Client Testimonials

Portrait Homes Northwest turned our construction grade master bedroom into a luxurious master suite and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Jeff, Trina, and their entire team are wonderful to work with. They are professional, personable, timely, budget conscious, and detail oriented. Their communication is great. Even on days that they may not have been on site, they kept us informed about our project. If something ‘came up’, we knew about it right away, and they told us how it was going to be fixed or our options. They use local subcontractors who are courteous and respectful and had the same professionalism as we experienced with Jeff and Trina.

Everyone who comes over is in awe of our new master suite and it’s all thanks to Jeff, Trina and their team at Portrait Homes Northwest. We take every chance we get to refer friends and family to them, and can’t wait to work on Phase 2 of our project with them down the road.

Grant & Summer R.

We retained Portrait Homes Northwest to serve as general contractor on the top-to-bottom renovation of our home in Forest Heights, and we couldn’t be happier with that decision. Their work was impeccable; no detail was too small to receive less than full attention; and when a structural problem was discovered (and there were some doozies), Jeff and his crew always managed to find a solution that could be implemented without delay and without breaking the bank. We especially appreciated how quickly Jeff and Trina responded to any questions we had, and the assistance of Trina and Laura in sourcing fixtures and finishing materials was invaluable. And then there’s the fact that Jeff, Trina, Laura, and Roger—as well as everyone we encountered from the various subcontractors’ crews—were a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Portrait Homes Northwest!

Judy & Curt M.

We are very much enjoying it (home remodel). Thanks Jeff and Trina. You guys exceeded our expectations both professionally and personally.

I will echo James’ comment, we could not be more thrilled with how our remodel turned out. Jeff and Trina were phenomenal and by the end of it truly felt like family. From taking the time to discuss all the little details, stopping by nightly to check on the process, and even putting up with our crazy pooch, they made this process absolutely seamless. We cannot thank them enough for the wonderful work they do.

James & Melanie G.

We trusted Jeff and Trina Spang to build our custom dream home because of how personable, professional, and reliable they were as a team. After months of working with Portrait Homes Northwest, we couldn’t be happier with our decision and couldn’t be more in love with our new home.

Jeff always went the extra mile to make sure that all of the work done in our home was of the highest quality. His professionalism and attention to detail is the reason why we always felt like we were in good hands. Trina was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and her response time was amazing. Anytime I ever had a question or concern, she responded to my emails immediately.

Our custom home exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Portrait Homes Northwest and I know we will be pleased with the work that they did for years to come.

Tania & Darren R.

Portrait Homes not only transformed our 1980’s oddly shaped home into a beautiful living space for my husband and I but also created an adorable suite for my Mom!  The challenges during a remodel are definitely parallel to a box of chocolates because we certainly didn’t know what we were going to get when the walls were opened for demo but Jeff and Brooks were on top of it every step of the way.  Thanks to Laura’s ability to understand my vision, the kitchen and dining room are absolutely stunning!  This team is nothing but professional but the best part, in my humble opinion, is they all have a great sense of humor!  This is a must during any type of remodel.

Thank you all for the amazing journey and beautiful results as I would not have walked it with any other team!  I would recommend them for any project, large or small.

Tammy W.

Jeff & Trina Spang, owners of Portrait Homes NW, are an exceptional team. As an owner of one of their buildings, my family and I are beyond impressed with the quality, detail, craftsmanship, and overall execution of even the finest detail. We’ve heard on many occasions various compliments from friends and family, but on a recent visit by strangers looking to buy a vehicle we were selling, the visitors were more impressed by the residence and the construction detail than the car they came to buy.

More impressive still, and though our home has aged 10 years since Portrait Homes completed the house, builder Jeff Spang remains involved in guaranteeing that our satisfaction in ownership is maintained. I recommend Portrait Homes NW with my highest rating, 6 Stars if allowed.

Roger & Stephanie F.

We hired Jeff for a kitchen remodel and to update the front of our home. The kitchen was a complete redo from floor to ceiling, counters to appliances. The new entry included a new dormer on the second story roof creating a reading alcove on the second floor off of a two-level open entry way. The roof supporting columns and rock bases modernized the overall look of our home.

Jeff and the people he brought to our project were skilled, professional and diligent. The overall project was on time, on budget and fully within our high expectations of quality. The subcontractors were well supervised and kept on schedule. Working with Jeff was a pleasure since small adjustments to the project were incorporated without complaint.

