Here’s What Our Clients Are Saying…
Mary and I moved to Pittsburgh in the summer of 2019. We bought our condo later in the year and began our plans to remodel it. We are Pennsylvania natives, but lived in the eastern and central part of the state and were not familiar with Pittsburgh area contractors.
We began to interview several contractors to discuss our ideas about what could be done in the remodel. Most of the contractors were cooperative, but some were more so than others. Some contractors included design features that others did not. By the time we completed the interviews with these contractors we were happy to settle on Tischendorf Contractor Services because we felt they listened to what we had in mind, we found them easy to work with, their costs fit our budget and their range of services fit our every need as the remodel plan was formed.
We began the remodel in January, 2020 and were eager to complete the process by the end of March. By mid-March, however, the state issued orders to shutdown construction activities because of COVID-19. At that point we were only a few weeks away from completing what we started. At the time the shutdown order was filed, there was confusion about what was covered, what was excluded, and whether an exception could be obtained for a project that was only a few weeks away from completion. Independent of our urging Todd inquired about the ability to complete our job and was granted the authority to do so.
What we started is now essentially completed with some minor work left to do that will be done in the coming months. We are settled into the remodeled unit and are enjoying what we bought.
In sum, we are pleased with the work that Todd’s crew has done as we got to know many of the regulars throughout the construction process. The prices he quoted were the prices we paid. After making an initial payment, we paid for work that was done during the prior week. This kept us up to date and allowed us to put off some of the work until later. Our experience with Todd and his workers was pleasant and professional. We are pleased with our decision, the outcome of the work and we are happy to offer this recommendation to others who are looking for construction and remodeling services.
If that is what you need, give Todd a call.

We hired Tischendorf Contractor Services to remodel our sunroom and we’re very happy with the results. They turned the worst room of the house into the best! We had a very positive experience with this company and would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and use them again in the future.
Tracy L. – Mt Lebanon, PA
Tischendorf recently completed our kitchen renovation and we couldn’t love it more. From the very first interaction with Doug, the sales manager, we were impressed by the knowledge, professionalism and the honesty we experienced. Everybody that we worked with throughout the process truly took the time to go over every detail and really listen to what we wanted. We really trusted their recommendations and guidance through our decision making process and felt very confident going into the project.
The project itself went very smoothly and the contractors were top notch. They were friendly, talented and did a good job cleaning up the dust and debrief through demo at the end of each day. The end result of our project exceeded out expectations. Our new kitchen is so beautiful and functional and it has really enhanced our daily life with two toddlers and busy working parents!
Overall we were highly satisfied with our entire experience, so much so that we immediately decided to start another project – our half bath with Tischendorf. We would definitely recommend Tischendorf to anybody looking to work with a friendly, knowledgeable and experienced team that goes above & beyond in delivering for their customers.
Sara A. – Mt Lebanon, PA
My family’s business used Tischendorf Contracting for a break-room remodel in our office. They did an outstanding job! We are so grateful to them and their staff for being so kind, patient, and professional. I highly recommend this company for any project you may have-they WILL NOT disappoint.
Paige H. – Robinson, PA
When my husband and I moved into our Mt. Lebanon home in 2001, we said we would do a full kitchen makeover. It took 16 years to get around to it, but in 2017 Tischendorf helped us finally realize our goal.
Tischendorf helped us plan the space that used to be our dining room and kitchen with all the things we would need for a livable eating area. The results are wonderful. We thought Tischendorf had done a really good job until we started talking to others in our area who were remodeling kitchens. Then, we realized that Tischendorf had done an AMAZING job. It took only 8 weeks to finish the project which included taking down a support wall; gutting two rooms to the studs; ripping up the floor; removing a door and window and bricking up the exterior; placing a support beam in the ceiling; laying a new hardwood floor; building a custom L-shaped bar and putting in all the cabinets, appliances, and countertops. The price was reasonable and the guys who came to our house every day were SO courteous, kind and diligent. We actually missed seeing them every day after the project was done. How often can a homeowner say that?
