Otten's Custom Roofing
I was so careful in choosing a roofing contractor to replace my roof because it's such an expensive job to have done; I wanted the very best since I didn't want to pay later for mistakes they made. But the problem was, I wanted the very best for the very least amount of money. And that is very, very, very hard to find. But I found that with Otten's Custom Roofing. They did an absolutely beautiful job on my house and shed roofs. Not only that, but they were also meticulous in finding other things that needed attention, and didn't charge me a lot for them either. For example, they found 16 different boards on the roof deck that were rotted out under the previous roof, so they replaced those with new boards, and for a very minimal fee per board. Additionally, and this was a HUGE lifesaver as it would have created mold had they not identified the issue and fixed it, they actually found out the reason why my previous shingles had been flying off all in one spot on my roof. They found out that it was because my bathroom vent was not venting outside through a vent in the roof like it should have been. It was venting into the attic, therefore warping the wood from all that vapor/moisture from hot showers. The warped wood was causing the shingle nails to come out and no longer stay in place. With the nails coming out of the shingles, they were easily blown off in a windstorm, which is exactly what was happening over the past few years; every storm would cause five or ten shingles to fly off into my yard (which I had Otten's fix every time and again, they did a phenomenal job). So they identified that problem, explained it to me in a way I could understand, and fixed it for a very cheap price! Now the bathroom vent properly vents out of the roof and there's a nice new vent on the roof to prove it! And now I don't have the water vapor on my bathroom window anymore! Not only that, Otten's also fixed my gutters, again for a very cheap price tacked onto the total invoice. They basically tiled them ever so slightly in one direction (called repitching) so that the water would flow out properly into the downspout since one side of the gutter was missing a downspout (basically to avoid water just sitting in the gutters if that makes sense). You can't even tell they're tilted unless you really look closely and someone tells you, but now it's great because the water flows in the direction it needs to in order to compensate for one side of the gutter missing a downspout (just another treasure left behind by the previous homeowners). I just love Otten's Roofing. And the roofers themselves are also very professional and nice. And they clean up beautifully when they leave. I would highly recommend Otten's Custom Roofing. I recommended them to my mom, and they even saved her thousands of dollars because she wanted her garage roof replaced because she thought it was too old, and they came out and looked at it, and told her that it's fine; it's actually in really good shape and there are no warped boards underneath that they can see. So they actually saved her money by telling her the truth, that her garage roof didn't really need replacing. How RARE is that in a company! Go with Otten's Custom Roofing and you won't have buyer's remorse like you might if you go with another roofer.

Otten's Custom Roofing
Very impressed with Otten's Custom Roofing. Yes, it was that time again for a new roof. There are many to choose from in the Yellow Pages, or you might get TV adds for roofing,windows,siding, and whatever companies. About 5 years ago, a friend had his roof done and the company that did was Otten's Custom Roofing. Otten's was recommend to him by a local realtor. Otten's did a fabulous job on his house and garage. ( complete tear down and install ) I called for an estimate, and Scott Otten came over, took a look around, took some pictures, and within a few days I got a great quote. Thought I might have to wait awhile to get the job done, but shortly got a call and the next day the crew was there. It only took 1 and a half days to complete the job. (complete tear down and install ) The crew did a great job with the roofing and clean up. About a day or 2 after the job, I noticed some staining on some of the shingles, and I called Scott about it. He shortly had a crew member come over to take a look, and all the stained shingles were replaced. This is the roofing company to go for. I highly recommend Otten's Custom Roofing.J Peacock

Otten's Custom Roofing
My experience with Otten's Custom Roofing was positive from start to finish. When it was time for a new roof on my home, I decided that it would be best to get several estimates. Otten's Custom Roofing's professionalism and the quality materials they use stood out from the others. The free estimate I was given was very reasonable, and that was what I was charged when the job was completed. In addition, they didn't require me to take time off from work and be there to provide me with an estimate unlike most of their competitors. Their crew was extremely hardworking, friendly, and they took pride in the doing the job quickly and well, down to and including clean up. I have received many compliments on the work they did and I could not be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Otten's Custom Roofing to anyone looking for a good, reputable, and very dependable roofing company.

