David is masterful, reliable, communicative and an overall good human being. His perfectionism is greatly appreciated by a fellow perfectionist. The quality of work by he and his craftspeople is extraordinary. I love my new bathroom!

David Lincoln did a remarkable job on our renovation project. We have never had a better experience with anyone we have used previously. He is thorough, dependable, honest, realistic, and honorable. We’ve never had anyone who paid such close attention to detail. He explained what was happening throughout the project, immediately alerted us to issues that arose, and worked with us to develop solutions to those issues. He worked well with sub-contractors as well. On top of it all, David is one of the nicest people you’d like to meet. We would recommend him wholeheartedly and unhesitatingly.

Our project was a complete remodel plus adding a dormer to the upstairs of our 100 year old home. David's work is extremely high quality. He is not only great at construction but is an excellent carpenter as well. All the work he did was fabulous. I also appreciated how well he communicated with us and included us in the decisions and design of the project.
- Marcia Meredith
David and his crews have done several projects for us, including gutter replacements, replacing our backyard walkway, and some general home repair jobs. David is always easy to work with, upfront about possible issues, and reasonable with costs. We have been so happy with his work that we keep hiring him to do more, and we strongly recommend him.
- Sarah Hewitt
We worked with David on a storm damage roof replacement and had a great experience. All communication was timely and professional. He was very helpful in navigating all aspects of our claim and ultimately the project itself. Highly recommend
- Josh Lacey
We recently worked with David on replacing our front door and basement windows. Not only did David do a fantastic job, but he was knowledgeable and honest with both projects. He let us know all of our options, and what he thought the best plan was for each project. Despite running into (expected) ‘old house’ problems, David kept us in the loop with each problem and the best way to solve them which we appreciated. We thoroughly enjoyed working with David and already have a few other projects in mind for him down the road. I can’t recommend U Name It Construction enough!
- Chloe Vasby
David was recommended to us by a neighbor. He was polite, friendly and professional. He installed a new front entry door and screen door. He made sure to fix the existing problem first, before he put the door on. He communicated the issues and how he was going to solve them. I gladly will give him more work around our house! He took care of the whole project, from ordering items, installing and cleaning up.

U Name It Construction helped our family with an insurance claim. We needed extensive repairs to the ceiling and floor in our kitchen, and repairs/replacements in two bathrooms. They were wonderful advocates for us. Communication was great throughout the entire project. The COVID-19 Stay at Home order was met by U Name It Construction calmly with a lot of tenacity and willingness to work through some odd challenges. I am grateful to them for making sure my refrigerator was accessible throughout the entire project. They made sure we were as comfortable as possible during construction. U Name It Construction completed the job skillfully, with attention to detail (we love our new kitchen grate that is styled right for our 1895 house), and a good sense of design. We valued their advice on color, materials and placement.
- Karen Shanahan
David remodeled the kitchen in our 1920s house and it looks fantastic. We had a small space and he helped us relocate appliances in a way that made sense. He does a lot of the work himself that keeps the project on time and within budget. His subs were great too. His part of the project came in at around $30,000, despite having to do extensive electrical work when we opened the wall, and he finished it in about 10 weeks. I highly recommend David Lincoln and U Name it Construction.
- Jean Boler
David did two separate jobs for us. A roofing project and an interior ice dam repair. I really appreciate his insight and ability to problem solve and talk through a project and give you his honest opinion of how to approach it. He is the only contractor of several we have used to finish a project ahead of schedule.
- Michael Brown

- Karen Dame
David did an amazing job finishing our basement. With any older home comes challenges and David handled things smoothly and always let us know that they would get done right. He communicates clearly and always kept us in the loop. He has great attention to detail and holds those that work for or with him to the same standards. Our basement is beautiful and we could not be happier with the outcome.
- Amy Muller
I have used U Name It several times over the past 15 years: first for a bathroom remodel, then a complete kitchen remodel and the addition of a half bath, and most recently for work leveling my front porch, installing new doors and gutters, and a few other odds and ends. I can always count on David Lincoln to go the extra mile to get things right, to give me good advice, and explain things thoroughly. I am extremely satisfied with his work.
- Jennifer Gunn

U Name It Construction replaced siding and roof on our house. David helped us decide on the scope of the projects and choose appropriate products. He is knowledgeable and worked with us so we would make decisions that met our desires and budget. We were kept informed of progress. The city inspector commented on the good job done on the siding. The work area was cleaned up really well. We would use U Name It Construction for another project.
- Jean Bryant
I just had an excellent experience with U Name It Construction and David Lincoln. Earlier this week, David put a new roof on the back of my house. He responded quickly to my request for help. He was very professional and personable, and he kept me well informed at each step of the process. His price was reasonable, and the quality of his work was excellent. I highly recommend David and his company.

- Aaron Fabbrini
We chose David’s company for a total exterior remodel (new windows, doors, siding, insulation, chimney rebuild, entry overhang, roofing, etc.) and are thrilled with the result. David’s attention to detail and consistent communication made for a very smooth project. The craftsmanship was exceptional, and we have received many complements on our old home’s new look in an historic neighborhood. It was a pleasure working with David and his skilled subcontractors. U-Name-It Construction will be our first call for our next project. Thanks again, David!
- Julia Welter
Dave and his team were awesome to work with! I especially appreciated his communication style and approach.

