TESTIMONIALS
Customer Testimonials
“We were very pleased with the work performed by Bill and the team of Straight Up Custom HTestimonial Page - New Market House.jpgomes. Unlike many contractors we have worked with in the past, Bill was on the job when he was scheduled and he did exactly as he said he was going to do…no surprises, which was refreshing. He and his team also went above and beyond what they were expected to do. He discovered while replacing the trim around our outside bay window that the framing of our home was not protected with Tyvek or some sort of weather proofing materials. Bill removed the siding and made sure that our house was protected before proceeding with the window trim. Speaking from experience, this is a rare quality to find in a contractor. We love working with Straight Up Custom Homes!”

“I used Straight Up Custom Homes to build a roof over my deck. Their bid price was lower than the others I received and it included more complicated features. Bill Brown took my vision and a picture and created an absolutely amazing roof complete with fans and lighti10CoveredPorchAfter.jpgng in only a week. It’s beautiful! Bill Brown guarantees his work for 5 years and when I called because one of my roof shingles had blown off (on another project he did for me), he had a crew out to my house in a few days to fix it at no cost. Bill’s crew includes very talented, helpful and nice guys who go above and beyond to make sure the customer is happy. I really can’t say enough good things and I recommend Straight Up Custom Homes to all of my friends who want home improvements.”

“I contacted Straight Up Custom Homes and asked them to bid on a new bathroom project for our house in Caroll County. Their pricing was very reasonable and Bill made logical suggestions that enhanced the overall project. I felt very comfortable having Bill and his workers come in to our house to do their jobs. The best thing I can say about Bill and everyone at Straight Up Custom Homes is that they care and work on your house like they would work on their own homes. They were all very professional, friendly and kept a VERY clean work area. The new bathroom looks amazing and my wife couldn't be happier. Straight Up Custom Homes is a great resource for all types of home improvements and I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks Bill!”

“A few years back I had mentioned to my brother that I was thinking about having some work done on my house. He recommended Bill Brown of Straight Up Custom Homes. I contacted Mr. Brown and was impressed with his knowledge and genuine interest in tServices n Test Shirley Fence Project After.jpghe projects I wanted to have done. I can honestly say that each of those projects were done on time and within budget. Over the years, I have had Straight Up Custom Homes replace the siding, shutters and spouting on my house. I have had the old deck replaced with composite decking (which I love). I have had walls removed and flooring replaced. Most recently, I had our old shed taken down and replaced with a new shed that matches the appearance of the house. The yard has been replaced with new sod. The fence has been replaced with a beautiful no maintenance vinyl one. Last, but not least, I had Straight Up Custom Homes remove a large conifer tree from our yard and trim our blue spruce.

Many times when I have asked Mr. Brown if his company can do something for me, he always gives me the same response...we do it all.

I have recommended Straight Up Custom Homes to my friends and family and I strongly recommend them to anyone who wants to have a job well done and be treated with honesty and fairness.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to Straight Up Custom Homes for the fanLaRue Porch.jpgtastic job of constructing my new front porch.  The project was complicated because of the hip roof on the house but the team of Straight Up Custom Homes completed the project with no problem.  The porch looks beautiful and the porch blends in with the house perfectly.  I was pleased with the suggestions for the types of materials to be used and the overall size of the porch that would best accomodate our needs.  The price was very reasonable and the workmanship was superb.  We have received many wonderful comments about our new porch.  Everyone says that it really sets off our home and that it looks as if it was always there.  I am extremely pleased and a very satisfied customer!”

Bill Brow5 Custom Addition Garage.jpgn and the Straight Up team were great to work with for small jobs (adding a closet), a medium sized project (converting attic space to a master bedroom) and a very large project (addition of attached garage with laundry and in-law suite). The work is high quality and Bill really worked with me to keep the job within budget and on time. Over the past twenty years, Bill has helped make my house into the home of my dreams. I have had complete strangers stop in front of my house to comment how nice it looks!

We experienced a house fire in February.  As devasting as it has been we have been extremely blessed by neighbors, friends, relatatives and even complete strangers who rallied to supply us with what we needed to rebuild our lives.  However Bill Brown is set apart as he was quite literally there from start to finish.   He not only spotted the smoke and called 911, he rescued our dog from the fire!  Later that night after the fireman were gone, it was Bill and his team at Straight Up who secured our house and roof.  Bill worked with us to rebuild our home, not as it was previously but with a completely different roof and floor plan. Bill also worked with our insurance adjuster to procure a fair settlement. Bill and  his team at Straight Up made our job a priortHome-Home-Restoration.jpgy. When Bill said he would have us back in our house in three months, there were more than a few skeptics.  Insurance negotiations, permit setbacks and changes to the floor plan could have crushed that possibility but Bill was undetterred.  In the end, Bill got us back in our home at least a week earlier than his anticipated timeframe. He really wanted to make our home special and made suggestions to improve the overall appearance and functionalty.  Bamboo floors and stone on the front porch wall are two things we love but would not have come up with the idea on our own.  I really don't think there exists another builder who would cares so much or works more dilgenty than Bill Brown.  We love our new house and are so glad to be home.
