Praise for New Prairie

Customer satisfaction, from small home remodeling projects to large and complex renovations, is a cornerstone of our business. Here’s what some of our customers have said about our work quality and our team:


“It has been a real pleasure working with you on our major remodeling project. Your work product is excellent and your organization skills are apparent. The attitude of everyone at NPCC has always been warm and friendly. Even though Covid threw us all a curve, you quickly and successfully worked around it. Your advice, when we had to consider alternatives, was always very helpful. Thank you all.”
Dan and Christy W.



“I am extremely pleased with the service I received from New Prairie Construction Company.  Everyone was wonderful — from Jill, who did the appraisal, to Mark and Dane, who worked on the project. I was kept informed throughout the entire process, which I truly appreciated. I would highly recommend this company to others who are in need of construction services at their home or business.”
Joyce W., Champaign



“New Prairie was fantastic. I would use them again without hesitation. From the planning to the finished bathroom and master closet they were respectful, organized, efficient, and on target with both the time and the estimate. We are extremely pleased with the results and would highly recommend them for remodeling projects.”
Maureen & Hal, Champaign



“You and your crew are among the most talented, creative, and nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.”
Paul Idleman, Director, Champaign County Historical Museum



“New Prairie Construction is the best. Not only are they knowledgeable and efficient but they treat your home as if it is their own. We have used them for large and small projects and have received the same great service on every sized job. We intend to contract them over and over again!”
James & Jill Zager, Champaign



“Thank you so much! Everything looks great!”
Mick Woolf, Station Manager, WEFT



“As retirees, we keep an eye on the budget, and New Prairie offers us a full range of construction services in which we can have confidence. New Prairie work teams are dependable, disciplined, and creative in their craft. With New Prairie, our dream of home is becoming a reality.”
Jim & Deloris Holiman, Urbana



“When looking at the various bids, New Prairie stood out for not only being thorough but also showing regard for the integrity of the building. They were genuinely interested in the quality of the project — which stood out when comparing them to the others. I highly recommend them for any home improvement or remodeling project.”
John Dunkelberger, Urbana



“I chose New Prairie to remodel my kitchen and dining room several years ago because I had seen the quality of their work at the former Wilbur Mansion. The kitchen was entirely gutted and there was also a wall taken down. Julie and the entire crew were great and helped me with some of the design issues that perplexed me; the remodel was completed, as promised, before Thanksgiving.

When it came time to remodel the bathroom this year, there was no question in my mind that I wanted New Prairie again. They minimized the day-to-day inconvenience of having a bathroom “down” and kept me informed of the progress.

I’m extremely pleased with the way the bathroom turned out. Although I have absolutely no plans to sell my house in the near future, I know that it will be a huge selling point to be able to say that my house has the ‘New Prairie touch.’”
Susan Herrel, Champaign



“We found Julie and Jill to be very flexible and accommodating to our needs as we did some major renovations to our new home prior to moving in. They allowed us to do the destruction and construction that we were able to do, filling in the gaps in our abilities with their own skilled workers. They coordinated the services of their workers and subcontractors, keeping us apprised of their schedules so that we would have our portion of a job done prior to the contractor’s arrival to do their part. We could not have accomplished our extensive renovations without the help and support of New Prairie Construction.”
Marcey Goldstein and Tom & Barbara Trumpinski, Champaign



“NPC was fantastic on all levels! The work is beautiful and skillfully done. The various workers were respectful of our home, ideas, and wishes. We really liked that you took the time to discuss the job thoroughly and consider all aspects of the job with us. We couldn’t be happier.”
Happy Customers, Champaign



“The New Prairie folks have done virtually every kind of project around our house imaginable — putting on a new front porch, putting a foundation under our kitchen (it was mysteriously absent) and then a ceramic tile new floor, putting in a brick front walkway, redoing our bathroom tub surround to resolve an old insoluble mildew problem, closing off our crawl space to prevent varmints from nesting there, putting up new drywall and painting our downstairs bathroom — to name a few. They are professional, reliable, thorough, reasonably priced, and a delight to work with. The subcontractors they work with are screened for these same qualities. I would heartily recommend them to anyone wanting to do anything from a major remodel to a small but critically important house project.”
Tom Seals & Ruth Wene, Urbana



“Jill and Julie put a huge deck on our house with a very long railing. A few years later, they replaced some siding on our house, and noticed the railing was sagging a little. They were not satisfied with their own railing work and fixed it even though I had not noticed or complained about it.”
Traci E. Nally, Champaign



“Last year I found a man who could locate and treat the spot where the rain was coming in. He gave me a list of three or four companies that he thought would be good [to repair the water damage]. Then he said, “You want this one,” pointing to your name on the list. He gave you a wonderful recommendation, and then added that you were also able to do the old fashioned plastering. That was what I wanted to hear! I had to wait for an available time, since you were quite busy (also a good recommendation).

