    2nd Generation Remodeling
    Mike and his crew were very professional and I can't say enough good things as he was responsive to all forms of communication and willing to go above an beyond for the job. He kept me informed of what they were going to be doing next, and the work he and his crew did was amazing. If there was anything that came up unexpectedly they found a solution to make the final result even better than what was originally planned. Mike was very straight forward about pricing and the timeline of the job, and he did not disappoint as he was right on. Overall the professionalism, quality of work, friendliness and politeness of everyone made this job one of a success story that I am proud to share vs the nightmares I hear about others. In the future if I need any type of construction work done Mike and his crew will be my first and only call.

    The professionalism your team had from the planning in the beginning all the way through the end was also very impressive. Great group of people, hard working, focused, and the work spoke for itself. I know who to refer my family and friends too for any remodeling jobs!

    RWL General Contractors
    We LOVE these guys! We wanted to refinish our boring junk-filled cement basement into a play area for our new baby and an office area for myself. The basement was basic cement with a separated climate-controlled room for storage. We wanted to get rid of the room, open the entire basement up, enclose the utilities into their own closet, and drywall/carpet everything, all before the baby arrived. Within a day of contacting them, RWL returned my call and made an appointment to assess what needed to be done. We showed them basically what we wanted and they helped design the final product. They estimated the work would take about 4 weeks and that they could start in early May, which was good because the baby was due in the beginning of June, in ~5 weeks. From the day they started till the day they finished, they were professional, reliable, and overall just awesome! They would arrive around 8:30/9 every morning and work till they finished their tasks for the day. In the morning, they would tell us exactly what they were planning on doing for the day, and before they left, they'd let us know what they planned on doing the following day. If there was a day they weren't going to show up, they would tell us in advance. If there was ever something we needed to do on our end (e.g. pick out paint color or carpet), they provided all the resources we needed in order to make our decision (for instance, they had their carpet guy come to the house with samples and we had the carpet picked out and ordered the next day). This was super important given our compressed time schedule and the fact that I was not very mobile. The RWL guys themselves were all super friendly, happy, and genuinely enjoyed working. They didn't dally around chatting but were super efficient and did the job really well. I enjoyed the days I worked from home because I could hear them laughing and sometimes singing. I adored this!! I was never worried about leaving the house with them there. If they needed to bring in subcontractors (like for the electrical, plumbing, and floor refinishing), their people were highly competent and reflected well on RWL themselves. There were a couple times we changed our minds and altered/added to the project and they accommodated our requests with no issues. If I had to find one negative, it would only be to say that it took them 4-5 weeks to get us the quote instead of 2. This put us super close to my due date and caused a bit of stress as to whether or not the project would be completed in time before the baby was born. But once they started working, they finished quicker than expected (even with our changes) and the baby was born the week after they finished. :) My husband and I were very happy with RWL and would hire them again in an instant. A+!!

    JJJ Painting & Construction
    There was more construction work that needed to be done before painting than originally thought.  The contractor worked his way around the house making the necessary repairs, starting in the front and ending in the back yard.  This way the painters could start on the front of the house.  All construction work was top-notch and definitelyy should have been done years ago.  The extent of the repairs was a little more than what was included in the original estimate, and resulted in a $400 up-charge, but once we saw the finished product, it was well worth the extra money.  There is something to be said for peace of mind.  The house has never looked this good.

    The service provider prefers to start work as early in the day as possible. ��His price is reasonable and compared to previous contractors that I've worked with, he's very responsive and returns calls promptly ��He is very thorough and clean, and at the end of each day gave an update on his progress. ��Overall, fantastic craftsmanship and no short-cuts.
    About the projects.
    The Jefferson-style staircase: it's a staircase that is meant for tight quarters but still has full-depth, full-width stair treads with alternating openings. ��We specifically requested this type of staircase in lieu of the spiral staircase because of the area it occupied in the living room. ��He took the appropriate measurements and drew plans for us prior to starting work and estimating the cost of the project. ��Once we approved he started work on the project. ��The stairs are outstanding and very sturdy, and look much better than the pre-fab spiral staircase that once occupied that space!
    The Mudroom Cabinet: This cabinet is a full floor-to-ceiling cabinet with a bench and cubby holes. ��This was a custom design that we requested. ��After taking the appropriate measurements and asking what we wanted, he had drawn plans for it and waited for approval prior to building the cabinet off-site. ��The bench and cabinet again, like the staircase, are an example of his outstanding craftsmanship.
    Openings and doors:��We had requested the 32" door in our downstairs half-bath to be changed for a 36" door, opening the opposite way to accommodate guests with wheelchairs. ��This was a quick project and he was able to get it done in a short amount of time despite the work required to re-frame the opening. ��The master bathroom in the house had no closet, but the walk-in closet had ample room for towels, etc. ��He suggested allocating part of the master closet for the bathroom, and we did so. ��We ordered a custom door for the new opening. ��This was another project we expected would take longer but again, despite the requirement to frame the opening and the challenge of a double-door, he was able to install it with ease.

