Highly Recommended

They exceeded my expectations and made several months of renovation a pleasure because they clearly knew what they were doing and were on time, working hard, answering questions, being responsive and finding creative solutions that were cost effective. I highly recommend Yandow Green Builders.


Overall Experience A+

In the summer of 2007, Yandow Green Builders did a major renovation for us. We’d rate the overall experience A+ only because there is no higher grade.

Tim and his crew were a pleasure to work with. Although we began with a set plan, we made many changes along the way. For each one, Tim helped navigate and figure out the best way to make our new idea a reality. When people see his work, they are blown away by the attention to the smallest details – moldings, seams, wood types, etc. He followed up on everything he said he would, leaving nothing unfinished and even on budget.

Working with Tim was the most pleasant house related experience we’ve had in our 30 years of building, renovating, and landscaping. If we had more money, we’d keep him working forever on the house.

Willing to Collaborate

It was a pleasure working with Tim Yandow and his assistant, Dave, on my large deck addition last summer (2007). What I most appreciated was Tim’s willingness to collaborate on the design and adapt new ideas as the project went along. He was pleasant, responsible and professional throughout and we love our beautiful new cedar deck!

Ingenuity and Talent

Tim Yandow is without exception one of the best craftsman I have ever employed. He has completed several projects in my home and has always made the entire experience a pleasure. Many of the jobs required thinking out of the box and presented problems that could not have been solved without Tim’s ingenuity and talent. I hesitate to write all the great things I have to say about Tim for fear that you will think he wrote this review himself! He is so good on so many levels that for the sake of time and space I am just going to list his attributes: always on time, completely dependable, a pleasure to have around, honorable, extremely creative, organized, efficient and delivers a superb final product. In short, he expects more of himself than I do and when it comes to my home, I am a perfectionist. I would also like to mention that you can give Tim the keys to your house, go to work or, better yet, on a vacation and you will return to find your home well cared for, with projects completed as promised. Lastly, Tim is affordable. When I did my research and saw the quality of his work on other projects, I thought his prices would be exorbitant. To the contrary, Tim is extremely competitive.

After reading this over, I hesitate to submit it. I already have to stand in line behind his many satisfied customers and really Tim may be too good to share. Therefore, it is with a bit of reluctance that I invite you to contact me if you have any questions.

We used Tim Yandow Builders for two projects in the last year to help complete work needed on a rehab of our home in Burlington, Vermont. Tim and Dave built mudroom cabinetry with a built in bench seat and a covered back porch. Their work showed fine craftsmanship with particularly nice detail on the cabinetry, and they came in at a very reasonable price. Beyond the quality of their work, they are pleasant to work with and generally nice folks to have work in our home.

Excellent Work Ethic

We contracted the services of Yandow Green Builders in the spring of 2009. We came across his company name on the internet while searching for someone with green-building experience. We needed to have the entire home resided, tear off and rebuild the back deck and front porch in addition to replacing several windows. They completed the job in the projected time in spite of the rainy 2009 spring. Their workmanship is “top notch” and work ethic is excellent (even our neighbors were quite impressed). Now, every time we drive up to our home we are very pleased with the outcome. We can recommend them without reservation. J.W. and K.G. jvwaldron@yahoo.com
