"During June and July of 2014 we were preparing our home to place on the market. A home in our neighborhood had a sign displayed in their yard referencing Lane Builders. We asked our neighbor if Lane Builders was a company they would recommend and they spoke very highly of Lane Builders. So we contacted Lane Builders, scheduled a meeting to access Lane Builders and allow them to provide a quote for the work that needed to be accomplished. We selected Lane Builders due to their professional presentation and scheduling. Once on site, Lane Builders continued to perform as scheduled and in a professional and timely manner. Each evening Tom advised us by email what time the workers would be arriving and they arrived at the scheduled Tom each day. Workers were skilled, knowledgeable and very considerate of our home.As in allconstruction activities someunexpected thingswill occur. Lane Builders worked with us to provide solutions while respecting our budget and schedule. Our home sold very quickly and now we are closing on a pre-owned home which may require some modification. Guess who we are calling? Lane Builders."

"It is with great enthusiasm and extreme satisfaction that I write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Lane Builders.

My husband and I built our home about 4 years ago. For many reasons, we decided at that time to leave the basement portion unfinished. In the spring of 2013 we began to research Madison area builders/contractors in hopes of finding a person who would be the “right fit” for us. We wanted to find someone to help us make our 1200 square feet of basement as fabulous as we knew that it could be. An acquaintance of mine referred Tom Killian/Lane Builders to me. She had just finished a remodeling project at her home and was very happy with the craftsmanship and overall price.

My husband had just begun a very time consuming project at his place of employment so I knew that our basement construction project was ultimately in my hands. Tom Killian made me feel comfortable from the first time I met him. He was very knowledgeable and provided me with additional ideas upon seeing our space for the first time. I also had the opportunity to meet several of the Lane Builders Team (subcontractors) before work began. They came by to meet with me and discuss in more detail what my vision was (i.e. types of finishes I wanted). I was very impressed by each of them. Not only were they super nice but they answered all of my questions. I do not have any background regarding any of their areas of expertise (i.e. electrical, carpentry, HVAC, etc.) so I really appreciated that they took their time out of their busy schedules to come and meet with me. This also gave me a chance to observe the great relationship between Tom Killian and the Team (subcontractors). My husband and I have three young children and we wanted to be very comfortable with the folks that would be working in our home.

We signed a contract with Lane Builders in June of 2014 and work began on our basement shortly afterward. It was wonderful to see the progress that was made almost daily. Tom made sure that I knew the schedule for each week. Selecting the finishes for our basement which includes the following rooms; kitchen, living room/dining room, full bathroom, and flex room was easy for me, mostly because the vendors/subcontractors are so helpful and knowledgeable. Throughout the project we remained on time and most importantly for us on budget. It was a very pleasant process. I think that one of the things that I appreciate the most about Tom and his Team was the fact that were not afraid to speak up and make suggestions. These suggestions lead us to think more about future needs and what things needed to be done now to make future renovations/needs more cost effective/easier (i.e. wiring for a generator, electrical prep work outside for a future pool). During the entire process Tom was so professional and courteous. I could tell that providing excellent customer service was always important to him. Tom was always on time and no question was too frivolous for him to answer.

Our basement was completed in August of 2013 and we could not be more pleased. It is a fabulous place that our entire family enjoys. We are so thankful to Tom Killian/Lane Builders for making our dreams a reality and we cannot wait to start our next project.

Please give Tom Killian/Lane Builders the opportunity for your business. You will not be sorry! "

"I write this letter in recommendation of Lane Builders as a general contractor. I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Killian on an addition to my basement/storm room in 2014. I can recommend him highly and without reservation. Throughout the course of the addition, Mr. Killian was a consummate professional. He was accurate in his initial assessment of the scale and cost of our project. He was absolutely clear in his record keeping and time log. He chose and managed the sub-contractors well.

Our job was done with care and precision and also in the time frame that he originally estimated. In addition, he is extremely clean and tidy in the workplace. He never left the worksite in disarray.

Working with Mr. Killian was an absolute pleasure and the quality of the work was second to none. He is a bit of a perfectionist and it is definitely evident in the work that was done in my home.

Again, Mr. Killian truly is a professional and I would recommend anyone looking to have high quality work done to seek out Lane Builders."

"From planning and consultation through completion, Tom Killian with Lane Builders guided us through our home remodeling project resulting in updates and upgrades to our home we feel perfectly fit our needs.

We found Lane Builders to be very caring and professional in the approach to our project. Tom's team stayed on schedule and on budget, and kept the communication channels going through the entirety of the work. The detail of the finished carpentry and the precision in the granite and tile work really pulled together a great new look to our home. In everything from the woodwork to the kitchen finishes to new flooring, it is apparent that Tom and his team take tremendous pride in their work. The end result is a unique and beautiful update to our home."

"I am writing as a happy home owner thanks in part to the work done this past fall by Tom Killian and his contractors.

We purchased our home in the fall of 2011. Even though it was a new and a wonderful house, the downstairs was not as practical or as an open floor plan as we wanted. Our realtor referred us to Tom Killian, owner of Lane Builders, whom we met several times over the following year to draft some ideas. Thankfully Tom was very patient because we were very picky and it took several meetings and designs drafts before agreeing to a final design.

Tom's knowledge, flexibility, attention to detail and professionalism was beyond our expectations. He not only finished the project on schedule and within budget but his attention to detail was above our expectations. Many times, projects have changes and adjustments that are needed. When we were confronted with these "challenges" Tom presented us with it and made sure we were included in the solution. It was very nice to be included and have our voices heard. At all times Tom wanted to make sure the project was designed to meet our needs and desires.

Tom and his crew's attention to details showed in all aspects of their work, from preparing the house for the remodel to the clean up once the project was complete. We would highly recommend Tom and his construction crew."

"My wife and I selected Lane Builders LLC to complete a renovation/addition to our existing home. It was a pleasure working with Tom Killian in the execution of the plan. The project was completed in a timely manner and Tom was very responsive to any concerns that may have arisen and those were few given the planning that was accomplished by Tom prior to the execution phase of the project. The completed project is first rate and the addition to the house is seamless in appearance, looking as if it was original construction inside and out. My wife and I would readily recommend Lane Builders LLC to anybody looking to have a home project accomplished."

"We used Lane Builders for our kitchen renovation and were very pleased with the outcome. Tom Killian was professional and the work was completed on time and within the cost Tom provided. We would recommend Tom and Lane Builders for home remodeling projects."

Tod and Anne Collier

"To anyone considering having Tom Killian with Lane Builders build a home for you or have a renovation done on your existing home, I cannot recommend Tom Killian enough. He is 100% professional, 100% qualified and does everything within his power to make you 100% satisfied. He has completed several renovations on our current home, some involving eradicating errors made by other contractors. He is attentive and is on the job every day, always giving you an itinerary of when and where things will be happening. He has been in the business long enough to have connections with the best subs, so you don't have to worry about the quality of work. Tom made all of our renovation experiences such a pleasure and the end result was better than we expected. You may find a cheaper contractor out there, but if you want the job done right, call Tom."

"We had a partial remodel of our kitchen/laundry area and I would recommend Tom Killian to build or oversee any remodel job that I needed done. I found that Tom is very well organized and will gather all the materials and workmen together and get the job scheduled so that the work goes smoothly and in a timely manner. He addresses any issues you have as things "crop" up in the remodeling process and quickly gets them resolved. It was a pleasure working with him."
