5.0 Hanna B. Fort Collins, CO

The communication was better than any other home project I have hired for. Jacob was honest and transparent the whole way through and delivered quality results at a very reasonable price.

5.0 Chelsea B. Fort Collins, CO

Jacob is hardworking, efficient, professional and a honest craftsman. I have worked with others in the past and felt like it was all about the money but not with Jacob. He was most concerned with helping us achieve our project goals and making sure we were getting what we wanted. Would highly recommend!

5.0 Jesse H. Des Moines, IA

Great customer experience. The project was completed on time and on budget. Jacob was great to work with from quoting to completion - communication, clarity, and professionalism exceeded my expectations based on experiences with other companies.

5.0 Fabian Eichentopf Google Review

Jacob has always been there for our various needs around the house, including repairing our walls, fixing our bed frame, and (dis)assembling furniture. He is diligent, skilled, and reliable. Whenever we need help, we call Jacob!

5.0 Samuel Google Review

Jacob is a very bright, driven individual who cares deeply about his craft and has great attention to detail. He is honest and up front the entire step of the way. Would always recommend him to anyone and will continue to work with him in the future.

Response from Company:

Thank you so much, Sam!

5.0 Timothy Bance Google Review

I hired Better Builds to redo my stairs and they turned out great! They transformed my outdated carpet stairs into beautiful black and white stairs that I constantly get compliments on. Service was outstanding, amazing communication and got the project done faster than I expected. Oh, and very good price! Planning on hiring them again for our store in town as we'll be needing to build some walls and transform a back room into a grooming area. 5 stars and HIGHLY recommend!

Response from Company:

Thank you Tim! Projects go smoothly with clients like you and Alex and it would be my pleasure to help you out at your store as well. I'll never get pet supplies anywhere else, Front Range Natural Pet is the best around!

5.0 Jesse Hupp Google Review

From knowing Jacob for over 10 years, I can confidently say that you will not experience a better service than you will with The Better Builds. Jacob has consistently demonstrated an elite level of communication, customer connectedness, schedule/cost adherence, and attention to detail on the many projects we have collaborated on. Go with The Better Builds - I can guarantee that you will get a top quality product with the best customer experience.

Response from Company:

I appreciate the kind words, Jesse. I promise to prove your recommendation in every thing I do!

5.0 Evan Else Google Review

Jacob, the owner of The Better Builds, is amazing to work with! He is very knowledgeable at his craft and is great at communication with his customers through the duration of the project. As someone who is also in construction, I know quality work when I see it. I highly recommend The Better Builds to anyone looking to make their home improvement dreams a reality!

Response from Company:

Thank you for the kind words, Evan. It is always a pleasure working with you as well!

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
