Jonathan and Stephen have been absolutely fabulous!!! They took the time to unblock all the gutters, took several photos of before and after the job, and proceeded to all the necessary repairs! they took care of all the plants lying beneath their ladders and after the job cleaned around the perimeter of the house. A very throrough and careful service. I will certainly call this company back for regular gutter cleaning and general maintenance.

I would highly recommend hiring Ralph and Mador Electric for any electrical project you may need done. Ralph came and did an outside lighting project me and from start to finish "owned" the project and made me feel comfortable and assured that it was going to be quality workmanship done on the timeline desired. He takes responsibility for his work and is proud of the quality of his jobs compared to other contractors. He will also come up with economical and efficient ways to best utilize the existing structure you have to best suit the needs of your desired project. This is what I want from the contractors I hire. You will not be disappointed. - Cranston, RI

Adelson and his men did great work as part of our paint touch up for our home sale. They were professional, did quality work, finished on time and overall made our home look appealing to potential buyers. I would highly recommend them all all folks looking for general contractors

I had a chimney cricket redone and some general repairs to my roof. Weathertite responded promptly, came out the next day and did the work as agreed. James and his sons were a pleasure to work with. The work done carries a 10 year warranty and I am happy that they stand behind their work.

Obed answers the phone (a minor miracle in itself, compared to most of the people we called), offered a decent price, came when he said he would (another miracle) and did the job he had agreed to do. None of this should sound extraordinary -- unless of course you live here on planet earth and have any previous experience with contractors.

Amazing! It was a pleasure working with Matt as he was the only contractor who came through the door with enough foresight to make recommendations for my deck project and knew exactly which direction to go. Matt was timely, organized and delivered everything he said he would complete. He was great to work with and was both flexible, professional and reliable. I would absolutely have Matt work on my next home project without hesitation! The work he did on my deck surpassed my expectations and would love to be able to recommend him to my friends. Thank you!!!

Cezar and his crew were amazing! I've worked with several contractors (including another tile guy) in the past few months and he was the most pleasant to deal with. We had him re-tile a bathroom floor in a rental we own. It turned out perfect. You could tell he cared about the job they did. In fact, they did such a good job at such a reasonable price, we had them do another bathroom while they were there. (His price was better than some of the others presented on Thumbtack and his reviews were better.) Also, they arrived exactly at the promised time and finished when they said they would. These are both rarities in my experience! I will definitely hire him again if I need any other tile work or handyman work in the future!

I needed somebody to build and install a custom floor-to-ceiling sliding door to split my room when I want it. Not too many contractors will take a job like this requiring out-of-the-box thinking, but Joe did. He came up with a solution that saved me hundreds on the material cost and submitted a quote that I could not refuse. And I’m glad I’ve hired him. That was my best contractor experience ever (and I worked with dozens of contractors on different projects before). Joe and Frank worked as a perfect team complementing each other and coming up with the best course of actions. Joe would reply to any text message almost immediately, answering all the questions I had for him. The project was done as promised, on time and on budged. Thank you, Joe and Frank. I would recommend Speranza & Son to anyone who needs a job done professionally, efficiently, and with minimal headache.

Sam was a pleasure to work with. The thing I appreciated the most was the great communication. He was quick to respond to texts and showed up when he said he would - which is saying a lot actually! The work turned out great and I look forward to working with Sam again in the future. We already have plans for him to come back in the spring to repair our chimney. As a former pro, I have a hard time rating folks to 5 stars unless I am completely blown away. Unfortunately, I see all the compromises that I know contractors must make on every project. All small things - probably not things most folks would even see - and nothing I felt obligated to ask Sam to fix before paying for the project. I have and will continue to refer people in need of masonry work to Sam's Masonry.

