Roof Facia and Gutter Repair
Clinton CT

Got a change to get up onto the roof this past weekend.
Thank you.

The gutters. The side bump out replaced and repaired.
The trim edges fixed.
The matching color of the new shingles to the old.
We definitely had a problem.
Thanks for doing what you do, and fixing it all so nicely.

Thank you so much for the great job you + team did with roofing the cottage.
Also, I very much appreciate all the thorough cleanup as imagine there were huge piles of debris.
 I enjoyed having you do this job with your excellent communication, doing swiftly within window of good weather, and at reasonable price.

When Spring rolls around I'll be starting to think about exterior shingling
and will contact you early/mid April to see about getting a bid from you.

Thanks again.

Hi Bruce,

Thank you guys so much for your great work and timely fashion.

You guys are really professional and as I told you when you were here,
not only is your work awesome, but you guys are a welcome breath of fresh air
in the way you work together and in the way you treat each other and your customers.

 The respect you all gave to our home and dog are greatly appreciated.
I love how everything was cleaned up and back together when you were finished.

Thanks again.

Bruce and Jim
Thanks for your e mail
I appreciated the fact that the job involved many different wood repair tasks
and your team did them all on time and professionally.
Best of all you kept me fully informed about your schedules.
You had all the right equipment and skills to complete the hard tasks.
Thanks for your services.

We inherited a quaint shoreline cottage from my grandparents,
and we rely on Bruce and Jim for their outstanding work.

One project involved a low concrete wall to create a courtyard area. Bruce made sure he spoke with the right state
and town agencies and completed all the paperwork. It was a process that required lots of patience and persistence.

Jim managed the wall project down the smallest detail, asking about trees and making sure the equipment
did not affect the neighbors. They also installed the white fence to finish the yard,
making sure to get the exact style fence we wanted.

Bruce and Jim reacted quickly to do a small project
when we had a leaking roof. It needed a new boot on the vent pipe,
and it was done within hours and looks fabulous.
They have also installed two doors, which look sharp and fit perfectly.

From a major wall & fence project to replacing a pipe boot,
Bruce and Jim have been friendly, responsive, thorough, and professional.

Hi Bruce,
Yes, please add this to your testimonials on your website -

Thanks so much Bruce and JIm for a fantastic job building our custom ladder to our loft.
We searched long and hard for someone who had the vision we had for a custom built ladder
to get to our loft in our beach house in Old Saybrook.

So glad we found you!
You understood what we were looking for right form the start and we are so happy with the results.
Everyone who sees it asks "where did you get that ladder - it is so cool."
You have a very creative mind and your work is extremely detailed.
It's clear you take great pride in your workmanship! Thanks again.

Jim went above and beyond (tub!) with the care he took making it look presentable and workable for our family.

After 25 years someone finally figured out what would work for us!

I will highly recommend you both for your fine workmanship, professionalism and also being real gentlemen.

Rebuild a steep staircase for a special application in Clinton, CT

"I don't think I can adequately express my gratitude.  
 I really wish when I was searching on-line that someone had told me that
someone like you existed.

It really meant so much to me that you understood my concerns
and worked with my issues with so much understanding and forethought.

I keep wondering if you hadn't really heard me and thought about what I needed.  
You came up with such a perfect solution.

 I know the solution you came up with couldn't have happened
without your really considering the issue and taking the time.

Thank you so much and anything I can do to let people know
about your skills and great work I am happy to!! "

Home repair job in Clinton - pre-sell prep

I can't thank Bruce and Jim enough for the professional service

Our family was able to quickly proceed with getting our
home ready to market. Their ability to tackle the number and
variety of home repair issues we had was amazing.

I would highly recommend their home repair services to
everyone. It was definitely a pleasure
meeting and working with Bruce and Jim.

Painting and drywall repair job in Old Saybrook CT

"Thanks for getting the work done so quickly and under short notice. Very happy with the service.

Thanks again,"  ~  Jim

"Bruce and his partner Jim replaced some window screens, hung window treatments, and stained my deck. I was very pleased with their work. They arrived when they said they would and stayed until the job was finished. They are conscientious and their workmanship is excellent. They pay attention to the details and their suggestions were on the mark. The product they recommended and used on the deck and the meticulous way they stained it has transformed my 20-year-old deck. It looks brand-new! I would certainly use their services again and feel very comfortable recommending them to my friends and neighbors."

Hi Bruce,

I am really happy with the work you and James did last year.

feel free to give out my contact info.

And I have told some other people about you, and will continue to do so.....

Hope all is well with you all,

Nathalie, Lyme CT


 Bruce and Jim,
Thank you for doing excellent work. Our deck looks beautiful.


Bruce and Jim,
I am very happy with my new shed roof. You and Jim did a fantastic job! The quality of your work and your attention to detail were outstanding. Thank you for using the 3/4" roofing nails which I realize took extra time and effort. I couldn't be more pleased and will definitely recommend you to all my friends. I also really appreciated how you kept in contact by phone and email prior to the job. It was a pleasure to do business with you.

Hi Bruce.... Just wanted to say thanks again for all the work you and Jim did at my house. So happy I found your website. I was thinking I would have to hire several different contractors for all my little home improvements, but you and Jim came out right away and took care of everything in one day.........masonry, floor tile, custom carpentry, electrical, and plumbing. I will definitely be calling you for future projects! You guys really did a GREAT job, with the added bonus of being friendly and reliable!

I would like to extend my thanks to you and Jim for a job (very) well done.
I had asked for a lot of work in an short amount of time and you both delivered, not only time wise, but in workmanship and professionalism as well.  Thanks to you both again for a job well done..

I just wanted to make sure I told you that I’m really happy with the work that you and Jim did. You guys are really nice and did a great job in my home with the ceiling fans and the drywall. If my dog Homer didn’t bite you that means you’re good people because he’s a good judge of character. All kidding aside, I am happy and will call you if I need anything done in the future.
~ Ella C. McBride


Thanks for the follow up call after the work you completed for us! I don’t even get that from my physician!

I have to tell you, our experience in working with you was an unexpected pleasure! Not only did you answer your phone when I inquired about your services and availability, you came the very next day and completed all of the items on my “need to do” check list satisfactorily and….at a reasonable price!

I have added your company to my Contacts and you will be hearing from me again soon as the “to do list” is always a work in progress including some of the bigger jobs we talked about.

Many thanks and appreciation for a great experience!