When MY time came, you arrived, sealed off the room from dust and debris, and were ready to work. You were all such good workers, the time flew, the work got done, and I was extremely pleased. So pleased that I currently go into that room and smile at the walls.”
Elizabeth Beberman, Champaign



“New Prairie made kitchen remodeling as stress-free as it is possible for a stressful experience to be! From start to finish, they were encouraging, helpful, and utterly professional in planning and then carrying out this large project, offering expertise yet always listening to us. They were invariably considerate of our family schedule and needs, and they never made promises that they couldn’t fulfill. The work was meticulous, the results are beautiful, and the most honest assessment I can give is that we won’t even consider going elsewhere for our next remodeling project… and the next, and the next…”
Marilyn Booth, Urbana



“As a homeowner and former rental-property owner, I’ve worked with contractors off and on for more than 50 years. I can say without hesitation that the New Prairie staff were the most careful, considerate, meticulous group I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.”
A Client from Savoy



“Our 600 square foot 2003 addition was built by New Prairie Construction and its subcontractors. We replaced all the windows and siding, remodeled two of the bathrooms, and replaced most of the doors. The workers kept on the job until it was done, they kept the mess isolated from the rest of the house, and they paid attention to what they were doing.

They take responsibility for their work. For example, a new window was accidentally scratched shortly after installation. The damage was slight, so we might not have noticed it for months, but they promptly reported it and replaced it, at their expense. The end result is high-quality housing, and we intend to hire them for our future remodeling projects.”

Dan Grayson & Carol Livingstone, Urbana



“We first hired New Prairie Construction in 2005 to restore and remodel our 1874 family farm house in southern Vermilion County. We were looking for someone with extensive restoration experience, who we could trust to follow through on the entire four year project.

We feel very fortunate to have New Prairie working on the house. Every member of NPC we have met exhibits a personal commitment to their work and treats our house just like it is their own. Their commitment is apparent in the results we have seen.”
Minerva & Jeff, Dallas, TX/Vermilion Co., IL



“New Prairie has done a number of projects on our house, from roof and wall repair to installing linoleum and floor tiles. We’ve been pleased with their creative solutions to tricky problems, their organization, and the quality of their work. It’s always a pleasure to have them in the house, which is rare in this kind of business.”
Cope Cumpston & Walter Matherly, Urbana



“We’ve had New Prairie remodel our kitchen and our bathrooms. From start to finish, the planning, communication, and workmanship was very professional. The workers from New Prairie and the subcontractors were friendly, courteous, and experts in their craft. We couldn’t be more pleased with the final product.”
Long-time satisfied customers, Urbana



“The staff and management at New Prairie Construction are all people of integrity, which translates into attention to details and a quality finished project. Highly recommended!”
J. L. Lattimore, Urbana



“We are delighted with the results of the bathroom remodeling New Prairie Construction (NPC) did in our home in December 2006. It was a joy to work with the leadership team of NPC. They listened carefully to what we wanted, and they made excellent suggestions, which resulted in a finished project exceeding our highest expectations.

NPC is superbly organized and has a diverse, well-trained team of workers for whom perfection is an everyday standard. Furthermore, the performance of the specialty subcontractors engaged by NPC was excellent. Two other qualities of NPC are truly exceptional: schedule promises are honored, and the job site is cleaned up at the end of each workday! Even though our project was small in comparison to the overall portfolio of NPC, we never felt neglected. We highly recommend New Prairie Construction.”
Sheila & Jeremiah Sullivan, Urbana



“New Prairie Construction installed a new bathroom in my 50-year-old home in Urbana. I was pleased with the work in every respect, from our initial consultations to the finished room. The work was done to a high standard, New Prairie offered welcome advice on a couple of questions I had about how to proceed, and I was particularly happy that they worked with me to meet a specific deadline.”
Sally Weeks, Urbana



“We have often called New Prairie Construction to have work done at our home. We have been pleased with the projects completed and appreciate the excellent quality of their work and materials and their dependable workers. We highly recommend New Prairie Construction!”
John & Eva Scouffas, Urbana



