Sample Reviews


We are VERY happy with our basement. From start to finish, it took approximately six weeks to complete, but there were a couple of times when they had to work around our schedule if we were out of town. All of the teams were professional, listened to our questions and gave us helpful answers, and were willing to accommodate special requests such as setting up separate circuits for some specific electrical needs or moving around plumbing drains to change the layout of the bathroom.
, our project manager, was easy to reach if something came up and very responsive. He also helped us stay on top of the arrival times of all of the different teams so that we knew who was coming when to do what.
We worked with a separate provider for the flooring (which is not unusual for Distinctive Designs' clients) and will review them separately, but they were also excellent (
Floor Covering).
I would absolutely work with Distinctive Designs again (and hope to in the future when we're ready for another big project!) and highly recommend them.
- Elizabeth R.

was very professional, timely, and thorough in delivering more than promised! The results also reflected the attention to quality by
, the remodeling crew foreman, and his brother,
! During the project, after completing the work scheduled for the day and traveling halfway home it began to rain, prompting
to return to our home during rush hour to be more than sure that any potentially exposed areas were adequately protected. This remodeling company certainly takes pride in its work and service to its customers! We look forward to working with them again on the next project.

He wrote an estimate that was agreed upon by my newly widowed mother. He asked for half down. Before job was done, he rewrote his 'proposal' and asked for more money.
He came and went whenever he wanted (sometimes 9:30 sometimes 10:30) only worked about 2 hours a day. He didn't show up at all one morning and when my mother called him he said he was at a doctor appointment and whould be there later. Then 2 hours later he called and cancelled saying 'the day is already wasted' for him. No apology! My mom's day was wasted waiting for him.
Instead of replacing sheetrock to repair a crack in the wall, he just put a load of 'texture' and paint over it and it bulges out compared to the rest of the wall.
In other places the seams between sheetrock pieces are visible.
He got 'texture' on the brick and was going to leave it until it was pointed out and he was told to clean it. He used our ladder without permission and got paint and 'texture' all over it. He cleaned his equipment in yard and left piles of texture and paint on the lawn and killed some of the grass.
He reused pieces of old lumber to rebuild the door jam - pieced together and filled in gaps with putty-looking stuff. The door does not fit into the door jam properly - you can see light when the door is shut - a storm door! When my mom pointed out the cracks he told her she was being "...too nitpicky, and don't worry about it!" He also yelled my sister when she asked him a question - telling her she need to "...wait until I'm done and then you can complain! I've been doing this for 30 years and I know what I'm doing!
The finished job is sloppy and pieced together, not quality at all!

I took quite awhile to get around to writing this review. Part of the reason is that I know you need to live with the work for awhile in order to gauge how truly satisfied you are with the work performed. Another part of the reason is that
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the first g.c. I had ever worked with, and I knew I'd be working with a bunch of additional contractors as part of the
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
board, so I wanted to compare my experience with
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to my subsequent experience with other contractors.
I can say with absolute confidence that
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
is a great general contractor to work with and we would choose him again. We are thrilled with the way our kitchen turned out and with the quality of workmanship, and with the way he addressed any lingering issues as they came up (and if you haven't done this before-- it doesn't matter who you hire, little issues will come up. It's inevitable.)
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's crews were extremely polite, efficient, and professional. They did their very best not to inconvenience us (not an easy task when you're pulling up horrible tiles and generating that kind of dust.) The quality of their workmanship was second to none; our tile floors were laid just about perfectly, thank goodness.
There was one exception, hence the B for punctuality:
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
's (now very former) granite counter-top crew. Those guys were a big problem, and they upset me (at the time) and
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to no end with their shenanigans. However, this is the benefit of perspective-- at the time, I was a little p***** off about it. Upon reflection, I am more impressed with how
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
committed to handling them and they problems they created, including
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
their butts, and the concern
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
expressed over trying to fix the challenge they created. I've seen a lot of other contractors and I know that problems are inevitable. His response to the problem was a demonstration that he is really the top-notch, upstanding professional you want to be working with.
We're now very happy with our kitchen and extremely glad we chose
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
as our contractor. In the even we need/can afford more work in the future, he'll be our first call.
- Andrew B.

