Testimonials

Karkela has been dedicated to maintaining the highest level of excellence within the construction industry for the last 30 years.  We provide our clients with the highest quality of workmanship, professionalism and service. Our commitment to customer satisfaction is a key factor in our success. Here’s what our customers are saying:

“We are thrilled with the decision we made to choose Karkela Construction for the complete buildout of our brand new Orthodontic Clinic in Stillwater, MN.  The finished product is a thing of beauty, which we are extremely proud of, in no small part due to the entire team at Karkela.  From our very first meeting with Roger Swagger to the final walk through, the process has gone off without a hitch.  They worked seamlessly with our architect, and helped us make choices that fit our budget without sacrificing quality or esthetics.  Any and every issue that came up was resolved in a timely manner.  It seems that every person associated with the company, including our project manager John Warmuth and the women in the financial office, goes out of their way to make sure the client is happy.  A very special shout out must be given to Matt Young, who we were lucky enough to have assigned as our on site superintendent.  He led us every step of the way, answering every question we had, troubleshooting any problems, and working tirelessly to help us make our dream office come true. We have done multiple previous office buildouts, but can honestly say we have never worked with a team as awesome as the one at Karkela. We are extremely satisfied and highly recommend them.  Thank you all for making a stressful endeavor as easy as possible, and most of all for helping us complete a beautiful office space!”

“We made the right decision by choosing Karkela Construction to lead our clinic’s build-out. They were professional, courteous, prompt in their responses and were true to their schedule/deadlines. They also did their best to help us cost-engineer. We’d highly recommend them to another interested client.”
