“We are so thankful for Tony, Tom, Dave, and the entire team at Tony Trapp Remodeling! My husband and I really appreciate all that this company was able to do for us! Our home had flooding damage and what we thought would be an easy fix turned into our worst nightmare. It was discovered that our home had major structural issues that needed to be addressed immediately. Tony and his team of people came up with a plan to rebuild our lower level safely and cost effectively. Our home is now rebuilt, completely finished, and we could not be happier with the outcome. Tony was always a phone call away and came out to meet with us many times to walk through the plan. Tom and Dave were great to work with and were always telling me the plan for that day. Their attention to detail was amazing. We highly recommend them to anyone needing home improvements or repairs!” – Lauren P.
“I’ve been relying on Tony Trapp Remodeling since 2006. They’ve worked on everything from our roof to our basement, and I completely trust Tony and his expert team to make the best decisions for our home. They are the first company I call when I have any repair, remodeling or maintenance project that requires reliable, responsible and professional attention. No matter if it’s a small maintenance project or a large-scale remodel of our bathroom, Tony Trapp Remodeling has proven that they can be relied upon to do the job with professionalism, honesty and integrity.” - Russ Feingold
“Tony Trapp is the best, period. That means he doesn’t cut corners, and doesn’t work with people who do. And, the best people cost more than the average people. But, you get more than you pay for, too. Much more. I demand to get something for every dollar. I am frugal, and I am more of a DIYer than most. I had several contractors come out to look at a number of jobs, and I interviewed a number of skilled workers across several trades for my house remodel. In the end, I didn’t hire any of them. If you’ve done some research, you already know why — good people are hard to find. Really hard. And that was how it was, until I talked to Tony about what I wanted. When he met with me and my wife, with him were the best electrician I have ever met, and the best plumber I have ever met. And they all worked with us to sketch out what they could do.” -David L.

“Work to be done was carefully written down, carefully executed at the promised time. Left the premises nice and clean. We are regular customers of Tony. Every time Tony visits, our life gets better!” - Roland & Ruth
“I can’t say enough about how pleased I am was working with Tony. Very professional. Thank you, Chris, for a great job on the install and clean up. I will definitely be calling on you for more of your great work. Highly recommended!” – A. Linderman
“You should be highly proud of your contractors! Chris and Aron were FABULOUS! Their work was most thorough, timely, clean, and professional! And they were kind, helpful souls on top of that! It was amazing that they could do all they did in the time they did it. I came home from a meeting to find them sweeping out the garage! BRAVO! Thank you!” – Diane & Sam R.
“Many thanks for your impeccable service!” – Stephanie
“You do excellent work. We always know the work will be top notch.” – Jill & Nicholas W.
“Tony Trapp always does great work. TT has excellent communication and kind employees. Tony Trapp illustrates what the next level of home remodelers need to become.” - James K.
“Tony Trapp and company have done three smaller jobs for us but gave them their utmost attention. Their staff was great to work with, cleaned up at the end of each day and finished each one in the time they estimated. I would highly recommend them to others and go to them again in the future.” - Pat K.
“So professional and responsive! Thanks so much Tony.” - Cynthie A.
“I was very impressed by the entire remodeling process. We received a thorough and professional estimate quickly. Our questions were answered and we were offered suggestions to improve our plan. Once the work was ready to be done, it was performed very efficiently. Aron was very courteous and professional! We are very happy with our remodel, would certainly seek Tony Trapp Remodeling for future work, and would highly recommend their services.” - William M.
“In my experience Tony and his team are reliable and perfectionists when it comes to quality work. We had soffits and fascia replaced on our old house in Madison and they were timely and efficient and it was obvious they really cared about their craft. Several years ago they remodeled our kitchen and it was the best investment we’ve ever made. It was a total redo, going from an early 1950s cobbled together kitchen to a wonderful modern workspace that is a real pleasure to use.” - Carole B.
