Comments: Ron was so professional, timely, used quality materials. I also valued that he did exactly what he said he would do when he said he would do it! He matched hinges and size to perfection. A person of their word who does SUPER QUALITY work is A+++ in my book! Thank you so much :-)

Comments: Wow. I interviewed six installers and by far, Ron, the owner of Southwest Contracting was the best. His attention to careful detail was without peer! We had a difficult install of French doors with sidelights and they had to spend considerable time removing the old doors/sidelights and then carefully installing the new doors. Everything looks and works perfect, and my wife cannot be happier. I will add that Ron has the most positive attitude, did not upsell....and spent ten hours making sure everything was perfect including molding and hardware! Iā ll be using him again, too!

Comments: If you need a professional to install a new pre-hung main entry door, plus a new security screen door, look no further than Southwest Contracting's Ron Krueger. He demonstrated very impressive work ethics and skills. Professional expertise was unquestionable in my observation. Additionally, I observed him to be highly motivated, enjoyed his work and very attentive to detail. I was very pleased with the end result. Worked around my schedule and cleaned up after himself as well. Has a great sense of humor. I would definitely solicit his services again. Great job, Ron.

Comments: Difficult job but done exceptionally well

Review Date: 05/24/2017 | Author: Vince S.

Comments: Great company! Ron is a professional and easy person to work with. He came to my home and I explained that I needed a new screen door for my oversized patio door. He measured and provided several recommendations. I received the estimate and expected a higher price but that was not the case. When the screen door arrived I was impressed with the quality of the frame and the upgraded screen Ron had recommended. After Ron installed the door, I truly was impressed, it slid effortlessly and now I can leave the sliding door open to allow cool fresh air into the house. Great job Southwest Contracting! I will use their services again and recommend them to family and friends.

Comments: Ron replaced an exterior and security door. Very professional. He made sure everything was aligned and working properly. I would use him again without having to think about it. Will recommend him to others...

Review Date: 02/28/2017 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Ron was great. Explained everything very well. There was a minor confusion on the quote originally for the size of the door, but I caught it and he corrected it quickly. Work was done in a timely and professional manner. My only "complaint" is that the bottom of the door jamb is not perfect. The metal is held on by additional tape as (he explained) the type of door would not accommodate screwing it in all the way. I wish I had known that prior to installation, but it is fine, as it is an exterior side door that is for functionality only.

Comments: Had to order patio slider. Followed up process. Kept me informed of process.

Review Date: 01/26/2017 | Author: Michael R.

Comments: Ron best exemplifies the type of contractor who sets the bar for other contractors to follow. From the time I contacted Ron he kept me informed and honored the agreed upon schedule. This man specializes in door installation, and has been practicing his trade for many years. The quality of the installation is nothing short of impeccable. Besides Ron's technical skills, he is a wonderful gentleman to work with. I highly recommend Ron and his Company Sourhwest Contracting. He stands behind his work and takes great pride in his workmanship thereby insuring his customers are fully satisfied. Thank you Ron for a great installation.

Comments: Ron is a true craftsman and a perfectionist. My project was unique and required special expertise and a professional that would take the time and make sure the job was done right. Ron is the man. I interviewed several contractors and did not get the feeling from any of them that they were the right fit for my job. I am so glad I selected Southwest Contracting and Ron. I intend to use his services in the future and have no problem recommending him to any one.

Review Date: 01/06/2017 | Author: Jennifer H.

Comments: Ron was the only contractor willing to fix my front doors. All others were wanting me to buy new doors. He did an awesome job in that they work perfectly now. The time, patience and expertise he put into it is greatly appreciated. After 7 years of dealing with it, it's like I have two new doors.

Review Date: 12/21/2016 | Author: Carol W.

Comments: I needed a fire rated exterior door and used Ron with Southwest Contracting. He was very professional, and a great job. Ron is one of those people who likes to get the job done which is wonderful because I didn't have to wait weeks for the work to get done. His prices are reasonable and was easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.

