I wanted to thank Frank and all of crew for an outstanding job they did on my 2nd story addition-2 BRs and a master suite, full bath, great room, storage closet.  He also placed a new roof, shingles and farmer’s porch.  After a difficult time with my initial contractor, they have restored my faith in individuals in the contracting field.  After contacting Frank and him coming to my house he assured me that he could fix what was done incorrectly and go forward.  They repaired all the damage to my first floor caused by the first contractor.  He worked well with the heating person I already had in place as I converted from oil to propane earlier for the first floor.  His crew was professional and friendly all the time.  Frank visited the job site daily to check on progress and he and his crew answered any questions I may have had.  Frank also responded to any e-mails/phone calls in a timely manner.  I never felt like I was bothering them.   The crew was very punctual- arrived at 0700 and was gone by 4 pm.  The job site was always picked up each day-no trash thrown around. His subcontractors (electrical/plumbing) also did a great job.  I would definitely hire him and all of his subcontractors for any jobs in the future as well.  I lived at my house during the entire project.

  Steadfast Homes,LLC renovated our kitchen. Initially, when they came out to look at the job, they were very professional and listened to our concerns about how long we would be without our kitchen. They assured us that they would not leave the job until it was finished. Their quote was reasonable and we decided to hire them. In ten days, we were up and running with new cabinets, counter top, sink, plumbing done , and appliances installed. They put barriers to keep all the dirt and dust enclosed in the kitchen area and the rest of the downstairs clean. Every night, they left the kitchen picked up as well as their work area in the garage. The entire crew was courteous and professional and i wouldn't  hesitate to hire them again for any future projects at out house ! They were terrific!

We interviewed several recommended general contractors as we embarked on major home renovations for our property at York Beach. After much thought we settled on Frank Kunkel from Steadfast Homes ,LLC . It turned out to be a wise decision, since we were in Florida for much of the winter and Frank had to work from a constantly changing set of plans . when we arrived in Maine in late April we were pleased to see the progress that had been made .
Frank was always very accommodating an offered many suggestions when asked. After all our changes and Modifications the project was still completed on time . The finished renovation exceeded our highest expectations.
We highly recommend Frank Kunkel and his excellent team at Steadfast Homes for any building needs.
They are simply the best of the best.

Dear Frank,
This letter is long overdue but I’m writing it to thank you and your team at Steadfast Homes for the excellent work you did on the demolition and rebuild of my home. If you recall, we started this process in June of 2014 when you drew up the house on paper at my kitchen table. We had continuous challenges but you stayed the course and still met the deadlines.
I met with other contractors but none that I could honestly say I felt as comfortable with as I did with you. Your honesty and integrity was the key selling point and I knew choosing Steadfast Homes was absolutely the right decision. Your team was professional, efficient and the quality of the work far exceeded my expectations. You turned your house on paper into a beautiful cape.
I love my home and I have countless people stopping to admire it and ask who my contractor is. I would be more than happy to recommend Steadfast Homes to future customers. Please feel free to share this letter and pass on my contact information for any requested references.
Thank you again!

All at Steadfast Homes,
 
You did an amazing job on our entire first floor remodel. Sue and I are very happy with all your hard work. But what's more important is how courteous, professional and genuinely thoughtful everyone at Steadfast is. Your attention to detail even when you didnt have to shows your care and integrity. We believe this is your discriminator and really sets you apart from others. Your quality work and craftsmanship is front and center in our home . We look forward to working with you again in the future.
 
Kind regards

​​We had the pleasure of working with Steadfast Homes for our remodel in Kittery Point . After a long and exhausting search for a contractoe we decided on Steadfast Home for many reasons . The owner Frank is very professional , honest with time lines , competitive pricing and flexibility. One thing we did not know before we hired Steadfast Homes was what a great group of employees Frank has working under him. Everyone associated with our remodle was nothing but top notch and so easy to work with . We purchased a houes with the intention of remodeling the kitchen and that turned into ok lets do the bathrooms, ok lets tear down this wall and lets get rid of this closet, long story short we kept changing the plan and Frank and his crew were nothing but accommodating . All the subcontractors he brought in for our job were excellent ! Electrician's , painters and plumbers it would have been a tremendous headache if we had to hire all these individuals ourselves. We can not thank Frank and his crew enough for all their hard work and craftmanship. We love our new home