“Chris and Aaron were knowledgeable, conscientious, and professional, and got the job done on schedule and with a minimum of disruption to my family. I especially appreciated that they were happy to answer questions about the details of the work they were performing. Five Stars! I’ll be calling Tony Trapp for my future remodeling projects.” – Jim
“Thank you for your work. Arrival was on time, work was completed quickly, set up and tear down of tarps was quick, complete and clean. They came, they worked, they cleaned, and they left the house better for it.” – Ellen B.
“Thank you for your professional, timely and courteous service. Aron did a great job.” – Elizabeth and Jessup
“Thank you, Tony, for your quick response and excellent service. I will recommend you highly to others.” – Barbara S.
“Tony Trapp Remodeling did an excellent job on our project. I was pleased and impressed with their attention to detail and the procedures they have in place to monitor the construction process. They communicated clearly and concisely throughout the job and there were no surprises at the end. The final invoice amount was exactly what we expected. I would highly recommend Tony Trapp Remodeling.” – D. Booher

“The evaluator/estimator gave careful inspection and clear explanation of what was needed. The work crew was knowledgeable and courteous. Return follow-up work was done promptly with consideration of our schedule needs. All in all – nice work!” – Homeowner

“Tony Trapp has done repair, remodeling, and carpentry work for us over the last seven years. He is particularly good at researching the problem and possible solutions. He and his helpers have been dependable, punctual, trustworthy, and pleasant. We have entrusted him with keys to various properties of ours. Some of the jobs he has done for us are: laying a new wood floor in our rec room, repairing our barn, installing a new deck on our home, insulating and correcting problems with our doors and windows, and changing locks, fixing problems in rental properties.” – Jane G.
“Thanks for the beautiful remodeling and repair of the living room. Our house is much improved and will be so much more comfortable now.” – Elizabeth W.
“Tony’s company has done two beautiful remodeling projects on our 50′s ranch home. We appreciated his creative suggestions in the planning state, so important when remodeling an older home. All work was done professionally and efficiently. His company is a pleasure to work with at every stage of the project.” - Homeowner
“Tony and Chris were great to work with. They kept us informed of the progress and treated our space and time with a lot of respect. The work was completed promptly and inside the expected budget. Most importantly, the finish of the work made the results better than expected!” – Eric and Marita H-O.
“We came to Tony for consultation about remodeling our home - reconfiguring space, enlarging and overhauling kitchen and bathrooms as well as adding a large garage. Tony connected us with a great designer and met with us multiple times as we pondered our options. Ultimately we decided to purchase a new home rather than remodeling but we really appreciated Tony's time, approachability, expertise, and flexibility as we came to this decision. We would happily work with him again!” - Kelly K.
“Words cannot express how much I love my new bathroom. Every time I walk into it, I am blown away again. Your wonderful crew were professional, patient with me, and so respectful of our home. Chris, Dave, Kathy and everyone else were such a pleasure to work with. I have given rave reviews about your team. Marc and I will certainly use your services for any other work we dream up!” - Barbara and Marc
“We were extremely pleased with the work you did on our bathroom and even more pleased with your professionalism and responsiveness. Most things went smoothly, but when there was an issue to be fixed, you were right on top of it and made sure it was completed and that we were satisfied with the results. Thank you!” – D. Thai
“We had two bath fans installed, one was a replacement and the other just never had a fan originally. The people who came to my house to give the estimate and to do the repairs were all very professional and pleasant. I feel like the work was well done. I will use [Tony Trapp Remodeling] again for my next project.” - Sandy G.
A dear friend referred me to Tony. She said, 'You may have to wait, but it will be well worth the wait.' Tony transformed the tiny cave-like kitchen in my 80-year-old home into a light and airy room that I love to work in. His crew headed by Chris became family. I am so grateful.” - Ann R.
“Tony and his team are dedicated professionals - they worked hard to make sure our kitchen remodel was done on time and within budget. They communicated with us throughout the entire project. We love our kitchen (the retro kitchen in the photo gallery) and would recommend Tony to anyone looking for a high quality remodel or repair.” - Leslie C.
