Dear Joe:
The purpose of this letter is twofold; one is to thank you for a job well done and secondly to provide you with a reference/ letter of recommendation.
Admittedly, when we started our remodeling project, the size and scope of the project (1,400 sq. ft. second floor addition) had us excited but apprehensive and anxious at first. The thought of ripping the entire roof off of the house and basically building a house on top of the house, all while still living in the existing home was scary at best.

Once we started construction, it did not take long for you to remove any negative worries from our minds, allowing us to enjoy making our dream of building an upstairs come true.

In today’s construction industry, it is truly a rare experience to find a contractor who does what he says he is going to do, when he says he is going to do it and for the price he quoted. You really exceeded our expectations at all levels.

It would be unrealistic to think a project of this size would be without any problems at all, but again as issues surfaced you handled them quickly and professionally keeping us involved and informed through the resolution.
All of your crews and workers (especially Ron) were wonderful to work with and very considerate of the fact that we were still living in the house while all the construction was going on.

We are extremely happy with the final result, and rest assured if/when we consider the next remodeling project, you will be the first one we call. Feel free to have any potential customers, who might need a personal reference to contact us.

Thank you again for a job well done.

We couldn’t have been more pleased with Joe and his building crew. Aside from being very professional, he goes the extra mile to make sure his customers are satisfied. His crew is hard working, and takes no shortcuts. He made our dream master bedroom come to life. We would recommend Adler building to anyone doing work to their homes, this company is one your can trust. You will feel like you’re a part of Joe’s family by the time your project is done.

We would recommend Adler Construction to anyone looking to improve their home. We originally had Adler Construction add a dining room addition to our house, and had such a great experience that we hired them back for an entire second story addition.

There are several reasons for our success in dealing with Adler:
Integrity: Up front pricing ensured that I paid exactly what was agreed to in the contract and not a penny more. There were no hidden fees or late mark-ups for labor or materials which made it possible for us to do the improvements on a tight budget and ensure that we wouldn’t go over.

Fast and Friendly service: Adler’s tradesmen were trustworthy, professional and friendly, which is important when someone is going to spend that much time in and around your house.

Experience: We added a second story to our house in the late fall when there is the threat of severe weather. Adler strategically planned each step according to the weather and we didn’t get a drop of water in the house as they removed roof sections for the dormers.

Flexible options: You can do as much or as little of the finish work as your budget allows.

We originally planned to sell our house and move to a larger one in the area. We did the math and it turned out to be more cost effective to have Adler make our house exactly what we wanted, rather than to try and sell in the market and buy a new one. If you are thinking of moving, I would recommend you call Adler first to see if they can make your current house worth staying in!

Dear Mr. Joseph Sterbling,
We had a wonderful remodeling experience with you and your staff.
Your design satisfied all our requirement and met our expectation. Everyone you sent was very professional.

The quality of the material was so good that our bathroom looks like an elegant mansion bathroom.

For the price we paid, it is unbelievably good. We are very happy with your work.

Thank you for your very professional service.

Hi Joe, The basement remodeling was done very well. We could not be happier.
The project was done on time and on budget.

I would highly recommend Adler Construction for any job.

I thought my basement remodeling was a small job, but they treated me like I was spending millions!

Thanks so much. Wolverine Lake, MI


Dear Joe,
Sharon and I would like to share our story with who ever might want to read it.
We hired Adler Building Company to build a full 2nd floor and a 2-story rear addition to our home. On the 2nd floor we have 3 bedrooms, a full bathroom and a master bedroom with a full bathroom that has a whirlpool tub and a separate shower and a large walk in closet. On the first floor we moved our kitchen and family room into the new rear addition adding new cherry cabinets, granite counter tops and hardwood flooring. It’s like a new home but in the same neighborhood that we love so much. The home has been up dated inside and out. We were impressed all the workers from the planner to the last finish trim carpenters and how flawlessly everything was handled. When we hired Adler building we had no idea that we would see Joe Sterbling running this job from the beginning until the last inspection. We were able to live in our home while it was under construction and the whole job was completed in 99 days. Thank you Joe Sterbling for the enjoyable experience and the price was right!

I contracted Adler Building to add a 1,700 sq. ft. addition onto my existing house in Berkley.

They added a new basement, family room, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. Parts of the existing house were also remodeled and a few rooms were expanded.

I was very impressed with the quality of work and the quick response from Joe on any issues that came up during the process. If Joe told me he would get something done in a certain time frame, that’s what happened. He was very easy to reach and easy to work with during the construction.

The part I’m most impressed with is that Adler finished the entire job on schedule! We also stuck to the original budget with the exception of a few changes I made during the final phases of the job.

I plan on remodeling a rental house I own in the near future and I will definitely use Joe again for this job. I worked with 3 other builders before choosing Adler for my house. I won’t have to go through this process next time.

Adler Building Company,
To: Mr. Joe Sterbling
We want to thank you for our new roof. We thought that you were a very polite and concerned gentleman the day you came to our house to give us a quote on our roof. You showed us your license, material specimens and we had a pleasant conversation about the roof and you said you would work around my handicapped step-daughter’s therapy treatment days so she wouldn’t be inconvenienced.
You told me that after two months went by because of bad weather, that I could have a refund of my down payment, but I still was number one on your list for roof projects.

The men came to do the roof job knew of the weather situation. The every other day of rain or snow keeping them from their work. We had one nice day pop-up in the forty degree temps and they started working on the very slanted roof at 7:30 a. m. , tearing 2 sets of tiles off, some wooden shingles on the edges, repaired a rotted section of the roof over my kitchen and installing the entire new roof by 7:3- p. m. the same day. They worked very hard and steady all day long. I was impressed and pleased. It snowed the next day and melted all over the roof.

It rained heavily this evening and guess what? No leaks.
Thank you sincerely,


Your Comments: I have hired Adler Building Company to do remodeling on my home several times over the last 15 years and all experiences were great. The first was for a roof, next was for windows. Then I moved. I again had them do windows, then remodel the bathroom and the last job was the kitchen and laundry room. I found them very easy to work with, each job was completed in a timely manner and all turned out fantastic.
I would not hesitate to hire Adler Building again; in fact I would look forward to it because they make the process very easy to go through. I feel comfortable recommending Adler Building Company to anyone.
Thank you,
Royal Oak, Michigan


To whom it may concern:
In January 2000 called several construction companies to give us bid on changing a large attic space on our second floor into a master bathroom and closet. Some companies didn’t even show up, some were late and just two were on time. We decided to go with Adler Building Company to do the remodel although they were not the lowest bid but they seemed very honest and they have a good reputation. They went out of their way to create for us the most beautiful bathroom with great looking and quality products from the cabinetry, to the ceramics to the super glass shower enclosure. The workmanship was outstanding and Joe was on the job daily making sure the job was right. That was over 6 years ago and we still love it each and every time we walk into out new master bathroom. We are considering remodeling our kitchen next and we would not consider going with anyone other than Adler Building Company. We sincerely thank you for the job you did for us but we also thank you for being the honest and trustworthy people you are.