Comments: Ron came through when no one else could. We needed new French doors installed quickly. All others said it would be weeks before they could even get the doors, he came out the day I called him for an estimate and by Friday, within 3 days had the doors from his supplier and installed them on Monday. Great job, nice guy, would fully recommend.

Review Date: 07/25/2015 | Author: Harvey K.

Comments: Ron did an excellent job of re-framing and replacing the side garage door. It looks great. Very prompt, professional, and competent. My highest recommendation.

Review Date: 06/30/2015 | Author: Sharon G.

Comments: I ordered a new back door from their catalog and love it! Ron was extremely helpful in helping me pick out the right door for my budget. My old door only had two hinges, but Ron put three on the new door. This is a standard size fiberglass door I could not find at Home Depot or Lowe's. Actually, Lowe's installer measured the opening wrong and the folks there had to look for a specialty door to fit. After about a month they found one for $1,300. I cancelled the order and promptly went to Home Advisor. Ron is absolutely the best contractor I've worked with and am planning on using him again when I replace some interior doors.

Comments: "Ditto" to all the previous 5 Star Reviews for Ron. Thought we could pull off a DYI. Not as easy as you see on YouTube!! Hiring a qualified professional was the answer. Thanks to Ron, we have 6 interior doors that were perfectly installed!!

Review Date: 06/04/2015 | Author: Matt J.

Comments: Ron did a fantastic job! He came out and repaired the door that was incorrectly installed by someone else and it looks fantastic. He also installed all of the interior doors in the house. Everything looks amazing and we will be bringing him back to install a fire door soon.

Review Date: 05/21/2015 | Author: Shiemaa M.

Comments: Ron is amazing! We needed an exterior back door replaced due to water damage over the years. As soon as I called, not only did he immediately respond, but he came out the same day to measure! And I'm glad he did because the door I would've ordered wouldn't have fit. He was also wonderful at explaining options and exactly what he would be doing. As soon as the door arrived, he went to work and clearly did thorough work to the highest detail. The door is absolutely gorgeous. And when I thought something was off, he had no issues with resolving it. He clearly cares about what he does to the highest integrity! .He is a very honest and hard working person. He's worth every penny and would hire him again for any future projects for our home, so you should too!

Comments: Ron was very knowledgeable about doors. He suggested that I remove the defective screen and use the main door screen...great idea and no charge.The second screen door did not function because of a crack in the concrete floor and he cut the bottom off to make a smooth contour and it worked beautifully. He is truly an expert and very courteous and intent on pleasing as well. I would definitely use him again. Charline G.

Comments: During the bid process we discussed what the job would entail and what items I would supply. He arrived on time the day the installation started. He communicated what was going on with the job. Went he was complete he cleaned up the area. He is an expert at hanging doors and I would use him again.

Review Date: 02/04/2015 | Author: Chris H.

Comments: All the reviews are true. Ron is friendly & an expert at installing doors. He communicates the status of your project all the time (when he orders your door, how long it'll take, etc) and returns your emails, calls & texts promptly. He does a good sweep of the project area to keep debris to a minimum. His price was comparable to multiple bids. Good dude. If you need doors, he's your man!

Comments: Ron was great to work with and did a very professional job. When we encountered an issue with one of the doors (from bad workmanship in the past) he was innovative in his approach to resolve the issue with the least amount of delay/disruption and cost. As others have stated...he was pleasant, professional, and knowledgeable. He was good at returning emails and keeping me informed. I would highly recommend him to others.

Comments: I had some very difficult and heavy Iron double doors from Escon. It was an install project that needed to be done as level and plumb as possible. Ron came in and was within a 1/16 of getting these doors. And he still wanted them better. I could have asked for a better insatll on this projects. I highly recommend any project Ron says he could do for you. The demo was was done and new installed perfectly. Thanks Ron. Your craftmanship is hard to find.
