    Gove did a great job. very professional in all aspects. Did a good job explaining all the work and their quote, showed up when they said they would and finished in a timely manner. They kept me up to date on all the progress, they managed a number of sub contractors as part of the project and keep on them and made sure they did great work too. High level of craftsmanship and attention to detail. Highly recommended.

    Ben has a knack for many things, including the following: quirky jobs that others won't take on and minor jobs that some of us do not have the time/energy/know-how/tools & equipment to do. My current house was built in 1937 and because of that needed some custom work. Not only did he dispose of my old basement stairs, install new ones but also designed and built a custom Dutch door, to provide a safer entrance for my family. He also designed and installed a custom sink into my half bath which only had a toilet. Ben has been back to do other things such as, install down spouts (which were missing), winterize my screened in porch and clearing clogs in the shower/sink drains in my full bathroom. I would recommend him for his intelligence, focus and determination and work ethic.

    We've worked with Gove Restoration in the past and are very satisfied repeat customers. Matt and his crew are dependable, honest and knowledgeable. This job unearthed more old rot than expected. Warren was up front about what was found and ensured everything was corrected in the new work. His attention to detail is amazing - a truly skilled craftsman. The job turned out better than we anticipated!

    Gove Restoration just completed a total renovation of my upstairs bathroom taking it down to the studs and building it back up including carpentry, sheet rocking, wainscoting, tile, plumbing, electrical, all new fixtures and a new glass door shower/tub enclosure - the room came out great. This was another in a long line of interior and exterior projects they have done for me over the last six year six years including gut renovations of the basement, kitchen/dining room/mud room (which including removing a wall for an improved layout) and turning a powder room into a full bathroom with a beautiful tiled shower. They've made an amazing difference in my house. All the projects were well run with high quality work and attention to detail. The whole crew including their subcontractors are a pleasure to work with and I feel comfortable having them in my home when I can't be there. Adam Gove is responsive, keeps me informed through every step of the project, makes great suggestions and keeps me stress free during the process.

    Gove Restoration is one of the best decisions we have ever made, especially for such a big and important job—that you have to live with, day in and day out! If you are looking to have something done, big or small, Gove Restoration probably did it for us—because we had them do everything. We recommend Gove Restoration 1000%. They earned the highest possible rating from us! We acquired a solid but run-down mid-1960’s split-level in Wethersfield. Other than essential maintenance, the house was not touched in 50 years. It was hard to imagine anything good coming out of that dingy house. Matt Gove and his brother Adam of Gove Restoration, with help from Dave Gove and their father, completely transformed that split-level, inside and out, into a spacious, modern, bright and airy, high-quality, insulated, comfortable, far from ordinary home, with state-of-the-art wiring and technology! The house feels good. Everything is rock-solid, built to last!!! Seven key factors that clearly distinguish Matt and Adam Gove, Gove Restoration from the rest: 1. Matt Gove’s honesty speaks for itself in his extensively detailed proposals. Every aspect of the job was discussed and broken down in detail and cost—even before we signed up. We discussed a budget, and we knew exactly what we would be getting, the exact material that would be used, and how much it would cost. We could have chosen any material, roofing, siding, windows, etc. that we wished. We preferred to rely on Matt for recommendations. Based on his tried and true experience, Matt provided us with many alternatives/options/at various price points. He also provided manufacturers websites for reference. Sometimes opportunities present themselves during a renovation and changes are advantageous. Matt always provides detailed change orders with alternatives. When Gove Restoration starts your job, they work on it exclusively until it is done. We never had to worry that we overlooked something. Matt thinks of everything! He made everything easy and worry-free. Another thing to keep in mind is that Gove Restoration truly specializes in restoration as well. We discussed every element in the house and decided whether to restore or replace. 2. We met several top-rated contractors about our renovation project, and truly studied their work to the smallest detail. We were completely impressed with Matt Gove, the quality and aesthetic of their work, his many solid ideas to improve look and functionality, the detailed proposal and fair price. His ideas were not just talk. He had already done everything he described, and we could see his work. 3. Impeccable craftsmanship in every little “up-close” detail is just as important as the big picture; if you have one without the other, you have nothing. Gove Restoration far exceeded our very high expectations and was everything we could ever want, or dream of, for this or any future renovation project. Matt and Adam Gove and their father are master carpenters. The craftsmanship is perfection. Matt Gove worked on the networking system with his brother Dave, who is an IT specialist and acted as a consultant for the job. They designed a unified, clean, wiring system for state-of-the-art technology throughout the house. Without exaggeration, they thought of everything! Everything is done right! Everything is solid. Everything is perfect! Really. 4. Design: Without Matt Gove’s expertise and design talent, the house would just be the same 60’s house with cosmetic fixes. With just a few very carefully thought-out tweaks to the design of the 60’s split-level, Gove Restoration converted the exterior to a clean modern craftsman look. Although it fits nicely in the neighborhood, it stands out as the nicest looking home in the area. They did the same with the interior—it no longer feels like a 60’s split-level! We wanted a front door area with no windows for complete privacy. To add light and a modern element, Matt put in the most perfect small windows up near the roof line above the door area. This little change created a very comfortable feel inside and a modern look outside. With minimal alteration, they made excellent use of wasted space, enlarged closet space, added precious space to the master bath, and made other rooms seem brighter and larger. They converted a summer sunroom into a heated/air-conditioned extension of the house, with a nice-looking secure storage area below. The exterior stairs leading to the sunroom were replaced, and we were amazed to see that Matt created a very attractive hidden space under the stairs to store those big plastic garbage bins! The interior and exterior elements and all the little details work together. The interior is fresh, bright, and modern. Matt Gove, his father and brothers put a lot of thought into this house and worked on it as if it was their own. 5. Because we lived out of state during this process, it was important to hire someone we could trust to do the job without daily supervision, and someone with excellent design talent. Matt Gove guided us through every decision throughout the entire project (and kept us informed every step of the way.) I would like to say again--Without his expertise and design talent, the house would just be the same 60’s house with cosmetic fixes. Due to unforeseen circumstances, our focus was diverted away from the project. With complete peace-of-mind, we could rely on Gove Restoration for all the finishing details, including all paint colors, window treatments, picking out the dining room light fixture, working with Cox, the alarm company, etc. He was happy to help in any way possible. He took care of everything! (Because of his interior decorating skills, and because we value his opinion, and we like him, we plan on taking Matt furniture shopping with us.) What he accomplished with that house is beyond anything we, or anyone else, could have imagined. Gove Restoration transformed that house into a fabulous, WOW home! 6. The Gove family are truly the finest people one could ever meet and work with. This was a huge project! But they made it so easy, and stress-free! We communicated easily and freely by txt msg, emails, phone calls, numerous txt pictures, and exciting visits! Through this project, we and our families have gotten to know the Gove family, who we now consider to be a part of our family! 7. When Matt needed to use a specialty sub-contractor (electrical, plumbing, furnace installation, generator, roofer, etc.), he knows, and used only the best people in the business. Even though he uses the best people, he still supervises every aspect very closely. He doesn’t take anything for granted. If it is not exactly right, it is re-done! Matt graciously agreed to pick out and order all of the window blinds for the entire house. When the window blinds came in, they were all cut just a little too short width wise. Any other contractor would not have noticed or taken the easy way out. Matt Gove made them replace all of the blinds! This is what makes Matt Gove, Matt Gove! This is what makes a job perfect! Other examples: After the Living Room Ceiling was finished/painted, the sun decided to shine a certain way. Matt did not like what he saw, so they re-sanded, etc. and repainted the sprawling ceiling. We asked Matt to select paint colors for us. He didn’t think the colors in some of the rooms that he painted were exactly right, so he made subtle color changes and re-painted rooms until they were perfect—who else would do that? The paver sidewalks weren’t lining up exactly as planned. He had them realign the sidewalks until they were right—same thing with the patio. The thought of renovating that split-level was overwhelming. Gove Restoration made it all easy and very enjoyable. Thanks to Gove Restoration our old house is better than new! We know exactly what went into the renovation of our home and that our money was well spent. We know that we have solid quality. We know that we can call Gove Restoration anytime!

