We were recommended to Eugene and O’Brien Construction initially to replace the leaking deck of our second floor balcony. We had considered enclosing the balcony but after several quotes and discussions with other designer/contractors had given up due to the time and cost constraints they indicated and with 3 kids under 5 we were unable to vacate the premises for the duration they indicated they needed during construction.
During the cleanup of the leak damage Eugene assessed our original plans and didn’t see why it couldn’t be done. He recommended a designer that was able to get us the building permits to fully enclose the balcony and we were on our way.
By the time we obtained the building permit we were into December and on a tight schedule to beat the snow. Eugene and his crew were extremely accommodating to our schedules and in controlling noise during our children’s naps. They were very clean and safety conscious. During every stage they would enclose each area in dust proof poly and thoroughly clean up afterwards. When not actively working as on weekends they disassembled their dust enclosures to make our kitchen and critical living areas accessible and functional.
Despite the fact that the project involved completely removing the roof over the kitchen and breached the walls in both of the children’s rooms we were only required to vacate the house for 3 days through the entire project.
Even with the accommodations they made for us they managed to get the structure and roof in place before it snowed. Once again, great guys to work with, great workmanship, they managed the project despite our time constraints at reasonable prices and great with kids to boot!
We highly recommend O’Brien Construction and truly owe it to them for getting this project realized. With them we were able to completely reconfigure our second floor giving us an additional room for the kids to use as a playroom / closet area and were able to considerably expand a previously non-functional bedroom. We have some additional desperately needed room and the overall flow of our house has been improved considerably. Thank you Eugene and O’Brien Construction.
