Selecting a builder was a difficult first step in our building process.  When we met with Brad and Black Oak Building Company, we felt comfortable right away and were certain that he was the right builder for our home.  Brad was there to assist every step of the way throughout the entire process and provided excellent support with anything that we needed.  He listened and genuinely cared about building us the home that we wanted and went the extra mile to help us accomplish just that.

The workmanship of our Black Oak home was top-notch from the very beginning steps to the completed home, and everything else along the way.  Brad’s sub-contractors were courteous, accommodating, and a pleasure to work with from start to finish.  The quality in all areas of the building process is evident.

Black Oak has provided us with the quality home that we have always wanted.  The all-around personal service that we received from Brad and Black Oak was phenomenal.  We couldn’t be any happier with our home and the overall building process.  Black Oak took what could be a challenging process and made it a breeze.  Our expectations were most definitely exceeded!

Our “Dream House” plans were 20 years in the making when we met Brad Helm of Black Oak Building Company and he made it a reality for us. Brad guided us every step of the way from design to the finishing touches as we completed our beautiful home on 3.5 acres. Brad surrounds himself with stellar subcontractors and we couldn’t be more happy with the finished results. Brad’s honesty and integrity throughout the entire process was reassuring to us. His experience and concern for our needs was excellent. We have recommended him to our friends and as we knew, Brad did not disappoint. We love our new home and extend our deepest thank you to Brad and his team. We wish them nothing but future success.

“We are very pleased with the quality and timeliness of the work done by Black Oak Building Company. The workers & management take pride in what they do and will often add an extra touch to make sure things are just right. We bought a home in Toldeo and had Black Oak do some plumbing, framing, dry wall, ventilating, carpentry, electrical and painting … all while we were still out-of-state. The work was done to our satisfaction and, as promised, in time for us to move in. Six months later we used Black Oak for a minor bathroom remodel. The job required an electrician, a plumber, tile & drywall specialists and a finishing carpenter. All of the work was top notch.

We plan to use Black Oak for another bathroom remodel in the near future.”

When we made the decision to build our new home, we knew that the most important part of the process was to find the right builder to make our dreams a reality. We spoke with multiple builders over a period of three months, but knew right after meeting Brad that Black Oak Building Company was the right choice. From the time that we broke ground until completion, everyone associated with Black Oak was professional, reliable, and very easy to work with. They created an exceptional home for us, and we would highly recommend them to anyone contemplating building or remodeling.

After deciding to build our dream home, we met with several builders and selected Black Oak Building Company to carry out our vision. Because this was our first time building a home, we were quite anxious about the process. However, Brad Helm helped guide us through every phase of the project: from purchasing the land, designing our home, to the actual execution and completion of our dream.

Because of Brad’s professionalism, the entire process was very enjoyable and stress free. What sets Brad apart from other custom home builders is his ability and desire to listen, talk, and understand our needs. While his attention to detail is obvious on the finished product, what impressed us the most was his attention to every detail throughout the construction process. This has ensured us a well constructed home that will last for decades to come.

While many builders could have built us a nice looking house, Brad and his crew built us a beautiful home that not only realized our vision, but also exceeded our expectations.
