Review of Kern Construction

"We highly recommend Kern Construction without any reservation. In 2009 Kern was the general contractor for a major renovation of our home. We found Kern to be fair and honest. They delivered what they promised. Kern employs quality craftsmen and utilizes quality sub-contractors. Much of the work was accomplished while we were out of town. Kern did an excellent job of keeping us informed, sending many pictures and alerting us to situations which we might wish to handle differently than originally planned. The result is a completed renovation that exceeds our expectations. We have come to consider many of the Kern people to be friends"

"Having lived on the island over 30 years, we tend to prefer to do business with fellow islanders. If you've lived here any length of time you know why. So when we decided to remodel our home, we interviewed 4 local island contractors and then followed up on their references. Kern Construction came out on top and we are so very pleased with the results. Their team of professional, high quality craftsman totally transformed and reshaped our home from an Adirondak chalet to a classy beach hideaway with all of the upgraded amenities. Thank you Jerry and Jim and crew!"

"We recently renovated our Key Royale Home and our first priority was to use an island contractor and our first and final choice was with Kern Construction. We love the island and have been here for many years and always try to use our local businesses when we can. The Kern family has been on the island for a long time and they are known for their honest, fair, hard-working and professional results. Jerry Kern came to our plain little house and gave us all kinds of great ideas that turned our house into a beautiful, warm and quality home.

We also lived in the house throughout the entire renovation and everyone was so considerate and respectful of our home and our schedules- they made it very easy to remain in our home while the work was being done. Jim Moss was our project manager and he was so great - he gave us a schedule of the work to be done every week and was always done on time, the subcontractors always showed up to do their job, we never had delays. All the sub-contractors that work with Jerry are quality craftsmen and Mike Kern did all our trim and doors and hardware and he has such a special talent for all the details that make such a difference in the end product.

We love our new home and are very proud to tell everyone that our choice to use Kern Construction was the right one and would recommend them to you. So when you are driving, walking, or riding your bike around our beautiful island and see that KERN sign in someone's front yard, you'll know that they will have a quality home done by quality people, Thanks Jerry, Mike and Jim!"
