The Denders built our beautiful new home at Cape San Blas (see Gallery for pictures). Randy took our vision and turned it into reality. The house is a tribute to Randy’s ability to make dreams come true! After his unfortunate passing, Ryan took over to complete the house. He did a superb job that his dad would have been proud to see. The house functions perfectly and is a reminder of the quality work that goes with the Dender name. Ryan, we are so glad that you will continue to provide quality craftsmanship to homeowners!

“From small projects to big projects, Randy’s workmanship is high quality and guaranteed. Last year Randy completed an addition to our 1950’s era home to accommodate my mother, taking into account in his design and construction her failing eyesight. We are delighted with the outcome. Randy is very conscientious in his work and we wouldn’t think of using anyone else for future projects.”

“Dealing with contractors is always a cause for concern these days. TV reports always warn about scams from unscrupulous contractors. Randy, on the other hand, is in a class of his own in providing a quality outcome and service throughout the renovation process. The area was always clean and the guys did a great job of respecting our home.”
-Patti and Mike

“Randy listened to us describe our kitchen plans, expanded on our ideas and helped us create our dream kitchen. He brought positive energy and positive people into our space, there were no surprises…other than finding out that working with the right contractor can make renovation more fun than we had imagined! Worth every penny to have him on-site.”

“Randy enclosed our deck into a sunroom, and redesigned and updated our kitchen. In both projects, we were impressed by the superior quality of the workmanship including daily cleanup of the work area. And most especially, we loved the utility and beauty of the end product. They both blended seamlessly with our existing home design while providing wonderful additions to our living space.”

“Thank you so much for the amazing make-over, and for all your knowledge and advice, especially about the care and cleaning products you recommended, and the places to shop for tile and lighting. The lighting placement is, of course, perfect!! (And the soffits are gone! History! Fantastic! You’ve done beautiful work!”

We appeciated the clean up at the end of each day and removing trucks and trailers at night. We found Dender's workmen to be prompt, courteous, trustworthy, cooperative, considerate and with excellent knowledge and work skills.

Randy and Ryan,

This experience with your company has restored my faith in contractors and the process as a whole. I think the aspect I appreciated the most was knowing what to expect each day. Of course, that speaks so well of your organizational focus and communication with me. The quality of the work done by Ryan and the subs is evident. I am confident that the electical, plumbing and general construction was done right and built to last. Also, it was such a bonus to know that the construction space would be left as clean and functional as possible.

I can't speak highly enough about Ryan and the "crew". Ryan always came in with a plan and ready to work. He managed everyone on site well. He was clearly in charge but engendered a great rapport with each sub. I really felt my home was respected as well as my family (even my pets).

The finished product is beyond my expectations. You really helped me solidify my very foggy vision. I realize that you took on a challenge since most of the materials were purchased and delivered when you started. My kitchen is really "me" which is exactly what I wanted. Thank you, Randy, for accepting this challenge, for being extremely professional and for delivering a kitchen that is a beautiful and unique reflection of my home and my family.

I'll miss having you guys around.

Thanks again for everything.

Ann

"From my personal experience dealing with Randy Dender on a recent home repair, I recommend him with absolutely no questions. He delivered the proposal quickly, started immediately after we signed up, was on site to supervise, and finished as promised. A pleasure to work with."

Ryan,
I would really like to thank your for the magnificent work you, Sam, and your father completed in our house. You are truly professional in all aspects. Again, if you have anyone with similar water intrusion problems like ours and they want references, please feel free to use us. I cannot tell you how many sleepless nights I had worrying about who we would select and if the work would be "top notch". Building this house [originally] was a pure nightmare on top of having two small children.

"This was the first time I worked with a contractor and was very happy with the way Randy explained the process and kept me informed on what was being done. In the end, the project turned out exactly as I had envisioned and the quality of work was outstanding. Working with Randy and Ryan was a joy. I felt like any time I had a concern or question, I could call either one of them and get an explanation of what was going on. Communication was great."

(It was nice)...not having to search for individual contractors for each phase of the project. Randy used suppliers that were efficient, prompt, and courteous and were companies that I probably would not have picked out of the phone book. Randy Dender and his subcontractors were prompt, courteous, and completed their jobs up to our highest expectations. Thanks for a great job!

Mr. Dender recently built a mother-in-law suite which is attached to my former home, now occupied by my daughter and her family. The new addition matches the original home and his skills as an architect helped me decide upon the layout. Some of the things I truly appriciate about the project are;
1. Mr. Dender listened to me explain what I wanted and drew up multiple plans until we got just what I felt I wanted. However, as the process proceeded he was always willing to make adjustments as new ideas came along or as things needed to be changed.
2. The materials were never skimped upon and I received excellent quality for the price I was charged. The finished addition blends so well with the existing home that one cannot tell it is an addition.
3. The workers were all courteous and efficient as they worked. They helped with many small requests on my part as we went through the building process and finished the work in a timely manner. An interesting side comment is that many of the workmen commented on how much they appreciated working for Mr. Dender because of his demand for excellence and fairness as an employer.
4. My new home is just what I wanted and I feel confident in suggestion that you owe it to yourself to talk to Mr. Dender about your project whether you are building something new or simply redoing anything in your home. I am pleased to recommend his company.

We enjoyed both the quality of the work - after all, that's the bottom line - and the quality of the people. Randy, Ryan and the crew were all excellent, even fun. We like fun. We enjoyed the professional relationship and appreciated how well you treated Max, our Labrador Retriever. The Dender experience was a complete pleasure - quality people, quality work, and a beautiful deck.

Ryan,

It was wonderful to come home to a finished, brand new kitchen last night-thank you for leaving it all so sparkling clean and ready for us to move back in. We are delighted with the results and it makes it hard to keep moving with our part of the work--we keep stopping to admire it! We think it's beautiful.
