We would like to acknowledge Jeff Hard ( DePriest Construction), the builder of our ranch which included our custom home, garage, utility building, stables and barn.  Jeff's business was physically located approximately 1 hour way from the construction site yet we were convinced he was the right choice.  Clearly, we were correct!  Jeff is extremely well versed in all aspects of construction, focused and has an attention to detail which was extremely important to us.  Short-comings in the original design were uncovered and corrected by Jeff which even added to the overall design.  Jeff was easy to work with and he was intent on meeting our desires.  We received all we paid for and more which is unusual these days.  He can be extremely proud of this accomplishment.

My Wife and I have built a few homes in Fort Garland.  We have contracted with DePriest Construction for two of our homes.  Both Angela and I were extremely pleased with our experience.  Working with Jeff was very easy.  Their commitment to quality work and customer satisfaction is excellent.  We would recommend them to anyone who would like to build in Southern Colorado.

DePriest Construction LLC built our vacation cabin in 2010 in Forbes Park.  We had bids from various builders, but were very impressed by their professionalism and the good reputation they had built.  They far exceeded our expectations.  We found them to be impeccably honest and always did what they would in a timely manner.

We chose DePriest Construction LLC to construct our panelized home in 2008/2009 on our property on Wild Horse Mesa overlooking Sanchez reservoir.  We are very pleased with the quality of their work.  We greatly appreciated their flexibility and advice regarding the best way to handle any unplanned issues that come up during the construction, as well as their flexibility in dealing with any changes requested during the process.  We will gladly recommend them to anyone for their construction needs.

My husband and I wanted to add a patio area to our home.  I interviewed eight local contractors and received bids that ranged from $5,000.00 to $11,000.00 written on everything from a napkin to contracts.  The contracts were written to protect the contractor with limited benefits or protection for us, as home owners.  I have know the Hard family and the quality of their work for many years and I called Jeff and told him about the lack of confidence I had in local contractors.  I sent him the plans for our project and we discussed everything from the foundation for the roof support to the finish.  Jeff was clear, concise and left no question unanswered.  We agreed for him to construct the patio and the results were perfect.  Because DePriest Construction is a busy and reputable company, we waited for two months before they could schedule us in--it was worth the wait.  I would recommend DePriest Construction to my clients or friends because I am confident that they will do a job right the first time and back up their work.

I count my lucky stars that I found out about DePriest Construction.  They came recommended from the local hardware store and have never looked back or around for anyone else.  The work they do is precise, professional and above all, friendly and accessible.  I happen to be doing my build out in stages and this team still treats my project with the utmost respect and attention.  They are there to answer questions and explain details so I always feel informed and at ease.  Last, but not least, I found one stray screw on the ground outside my building.  In other words, the worksite and my property were left in excellent shape.  Project date spring and summer 2010.  Sincerely,

Laura Taylor (from Fort Garland and New York)

To say our experiences with DePriest Construction have been positive is an understatement.  Upon first meeting Keith to discuss plans for our cabin in Forbes Park, we sensed his willingness to work with us and a commitment to provide quality work within our financial parameters.  His expertise led to invaluable recommendations, saving us both money and headaches.  Throughout the construction process beginning late in 2007, Keith, Allen and Jeff exhibited trustworthiness, superior craftsmanship, integrity and dependability.  Simply put, they are quality people who do a quality job.

When my wife and I retired in 1997, we moved back to Alamosa, Colorado.  We needed someone to build us a retirement home and the first and only person that came to mind was Keith Hard of DePriest Construction LLC.  We have known Keith Hard and his family for many years and we knew the quality of his work and the attention to detail that he would give us.  Needless to say, we were more than happy with our new home.  We would strongly recommend DePriest Construction as a quality company to build your home.  This home is located at 2915 Sarah Lane, Alamosa, Colorado.  We would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.  You may contact us at jgaffga13@msn.com

DePriest Construction Company built us a house at 6981 Trinchera Ranch Road which was completed in 2008.  Since we were living in Houston, Texas it was necessary for us to rely on the builder, Mr. Keith Hard, to make the right decisions in regard to many of the details.  We could not be more pleased with the finished work.  The structure is well built and well insulated and the interior is very attractive.  We had had a bad experience with another builder and Mr. Hard was highly recommended by someone in the area.  Our experience with DePriest Construction was a pleasant one and we highly recommend Keith, Linda and Jeff Hard.  We can be reached at 713-465-7652.  Cleo Campbell

My wife and I hired Jeff and Keith to build a "lean to" roof and sleeping loft for our cabin on Mt. Blanca.  Their work was exceptional and was completed on budget and on time.  They even brought breakfast for my father and I on a Sunday morning.  We're looking forward to having them do additional work on our place in the Spring.  We would highly recommend DePriest Construction to anyone.

We've used DePriest Construction on several occasions, from backfill and basements to metal roofing.  Fair price, timely work, done right.

DePriest Construction LLC made our dream come true!!  We are from the Netherlands and what we know about building is completely different from USA building.  That's why we are even more thankful to work with such professionals who take the time to listen to your (crazy) ideas and are willing to look at every option to make your dream come true.  Beside that, they are honest, hard working people and will do the job at their very best, even if you are not there.  They make a proper estimate of the costs and will not surprise you with extreme higher costs.
