Let me start by saying that I wish I could give Wayne 10 stars, but since I only have the option of 5, that will have to do. Our house is over 100 years old and we are preparing to paint the exterior again. Needless to say, we had quite a "honey do" list of odd repairs that needed attention. Clapboards that were broken or rotting, the railings on the front porch were falling apart, back stairs pulling away from the house, decorative trim that was rotting, brick foundation in need of repointing, new exhaust vents, and finally new doors. Wayne responded to my initial request in record time and stopped by later that day to give me an estimate. Of all the contractors interviewed, he was the only one that completely outlined the work needed with a full materials list and cost breakdown. Others were quite vague and wanted to repair or replace more than was necessary, turning the job into something larger than it really was. That is why I decided to hire Wayne, his straightforward honesty and winning personality sealed the deal. Wayne and his crew started the job immediately and completed it in good time. They cleaned up the yard after and disposed of all the waste materials as well. Earlier I mentioned the decorative trim, he had this ingenious product that was able to halt the rot and preserve as much of the original wood as possible because there would be no way to replicate the trim without spending a ton. This technique was also used on my kitchen bay window, which ended up saving me a fair amount of money in that area. Wayne also went out of his way to find a great deal for my porch door, I described what I wanted and he took care of the rest. Wayne also offered to come back and replace any clapboard that was questionable once the painter gets started. The other area where he excelled was the masonry. I actually contemplated doing the job myself, I'm so happy that I came to my senses and left that up to Wayne. He truly went above and beyond expectations. The brick foundation including the cement pad really needed help. Wayne fixed the grout as well as re-cemented the gap between the foundation and the pad, now when it rains really hard or when snow melts, the basement won't flood. Wayne had really good instincts and advice about tackling the different elements of our project. He approached the job as if he was the homeowner with a budget wanting to spend money wisely. I'm telling you, I can't say enough good things about Wayne and his crew at L & K Construction. I will definitely be using them again in the future.
I hired Jeff Thompson to design and build a custom beverage center, a personal work station and a built in linen cabinet in my powder room for storage. He worked with me on the design of all of these pieces and he had great creative ideas. His work is impeccable , the job site was always clean, the project was done in the amount of time he projected and for the price we agreed on. Jeff is very personable so it was a pleasure to have him in my home. I am so happy with the work he did for me. I would highly recommend his services
We had never used thumbtack before but needed our gutters done and wanted them done quickly if possible. We got some quotes and replies back. Mike responded and could do the work the next day if that worked for us. He is also insured which was important to us. We emailed and spoke on the phone to discuss the job, he came and saw our house to give us a better quote, then came and did our gutters. They look great. All clear and ready for the winter. We would recommend him to others and think we are going to speak to him about possibly doing some other exterior work on our house that needs to be done.
Just Right Construction just completed work on our home. We had a deck built. Mike and the crew were great to work with. Mike was always available to Answer any questions and address any concerns we had. Work was done on time and the quality exceptional. I would recommend Mike and Just Right Construction to anyone that needs work done on their home.
Renovate upstairs of my house into an apartment. My house is 200 years old. There were many surprises that were uncovered as the work was performed, resulting in a lot of additional work and numerous headaches. Jeff never ceased to amaze me with his ability to evaluate, adapt, and resolve problems. He and his assistant Bob, did a great job, never cutting any corners. They were completely thorough in cleaning up at the end of every day. They also performed a multitude of other projects including installing an exterior, steel spiral staircase and creating a beautiful set of steps out of old cobblestones at the entry of the house. I highly recommend Jeff.
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!
I am a designer and was looking for a finish carpenter to design and install wainscoting in my client's home. Paschal was not only professional, timely and neat, his design skills and workmanship were exceptional. My client asked him to come back and build them a custom wet bar and deck. I look forward to working with him on future projects
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.
Woodys woodworking framed my basement, installed several windows and repair some damage to cry molding in the upper floors. They offer competitive rates and were extremely professional. I would feel confident in recommending them to anyone who asked
This firm turned out to be one of the better contractors I’ve used in recent years. As far as rehire, yes, if the bid was right of course. The work was clean and I was impressed there was no nickel and diming as I’ve experienced with others. I would say the value was above average for this reason. I am satisfied with my hire. Lastly, I have an 19 year old daughter who stays home after school most of the time, and with so many men on the job, everyone was extremely professional and not creepy, I think what really worked for then is that the Project Manger set the tone for how the operations must take place and no buts or ifs. So I am very thankful for their outstanding professionalism.
