Testimonials

I am writing this letter as my basement remodel with Stortz Custom Homes has been concluded. I wanted to share with you that I felt that my contractor Dave Spooner and the professional nature of the contractors was exceptional. Dave never made me feel pressured and when needed, explained each series of the project. He especially encouraged me in ways to help keep my finished home free of dust from the project. The contractors on this job were clearly experienced and politely professional. They were not subcontracted out being strangers to each other. They were all versed in their trade - not seasonal help(which is a big deal!) None were a subcontract of a sub contract,which allows the contractors to make as much money off the owners and untrained staff as possible always producing less than grade A product and then to disappear into the wind when you try to contact them or say I would need to call some guy I never met.. sorry that's a big soap box for me; I hate that! I will share my positive experience with Stortz contractors when other need a builder! Thank you very much ~Rec Room(2017)

It's been a real pleasure working with Dave and the entire Stortz team. They did an incredible job on our basement, we're getting tons of compliments! The project was completed on time and on budget as well. We'd definitely recommend Stortz Custom Homes for new homes or remodels and will certainly use them again!~Rec Room(2017)

We are overjoyed with how beautiful our home turned out! We embarked upon the journey of building a new home as complete novices and sought out to find a builder whom we could trust to be patient with us and guide us through the process. Stortz delivered on this in spades. From helping us create the custom design, to working with Tim and Nick during the bid process, to working with Arnie their expediter and Becky their designer; everyone at Stortz made helping us build our dream home their top priority. If we were to build again tomorrow there is no question on which builder we would choose. ~CUSTOM HOME(2017)

... Patrick & Jenny, Slinger, WI


People say that building a house is one of the most stressful experiences they've ever had; with Stortz Custom Homes this could not be further from the truth. Not only was our experience stress free, it was actually fun! From start to finish the professionals at Stortz provided a clear and concise plan for us to build our family's "forever home". They were always available to answer questions and accommodate our needs; transparency in the building process allowed us to enjoy the experience and the result was our dream come true. From quality of work to budget to timeline, they exceeded our expectations at every turn. My husband and I will continue to recommend Stortz Custom Homes - this is builder you can trust with your dream home! ~CUSTOM HOME(2017)

... Shane & Tricia, Barton, WI


We are so excited to be in our new home! The process of building went smooth from start to finish. Watching the stages of our home's construction was so fun and exciting. Stortz Custom Homes kept us informed about each stage of building with photos and postings to the website as well as a personal liaison to assist in the selections of everything for our home. We found their contractors to be friendly, professional with much attention being paid to detail. We have now begun the process of building our detached garage!! If we build again, it would be with Stortz Custom Homes.~CUSTOM HOME(2017)

... Gary & Dianne, Trenton, WI


We looked into numerous builders before speaking with Stortz Custom Homes. Speaking directly with Nick & Tim was a great experience. We appreciated their up front and honest approach to our questions about building. Their all in pricing with a "no games" attitude caught our attention! The whole process surprisingly went extremely smooth, we've heard other builder horror stories. Selections were a breeze and we appreciated the designers input. It was a surreal reality watching our plans and ideas become a "Home"! During this process any questions, concerns, changes and such were handled promptly. Their expediter was a pleasure to work with, and always listened. We couldn't of asked for a better building experience, and would gladly do it all over again. Thanks for building us a beautiful home! ~CUSTOM HOME (2016)

... Tom & Roma, Richfield, WI


Most simply stated, Stortz Custom Homes provides AMAZING customer service! From day one, they were responsive, attentive and extremely personable. We felt after our first meeting with them that they were people we could trust and we're very glad we did. Our new house turned out better than we imagined and nearly a month ahead of their promised schedule. We're still in awe that our custom house was built in 4.5 months! They addressed all questions, concerns and issues quickly, followed through on their promises and ultimately built the perfect home for us! We can't thank Stortz Custom Homes and all of the wonderful contractors they had working for them enough. We love our new home and highly recommend Stortz Custom Homes to anyone looking at building! ~CUSTOM HOME (2016)

