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!
We hired John to fix and finish the interior wooden stairs, bannister, baulsters and landing of our home. Our house is over 100 years old, and we're pretty sure they're original, so they were in rough shape. He did an amazing job! He listened to us when we said we wanted to keep as much of it original as possible, and kept us updated throughout the project when unexpected issues came up so that we could be part of the decision making process. The stairs no longer creek or wobble. I feel like he left the aged original beauty of the wood, but made it alot more safe to have in our home. The work was finished on time and in budget, even through a snow storm. We'd be happy to use him again.
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.
Ryan installed interior trim around 5 new skylights in a very timely and affordable manner, painted them and also created an nice plaque out of trim to house our new wireless skylight remote control. He and his helper Rick were professional and cleaned up very well. I would highly recommend Ryan to others.
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.
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!
We were so happy to find Edson and very thankful for his great work. We had recently moved into a new home and he helped up with updating a few bathrooms. He is very smart, very honest, and just a really nice person to work with that you can trust. We are very happy with the results and would highly recommend him.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
After years of painting & dealing with rotting trim, we decided to invest in having the trim replaced with siding. While not a big job like adding a room or building a deck, it was a tedious task as we had a lot of trim to replace on our 2 story colonial. Jesse was very helpful & professional with his suggestions and offered a reasonable price for the job. We were very pleased with the work and felt that they treated our house as if they were working on their own. They brought to our attention concerns in areas of the job that needed replacement (a door jamb that was completely rotted out) so we felt like they had our best interest in doing a great job and not just "finishing the work" We'd highly recommend this company.
I had a flood in a second floor kitchen of a two family home. The tenant lives on the 1st floor and suffered a ceiling collapse and water damage to the kitchen floor. Yikes!! Wait there's more! This could and should've been a not so challenging repair until my town building inspector showed up for lack of permits on the behalf of the demo company. Long story short my 100 + yr old home now had to be upgraded before being re-inspected. I hired John as my General Contractor and in addition to providing a great plumber and plasterers he himself is a carpentry magician and made magic out of bad and unforseen challenges like old knob and tubing and corrective framing and other issues. It was due to his vast wisdom and experience that I was able to get through this nightmare without spending a kings ransom and still retain quality and inspection satisfactory work. He's seen alot so he knew how to problem solve and work miracles.
Evan and his team not only came to do the job in 3 days notice but arrived and got an unusual job done in less then a day. They were excellent about protecting the rest of the house from dust and did a great clean up job. Evan is very professional, knowledgeable and very easy to work with. I would definitely use Build it up Builders again and recommend them to anyone. A+++ job! Thank you so much!
My girlfriend an I recently purchased our first home. The deck needed repairing so we contacted Northwind Builders Corp to do the job. Owner, Andrew Balboni is young and ambitious. He got our deck remodel done quickly and neatly. My girlfriend is a bit of a neatfreak even with outside materials, so I am pleased to say that Northwind Builders crew is ontop of cleaning after each day of being on the job. If in the future my girlfriend and I need work done to our house I know who to contact. THANKS NBC!!!
