed roofs. They did a great job were always professional and the work was done in a timely manner. The job site was clean and the workers were friendly.

    5.0 Roger J. Bozeman, MT

    I thought the build/replace went exceptionally well. Their chief carpenter Paul was very particular about getting things exactly right. And so was Mike, the owner. The deck itself was a challenge because it was high off the ground (nearly 11 feet). And the weather was also a challenge (sub-zero mornings and snow). The horizontal surfaces of the deck are all Trex and I must say, the deck was built like the proverbial "brick outhouse." I have never seen step stringers made from "glue-lams" (essentially laminated beams). When you climb up the steps, it feels like you are climbing concrete steps, because they are so solid. The rebuild of the deck (including the tearing down of the existing one) was not cheap (Trex is way more expensive than wood), and it took a bit longer than promised, but it was worth it. The new deck looks super, and I feel like it could hold 50 people.

    Mike Tarpey and Shamrock Carpentry recently completed building a 24x30 garage/shop for me. Suffice it to say Mike and his crew were simply AWESOME! Mike is as honest, ethical, trustworthy, and honest as the day is long. Additionally, he demands top- quality from his crew....if it is not right to his satisfaction, it is a complete do/over. No project is likely set-in-stone at the onset. That said, Mike is easy to talk with (discuss), is an excellent listener, and strives to find a reasonable (and fair) resolution. I unequivocally recommend Mike and Shamrock Carpentry LLC for whatever your construction needs might be. So nice to get a great garage/shop built and gain a new friend in the process!

    Response from Company:

    wow, thanks Dave. that was very kind of you. Mike

    5.0 Steve S. Bozeman, MT

    Mike and his crew were great, on-time, and did an outstanding job, even when I changed my mind mid job!

    Response from Company:

    Thank you Steve it's very much appreciated

    5.0 Debra M. Bozeman, MT

    Mike and his crew are exceptional craftsmen and wonderful to work with. They kept us well informed on a daily basis and Mike got back to us right away when we had questions. We told Mike what our budget was and what materials we wished to use. When the porch on the front of our house was finished it well exceeded our expectations, right on budget! We highly recommend this contractor if you want quality workmanship and to deal with an honest professional.

    Response from Company:

    Thank you so much Mike and Debra. I really appreciate it. God-bless

    5.0 Garret K. Bozeman, MT

    Thank you, Garrett!

    Mike and his guys did a great job building our porch. What a great vision for the space, my wife loves reading or enjoying a glass of wine in this great new room! Tarpey Construction will be the first company we call when it's time for another project at one of our properties.

    Response from Company:

    Thank you Craig
