I would give LMD Design and Construction more than 5 stars if I could. My husband and I recently purchased a home in Boston Metro and we wanted to have the downstairs painted before we moved in which meant that we needed someone who could meet the specific and short time frame. Lori, the owner of LMD Design and Construction, was one of several contractors who provided estimates. The job itself consisted of painting the kitchen, dining room, and living room walls, painting all the trim (around all the windows, baseboards, and doors), painting all the interior doors, installing crown molding and hanging wallpaper on one wall. Painting the trim was quite the task because their were cracks and gaps, unevenly applied brown stain, and paint from the walls that dripped onto the unprotected baseboards. They were able to expertly paint and repair all of the problematic trim. I hired LMD for several reasons and I am so very happy that I did. Lori was incredibly personable, honest, she gave me a very fair quote, and could meet the timeline without sacrificing quality. I was very impressed by her extensive knowledge, valuable advice, and a trustworthiness that was immediately palpable. She stood out not only from the other contractors, but from contractors in general. During the entire process she was available to answer my questions or give advice and always responded in a timely manner. For me, it is of the utmost importance that I can trust and truly rely on people with whom I do business - especially those who come into my home. Lori and her employees proved very trustworthy, punctual, and apt. I was actually shocked by the high quality and attention to detail - they even went beyond what was listed in the original quote when I changed my mind TWICE about which wallpaper I wanted hung. Adam, who works for Lori and did the painting and wallpaper installation, is an expert painter who can paint a stunning mural by hand or paint letters or phrases with expert precision - he is a true artist. Like Lori, who has a background in interior design, Adam also has an excellent eye for design and helped us to find the perfect, and final, wallpaper- which by the way is GORGEOUS, and he even went out of his way to meet us at a design store where the wallpaper samples were located. We plan to use LMD for several projects of different scales down the road. To be clear, LMD does do small jobs like mine, but they can and have remodeled entire houses, and built homes from foundation to completion. Based on other reviews and references, my own experiences of working with various contractors over the past 15 yrs, and most importantly my experience as a LMD client, I can say without a doubt that this company is one of a VERY FEW who possess the rare qualities of dexterity, expertise and trustworthiness that set them apart from other companies. Metaphorically speaking, you could compare LMD to a restaurant that has, for instance, 100 + menu items that vary from sushi to lasagna; are all reasonably priced, consist only of high quality ingredients, are expertly prepared never fluctuating in consistency, and promptly arrive at your table.

Details: Home • 5 rooms • Trim • Walls • Doors • Window frames • 1,000 - 1,500 sq ft • Under 8 feet • Repainting - color change • Excellent - clean and smooth • No, I will move the furniture or wall hangings myself

I hired mother construction in June of 2021. The bathroom was completed in April of 2022. The bathroom looks nice. I am happy with the end product. The process to get there, however, was extremely drawn out. Mother Construction’s contractors did not communicate well with me. I also got the impression that their contractors did not communicate with them well either. The contractors would tell me that they would be there a certain day and then they wouldn’t show up and wouldn’t tell me when they would actually be there. This went on for months. There was a clause in the contract that I signed with them that in hindsight I should have taken issue with. It stipulates the job would take 2-3 months from issuance of permits. In hindsight I should have asked how long it would take to apply for permits. I did not predict that it would take them 4 months to apply for permits. It ended up taking 4-5 months from issuance of permits to complete the job. Mother Construction needed to do a better job at managing and communicating project timelines. They completely demolished the existing bathroom in August/September which included tearing down the walls/ceiling and jackhammering open a trench in the slab foundation. The bathroom then sat in that condition until February. I did not find being left with a demolished bathroom while they did not communicate with me to be a pleasant experience. If Mother Construction was going to be unable to work on the bathroom for several months they should have waited to demolish it until they were ready. I cannot recommend Mother Construction.

Details: Full remodel of bathroom • Update style • Replace fixtures • Fix other damage (mold, termites) • Family bath (shared by everyone) • Home

Lori and her company helped me with the renovations of an older townhouse and modernized the kitchen, bathrooms and unit overall. Her attention to detail and eye for design was exceptional and my place came out amazing. I would highly recommend Lori to anyone.

They need to communicate more if not able to make appointment. Potential customer should not have to follow up with the contractor to see that they are still coming to look at the project it is there responsibility.

Details: Full remodel of existing bathroom • No plumbing fixtures will be relocated • I'm not sure, need professional recommendation • No existing plans, but have a good idea of what I want • Update the bathroom's look • Family (full bathroom shared by everyone) • Residential

Mother Construction Corp.'s reply
After running late from our other morning meeting, we reached out to let the client know and we requested to change the appointment time to be flexible to their schedule any day or time the following week. This was the first time we had changed an appointment with this client. It was a holiday weekend as well. We were polite and flexible and accommodating. I am sorry that this client did not see how accommodating we were. Our clients are are top priority... The client then falsely stated that he hired us in order to post this review.
