Peachtree Builders Testimonials | References

At Peachtree Builders, our goal is 100% satisfaction.

Our pledge is to start your project only after you know what you’re getting, how much it will realistically cost (including our best guess about where unknown conditions could cause extra expense), and when you can expect completion. And then we deliver just that. We communicate well and thoroughly, and we show up for work when we tell you we´re going to. We keep a clean job site. We don´t want surprises any more than you do.

But don´t take our word for it. Read what our clients have to say in these testimonials.

Home Remodel of Kitchen, Bath, Living room

Marjorie and I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job that Peachtree did with our recent remodel. We continue to enjoy our beautiful new kitchen, master bedroom, master bathroom, and living room. To us, the most important thing that sets Peachtree apart from other contractors we interviewed was your responsiveness. In fact, one of the primary reasons we decided to choose Peachtree over a number of other highly regarded companies is because of your patience with our numerous questions. We very much appreciated that you promptly replied to every phone call, email, and text that we sent you throughout the entire process – regardless of the perceived urgency of the issue. Topnotch customer service like yours is especially relevant for a job as big as ours was. There will always be unanticipated construction problems that arise (with any contractor!), but the professionalism by which Peachtree handled these issues is what truly distinguishes you from others. Keep up the good work! We would certainly use Peachtree again for future work.

Respect for Client and their Property

Everyone tells nightmare stories about contractors- they're never on budget, always under-estimate completion times, and leave their house's a mess. Our experience with Peachtree was just the opposite- Richard and his crew could not have been any neater, more professional and more respectful of our space during renovations- thanks for an awesome experience- can't recommend you highly enough.

Thanks again!

Professional Process and Planning

Richard and his staff were very knowledgeable and transparent during the proposal and design process. They gave realistic estimates for design options and costing. We received regular updates, including pictures, on the status throughout the project. The quality of the workmanship and follow up on all of our questions was excellent. We would whole-heartedly recommend Peachtree Builders to others.

Weatherization Project, Location: Windsor VT

Peachtree Builders did a superb job insulating our house and making structural changes. Richard Nelson has a top-notch crew of skilled carpenters with years of experience, and a network of plumbers and electricians he calls upon should the need arise.

He was always right there for us.
No phone call ever went unanswered.
There was no blaring of boom boxes, no dumping of trash that was never cleaned up.
Best of all, the work ended up costing exactly what they estimated. A month later, we called Richard with a few follow-up questions and he answered the same day.

This was the best construction experience we've ever had.
Two thumbs up! 2 thumbs up

Historic Windsor Letter

Dear Richard,

It is with pleasure that I write a testimonial for your services as a contractor. In the fall of 2010, we were confronted with an emergency and you responded immediately.  Your work to replace the sheathing on the Stephen Jacob House was urgently needed when to keep the roofing contractor on schedule.  You were sensitive to the historic fabric of the building and worked in an efficient and careful manner.  You cleaned the area thoroughly upon leaving the job site. We found you to be honest and responsible in your charges and communication with us.  We would recommend you and hope to work with you again.  Any potential client may contact me at the numbers and email listed.  Best wishes in your professional endeavors.

Listening To Our Clients Needs

Peachtree Builders replaced a sidewalk, addressed drainage issues and repaired an entryway for an apartment attached to our home.  Rich was very helpful in problem-solving drainage issues prior to replacing the walkway, as well as using my feedback about where snowfall off the roof was creating icy conditions impacting the placement of the sidewalk.  By daily stopping by the worksite to discuss the progress of the project and soliciting feedback from me, I felt that we were working as a team as the work progressed.  Rich is efficient in pulling together subcontractors as needed, and seems to have many connections in the “building community” with valuable skills to enhance how the project came together as a whole.

Challenging Repairs

Our 10 year old home sustained wood rot around six windows and damage to siding under a roof.  Rick Nelson of Peach Tree Builders came to our house, took several photos and gave us an estimate on the cost of the repairs.  He explained our options including using better material that would last longer.  A few months before the repair we had an enormous tree fall on top of another roof causing damage to another part of the roof.

The Peach Tree crew came out for the initial project and gave us a further estimate on the additional part.   The whole project was kept within our budget.  They did an excellent job, were very professional and neat in their work.  Our house is an unusual color (noble brass) and we had one can of the paint – they used this paint  to coat the wood before putting it in place.  This created a very neat appearance without spilling any paint on the surrounding wood.
In summary they were excellent in all ways and we would not hesitate to hire them again or to give our highest recommendation.

The Collaborative Process Results in Repeat Projects

I have hired Peachtree Builders for several major home repair projects and, based on my experiences, would highly recommend them. An example of the carefully planned and implemented services that Richard and his highly skilled employees provide is a kitchen project carried out in my home in April 2009. I had a dingy, dated linoleum floor and wanted to explore the possibility of unearthing and then refinishing a viable hardwood underneath. Richard patiently and thoroughly worked with me to decide whether to take the risk of unearthing a possibly rustic-looking hardwood, as opposed to covering the floor with pergo. We decided to take out the linoleum and restore the hardwood, and I couldn’t be happier with its beauty on a daily basis. Richard and his colleague completed the project in a timely way and worked within my budget.

As echoed above, in addition to the excellent “product”, what struck me as distinctive about working with Peachtree Builders was the collaborative “process”. During and after the project, they checked with me regularly to ensure that I was satisfied with the quality of the work – which I absolutely was. Due to my experience with the kitchen project, I hired Peachtree Builders to replace my roof. For all future home repair projects, this will definitely be my company of choice.

Restoration and Respect of Original Features of the Home.

We have always been concerned about doing renovations on our home because it’s over 200 years old.

Fortunately, we had Richard do our estimate and he carefully looked at the bathroom that we wanted to remodel in order to accurately assess what problems we might run into. He was very honest about problems that the area of the house may have, and made several suggestions about how to solve them. Since it is such an old house, we also wanted to be realistic about balancing repairs with cost. Richard gave us a clear estimate and was very accurate about every individual piece of our project.

The timing of our project also fit our needs well. Richard started the project and then we asked him to take a break for a few weeks while I was at home with our new baby. He was very flexible and we called him back a few weeks later to finish up the work.

Both Richard and his painter were respectful working in our house, cleaning the area well after each visit. This was especially important to us because we have two young children at home.

I would not hesitate to call Richard again or recommend him to anyone else for their home repair needs. In fact, he is already schedule to begin work on another area of our house.
