Excellent.
even talked me out of spending too much money on certain items and offered less expensive solutions. His crew cleaned up every day, including dusting and sweeping.
Clean, professional, skilled, and the most honest contractor I have ever met.

's work was of the highest quality, professionalism and timeliness of any renovation job I have ever heard of! While it was our family's first renovation job, I can only imagine that few home renovations as extensive as ours stick to the timeline with as much diligence as
. But that was only one of the positives of working with
Judge and his team.
kept a constant eye on our expenses! As a young family we were deeply concerned with the inevitable "overages" that everyone associates with contractors- and while we did go over the original estimated budget, it was only with projects related to the age of our home (inevitable OLD electrical was discovered that needed updating, our uncovered floor need major leveling) but not with the original project scope.
kept us up to date with all happenings during the project, so we never felt surprised by any of the obstacles or costs associated.
and his team were also conscientious of our home (and our three indoor cats who had to live through the day to day!).
&
carefully blocked off all access points to the renovation to keep dust and demolition dirt out of their living area, and even corralled our cats on their one escape attempt! Every evening I would return to see the front hallway thoroughly swept, the tools more or less cornered in their "place" and the doors locked and alarm set. I never felt like our home was left in disarray even in the most destructive of phases (like tearing down the walls!).
I also appreciated the professionalism of the sub contractors. The people that work with
are clearly experts in their field, and reflect his highest standards. Everything from the "unseen" work, to the final installed cabinets were of highest quality, and passed inspection with no problem.
From the very beginning,
Judge was there to answer any of our questions, help us navigate through our first home renovation project, and maintained the highest respect for our space and our family's needs. In short we will be working with
on any future projects we undertake, and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a superb renovation experience with the finest quality end product.

This was a nightmare! I would NEVER recommend
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
.
The crew was sloppy: did not clean up after themselves inside and outside. I am still finding wads of insulation strewn over my property.
The crew was never punctual. They arrived usually @ 45 minutes after the appointment times and were always in a big rush to leave, letting me know that they had bigger jobs to do elsewhere.
I caught one installer walking out of my house with one of our tools. It was returned when I said something. Then, the next day after they left, I found the same tool to be missing. My husband has a strange habit of labeling his tools with a label maker so it is hard to understand how this could be a mistake. It was returned 2 weeks later.
The crew managed to break 3 handles on 3 new windows, which had to be ordered and re-installed. The interior window frames were scratched up by the installers.
The 3 pane casement window was too big for the opening but the crew managed to squeeze it in, bending the entire frame so the windows could not be opened without real elbow grease. It was eventually replaced 5 months later (by another company)!

is a true professional. From the first appointment to scope out the work and provide a quote to the last day, he and his team were on time. Mess was kept to a minimum, the crew cleaned up before leaving each day. Excellent and honest communications throughout the experience.

The job went very well,from the start meeting with
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
mapping out the details right through the finish product. They were on time , any questions or concerns as project went along they were very responsive and took care of everything . I didnt have to worry about anything they took care of it all. If there was something i didnt like they did not argue they just changed it or gave me suggestions. I also felt very comfortable leaving them in my house working while I was not home which is a great feeling.I recommend