David Lincoln is an exceptional contractor. He has terrific judgment and does impeccable work. His prices are reasonable and his estimates are honest. He is extremely professional, knows his trade at all levels, and does beautiful work. He handles issues that arise with ease and creativity and is a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. I recommend him highly and without reservation.
David and his crew saved my home! We coordinated with a geologist, architect, house mover, excavator, heating & air, plumber, electrician, block layers, and carpenters. The house needed a new basement. We preserved the top two floors, demolished the basement, and added an addition to accommodate a new laundry, stairwell and entry. David is patient, has amazing building skills and is knowledgeable about codes, and great at coordinating his crew. My favorite part is that he is an honest worker and always is willing to expand his knowledge to perfect his project.
My new home is nothing short of a miracle . We are currently landscaping his beautiful building. David saved my 100 year home and made it sturdy enough to last another 100 years.
- Bonnie Rohow
David listened to our needs, offering suggestions for a simple remodeling project of our front porch. He promptly answered questions. Work was excellent. His crew cleaned up after the project.
- Kay Schwebke
David of U Name It Construction was professional from the start, through the completion of our 3 bathrooms renovation project. He provided detailed estimates prior to construction. During construction he worked with us to keep us informed of the progress and accommodated any changes we made. His workmanship and attention to detail is excellent. We are completely satisfied with our newly renovated bathrooms. We highly recommend U Name It Construction for any home project you may have.
David and U Name It Construction completed three projects for us between this past September and December. The first involved replacing four windows in our garage, and also wrapping deteriorated door trim with aluminum. The second project was the replacement of a bathroom exhaust fan and venting it to the roof. The final was a new roof on our house done in early December.
We were quite happy with the outcome of all three projects. David kept us informed as to when he would get to us, and how things were progressing during the work. He is very responsive to phone calls and emails. His roofing crew was efficient, completed the work in record time, and did an excellent job of cleaning up after.
We enjoyed working with David, and have already made some referrals. I’m sure we will hire him for future projects as well.
- Pat Kane
David Lincoln at U Name It Construction is so thorough and detailed in his approach that he pulled off several exterior projects without a hitch. We had him reside our house with Hardi-board siding and wrap our trip in aluminum. He roofed our house in one day including repairs to the sheathing and installing vents. You can have every confidence that you're working with a highly skilled and extremely competent person when working with David!
David was wonderful to work with. He is extremely thorough, knowledgeable and professional. We had a bit of a construction emergency and he followed through with timeliness and craftsmanship. We would definitely use U Name It for future projects.
David is very knowledgeable. He is fair. He has a solid work ethic and he insists on quality work from his crew I had a major remodel. David and his team completed he work on time and within budget.

He lives up to his logo that no job is too big or too small. He has done small jobs for me too which ae also well done. It is great to have a contractor to trust and know you can call to get the job done well.
I hired this company for two separate projects. An update of my master bathroom and the renovation of my mothers bathroom and kitchen. Both projects exceeded my expectations. My bathroom came out great and I love all the choices regarding tile vanity and tub. My mothers house was getting ready to sell and needed to update her kitchen and bathroom both came out beautifully. I’ve referred this company to others and would hire her again with my next project

Thanks for everything, I am very pleased with the entire process and the end result. Great service and communication, high quality craftsmanship and fair price. I'll definitely use again in the future, and recommend to others.
- Seth Weeks
In our experience, David and U Name It did the job right for a fair price. David renovated our master bathroom in a 1929 home, providing modern updates while being sensitive to historical concerns. Yes, he is very professional, communicates well, and is a perfectionist about the details. But he goes beyond that: he's not easily stymied by the unforeseen challenges of working on restoration in an older home; he's a problem solver. We love the results and would recommend David and his company to anyone.

David Lincoln, Owner, is a brilliant, knowledgeable General Contractor. He and his fellow subcontractors thoroughly assessed my Garage and sidewalk needs. He and crew showed up when he said they would and stayed until the job was finished. They also did a fantastic clean up job.
This kind of caliber of worker and workmanship is hard to find these days.

Thank you so much for your advice and excellent work to develop and finalize an almost complete remodel of my floor plan. This remodel happened during a very challenging time, and I had no concerns/qualms that the work and work ethic would be exceptional. The house is now more liveable, attractive and comfortable and meets the disability needs we now have. People who come to my house are amazed at the change and tell me I have a "lovely home". You have completed other projects for me and Ida and, based on those experiences, I knew I not have to worry. I also appreciate the advice when the working with the architect. You are very knowledgeable. Thanks,
"David, Sue and I would like to thank you for the recent bath remodel, floor and door installation. The hearth turned out terrific and the floors are stunning. Your suggestions for the tile work and shower door in the bathroom worked out perfectly! We love it! We really appreciated all the guidance you provided through out the entire process. Your workmanship was impeccable and your knowledge of what needed to be done was reassuring. No question we will be calling you for any future projects and we will certainly recommend U Name It Construction to our friends and family. Thanks again!"

"Dear David, Thanks so much for the pics. Until I looked @ the before picture I hadn't realized how absolutely disgusting the bathroom really was. Putting on blinders can be a beautiful thing.
