“When I decided to renovate my kitchen and laundry room, I had no idea who to contact. I thought the best idea would be to contact Milwaukee NARI and look on their website for a contractor in my area. After talking with 3 contractors, I selected Badger Carpentry. When I met with Bob, he was an attentive listener and worked hard to understand my vision. I had a lot of questions about the whole process and he did a great job of explaining it to me, step by step. He also provided a calendar to keep me posted on the progress.

Jeremy, the inside contact, was always prompt in responding to my questions and emails. He was a delight to work with.

The staff of carpenters that work for Badger Carpentry were always very polite and considerate of my situation. They worked hard to keep the construction area clean and safe as possible. A very nice group of guys!

The subcontractors that worked on the project were knowledgeable and very helpful. Being completely new at this, I relied on them for ideas, colors and styles. Bob always stopped by each time a sub was there to check on their progress. He also check in with me regularly.

I am very happy with my new kitchen and laundry room. They completely transformed the spaces and have made them the focal point of my home. I couldn’t be happier and recommend them for any project you might be considering.”

“Our bathroom and fireplace remodel couldn’t have gone better! We have remodeled before and the schedule dates always seemed to be moving, but not this time. Once of the first things we received as part of our project was a schedule of dates for each step of the project and those dates were followed all the way through. Bob made an on-site visit for each of the critical steps to ensure that the workmen knew exactly what was expected. They were on time, professional and the workmanship was great. They made sure that our home was cleaned up at the end of each day.
Our contract was very clear as far as expenses went and we were able to stick to the budget. Jeremy kept us in the loop with all the arrival times and let us know what we could expect each step of the way. We could not be happier with the outcome of our project!”

“After an extensive search for a contractor for our kitchen and basement remodel, as soon as I met Bob, I knew he would be a great fit. Bob and his team of professionals really listened to our needs and approached our Wauwatosa colonial remodel project in a professional manner. Our project included removing a wall between the kitchen and dining rooms, removing a load bearing wall near our back entrance, removing several different types of flooring and replacing it with hardwoods, whole new kitchen layout including moving plumbing, re-routing electrical, removing a window and installing a gas line.

We also finished out our basement space which included framing, drywall and electrical. Our project was a major renovation which consumed our entire first floor and basement. We were very impressed with the organization, and coordination of the project. We were given a detailed timeline of the project and we finished exactly on time! For a busy family of 5, the communication and punctual responses they provided us was key to making the project livable as our home was being remodeled. We were very pleased with the outcome of our kitchen and basement remodel, the workmanship, attention to detail and dedication to our project really shows. I would highly recommend Badger for anyone looking for a quality contractor, great work!”

“Our old 100 year old garage sat atop a seven foot wall at the edge of our property. It was collapsing, doing its best to mimic an ancient fortress ruin. It had to be replaced.

Most of the people I contacted were intimidated by the tight working conditions and the scale of the foundation work that was required. Enter Badger Carpentry. We were extremely happy with the professionalism of Bob and his crew at Badger. The excavation crew had masterful control of their equipment, working in very tight quarters. The cement/concrete team did brilliant work. The carpenters were efficient and extremely competent. Roofing and siding guys also paid attention to detail.”

Gregory J. – Garage


“Being brand new to the Tosa area we hired a young contractor who understandably was inexperienced. In retrospect it now seems that he really disliked working with his clients and had a very hard time organizing the sub contractors in a timely fashion. After about half of our 3 story 1960’s home was updated, he offered to finish it for about 2X what it seemed like it would cost to finish. Needless to say we were stuck without a contractor and only half the work completed. So we looked for a more experienced company and thankfully found Badger. What set Badger apart was the highly organized, friendly and professional manner in which the company is run. Bob seems to love interacting with his clients and always finds time to return calls or texts. His staff is highly organized and respond to your concerns or suggestions. We are VERY HAPPY we found BADGER and highly recommend anyone with a extensive home renovation to give them a try!!”

“As a designer, rehaber, and former manager of a high end furniture and design store, I have been involved with many remodel and building projects. Badger Carpentry not only met, but exceeded my expectations. Bob Bates knowledge and attention to details is very impressive. Jeremy’s constant communication kept us completely informed of what to expect every day of the project.

Carpenters were skillful and very easy to work with and we were happy with the subcontractors Badger used. I would highly recommend them for a excellent remodel, done in a timely fashion.”

Judy – Kitchen and Bath Remodel


“We hired Badger Carpentry to build an addition to our home and to work closely with the company I hired to install an elevator in my home. The addition also included a ramp to make my home wheelchair accessible.

My wife and I have hired many contractors over the years for everything from bathroom remodels to full blown home makeovers. I can say, without reservation, that Bob and his crew at Badger were the most competent and communicative company we have hired.

