“I was very happy with Bryan’s work and his crew. They worked through the rain so that they could finish on time! Having a young family, I appreciated the fact that they left my house neat and clean every evening. I recommend them to my friends and I would absolutely hire them again.”

“We have had American Home Building & Refinishing work on our home several times over the years. From remodeling our basement to repairing our strom damaged roof and ceiling, we have found Bryan to be a reliable professional. He and his crew are creative and conscientious craftsmen. They work very clean and are always respectful. We appreciate his honest approach and trust that the job will be done right and to our satisfaction. Like a cherished car mechanic, we wouldn’t think of having anyone else work on our home. Now if we could just find that cherished car mechanic…”

“The difference between American Home Building & Refinishing (AHBR) and their competition can easily be seen from the first meeting. My wife and I had a huge indoor project that required significant analysis to determine the load effect of removing multiple walls to open up our middle floor space. We had three contractors in to look at the project. One contractor never came back, one said he was too nervous to attempt the job, and the price from the third was triple the price of AHBR. AHBR showed 100% confidence in their analysis and the price was well within our budget. Once the job started, the project manager handled every aspect of the project on a daily basis to keep the project on schedule and ensure the quality of work exceeded our expectations. The work accomplished included; analysis, demolition, reconstruction, and the finer touches like paint, tile, and fine tuning. In the end, we ended up with a room that everyone just gushes over when we have parties. We have Thanksgiving every year and the resulting room accommodates 20-40 people in a fantastic party like atmosphere. With the success of this project, we employed AHBR for another huge project which was to tear down, redesign, and rebuild our multi-tiered deck. Again, the quality of work exceeded our expectations. We host parties throughout the year and both our inside and outside areas are loved by our family and guests. American Home Building & Refinishing is a top tier construction firm who represents intelligence, hard work, common sense, and genuine care over the project and the people who hire them.”

“With a major addition in mind and not knowing who to call, I cantacted American Home Building and refinishing who was advertising in the local town paper. Bryan Shea met with me within a few days and discussed my ideas. This is a complete building company! Bryan put me in touch with a planner who drew my ideas, implemented a survey on my property to ensure I met code, coordinated tree removal in oreder to begin construction. With the addition, I needed an upgrade to my electrical, Bryan took care of it, third zone to the heating, no problem, move and pave driveway, yes, finished landscape after construction, done! All within the original estimate. As construction was underway you find yourself upgrading items (hard wood instead of carpet) even though your budget may not accomodate. Bryan was always available, willing to discuss options, and even with my upgrades found ways for me to meet my budget. It’s been five years since my addition and I can’t say I regret at all hiring Bryan and his crew from American Home Building & Refnishing. On time, on budget , and within the time line we discussed. His crew was always professional including sub-contractors. I could tell his reputation was his name! Currently doing some remodeling with the older part of the home and already have discussed options with Bryan. Thanks Bryan!”

“My family, neighbors, and friends have used Bryan Shea for several major as well as a few simple projects. His work is superb and on time. He leaves each day having cleaned the area in which he works. I have no hesitation in giving his name to anyone who wants quality work done and on time.”