“The quality of New Prairie’s work was amazing. We are very pleased. Unlike some contractors, NP’s communication also was excellent, so we never had to wonder when our project would start or finish. We would never think of hiring anyone else.”
Anna Barnes & David Riecks, Champaign



“Jill and Julie are friends of ours and that was why we first used them. Notwithstanding our personal connection, New Prairie has the best carpenters in town! We have used them for kitchen remodels, new garage windows, stair railings and even gutter work. Their crew is as good as they get and are attentive, cordial, and responsive. Friendship was just the introduction; we recommend New Prairie Construction and Jill and Julie and their crew to our other friends all the time.”
Ann & Dave Bechtel, Champaign



“I’m very happy with everything! I can actually stand in front of my windows/French doors on a cold windy day and not feel a draft! Wow! Plus, I love my little back porch. Who knew that a few square feet with a roof over it could feels so nice?! (OK, that’s probably enough exclamation marks, but seriously I am really happy with everything.)

Please tell everyone ‘Thank you’ for the outstanding job they did. Their attention to detail and excellent workmanship was impressive and they were great to work with.”
Happy in Mahomet



“New Prairie Construction did outstanding work installing a new shower for me. Jill, Julie, and the people working for them were all very professional and courteous. It was wonderful doing business with people who explained everything and who I could trust inside my home.”
Esther Patt, Urbana



“We have already recommended New Prairie to friends planning to remodel. When planning Julie gave us great ideas and we are thoroughly enjoying our transformed kitchen and bathroom.”
Donna Mason, Urbana



“I own my own house and two rental properties. Jill and Julie started doing work for me about 20 years ago on the first property I owned, even before they became New Prairie Construction.

In the past 20 years, they and their crews have rebuilt two porches for me, torn out and replaced damaged ceilings, remodeled bathrooms, and done other general repairs. I have always found all members of their crew to be honest, fair, straightforward, and a delight to work with. They also work closely with other experts in such matters as roofing and masonry repair when the job requires that, and I’ve found the work of those people to be very satisfactory, as well.

I recommend New Prairie Construction without reservation!”
K. Keener, Champaign



“High quality, integrity, thorough planning of the construction process — these are a few of the wonderful qualities the New Prairie staff brings to their work. They offer creative solutions and on-target assessments of how best to solve building challenges. From making sure that they keep work areas organized and neat, to keeping me informed about their work schedule, to making finished work blend seamlessly into existing construction (so important for my 55-year-old home), New Prairie has consistently been great to work with.”
— Sue Ingles, Champaign



“We’ve worked with New Prairie Construction on two different home remodeling projects. Our experience in both cases was very positive. Staff and crew at all levels were responsive to our needs, responsible in getting the work done in a timely fashion, attentive to detail, and sensitive to our house schedule and routines. The completed projects were gorgeous in both cases, exceeding our expectations and were completed in the time and cost frames provided. We highly recommend NPC to others and wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again!”
Just As Happy the Second Time, Urbana



“New Prairie is very careful in their work and in meeting their clients’ needs. We’re very happy with their quality work and personnel. Not your typical contractors.”
Peter & Debra, Champaign



“One of New Prairie Construction’s early projects was a room addition to my house, and they recently remodeled my bathroom. I can recommend them without reservation. The owners and their employees are not only skilled carpenters — they are artists and consummate professionals who care about the quality of their work and a pleasing result. They are just very responsible, considerate and nice folks to work with as well.”
Nancy Stagg, Urbana



“From time to time, over the past twenty years, we have called upon New Prairie Construction Co. for help in maintaining our home near Urbana, Illinois. Our experience has revealed this construction company to be reliable, capable, honest and friendly. We have been happy with their work and we plan to call upon them again whenever we need further help.”
Henry & Alice Hadley, Urbana



“Your workers were the most careful and courteous workers I’ve ever had working on a project. Their clean-up was outstanding.”
Satisfied Customer, Urbana



“When I told people New Prairie was re-plastering the ceiling, I consistently heard things like ‘They’ll do it right,’ ‘You have nothing to worry about,’ ‘They are the best,’ ‘I wouldn’t trust anyone else,’ and on and on. It was quite impressive. Fantastic reputation!!!”
Pam S., Champaign



“New Prairie folks are as picky and careful about the work they do in your home as they would be in their own.  We are always more pleased and happy with the outcome than with our original ideas.”
Sims Family, Urbana



