We were trying to determine if we should move into a bigger house or stay where we live and get our house updated. We decided to contact a few contractors to determine if they could give us what we wanted, for the right price. Dean made us feel comfortable with his knowledge of how homes can be updated, and with his low pressure style of dealing with customers.
We wanted to have a more open feeling to our house. Dean was receptive to our ideas and then expanded upon them, and came up with a curved island design, that fit our space and maximized the seating area for the island. The idea also opened up our kitchen into our living room, which was currently under-utilized.
Finally when it came to implementing our idea, everybody from the cabinet maker, through the electrician, painter, and drywaller were outstanding. All of them were professional and easy to talk to and did a great job. In the end, we have a great new open kitchen, and we have been using our old living room more in the past month than we had in ten years prior to this.
We would recommend Dean and his crew to anyone who are thinking of updating their house.
Aspen was fair in their pricing, workmanship good, timely and reliable. I highly recommend them.Lorie L. (Cottage Grove, MN)
We had several bids for our porch project and Aspen's was competitive, and we thought the design was the best submitted. I appreciated that during the build process, we were given suggestions that ultimately made the project better and exceeding our expectations.Brian D. (Minnetonka, MN)
We were running out of elbow room at our place. I made several calls to other contractors but Dean was the only one that called me back and walked me through what need it to be done for the room addition to our home. The project was completed just little over 2 months but it was way ahead of the scheduled completed date. We are enjoying the new room and are amazed how well it turned out. Thank you Dean.Kyle P. (Burnsville, mn)
We love our new space and have gotten compliments from everyone that sees it.Julie M. (Bloomington, MN)
Hi Dean & John,
Larry & I want to thank you so much for the great experience of working with Aspen Remodelers. Our new addition looks great and we are thrilled with all the improvements you brought to our house. We appreciated the ideas you gave us in designing our new rooms and the experience you shared in making it all come together. You made sure the things we were trying to accomplish stayed a priority and that our changes were both functional and beautiful. We love the 'wall of windows' you were able to take from a picture into a reality! From plumbing & heating, to electrical & structural, you were always able to navigate around the challenges our floor plan made and turn them into solutions. Your crews were always very clean and organized, they took great care to keep the dust to a minimum and pick up at the end of each day.
Another one of the reasons we felt so good about choosing Aspen was your flexibility to work through the project together. You helped us keep the costs manageable by reusing some of our existing doors & windows and coordinated with us on the pieces we wanted to do ourselves. We are excited to have the project completed and enjoy our new rooms every day.
Thanks again for your professionalism and commitment to quality!!
Nice work - well done! On time, clean up site well. Project as expected. Completed on time. Would definitely recommend.Beth S. (Shakopee, MN)
Aspen (Dean) was easy to work with, reasonable in any discussion and took care of any issue we had (even when we may not have been in the right).
I would recommend Aspen to any homeowner. They are responsive and work hard to satisfy your needs. They will also make recommendations about design. If any issues or "adds" come up they communicate and resolve them.
Dean made our kitchen remodel much easier & rewarding than I expected. During the planning stages, he advised us well when he thought we were a little off track & helped us make wise decisions on layout & materials. During the construction phase, there was excellent attention to detail & quality. I also appreciated that everything was cleaned up at the end of the day to minimize the impact on the rest of our home. I would recommend working with Aspen Remodelers to anyone who asked.Danna W. (Minnesota)
Dean and his subcontractors have done very good job on my new kitchen and bathroom. They are trustworthy and reliable remodelers. We will recommend to others about their good quality job, patient and talented skills.Gyaltsen and Pema M. (Richfield, MN)
Aspen Remodelers have done several projects for me over the years and I've always been very happy with the quality of their work.Joyce F. (Wayzata, MN)
I want to thank AspenRemodelers for the wonderful addition done to our home. We had a front porch that always needed cleaning and was never really used. Dean came up with several great ideas to make a 3 season porch that is beautiful and we now use it every day. They were very patient as we made changes and helped get everything done on time. They are expert craftsmen that do excellent work. Thank you.Doug H. (Plymouth, MN)
The kitchen looks great.Kyle T. (Jordan, MN)
Aspen Remodelers did a fantastic job with finishing our basement. We didn’t have an exact vision of what we wanted when we consulted with Dean and Dean was able to help us decide on a great design for the space. He gave us honest feedback on what would work well and what wouldn’t work as well, but ultimately he wanted us to be very happy with the end result.
Dean and his crew were very timely with the project and gave us time frames that they followed through with. Dean always gave us enough lead time to make decisions, such as paint color and carpet choices, before he would need that information. It was also very easy to communicate with Dean via email when we had any questions and he was prompt to follow-up.
The work was exceptional and the cost was more than fair.
Thank you for a job very well done!
