Hi Mitch,

I forgot to email you the other day, but wanted you to know your guys did a quick and efficient job on the TH. I was very pleased with the work and am now getting the materials for siding, which I hope can get done in the next week. I wish all my contractors were as easy to work with as Village Builders. Have a good weekend. Rosie

Fred,

Your guys were GREAT!

Turns out, it took a creative change of attack to really get into the void space that was letting in the cold.

And, they found it. We are very satisfied clients!

 

Thank you.

Our ‘Seal of Approval’ goes to Village Builders. Their construction approach created a natural flow connecting our contemporary home to the addition, new porch and breezeway; which leads to the garage. We also recommend Village Builders for their integrity and reasonable price.

Village Builders are reliable and efficient. I bought an old house and they have been a tremendous help in upgrading and rehabilitating the old girl. They are always within a few dollars of the quotes they have given me, and the guys are respectful and efficient. I wouldn’t even consider hiring another contractor for my plumbing, heating, electrical, carpentry and insulating needs. If I have an emergency they are there right way to take care of it. There seems to be no job too big or too small and they even show me how to do a few things myself to save money. I always call Village Builders first.

Dear Fred,

As you know, my first building experience was in the service supervising the construction of bowling alleys, service clubs and other large recreational buildings. After that, I worked for nursing home chains with responsibilities for the maintenance of health care facilities. This was followed by the responsibility for the construction of several large additions to facilities at Smugglers Notch. As you are also aware, I have developed a portfolio of investment properties in Lamoille County.

My most recent project was an apartment property on Clay Hill in Johnson. Village Builders was contracted to do all structural carpentry and to foam the building. First, I would like to comment upon the competence, professionalism and efficiency of your carpentry crew that operated under Dana’s and your direction. There was not one day missed by any member of the crew except with significant advanced notice. The building’s structure was finished in what I consider to be a record 46 days from the commencement of work on the poured slab. The cost was billed at an hourly rate and the total cost was significantly below your estimate, and your estimate was the best I received. The quality of the work was more than satisfactory, and your crew performed a number of tasks outside of the original scope, (ie. Installing locks and snow guards). There was minimal conflict between subcontractors. All in all, the experience was exceptionally good, and I would welcome the opportunity to repeat it.

The rigid foam technique that you have pioneered in this area, was new to me. Your explanation of the cost benefits and its improved structural integrity convinced me to give the technique a try. The cost savings were real, and the structural integrity is obvious. I cannot at this point, determine the energy efficiency, but the building meets the criteria of the state’s five star energy efficiency program.

Fred, I owe you and your crews a great deal of thanks. I would be happy to tour the building with any prospective developer to whom you are making a proposal. All of us at Trinity Management wish your team well.

Dear Fred,

It seems like only yesterday that I was so concerned with the “unknowns” of my construction project. I had had one bad experience with some previous work that I had done to my home by another contractor. I now needed to do another project and find a new contractor. I got prices, estimates and met with three contractors in all, it was confusing but each one added a little more information to my newfound knowledge of working with construction and builders. It was a valuable experience.

Now my project is complete and I couldn’t be more delighted. You have restored my faith in the fact that there are good, honest and trustworthy people out there that one can trust and work with. You bent over backwards to help me save money and get my project in on budget. Your men were complete professionals and worked together like they’d been doing it all their lives. They show up on time, did what they said they’d do and didn’t waste time. I can’t stress to anyone that is considering any type of construction work to talk with you and your professional team. You will come away with the same trust and confidence that I felt in the very beginning of this process and when your project is complete you will have a great deal of satisfaction if knowing that your project was done with care, consideration and YES, you made the right choice when you chose Village Builders.

Dear Fred,

For your info: From 11-26-02 to 04-23-02 (148 days) I used 339.7 gallons of oil. This calculates to 2.295 gallons per day. Thanks for using the foam insulation rather than fiberglass.

Dear Fred,

It seems like only yesterday my wife and I started planning for our new camp on Lake Eden. As we prepare to move into the camp next weekend, we are excited and I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for your part in the project.

I am sure you can remember, I was considering fiberglass, going with sprayed on foam insulation or some combination of the two, until we talked with you. Based on the performance we got this winter from using sprayed on foam insulation, I would never consider fiberglass again. We used less than 400 gallons of propane to heat for an entire winter! This low usage is even more impressive when you consider it was all it took to heat a 1909-square foot home during construction and that the casing boards around the doors and windows were not installed until just this past month.

The project has been a great success. I would highly recommend spray in foam insulation to any one who is considering a new home, renovation or addition. Your crew was a key part of the project. Your crew showed up when they said they would and performed the work on schedule, cleaning up when they were through.

Again, thank you. We plan on having an open house sometime this summer, we will be sure to send you an invitation.

The Village Builders crew was accurate, on schedule, professional (& clean) when they renovated a bedroom & bath and installed (in a cubby) this fabulous sauna. We love in, winter & summer, and as we get older we love it even more for the aches & stiffness. Thanks Fred.
