TESTIMONIALS

Greg & Cristy Slocum

“Building your own home is a daunting ordeal and Kloha contracting made it very seamless.”

“I was grateful that they had several floor plan examples, price lists depending on whether you were adding a garage, basement, etc. If there was something you weren’t sure of they offered suggestions to help you through all the decisions you have to make.

They helped us from the start with selling our house, choosing a floor plan and even finding financing. We never would have gotten through the process without each of them.

I would recommend Kloha Contracting to anyone that wants to start the process of building their own home. We want to say thank you to everyone at Kloha Contracting for helping us build our dream home!”

“The construction went well, Rich the project manager was very easy to work with.”

In May of 2017 We went through a home built by Kloha in the Saginaw parade of homes. We really liked the layout of the home but wanted a few modifications. After looking at several lots we met with Chad on May 17th. We decided to have our new home built in Gatehouse Manor subdivision. We asked Chad if it could be ready for the October parade of homes, he said it could and we signed the contracts. 

The construction went well, Rich the project manager was very easy to work with. Rich told us that they were not just building us a house they were building us a home and if it wasn’t good enough for his home it wasn’t good enough for ours. We were kept in the loop every step of the way. 

 All our questions were answered and we ended up with a beautiful home completed on time. I would recommend Kloha Builders to anyone if you would like a quality-built home.

“The contractors that Kloha builders have hired have been great to work with.”

“We are very pleased with how well the Kloha group has helped us first time builders, every question has been answered and every problem resolved. I’m a hairstylist, I hear many horror stories of clients and the builders they have worked with. I was very apprehensive until the first meeting with Rich Grundas, he made us feel at ease, every time I texted or called Rich during this building process he was right back in touch with me. 

Blessed to have such a great general foreman. The contractors that Kloha builders have hired have been great to work with also. I am telling everyone who asked, what a great experience it is to have Kloha builders build your home! Thank you so much!”

“Chad’s people fixed everything in a most timely and proper manner.”

“When I had my new home built by Chad Kloha’s company back in the spring of 2015 – people would say to me “wasn’t it hard building a home as a single woman?” I said no it was a great experience, because Chad guided me through the whole process, even going with me to pick out the really hard stuff like bathroom equipment, flooring, electrical (lights, etc.) – those are things that could have been a disaster for me if he hadn’t been such a support. His main office in Freeland made things easy for me as it is set up everywhere with different wood and stone trim, interior and exterior door and window styles, tile and cupboards styles as well, so all I had to do was walk through the building and take my pick! I was not hard to please in a lot of those items and I could visualize how they would look in my home so that part was very easy.

The hardest part was waiting for this pretty new home to be built, and I wanted so badly to just get moved in, which ultimately happened in October of that same year.

After the move, and during that first year of living in the new home it is very common for some things to go wrong, and Chad’s people fixed everything in a most timely and proper manner..thank you for that !!”

“We would, without hesitation, strongly recommend Kloha contracting.”

“When we married, we intended to live on our farm forever. We fixed up the old farm house, purchased adjacent property with a plan to have it paid for and build in 5 years. Then we bought a beautiful piece adjacent to that piece to build our new home. 

We spoke to many builders- 4, before Kloha contracting. Chad Kloha met with me, listened to what we wanted: a Craftsman style, single story ranch that was modern but would blend with the woods some with views available in all the major rooms. We wanted something, durable, easy to care and fairly handicap accessible. We plan to stay here forever. We love the outdoors and though we were tired of the maintenance of the 2 story old farm house, we did love the porches, the view of the sunsets our farm and the woods. 

Chad listened. He developed a ranch style home with craftsman appeal. This home has an open concept, hardwood flooring and matching trim. The front porch easily accommodates 2 rocking chairs. The back porch is off the kitchen and is easily large enough to eat any meal or sit for coffee in the morning. 

Since we farm, our laundry and mudroom areas were very important to us. We have a very large mudroom and a laundry room that any woman would envy. 

We were able to pick out all the flooring, pain, cabinets trim. We chose to upgrade on some and we were able pick our own lights. Our friends like our flooring, trim and lights so well they comment on it every time they return. That certainly made this house our own home. Rich Grundas made it easier for me to coordinate what we selected with him. He kept the project on track timewise and within budget. Brad has worked construction for nearly 30 years and did not find anything that was not up to code. Our home is very energy efficient and we were pleasantly surprised about the low electric and propane costs. 

