and his crew from

did a great job remodeling our bathroom in our condo. We had a very tight budget and were backed into this job because a bathroom in the condo above ours destroyed a good portion of ours.

came recommended to me and I had him come give me a quote along with another GC.

's was a bit more competitive and I also liked the prior work of his that I went to look at.
Right from the beginning,
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was incredibly responsive and very helpful. We decided that we would purchase the tile, toilet, vanity etc since there's a huge range for all of that. So that added an extra $500, but we knew that going into the project. Since this is our only bathroom, we had to stay elsewhere during the work. Because of that,
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was very careful to finish the project in just 5 days so we could get back into our place.
The bathroom looks amazing. We even had an issue where one tile intersection must not have dried completely.

came back a few days later (after having already been paid) and made it right assuring us to let him know if any other issues come up.
Very good work, great price, and great job at keeping on schedule.

Recently purchased the top floor unit on a condoized 3 family in Southie. The builder wanted to build a roof deck but did not get permits in time for sale. Originally wanted
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
spiral staircase on back deck going up to roof, but was denied at ISD. Resubmitted with stairs going up back staircase to roof with a roof hatch, was approved.
Had about 10 contractors come out, most not interested in the job. Ended up with 3 usable bids and chose Abacus.

Little is very friendly and will explain everything in detail, if you ask.
Built the roof-deck such that its not sitting on the roof, but floating off the roof and resting on metal railings that attach at 4 distinct points. Pointed out roof work that needed to be done due to sloppy installation of siding on house. Negotiated a price directly with his roofer and paid him separately.
Now that deck is done, inspected and

's been paid, he is continuing to help me with minor items relating to the deck.

These guys were fantastic. I have to say that overall, they made us feel like they were working on their own house. They took so much care in all aspects of the project and were extremely precise with their workmanship. They were very prompt when I initially contacted them for the estimate. They came in and gave me a very honest assessment of the work, including providing general tips and suggestions that were even out of the scope of the project. The quotation was very detailed and impressive, and the pricing was honest and spot on.

mentioned initially that he prides the work on the old school way of doing things, and that is very, very true. They were extremely flexible when we changed a few things during the project, and
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
worked tirelessly to insure that it was completed on time. We did quite a bit of marble floor tiling and ceramic tile work - when people see the finished product they always comment on how meticulous the workmanship was. You could not see a hint of a seam in any of the drywall work either - they are very good. Each day when they left, you could not even tell that they had been there, the outside areas were so clean. I could not recommend these guys more. They are very much part of a tradition where honesty and workmanship are valued above money.

This is an A+ company from start to finish. Absolutely trust-worthy, fantastic work, completely knowledgeable about the latest materials and building processes. They are on-time, fastidious, respectful and non-intrusive. The work is done in the timeframe estimated, and they are incredibly responsive whenever you have a question. And patient, throughout all the changes that invariably get made during a building process.

is a gem of a contracting company, and I have used them for tons of projects, including this one. They have replaced the roof on my house, built custom doors, found incredible subcontractors for overhauling our electric system and installing a house-wide A/C.

Mr.
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was invested a great deal of time up front in the design and research of the solution. Ultimately, a very clever system of 8 ft tall pocket doors create a gracious division of space with 12 foot ceiling heights. Everyday of the construction, the AJC crew cleaned up down to swiffering the floors. The construction period lasted exactly as forecast and the finish was spectacular. We are very very particular about home construction and decor and wow.

From the first visit until the final walk-through,
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and his crew were terrific. They came every day until the job was done, did little extras like check the drains on the roof, and left the basement drier -- and cleaner -- than it was when they arrived. It's never been this clean. They even checked up on some work they'd done here previously and made some touch-ups on it.

They were also great at communication. Several times, the guys on the crew pointed out some little things that might need work in the future by other tradesmen, things we should keep our eyes on (electrical, etc.) And no one answers emails or text messages faster than

(owner) was a true professional. Our condo association felt very comfortable contacting
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
based on his company's description that he provided and the fact that he was fully insured.

took the time to speak to me at 8PM on a Wed night when I called and made arrangements to come the next day at 6PM to see the scope of work since he understood our urgency.
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
realized that he and his team could take care of our gutter that night and without hesitation asked if he could get up on our roof. The price for his services was very fair as well. We were impressed with

, plan to use them again soon and would highly recommend them!

Mr.
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was fired from the job for the following reasons: - showed up 2 - 3 hours late consistently for the job - promised the job to be finished in two days, three days at the most. Work was not even close to completion by the end of day 5. - window installed in a crooked manner - tub was placed in a crooked manner, affecting the pitch of the tub causing improper drainage - faucet for tub and shower starts at scalding hot when first turned on and then becomes cooler as you further turn the faucet - cannot use cold water through the faucet because the cold water was not connected - extensive damage by himself and his crew to the original hardwood floor that have resulted in the need for thousands of dollars of repair - the small amount of tile that was placed was placed not in the design designated by me - damage to materials provided by me rendering them unusable (a whole box of tile was covered in grout and stuck together) - workers stayed for hours at a time with no supervision standing around doing nothing

I learned of
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
from another well-thought-of woodworker.
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is an all-around top quality guy. Great ethics, great personal skills, great woodworking and general contracting skills.
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is my go-to guy when anything goes wrong, or needs work, at my place. If
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
says he doesn't feel comfortable doing a particular type of job, he says so, and is willing to help me find someone else to help (for example, he told me he didn't feel comfortable doing roofing). If he says he can do a job, he is able to schedule a time in the future to do the job and I can trust him to be there when that time comes, and finish the job in the allotted time. Plus, I feel safe leaving him & his co-workers around with my wife and 8 year old daughter.

and his team renovated an old building in the South End. We bought one of the nine units from him this spring. We love our unit and they did a great job with it for the most part. However, we (and many of the other owners in our building) have been very frustrated with the corners

has taken for repairs and the turn around time for getting things done. Most recently, we discovered a leak in our walls (a result of
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's team during building) and our wood floors had to be replaced and refinished. After explicitly asking
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to make sure to talk with the floor people he hired to make sure that they covered and blocked off our apartment to protect it from dust as well as make sure they put the correct finish down, neither of these things were taken care of. Our apartment is in disarray now and filthy. Not to mention we have to go through it all over again because the wrong finish was put down.
Boston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
hired the same sub-contractor that had put the wrong finish on our floors just before we bought our unit. We shouldn't have let him handle this and should have hired our own floor people but we made the mistake of trusting him. If you buy one of his homes just know that he does not live up to many of his promises and is very frustrating to work with.