    JJJ Painting & Construction
    I really wanted to like this company. I liked the owners; I liked that they were local, and I liked that they were a small, family-owned company. I did not like that the owners left for vacation the week that the majority of the work was to be done. I did not like that many of the wooden shingles were sanded, resulting in what looks like a poor paint job in many spots. I did not like that no one called to tell me about an upstairs windowsill that fell apart during prep. I had to call to ask about that, which prompted the employee (who admitted that he had considered the job done) to call the owner. I do like that the sill was repaired shortly thereafter--in fact, I like the carpentry work in general. I like that some of the shingles were replaced so that the paint job that I see every time I enter the house looks better. I don't like that many other parts of the house don't look so good. I also really, really, really don't like that the owners never showed up to look over the job with me. An appointment for such was scheduled, but no one showed. The checks I wrote were promptly cashed, though. I wish I had hung on to the last one until someone came to assess the job, but, alas, I did not. Bottom line: I will not use this company again, nor will I recommend them to others. (And I really wanted  to be able to do that!)

    Marshall Building & Remodeling
    My house was built in 1930 and has the idiosyncrasies that are typical in the that time period's construction techniques.
    I met with 2 members of the Marshalls- Tom and Andy on 2 separate occasions- one for windows and the second for the rest of the exterior of the house. They both are very personable, knowledgeable  and professional as well as a 'no pressure' in regards to their quote and follow-ups. Their quotes were well below their competitors.
     After signing the contracts (the first contract was for windows and the second was for the remaining work), we set up a preliminary schedule about 10 to 12 weeks out. I was contacted at the appropiate time and work commensed.  All their (sub) contractors were very good about letting me know when and where they were going to be working.
    The first part of the project was replacing old single pane windows and exterior storms with tripled glazed replacements . There were unseen issues with the windows in the house. Once the installer (who was excellent) got into the groove he replaced 20 windows in 3 days. Two more days were required for putting in windows in the porch that required some carpentry and installing the exterior door. (What an amazing difference the windows made on the porch). The windows and door have already made a huge difference to the house. Not only in appearance inside and out but also in temperature and noise.
    The roof (30 year architectural) was installed in one day. They even replaced the old flashing. We've had several large storms and there have been no issues.
    The siding, trim and gutters were the last and longest time project; approximately 7 days. They removed the old siding installed insulation over the preexisting insulation. The metal trim work they made for surrounding the windows was outstanding. There was an issue concerning reinstalling the pseudo 'helmet guard' on the new gutters. They installed their version of the leaf guard on the new gutters and it's even better than the old ones.
    All the contractors cleaned up after themselves and no damage was done to the property. Tom contacted me a few weeks after all the work was completed to make sure I was satisfied. 
    Having dealt with a variety of contractors over the last decade for many projects both residential and commercial I can assure you that Marshall is hands down the best contractors I have had the pleasure to work with. I can't stress enough at how pleasurable it was to work with people that cared about their craftsmanship and their reputation and would go the extra mile to make sure the work was done properly.
    I have a strong feeling I will be using their services in the future for some interior work that I would like to have done.

    He's excellent. I've been using him for 3 years. I found him through word of mouth. He's extremely professional and his work is outstanding. I can go and look at anything that he's done and I'm happy with it. I pay him hourly and sometimes I pay him by the job.

    CC Woodcrafters of New England
    Charlie the owner and his wife Cheryl are extremely responsive day or evening.  Charlie explained the process every step of the way, made great recommendations, called in advance to confirm all meetings and processes, and checked with us down to which side of the cabinet we wanted the handles installed.
    At this time we are waiting for the countertop subcontractor to install the quartz top which is in process of being cut, it cannot be started until the cabinets were completely in after which they take a mold of the pattern and then custom cut the block.  I will submit a review of this subcontractor once the top is installed in a week or two.
    I highly recommend CP Woodcrafters, they follow up on every aspect of the job, return calls promptly, show for all meetings and installation dates on time and as scheduled.

    Geller Associates
    Josh has done a number of remodel jobs for us, and this was the most recent. When we bought the house, there was an old kitchen downstairs with moldy cabinets. It was a nightmare! Josh took it all out. He took everything apart and stacked it neatly outside for the garbage pick-up. Then he swept up, so you couldn't tell it had ever been there. He charged us by the hour, but on other jobs he gave an overall figure. Previously, he converted a clothes closet into a linen closet, with beautifully finished shelves that will last longer than we will. He is an old-time craftsman. His specialty is planning and building kitchens and furniture, but he treated this job as if it were as important as all his other work. Although his shop is in Acton, it was easy for him to come down and bring everything in his truck. Josh is very polite and willing to explain everything he is doing.
