About the Klappenberger & Son Philosophy

A Message From the Owner


I am always reluctant to use superlatives that make ridiculous claims that border on impossible.  So as I am writing the “About Klappenberger & Son” page, I feel compelled to use words like integrity.  Why?  Because with over 1000 reviews on the internet, there is not one testimonial that challenges that presumption. 

Yes, we make mistakes. But we fix them when we do.

We don’t tolerate, encourage, or let short-cuts slide by.  And because we preach “inspect what you expect,” we have fewer quality-related issues.

In conclusion, I am very proud of our team.

As a property manager, I have many vendors that I contract for services; however, Daniel is always my first call. Why? Because he is professional, prompt, and provides me with an itemized estimate. Also, Daniel's staff is equally professional, timely, and polite.