We initially got three bids for this project. We decided to hire Bill from
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Company. Bill was more detailed and complete in reviewing our project. He looked at everything inside and outside of the house and made several suggestions and comments before submitting his bid to us. We felt good about this because the other two bidders were not as thorough. Since this was our first time hiring a general contractor we appreciated receiving his advice. We really have no major complaints about the project. Bill did everything possible to accomplish our project in a timely manner. He was always on time or called when he knew he would be late. We are very happy with the quality of the work that was done and the room addition looks beautiful!
If we needed to hire a general contractor in the future for another large project, we would certainly hire Bill again. He did a great job and always kept us informed of the progress.
- Gary P.

We are very pleased with the work. The project was begun and completed on time. Our input was encouraged. The communication between the builder and us was excellent. The subcontractors were skilled and professional.

I've learned my lesson the hard way and so now typically do business only with angies list contractors. i made an exception with this job because
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was so highly recommended by another angies list contractor that I've done a lot of business with in the past. The other contractor worked at the same house with
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, different job but same house. he told me that
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the very best at what he does and darn if he didnt turn out to be right.

came to my home to provide an estimate for laying tile in the kitchen, utility room and master bathroom, as well as tiling the shower and tub surround. it was clear from the get-go that he had both the knowledge and expertise that i was looking for - he asked me questions about things that i hadnt even thought of and also made suggestions for options that i didnt know existed. he had pictures of prior jobs on his smart phone and so was able to show me pics of the various options as well as the the type of work that he does. the pictures sold me on his knowledge and experience - my (previous) contractor's no hold barred recommendation gave me the confidence to hire an otherwise unknown individual.

bent over backwards to accommodate my schedule and it cannot go unsaid that i have never, ever had a more polite and courteous crew performing work at my home. They took extraordinary steps to protect carpet as well as appliances when moving them out of the kitchen and utility room, as well as to protect walls and wood work. They were always punctual, took only a short lunch break each day, and worked hard and steadily up until quitting time each day. They ALWAYS cleaned up before they left each day, even going so far as to remove the plastic they laid to protect the carpet - frankly, they cleaned up more thoroughly than i would have expected them to. Performing beyond expectation pretty well sums up the work that
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew did for me. To illustrate, the tile pattern that i chose was a particularly difficult herringbone at a 45 degree angle in each of the rooms. they took the time to
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
the pattern out to assure that it lined up aesthetically as well as to assure that it was exactly what i wanted. as a matter of fact,
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
took the initiative to
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
the tile out in 2 different patterns so that i could choose the one i liked the best. Pride of workmanship & craftsmanship prevailed throughout the job that
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew performed for me. As an example of this, i had a niche installed in the shower & they perfectly bookmarked the tile that made up the niche and surrounding area. They assured that both the tile spacing and the tile level was perfect on both the shower/tub areas. I could not be more pleased with the finished job. During the course of the project i learned that this phenomenal team also installs baseboards and crown moulding and had them come back to do that work also. The living room area in particular was what most would consider a crown moulding installers nightmare. These guys did a fantastic job and did it in a remarkably short period of time.

has the exceptional eye of a true craftsman and it shows in the finished result. It was a genuine hassle-free pleasure doing business with this company.

Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
were professional , courteous and helpful from first contact with Ed, representative who estimated the job, to all the workers who completed the job. Ed understood exactly what I wanted to do with the porch and within very few weeks, the job was completed swiftly and accurately. The male carpenters, electrician and plumber, were on time, worked very hard and very polite. They always cleaned up at the end of the day and were easy to communicate with. Ed called in to me each day to check on the progress so there were no lapses in work orders. Overall, I am very pleased with the result and would recommend

to all who need this type of construction.

It's been six years since the job was completed and the facia of our deck has been rotting for 4.
Frenchtown Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
blames this on the manufacturer's poor materials - but WE didn't buy them. It will now cost us thousands to repair the deck.
His plumber, a joke of a sub-contractor, installed our shower body upside down and later had to break the wall to fix it. Electrician also iffy.

Green appears to be the nicest man around - until the contract is signed.

After a heavy downpour, we found a skylight was leaking. This was in the room of our house where my wife sees clients, so we needed the job done promptly and quickly. The project manager from B&G noticed that the clapboard on our dormers needed replacing, so replacing them with aluminium siding was added to the job.
We have used B&G before, and while they are on the more expensive side, they do very good work and they manage a project very efficiently. This occasion was no different. The project manager stayed on top of the job; the roof was replaced and new skylights inserted while we were gone for three days. What remained was finishing up the interior face of the skylights and installing siding on the dormers, which the workmen timed for the intervals when my wife was not working.
