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
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.
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.
I have rebuilt every room in my house and have used a number of contractors along the way. Charlie was head and shoulders above anyone else. He built a new deck and an 20x14 sunroom that everyone who visits the house absolutely loves. The quality of workmanship was over the top great and the cost was very very reasonable. He is also the most honest contractor I have ever worked with. Even my local building inspector was very complimentary of the quality and made those comments both times he reviewed the work. I can't give Charlie a high enough recommendation. He will exceed your expectations!
Kitchen Renovation- Alex did a wonderful job helping to custom mount my new kitchen cabinets. He also helped to modify a few cabinets we needed help with.He was very professional and pleasant to work with. I would definitely recommend Alex to anyone with carpentry needs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
My husband and I had just built our new home and we were looking for a painting company to take care of the interior. We had heard about Brothers of the Brush through a friend of ours who is a contractor and decided to give them a call. Not only were they very friendly and professional they definitely exceeded our expectations. A close friend of ours is in the process of building his new home and we have already recommended Brothers of the Brush.
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.
I contacted Wayne to shovel about 4 feet of snow off the roof of our home. He did an excellent job, arriving on time (8 am) and completing the job in five hours. We have solar hot water units on our roof that were completely buried and he and his assistant located them and completely and carefully cleared away all of the snow. He also shoveled out our generator in the back yard which had been buried under snow from the the roof. I was impressed by how efficient and thorough he was. I'm going to recommend him to friends and family and I'll certainly call him again for snow removal. Barry R.
Had a deck custom built and I am thrilled with the look and workmanship