“Our challenge was a 1920 bungalow that needed new windows. How could we replace the old windows but stay true to the aesthetic of the house? We turned, of course, to New Prairie and got just what we wanted: thoughtful planning, good quality materials, and truly excellent service and installation. The casement windows required that the wood interiors be carefully stained to match the existing woodwork. The person who applied the stain did it with an artist’s eye. And the crew that installed the windows crossed every “t” and dotted every “i” to make the fit perfect and authentic. The work was done on time, and, as usual, the crew cleaned up every day, communicated clearly and regularly, and took great pride in their work. Need I say we are very, very pleased with the results?”
Very Pleased Customers, Champaign



“We are extremely pleased with New Prairie Construction, and turn to them for work that has needed to be done around our house. Julie’s initial inspections are always friendly, timely, and very thorough. We believe that the work will be done in a professional, prompt manner, and we have the highest level of trust in them and their friendly employees.”
Teresa Mok & David Chih, Champaign



“We have had the pleasure of working with New Prairie Construction on several occasions. The bigger projects have included a major bathroom remodel and the painting, staining, and installation of a new front door (about which we receive frequent compliments). Working with the folks at New Prairie has always been a great experience; they are talented individuals, who approach each project (large or small) with the utmost professionalism and care. We would highly recommend New Prairie Construction.”
Lesley Millar & Lori A. Nicholson, Champaign



“We are a family with two daughters and outgrew our home when they became teenagers. We love our neighborhood and wanted to stay here, but we were anxious about the disruption of remodeling. From Julie Birdwell’s first visit with us to discuss the addition, to the end of our remodeling, we were very pleased with the consideration and respect of the New Prairie employees and the quality of their work.

We were impressed with the New Prairie employees’ attention to detail and their conscientiousness in cleaning the work site each day. We enjoy our new sunny room every day and we are so pleased we chose New Prairie Construction Company for the remodeling.”
Clyde & Cynthia Sweet, Mahomet



“Your people are great!  Could we adopt Jen?”
Two more satisfied customers, Champaign



“New Prairie Construction has performed three major renovation projects on our 1939 house in Urbana over the last five years, and we have been extremely happy with each one. They did beautiful work and met their schedules and estimates. In addition to that, they are efficient, tidy, thoughtful and just plain nice people.

Best of all, they’ve just finished the amazing transformation of a dirty dark attic into a beautiful, bright, big new room. This involved skylights, electrical service, lighting, insulation, heating and AC, walls, a floor, and relocation of the entry to the room. It was a masterful job of design, estimation, coordination, and scheduling.

All of this was done with a generous willingness to answer questions and offer us advice and ideas for every aspect of the work, and even for some unrelated issues in our house. We can recommend New Prairie Construction without reservation.”
Robin Sahner & Bruce Reznick, Urbana



“We are very pleased with the workmanship on our remodeling projects. The outcome is just as I envisioned it in every detail — and no detail was overlooked. The crew is very responsible, responsive, and interactive among themselves and with me; any question I raised was taken care of immediately; anything that came up proved readily resolvable by New Prairie. I have no hesitation in recommending this company on any project.”
Anne Payne, Champaign



“New Prairie has done many things for us — from moving walls to installing floors. Every time, the work was completed according to our schedule and with a minimum of upheaval. No hustling from one job to the next while we twiddled our thumbs. The appropriate permits were obtained and everything looked great when completed. Even the clean-up was more than I expected. Every job done by New Prairie is beyond expectations.”
Kathie Spegal, Champaign



“I have two words that describe our experience with New Prairie: Quality and Respect. Quality was outstanding! Our room turned out beautifully and attention was paid to every detail. We appreciate how clean and orderly everything was kept!”
Our sincerest thanks, Champaign



“From the first contact-to the final execution of work, New Prairie Construction exhibited high standards, clarity of communication, professionalism, sensitivity to client’s needs, and excellent teamwork and skills. We rate them an A+.”
Juanita & Jane Gammon, Champaign



“I chose New Prairie Construction because of the four bids I obtained, they demonstrated the best analysis of the problem, a sincere interest and involvement in doing the job well, and were enthusiastic and pleasant. Their proposal was careful and precise. All workers were friendly and did a careful and skillful job.”
Mrs. H. Banks, Champaign



“New Prairie provides excellent service, high-quality construction, and a wonderful ability to upgrade and remodel while maintaining a home’s original character. And their crew members clean up the job daily to minimize the mess and disruption. They are the tidiest contractors we’ve ever had!”
Diane Marlin, Mahomet



“New Prairie is a construction company with brains and heart. They know beautiful craftsmanship and think carefully about what they do to your home — they never treat it as just another construction site. They are pet and garden sensitive, and meticulous in honoring time commitments — they didn’t keep us waiting once. With NPCC the pain of remodeling was almost a pleasure, and the finished product is deeply satisfying. They are a team worth every penny.

