This is the team to choose if you seek skill, honesty, on time design/construction. Northern Trends has thoughtful happy employees. You can trust their estimates not to inflate and their word is their bond. Thoughtful design work comes with your project. They show up when they say they will and follow through on the project from design through finish work. The work site is kept clean throughout. They stand by their work and will assure you are a happy return client. High quality workmanship. You will enjoy their creative ideas and the way they solve problems I will work with this firm for all my future needs. Duluth is lucky to have such a great builder!
These guys are real good. Their attention to detail is amazing. On a million dollar plus job such as this there will be errors, but, virtually error was picked up on immediately and corrected properly. The crew was always thinking far ahead of the current job focus to keep the job flowing from day to day. I lived across the road and was on the job site 4 or 5 times a day. It was very easy to work with these guys. Dave Nelson the general contractor for the job was excellent. We now have a home with 6 bedrooms, 5 baths, 46,000 pounds of marble and granite, 7,000 square feet of heated floor, and a thousand square foot of veranda and balcony thanks to these guys. These guys have earned my loyalty for life.
Northern Trends provided excellent service, high quality workmanship and performed a complicated job in a very timely manner. Highly skilled and qualified for any project!
In the past year, we completely remodeled the master bedroom, added a powder room on the first floor, and redesigned and completely remodeled the kitchen--all from top to bottom in our +100-year-old home. Northern Trends general contractor Jamie Panger oversaw all three projects and Jim Gaffey served as project manager. Their professionalism, attention to detail, work ethic, responsiveness to our needs, and problem solving ability clearly set them apart from other general contractors in this area.
Demolished old porch and exterior stairway. Constructed an exterior porch from architect's plan. Installed new exterior door. Outstanding quality of work. Outstanding communications with workers and project manager. Project finished on time and on budget. We would definitely use them again.
Northern Trends built a Carriage House for us as a vacation home, their attention to detail from day one was top notch, Dave Nelson the project coordinator spend hours on end to ensure the project was done the way we envisioned it. I would strongly recommend the crew from Northern Trends for any new or remodeling project.
