Description

With 20 years of construction experience, this industry is second nature to me. I believe that true professionalism is born from the ability to work your craft with ease - always being a few steps ahead of the game, and knowing where to look for problems before they arise. As comfortable as I often feel on site and at the drawing board, I constantly expect improvement for myself and strive to perfect my work. With Black Bear Builders, you can expect to be cared for and respected as I help you in reaching your goals. Started in 1999, Black Bear Builders offers carpentry and general contracting services. The business accepts cash, check and credit cards....

It was a challenge for Stuart since the basement was finished. Being a contractor as well as a licensed mitigation specialist he was able to find solutions within the parameters that worked for me and the constraints of an older home. If the cost seems high, it's because my home required 2 extraction points. Considering all the work required, the price was fair. He was very conscientious, answered...

We had our home retested for Radon after adding a bedroom in the basement. The testing performed by Black Bear Builders provided a detailed report of the results - much more information than the one use carbon filter test we had performed a few years earlier. BBB performed the test while we were on vacation as we requested. Could not even tell that they had been there. I have hired BBB for renovat...

The project went great. Stuart is very good with organizing and we thought that the time frame was met. He was very particular making sure everyone showed up on time and checking in with us making sure we were satisfied. He was very tidy keeping everything clean during the remodel too. The contractors he hired were all extremely good at their jobs and very trust worthy. This project went very well...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Black Bear Builders did a complete remodel of our master bath. We had a very small shower and a huge jucuzzi tub that was never used. The large tub was removed and replaced with a beautiful glass and tile shower. The old shower is now a linen closet. Popcorn ceiling taken down and redone. We originally had an oak vanity with one sink. Now we have a beautiful deep flagstone color vanity, double sinks and Granite counter. We also put in heated flooring with porcelain tiles.

Major projects included construction of a new deck, porch remodeling, and most recently radon detection and mitigation work in our 1980's home.