I was able to meet all the contractors (we live next door). They were all very personable, professional and very hardworking and reliable. They obviously enjoyed their work. There maintained a clean job site. Everyone involved answered all our many questions readily. The contractors have all commented on what a beautiful home we have. Kloha’s subcontactors do stand behind their warranties and are quick to respond. 

Our 10 year plan for a dream home is done. We plan to have Kloha back for some additional projects.
We would, without hesitation, strongly recommend Kloha contracting.”

“We were very happy with our contractor and all his men.”

“We were very happy with our contractor and all his men. The work got done all on a timely matter even with the weather; first a lot of rain, then a lot of heat but all went well the house is beautiful and is just what we wanted. Thank you for asking us to take part in this testimonial.”

Roger and Carolyn George

We are extremely happy with all that you and your staff have provided to us!

“Chad, just a short note to tell you that Carol and I are greatly appreciative of the fine work that your staff has done! Rich has done a great job in keeping us informed and meeting his commitments on schedule and workmanship. We are extremely happy with all that you and your staff have provided to us! You can rest assure that we will be a great advertising agent for your Company in days to come!!”

Brian & Wendy Anderson

“From start to finish it has been a pleasant and rewarding experience working with the staff at Kloha Contracting.”

“We moved into our Kloha built home last September and we are extremely pleased with the finished result. The value, quality and workmanship are a step above the other builders we looked at. Chad made choosing the lot, floor plan and building materials a stress-free process. They lead us step-by-step through the building process and gave us several great suggestions and options on how to customize our home to better fit our needs.


From start to finish it has been a pleasant and rewarding experience working with the staff at Kloha Contracting. We would highly recommend their services to anyone thinking about building a new home.”

Vicki Legner

“I am happy to recommend Kloha Builders to anyone looking to build a new home.”

“Never having the experience of building a new home on my own I was unsure who to hire for the job. Upon speaking the different people I decided to go with Kloha Builders and I’ve never been sorry. Both Chad and his wife Kim were very helpful in providing information and good sound advice that I found useful and cost-saving during the process. They really seemed sincere in helping me get the home I desired while at the same time helping me stay within my budget. My home building experience was not the “nightmare” described by others, but a real pleasure. I am happy to recommend Kloha Builders to anyone looking to build a new home.”

Mike Vitale

“I’ve always talked up Kloha’s great service.”

“Dear Chad and Kim,


My name is Mike Vitale. In late October of 2005 my family and I purchased a home in the Dells in Lansing. I’ve always talked up Kloha’s great service but their service and response absolutely floored me. This great service makes me feel even more bad for those who don’t own a Kloha home.


Thanks!”

“The Kloha Team was a very efficient and stress-free way to have all of our family’s needs met. ”

“Working with Kim and Chad Kloha was an excellent experience that we would highly recommend to anyone in the home building market.

We had our previous home up for sale by owner, and then with another area realtor with very little luck and no offers.

Kim Kloha and her team had our listing for less than a week and had more showings in that time than we had in the previous six months. We had a purchase agreement on out house from one of the very first showings. Kim and her team made the entire process from selling our home, from listing to the closing and all the paperwork in between, extremely simple. All of our questions were answered timely and the sale was handled very professionally. We would strongly recommend anyone thinking of selling their home to contact Kim Kloha.

After meeting with several area builders, we found Chad Kloha’s honesty and willingness to work within our budget refreshing. Chad was not only able to show is several floor plans that met our needs, but was also able to walk us through spec houses to get a true idea how the homes would fit our family. Chad never pressured us to build bigger or outside of our budget. Chad was gracious with his time and attended to all of our concerns and questions. After selecting “The Oakwood” plan, Chad helped us design and decorate a home of our dreams, within our budget.

The entire Kloha Contracting team did a great job on our new home, paying particular attention to the small things. We were kept apprised throughout the entire build as to what was currently happening and what to expect next. The build went extremely quick and smooth.

With Kim selling our previous house and Chad building our new home, the Kloha Team was a very efficient and stress-free way to have all of our family’s needs met. The Kloha’s truly care about the “customer first”, and made us feel apart of their family during the entire process. We would highly recommend the Kloha Contracting and Real Estate Team.”

“We would encourage others who are contemplating the selection of a new home general contractor to contact, discuss, review, and consider your organization for their project.”

“Dear Chad & Kim:

It has been over three (3) years since we moved into our Kloha built home and we just wanted to drop a note to let you know how pleased we are with the result.