I can’t speak highly enough of NPCC workers: the very elegant access doors made by Chris for me (the one in the bedroom wall is beautiful); Jenn’s mail-flap (charming!); Gail, Nick, Phil, and Amy’s work on the doors; and special accolades to Mark and Tony for window installation and PAIN-FREE (for us!!) furniture moving. Thank you very much!”
New Loyal Customers, Urbana



“This is the second job that New Prairie Construction has done for us. Again, they impressed us with the timelines and quality of the finished product. They truly care about their customers!”
M. Barry, Champaign



“High quality workmanship, good choices in subcontractors, and the cleanup was very good for construction work. We had no reservations about having the workers in our home, whether we were there or not. You should be proud of your team.”
John Beberman, Champaign



“Thank you for your work and attention to detail when installing the egress window in the lower level of our home. Your crew is excellent.”
Nancy Uchtman, Urbana



“Lori and I wish to express our sincere thanks for the high-quality work. It felt it was like the attention I gave to making my furniture. When the house was originally  built (with architect Ted Langhoff, carpenter Markstaller and another person whose name I can’t remember), I felt then that I received the highest quality craftsmanship. I am glad that this high standard has continued. We also very much appreciate the friendliness of the workers and the clean-up every evening.”
James A. Bier, Champaign



“We are very pleased with the workmanship on our remodeling projects. The outcome is just as I envisioned it in every detail — and no detail was overlooked. The crew is very responsible, responsive, and interactive among themselves and with me; any question I raised was taken care of.
Satisfied with multiple jobs, Champaign



“Thank you for the bathroom remodel! I am very happy with the work! I shall be happy to recommend your work to all my friends!”
Helen Woods, Urbana



“We are delighted with the results. Thanks for the beautiful work!”
Marlys Scarbrough & Chet Alwes, Mahomet



“It was such a pleasure having New Prairie do our bath remodel. All the workers were on time, courteous, and took extra pains to keep the house clean. The final result is great! This is the third project we’ve done with New Prairie and can’t imagine using anyone else.”
Carol Livingstone & Dan Grayson, Urbana



“New Prairie is skilled at working with old houses. They did an amazing job crafting a new wood column for my porch. It is an exact replica of the old columns!”
Jason Finley, Urbana



“You’re a pleasure to work with — fine quality, fair prices, timely completion, and you leave the work site in excellent condition. Good crew!!”
Happy Customers, Champaign



“I would highly recommend New Prairie for construction and remodeling projects. They helped me consider all of my options for the project and were friendly, professional, reliable, tidy, knowledgeable, and competent.”
Deborah Jadhav, Champaign



“Working with New Prairie was a pleasant experience. I 100% recommend them and will definitely use them in the future.  They left my house as clean (or cleaner!) than before they started. The ceiling is a work of art. Unbelievable the difference!”
Pam S., Champaign



“We have used New Prairie Construction for several different projects on two different houses. They communicate very well before, during, and after the job. Their attention to detail — from cleaning up each day to making sure things fit together well — is superb. If we had any remodeling job they would be the first — the ONLY — company we would call.”
Kay and Graham, Urbana



“The things that impress me most about New Prairie Construction include: 1) They are well-informed and ready to recommend sustainable, eco-friendly solutions (I really like my cork floor!) and 2) they are not only competent in the trade, but excellent at managing professional relationships. They treated me well; all workers seemed genuinely happy to work with one another; and they have good relationships with and contract with tradepersons who are among the best in the area.

