What Our Customers are Saying About Us


AUSTAD CONSTRUCTION in Saint Paul, Minnesota, provides excellent remodeling services for residential and commercial establishments each time out. This has earned our construction company much-appreciated praises from numerous clients, as the testimonial below shows:

"In 2006, our church was damaged in a severe hailstorm and required a new roof. Several contractors were invited to survey the damage and make recommendations. Mr. Austad was by far the most knowledgeable of the group. Especially when it came to areas of the roof where, in his words, it was designed to leak. Indeed, during the previous 10 years, no fewer than three other companies had tried to fix leaks in the roof and failed."

Nice House

"Mr. Austad worked with the insurance adjuster to make sure all of the necessary items were included in the claim. He persevered, and all of the necessary steps were taken to ensure  that the new roof would have the longest life possible. He also recommended another company to replace the copper sheeting on the steeple."
"Before work began, Mr. Austad made sure that the flat roof adjacent to the pitched roof was protected from damage, and the crew working on the project was aware of the potential for damage to adjacent structures. During the project, worker safety was stressed by the project foremen because of the steep roof."

"Mr. Austad suggested adding additional insulation to the sanctuary roof to improve energy efficiency at the time the roofing project was being done. His plan added, I believe, an R-value of 11 or 12 to the roof, which had an existing R-value of 4 or 5."

"This added insulation had made the church warmer in winter and cooler in the summer, and has reduced our energy consumption. The plan implemented for adding the insulation was efficient, included a ventilation space for the roof, which did not exist previously, and did not alter the overall appearance of the roof. The ventilation should also improve the lifespan of the shingles."

"The cleanup after a job of this scope is important, and the crews did an outstanding job in this respect."

"In 2007, the church experienced water leakage in the bell tower, which was an area not covered by the other roofing job. We contacted AUSTAD CONSTRUCTION, and Mr. Austad again provided an innovative solution to the problem which should not recur as long as the building stands. The innovation extends to some of the masonry which had deteriorated, and is not completely covered."

"I can recommend AUSTAD CONSTRUCTION without reservation."

The roof looks great and your crew was outstanding.  Very impressive!

Dave, We are so pleased with the way our new roof looks. It was a pleasure to work with you and your employees. They were, at all times, professional. They did a nice job cleaning up the site after the work was completed.

Dave, I want to thank you and your guys for your help and a job well done!

Dave, by the way, my neighbors were impressed with the roof and with the workers.  They were amazed at how clean the yard was and that no plants were damaged! (me too!)

Very fast and professional.

Austad Construction performed a flat roof replacement. Their bid was right in the middle of four that we got but the estimator, the business owner himself provided the most thorough explanation of how the work should be done so we chose them. The job was completed on schedule, there was a slight oversight, human error but the company responded right away and fixed the problem to our satisfaction. Austad was professional from first contact through bids, construction, clean up and follow up.

-Mark O.

Austad is very professional and I'm happy with their work. I got 4 estimates; Austad was lowest, had the best warranty, and was most likely to still be in business to honor the warranty in the future. Dave gave the estimate onsite and provided me with a packet of info about materials they use, warranty, references. I called several references and everyone I spoke to was very satisfied with the quality of their work. The crew was very efficient and hard working. They did a great job on the roof and cleaning up all the debris. They even sent their own inspector out the next day to check the work. Would definitely recommend Austad!

-Scot J.

Very pleasant to work with. Although a couple of small problems arose, they dealt with them in a timely manner and left us feeling we had made an excellent choice in hiring them. I was very impressed with how clean they left our yard and gardens. 

-Liz M.

We are very happy with the service performed.  We had them do much more work than just the roof. 

-Robbinsdale, MN

The flat roof was installed perfectly. The only problem we had was a mis-communication on our part over the design of a fence and railing we wanted replaced around the edge and an error on Austads part in the way it was originally installed. Austad was very accommodating. They redesigned and replaced the fence to our satisfaction. The crew was very nice to work with and very professional. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who needed their services.


Allen Austad was very nice and worked to establish a good personal relationship and did not just want to get the contract signed and the job done. The work they completed was beautiful. The workers did a great quality job, but they were messy and didn't do a very good job of cleaning up. They removed lumber stickers/tags and threw them in the yard and left cigarette butts all over the place. I also had to clean scrap lumber, screws, and other construction debris out of my gutters and grass. Overall though I was very happy with the job.

-Mpls, MN

Dave, thanks for the fine job. You were right, your crew was fast and minded their own business. 

-Raymond & Diane R.

The building inspector came by today to approve the roofing you did on our house. He was very complimentary of the quality of your work. I just want to say a big thank you for the responsiveness from you and quality of work from your roofing team in replacing the shingles on our home due to hail damage. I commend Earnest and his team on their great work ethic and speed in getting the job done without sacrificing quality. Thanks to Al for stopping by numerous times to check on the work and handle any questions that I had. I felt a real commitment from you that I did not get from two other roofing contractors and that meant a lot to me.
