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.

After speaking with a few local companies I decided to go with East Coast Painting & Remodeling. The owner has responded quickly to any questions that I've had, helped me chose colors and gave me a fair price for painting my new house. Its nice to have true professionals helping me and it lessens the stress of moving knowing that I'm in good hands. I'm excited to see the end result and move in! I would defintely recommend this company & will continue to use them for future work.

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!!!

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.

Matt and his crew did a fantastic job! Highly recommended and would use them again in a heartbeat. They were on time, cleaned up and did high quality work. Lots of painting, patching, caulking, general repair and more. Excited to have them work a renovation for us!

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!

Bob is currently working on our deck and doing an outstanding job. He's meticulous when it comes to everything. "Measure twice, cut once" is his motto and when you are looking for a contractor this is highly important. I don't have pictures of the end result but I will post when he is done.

I highly recommend Richardson Carpentry for Door Installation and other jobs. Russell did an excellent job with entry door and Storm door installation in my condo. He arrived on time and was very professional. He cleaned up after the job which other contractor lacks sometimes.

I was in need of a knowledgeable contractor (carpenter) that could deal with some siding and roof line issues that were causing siding to rot and corner boards to rot. I have had some bad experiences in the past with contractors so I always go into this process with worries whether I have made a good choice? Gilbert having the wealth of experience that he does worked my small job into his busy schedule and took care of my issues and treated my house as though he was going to live there. He is attentive, very professional with an eye for detail and listens to the concerns the home owner has and explains where he believes the repair should go to make it right. He was genuinely a very easy person to talk to and he took your suggestions seriously. I am very satisfied with the work he has done for me and will definitely be using him on my next projects. You would be hard pressed to find someone as experienced, professional, and concerned that what he is doing will be right. Gilbert is the real deal! Thanks Gilbert look forward to working with you on our next projects.

My project involved a less than straight forward improvement to an old 1900s section of my home. Bruce signed up for the task with enthusiasm and maintain that same enthusiasm til it was complete.. We expanded the scope of work and made several changes and Bruce was very supportive and offered many design and structural suggestions. Bruce worked well with other sub-contractors and the officials of the town of Exeter. He is a great guy and I can certainly recommend him to others.

Very good experience with Northeast Construction. Finally some one who was able to replicate the trim I needed done! A few other contractors tried but couldn't replicate some trim I needed for my fireplace. Brandon assured me they could do it and even told me if they couldn't do it to my satisfaction I would not have to pay. Very professional and very good work.

Jim did an amazing job on the tiles in the kitchen. The experience working with Jim is what it should be when working with a contractor. He started and ended the job on schedule even though there were issues with the existing concrete sub floor. I am extremely happy with the work.

Jim responded immediately on Thumbtack. When I contacted him he returned my call the same day. He came to the job site when he said he would. By his demeanor I could tell that he was serious about the job. He took measurements and discussed the project. Within a short time Jim gave me a quote which I found reasonable for what needed to be done. Jim and his crew worked steadily and professionally until the job was completed. He made suggestions which were smart and appropriate and never balked when I suggested changes. When the project was finished I could not have been more satisfied. It is not enough to say that Jim's work was outstanding. It is superb. He is a competent and honest contractor.

Mike was punctual and responsive from the get go! His estimate was more comprehensive then any I've had from other contractors. He took the time to help me with design and budget options. Even when there were changes he was always accommodating and enthusiastic to get the job done right. I would hire Mike for all my home improvements in the future. Brad C.

My wife & I interviewed 14 general contractors for our complete home remodel project (3 new & expanded baths, new vaulted ceiling & tiled shower in master bath, new tray ceiling & barn door closet in master bed, new screened-in porch, new front porch & front door, new & expanded wall of colonial windows in living room, finished garage, siding repair). This is a big project & we wanted to make sure that we hired a GC that (1) is skilled, experienced & has a track record of high-quality work, (2) is trustworthy, ethical, communicates well, easy to work with, and, (3) charges a fair rate for his work. Ralph is a rare find and checks all of these boxes. You should always speak with as many contractors as possible in order to find the best match for your project, and, Ralph should absolutely be on that list. We are very impressed and very happy with Ralph, and, we HIGHLY recommend that you discuss your project with him before making a final decision. He's a hard-working, highly-skilled GC that does the right thing by his customers at a fair price.

They are a life saver! When we needed a licensed contractor to look at a potential structure issue on a condo we had placed an offer on they were able to come that same night and eliminate my fears! He gave me the worst case scenario which helped me to evaluate. The realtor was so impressed she asked for his business card as well! We plan to use this company to install tile! Thank you again!

I don't usually write reviews, but I honestly felt that I needed to get the word out about D.C. Painting. This company was such a great find. They went above and beyond literally all of my expectations. I love my house, it is my pride and joy, so I am very, very picky about what contractors I use. I am so impressed with the impeccable quality and professionalism of this company. From the very first meeting through the entire process, and all the way to the end product, it was so easy and just a pleasure to work with them. It's amazing what a great paint job can do for your home! These guys are really good at what they do, they are punctual, neat and to be honest, really reasonably priced. I plan to use them for any of my other painting needs. I highly recommend them! You won't be disappointed. :)