Genna C. – Mt Lebanon, PA
When it comes to renovating a kitchen that includes knocking down walls and moving water lines, gas lines etc. it can be overwhelming. Not knowing where to start Todd and his crew guided us into one of the best decisions of our lives. The entire project from start to finish was smooth and on time. His talented employees who pay attention to every detail were on time, neat and helpful throughout the process. I have given Todd’s name out to many of our friends and would recommend his company to anyone. If your thinking of remodeling give them a call. You won’t be disappointed!!
Debbie M. – Bridgeville, PA
“We had our master bathroom completely redone. Only a few days into the project we were so excited about the bathroom that we had Them also install new floors, counter tops and backsplash in our kitchen. I would highly recommend Tischendorf Contractor Services. We had got bids from multiple companies and had been looking for a contractor for 1 year prior to hiring Todd and his team. After meeting with Todd, we knew we had to look no further. Easy to communicate with through the entire project, design was spot on, quality of install and materials was great and the end result was amazing! It’s hard to come across a great company with honest and friendly people, we are already looking forward to having future projects done with Todd and his team.”
Jessica W. – Bethel Park,PA
“We absolutely love our new kitchen! Todd and his team were amazing every step of the way. During the planning process, Adrienne the kitchen designer was absolutely wonderful. She was very patient with us and all our questions, and was extremely knowledgeable about the various companies and products that we could choose. This was particularly helpful because many of our cabinets needed to be customized due to limitations of our small space. She helped us to utilize every possible inch of the kitchen. When Todd’s team started the project, we were impressed by their professionalism, their workmanship and their cleanliness. Specifically: they showed up when they said they would, they asked for our opinions along the way, they did not make assumptions on what we wanted, they controlled the dust better than we thought possible. We cannot say enough about the last point — we were truly impressed (and surprised) by how clean they left the worksite each day.
The counter installers also gave kudos to Todd and his crew: they commented on how easy the installation was because Todd’s team had done such a good job on the cabinets.
The finished kitchen is everything we hoped it would be. Frankly, it’s changed the way we use the space for the better and has improved the feel of the whole house.”
Noel S. – Pittsburgh, PA
“We absolutely love our kitchen and highly recommend Tischendorf Contractor Services for your home remodeling project. Todd and his crew remodeled our master bathroom a few years ago and without hesitation, we chose to use Tischendorf Contractor Services for our kitchen remodel. Before the project began, Todd provided us with a thorough plan and estimate of our kitchen remodel. We were never surprised with unexpected expenses or project delays. He kept us informed of the weekly schedule and provided us with weekly updates. The crew even sent pictures of the kitchen while we were away on vacation! We appreciate Adrienne’s design expertise and her vision in creating the most storage and counter space for our kitchen design. Choosing the backsplash was an overwhelming task for us, but Adrienne was able to find for us a backsplash that truly makes our kitchen stand out. The team did an outstanding job from start to finish! Their careful attention to detail is evident in the exceptional quality of their work. We look forward to working again with Todd and his crew on our next home remodeling project.”
Ryan and Dawn C. – Upper Saint Clair, PA
“I love my Kitchen! Todd and his team did a fantastic job remodeling my kitchen! Polite and professional and easy to work with. Addressed all my needs and concerns while they were working.”
Joneen B. – South Park, PA
We talked to three contractors before engaging Tischendorf to redesign our kitchen. They were not the least expensive – actually pretty much in the middle – but we were really impressed with the team’s professionalism, the re-design they proposed and also Todd’s assurance that they would complete the job according to the schedule they laid out for us. We met with his design team and took almost all of their suggestions. We inevitably hit a few snags along the road but they kept us informed, did their best to resolve any problems quickly and amazed us with the speed with which the job was completed and the quality of the work. Their team was professional and straightforward and they kept their promises. The kitchen is really beautiful and we are completely happy with it. We highly recommend their work!
Holly K. – Pittsburgh, PA
Todd and his team recently installed a new railing and posts on our front porch and stairs. All contact with Todd and his employees were professional and courteous. During the design stage, Todd offered a couple options regarding materials to be used in constructing the railing. The railing is well built and we are very pleased with the quality of work. We would with complete confidence go to Todd for future home renovation projects.
