Here what our clients think about us

Although John had built dozens and dozens of homes by the time we contracted him to build our home, he didn't treat us like a number. He took time to patiently walk us through the process upfront and never became frustrated with our questions all hours of the day about the most minute detail. John did not simply build us a house; he built us a home and took pride in that the entire time.

Our experience with Covert Homes and John Covert was exceptional. John walked us through the complete process and continually keep us abreast of the next step in the construction process. We designed our home over a two year period so every detail was considered. John made sure our dream home came true and on time.

We were looking for a builder to take care for our home on the lake. We had several recommendations from our realtor who had become our very close friend. The architect after reviewing the options suggested to include John Covert. It was one of the most wonderful things that happened to us. His sincerity, truthfulness and honesty was something he could not hide as it was so evident. The building of the home was a beautiful and happy journey. We built the home living out of state and there was a constant flow of information, pictures, decisions in such a pleasant way that we were nostalgic to finish it. He was outstanding with the architect, the sub-contractors, always so up to date with all the city and county construction regulations and permits. He was so re-assuring when we literally went thru storms during the construction process. And the quality of the construction materials. We had gone over so everything so much with him and the architect that we had minimal construction changes. At the end he was not only ahead of time but because without compromising on our likes we received a return for not reaching our targeted budget. John is a wonderful person morally and professionally he is the best. He is so close to our hearts as any member of our family. We have done construction in the past, with friends, but nothing like the joy we had working with John Covert.
Mr. and Mrs. Vilaro


We could not be happier with our "new home" thanks to Covert Homes!  Our remodeled kitchen, family room, entry, and dining room far exceeded our expectations!  John was dependable, easy to work with, patient, and flexible.  Without a doubt, we would look to him for any future remodeling jobs!

John and his workers were very easy to work with. Remodeling is difficult at best especially if you do not move out of the house when the work is being done. John and his workers emphasized with us and did a great job making an inconvenient situation, manageable. All work was completed on time and the kitchen, den, dinning room and sun room look fantastic. John also put a front porch on the front of the house which gives the house great curb appeal. Everyone who has visited our home wants to know who did the work. I do not hesitate to tell them John Covert.

John is a man of strong character with personal and professional integrity. He does what he says he will do when he says he will do it. He is very knowledgeable and takes pride in his work product. He has helped me make good decisions with my remodel.  He is very personable and a pleasure to work with. I gladly and with great confidence recommended him.
Paula Kretschmar

John is extremely organized and prompt at returning phone calls and answering questions. He bends over backwards to make sure his clients are happy. He was very honest about how changes would affect the price and never changed anything without checking with us first. He was great at communicating about the process and set realistic expectations for deadlines.
