"Yay Team!! It felt pretty good to write that final check today. It was a long haul but we are really happy with the results. In four construction projects we've never really had anyone finish the punch list, except for you, so we are pretty amazed. The difference really is in the details and that made the whole project so much better. Michael was terrific as far as keeping on top of things and running the show. He is a very hard worker and so meticulous. He will only accept perfection and he noticed a lot of things that I did not. That made the finished product look beautiful. The other thing that was wonderful was how clean they left our house at the end of the day. In the past we've been left with a mess and it makes it really difficult to carry on with your life. I know it seems silly to clean up at the end of the day when it's just going to get messed up the next day. But when you're living in it, it gets overwhelming and it means so much to keep it under control.

We've already recommended you to several friends, so we hope they take our advice. Bill just loves the shower. Our water bill is skyrocketing because it seems like he's in there for at least a half hour. Everyday he says 'I love that shower!!!' Thanks for everything! We really appreciate it."

"We are so thrilled with the work that Philip and the guys at Swartz Builders completed in our home. They were meticulous with details and kept their work space so tidy. We had our staircase repaired, sanded and painted. Our rail and treads look absolutely beautiful and the railing is sturdy once again. Then they moved into my husband's paneled dark office. They painted it with high quality oil paint followed by a beautiful chocolate brown glaze. My decorator came by to see it yesterday and was overwhelmed by how amazing it turned out. The quality of their work is unbelievable, not to mention their kind, considerate ways made the process so enjoyable. They arrived every morning promptly at 8 AM, and contended with a dog and five kids with smiles on their faces. Aaron, the president of the company, called often to check to make sure everything was progressing properly. A wonderful experience!" Michelle & Bob Troy - February 2012


"The job was performed in an excellent manner! The payment schedule was extremely fair, the fairest of any contractor that I interviewed. The quality of the work was superb. The communication was excellent. The work site was kept clean and orderly. The work team was a group of true gentlemen, no swearing, no smoking and very, very customer focused! I tend to be a detailed person but the Swartz team out detailed me. If I had known about Swartz Builders before I would have done fewer DIY projects. I highly recommend Swartz."
Angie's List Member Troy - December 2010


"We interviewed approximately ten reputable, recommended, experienced painting contractors for a large and detail-oriented restoration project at our historic property in Franklin, Michigan. This included the extensive prep and painting of a main house, small guest house, and garage/outbuilding, in addition to significant wood replacement, matching historic trim, restoring window frames, addressing window and door seals, and coming up with various other solutions that complimented old world construction techniques, and addressed our insistence upon quality work. In our estimation, two or three such contractors seemed capable and confident enough for the scope of this job. But Phil from Swartz Paintworks stood above the rest with the most complete mix of knowledge, experience, confidence, communication skills, honesty, flexibility, and the foresight to set realistic expectations with the customer...and then follow through. We both work from home all day, so project management was more important than usual. Loud radios, profanity, yelling, sloppy work habits, inability to mesh with other contractors, and general jobsite chaos would be immediately evident, disruptive to our work, and not tolerated. Thankfully, the standard operating procedures of Paintworks (and parent company Swartz Builders) were a near perfect fit for our needs. The painting and restoration project lasted about three months during Summer and Fall 2011 - through vacations, inclement weather, weddings, funerals, etc. - and we can honestly say that it was always a pleasure to have this company's employees around our home. The work itself is absolutely exquisite and uncompromising; a perfect fit for the needs of this "antique" property. But a construction project should be about more than trading money for progress. This was a three month...experience...in overall contractor excellence. Congratulations Phil and Paintworks, and thanks very much."
