I found working with Joan and Creative Surfaces to be a very excellent experience.  Not only does our finished product look fantastic, the journey to get there was a breeze.   From Andy in design to Brandon and the other installation experts, I could not have been happier with the finished product.  Were there glitches along the way?  Of course a few but the team handled
them with superior professionalism and worked until we were completed satisfied.  The team was more than willing to work with our crazy clinic schedule even working weekends and nights.  I would highly recommend visiting with Creative Surfaces before you start your next project.

Workplace has done business with Creative Surfaces for 15 years, and they have never failed to answer the bell in delivering on the whatever challenge we present to their team. We are now in our 3rd location, and the CS team has done custom work for us at each site starting at our original downtown location in the late 1990’s. When we acquired the Dakota Avenue property and embarked upon the extreme makeover of our iconic old round building, we knew we’d need the Creative Surfaces touch again given both the nature of the remodel and the distinctive look and features we were after. From the interior signage, feature wall and unique curved reception desk do the milled stainless countertops, Mike Lokken and the Creative Surfaces team exceeded our already high expectations in this most recent project. A week simply does not go by without a client or guest commenting on their work, and the feedback is overwhelmingly complimentary. If you really care about the end result, Creative Surfaces is your only choice.

Joan Gebhart exemplified excellent commitment to details plus the ability to complete the entire project within budget. Tamra and I are convinced that choosing Creative Surfaces to enter into a design-build contract was the best decision for our dream fitness studio. We were able to make necessary adjustments to design throughout the job, all the while keeping aware of the impact on the schedule and the budget. We found that the key to a successful design-build firm is choosing an honest, sophisticated and competent company like Creative Surfaces. Thank you for a job well done!

We worked with Joan Gebhart and the team at  Creative Surfaces on the design and finishes for the EpiCentre front desk and retail areas.  Creative Surfaces is a Gold’s Gym preferred vendor.   From the design team to the installation team we couldn’t be happier with the finished product they produced for our gym.   Our project was completed within our time frame and budget and we are absolutely thrilled with the end result.  Joan was fantastic to work with!  She  and her team are true professionals.  This being our second project in the last year with Creative, I knew that we were in great hands.  Joan’s creativeness, expertise, and attention to detail, allowed me to totally rely on her decisions and let me focus on other areas of our getting this club up and running.  That’s how much trust we have in her and her team.

We recently opened a new branch and are glad we used Creative Surfaces for our signage and digital display.  We provided them a short list of our ideas and their team used their expertise to exceed our expectations.  They completed the job within our time frame and were professional and helpful throughout the project.

Dear Mr. Pins –

I wanted to take a moment out of your busy day to provide you with feedback on the team that coordinated the project for Kingley Health.  I am sure there were many other players involved but I only had the pleasure of interacting with three, Joan, Isaac, and Cody.  I could not have asked for a better team than the one that was provided.  Through this entire project I have had to interact with multiple vendors for various parts of the project.  The team that I worked with from Creative Surfaces was superior.  Joan, proposed ideas and guidance in our project that were completely on point.  She managed the project from start to finish with professionalism, enthusiasm and always with the client in mind.  She truly understood that the first relationship is always the most important and have no doubt that she provides this level of service to first timers as well as long timers.  Her level of communication with me at every step was superb and there were never any surprises.  Her honesty was refreshing.  Her guidance was refreshing.  Her patience and understanding was refreshing.

Isaac and Cody were equally superb on site.  I have had to deal with electricians, plumbers, equipment installers, other millwork installers – I was truly blown away by the two of them.  They arrived on time every day.  They cleaned up and kept the area tidy every day after their work was complete.  They always communicated not just the problems but also the good things.  At no point, did they say “Well that’s what it says so it’s not my problem.”  They worked with the situation and made modifications as necessary on the fly. Not to mention the quality of their work and attention to detail.

The reaction we have gotten from our members on the quality of the design and carpentry has been outstanding.  We had one client just stand staring at Tazi’s Cafe with her mouth open speechless.

Ryan Kehl at Performance Foods put together a great layout and the Creative Surfaces team made it into a beautiful reality.

You have an excellent team and wanted to take a moment to recognize that.
