Comments from our Friends

One of the most gratifying parts of my job is getting to know my clients, some very well. Making such new friends certainly gives taking pride in ones work a new spin, in that there is no way that we are ever going to disappoint such great people. We have been very fortunate to stay close to many of our clients, many times undertaking multiple projects for them. We often receive accolades and thanks for the jobs that we do, but reading through these never ceases to make me smile.

Many thanks to all of you!

“Manny Barros of BBL Builders is a superb general contractor. My wife and I retired this spring and moved from the Boston area to Falmouth on Cape Cod. As grandparents, raising a 5th grader, it was a challenging move, and we weren’t able to close on the house until May14, just six weeks before our move date. Yet in that tight window, Manny coordinated a wide range of work and saw that it was completed to perfection before we moved in. This included installing new counter tops, a new sink and new appliances in the kitchen; painting most of the indoor rooms; replacing and painting some wood portions of the outside; replacing a sliding back door and bolstering the step on the deck; installing heating in the finished basement; and fixing a checklist of things ranging from simple to complex.

We cannot thank him enough.

The work was coordinated flawlessly. Manny’s pricing was clear and fair. He communicated quickly and consulted every step of the way. When his plumbers accidentally scratched the dining room floor installing the new appliances, they immediately acknowledged their mistake and refinished the floor without cost. The efficiency, integrity and quality of the work was impeccable. I can’t recommend Manny more highly.”

“This letter is in reference to Manny Barros and the work that BBL Home Improvements has provided for us.

In 2006 we contracted with Manny and his company to install all new windows, doors and to finish off all the trim on our home in Falmouth. The job was done with great attention to cietail, was completed in a timely manner and come in right on budget.

 In 2007 we made the decision to renovate our kitchen. Given the quality of work that Manny provided in the previous contract we made the decision to have Manny complete this job as well. Once again, Manny did an outstanding job. We worked with Manny on every detail of this renovation from the cabinetry to the flooring and the results went beyond my expectation. We truly ended up with a designer kitchen that met all of our needs! This time we came in under budget.

The year 2008 has once again brought more work Manny’s way. We recently purchased a second home and BBL is very much involved in this property as well. This time he is completing the renovation of the basement office and family room.

In this day and age it is so very rare to find someone that is not only extremely talented but also as honest as the day is long. Manny is truly a skilled professional and that is why we have trusted him with our most important assets, our homes. He gets things done right the first time and you can always count on the quality of the work.

If you would like to speak with us directly about this we would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. We can be reached at ###-###-####.”

“My family has had the pleasure of working with BBL Builders construction twice, once for our roof and again for a restructuring of an addition to our home.

There truly aren’t enough words to express how impressed we were by the professionalism and level of craftsmanship from both the aforementioned projects. Manny Barros Jr. and his entire team were there from Step One to completion. His knowledge and attention coupled with that of his team demonstrate how BBL is a company that cares. I would use BBL again for any and all projects without reservation!”