I really value the fact that everyone took my small bathroom remodel seriously — they listened to what I wanted and often did just as I asked — but their experience was used to respectfully temper and improve my own ideas.”
Enjoying my new bathroom, Urbana



“New Prairie has worked on projects at my house for over 10 years. They consistently do high quality work and give knowledgeable advice during the planning stage. They care about what they do, and it shows in the final product. And they clean up thoroughly when they finish a job.”
Marya Ryan, Urbana



“New Prairie is great! The quality of craftsmanship is excellent. They are always on time and leave the work area cleaner than they found it. We have personally like every New Prairie carpenter that worked in our home. Jill and Julie were always patient answering our many questions and we’ve had no surprises with any fees at the end. We are completely satisfied.”
Jean & Marshall, Urbana



“I am so glad and so proud to have a business like New Prairie Construction in our community. Jill and Julie care about far, far more than their bottom line – they put real craftsmanship into everything they do to a level you rarely see anymore and they work not only to think about the environmental impact of their own business but to also educate their customers and community about green building practices. A real C-U gem!”
Jacqueline Hannah



“We don’t even ask other companies for an estimate because we know New Prairie will do it right and that they treat both their customers and their employees fairly.”
Loyal Customers, Urbana



“We have had only exceptionally good experiences with New Prairie Construction. The work is unusually competent and thorough, the people you hire are a pleasure to have working in our home, and we know what a good place New Prairie is for them to work. A pretty unbeatable combination. Thanks so much!”
Tom Seals & Ruth Wene, Urbana



“After learning that lead paint was the likely source of our daughter’s elevated blood lead levels, we immediately called New Prairie Construction. We knew that NPC has a commitment to clean and environmentally responsible construction. We also knew from past jobs that Julie and Jill are exceptional communicators and we absolutely needed a contractor who could understand the full nature and implications of our problem. We found that New Prairie had already trained a number of their workers in lead abatement [3 years before it was required by the EPA] and that they were well-acquainted with both safe removal and safe infrared stripping techniques for our precise situation.

In addition to the work New Prairie did themselves on our home, they also put us in touch with a siding company in order to cover and enclose the exterior of our home. In all our work with New Prairie’s business subcontractors, from the siders to the window company, New Prairie watched out for our interests. They made sure we were completely satisfied with the work done by these associates. NPC’s subcontractors clearly held respect for them and were responsive to our concerns throughout the jobs because of their own good relationships with NPC.

We recommend NPC without reservation to any homeowner who wants quality work done safely and professionally by very amiable people!”
MJ Walker & Wendy Heller, Champaign



“New Prairie has done all of the major renovations on my home and I am very happy with everything they’ve done.  I trust them to do the best work with the least amount of stress (my own) and in the most expedient manner possible. They are the best!”
Susan Herrel, Champaign



“New Prairie has completed a number of projects over the years for us. Their work is always beautiful and backed up by a guarantee if we need help later. They are a pleasure to have working in the house — friendly, considerate, clean, and eager to please.”
Cope Cumpston, Urbana



“This was our first experience working with a contractor and now I suppose we are spoiled for life. We had a great experience working with New Prairie. They were all over our house removing leaky skylights and windows, repairing water damage, and giving us a complete new roof. It could have been a messy nightmare, but it wasn’t. All of their staff were personable, very respectful of our home, and they left the jobsite clean every night. We wouldn’t hesitate to use them again!”
Most Appreciative, Urbana



“It is difficult to imagine a more communicative and conscientious construction company. Their professionalism gave me tremendous peace of mind and our old house is looking better than ever. Thank you!”
Jim Torbit, Homer



“The bathroom remodel was everything I dreamed it would be.”
Joanne Chester, Urbana



“My experience with New Prairie Construction, which involved gutting  and renovating a kitchen and a bath in a 1920s bungalow, was completely positive. I could not be more pleased with the work, from the initial estimate and proposal, which were prompt, thorough, and transparent, to the careful and professional finish work, to their responsiveness and flexibility throughout the process. I wold recommend them highly, especially for any project that entailed coordinating numerous subcontractors. The schedule was realistic, the personnel were lined up in advance, so that the delays that seem to plague so many home improvement arrangements were avoided.  My home was treated with care and respect. I would not hesitate to use them again or to recommend them to others.”
Laurie Matheson, Champaign



“You really put total care and attention into your projects, even a small one like mine! Thanks!”
Joyce D. Meyer, Champaign



“Great job! Courteous, professional staff. Pleasure to see them work. I’m totally satisfied with the repair of the water-damaged roof and interior. New Prairie did a thorough job where other contractors had failed.”
Bruce Hajek, Urbana



“I was extremely pleased with my most recent job done by New Prairie, as I have been pleased with all of the work they’ve performed for me in the past. The office staff, the designers, and the carpenters are all first-rate. They communicate clearly and politely, are dependable on all counts, and they make undertaking any new construction or remodeling work a pleasure.  I would recommend them to anyone without any reservations.”
Tom Kilton, Urbana