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.
He arrived when he said he would, completed the job, including running to the hardware store for materials, cleaned up afterwards, and charged a very modest amount, considering he worked the entire day. An outstanding and diligent worker, I'll certainly use him again, and will recommend him to our friends.
I have used Ralph on many remodeling projects over the past few years and I have always been very happy with how the projects turned out. Ralph and his crew are very knowledgeable and do great work! If you have any type of home remodeling job, you should absolutely reach out to Ralph and the guys at Step Above, you won't be disappointed!
Hired Bilmar Construction to do a porch teardown and build a deck in its place. Workmanship was excellent, all of the work was done quickly with absolutely no problems. Extremely pleased with the completed work.
I was recommended at first by another neighbor for painting services. They were excellent and painted almost my entire house, high ceilings and all. When I didn't like the color of one main room. No issues, he said pick another color and we will be back tomorrow for an extra day. Then I learned they provided a variety of services and they became my general contractor and build an in-law apartment. The level of attention and detail was incredible. When he sad he would be there he was, when he couldn't he always called. After it was complete we had a slight problem with the air condition, which had initially been working fine for months, I called, they came immediately and corrected it. No questions asked. I call them for everything even when last year we needed someone to take a look at what was going on up on the roof with all the snow. From Plumbing, Electricians, HVAC, Carpentry, and Painting this is one stop shopping. No need to look further. We have recommended them to many people and people always ask who did the work at our home. Also no surprising costs like some other people we got quotes from. We live in an upper class neighborhood and his work is impeccable. Ask take a look at photos at some of the work they've done. I gladly and highly recommend using their services.
Jerry put a new roof on our addition and existing home. He was professional and timely. The roof looks great and haven't had any issues with it. We were so happy with his work that we had him build block stairs and part of a wall that we didn't have time to finish. Also called him to do some painting. He does quality work in a timely manner. Will definitely use him again in the future.
Umberto designed my family's home, and I fell in love with the space that he created. He designed a multi-story brick home with windows that appear to wrap around corners and stretch nearly floor to ceiling letting in as much of the Boston sunlight as appears in the sky. Umberto's talent is obvious in his ability to marry two opposite characteristics. He created an interior with high ceilings and skylights that gives one the feeling of space and air while at the same time creating little nooks in different areas of the home that are cozy places where you can read a book or listen to music. The unique design of our home also allows us to entertain many friends and family with ease but at the same time is just perfect for everyday living. I just love how our home feels.
Christian did a great job building shelves for three closets in a style that matched our existing shelves. One of the closets was beneath a staircase and a tight squeeze, but he managed to install the custom shelves without problem! We painted everything over the weekend, and the final project looks fantastic. Thank you!
Jamie and Joe were awesome to work with from start to finish during our new master suite addition. Their design and layout ideas really made the most of the space. We couldnt be happier with how it turned out.
we hired Kev and Sons from thumbtack a couple months ago to do a sunroom/home business addition for us. We are so glad we did. From the start just with the quoting and responses we really got a good feel from him. Came out a couple times to go over our plans with us and help us with all the details we needed to submit for permitting. Then we waited and waited and waiter for a permit. Kevin was very patient and encouraging throughout this whole process. More so than we were really. we were so afraid we would loose him while waiting for our permit. He let us know that when we were ready he was ready. And they were! He was here the day after our foundation back fill and constructed our dream in a week and a half. Hard working and they build a solid structure. They were hear early in am and left late in afternoon. Everyday we would come home to another awesome thing that they accomplished that day. Helped us redesign some things that they knew would not be up to code which will save us time and money in the end. Kevin gave us lots of great advise since we hired them to do the weather proof shell only for us. We had to add some projects to his list that we meant to do ourselves but just could not get it done to coordinate with the electrician and plumber. We cannot say enough good things about these guys. We felt very trusting towards them doing what we wanted. Kevin has a lot of integrity and does a phenomenal job! Would not even go to thumbtack for our next project. I don't need to because I have Kevin on speed dial. Scott Portland ME