Patricia B. – Bethel Park, PA
I had Todd and his team remodel 2 bathrooms. Both required a total gut job as they were original bathrooms in my 35 year old home. With Todd’s time spent planning, his weekly cost and billing structure and his overall availability to address questions and concerns along the way, Adrienne’s help from start to finish with choosing everything from flooring to light fixtures and John & Sean’s great work and craftsmanship, I have 2 beautiful bathrooms! I can honestly say that I felt like they all became part of our family during my 4-5 month project. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an honest, easy to work with professional company with top notch craftsmen.
Noreen S. – Upper Saint Clair, PA
We hired Tischendorf Contractor Services for a few projects around our house including an upgrade of our kitchen. During the time we first contacted Tischendorf Contractor Services until the work began, we changed the size and scope of our project. We appreciated the open communication with the team to make the changes necessary in modifying our project. We felt the crew truly cared about all of the details. Ed went above and beyond to check in with us and make sure everything was being done to our liking. The crew did a great job of cleaning the job-site thoroughly each day when they finished working.
At the end of our project, Todd and Marla Tischendorf personally came out to our house to review our project. They impressed us with how important our satisfaction is to them and their company. Todd even suggested some unique ideas to address some challenges we had.
We recommend Tischendorf Contractor Services for any of your remodeling needs.
Robert B. – Washington, PA
“Tischendorf [Contractor Services] did a great job adding a deck to our home, the crew was professional and always on time and on budget and it looks great!”
Cheryl B. – Mt Lebannon, PA
“Todd redid our bathroom and did some other work around our house over the past several years. Each time, he and his staff were professional, honest, courteous and overall wonderful to work with. He doesn’t charge too much, yet the materials used and work done is excellent. I would highly recommend Todd and his team, especially for bigger projects where things can get costly and out of hand easily.”
Priya A. – Mt Lebanon, PA
“They did such a great job on our master bath we didn’t even consider anyone else to replace our deck. Punctual, professional, and outstanding quality.”
Kris S. – Mt Lebanon, PA
“I hired Todd to remodel my basement. All the way through the process he was very professional and worked hard to keep my project on time and under budget. In addition, they replaced my bathroom and created a custom closet space for my basement bedroom and office that we built out. I would use Tichendorf Contractor Services again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a basement remodel.”
Alex R. – Carnegie, PA
“Tischendorf Contractor Services did a great job on our bathroom . All the employees are very friendly and courteous. Any problems that came up were resolved. We are very happy with the way it looks . Adrienne did a great job helping us pick out our finishes. I would recommend them.”
Don and Karen M. – Mt Lebanon, PA
“We waited 5 years but when we finally got it done, it turned out to be the perfect choice and right decision to go with Tischendorf Contractor Services. It was easy to make up our minds after our first meeting with Todd. The whole project was managed and executed well in the planned time frame of 6 weeks. We could see progress every day, no time was lost and everything came together beautifully at the end of the stipulated time. Work was clean, professional and every small thing we pointed out was done for us. Now we have this lovely bright space we love to use for cooking, eating and entertaining. We get so many compliments from our guests! Thank you, Tischendorf Contractor Services!”
Sunitha and Deepak U. – Mt Lebanon, PA
“Todd is a man who certainly knows his craft. I have zero concerns referring my friends, clients, or family to him and his staff.”
Sean C. – Pittsburgh, PA
“I located Tischendorf Contractor Services on Home Advisor. Todd called immediately and set up an appointment to review the project. He was punctual and very professional which was great. He provided us with an accurate estimate, and was willing to work with us even though our landlord lives out of state. When the time came to start the project, Todd and his team arrived on time and took great care to protect our home from any damage while the demo was going on. The guys even gave love to the dogs who actually got used to seeing them daily! The work was done quickly, yet very detailed and complete. Each step was explained and they had no issues answering questions. Every day they were here, we saw progress. Our bathroom was small and dated, Tischendorf Contractor Services turned it into a modern, beautiful bathroom. After the work was done, we had to ask them to come out to take care of an additional issue and they came out immediately, took care of it and the bathroom is perfect! I have raved about Tischendorf Contractor Services to anyone who will listen, and have given the number out to several people. This team is a class act, and I am grateful for the work they have done! Professional, honest, reliable. Can’t go wrong with those traits!”
