Stephen Black, Director of Operations – Numerex Satellite Solutions

I have personally worked with Alpenglow Builders and found them to exhibit the highest standards of quality, professionalism and integrity. I handed them a project that had a very tight timeline and they exceeded those timelines. Our needs were high tech and office space and they nailed the project perfectly. I will truly miss working with them and having them around.

Dan Ullom and Andy Rowe visited the site almost daily to keep the project on pace, and avoided costly mistakes. The project came in under budget and as a public company was much appreciated.

I feel that Alpenglow Builders are a very competent and professional firm and anyone who engages them for a construction project would benefit from their expertise and commitment to excellence.

My name is Shaun Shahan of Snowload, LLC. and have had the pleasure of working with Andy & Dan of Alpenglow in numerous build-out projects on the building located at 801 W Main in Bozeman, MT.

I have found the people at Alpenglow to be extremely professional, prompt, hard working, and easy to get along with. They have continually tried to work for solutions and overcome potential hurdles on projects, with their main concern always being their clients well-being.

I would not hestitate to use them again on future projects, and highly recommend them for any job they might be asked to bid. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

I am pleased to write this letter to endorse Andy Rowe and Alpenglow Homes in consideration for any upcoming residential or commercial building project.

I had the opportunity to work with Mr. Rowe and his company for the past six months during construction of a commercial building in the South Towne Square, at the corner of South 3rd Avenue and Kagy Blvd., Bozeman, MT. Hicks Engineering produced the structural drawings for the project, and Alpenglow homes helped bring the project to successful completion. “Building Number 1” is a wood-framed building incorporating many wall jogs, a complex roof structure consisting of various glue-laminated beams and a myriad of engineered truss types, and a large, battered wall. Additionally, a hanging mezzanine with a steel stair system accents the premier suite within the building.

Due to the complexity of the structure, Mr. Rowe provided the necessary coordination between the various design team members to incorporate the building aesthetic elements in compliance with the structural requirements. His subcontractors implemented their respective tasks with attention to detail, including maintaining a clean and efficient job site. Hicks Engineering performed frequent job-site visits to observe various stages of construction to evaluate plan deviations and document the completed work. We were continually impressed with the quality of work and willingness to implement required corrections to the structure to satisfy our high level of design detail.

Andy Rowe has demonstrated efficiency in his organizational skills, honesty in his dealings, and competency in his general contracting knowledge during my recent experience working with him. I enthusiastically recommend Mr. Andy Rowe and Alpenglow Homes for consideration in any upcoming building projects you are planning to construct. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact me at the number indicated above.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent job you did on the Weaver Residence and the commercial Building #1 at South Towne Square.

Both projects, extremely complicated as you are well aware, have turned out perfectly. It was so good to work with a contractor that was honest, understood the importance of paying attention to details and was flexible in the wake of changes and the continuing requests for design and construction assistance.

Design build projects are always a challenge because so many of the details are left to the builder to make sure the final product suits the needs of the owner as well as the builder and architect. Your patience and pro-active approach to producing a final product that makes me look good is very rewarding. Conversations with the owners of these projects reinforce what I am saying here as well. Both have indicated that your performance was exemplary and both would never hesitate to recommend you. I only regret that other builders can’t be as flexible, conscientious and responsive. That said, if you ever need me to visit with a potential client in further detail, do not hesitate to have them contact me at any time.

Again, I thank you for the excellent work you did on both of these projects. Keep in touch as you can.

My wife and I have remodeled our Lake home extensively 4 times over 20 years and built a custom waterfront home in Gig Harbor Washington in 1998. We recently finished building another custom home with Alpenglow Homes in Bozeman, Montana and moved in July 2009. We’ve had a good amount of experience with building homes and the Lion’s Ridge Camp lodge and cabin in Bozeman.

We could spend considerable time enumerating the qualities of Andy Rowe both personally and also professionally…it is all positive. When considering what a reference letter might say about Andy, this is what a prospective client would want to know:

Any building project has the potential for the builder/ client relationship to be strained by the end of the project. In fact, that is probably the norm. If we were to start building a home or any project tomorrow, and we were looking for a builder in Montana, from our experience, we would look no further than Andy. We would probably not even get competitive bids and try to figure out the “apples compared to apples” comparisons in that confusing construction bidding process…we would just “go with Andy”. He is honest and he does a superb job of managing the costs and his subcontractors and was more than willing to challenge himself and his team with aspects of the home we wanted that were out of the norm. He pulled it off perfectly.

We have told Andy, that he can showcase our Bozeman home at any time, and that we would welcome the opportunity to speak with prospective clients.

I write this letter in recommendation of Andy Rowe and Alpenglow Custom Builders. I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Rowe as the General Contractor to complete construction for our extensive office expansion and remodel project in 2011.

Throughout the course of the entire renovation, Mr. Rowe was a consummate professional. He was accurate in his initial assessment of the scale, cost and time required to complete our project. His record keeping was accurate and timely. He chose high quality subs that he managed well.

Our job was done with timely care, precision and minimal impact to our ongoing office operations. The friendly and professional way in which Mr. Rowe managed every detail gave me a high level of confidence that our project was being completed with quality and care. This allowed me the refreshing freedom to focus on my job without any construction oversight concerns. Mr. Rowe managed his oversight effectively and efficiently in order to always provide enough man power and oversight to complete this project on budget and ahead of schedule.

In addition and importantly noted, Mr. Rowe always performed work in a very safe, clean and tidy manner. He worked very well with the sensitivities of providing minimal impact to our office neighbors.

I highly recommend Alpenglow Custom Builders for any type of construction project. They are honest, reliable, caring, knowledgeable and have a high level of integrity with quality of work and attention to detail.
