I am incredibly impressed with D.E. Carroll. Matt was responsive and personable throughout the process, and his team did an amazing job restoring the facade of my house. I was particularly impressed by how quickly they knocked out the work: from first message to job complete, it took less than a week. And it looks like a whole new house! Great work all around—would hire again without hesitation.
Eduardo and his team did an amazing job on our dormer addition/bathroom renovation. Its difficult renovating and building in an occupied home and he and his crew were nothing but gentlemanly, respectful and kind. They kept the house and work space as clean as possible and were very respectful of our private space. The project fell directly within the schedule allotted in our contract and true to his word, there were zero changes orders even as we adjusted elements along the way. Eduardo himself is a very easy person to work with. He is always available and will respond to any concern or need any time of the day or night. If youve ever done any sort of renovation, I dont think theres anything more highly to compliment than responsiveness and Eduardo scores a 10 in that category. The end result is the bathroom we dreamed off, inside and out. The tile work is amazing and we are equally impressed with the exterior finishing and detailed time spent matching the new to old on our 1890s home. We would not hesitate to contact Boston Best Construction for future projects, knowing the time and attention we would receive. Other details of our renovation including pictures can be found at www.birdsofberwick.com Thank you, Eduardo!
Jeff and Bobby did a great job with building new stairs to basement, building a washer and dryer hookup upstairs, and doing other handy work and work on gutters for us. They were very kind and professional.
Mr. Andriello came to my condo to access an ice dam in a 6 unit building. He gave me a quote later the same day and was prepared to work the following day. He arrived at the designated time and completed the job within 4 hours. He removed all ice from the walkways that had fallen from the roof. In addition, he sprinkled ice melt on the walkways to ensure the safety of the owners. I am impressed with Mr. Andriello's professionalism and attention to details (applying ice melt). I recommend his services.
Although we did not ultimately use Bob for our home improvement, I must say that he was a true professional -- reconfirmed the visit, arrived on time, kept up apprised of the status of the quote, and was reasonably priced. We would certainly call upon him for any future home improvements.
Brian did great work for our home renovation projects (new floor tiles in the front foyer and new exterior stairs in the back yard, and more projects on the way), and at reasonable price! He is professional and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Brian to anyone!
I hired Bruno to pour a new floor (12x20 slab) for my detached garage. Bruno was a pleasure to work with. He was responsive to both phone and e-mail comms, which I appreciated. He kept to his overall schedule well, but should offer more heads up when shifting appointed work times. Bruno charged a good price, much lower than a few other quotes I'd received and in line with the other low bids. My job had its quirks, and Bruno was pretty easy-going about the whole thing. He was casual but professional and didn't cut corners. At one point where he needed to give the concrete time before the next step, Bruno just sat there waiting as night fell. I would have been tempted to rush the process and get home, but he waited the required time before finishing. The quality of the final product is really about durability, which I obviously can't comment on at this point. The finish work is fine for a garage, but could have been more uniform and smooth. Overall I am pleased with the final product, the value, and I enjoyed working with Bruno, something I often can't say about contractors!
Baystate Group Associates recently finished our 750 sq foot basement and the end result far exceeded our expectations. Victor stayed engaged with my wife and I daily throughout the project and kept us updated on the progress daily. I don't think the basement would have come out as it did if Victor didn't make several great recommendations along the way in regards to the basement layout, fixtures, colors, and other specific details. The team's that were at our house at various times throughout the job made sure that everything was clean and spotless at the end of everyday. I highly recommend VIctor and Baystate Group Associates for any refinished basement, remodeling, or building needs.
Professional, gives great feedback and ideas; pays attention to detail. Highly recommend for your home project needs!
We hired Joe to redo our old stairs in our home. They needed A LOT of work and he did an unbelievable job- custom fitting each stair, working with me to determine a color and even increasing the size of the stairs to give us a bit more room. He was extremely respectful of our home - very neat and clean, always closing doors when going in and out, etc. Reallt appreciated his hard work and would definitely recommend him for any of your home jobs.
Dermot and his helper Fabian have fixed a complicated water problem in my cellar and refinished my basement. He also has replaced windows, helped me with ice dams and drainage from clogged gutters and supervised the installation of a new roof. Dermot thinks carefully about each project and comes up with good solutions. I highly recommend Dermot as a contractor.
Without question, we are very happy with Andrew Winter and would hire him again for our next renovation project. We hired Andrew (Drew) Winter to handle a kitchen, bathroom and laundry room renovation in our recently purchased home. After evaluating many contractors, including contractors recommended to us by family and friends, we decided to go with Andrew. From our first meeting we felt comfortable working with Drew. He was upfront and honest, provided fair pricing and a realistic payment schedule and was an excellent communicator. Many times answering my calls, text and emails before and after normal business hours. At the end of the day, he is the type of person that just wants to make things right. In a little less than 8 weeks, Andrew transformed our 1935s kitchen, bathroom and laundry room into a modern marvel. There were many obstacles along the way and living though a renovation can be very challenging, however Andrew went above and beyond to keep our home as functional as possible and we appreciated his honesty, guidance, positivity and dedication to our project and happiness. What started out as a few minor renovations to make our home more livable for a few years turned into what we would be happy to call our forever home. That being said, Drew is already talking about the house he is going to build for us in a few years.
