Below is a list of service providers and contractors that my friends, clients and neighbors have used and have recommended over the years as well as a few companies/ individuals against whom they have cautioned. Note that these are NOT necessarily my recommendations – and whether those listed are licensed or insured. In my experience, the quality of service provided by any company or individual can change dramatically in a matter of months or even weeks, depending on many factors. So buyer beware! Please let me know if you have a favorite contractor and I’ll add them to the list.
Knowing your home’s current market value is important as you decide on your next home improvement project, so feel free to call me for an assessment of your home’s value. Some projects will increase value; some projects will not, technically, “pay off” – but you’ll enjoy them tremendously as you live in your home.
List of Recommended Contractors/Service Providers
I have included under General Contractors all those who perform multiple kinds of work such as design, carpentry, kitchen and bathroom remodeling, masonry, decks, patios, fences and painting. There are separate Kitchen/Bathroom and Masonry categories for those who specialize. Chimney masonry, specifically, is under Chimney Services. Tree care is included under Gardening/Landscaping. Heating is combined with Plumbing since so many of us have radiators. Drain clearing has its own category, separate from Plumbing. Gutter cleaning is included under Roofing.