Pam and David B. – Beechview, PA
“Todd Tischendorf and his crew were very easy to work with. Communication was solid from the beginning to the end with easy access to Todd via phone or email. The project brought many challenges with the age of the house and lack of level surfaces, but you would not know it to look at the kitchen. They have an attention to detail that is rare to find in construction contractors today.”
Mike S. – Mt Lebanon, PA
“Did a fantastic job. Very highly recommended. Easy to work with. Listens to the customer.”
Jerry and Jan C. – Mt Lebanon, PA
“In 2014, Tischendorf Contracting Services remodeled our galley style Mt Lebanon kitchen. Our kitchen was a typical Mt Lebanon galley, narrow and extremely small, but when they finished it was an open kitchen/dining room with all the amenities. Tischendorf Contracting Services took the time, listened to our do’s and don’t list, and in the end made our kitchen the center point of our home. From the start, we stated we wanted our new kitchen to complement the style and era of the house.Todd and his team guided us through the process in a professional manner. The job foreman Jamie was amazing! He answered all of our questions and even made suggestions on how to make our kitchen flow better. At one point in the process we decided to make a change to the kitchen island and he made a suggestion that took the finished product to the next level.
We would highly recommend Tischendorf Contracting Services to anyone that is thinking about updating their kitchen. From start to finish, Todd and his highly qualified team delivered in design and quality. They started on the job when they said they would, coordinated all sub contractors and supervised their work while we were not at home. During the construction and demolition, Tischendorf Contracting Services was professional, they left our home clean and were respectful of the rest of our home. When issues came up,Todd and his team were able to solve the problem and provide a solution to keep the project on schedule.
So if you’re thinking about a new kitchen, you should definitely consider Tischendorf Contracting Services.”
Michael and JoAnne B. – Mt Lebanon, PA
“When I first met Todd Tischendorf, I felt an immediate connection to him and his way of conducting business. He was conscientious, personable, courteous and very professional. He gave me ideas as to what could be done to bring the bathroom up-to-date and was very patient with me as I made-up my mind, then changed it, and then made it up again. I had several contractors come–Todd was by far the best. The two professionals who did the work were quality men in their fields. Always on time, neat, and great people to work with. They went beyond the call of duty in many aspects of their work. Jaime designed the placement of the floor tile and tile on the wall. His artistic ability certainly came thru. I had an electrical panel that needed updated and they explained to be what needed to be done and why. A recommendation was made to me and I followed thru with that contractor. They are truly professionals in their field. I enjoyed having them here and the bathroom looks absolutely beautiful. I plan on having Todd update my kitchen in the future. I have no complaints about the workmanship or workers–they are great! We need more contractors like this company.”
Karen B. – Bethel Park, PA
“We are very very pleased with Tischendorf Contractor Services. At all times, they were courteous and professional. They did an excellent job with the tile work and installations and both bathrooms look fabulous. They also created a built-in shelving unit which looks just great. They worked cleanly, were detailed oriented and just did a fantastic job. We are very happy with the results. We will be contacting them for a kitchen remodel bid soon.”
Karen M. – Pittsburgh, PA
“We started our bathroom remodel with a different contractor, who ended up being completely unreliable. In the midst of a demolished bathroom (down to the studs and floor down to cement) and our first contractor MIA, we called in Todd and his team. They were great from start to finish. Seeing the pickle we were in, Todd fit us into their busy end-of-year schedule, and did so at a reasonable price. I was impressed from the start because I had already decided to use the Schluter line of waterproofing products as the underlay for our floor and the wallboard that the tile would be placed on. Up until Todd, none of the other contractors I had spoken with had even heard of Schluter, let alone exclusively used it. I was pleased to hear that Todd not only knew of Schluter products, but always used them in his bathroom remodels. I am always worried about mold in the bathroom, so his knowledge of Schluter products came as a relief. The overall work done was top notch. They re-leveled the entire floor before laying our new marble floor, and Jamie did a great job tiling our walls. They also uncovered some knob and tube wiring and promptly had their electrician in to fix it. Todd was very professional and kept us up to speed through the entire project. Also, they worked each day from 8:30 until around 4:30. There were even a few days they stayed late to finish the day’s current task. From dealing with other contractors that show up at 10 and leave at 2, this was a nice surprise. I finally feel like we have found a contractor who is honest, reasonably priced and reliable. No more searching for an honest contractor for our next project!”