Alex was very knowledgable and helpful with problem solving a few odd jobs around the house. I am already planning on hiring him again for some larger renovation work.
We are applying FEMA for our new home. Paul is punctual and explain everything we need to know. Now our application is in process. He provide a very good service.
Hired Chris to do multiple projects for us from landscaping to a new deck we highly recommend.
The job was to completely remodel my kitchen, including incorporating another room, opening the kitchen to the dining room, relocating the powder room and adding a mudroom. J.L. Stone was great. Very neat. They sealed off the construction and I was amazed at how little dust got through, even during demolition. They were very respectful of me living in my home during the remodeling. The specifications and allowances were clear. I wanted to be able to use the kitchen by the first day of school and they met my timeframe. Most important, the finished product was beautiful and still is, several years later. I was so pleased with the company's work that I hired them to build a patio and pergola in my backyard. I recommend this company without hesitation.
On professionalism: Curley was very knowledgeable. He knew exactly what to do and how to fix issues around my condo. Not only is he an expert in his industry, he has a lot of connections to help with other issues. For example, my home needed plumbing, electrical, and a bunch of other things. He knew great contacts to fix those issues. I am an impatient individual and I can say I feel confident in Curley to get things done at my speed. He is responsive at all hours and days. He never seems 'too busy' for me even when he is with other projects. On work quality: Fantastic! I couldn't ask for better. Every crack, hole, patch or imperfection was covered up and looks like new. I am not one to let the small things go and he lived up to my expectations. Colors are evenly distributed. There were no uneven patches especially in the corners of the walls. On behavior: Very easy to work with or should I say was able to deal with me. I know I am a meticulous and stressed individual and if he can deal with me, he can make any customer happy. Curley is honest and respectful. He genuinely wants to help you not to rip you off. His prices are affordable. I ended up giving him extra for all the work he put in because his work was worth it. Also, he and his guys will clean up after themselves so you don't have to worry about a mess after they are done! Highly recommended. Honestly, don't look anywhere else. Curley&Lad's is your go-to.
Our house was a 1955 ranch-style house with 3 bedrooms, one bath, kitchen, and living/dining room that we moved into in 1995. We had been looking to add a second bathroom and had originally worked with an architect from NH to do a modest front and rear bump out to give us more room to fit in a second bathroom. This architect had to withdraw from the job and recommended David Kinsella of TBC. David initially made some modest changes to the plan that made sense. After some further discussion, in which my wife and I raised the possibility of a larger scale project to modernize the style of the house, David developed a plan that essentially rebuilt the house except for our previously remodeled kitchen and original foundation. This new plan converted our house into modern design with a more open floor plan, completely new roof line, loft space, re-finished basement (and the second bathroom). David was able to fit this into an only slightly expanded footprint in order to comply with town regulations. Throughout the process, David kept our budget in mind and would typically present different price options for us to choose from to allow us to come up with a reasonable comprise between price with style. In addition TBC worked with the town to make sure our design stayed within our zoning and conservation restrictions. After deciding to go ahead with the project, we interviewed several contractors and decided that TBC brought us the best value for our money and would also allow David to oversee the project as needed. We started the project in June 2011 and completed the project in May 2012. The project did take several months longer than expected, but did stay on budget. The major problem that occurred that delayed the project was that in the summer of 2011, the original subcontracted framers were being sent to other jobs by their boss even though TBC was told they would be coming to our job. Hence, instead of working full time on our job, they were working less than half time. Eventually TBC had to fire them and find a new contractor to step in. At the time we felt that TBC should have replaced them sooner, but perhaps this was difficult due to contractual obligations. (We also found this first group of framers were slobs who did not have much regard for the fact that we were still living in the house.) By the end of summer 2011, the house was not completely framed and roofed and number of rain storms (including hurricane Irene) slowed down progress further. In mid-October we were still living in the part of the house and we agreed at this point that we would move out to allow for a more efficient work flow. From this point construction generally proceeded ahead, except for a few delays do to weather and scheduling conflicts that arose for other subcontractors, no doubt due to the significant delay caused by the no-show framers. In the end the house is beautiful and works for us better than we could have imagined. While the house has not expanded much in terms of square feet, the open floor plan and high ceiling/roof line combined with increased natural lighting gives a much more expansive feeling inside. From the curb, the house has modern angular green metal roof with cedar siding and one has to look hard to find any resemblance to the original house. At the completion of of the project, TBC was very responsive to completing punch-list items and other minor issues that arose. While my wife and I certainly had stressful times during the renovation (and certainly did a lot of second guessing our decision to renovate rather than move), we always felt that David had a personal interest in getting the job done correctly and making sure that we were happy in the end. In that regard, David was very accessible by email or phone before, during, and after the work. In summary, David Kinsella provided the creativity to design a renovation plan that was truly transforming for our house and TBC was then able to see the plan through to successful completion.
Highly recommend Adam for tile replacement. He took up an old floor and replaced new tile with new thresholds. Work came out great and he left the space very clean.
