Client Reviews & Recommendations

Roger & Dianne Burns had this to say:

"We first met Keith and Dusty in 1994 when we decided to move from our condo and build a house. We had found our own floor plan and asked CRDR for a competitive custom build price. It was clear their construction standards were better than our other bidder, and they still beat the price. We were actually in the house sooner than the original estimate. The best indication of our satisfaction is that in 2004 we decided to build again (also a custom built floor plan). Based on our excellent experience with the first house, we had Keith and Dusty do the second house. There are several reasons we have been so satisfied with their work. They are always available right at the site to talk to. They will readily make changes if we see things we would like different. Because they are the business owners, they can do this without any delay, evenafter the framing is underway. They arrange for sub-contractors to always be at the site when required to keep things on schedule. More than all of this, however, is their willingness to stand behind their product. As a result, even with all of Dusty's ususal construction and business responsibilities, he is always quick to respond to any call for questions or help. Our experience has been that this true regardless of how long it has been since the final property purchase. Throughout the 15 years we have known them, no question has been too small to get personal attention."

Doug & Peggy Straub had this to say:

"CRDR built our first home in 1997. We were very impressed with their commitment to schedule, on-site presence, subcontractor relationships, and dedication to building a quality home. Our overall experience with custom home building was remarkable, as Keith and Dusty work hard to make our dream home a reality. Schedule is king and the manner in which Keith and Dusty coordinate with their subcontractors virtually elimantes wasted days. Attention to detail and full time presence on the job site ensures high standards are met resulting in a sound, quality home. After 12+ years, we are as delighted with our custom home as the day we moved in. Recently, we embarked on a project to add a four-seasons addition and new deck and were excited to engage our original homebuilders once again. Throughtout the entire project, from original concept to detailed design to the final touches, Keith and Dusty were very accommodating and pleasant to work with. It is quite evident they take pride in their work and strive to make the building process hassle-free and enjoyable for the homeowner. We absolutely love our new addition! We highly recommend CRDR for your next building project!"

Tralawney Trueblood had this to say:

"I have owned two homes built by CRDR Homes and both have been of the highest quality. One was custom-built by Dusty and Keith for me and the other was one I purchased after it was built. I have been extremely happy with both of them and proud to show them off. In the case of the custom-built home, I had never been through the process of building your own home and expected it to be quite intimidating from stories I had heard from friends and acquaintances. The CRDR Homes team made the experience a total delight and walked us through every step. Everything was completed as scheduled, even allowing for some changes we made during construction. Dusty and Keith were on-site working and supervising every day, and making sure that the work was completed in a manner meeting their high quality expectations. Dusty and Keith were always accessible and working with them was great fun. Another telling sign of the excellence of CRDR Homes is that they back up their work with follow up contact making sure you are completely satisfied with your home. I highly recommend CRDR Homes without reservation and if I am ever in the market for a home again, I would absolutely be looking to buy one of their homes or build with them."

Greg & Mary Sharp had this to say:

"We just wanted to take a minute and tell you both about our experience in one of your quality built homes. When Mary and I relocated from the big city of Houston, TX to the somewhat smaller city of Cedar Rapids we were both concerned about what kind of quality we could expect in having a home built. Our fears were quickly put to rest and both of us can say with out any reservation that you build the highest quality home that we have ever seen. Your attention to detail is consummate with what you offer in your homes. Even your spec built home of which ours was one, is on par with anything we have ever seen before. We are attached to our home in Cedar Rapids and the total experience was mostly made possible by you. Thanks for everything you have done for us and please keep up the good work."

Gerald and Vickie had this to say:

"We just want to take a moment to tell everyone how delighted and impressed are with CRDR Homes during the construction of our new home. Dustin and Jody followed through on everything promised week after week we were amazed by Dustin, Jody, and the rest of the CRDR team. Their attention to detail goes far beyond what we would consider standard. We are also very impressed with the sub-contractors and their attention to detail and professionalism. We have certainly taken every opportunity to tell our friends and family about our experience with CRDR Homes and can't wait to show them our new home! Thank you for making this such an exciting and wonderful experience. You have truly built us a home not a house!"

Bridget & Chuck had this to say:

"Chuck and I would like to thank you for helping us with the addition of an entertainment center and bar to our basement. As with everything in our CRDR built home, our expectations have been exceeded in the quality of workmanship and materials. The attention to detail is obvious even in the small things such as how joints and corners are assembled. We also appreciate the speed with which the project was completed. What I thought would take a couple months has only taken a couple weeks. Jody's help in matching/selecting the cabinetry was perfect and her help is also very much appreciated."

"And just in case I haven't told you, I LOVE IT!!!"