    Matt and Adam, Paul and all of the subs were meticulous, professional, and very respectful of our home while they were working here. Our questions or concerns were handled promptly and addressed to our satisfaction. They offered good recommendations (such as recessed lighting) which added to the beauty of the project. They worked 8 am - 3:30 pm with a 30 minute lunch break every day and cleaned up after themselves with their tools neatly stacked and lined up before leaving for the day. They arrived on time and asked questions when necessary. It was a pleasure working Gove Restoration. We would definitely hire them again and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

    I found him to be very capable, trustworthy, reliable and punctual in his work. He has all-round versatile capabilities as a handyman  and has a wide variety of tools and equipment which he uses very deftly and which enables him to ensure quality work. His quotes were competitive and reasonable.

    This is not my first experience with Gove Restoration and I have additional work scheduled by them. They are on the high end of pricing, but the "you get what you pay for" saying is apt. They also use quality products like Benjamin Moore paint and are knowledgable about changes in construction product technology.  E.g., because of a newer primer technology and two top coats, I expect to get 3-5 more years out of this paint job than the last (which Gove also did and which held up well). They understand historic houses (I live in Old Wethersfield) and are able to navigate around and often anticipate the idiosyncrasies of old houses.  They understand the expectations of the Historic District Commission. They also have subcontractor contacts for work that is better done by someone with a particular expertise, such as plumbers, electricians and insulation contractors and tested resources for items likes doors and windows. I trust them in my house when I am not here.  The Goves and their crew are knowledgable, respectful, clean and they do not smoke. They are willing to answer one's questions and discuss pros and cons of various options in a way homeowner's can understand. They have all the right tools, which contribute to a truly professional job. They are thorough, neat and follow through.  Be aware that they make estimates, not bids. My experience is that their estimates are based upon few glitches and that with old houses, glitches are the norm. Also, I find that when one gets into a project, there are often add ons that one did not originally consider.  So, do not be surprised if the final cost turns out to be 20% or more over the estimate.

    Tim and his crew, Steve and Rob, expanded and completely remodeled our master bath. Having demolished the existing one, they expanded the footprint and installed a new shower, vanity, sink, and toilet. The tile work, crown moldings, and glass shower enclosure were expertly installed. In addition, they built a custom floating vanity that adds a nice touch. The finished product gets great reviews from all that see it.

    They also did a partial remodel of our spare bath replacing some of the tile with bead board, installing a pedestal sink, and replacing the toilet. Woodwork and tile were expertly installed and the paint job was very well done. Tim worked with us to come up with the idea of salvaging the tub/tile area and restricting the remodel to the other half of the bath for a significant saving. He also fulfilled his promise to complete the work before a large holiday gathering.

    Tim, the owner, and his crew, Steve and Rob, are very skilled workmen who produced outstanding results. From the outside, the windows look great. Inside, the moldings and sills for the complete replacements couldn't be done better. Some special molding on our bay window really stands out. Impressive throughout this project was the ability of Tim and his crew to overcome obstacles quickly and efficiently. It's clear that these guys really want to do the best work they can for you.
