    Straight Shooters General Contracting LLC
    We needed our entire first and second floor remodeled, it included, two full baths, kitchen, dining room, living room, front porch, back porch, and three bedrooms. It was a large job, very time consuming, and Sean and his crew did a first class job. It was very easy to communicate with Sean on what to expect for that week or month. They started the first floor first, and once that was completed, they moved up stairs. The guys were very polite, and incredibly easy to converse with. We have had work done in the past when it seemed like the contractor or workers were annoyed or very short with either me or my wife, but nobody on the crew was like that. They enjoyed taking time to answer all of our questions, and they never were shy about giving advice about what might look better or be more functional. All in all, it was a very pleasant experience, and we will be using Sean and his crew again.

    Bob Batchelder Superior Builders
    We were very pleased with Bob's work at my family member's home. He came in and assessed the job, explained what needed to be done and what materials he would need and advised a time frame. While working on the house he noted additional areas needing repair, and took the care to correct those as well; making sure everything was done precisely. The job was superbly done through Bob's expert workmanship. It was completed in the advised time frame. He is very easy to work with. Would highly recommend Bob Batchelder Superior Builders.

    Bob Apse Construction
    Awesome! Bob is great to work with. We had a vision and he was able to make it happen despite some of our unusual ideas. Smile. Bob is a craftsman and has attention to detail. He is easy to work with and caught our vision. He is timely and communicates well. He also was able to source other professionals as needed. (plumber/electrician/painter) Most recently renovated mudroom - tile floor and build bench. He does great work. Four thumbs up from us.

    Bob did an excellent job on my kitchen remodeling project. He recommended a kitchen designer who worked out of Northeast Kitchens and Granite (Susan). She did an excellent job on helping me design the kitchen and Bob implemented the design. His crews were all neat and came on time. He recommended a place to get the granite counter tops (Rosy's) and they also did a very good job. The kitchen is beautiful and he was very conscientious when installing the cabinets. I was happy with every step of the project. And I was very nervous about starting the project because of problems I had heard about with other contractors. But the entire process was pretty stress-free and I am really happy with the results. Bob is very good to work with. The cost was higher than other kitchen remodels because some work spilled into the living room, dining room and hall way. But Bob made sure all the details were seen to. I plan on working with him on future projects.

    Antoniel Painting & Finish
    Overall the work was fine. It is a little rough in some spots. The handyman was sweet but did not speak English so we had to communicate through a cell phone ap. I wish I knew this ahead of time as I would have been more prepared with my wishes already interpreted. The office sometimes took 2-3 days to respond to calls and emails but once they did the communication was professional and courteous.

    Bob and Corey were fantastic. Their work was thorough and really well done. Bob will explain everything he is doing and why he is doing what he is doing. They completed a completely new deck and stairs for my side entrance to my house, and fixed the garage inside and out. He contracted out the garage door replacement and some of the siding work, that work was well done too. The work they did looks 100% better than the originally damaged garage/steps. He is very responsive to phone calls and he and Corey were generally nice people to work with. They spent time doing the work correctly vs. rushing to just get it done and moving to the next job. I am not easily pleased, but they deserve this review and I look forward to working with them again in the future.

    Pegasus Design-To-Build LLC
    Reno started in August with Marc going through the house making sure that I hadn't missed anything. There was a closet that still had stuff in it because I couldn't reach the back of it. (This had been my parent's retirement home. I had lived with them for a few years before I finally moved out.) He was careful with the living room wallpaper when putting up the dust walls. The demo was complete in record time and dust in my temporary kitchen was minimal. New stonework stairs were built front and back for access from the driveway and to the back yard by Peter and his crew. They worked really hard, They filled in two of my basement windows as part of the remodel too. The stairs are beautiful. When spring comes around again they will be a great place to sit and enjoy a bit of sunshine. Duane and Francisco were fantastic when it came to the woodwork. The put in the cabinets and the pocket door and put in all new baseboard and molding around my windows to match the existing moldings. The electrician, Tony, and his team were really great too. The wiring was crazy, not bad, just 65 years old and done in a weird way. Many wires went through a set of switches that I needed to use. I now have working doorbells, extra outlets where I need them and more lighting and the kitchen than I dreamed possible. It's far from the fixture in the center of the ceiling and one over the sink that I used to have. I also have smoke detectors that don't need batteries anymore and don't go off anytime I cook bacon. Duane and Marc spent a lot of time drilling tile in my bathrooms putting in grab bars. It may be over kill to some but I am getting older and I am set up to be able to grab a bar whether I am standing, bending over or even sitting on a stool or in my tub. The bathrooms are beautiful, thanks guys. I had planned to do more to the garage and cut back to just changing out the door. Instead I insulated my walk-in attic with closed cell insulation. Yes it was expensive but it was worth it. I can already see the change in my heating costs. It is now too hot in my bedroom. The heat from downstairs used to go upstairs and then into the attic and out. Now it stays in the bedroom. I am sleeping under a sheet instead of a comforter while I work out how to set my thermostats. I added having the living room wallpaper stripped and then having the whole room painted including the ceiling. This was a mistake. The ceilings had been done with calcimine. The painters came back several times to correct the problem and finally got the ceiling looking good. They really worked hard. Finally I could get my furniture back into the house. This was 4 days before Christmas. With help I was able to have the family come for Christmas day and fun was had by all. The upstairs bathroom was in working order only needing a few grab bars and towels bars to be complete. We would have been done the first week of January but we were waiting for some scribe molding from the cabinet company which didn't come in until early February. I added in replacing my front door and a screen door on the new back door out to the yard which was done in January and were the last change orders on my project. Mike the lead contractor answered texts in a timely manner and checked in with me when ever there was a change in schedule. There is also an online dashboard with a calendar showing what is scheduled and who will be doing what when. Everyone was nice and polite, asked before using the indoor sinks and bathrooms when necessary and I was very happy with everyone who worked on this job. I would use this group again and recommend them highly.

    Skillville Corp
    I went well right up to the end. Bruce owns the company but doesn't do the work, he stops by to supervise but is more of a manager. I found the workers, especially their finish carpenter to be good at the detailed work I needed them to do. At the end of the project however I thought things started to get sloppy. The kitchen island was installed un-level taking me an afternoon to fix. The cabinets were installed without toe kicks so I'll have to finish that work myself as well. There plaster guy did not show up on the job so they had to hire a team that were unfamiliar with and although their plater work was good overall they spilled lot of liquid on the new unfinished oak stairway causing me to have to deep sand the treads before applying stain and poly. All and all ok work, not great.

    Three Masons Professional Handyman & Masonry LLC
    Drew did a fantastic job opening the door way in my master bedroom and adding the bi-fold doors. He was polite and cleaned up after himself. He also stayed and ensured the job was finished to my liking before leaving (7pm). I have used the Three Mason's before and I will use them again. I highly recommend them - also Lisa handling the paperwork and the scheduling is nothing but helpful and pleasant.

    TB Construction
    Excellent and we could not be happier. The installed our new kitchen, replaced old toilets, painted, rewired and added new electrical, small repairs like hanging pictures. Oh yes another fun project for them. After that wonderful winter of 2015 we discovered that their was no ventilation in the overhang on the roof. Well they took care of that and venter the entire house. They are also very good with electronic challenges! My husband and I are lost when it comes to setting up and programing and they took care of it for us! I think that about covers it. We call them for everything we need and so far have not come across anything they could not do.