... Jeremy & Jessica, Slinger, WI


Making custom dream homes a reality! When it came time to build our second home we knew exactly what we wanted and learned a lot from our first home building experience. We completed endless hours of research and flipped through thousands of floor plans but just couldn't find what we were dreaming of. Knowing we weren't ready to settle we reached out to Stortz Custom Homes in hopes of making our dreams a reality. We were surprised to learn "custom" didn't have to mean time consuming and anything truly was a possibility. Unlike other builders, we really felt like we were partnering to create a unique home full of quality details and exceptional features exactly the way we envisioned. From the design to the construction, communication and expectations were seamless. Not only were our expectations met, they were blown away! The level of professionalism and customer service that was experienced during our build was beyond amazing. We will absolutely recommend Stortz Custom Homes to our friends & family and look forward to working together again once we are ready to finish our basement. Our home is absolutely one of a kind and no longer a dream.....all thanks to the hard-work, expertise, and dedication of Stortz Custom Homes! Thank you Tim & Nick! ~CUSTOM HOME (2016)

... Jason & Theresa, Richfield, WI


As customers that had never owned a home and knew nothing about the building process, regulations or level of involvement required, building with Stortz was easy with guidance provided for every step of the process. We had a very specific vision for our home and needed to be sure we could stay within our budget. Stortz was great about making sure that our final price had all our wants and needs included prior to us breaking ground. There were no surprises and everything was very well communicated. Our lender was extremely complimentary of Nick's organization and the information provided throughout the process. ~CUSTOM HOME (2016)

... Adam & Jamie, Richfield, WI


Building with Stortz was a great experience. Your team of professionals made the building process stress-free and the quality of work cannot be surpassed. Thank you for everything. Best regards. ~CUSTOM HOME (2016)

... Tom & Judy, Richfield, WI


"Building a home can be an overwhelming and stressful process. But as we found out very quickly, this is NOT the case when building with Stortz Custom Homes. Working with Tim, Nick, Arnie, Becky and all of their subcontractors was a very pleasant experience from our first meeting to our final walk-thru. Everyone was friendly, professional, organized and prompt which led to a stress free and enjoyable building experience. When asked if we would use Stortz Custom Homes again, our response is always....in a heartbeat!". ~CUSTOM HOME (2015)

... Tim & Mary, Jackson, WI


We chose Stortz Custom Homes because we knew they were a builder we could trust. During the planning stage they were patient and very low-pressure, but when we were ready to build they moved very quickly. Anytime questions, changes, or issues came up they were quickly addressed and there were never any surprises. In our case, we came in under budget and the home was completed ahead of our expectations. We highly recommend Stortz Custom Homes and can't imagine building with anyone else. ~CUSTOM HOME (2015)

... Brad & Kristen, Richfield, WI


We loved building with Stortz Custom Homes. They were easy to work with and communicated effectively with us throughout the process. They were attentive to our needs and their follow through was incredible. Becky, Stortz's designer, helped to reduce the stress of picking out items for our home and Arnie managed the process every step along the way. We felt confident about every selection that we made for our home because of the knowledge of the Stortz team. If we build again, we will most certainly use Stortz Custom Homes. ~CUSTOM HOME (2015)

... Todd & Lisa, Campbellsport, WI


Working with Tim & Nick was the right decision from the first day that we meet them. During our first initial meeting, they took the time to listen and show us a variety of ideas that would work for what we were looking for in our custom home. The quality communication continued throughout the process not only from Tim & Nick, but while making selections with Becky and working with Arnie on the timeline of our home. During the entire process, our questions were answered in a timely manner and Stortz Custom Homes made the building process an enjoyable one for our family. We are excited to be living in the home they helped bring to fruition. ~CUSTOM HOME (2015)

... Tim & Jill, Barton, WI


Our new home turned out better than we could have ever hoped. The way Nick was able to take our wish list and fit it into one house plan was amazing. We were nervous about having to make all the decision involved in building a home, but the way they laid everything out it in our binder made it a breeze. No matter how many times we had questions, or the when there were surprise issues, the team at Stortz was there with an answer or solution. We truly enjoyed working with the team at Stortz and all the contractors that came through our home. Our home will be the perfect place to raise our 4 kids. We don't see why we would ever want to leave this home, but if we did, Stortz Custom Homes would be our first call to build the next one. ~CUSTOM HOME (2014)

