"Our project required a contractor that was an expert in land development and people management. After interviewing several local companies, we decided on Jack Lichtner of Proland Development, who proved to be exactly the person that we needed to design, implement and complete the work. His contractors are professional craftsmen from soil evaluation and grading, tree removal, construction, custom cabinetry, flooring, electrical work, painting, masonry and design. We were extremely pleased with the work that Jack Lichtner did for us, including adhering to our budget. We highly recommend Proland Development Company for their experience and professionalism."
- Tim and Pax Lattimore, Raleigh NC
"We love working with Jack and his team at Proland Development. Last summer they did an outstanding job when our house needed a new back
porch, roof and some exterior freshening up. When it came time to renovate the interior, we knew just who to call. Jack is great to work with. He is professional, patient and gracious. We always know he has our best interest in mind. His work is completed efficiently and effectively -- and within budget. Our house is beautiful -- inside and out. We would recommend Jack to all of our friends and neighbors!"

"First, let me say thank you for being so very attentive to my questions as requests. I've worked with many wonderful contractors in the past, so I was very impressed with how quickly you were able to get things resolved and deal with my many questions. Kudos to you for being available by phone or email. Second, you have some of the most professional subcontractors assisting you. I was impressed with not only their competence, but also with their professionalism. They also were gracious in answering my questions and explaining the process to me. Their work was top-notch. I truly appreciate your willingness to work with the HOA guidelines as well as the road construction that impacted the progress. Although it was frustrating at times, your willingness to readjust the schedule was wonderful. I also like that you were able to "get your hands dirty" when necessary to make things happen. It certainly made the outcome better than I imagined when I began the project! All in all, I couldn't be happier with the final product! The addition of a bedroom, full bath, family room and kitchenette has added much more than functionality to the previously unused [basement] space. It has increased the value of my townhouse and has given me space that my neighbors envy.
Thanks again for all you did to make this project successful. When I get ready to tackle my next project, you will be the first person I call!"

"Jack and the Proland Development team recently completed a double car garage conversion into a master bedroom/bath at our home in North Raleigh. We discussed moving and searched for new properties to meet our needs however we always returned to our home because we loved the location and property. The decision was made to add on the final piece which would make our home perfect. This was not an easy task to find a contractor who understood and had the experience to duplicate the architectural exterior while providing the quality details to make this room truly special.
We had a vision however many mistakes could have occurred if Jack had not understood and assisted us in the development of the plans, materials suitable for the project and discipline to our budget. His knowledge, experience, suggestions and attention to the details throughout the project are responsible for our total satisfaction.
We received three bids, all pretty competitive however after speaking with Jack we were convinced he was the person for the job. The team started and the project was completed on time in 90 days. We were kept informed daily so we understood every detail of the scheduled work. His craftsman were trustworthy and considerate to our privacy throughout the project making sure the property and work area remained clean so our daily life was not interrupted.
If you are considering investing in your home Jack and the Proland Development team would be an excellent choice."

"Dependable, considerate, punctual, dedicated to getting the job done right… these are words that describe Jack. We worked with Jack over several months deciding what products to use for an outdoor fireplace, screening under our deck, and creating a ceiling for the underside of the deck [as pictured here]. Throughout the entire process Jack was willing to do the homework to find the right options, help us keep our costs down, and work with the right people to create a fantastic new outdoor living space. We were so pleased with every aspect of the project and the fact that, once we decided to get started, the project was completed in a timely manner. Jack was undaunted by our requests to perfect this, caulk that, alter this slightly… We would call him in a heartbeat for any future work and recommend him without hesitation."

"I am happy to write this testimonial as to the outstanding job you did in renovating our home in Cary, North Carolina. From start to finish, you were realistic, honest and thorough. The entire project began in April 2008 and was completed the following October and included demolition of existing walls, renovation of an existing bath, addition of a bedroom, expansion of the kitchen, addition of a butlers pantry and 1/2 bath, expansion of the media room, addition of a covered rear porch with fireplace and replacement of the rear deck. Oh, and don't forget the cart barn under the porch for the golf cart along with the circular driveway, replacement of cedar shake roof and extensive landscaping. From your initial quotation to our final walk through, your many years of experience at home building helped my wife and I make good decisions along the way that vastly improved the end product. Your estimates for both time and money were accurate and you delivered the keys to two very satisfied customers."
- John T. Roos, Cary NC
"We decided to have Jack Lichtner build an addition to our home in Raleigh. Jack offered a free estimate as well as architectural ideas. He had me select cabinets, flooring and lighting to estimate the job. He was professional, thorough and neat. The price was fair and there were no hidden costs or fees. I would highly recommend Jack Lichtner as a contractor. In fact he added a covered porch on my parents vacation home at Lake Gaston [pictured here]. They had several estimates and I was pleased they decided to use Jack Lichtner. I knew they would receive quality work from an honest person."
- Sharon Lubbers, Raleigh NC
"As a Realtor, I know many good builder. But, when it came time for us to make a major (100k) addition to our house I called Jack. I knew Jack had taken several drafting courses through the years and it was very important to my wife and I that the new addition did not look like an addition. We provided Jack with a draft of the space we hoped to add - a 2 story area to right side of the house, dug out for a storage basement, extended the front porch and boxed out the window. Jack was at the house each day to make sure things were on track and that we were not being disturbed in the rest of the house. He came in on budget and the only overages were self inflicted and expected. After the job was complete he was quick to respond to any needed follow-up. I strongly recommend Jack for any additions or remodeling work you may be considering. At the end of the day we all want to do business with someone we know and trust. Jack is that person. I have recommended Jack to several friends and clients and they are all very happy with his work."
- Joe Ward, Re/Max United, Raleigh NC
"My wife recently wanted to do a minor expansion of our screened in porch. After asking around for referrals, we decided on Proland Development. Jack Lichtner handled the entire project and helped greatly to put our ideas into practical focus and make the expansion exactly what we'd hoped for. In spite of lousy weather, he got the job done fast, neatly, and with no problems at all. Although it was a very small project, Jack treated it as if it were a big one. Thanks, Proland, for a job more than well done!"
- Dr. and Mrs. Rick Booth, Raleigh NC
"Last summer we decided to do an addition to our house. Jack Lichtner not only had great ideas but he and his workmen were a treat to work with daily. He delivered the project on time and on budget. We would be more than happy to recommend him to anyone (in fact, we already have)."
