Here is what Amber said about Straight Ahead Construction

“We were very happy with the bathroom remodel Straight Ahead construction did for us. The bathroom turned out beautifully. It was done on time, and within budget. We hope to hire them again for future projects”

Here is what Travis had to say about hiring Straight Ahead Construction LLC

“Mike and his crew were simply excellent to work with and I couldn’t be happier with the job they did. I had a somewhat unique construction need where I wanted to do much of the work on a home addition myself and on my timeline but needed professional help for some of the more involved and consequential tasks. Mike was very willing to work with me and accommodate my desires. When unexpected issues arose, as they always do with a renovation, Mike and his crew identified creative solutions and then worked with me to determine which one best suited my needs. Extremely knowledgeable, professional, and competent, yet always willing to learn from and investigate new options, Mike was a true pleasure to work with.  Plus, everyone I interacted with at Straight Ahead Construction were genuinely nice people… exactly the type of folks I look forward to doing business with again. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.”

Testimonial for Fairbanks Alaska General Contractor

What Jeff says about Straight Ahead Construction’s work

I echo all of the positive testimonials supporting Mike Knoche and Straight Ahead Construction: quality craftsmanship, good listener and communicator, friendly and consistent, quick, creative, straight forward, and a capable, caring contractor.  Mike earned all these accolades the old-fashioned way: he’s a damn hard worker who takes his craft seriously and listens to his clients.

My wife and I were preparing to sell our house and Mike helped us with several projects.  In addition to small pre-emptive upgrades (drywall repair, new trim, interior painting, and more), Mike was a godsend after we received the engineer’s report that required a major project on the home’s pad and post foundation.  With the pressure of a looming closing date and a labor-intensive project in the cramped crawl space under the house, Mike and his crew came through for us quickly, carefully, and professionally.  
Highly recommended.”

Jeremy and Dianna’s review of Fairbanks Alaska contractor and bathroom remodel

“Mike and the crew from Straight Ahead Construction did a bathroom remodel for me.  Our bathroom is on the small side and Mike put a lot of thought in how to maximize the usable space that we have.  The final result has been great and it really does feel like a bigger bathroom becasue of the thought put into the layout.  The crew was efficient, professional and did an outstanding job.  I would recommend them to anyone, particularly for custom jobs where you need a professionals advise.”

Another great impression made by Straight Ahead Construction, LLC

“Mike Knoche and Straight Ahead Construction undertook a major renovation on our 28 year old home during the summer of 2013. Essentially they took off the roof, replaced it with a new highly energy efficient roof, added an upstairs bathroom, and renovated most of the home from the top down.

Despite a very late spring that caused our project to begin much later than anticipated, Mike kept things moving along smoothly from one part of the project to the next. Plumbers, electricians, painters, etc., were all lined up and ready to begin work as soon as needed.

From the beginning of the project to the end, Mike worked with us to ensure that we stayed within budget while getting as many improvements and little luxuries as possible. Throughout the entire renovation (and even afterward) Mike was always available for a quick consult or to share his creative flair and expertise as we tried to decide on materials and fixtures.

I very much appreciated that the house and yard were kept as clean and neat as possible given the scope of work.

Our renovated home is warmer and more comfortable than it has ever been. The bathrooms and finish work are beautifully done. It would be difficult to overstate how much we are enjoying our “new” home.

Mike Knoche and Straight Ahead Construction will be our first call when we’re ready to build the new deck and stairs.”

Read what this Fairbanks, Alaska resident says about their experience with Straight Ahead Construction,llc

siding contractor fairbanks alaska

“It was a small miracle to not need to climb up and down a ladder to and from the loft. The

stairs are beautiful. Only wish we had called BEFORE the baby was born!

Hey Team of Straight Ahead,

Thanks for transforming our home this summer. It went from a funky cabin to a swanky

house! The transformation included double paned windows, steel siding, finished

bathrooms fit for a king, and safety rails in the loft. The deck added a spectacular finish

to the house that we will enjoy for beers to come!

All the work was done in a friendly and consistent way that let my family and I focus on

other things this summer. Thank you for making it happen!

-Maya S., Fox, Alaska