We view this project as one of the best building experiences we have ever had. We are planning to go back to Portrait Homes when we consider building a new home. They have our highest rating and our thanks.

Roger B.

Wow! What an amazing experience we had remodeling our kitchen with Portrait Homes Northwest. A huge thank you to Jeff and Trina Spang and their Portrait Homes Northwest team.

How many times do you hear from family or friends regarding their nightmare remodel, they were without a kitchen forever and were doing dishes in the bathtub, or eating out every night because they did not have a stove? I bet you hear that more often than not. Well, our experience was different. Jeff’s creativity with making sure that we had a working kitchen during the project was a priority. Jeff made sure that after the demolition, that the sink and dishwasher (which was set on a rolling cart) was functioning along with our stove. We had a functioning kitchen all but 3 or 4 days. Pretty amazing!

We selected Portrait Homes Northwest because of Jeff and Trina Spang’s reputation. Jeff is experienced, knowledgeable, honest, genuine, has attention to detail, creative and the list goes on and on. We appreciated that he was onsite every day. Jeff and Trina responded to text messages, phone call or emails almost immediately. We appreciated that they used local quality subcontractors. Jeff would leave every night from our house saying, “I appreciate the business.” This is the kind of honest and genuine man Jeff Spang is. This team was so grateful for the work.

Portrait Homes Northwest has put together an amazing team. We would have never been able to put together the granite, cabinets and flooring, etc., if it weren’t for Trina Spang and Laura Bakkensen and their expertise and ideas. We love our space! It is so beautiful.

Thank you so much Portrait Homes Northwest. We cannot wait to work with you again on our next project!

Jim & Kelly M.
We were looking to have a brighter space where our family could enjoy meals together – and Portrait Homes delivered this and more! Patient and communicative, they worked with us throughout the project to revise as needed so that we could end up with things even better than originally planned. Quality work and great people, we will definitely be contacting PH for future projects.
Karolyn & Billy H.

Jeff and Trina are not only amazing at what they do, they are top notch members of our community! Prior to selling our home we contacted Portrait Homes NW for a kitchen remodel. The project came in on budget and was completed while we were on vacation in Mexico. Jeff sent pictures of the progress, dealt with a difficult down draft stove and we returned home to a spotless new kitchen! Portrait Homes gets a 10/10 from the Palins!

Jeanne P.

I purchased a new home constructed by Mr. Spang. The house is very well built and I have absolutely no complaints. The few items that inevitably need to be addressed as a new house settles were taken care of quickly and professionally by Mr. Spang. In addition, I have used him for other projects concerning the house and he has always done the work at a fair price and with outstanding results. He is a true professional who always does things the right way and I can recommend him with absolutely no reservations for whatever job he might be considered for.

Gary W.

Jeff Spang and Portrait Homes came to us highly recommended by a real estate attorney and his workmanship on a project to convert our guest cottage into a garage far exceeded our expectations. He handled all of the negotiations and permitting with Multnomah County in a very professional manner and his work on our garage was outstanding. He even made the subs redo some of their work when it was not up to his standard.

Portrait Homes was also the contractor on our son’s complete renovation of their mid-century modern home and they were so pleased with his work that they have hired him to do a complete remodel on the home they just purchased. He’s the best!

Frank M.

We were very pleased with Jeff Spang’s knowledge, skill and craftsmanship during the remodel of our master bath. He is very detail oriented and punctual as well as demonstrating a strong sense of ethics and professionalism. He brought subcontractors in that we felt could be trusted in our home as well as being skilled in their own area of expertise.

During the project Jeff and Trina were both patient and helpful with our questions and/or concerns whether regarding construction or decorating. We would not hesitate to consider Portrait Homes for other projects nor would we hesitate to recommend them to other potential clients for remodel or new construction.

Mary C.

Our experience with Portrait Homes NW was terrific. Jeff and Trina are very delightful and personable. Their communication and desire to get the job done right is what you’d want in a contractor. Construction jobs are an ever-changing animal and Jeff will walk you through the various options and keeps you up-to-date. We were so pleased with the overall experience and our finished product by Portrait Homes.

Steven H.