Lindsay S. – Mt Lebanon, PA
“He is a good contractor, his prices are great and he does great work. I used Tischendorf Contractor Services. The last time, I had him do some painting and he finished up some handyman stuff that I had remaining to do because I was putting my house in the market. Besides that, the same year he had remodeled my bathroom for me.”
Dygretta G. – Pittsburgh, PA
“I wouldn’t consider anyone else for the work they do.”
Heather R. – Bethel Park, PA
“Todd and his crew are top notch. Quality workmanship, efficient, and thorough. Highly recommended!”
Joe S. – Pittsburgh, PA
“We absolutely loved your team & and our bathroom!! We’d do it all over again! Thank you!”
Rikki H. – Mt Lebanon, PA
“Like many home owners, we have had bad experiences with disreputable building contractors, particularly in building a major addition to our home and other major repairs . This resulted in substantial anxiety and significant financial loss due to a contractor refusing to complete contracted work for which we had paid in full. Consequently, we were very cautious in looking for another contractor to do major remodeling work on our basement, master bathroom and other projects. Luckily, we found Todd Tischendorf through Angie’s List. Todd came highly recommended with a “A” rating. Still, we were cautious.
Todd not only did the contracted work, but was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in providing various ideas to improve our projects. Todd went the extra mile in making certain that we were satisfied and that the work was first-rate. As an example, our basement ceiling was a hodge-podge of boxed-in duct work, pipes, and beams which previous home owners had covered with cheap acoustical tiles. Todd streamlined the construction and provided additional height in the ceiling by eliminating unnecessary obstructions and installing drywall. Todd worked productively with the local municipal building inspector to make sure that the updated elements of our old construction were now up to code. He transformed a crude cinder block “bump-out” into a great office and studio space, raising the ceiling, constructing a new roof and installing new flooring. In addition to making major renovations to the master bathroom, Todd also installed a closet in one of the bedrooms. The work was done so precisely, that one cannot tell that the closet is not original to the house.
Todd also works seamlessly with other contractors. When the bump-out was being remodeled, Todd worked closely with the window installers to insure that our job was done properly. In other words, when you are Todd’s customer, he looks out after your interests and makes certain that every aspect of the project – even those that are not his primary responsibility – meet his very high standards. In addition, Todd is not only very knowledgeable and conscientious, but he is also very considerate and he actually listens to the homeowner. He has often gone the extra mile in making sure that his customers were satisfied, often adding extra touches which bring additional quality to the project. He is also very patient and understanding which is a major plus in dealing with homeowners.
Todd’s work ethic and attitude are also reflected in his staff. Not only does he carefully select good, knowledgeable craftspeople, but he makes certain that they and their work reflect his strong customer-centered work ethnic and dependability. This attitude extends to Todd’s subcontractors, such as electricians, plumbers, etc. Todd is very selective and hires only those who meet his exacting standards. We have had Todd’s team do additional work for us and we have always been highly satisfied with the result. And, if there is ever a problem, Todd never hesitates to send someone over to correct the issue. From time-to-time we have had emergencies and Todd has immediately sent someone to correct the problem, often within a short time after contacting him.
Todd is not only an expert craftsman and contractor, but he is also a relationship builder. He cares very much for his customers and their projects and, in turn, his customers continue to place their trust in him and in his fine workmanship.
We would not hesitate to recommend Todd Tischendorf to anyone; he is first-rate. These days, one must unfortunately be very cautious when engaging vendors and contractors. We have every confidence in Todd and trust him implicitly.”
Jack S. and Dave M. – Bethel Park,PA
“I contacted Tischendorf Contractor Services to install a bar in my basement after reading some really great reviews online about the company. Todd got right back to me and came to my house to give me a free estimate. I thought the job would be a tough one but he assured me that they could get the job done and his estimate was fair. They also kept in contact with me anytime I had a question and worked with my schedule. There was no job too big or too small for them. They did get the job done and took all of my concerns into consideration. They absolutely exceeded my expectations! They were fast, efficient, professional, and the quality of the work is top notch! I am SO happy with everything! I will definitely be calling them first for any work that I need completed! It is great to have someone who I can trust that does quality work for a reasonable price. I have been looking for someone like that for a long time.”