In september of 2009,Aspen Remodelers Inc. (Dean Sprague)replaced our kitchen and bathroom windows. We looked at several window companies to determine the right fit and price for us. Quality and craftsmanship are very important as well as knowledge of carpentry. We were very impressed with Deans craftsmanship and the timely manner in which he completed the job. It is apparent that he can do anything in the line of construction, no job too small or too big.
We have recommended him to several of our neighbors who needed things done and they were very pleased. In all we have given his name and card to at least 20 of our friends in case they ever need work done. We plan to use him again this year (2010).
We highly recommend Dean, knowing he will not disappoint. You will be amazed at his talents if you would like to talk to us personally feel free to call (phone# omitted).
Dean and his crew are a pleasure to work with. I know they are meticulous, quality oriented and neat. I can always reach Dean with questions, and he presents options at different price levels when requested. We trust Dean, have worked with him in the past, will hire him again in the future, and recommend him to all our friends.Mary S. (Elko, MN)
To whom it may concern,
Aspen Remodelers just completed & stained a new 10'x10' deck on my townhome at **address removed for privacy** in Eden Prairie, MN. The workmanship is excellent.
Dean S. is very professional & special to work with.
I am 100% satisfied with the new deck & would recommend Aspen Remodelers to anyone.
We had Dean and Aspen Remodlers Inc build a 16\' X 16\' four season porch onto our house. We found Dean to be very honest and dependable and he earned our trust. We are very pleased with the final product and the work that was performed.Dave & Kristin G. (Farmington, MN)
I strongly recommend Aspen Remodelers for any remodeling project. They did a great job from
start to finish. The project was on time, on budget, and it looks great. I had my outdated
kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and floors done. Completely transformed my whole house!
Aspen Remodelers has a small town feel to the company. I was able to trust them immediately, and knew they had my best interest in mind. When I had questions, I was able to just pick up the phone and call Dean. I also relied on Dean's knowledge and experience for help with many of the choices.
I've had nothing but great compliments from everyone I've shown the results to.
Dean took ownership of the project and offered lots of opinions. Great to work with. Subcontractors were good too. We have recommended Dean to others.Leia S. (Maple Grove, MN)
We are thrilled with the 2 story addition and deck that Aspen Remodelers designed and built for us!
The final result is a beautiful, comfortable space that has become our favorite room in our home– and a lower level office which makes one actually enjoy ‘going-to work’!
When undertaking a project, it was important to have people who were readily available to answer questions and on-site staff that we could work with. Dean was only a telephone call away and Paul was onsite daily from start to finish.
We highly recommend Aspen Remodelers for the quality of the construction, the fair pricing, and professionalism of the team. We would not hesitate to work with Dean and Paul on another project in the future!
We want you to know that the screen porch and deck you built for us has exceeded anything we could have imagined. The quality of materials, workmanship and attention to detail is outstanding.
We especially appreciate the extra effort you made to work with our association board and find windows that met requirements.
Your carpenters were exceptionally skilled and enjoyable to have around. We will contact you again if we have other remodeling projects and would recommend you to anyone. Thank you.
To Whom it May Concern:
Lois and I strongly recommend Aspen Remodeling Company for any remodeling project big or small. We would hire them for another project in the future if the occasion arises. We had our outdated bathroom demoed and finished into a custom bathroom with stone floors and wan coating; deluxe fixtures; and granite vanity top. We are pleased with the craftsmanship and the looks of the final product. The project was professionally coordinated by Dean from start to finish without problems and delays.
We contacted three remodeling companies for the project and Aspen Remodeling came out first in several categories that we considered. We were initially impressed with Dean and John's sincerity and integrity on our first contact, and can honestly say our first impression proved true. They were professional in all aspect of the project and made every effort to satisfy our wishes and request. Dean went beyond our expectation when considering some of the final products and detail of the project. He wanted the final project to meet his high standards of quality as a professional builder and to satisfy the homeowner's expectations.
The subcontractors were courteous, friendly and quality craftsman. While working they made every effort to minimize the disruption to the homeowner and the mess that was created. They took every effort to reduce the dust created and upon completion cleaned up the area.
Dean, John and their crew's took pride and ownership in our remodeling project and we are a satisfied homeowner who is enjoying and taking pride in the final product.
We have recommended Aspen Remodeling to our neighbors' and will recommend them to friends in the future.
Thank you Dean and John;
We are extremely pleased with our four season porch! We chose Dean Sprague and Aspen Remodelers because of their professionalism throughout the interview process. We met numerous times with Dean and he offered suggestions and expertise on how to build exactly what we wanted. The result is a splendid four season porch. One thing we like about Aspen Remodelers Inc. was their ability to listen to our thoughts and opinions. We had trust in Dean that he and his team would do an excellent job and we could not be more happy with the finished project. We recommend Aspen Remodelers for your future building projects!Mike C. (Prior Lake)
Aspen Remodelers is Awesome!! We love our new room that they completed for us! They worked with our budget and were on top of communication.

Thank you so much for all you did!Reva O. (Shakopee, MN)
