We know it can be difficult to take the leap and consider a company with which you have no previous experience aside from our online portfolio. That’s why we ask our clients to write a testimonial about their experience with Herbert & Stork Homes after each project. This is a brand new practice for us, so expect many more entries in the future. We would also like to show you our work in person, which can be arranged by contacting us via phone or email. In the meantime, feel free to read what some of our clients are saying about their experience with Herbert & Stork Homes!



“We had a wonderful experience working with Daman Herbert and Jim Stork during the design and construction of our home. We had heard of horror stories and stress associated with building a house and were not looking forward to the process. After visiting with Herbert &Stork they assured us that it should be an enjoyable experience for us and any stress should be theirs. That is what our experience was working with them. They were always on site, knew what was going on and were very responsive and helpful during all phases. There were no surprises. They were very open about costs and any issues that arose. They were creative and helped in the process of choosing finishes that would look great and stay in budget. They were very attentive to the needs we had that were unique and offered creative ideas and made sure those issues were satisfactorily addressed. After living in our house for six years, we have had NO issues. They aren’t just builders, they are craftsmen who build a solid house and take pride in what they do… whether it is woodwork, tile work or any of the finishes. We had such a positive experience with them, that we are designing and building another home with them. We wouldn’t consider anyone else.”

“Herbert & Stork completed 2 renovations for us – our main floor and our basement. In both cases they totally gutted and replaced the entire structure. They completed 90% of the work themselves and supervised all outside contractors so that work was completed with high quality. They were so helpful and innovative in their design ideas; paid strict attention to details and would only accept the highest quality work from themselves. Their bid for the basement project was almost half of the other bid I received – and they did so much more work! Nothing compares to using a private company that takes such pride in their craft. They were as thrilled as I was at the end result!”

“Daman and Jim designed and built a house for us. Their attention to detail and ability to provide custom work surpasses almost all builders in Iowa. They posses a quality that most builders do not have and that is passion for what they do.”