Angie's new article about contractor and scamming prompted me to write.
I was in a bit of a bind after i had to fire a contractor recommended by my designer. So, she recommended
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
because he was the only one available at that time. The contractor i fired had delayed my project significantly, so i had to hire
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
right away..
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
did an impressive job of removing and clearing the old kitchen and bathroom. i was impressed. It was so fast and tidy. They continued to do a good job and ask for a significant down payment and i paid them. While still doing well, he asked for another big down payment soon after and foolishly i gave it to him thinking that should make him work faster. In the mean time i had to rent temporary living quarter, which is expensive. That is then he slowed down. Work around 5-6 hours a day. Always leaving around around one in the afternoon. Some days does not even show up. There were some delays not his fault but the desinger fault, so it dragged. He could have gone on and do work that has nothing to do with the part that was being delayed. After all this
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was over, he only has minor last cabinetry to make and it took so long. i called and called and he started telling me I am not his only client. He was always in his shop working at other projects. When he took my money, i never tell him "i cant pay you right now because i have other bills to pay". He drag this work for an extra 4weeks. Never keep the date line he promised, i had to keep changing my living situation because he was not able to keep his words.
While i live on rentals that cost a fortune and finally i had live with my sisters for over a month to cut cost, i got very sick with all the moving and adjustment and stress only to find out the contractor is not on the job site. i about freaked out. I knew i had been scammed.
i finally had to hire my designer to watch after
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and it was done in three days time. To think i had to keep calling for 3 weeks to ask him if he was done. He was not working in the Apartment, but working on other projects with my money in his pocket.
Now come the part with the window, He doubled the price for his labor, telling me the wood work of my window was rotten to the core. He said he had to do extra work, hire an extra man who is not even a window fitter. He doubled his price for labor and he padded the window cost too. He padded eveyr thing not just 20% which usually is what contractor do, but some area, he doubled the price. He never took pictures of the "rotten window woodwork." to prove the need to charge extra.
So, after a week, he and his wife went to the Caribean for holiday on January. No wonder he had ot hire extra worker because his vacation ticket has already been paid for and he wanted to get out of the job.
One of the glass window he installed, the glass had cracked. i believe it is the way he fitted the window. He is not a window and door contractor and this type of work needs precision. Lets see how long before more cracked windows.
When i first told him the window cracked, he told me he
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
not believe it, he has to see it to believe. He asked me if i did something to the window.
i read the article in Angie list. i have commited all the mistakes and every warning she gave hiring a contractor. It is me who is hte fool and believe my contractor who said he used to be a minister, thinking he will be more honest. It is my fault because i had no one to help in this project and keep watch over these workers. These people took advantage of me and has no
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
or honesty. And stupid me trusted them. Trust.
Near the end, I told him that i will not pay him anymore until work is done. He went beserk and screamed and threatened to not get my renovation inspected. I was sick at that time and was also scammed by an apartment rental agency out of $2500 and i had to live with relatives and then turned around and found out this man is not even in the apartment working. So everyone go around freaking out. But who is at fault?
The bathroom has to be repainted because he only put one coat and tried to make me pay a painter to repaint over it when my designer complained. I refused, The white grout in the white marble floor and shower floor was filthy because he did not protect the floor and he expect me to have a new bathroom with filthy floor and even complained that i just nitpick. Where is the standard, pride of this man. of his work, or what a beautiful bathroom should be new and clean for someone who paid a lot for it.
It is over and call me the fool. i agree i am.

arrived on time and did an excellent job. He was meticulous, and took pride in his work. There were no negative surprises, no headaches, only honest, great workmanship. I have dealt with numerous contractors before, and

In an old house things are not always level or straight-forward. They made sure that the windows were properly reinforced (this is a 100 year old house and building codes were definitely different then), insulated around the frames, and then trimmed so that they blend in perfectly with the existing window frames. They had to do some extra work to account for some of the original windows in being slightly crooked, the result looks great. We finally don't have drafts blowing through our windows!

does a thorough job and finds the solution to your problem. He doesn't do slapdash "fixes". Our porch (from previous job) had some previously re-work by someone else, but it still didn't stop a leak that went from the 3rd to 2nd floor.
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
really fixed that. His men are meticulous and hard-working, they do excellent quality work.
I will definitely be calling him again when spring comes to do some more work for us.

did an amazing job with our renovation. We will definitely hire him again for future renovation projects.
We had a design for our project and we received several estimates from different providers. From the outset,
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was timely in his responses, punctual and thoughtful about the project. His estimate came in somewhere in the middle of the price ranges, but he provided more work. Most importantly, he took his time and inspected our property thoroughly. He spent about 5 hours with us before we had paid him anything and he went over each piece of the project. We looked at all of the contingencies for different aspects of the work. This allowed him to stay right on his estimate! This was hugely important for us, as the project was near the top of our budget.
Once the work commenced,
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
worked extremely hard. He arrived around 7:00 a.m. each morning and worked as late as 6:00 on some days. He also worked most Saturdays. He gave us a detailed calendar at two separate times during the project. This was helpful for us to plan around. His sub-contractors were very responsive to him and everything moved along according to schedule (there were some delays with no-show inspectors, but that was as frustrating to
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
as it was to us) If something ever deviated from the plan, he called to discuss it with us before he moved ahead. He took immense pride in the detail work and the kitchen and bath look amazing. We couldn't be happier with the results.
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
worked cleanly throughout the project. This was hugely important to us because we have a young child. He used a negative air machine and sealed everything thoroughly. On occasion, there was some dust throughout the house, but this is probably unavoidable with this kind of work. After the project, we had our vents professionally cleaned. When I informed the cleaners that we just had a kitchen and bath remodel, they were surprised. They remarked that when they come in after renovations, things are usually much dirtier, so our contractor must have been a meticulous cleaner.
The only con I can think of is minor. I would say
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was hesitant to give design advice, so it is good to know what you want and he will deliver it. This is probably a pro for people that know exactly what they want with every decision, but there are a ton to make in a project like this.
We already have a few things in mind that we can't wait to bring
Boston Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
back to help us with!
