Otto Baum Company

Customer Comments…

“I have been working around your masons for awhile now and they have always been very friendly and done great work. With that being said I have never had the opportunity to work directly with them until recently I have been running a crew that is working directly with them and I want to say what a top notch group of guys. Bruce has been incredible so willing to help with any part of the job and the foreman Mark and his crew are so are very talented and very professional people and the safety officer Rich was very informative and very willing to help solve issues. I have been running a commercial concrete crew for the last 15 years, and I have honestly never came across a better group of professionals. What an incredible group of individuals your company has given our market. I was reluctant to send this message probably because I don't know if it was the right thing to do, but I believe that it is worth it because I have never had an opportunity to work with such a great group of men.”— Josh Chumbley

St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church Masonry Repair

“I wanted to take time to thank all your staff and especially Dan Bagley for the quality work and project management performed to restore our Church structure. Dan always provided real time communications that gave me confidence that he cared about the project and details. The team that Dan assembled were all very professional and the craftsmanship was evident. They all took great pride in the work performed. All the staff on-site were courteous and kept a clean work site that was important for us as we continued services in the church during the reconstruction. When there were small adjustments needed there was always a positive attitude to accommodate the details. The final product ended up to of such quality that unless we tell the story, no one would be able to notice that the building was compromised.”
