The hall, the door and the stairs look wonderful. Everyone is oohing and aahing about your work, especially your attention to detail!!! I really appreciate it. Too bad we have to walk on that beautiful floor. We will be careful!!
Thank you again,
A nice custom job by Cliff. Excellent work.
This [dog fence] was definitely the best investment I have made in a long time other than the dog. It really helps with my training program and makes for a nice open-the-door-and-no-worries for the active, energetic and smart German Shepherd puppy.
Thank, thanks, thanks for such professional work on a challenging(!) job! You earned every penny and more!
We’re very happy with the work you did… Surely if we looked close enough we’d see the frugality we asked you for, but quite frankly, I haven’t noticed any mudding seams from where I am in that kitchen or dining room so to me it’s perfect. So even when you’re doing something cheaply for us you still add perfection to the job. Thanks. I love the fact we know the wall is secure now, too, level, and not molding all inside itself or full of snakeskins. 😉
Excerpt from Dale AKA Joe Homeowner
Some work prompted some very creative thinking and “out-of-the-box” solutions. Many contractors can do common or straightforward tasks, but when faced with a “curveball”, don’t always do the right thing. Cliff does not compromise with doing the right thing and his high standards leaves you with confidence and fine craftsmanship. More testimonials…
Dale AKA Joe Homeowner
Cliff Dutton has done various work for us, but this testimonial is specifically related to the biggest job he did for us. No homeowner likes to spend money on repairs. What started out being a reasonable sized project grew to be a rather large project. This was a case of not knowing the magnitude of the problem until you uncover it a bit. Unfortunately, the damage to the house was worse than we feared due to a history of water damage and “band-aids” that did a good job at hiding the structural deficiency.

At no point during the “marathon” project did I want anyone else on the job. I admit I became stressed at times, but not because of the work that was being done, but because the work HAD to be done. One of the greatest strengths Cliff has is his ability to solve a problem without sacrificing quality and minimizing costs.
Because we have such an old home, simple tasks can be often more complicated. During the big project Cliff did what he could to minimize the amount of disturbance he caused, and when the weather allowed, stuck to his schedule. Another thing I appreciated was his willingness to allow me to help with certain tasks to save me money. Because some of the required work was repairing previously improper construction methods, Cliff took his time evaluating the best choice of action.

Cliff really tightened up this problem area nicely. Nice and dry inside now. I highly recommend Cliff.
This roofing job involved adding the open shed on the back of the garage for storing wood and garden equipment. I am very happy the way the job turned out. Cliff used a very inovative approach to building the shed. As a one-man crew, he found a way of installing a 6″ x 8″ x 24′ beam without extra help or power equipment. The roofing job itself was completed with hardly any waste left over, for which my wallet says, “Thank you!”
Cliff took my plan for a shed and improved on it, giving it the strength to withstand the severe winds we experience and the snow loads that can occur in our area. He interjected that while it was intended to be a woodshed, it is filled with garden equipment. As we are now using wood pellets for heat, the space requirement for fuel is much less. I’m very happy with the way it turned out; it adds a great deal to the usefulness of the property.
My new garage door is awesome! It makes my life so much easier now that I can open it with a button instead of having to find someone strong enough to lift it.
Thanks Cliff for building my water trough. No more chipping ice or busting the ice in buckets. Makes winter work easier!! Horses like it too!
It’s so nice to have a very sturdy and attractive woodshed, but the best part is that I don’t ever need to shovel snow off the roof. Cliff’s design works perfectly. It’s also great to find an honest carpenter who sticks to the job at hand and is willing to work with a homeowner to get things just right. Cliff often arrives at a job site in his very fuel efficient Honda Insight (my favorite mode of transportation too) outfitted with, no surprise here, a trailer system perfectly designed to do the job of hauling construction supplies.
My parents hired Cliff to replace the roof on this old camp. He did a great job!
I am enjoying my well made table. Cliff did a very professional job.
What a difference the second window makes! So much more light and warmth! Cliff did a great job with tremendous attention to detail and excellent suggestions on different products available to complete the project on the inside (my job). I’m thrilled with my new windows and highly recommend Cliff for home improvement projects. Thanks Clifford!

Cliff, the bridge looks great! Like nothing ever happened. Thanks so much for the great job. I was also delighted to hear about the new Christmas lights – I was about to pick up some new ones so that was a wonderful surprise!
Thanks, Cliff for coming to our house the same day I discovered we were burglarized! As always you were able to repair the door promptly and with attention to detail. Recommend you for any repair jobs. All the Best for the Holidays.