Eduardo was very responsive from the beginning. I posted my job on Thumbtack just to get an idea what my costs would be. I hadn't even decided if I would build it yet. Several vendors responded but in addition to responding, Eduardo wanted to come over, see the place, and make sure he was helping me through the initial decision making.. This was very helpful to me and helped me sort through the various quotes I got. Any questions I had he responded. And just talking too him, he exuded an air of confidence that inspired trust. I was not disappointed.. After successful HOA approval, city design review and permit approval (no easy feat.. took over a month for city to schedule us in), Eduardo showed up with his carpenter, Claudio, who would be the expert carpenter he found to execute. Claudio was amazing. He immediately attacked the job with a professionalism and passion I have never seen in construction. The pergola is in Ipe wood.. The hardest wood there is. Claudio loves to work with wood and although Ipe can be difficult to work with he is able to handle it with no problems. Eduardo was in communication every step of the way. In fact I went on vacation and got weekly updates with pictures. During the process Claudio had many ideas how to make it better than the original. Eduardo supported this process and allowed Claudio to do his very best. The end result speaks for itself. I've had several friends come over and admire their work and some of them will most likely hire Eduardo for their next project. Finally, once final inspection was done, Eduardo explained to me that due to his desire to do the job right, he didn't make as much as he anticipated but he wanted to be clear that even so he stood by his original estimate. This is a fantastic general contractor to work with in my opinion. Rarely is construction delivered better than you anticipate.

Chris was excellent to work with -- he was honest, friendly, and able to get the work we needed done efficiently and quickly. We had to have him coordinate work with some other contractors working in our commercial space and he did so easily. I would highly recommend Chris for any electrical work needed!

We own a 1920's colonial. When we purchased the house the walls were original, in very bad condition and had not been painted in many years. Over the past 10+ years Troy has restored, repaired and painted the walls and woodwork in every room in the house. He takes pride in his workmanship and attention to detail. He's methodically patched holes, cracks & imperfections in our old walls. The time spent here was far more than the actual painting. His at times slightly higher estimates have always accurately reflected the hours spent prepping the surfaces. Last summer (2016) Troy acted as general contractor when we did a major remodel of our very large & in bad shape 4 season sun porch. Again, we were thrilled with the end result. He was available and responsive when an inevitable (but minor) miscommunication arose between myself and the electrician. He worked quickly to remedy the situation. The room was transformed to a comfortable space that my family enjoys everyday

I found the guys from Contracting done right to be extremely professional. I had what should have been a simple job but was butchered by a previous contractor. CDR arrived on time, dismantled the previous install ( I had bespoke media center installed in dead space ). The guys came up with recessed shelving system and hidden wire ( all cables were run behind the tv through a wall cavity ) arrangement which has given my lounge a clean fresh look. CDR were good value for money, not the cheapest but definitely worth it. All debris and trash was removed and my lounge was left tidy and respectable upon completion. The workmen were punctual , polite and professional I will definitely use Contracting Done Right for any future projects.

JP came to look at one project for us and ended up taking care of two! We had a few different contractors come through, but JP was the most professional and had the best vision for completing what we were trying to accomplish. Everything went perfectly according to plan and we couldn't be happier with the finished result. We discussed costs up front and everything came in on budget. Very responsive to any questions or concerns that came up and had perfect suggestions for when we didn't know which direction to go in. Very happy with everything and won't hesitate to call for any future projects!

I have a Dental Office that needed/s lots of renovations done to and my practice is expanding so I needed someone right away to jump on this. I interviewed many contractors prior to hiring a construction company. These guys know what they are talking about and attacked this project right away. I am thankful for people like these to exist. Sincerely, Kevin.

As one does, or should rather, I met with several contractors before meeting Paul; and none of them quite matched Paul’s personality and easy-goingness. Paul and his crew, particularly Joe, worked diligently, respectfully, and smartly on our front deck. We used high-end products, in which Paul has much knowledge with, as well as having the courtesy to talk us through each step of the build. Supreme Home Improvement came in under budget, but by no means whatsoever does that equate to the work being inferior, not at all, as Paul completely and utterly transformed our pitiful outdoor deck to an oasis in our home, and all done with proficiency and astuteness. When conversing with Paul, his down-to-earth and honest character will shine through each and every time. For me, that was a true bonus. To add, I would most certainly hire Paul and his team again. Thank-you!
