Our Difference

Good or Bad… At the end of your remodeling project you will be left with a Story.

The question is: What is your remodeling story going to be? There are so many nightmare tales out there and regrets from homeowners on who they selected for their remodeling project.

Since we started our business in 1988 we have been focused on creating remodeling stories that our clients proudly and happily share with their family and friends.

So what does our tagline, “Unlike Any Other Remodeler” mean? A statement like that does beg for an answer. It comes down to these core ideals:

We Care.
Our clients know that we care about them. Their property, animals, kids and remodeling investment. We care to call back. We care to follow through on the job. It’s the first thing we list here – because it’s at the core of Our Difference: We Care!

On Time.
Happy homeowners have their calls returned on time. Have a remodeler who shows up when they said they would. Have their remodeling project started and completed on time. This may make us a bit “Odd” in our industry, but makes you extremely happy.

We Communicate & Listen.
From our initial Project Discovery meeting all the through to the end of the Remodeling Process we listen to your ideas, feedback and concerns. We manage the project 100% for you and communicate with you on what will be happening next. Questions are answered quickly and problems are resolved promptly.

We Hate Surprises.
In our Post Project Survey’s we always hear from clients: “They did exactly what they said they would do. No extra charges. No surprises.” You’ll appreciate the lack of surprises during your project.

We’re Professional & Experienced.
We belong to the local trade organizations, attend training seminars and are constantly improving our knowledge and credentials to better serve you. We deliver creative solutions, unique designs and an exceptional finished job that will stand the test of time.

A recent Kitchen Remodeling client of ours commented, “It was such a fun process and experience!”
That statement summarizes Our Difference. A fun, enjoyable …and, well… “Odd!” Remodeling Experience.

“I needed help fixing a major structural problem in a rental house and just didn’t have any of my own time to devote to it. I’m really thankful for Bret and his team who could step in and fix it the right way, on time, and with minimal oversight from me. I have great confidence in their expertise and on the job performance.”

“Bret at Oddfellows Contractor is an exceptional contractor. He does the project as if it is for his beloved Grandmother. Meaning he does the work he was hired to do, he and his staff are polite, courteous and well mannered. The price he quotes is the price he charges. As an architect it is a pleasure to have him on the job.”
-Mary Swanson, Architect, Swanson Design Studios

“I originally met Bret in a BNI group we both belonged to. It became clear based on the testimonials Bret received that he was the kind of contractor that anyone would love doing a project for them. How many times did I hear – Bret did what he said he was going to do and always cleaned up at the end of the day?

As a Mortgage Banker, one of the loans that I specialize in is an FHA Streamline Rehabilitation Loan. I have 3 approved contractors out of hundreds in the Lansing Area that I recommend and are approved – Bret is on that list. I don’t know what else to say. I trust Bret with my clients.”

-Mike Silkworth

“Bret has an excellent reputation in the community for being a skilled builder with the highest integrity. He’s intelligent, has a strong work ethic, and most importantly, he’s honest. The next time I consider building, adding on to, or renovating my home, I’ll be giving Bret a call.”