... Mike & Shannon, Wayne, WI


Our biggest concern when selecting a builder was finding an organization ran by people we could trust. We knew from our very first meeting with Tim & Nick, that these were hard-working and very customer-centric people committed to helping us make a smart and fiscally responsible decision. They were less concerned about what they provided and focused more on what we wanted down to the very last detail. Stortz Custom homes exceeded our expectations. They are incredibly organized, detail oriented, flexible, and most importantly - people that we trusted throughout the entire building process. We could not be more happy with Tim, Nick, and the rest of their organization who gave us everything we asked for and much more. We would recommend them in a heart-beat to anyone that needs a builder. ~CUSTOM HOME (2014)

... Bryan & Suzanne, Hubertus, WI


Building a home can be a very stressful undertaking however with the help of Nick, Tim and Nick R it was a very easy and exciting process. During the entire process they were there for us with any of our questions and were quick to provide answers and provided daily updates for us. Dealing with the owners of a great company like Stortz Custom Homes has many benefits and made us feel at ease. We hope to never build again (as we absolutely love our home) however if we were to build again we would instantly chose Stortz Custom Homes again! Thank you for all of your help and a beautiful finished product we will love for years to come. We couldn't have picked a better company to build with! ~CUSTOM HOME (2014)

... Chuck & Amy, Lisbon, WI


Nick, Tim and Nick R. were very easy to work with. The quality of workmanship and materials was very good. If you are looking at building a custom home we would recommend Stortz Custom Homes ~CUSTOM HOME (2014)

... Jack & Ilona, Cedarburg, WI


This was the first home we had ever built and to say that we were nervous about choosing the right builder would be an understatement. When we met with Nick and Tim, we "clicked" right away, and they made us feel like the most important part of the process from beginning to end. We felt comfortable that we could ask questions at any time, and always received a prompt response. Stortz Custom Homes took the house in our heads to paper, and then to reality. Our home is high quality and beautiful. We would recommend Nick and Tim without reservation. ~CUSTOM HOME (2014)

... Dave & Lisa, Farmington, WI


Stortz Custom Homes built the house of our dreams. We had never had a home built before and we had heard how stressful the process was. With Tim & Nick, we enjoyed our experience from beginning to end. We are very happy we built with Stortz. ~CUSTOM HOME (2013)

... Charmaine & Terry, Farmington, WI


Building our home with Nick and Tim was fantastic! I am in the building industry myself working with builders and contractors daily and can say with confidence that the staff at Stortz Custom Homes are among the very best I have ever dealt with! Building a one of a kind, custom home is not an easy task and often comes with challenges along the way but Stortz Custom Homes made it look easy. The level of comfort, communication, and trust we had with them was second to none and we were glad to have chosen them for our project. We continually recommend Stortz to all we can. After seeing our home built, we have had family members start building their new home with Stortz as well. ~CUSTOM HOME (2013)

... Chad & Tanya, Merton, WI


We couldn't be happier with Stortz Custom Homes! The quality of their work is second to none. Nick and Tim are so easy to work with.

Stortz Custom Homes exceeded my expectations. They were always accessible to answer my questions; they were very pleasant and professional, and they always kept me up-to-date on what was happening. I felt very comfortable associating with them, and I was very happy with the final results. Thanks again for making this a wonderful experience! ~CUSTOM HOME (2013)

... Sandy, West Bend, WI


We absolutely love our Stortz Custom Home. Our one regret was wasting a couple months talking with other builders before talking with Nick and Tim. The contractors were absolutely first class and the work performed was second to none. We cannot begin to describe the feeling we had when the house was completed and it turned out even better than we had imagined. These guys truly do make your home dreams come true. ~CUSTOM HOME (2012)

... Jeff & Michelle, Germantown, WI


We've relocated many times and built previous homes throughout WI. From the first time we met Nick and Tim, we felt at ease and knew their commitment would be second to none! From our numerous planning sessions, thru all phases of construction, to finishing under budget and the ultimate customer service shown at the final one year walk-thru, we have been extremely pleased. We even recommended Stortz Custom Homes LLC, to others looking to build well before our project was completed! Nick exceeded our expectations in customer service, communication, responsiveness, attention to detail and superior demand for the highest quality throughout our entire process. We are very proud and pleased to be part of their "building family".~CUSTOM HOME (2012)