From the start, Bob asked questions other bidders did not. His bid was fair and detailed. He showed an understanding of the implications of our job and worked closely with our architect and us to achieve our vision for the project.

Bob took the time to listen to us as the project progressed and helped us make decisions when the process required it. He did not question our attention to detail, but rather, encouraged it and was sure that the job met our expectations. We were always kept up to date with progress reports and photos of what we could not access.

The subcontractors that worked with Badger had a long relationship with the company and showed Bob deference as the project manager. They arrived on time an were always professional.

If there was an option for more stars Badger would certainly receive them from us.”

Richard – Addition with Elevator


“We hired Badger for our kitchen remodel. We were looking to get more cabinet and prep space utilizing the current space of our narrow galley kitchen. We wanted a classic timeless style. Bob from Badger and his assistant Jeremy are very professional and worked with us to achieve all of our wishes. They were on top of the project from the beginning to the end and kept us in the loop of every detail. Our kitchen was completed within the timeframe projected. We could not have picked a better contractor. We look forward to using Badger again for our future projects!”

“My wife Colleen and I ended up choosing Badger Carpentry for our “dream project” – a 2nd floor addition to our home with master bedroom, master bathroom and master closet renovation. We chose Badger because of their proven track record, their ability to deliver on time and within our budget, and because of the people. We were not disappointed in any of these areas!

The last requirement was most important to us since we wanted to work closely with Badger staff throughout the process so that we could utilize their expertise while shaping our vision of the renovation. We enjoyed working with Bob and the many contractors. When the construction began, Bob kept us up to date from start to finish, answered every one of my calls immediately and he addressed the few problems that arose quickly and to our satisfaction. We highly recommend Badger Carpentry.”

Andy & Colleen – Second Level Addition


“Our home has only one bathroom and the time frame to completely gut and rebuild the bathroom with everything new was 3 weeks, to be done while we were on vacation. We had no qualms about having them in our home while we were gone. There were no issues.

When we returned the bathroom was functional-they even had a shower curtain up for us. Naturally there were several finish items they had to do and some items we had to provide for them to finish but the job was completely wrapped up in a timely manner. The family was wowed at our annual Christmas celebration.

We love our new bathroom. After 20 years with just one sink it is heaven to have two! The bathroom fits perfectly in our 100 year old home. It looks fresh and clean but not out of place. It is exactly as I pictured it would be when we began this process.”

Tom & Shirley – Bathroom Remodel


“Bob and his entire team at Badger Carpentry are terrific. In addition to their great portfolio of projects, their professional and thoughtful approach to our project is what sold us on using Badger. From architectural drawings to final finishing, Badger made our vision a reality and all of it was done on-time and within budget.

We’ll continue to use Badger Carpentry for mid-size projects, as they are the most reliable resource I’ve found in the industry. Our next endeavor with Badger —a library!”

Erin B – Two-Story Addition


“The demo and remodel project that we hired Badger Carpentry for was a large project. Bob Bates built a timeline/project plan for each step along the way, which helped us visualize when things were going to be complete. Badger Carpentry was competitively priced and always fair as we made changes throughout the project. Moreover, Bob was always accessible and his team was always considerate of our needs. Bob and his team met and exceeded our expectations and we couldn’t be happier that we contracted our project through Badger Carpentry.”

“Being in the service provider industry, I think it’s important to recognize hard work and impeccable service when I encounter it.

This note is simply to recognize the hard work and effort of the two men you’ve had on site for the majority of the project to date. They are not only extremely talented and experts in their craft, but they are professional, personable, informative and helpful. These are qualities that customers remember and are grateful for and absolutely contribute to repeat business and referrals.

You’ve built a great company and as a leader, have employed some great people to carry out your vision of providing exceptional customer service and quality.

Cheers to the fabulous work thus far and hope and confidence for a seamless completion!”

“We just wanted to say thank you and pass the message along about how good of work Mike your tile guy did.

He came to the house everyday enthusiastic! More than doing a great job he also was very ice. Thank you to everyone involved, the bathroom looks great. We will keep you in mind for future jobs and also refer you to friends and family when we can.”

Gina K. – Tile


We started using your company to repair a job that went terribly wrong by another contractor.  Your company performed such a stellar job, that we have now hired you to do several projects for our home and business.  It is so refreshing to call your office and have such professional, efficient service along with great follow through regarding every detail.  Knowing each job is being handled by Badger Carpentry gives us peace of mind that the job will get done correctly the first time and turn out better than we expected.

We are so glad you are on board with all of our remodeling needs and look forward to working with you in the future.  Thank you for giving us beautiful areas to enjoy for years to come.