Otten's Custom Roofing
I'd highly recommend Otten's Custom Roofing! They were extremely professional, did a wonderful job on the roof and gutters and left my place very clean afterwards. I have a dog and was concerned about nails, etc and I have yet to find one leftover in my yard! I was very appreciative of that! The roof looks fantastic and the new gutters with shields look great as well! They actually were able to come a week early as I had a flexible schedule and they had a last minute opening. I appreciated him calling and seeing if it was ok for them to come. I would recommend him to my friends, neighbors, and others that are looking for a new roof/gutters!

CARSTAR 76
After being clobbered by an eight-point buck last year, I took my Buick to CARSTAR 76. Of course the place looked great on the outside, but you never quite know what's on the inside. The minute that I walked in, I could tell that they really lived by their motto, "Relax, We'll Take It From Here." Mark and Erica VandenHout are the owners and operators of this CARSTAR collision shop and they really made the process easy and explained every step along the way. They gave me a FREE car to use while mine was in the shop and fixed my Buick right and right on time. I give CARSTAR 76 two thumbs up!

Koenes Auto Body
I picked Koenes out of a list of collision places I got from my insurance company from the great reviews it got on the web. I was not steered wrong - Koenes was professional, clean, organized and well-run. The staff were all pleasantn and well informed. They work well with the rental place and arranged for my rental car to be brought to the shop and I left it there when I was done with it - how easy was that! They did an awesome job with my car and also washed it and vacuumed it. I will be recommending Koenes to anyone who needs an auto body shop!!

Otten's Custom Roofing
As a former contractor, I'm impressed! Otten's was great to work with through out the whole the process. On top of doing a great job, they also installed our new roof lights while they were up on the roof in addition to a new bath fan vent--as I had these projects going too. The crew was conscientious and clean, and picked up as they worked. The roof was done quickly start to finish. Great job coordinating the project and very nice workmanship. Thanks Otten's!

Impact Collision Repair
My experience with Impact Collision was anything but smooth and trouble-free. The guys never had time to do it right, but they always had time to do it again … and again … and again. I kept getting my vehicle back with obvious damage unrepaired. Six trips over an eight week span to fix the front corner. Impact Collision was by far the worst part of my accident. My recommendation is to not damage your vehicle, but if you do then take it elsewhere.

Otten's Custom Roofing
We love our new roof! We own an older home and the roof needed lots of work, including a new deck and updating the old vents. The crew had it finished and cleaned up in one day. It looks great! We were impressed! The work was very professional. The best part about it - the price was MUCH lower than all the other quotes we received. I recommend this company to anyone in search of quality work at a great price!

Mr Roof of Grand Rapids
mr roof did new windows and siding for me. I did not know they even offered this work but my neighbor had them do his siding and it looked good. I got 2 estimates and their price was really good. I put Crane Board on and my house is cooler and more quite and looks good. there were some drywall pops that they warned me about but I think that is normal when they ban around on your hose so much.
Tips & Advices
Using a variety of tools and processes, many of which require specialized training, auto body mechanics primarily repair cosmetic and structural damage to vehicles after accidents occur. They can also enhance a vehicle’s appearance and performance by replacing and adding new parts to a vehicle’s body.
This depends on the severity of the work that needs to be done. Something such as paintless dent repair for a few small dents can take an hour. Whereas auto body repairs for damages caused by a major accident can take multiple days to correct.
All auto body parts can be repaired but there is a threshold for the level of repairs possible. Parts can be damaged beyond repair and would need to be wholly replaced.
Auto body parts can be made from a wide variety of materials, usually based on what the part’s purpose is. Vehicle frames body panels, bumpers, roof racks, and other items that need to be strong and durable are usually constructed from steel, which is known for its durability and resistance to rust and high temperatures. But aluminum is quickly becoming a popular material of construction due to its lightweight yet durable nature. Body kits and other aftermarket parts like spoilers and hoods can be constructed from one form of plastic or another.
Yes, the vast majority of car makes and models have aftermarket parts available for many of their components. But higher-end vehicles typically have less aftermarket parts available since they often use specialized materials and manufacturing processes that are difficult to duplicate for many aftermarket manufacturers.
