Trent and his crew are fantastic.  The job here turned out great because they are concerned about the small details that, in my view, push their work over the top…

They have earned their name… Straight A+

You won’t find a crew out there that is more honest and detail oriented than Trent and his guys.  In fact, all of the subcontractors Trent uses are excellent, trustworthy, neat, and pay attention to the little things you may not even realize exist.

Trent and Scott consistently see issues ahead of time and make suggestions to solve them in ways that keep you on budget.  We are very happy with Trent’s design for our basement, especially his idea to reorient the bathroom to maximize our space.  Everyone who sees our basement is amazed at their work and shocked by the transformation.

Trent is always available to talk and is responsive to all inquiries in a timely manner.  He knows very good materials vendors and gives great, honest advice when choosing your options.

In our minds, Straight A is the only option for our home projects from now on, even if it means waiting until they are available.  Trent and the special group of guys that work for and with him are worth it.  You’ll know it the second they show up on day one.

“For years I planned and waited for the right time to add a combination screened-in porch/deck area to the back of my house. I interviewed several construction companies and independent carpenters before deciding on Straight A Builders, Inc. I could not have made a better decision. The planning started with Len DeYoung who met with me several times discussing the project then finalizing the plans with a computer sketch for me to view. From beginning to end of construction both Len and/or Trent VanderZee were on the job site watching over the various phases of construction for precise measurements and accuracy to the plans. I was very impressed with their attention to detail and with the solid construction of the addition to my house. In addition to being skilled carpenters, both were gentlemen to work with showing patience with my impromptu changes to the plans. My neighbors confirmed my opinion of their work by sharing complements with me on the final product. I would not hesitate to recommend Straight A Builders to my family or friends.”

“We chose Straight A Builders as General Contractor for our new home because we felt we could trust Trent’s advice and professionalism. We had never built a home before, let alone a custom home, and we knew that we would need expert help in the decisions we needed to make. Trent helped steer us through the entire process, and we are thrilled with the end result. If we were ever to consider moving, we would definitely build again and use Straight A Builders as General.”

— Terry and Beth H.


“I first met Trent through a common friend who was building a home using Trent as the General Contractor. Trent came along when the owner interviewed me to be a subcontractor for his job. Trent was very interested in making sure that all the subcontractors were quality. When I saw the quality of Trent’s workmanship, I knew there was not another that equaled his quality.  I have been in the trades for over 30 years, and there is no doubt who to call when I need work done. I have recommended Straight A to many folks, and all have been elated with the results. Trent goes over and above the call of duty! ‘Trent and Straight A Builders, it’s a no brainer!”

— Tom K.

“We had Straight A Builders complete the trim carpentry and install our cabinetry in our offices.  The craftsmanship demonstrated by Trent and his team are excellent.  They gave our modestly priced conference room cabinets the look of high end custom cabinetry.  Great people and great value.”

— Tim M.


“One of the things that expresses the difference in construction by Trent is the quality of the work. When the City Inspector came in for the rough inspection he remarked how well things had been done. His former job? Carpenter. That tells you the quality of Trent’s work. I also knew he was honest all the way from contract to invoicing. Thanks Trent. “.

— Dan S.

We would be happy to be a reference in the event you ever need us. Thanks again for all your work and effort you put in on our two projects.”

— Marthann G.
