Vinyl Replacement windows
Yes, we install vinyl "replacement" windows. We typically use Harvey Brand vinyl replacement windows because of their high quality construction, highly efficient insulating values and attractive designs. They are competitively priced and have superior warranties.

We also use Andersen®, Matthews® and Marvin® windows for custom replacement of an existing window or windows and for new construction such as in a new addition.

For exterior doors, we use Therma-Tru® exterior doors, known in the industry for well made and long lasting doors. The doors are constructed in full composite material and with full composite door jambs that will never rot.

Who supplies cabinets, countertops and finish fixtures for a kitchen or bathroom remodel?
Typically we have the homeowner purchase those items directly from the suppliers. This way they get to choose exactly what they want for style, color and finishes and they also save money by purchasing direct. It is an easy process. We are always glad to refer you to the right supplier if you do not have a supplier of your own or know of none.
Of course we can also supply any those products based upon your choices.
We always work with our clients to help guide them with their choices and help explain about certain specifications, etc.

For kitchen and bathroom design, cabinetry and countertops, we typically refer our customers to HomneScapes at Cape Cod Lumber Co., conveniently located in Abington, Mass. In addition to their large, modern and beautiful showroom, they have expert designers who will expertly work with you to develop a plan. They can also place your order for the cabinets and coordinate the countertop vendor. Their service makes it all very easy.

What are your job-site conditions like during remodeling work?
We take care to work efficiently and cleanly so as to keep things organized as we work. We install floor and stairway protections and as needed, protect other rooms from any dust. At the end of each day we leave the work are clean, organized and ready for the next day's work.

Your sub-contractors?
Our sub-contractors include: Electrician, plumber, drywall, painting and tiling. We have been working with these same sub-contractors for many years now. They are some of the best in the South Shore region.

Do you work under a Building Permit?
Yes, depending on the nature and extent of the work involved, most remodel work requires a building permit. As a licensed and register Home Improvement Contractor, we apply for the building permit with whichever city or town the work is being done in. The building inspector performs progressive inspections through the end of the job.
It is always sound practice to work under a building permit when required.

FYI...For building permits, cities and towns generally charge from approximately $10.00 to $12.00 per $1,000.00 of overall contract price.

Do you work in condominiums?
Yes, we also remodel kitchens, bathrooms and other rooms in residential condominiums. As a matter of course, the condominium association should be made aware of any proposed interior remodeling to be done. Depending upon the nature and extent of the proposed interior remodeling, a building permit would still be required.

(Any exterior remodeling, window or door replacements, etc. must first be approved by the condominium association.)

What services do you offer real estate agencies?
For the real estate agent whose homeowner client is selling or is buying a new home or condominium, we offer home repair and remodeling services if needed or required to be done prior to selling or after purchasing the property.