Although there are a multitude of things that can (and sometimes do) go wrong during the plan, excavation, build, finish, finance, and supplier selection process, these items have either been minimal or resolved in an expedient fashion and to our satisfaction.

Although the floor plan we initially selected was one of the many “spec” plans you offer, you were more than willing to work with us on the enhancements and upgrades we required that made our home custom to what would suit our individual needs and taste.

We were always kept informed on the status of the build process, expected completion date, and after construction began, how many of our requested upgrades would impact the budget. Especially impressive was your steadfast desire “not to proceed” on any upgrade until the cost/build ramifications were fully understood and agreed to by all. As a result, we were not surprised at the final closing with any hidden or mysterious charges. In fact, down to the penny, the final cost was what we had previously discussed and agreed to.

With respect to the visual features of the home, your suggested contacts of Mark for drywall, Jim & Steve for finish trim work, Greg for flooring, and Dan for sprinkler system, were professional and a pleasure to work with.
In spite of several weather and utility delays, as promised, the home was completed, the final paperwork was signed, and we took possession in less than ninety (90) days.

We would encourage others who are contemplating the selection of a new home general contractor to contact, discuss, review, and consider your organization for their project.

Regards!”

Scott and Paula Burmingham

“We were told how easy they are to work with and how they listen to your needs that is so TRUE.”

“We built “The Applewood” plan with the Kloha group which was our favorite plan but we wanted to customize several things including enlarging the master bedroom suite by taking the 4th bedroom out and making it 3 bedrooms. It turned out awesome. We were told how easy they are to work with and how they listen to your needs that is so TRUE. We had friends building with other contractors at the same time, they couldn’t believe we didn’t have any thing negative to say. Give them a call if you are going to build.”

Jerel Reif

“We built a custom home with Kloha Contracting and it was a great experience.”

“We built a custom home with Kloha Contracting and it was a great experience. They listened to our ideas and were very easy to work with. We built in the country which people had told us to figure 6 months to finish well that wasn’t the case with Kloha, they were done in 90 days. We highly recommend Kloha Contracting.”

Kirsten Mott

“I was a bit overwhelmed at the thought of building, but once I went through several of the models, I was hooked.”

“Last November, I found myself in a situation where I needed to find a home in Saginaw Township. I had a budget I needed to stick with, and a certain location I needed to be near. I also needed something that would be in ready to move in condition. I started looking at the real estate classifieds and going to a few open houses. After spending a couple months looking, and becoming disappointed it was suggested I look at building with Kloha Contracting, as they had several models in the range I was looking for. I was a bit overwhelmed at the thought of building, but once I went through several of the models, I was hooked. They showed me the different models and suggested different options and customizations that could be done and what they would cost. We narrowed down what I really wanted and then the only decisions were colors! Everything else was included in my base price – the tile floors, wood floors, carpet, bathroom fixtures, even some of the appliances.

My other concern was timing – I had to be in this house quickly. They assured me that it really could happen as fast as I needed – and it did. The Kloha Contracting staff was so nice and helpful. They answered all my questions and quickly resolved any issues. My issues were resolved in a timely manner.

I am very pleased with the whole experience and am so glad I went with Kloha Contracting!!

Thanks!!”

“The Kloha’s take great care in building homes, and building relationships in their homeowners.”

“It has always been our dream to live in a nice house with nice neighbors in a nice community. Well, our dream has become reality. We were able to buy a well-built affordable home in a wonderful neighborhood thanks to Kloha Contractors. The Kloha’s not only built a great home for us, but even after we moved in, if we had any questions or concerns the Kloha team was there literally at our front door to offer assistance. The Kloha’s take great care in building homes, and building relationships in their homeowners.”

Tim and Loura Dunham

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the professionalism, timeless and workmanship.”

“We started looking to build a home in the fall of 2004. My sister and brother-in-law built with Kloha Contracting back in 2001 and they were very pleased with their home.

We wanted to do some research ourselves prior to making a decision on a builder. We met with three builders to see choices available to us. It was very clear from our first time we met with Kloha Contracting they were the builder for us. What sold us was their commitment to making us a satisfied customer by helping us sell our current home, find financing for the building of our new home, customizing, answering questions, and providing timely and accurate quotes. They also had numerous houses being built in the area which we were able to walk through, this gave us an opportunity to find the plan that suited our needs.

We couldn’t be more pleased with the professionalism, timeless and workmanship that has been exhibited by Kloha Contracting team. We highly recommend Kloha Contracting for your new home.”
