I have used Alcantara Contracting twice now, once for some minor bathroom work and recently for kitchen cabinet painting and carpentry (shelving and window sills). Carlos was quick to return my message and to stop by to assess the job and to get me a quote. His team was very professional and a pleasure to work with. They managed to keep everything neat too despite the tight workspace, and they fin...

I own a condo in East Boston and it needed some serious re-work to the exterior brick wall to maintain a strong structure. I was referred to Carlos, the owner of Alcantara Contractors, by a family member who has used his services in the past and needless to say he did not disappoint! Carlos quickly responded when we reached out and within the week he had a quote back to us for the job. The re-work...

Excellent job!! From start to finish!! Carlos was one of three quotes I received and quickly called me to check in on the quote. He worked with me on costs. Carlos and his team came quickly to my condo (that I rent out) to assess and repair damages after it got flooded. Parts of walls needed replacement, insulation needed to be checked and fixed, baseboards, floor needed to be pulled up and replac...

The job went well. Called several handymen. Some did not respond and a couple came out but either did not send a quote. Carlos came to the house, explained what needed to be done, gave me a quote and sent an email of the same. The men arrived and removed the old facia board and siding, cut and fitted the new board in place and replaced the siding. All work defined in the estimate was completed and...

Carlos and his Alcantara Contractor team did a great job. They began the project when promised (January 2018) and completed it by July 2018 (about a month and 1/2 late which was understandable due to unexpected structural work). Carlos and/or his team explained all of the work they proposed to do and consulted us when new issues presented. Overall quality of work was very good and we are very plea...

I had some small water damage and needed a section of padding replaced and the carpet re-installed. Carlos and his workers were very professional, polite and on time. Also, I had Alcantara do a much bigger job and my experience with them was very positive.

Carlos, the owner, brought many suggestions to the table and spent the time trying to work within a budget at the same time bringing in the much needed updates. He discouraged some items that would have just made him money and was honest about costs. The workmanship in respecting the elements of an old home showed in repairing and restoring glass doorknobs to their prior elegance while still bring...

Carlos was fantastic about responding to our initial communication and showing up for a consultation. He gave us very helpful information during the consult, including recommending what we could wait on, as this is our first home, it needs a lot of work, and we are first-time home owners. We were very pleased with that process. However, it took several weeks and quite a bit of followup to get an e...

The front porch came out great! It was regraded to keep water running away from the house and resurfaced. The indoor work on the ceiling was done quickly and professionally.  It looks really nice. The roofing job was not done quite as expected. The fascia board was not replaced to cover the black rubber as discussed. After questioning this, I never heard back from them. I paid for the front porch ...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Three jobs needed attention. The front concrete and brick porch was completed first.  The roof of the living room bay area needed to be fixed using rubber roofing. Due to water damage, the bay area of the living room also needed to have the ceiling fixed.

Carlos, the owner, had Antonio come out and look at my porch. He removed the bottom step from my porch and said he would replace it. It was raining at the time and Antonio did not want to work in the rain so he told me that he would come back the next morning. Three days later and he has still not shown up. I have called Carlos repeatedly and he just keeps making excuses as to why Antonio has not ...
