Testimonials from zeller customers

High quality construction and finished projects aside, we pride ourselves on our relationship working with the customer before, during and after the project.  And while its true that; "A picture is worth a thousand words", we have found that it's extemlely beneficial to potential clients to hear what our past customers have had to say about their experience in working with Zeller on their projects.  We have included a few testimonials below from Zeller customers that detail their personal experiences pre and post construction. 

Customer testimonials

""...As we settle in to our new office, Tiffanny and I would like to thank you for your involvement in our 

office relocation and remodel. We are extremely proud of our new location and are very pleased with the work you and your company performed to make it possible. Clients are impressed and have nothing but great things to say about the remodel."

- Chris Sievers, Vice President SI Elder Law, LLC


"...Over the past four years, Zeller Construction has worked on numerous projects for us and we have been very pleased with their overall work. 

The largest project they worked for us was the building of the Marion Branch, located in Marion, Illinois. This was an extensive project. Zeller's set a mobile bank in place during construction so the Bank would be able to transact business. Once the building was complete, the company then removed the mobile bank and barriers and finished out the rest of the project, i.e. parking lot, landscaping and all other requests. The construction crew was always very professional and courteous to our employees and customers..."

- Beth Williams, Chief Operating Officer, Peoples National Bank


"...In May, 2009 a devastating storm damaged numerous buildings at the Airport. While we were still sifting through the aftermath and trying to come up with a game plan for recovery, Chris Schaber, President of Zeller Construction contacted me to offer their services. Zeller had constructed one of the buildings damaged, so we were very comfortable to have their services, and certainly relieved to have their quick response. 

Throughout the days and weeks to come, Zeller Construction provided an outstanding response to our needs. Initially, this was getting certain facilities temporarily repaired in order to prevent further damage. Beyond this, the securing of estimates, coordination with our insurance providers, and final repairs were all handled very efficiently. Mr. Schaber consistently provided personal attention to the numerous projects and issues we were confronted with which of course was greatly appreciated..."

- Douglas Kimmel, Airport Manager, Williamson County Regional Airport
