“We are so glad that we found IBS Builders to replace our old retaining wall.
The wall had been slowly buckling for several years and we had asked several
contractors to give us quotes to replace it but we were reluctant to move ahead
because we didn’t really feel confident that any of them were offering the right
solution or that they could really handle the scope of the job or the tricky
logistics involved.  However, we felt from our first conversation with IBS about
our project that you knew exactly what to do and how to do it to solve our
problem.  You didn’t disappoint us in any way.  You told us up front when you
could start and approximately how long it would take to complete the job and you
adhered to that timetable and finished the job on a timely basis.  The crew was
polite and hardworking and happy to answer our questions along the way.  The
quality of the job you did is obvious and we are pleased that you were able to
avoid damaging an adjacent wooden deck and hillside garden.  We are very happy
and would recommend IBS highly.”

Three years ago my husband and I got in touch with IBS Builders, LLC for an addition project. I had grown up in the Penn Yan area but moved out of town and when I returned I ask around. IBS Builders had a reputation for quality work at a quality price. Our addition was to match our existing ranch style home. We enlarged two bedrooms, a basement and bathroom.  Once that job was completed, we had a new handicap accessible deck built a one and a half car garage on an existing two and a new driveway.  We are currently schedule for the spring of 2014 for a new shed and repair of an outside building.

The partners, Tim and Lance and their team have been exceptional. Their cost is fair, the work is done in a quality manner and we have enjoyed working with them immensely.  I have a forever lasting relationship with the Strong boys and their helpers.

I would recommend them highly.

Because of the challenging terrain, exterior work came as the result of concepts, experience & skill. Without knowing exactly what the finished product would look like – IBS has always exceeded our expectations!

We are pleased with the talent & professionalism at IBS & would strongly recommend them to others!”

Thanks Lance, Tim & Terry!
