"The Sider Bros were recommended to us when we were looking to renovate and expand the footprint of our home. After doing a fantastic job on our home, we hired them again a few years later to tear down and rebuild our garage and the attached apartment. Their fine craftsmanship and attention to detail are some of the greatest attributes you obtain when working with the Sider Bros. In addition, their workers are polite, considerate and very neat. We have also asked them to assist us with some smaller jobs as well as whenever we noticed a potential issue which needed to be reworked after the job was done. If you are looking for "top-notch-quality workmanship", we would highly recommend the Sider Bros for any renovation or construction job you might have."

"Barbara Gisel Design has enjoyed teaming with Sider Brothers Builders on various projects. As an architectural and interior design firm, our coordination with Shawn and the Sider Brothers team begins during a project’s programming phase and continues through design development, construction documentation and construction administration. It is invaluable to work directly with SIder Brother Builders during all construction phases in order to provide the client with a coordinated design effort from the broadest terms down to the smallest details. We have worked extensively with Sider Brothers on multiple projects ranging from balcony additions sensitive to the existing historic architecture, in-home spas, pool houses and new 6000 square foot custom residences. Barbara Gisel Design and Sider Brother Builders have collaborated during the course of many years in the development of a family vacation compound located on Lake Erie. Work has included renovations to several homes and outbuildings within the compound as well as construction of new guest houses. Sider Brother Builders coordinated all of these jobs seamlessly. Sider Brother’s professional manner, superior craftsmanship and attention to detail provide our firm and the client with an enjoyable construction process. The results of our collaboration and hard work are evident in the many satisfied and returning clients. We look forward to our continued relationship with Sider Brother Builders."

"Twenty five years ago we purchased a beautiful lot on Lake Erie. On it was a 60 year old home that seemed destined for the wrecker's ball. It was then we met Carl Sider and realized that using his expertise we could save this old home. Over the next quarter of a century, Carl and his sons have rebuilt our home and guest house. In addition they have built our grown children's home next door, and a pool house behind it. The quality of Sider Brothers' workmanship speaks for itself, yet the greatest testimonial I can offer is this: Carl and his sons are not just our contractors, they are our trusted friends. We could not have been more blessed than to have met this wonderful family."

"The Sider Bros. Builders made an old cottage on the lake, in great need of repair, a cottage we treasure! They were courteous and always on time. They took the time to listen to what we wanted and those ideas and plans went beyond our expectations but remained in our budget. We would recommend anyone who is looking for a contractor to meet with the Siders first. We are so pleased with the way our cottage turned out! They are truly the best at what they do!"

"The Sider Brothers were our contactors for remodeling our beach house. Wayne was very professional and very helpful and always there when needed. He would correct any problems and would always talk with you about the various options or what the situation would need. I always felt that we were working as a team. Everything done was of the highest quality. We were so glad to have had them."

"In 2013 Sider Bros built our beach home in Crystal Beach.  Our story is somewhat unique as we live in Salt Lake City, Utah, so we could not be “on-site” very often. As a result, we needed someone who we felt comfortable with managing the building of our home, could make decisions in our absence to not slow down the building process, was meticulous to detail and stayed within budget We spent over 18 months researching builders and honestly the minute we met Shawn and saw some of the homes Sider Bros. had completed we knew they would be perfect.  From the start, Shawn worked seamlessly with our architect in Salt Lake City.  He then provided us with a very detailed budget and timeframe for the competition of our home.  On the day they promised to start the project, they did.  Each and every day from dusk to dawn they were at our home working in a timely manner.  Shawn sent pictures weekly and if decisions needed to made (such as picking out flooring, tile, etc.) he always gave us ample time.  We never once felt rushed … he always remained one step ahead in his planning and as a result we never felt stressed at all.  The attention to detail that Shawn and his crew gave to our home was unbelievable.  They treated the building of “our dream home” like their own.  Not only was Shawn meticulous, but each and every person that worked with him shared his philosophy of perfection.  We were only able to visit the building site twice in the 10 months that the home was being built.  We had so much faith in the workman and workmanship that we really felt it was unnecessary to come more than that.  We arrived on June 25th, the day Sider Bros. promised our home would be complete,  to see our beach home ….. and as we anticipated it was perfect.