Crystal M. – Dormont, PA
“Todd and his crew did an excellent job and pulled off a tough schedule to meet our cabinet and appliance delivery dates. His work is top notch. Always available to discuss issues as they came up. Was very fair with changes from original scope of work. We highly recommend Todd and his Company.”
Charles J. – Bridgeville, PA
“Todd responded to my phone call very quickly. We set up an appointment within the next week. He kept the appointment (believe it or not…many contractors I contacted did not show to the appointment), and he was punctual. He took his time with me, and I felt he really understood what I wanted. Ultimately I could not use him, but only due to a restriction with my lender. I would have gone with Todd if possible, and I’m confident his professionalism and attention to detail would have carried through the entire job.”
Patricia B. – Castle Shannon, PA
“I cannot say enough good things about Todd. He went ABOVE AND BEYOND to not only help us, but to put us in touch with some wonderful colleagues. He is punctual, reliable, and quite talented. You won’t be disappointed.”
Amy C. – Pittsburgh, PA
“Todd and his team do great work, they are reliable and look at the whole problem to solve yours. The team cleans up, and is fair with their quotes. We recommend them to all of our friends.”
Jeff and Nanette S. – Bridgeville, PA
“Exemplary contractor service. Everything we were looking for in a contractor. Good communication, thorough and detailed estimate, punctual for scheduled appointments and work, exceptional results, and a working website. We had an opening between two rooms on the second floor added. Will definitely contact again for future projects and recommend to others.”
David T. – Pittsburgh, PA
“They were fantastic. They were a pleasure to work with, always on time and did a great job.”
Julie D. – Pittsburgh, PA
“He was very good. I could not be more pleased. He was wonderful. I could not be happier. I was totally pleased. It was very nice. They were on top of things. They were prompt and polite. I could not say enough about them. I would certainly use them again in the future. I used the services of Tischendorf Contractor Services. He and his partner replaced a kitchen, a bathroom sink, faucets and they did plumbing underneath the bathroom. They put on two brand new doors for my upstairs bedroom. They replaced ceiling tiles that were damaged. They placed a fluorescent light in the cover for that. They did some eye-hooks for me in the doors, which were little things that I needed done.”
Gail B. – Pittsburgh, PA
“Todd did a great job. He is very collaborative and has excellent suggestions. He has a good balance between cost and quality making him an excellent value. His team is great and he has excellent contacts for work in the South Hills.”
Michael J. – Mt Lebanon, PA
“Todd met with my husband and I so we could talk with him and get an idea on how a bathroom remodel was to go since this was our first. He was very polite, courteous and listened to what we wanted. Once we approved his estimate he gave us a list of what to purchase which helped a lot. I like that they started when they told us they would and completed when they told us they would; which was a huge plus since I had to go out of town with our son during the remodel. They contacted me with any questions they had if my husband was not around to answer. I would recommend Todd and his crew to anyone looking for a trustworthy, affordable and professional work to be done.”
Adam T. – Verona, PA
“Todd is great to work with and multi-talented. These were actually several small projects I grouped onto one report. We have an older home with unusual hardware, and Todd attacked the patio door locks like they were his own, locating spare parts for us and even finding the lock drawings online so he could fix them. Todd always told us exactly what he was going to do, and the bill always matched the estimate. He really cares about quality, and cleaned up very nicely. His rates are reasonable and he shows up when he says he will – I really can’t say enough about how great Todd is to work with – we will use him again many times.”
Peter S. – Mt Lebanon, PA
“It went well. Due to the cold winter and so much demand, it was difficult to continue to get the contractor’s time to finish the project, but we got it finished in a reasonable amount of time. His team are trustworthy and have a good work ethic, They went beyond the original work list to repair a few extras, which we very much appreciated. I recommend them.”
Janet M. – Mt Lebanon, PA
“Overall, it went very well and I am pleased with the result.”
Marilyn V. – Mt Lebanon, PA
“We were satisfied with the project. It went smoothly.”
Randall B. – Pittsburgh, PA