We had Portrait Homes fix and remodel several things in our home. The best part of having Jeff do the job is the fact that you get someone who not only does a meticulous job at whatever he does but also someone who can make sound and intelligent suggestions. Portrait Homes NW is a reputable and sound decision when hiring for any kind of construction or remodel job you might have. I would say you can be sure you will have the results you are hoping for if you hire Portrait Homes.

Salli M.

In 2011, we employed Jeff Spang with Portrait Homes as our contractor for a kitchen remodel which included new countertops, breakfast bar, backsplash, cabinet hardware, floor tile, removal of a kitchen island and a custom built pantry to match our existing cabinets. Unlike most contractors we have used in the past, Jeff was always on time and delivered on budget exactly what we were seeking. Jeff was always straight forward and friendly. I would recommend Jeff for anyone seeking a “real professional” contractor.

Matt & Tami M.

In November 2010 my wife and I hired Jeff Spang of Portrait Homes Northwest to build our new garage. It was a fairly challenging project since the garage has a large upstairs bonus room and also required that Jeff build around an existing well head and pump system. Jeff handled all the challenges and delivered our project on time and on budget. I couldn’t be happier with the final project and my wife and I give our highest recommendation to Jeff for his excellent work.

Rick P.

We wanted to thank you for making our multiple remodeling experiences much better than anticipated. We ended up being very pleased that we chose Portrait Homes Northwest for the job. You were honest, extremely hard working, and always went the extra mile to make sure things were done right. You treated our home as if it was your own and we appreciate it very much. We have, and will continue to, recommend you to anyone that we hear of wanting to remodel or build a house and will use you again when the time comes.

Dan G.

We would be happy to have our names used as a reference for your business.  Our family room is working out great.  You completed the addition on time and on budget just the way we had hoped.  We also appreciated the daily cleanliness of the work site.  You would be our first choice for any additional projects that we might have.

Joe & Sandi C.

Jeff Spang and Portrait Homes Northwest did an amazing job assessing and fixing a leak we had in our kitchen ceiling. Our main concern was living with a ceiling that had a “patch job”. When it was all said and done, we’re happy to say that you can’t even tell where the ceiling was fixed! They were in and out quick and cleaned up fantastic afterwards… Great job Jeff and Portrait Homes Northwest!

Bart H.

Jeff Spang was the contractor for additions and alterations on a residence for which I prepared the architectural drawings and specifications. Both I and the client were well pleased with the completed work. I found him to be one of the few contractors I have worked with during my 35 years of professional experience whom I can unreservedly recommend…I found his pricing to be fair, his approach to the work thoughtful, reliable and skilled, as well as performing and completing the work on schedule and in a timely manner.

Peter H.

When we first sat down with Jeff Spang, owner of Portrait Homes, we were impressed by his honesty and their teamwork concept of construction.

We chose to work off of engineered drawings and not hire an architect. The Portrait Homes team made this concept work for our 1300 sq. ft. Retirement home in Columbia City. Other than a few hitches on my part this process was a success.

We highly recommend Jeff, Trina and Brooks for any project large or small.

Sue & Phil W.

If you’re looking for attention to detail then Portrait Homes is the company to call. I have worked with Jeff for over 10 years and it’s always a pleasure to do so.

Mindy S.

Thank you, Jeff and Trina, for our beautiful kitchen remodel. We are so happy with the results and the amazing turnaround time!

Amanda K.

Portrait Homes has done some extensive remodel work for us. We were extremely happy with the quality of work and professionalism. We highly recommend Portrait Homes Northwest.

Tania & Darren R.

Jeff with Portrait Homes did a great job building an addition onto our house. The project was completed on time and on budget. The job site was always kept clean and organized. We would not hesitate to ask Jeff to do another construction project.

Joseph C.

Reliable, trust-worthy, honest, sincere and dedicated professional. Very pleasant to work with. Jeff is a perfectionist, so you can count on the project to be what you expected and on time. Would highly recommend Portrait Homes Northwest for your building/remodel needs.

Denise C.

Tom and I are happy to recommend you and your company to prospective clients…You exceeded our expectations. Even though the project itself was relatively small, we certainly would look to you for any further upgrades…We would be most happy to recommend Portrait Homes at any time.

Tom & Marylin W.

Portrait Homes Northwest provided us with exceptional service, workmanship and honest advice. Jeff is hardworking and very reliable. We would certainly hire them again.


So happy with my house, so a big thank you to all your team for all their work that made it happen.

Joyce K.
