For those of you who don't already know it, Yingst Homes not only builds great homes, they do incredible remodeling work, too. My wife and I own a 140+ year old home that has great bones, but needed some serious updating in some areas. We've done a lot of work on the house ourselves, but we were not about to undertake what we thought were pretty major projects without the help of an expert. We worked with Yingst to completely rennovate our master bath and kitchen/laundry/mud room area and we couldn't be happier with the results!!

It's not great fun having your house torn up, especially the kitchen or a bathroom, but Yingst made it as easy to live with as they possibly could. There were no unexpected delays, people showed up when they said they were going to, they were respectful of our property and our privacy and they cleaned up all the construction mess at the end of each work day.

They had a designer and a decorator on staff, who came up with great ideas to maximize the space we had and pull all our ideas together so that the rooms function well and look fantastic. The site supervisor was great about keeping things on track, suggesting things we might not have considered ourselves, and dealing with the "suprises" that are a constant nuisance in old home remodeling.

The project wasn't inexpensive, but Paul Hepler worked with us to keep the costs in line without sacrificing quality and ultimately it was less expensive than we expected it might be. He explained before we ever signed a contract that there might be unexpected "discoveries" that would result in extra charges because of the age of our house, but when we ran into a couple of those things, they worked with us to make the corrections as efficiently as they good and in general the only overages were a result of things we decided to add at the last minute.

My wife and I couldn't be happier with our "new" digs and we'd highly recommend Yingst Homes to anyone considering a home improvement project.

We built our home with Yingst over 12 years ago and I still look around my home and have the same feeling "this home is too good to be true" as I did while we were building. Everyone there really made us feel like family. I valued everyone's experience at Yingst, they helped us to build the perfect home for our growing family. Their prices are a bit more than a few other builders in the area, but the quality is priceless. You get what you pay for. I wanted a home that was built to last, and that's exactly what I got. After 12 years, I still think of this as my "new" home, and I look forward to many more wonderful years here. Thank you Richard, Paul, Randy, Mark and everyone else!

Yingst has built our second home and we are very pleased with them. In fact, we felt so confident in their ability to build a quality product, after we sold our home we moved four hours away to Forest Co. and did not once feel the need to come home and "check" on them. We would recommend them to anyone.

Would never build with Yingst again. They are not the great builder that they portray themselves to be - far from it. Their subcontractors run amuck and oversight by Yingst's foreman is practically non-existent. Their "Signature Homes" are extremely over-priced for the small floor space and limited amenities offered in comparison to other local builders. 2" x 4" exterior wall construction on 3 of the 4 sides of my house - other local builders have been using 2" x 6" construction for years - not Yingst. Cheapest of the cheap in terms of kitchen cabinetry that they offer - just check their drawer construction, drawer glides, and cheap-looking matte finishes. Floors are not solid - transmit vibration across the room. The major screw-ups throughout my building process were unacceptable. Don't be fooled by the talk - stay away from Yingst.

I must be working with another Yingst Homes as my experience has ben no less than a nightmare. Even after multiple phone calls, e-mails and conversations, they continue to make errors on my home. There is no on-site foreman to manage the project so all of the trades-people are doing whatever they think they should be doing. You will need to visit the worksite daily and manage the project on your own if you have any hope of having a home that is satisfactory.

Paul Hepler will be your best buddy until you sign a contract. After that, you are on your own. He will not take your phone calls and does not have e-mail or voice mail so it is nearly impossible to get in touch with him. You will have to threaten action and then he may speak with you.

I cannot urge you enough to consider another builder. The stress and aggrevation you will suffer is extreme.

Yingst Home Inc is a really great local builder. They build fine homes as well as townhouses. Each home is made with such care and fine quality materials. The town homes are some of the nicest looking around and the interiors are equally as nice. Yingst really focuses on building a great home with all the nice finishing touches. Yingst is a reliable and respected builder who gives his customers a great quality house at a good price.
