"I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how pleased I am with the new boathouse and
seawall you recently built for me. Working with you and your crew turned what I thought would
be a complicated and painful process into a straight forward and enjoyable project. Your
portfolio of completed projects and overall knowledge of construction at the lake were what
originally convinced me to go with Shoreline Construction. Now that the project is done, I
couldn’t be happier with the results. Thanks again for a job well done."

-Nick Will



"We would like to extend our most sincere appreciation to Suzanne, Derek and the entire Shoreline crew that was involved in the demo and rebuild of our Indian Lake boathouse this past fall.  We are very pleased with the final product and are looking forward to the coming summer season. 

We could not have been happier with the choice to use Shoreline for this project!  Suzanne and Derek did an excellent job of communicating and keeping us informed of the construction progress, and we truly appreciate your flexibility, professionalism and patience."

-Dan and Terry Miles


"Responsible, responsive, professional.  These are words I rarely associate with contractors.  But these words all describe Shoreline Construction and Excavating to a tee. Derek and Suzanne have assembled a team of professionals that exceeded my wildest expectations when I first decided to engage their services.  In addition to the high quality work that they perform, Shoreline excels in customer service and satisfaction. They are flexible in their approach to construction and communicate directly and frequently with their clients. You never have to wonder about the status of your project or how things are coming along.  Shoreline proactively reaches out and keeps you informed every step of the way.  They respond quickly and professionally to questions and concerns, and above all want a satisfied customer.  I would highly recommend Shoreline Construction and Excavating for any construction needs you might have."

"Just a note to express our satisfaction with the work you did at our cottage earlier this year; Aida
and I are pleased to offer ourselves as references to potential customers. Friends recommended you to us based on work you did for them, and you did not disappoint. First, and perhaps of interest to others, I must admit that I was concerned the timetable for our project would “slip” when we scheduled it nearly a year out. It did not, we started within the window identified and work proceeded quickly to completion. Second, once the estimate was accepted, the price was set; I appreciate that. Third, and also much appreciated, was Derek and the crew’s willingness to engage at the job site. All of my concerns related to debris removal from the area, drainage from the yard and settling under the sidewalk were allayed. I am grateful you took the initiative to offer to return to pour the sidewalk and further minimize the emergence of cracks. Lastly, we commend you for your efforts to minimize the damage to our landscaping – other than the area of work itself, all was back to normal within a week.
Again, thank you and all the best, personally and professionally."

"Shoreline was great to work with. Derek and Suzanne are customer focused and made sure every detail of project was explained to us. We love our new boat house and seawall, would recommend Shoreline to our family and friends."

"Shoreline was great to work with. New to Indian Lake and with a property that needed seawall repair I asked folks for references. Repeatedly I was told Shoreline was the one to go with for quality work and reliable schedule. From day one Derek was there on time did and excellent job assessing the project and making recommendations. We were fortunate to have good land and water access, the weather cooperated. Derek and crew went to work. We are really pleased the results exceeding my expectations. Particularly the restoration of existing seawall which was only planned for post replacement and a little straightening. Well they only know the right way to do things and it is straight with new deadmen. Derek and discussed the beach area several times, he listened and made it just the way I wished again adding the professional touch in case I was missing something. Suzanne was there keeping me informed every step of the way, working with the state for permits and such. The one challenge when you are so good is schedule, too many jobs. So it was really good to have the constant updates with realistic expectations and we are thrilled to have the work done for the season. If you
have a waterfront project and you want it done right and appreciate working with good people, I whole heartedly recommend Shoreline! Quality lasts long after the deal."

-Eric Jensen

"Shoreline completed both our seawall and boat dock projects last year and they were wonderful to work with. They are very professional, get the job done right in a timely manner, and their quality of work exceeded my expectations. I love working with Shoreline and wouldn't consider anyone else for future marine construction projects on Indian Lake."