“Tony Trapp coordinated our kitchen remodel in the summer of 2010. Tony made our lives so easy by managing all of the work involved from floor to ceiling and responding to our concerns and queries in an extremely timely and efficient manner. Having a kitchen remodeled is a huge and potentially nerve-wracking undertaking. Having Tony at the helm of this 'voyage' was such a relief. I had heard so many kitchen remodel tales of woe, and our experience was the complete opposite. Tony explained everything clearly and presented a very manageable timeline which he managed to make happen. After the kitchen was completed Tony was always available to tie up any little loose ends or answer questions about care and maintenance. Tony also introduced us to our kitchen designer, Katie Merical, who was able to envision a miracle conversion from a 1949 'homemade' kitchen to a very contemporary, functional and beautiful kitchen in which it is a pleasure to cook. I love my kitchen. I can’t say enough good things about Tony and his co-workers. They do it right.” – Carole B. & William R.
“Tony and his crew recently finished a major kitchen remodel for us. We are thrilled with the results! I have collaborated with Tony on other projects and I'm pleased to say I have had the same wonderful experience as our mutual clients have had. My project was run with a high degree of professionalism and craftsmanship. I'm just sorry I waited so long to do the project!” - Cathy Driftmier
“Chris and Aaron worked magic on our basement bathroom remodel, and all the sub-contractors were excellent. Paul was very creative in thinking about how to design the job in such a small space with many constraints. Then Chris and Aaron made it all come together, making revisions as needed. Everyone was kind, considerate and professional, with no detail too small for their attention. We highly recommend Tony Trapp.” – Barbara
“If anyone is looking for home repairs, then look no further than Tony Trapp Remodeling. We were so happy with their services. Prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable are the three best words to sum them up. Contractors generally get a bad rap for being poor communicators, but Tony Trapp Remodeling is an exception.” - Mike G.
“We are VERY happy with the repair work that was done on our older home which had a few long-standing repairs. The nasty hole that had to be cut into our kitchen ceiling because of water damage and previous bad patching made me question if it could ever be adequately repaired, but the ceiling is now totally repaired, looks like a brand new ceiling, not a crack or a bump. The cracks in our plaster walls also now show no sign at all that they were ever there, now smooth and perfect. The estimate for the job was done very efficiently and the workers were very professional and friendly. The result was exactly as we had hoped and we would definitely recommend Tony Trapp to anyone. Thank you!!” - M. Fiore
“I needed a cable outlet installed on the principal floor of our home so that we could move our telephone answering machine from the basement. This was not an easy project; two other contractors, including the cable provider, couldn’t figure out how to get it done. TTRR came over and determined that a member of the team, Bill, was the man for the job. Within twenty minutes Bill figured out three different ways to get the job done on my budget. We now have our answering machine on the main floor where it should be. What’s more, to make it all happen, Bill shoveled snow, moved furniture and even fixed a perpetually sticking door. Tony, you and your team are more than expert craftsmen and technicians, you are practical problem solvers who do it all with a smile. I recommend your services highly.” – B. Jenkins
“We were very pleased with the service we received from Tony Trapp Remodeling. The work was done in a timely and efficient manner, with a lot of attention shown to cleanliness, detail and appreciation of my schedule. The guys were all very polite and easy to work with. There is no doubt in my mind that we will use TTRR again for our household repair and renovations.” – S. Robinson
“Couldn’t be happier!! From arriving on time to leaving the work area cleaner than before they came, Chris & Aron were terrific!” – Homeowner
“I’ve got a few more projects to do around the house. You can bet that I’ll be calling Tony Trapp Remodeling again. Count on it!” – D. Solie
“Tony and his crew did a great job, cleaned up after themselves and were very dependable. We would certainly use them again and I’ve recommended Tony to other people.” - J. M.
“I love my little deck – it’s such a nice addition to my backyard, and your workmanship is outstanding.” - Julie
“We hired Tony Trapp and his team to replace our patio door from the 1980s. It was a difficult size to find and we had a deadline to meet. I never had a moment of stress. I felt everything was under control through the process. Everything promised was delivered on time and looked great. Thank you!” -Tony and Kristen C.
