Axtell Construction has performed extensive remodeling and numerous improvements on my apartment building on the corner of Olive Street and Clay Avenue, both exterior and interior. The work has been complex and required not only strong knowledge of structural engineering, but a finely tuned aesthetic. In all ways, Joe Axtell and his workers have exceeded my expectations. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Joe Axtell of Axtell Construction has been a subcontractor and window customer of Mesko glass and Mirror Co and Thermolite Inc for the last two years. His work is exemplary with compliments from housing authority executives to private owners. He sets his schedule, lives by it, and finished his jobs on a timely basis. He works cleanly and safely with a full awareness of all OSHA worksite standards . Joe is also a certified renovator as designated by the joint EPA-HUD curriculum for lead based paint.

Montrose Area School District could not have been more pleased with the work of Axtell Construction. As the General Contractor, they not only served as the primary builder, but also coordinated with subsidiary contractors including the electrical, mechanical, heating and plumbing. Joe and Esther did a remarkable job of coordinating all of those efforts and it resulted in a building that is both functional and beautiful. Obviously, we are thrilled with their work. As the superintendent, I found Axtell Construction to be responsive and timely to all of our concerns in all phases of the construction process. They worked hard to ensure that our needs were met during the project and met all time lines and financial projections that were established.