... Rob & Sherri, Richfield , WI

We are delighted we chose Nick and Tim to build our house. They listened to our thoughts and ideas and turned them into the home of our dreams. The construction process went smoothly and the contractors were a pleasure to work with. We were so very pleased with the building process and know we have a superior quality home. Nick and Tim and the entire Stortz crew were the nicest people to work with. We couldn't be happier and we can't thank them enough! ~CUSTOM HOME (2012)

... Don & Lori, Town of Jackson, WI


"We absolutely love our new home! Nick and Tim and all of their contractors were a joy to work with. From the architect to the finishing touches, they made our contemporary style come to life and there was nothing they wouldn't try for us. We received professional and friendly service at every step of the process, and they continue to check in with us even now, after we moved in. We are so glad we chose Stortz Custom Homes as our builder!!" ~CUSTOM HOME (2011)

... Matthew & Nicole, Slinger, WI


Stortz Custom Homes made a dream on paper become a reality with building a quality, exceptional home.

I am very happy with my home and wouldn’t hesitate to build another one with Stortz Custom Homes.~CUSTOM HOME (2010)

... Barb, Richfield, WI


We can't say enough wonderful things about the house that Stortz Custom Homes built for us or about Nick and Tim. From the first time we met, we felt that they were as invested in our dream as we were. Having built with a "cookie-cutter" builder before, the difference with Stortz Custom Homes was night and day. Our phone calls were answered immediately and we were able to fully enjoy the process of watching our house go from a pencil sketch to a showplace. There were no issues bigger than a hiccup in the process and even that was handled with efficiency and grace. We are proud to say that our home was constructed by Stortz Custom Homes and to count Nick and Tim among our friends. We don't plan to leave our dream home but if we did, we would never build with anyone else. ~ CUSTOM HOME (2011)

... Tom & Michelle, Franklin, WI


"We would recommend the Stortz team to anyone who is looking to remodel their home. Tim and Nick were reliable builders who kept us informed every step of the way. Friends and family who have seen our finished basement have been impressed with quality of the craftsmanship." ~RECROOM (2010)

... Dave & Debbie, Germantown, WI


Stortz Custom Homes built us the home of our dreams. They helped us customize the home to fit our needs and also added in several nice finishing touches. They completed the build on time, within our budget, and better than we expected. Tim and Nick were always there for us to answer any questions we had and help us through the process. We couldn't have found a better builder to build our home. ~CUSTOM HOME (2010)

After having gone thru our extensive remodeling project,we are very pleased we chose to go with Stortz Custom Homes.

It was a pleasure working with you guys - HOME REMODEL (2010)

... AJ & Karin C., Hubertus, WI


We searched and shopped around for a builder we felt we could trust. Tim & Nick are truly great builders, and even better people. Their communication and effort were fantastic.~CUSTOM HOME (2009)

... Mike & Kim T., Germantown, WI


Stortz Custom Homes, LLC was refreshing to work with. We always felt like we were kept in the "loop" on all phases of our new home. We are extremely happy that we chose to work with this builder. ~ CUSTOM HOME (2008)

... Al & Tina, Germantown, WI


Nick & Tim Stortz made our dreams come true. From the great communication, to the only 4 MONTHS it took to build our home, to the great product that was built, they truly did deliver. ~ CUSTOM HOME (2008)

... Scott & Kristen, Hartford, WI


We have built "2" homes with Tim & Nick, and both times it was a very rewarding experience. We dealt directly with the owners, and felt that we could talk to them about anything during the process.  At the end of the construction of our home, to our surprise we had money left over in our construction loan account. They actually came in under the contract price. ~CUSTOM HOMES (2004 & 2007)

... Mike & Andrea, Hartford, WI


did you know
Stortz Custom Homes is priced better than most of the competition. We have no sales force. You deal direct with the owners to make the building process smooth and efficient. Custom doesn't mean more expensive, it just means you get it YOUR way!
