David replaced my roof after a hail storm. He handled all the insurance work and did an excellent job of walking me through the insurance process and set clear expectation of how the job would proceed with time lines and was very good with communication, so I always knew where we stood and what to expect next. When the roof was complete David's crew did an excellent job of cleaning up.
Every time I called he was quick to get back to me, and even did a small chore for me a couple of weeks after the installation no questions asked.
I would definitely recommend U Name it to anyone who asked, and gladly use him again.

David and his team completed a roofing job for us after a hailstorm. The process was easy and they did a great job, they were able to do our house and garage roof in 1 day. The work was excellent and they did a great job on clean up afterwards. David was also able to help us navigate all the claim paperwork with our insurance company. I would highly recommend them!

David did a great job on replacing our roof after a recent hail storm. It was not a simple process dealing with insurance, but David understood how to navigate it as easy as possible. The roof installation went smoothly and they had a good attention to detail. Definitely recommend David!

Our experience with U Name It Construction was quite positive in several ways over the course of a major home remodeling project. First, David Lincoln, the owner, is quite meticulous in the work he does, and he expects the same attention to detail from his subs. Second, he communicated well with us at every step of the process. The opening bid was clear about what was known and not known, including costs and timeline; we knew from the start that there were a number of projects in the queue ahead of us, and we were kept apprised as to our starting date as other worked progressed. As we worked through the project, communication about undiscovered conditions was immediate and well documented. None of the change orders came as a surprise, and the costing of them was reasonable. Third, David has a good design sense; he was very helpful in presenting design options for unusual spaces. He listened to our ideas, but offered good guidance on keeping the design clean in the oddly shaped spaces in out house. Though he has very clear ideas on what works and what doesn't, we never felt like it was his way or the highway. Fourth, throughout the project, as homeowners, we had a fair bit of agency, and we were always consulted on project direction, particularly when the eccentricities of an old house came into play and required unexpected choices. It was a genuinely collaborative effort. Fifth, David operates "by the book" - your project will not run afoul of the city or its inspectors.
Any major remodel takes time and is disruptive. David and his crew made every effort to minimize disruption and keep the rest of our property clean and undamaged. Because they are so meticulous, the work of David and crew seemed to take a while, but the end result was worth the wait.

Last May a hail storm ripped through our neighborhood. We reported the incident to our insurance company and an adjuster examined the roof for damage. The assessment was that 52 shingles would need replacing. We contacted David Lincoln and he promptly responded and spent considerable time in documenting the hail damage. The report was submitted to the Insurance company and they agreed that a full roof replacement was required. We are delighted with the work U Name it did to replace our roof. Thanks David!
- Tom Keljik
David Lincoln remodeled our master bathroom and also completed numerous other things we needed to have done. His workmanship was outstanding. We could not be more pleased with the way things turned out. David is very knowledgeable and professional. My wife and I would highly recommend U Name It Construction.

We recently had our master bedroom remodeled, and several other miscellaneous projects completed by David Lincoln of U Name It Construction, Inc. David did a fantastic job. He was conscientious and always checked with us on our preferences. The quality of his workmanship is outstanding. We cannot say enough how pleased we are with the final outcome. He always kept the job site clean and tidy, and was very easy to work with. We would not hesitate to have him back in our home, or refer him to others. If you are fortunate enough to have David complete your next project you will not be disappointed. Not only does he do superb work, he is a great guy.
- Michael Kaase
David & his team at U Name It Construction did a fabulous job for my hail claim. David took the the time to explain options and worked with my insurance to get the job done in a timely fashion. He was also very communicative throughout the whole process. I highly recommend this company and would likely use them for future home improvement projects in the future.
- Angela Nguyen

David was great to work with on our roof replacement due to hail damage. He always communicated clearly and provided detailed information throughout the project.

David did a great job helping us with our hail claim. He was excellent with my insurance company and made the process easy to complete. His attention to detail is amazing and makes sure you understand all the aspects of the work. I have also used U Name It Construction for interior work, and would recommend them hands down.
- Brian Burbach
David and U Name It Construction re-roofed our home in the Fall of 2022, after it was damaged in a hail storm. David was very professional in walking us through the claim process and how he anticipated the project coming together. Our project went according to plan and was done with much quality and professionalism.
- Barry Saeger
There are not enough superlatives for the work David did in gutting and remodeling our 70-year-old, en suite bathroom. Although the footprint/layout didn't change, it seems bigger and is brighter.
Everything other reviewers have said is true: David is a perfectionist, maybe a little OCD, but that's a good thing! He noticed and fixed potential problems and made good suggestions about different options. He was fastidious; protecting the wood floors in other rooms and the bedroom furniture and cleaning up at the end of each day.
During part of the project, I was out of town. I trusted him completely and he did a great job of staying in touch via texts or phone calls so I knew exactly how things were progressing. Such a treat to return home and see the completed project. My favorite feature is one you can't see: heated floor! Just blissful.
- Carol Gurstelle
I worked with David and U Name It Construction to get a new roof on our house. David was incredible to work with. He worked quickly while being thorough and always clearly communicating what was going on. I would definitely recommend David to others seeking help with a construction project.
- Zach Wright
I have worked with David and U Name It Construction on multiple projects related to my home. David and team kept me informed on the progress and steps for each of the projects. The last one was putting a new roof on my 1910 2 story home. They did amazing work. I will be reaching out again soon for my next project because I trust in the work they do. Thank you.
David and U Name It Construction recently put a new roof on our house. David was great to work with. He was professional, kind, thorough, knowledgable and had great communication. I would definitely recommend him to others seeking the construction services he provides.
- Erin Retelle
David did great work in our house. We ran into a number of hitches to our plan, and David did a good job of presenting us options to keep the project moving.
Small details don't escape David and it shows. The craftsmanship is beautiful and thoughtful. We are very pleased with our new kitchen and bathroom.
I also really appreciated how he cleaned up and kept our home tidy at the end of each day.
As others have mentioned, his pricing was reasonable as well.
- Adam Layne
I couldn't have asked for a better experience when it came to getting my roof redone from hail damage. David is professional, cordial and always on-time. He dealt with our insurance company in a way where our lives were basically stress free. I will only ever recommend U Name It for contractor needs in the Twin Cities!
- Justine Vath
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!
- Mary Haverkost
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.
- Linda Langan and Mark Lindley
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.
- Houzz User Review
Dave is a pro's pro. Outstanding workmanship and very reasonably priced. He repaired two window frames. We will look forward to hiring him in the future.
- Houzz User Review
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
David Lincoln provided a very competitive cost quote for a complete remodel of our main bathroom. After review of 4 contractors, He was hired.

- 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.

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.

I highly recommend David and his company.

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.

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!"

I was very impressed with your neatness and respect for our home. When it is time for another project, our first call will be to you!!! In fact, the front door will be next! You're the BEST!!!
