Tom Tallman and son, Allyn, WA 98524 Phone No. (360) 620-6614

By Don Leonardy, 1371 E Mason Lake Dr. East, Grapeview WA 98546, (360) 427-0546.    Tom Tallman and son, Trevor, recently completed one for one replacement of our lake side front windows, two sliding doors, replacement of our rotting front deck and two sides of our summer home exterior planking. We were very pleased with their outside work during very inclement winter months. Tom lives in Lakeland Village, Allyn so he is not that far away from Mason Lake where they like to work. We learned of Tom and Trevor’s expertise by observing their on-going complete restoration of a neighbor’s home. The 620-6614 number is a cell phone number Tom monitor’s very closely.

Bud & Peg Oberg, 432-3697, 1/09

We used Gene McClanahan to do new windows and siding. He and his sons are absolutely delightful to work with. They are honest, ethical, efficient, punctual and clean up after themselves. Their costs were very reasonable and the bids were less than others we checked with. They don't mark up the materials and allow you to buy them at their cost. He does all types of work both large and small jobs. He is really a craftsman and has a lot of really good and unique ideas. He can provide references. He can be reached on his cell phone at 253-514-9553. Bud & Peg Oberg highly recommend him for any remodeling, repair or new construction that you may have.

Roger Denny, 432-1407

I would like to recommend Roger Denny for any building or remodeling job, large and small. Roger built our house and an addition on two other houses that could not have been done any better. He lives in this area and has been building and remodeling houses for many years. His attention to quality is well known. Because of Roger's quality work, it may be difficult to find him when he isn't busy but the wait will be worth it.

Debbie Alexander, 206-551-1404

Rich and Janice Baird and Susanne and Jim McDonald said I should post about Scott on your site since you have a good resource for letting people know. Our contractor, Scott MacAlevy with Tanglewood Construction (360-427-6723) was great. He listened to what we wanted, was so easy to work with, and also used local sub contractors like the plumbing, electrical, flooring, etc. that did a fantastic job too.
