I felt the workmanship and communication was great. Everyone showed up when they said they were, and stayed until the work was completed. They left my house neat as possible when they left everyday.

Amy D.

The Forest Glen Construction Co staff addresses and resolves problems effectively. They take a whole home approach to understanding what you need and how to get you there! Their advice is invaluable. I love working with them!

Margaret C.

The Forest Glen Construction Company staff were very personable and straightforward; no tricks or misrepresentations and they will work with you to meet your project's functional and budget goals.

Dave & Ellen T.

They did a fantastic job and I would recommend them. I thought the project manager was exceptional. The carpentry team was fantastic and sincere. They were professional and very timely. They finished ahead of schedule. I heard about Forest Glen Construction from a sign down the street and knew Tom. He gave us a lot of ideas and he is why we moved forward with it.

Erin & Nick T.

I was most satisfied with their knowledge, professionalism, most all the contractors were very neat and clean. They were also very pleasant to have early in the morning. I thought that Tom did very well and that it was great that he came with a computer generated simulation of the view that we would have within the completed home.

Myra & Michael H.

I left town for 3 months while the construction work was completed in my absence. I was advised of the status of the project at all times and promptly informed of any additional work that was required or suggested. I do not know of any other Company that I would have felt comfortable enough with to leave my home completely in their hands. Came home 3 months later to a completely new home and absolutely LOVE the final results!

Tom R.

I was most satisfied with their ideas. I thought I knew what I wanted, but then they gave me a lot of great ideas. Their ideas enhanced my project.

Second Project Feedback:
We are really enjoying our updated kitchen! Thanks for all your advice. You are very practical and knowledgeable about design. Thank you also for letting your men start so quickly and finish so fast. They are all terrific!

Original Project Feedback:
Thank you for the outstanding work you have done on our house! We are so overwhelmed by the change in our lives that our beautiful new addition has given us. It is a tremendous improvement to our house, better than we hoped! Your attention to detail is amazing, and you made the whole experience easy for us. We also liked the passion that all of your subcontractors had in what they did; they are lucky they like what they do, and so are you. Many neighbors and friends have commented that it is beautiful.

Thanks again, and good luck in your future work.

Sincerely yours,

Karen and Pat D.

Probably the simplest thing we can say right now is "Thank You!"

We have been back in our "new" home for a month and are continually reminded of the high caliber of work you and your subcontractors brought to our remodeling job. The attention to detail, the willingness to work with us through all the inevitable problems encountered in remodeling an older house helped make the entire process manageable with as little stress as possible. Of course, we had heard from others about their experiences with general contractors and as our project progressed we realized how fortunate we were to have contracted with you.

Best to everyone,

Jean and George R.

The reconstruction of our house is complete and we couldn't be happier. We now have everything that we wanted and we "endured" the process wih only minimal disruption to our lives. Everything went very smoothly.

We extend a personal invitation to you to come and see the finished product. We will be happy, as well, to open our home to prospective clients.

With warmest regards and thanks,

Adrienne and Gerald L.

I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how pleased I am with how our project turned out. I have never had such a smooth experience as I have had with you and your company. I look forward to an ongoing relationship and the opportunity to refer Forest Glen Construction to others.

All the best,

Michael C.

From start to finish, we are happy with your work. Everything was completed in the time frame you gave us originally. (Always a delight). Your workmen were welcome in our house because of their accommodating and considerate manner.

Thanks again for your attention in this project.

Sincerely,

Marilyn and Don C.

We have been so pleased with the work you have done to our home. It is literally a new house on the outside! Joe was a pleasure to work with and we are recommending Forest Glen to anyone who asks. We're looking forward to seeing your projects around our neighborhood and hopefully someday, back in our own home when we redo our kitchen!

Thank you,

Carrie S.

Just recommended Forest Glen to more of our friends - I suspect they'll be calling you. Fifteen months later, we just wanted to let you know how very happy we still are with the house. After seeing other friends/neighbors use other firms, we feel so fortunate to have worked with Forest Glen. You made the project pleasant and exciting. We love our house, and it is easy to recommend you!

It was a pleasure doing business with you.

Mary Rita L.

It has been a pleasure having you manage our house renovation.  You are exceptionally hard working and efficient.  It was impressive to watch you work.  We look forward to many years working with you.

Sincerely,

Joyce & Chris A.

Thanks for building so many things we have so enjoyed.

Maren D.

The employees and subcontractors of Forest Glen Construction Co are professional and courteous.

I was satisfied when they surpassed the schedule. They were very responsive to our needs and in directing us. They pointed us in the right direction when we needed to pick things out and we were very satisfied with the choices.

 

Bob & Nancy-Ellen Z.

We have used Forest Glen on 3 different projects (master bedroom/bath addition, kitchen renovation and front porch addition) and have been very happy each time. Tom Reidy (the owner) each time translated our hopes into an affordable and beautiful result. We appreciate the quality of the workmanship, the ease of communication with Joe (the project manager) and Tom, and the keeping within expected costs. We also have asked Forest Glen for recommendations when we have needed unrelated repairs to our home and have had great results with their referrals.

Rob G. & Maren D.

The Forest Glen Construction Co staff communicates with me effectively. Joe was always quick to respond with a call or text.

A very fine company, probably one of the best out there!

Marshall & Susan P.

I was most satisfied with the professionalism, and work completed in a timely fashion.

Penny H.

They did a professional job with the project.

There were some things that weren't on time. It wasn't their fault though. I had tile that didn't come in and some other things that took a while to ship so it took longer than anticipated.

I am likely to recommend Forest Glen Construction Co to a friend.

Roger S. & Jill D.

I was most satisfied with the Forest Glen Construction Co workmanship. They did as promised.

Heather & William H.

Forest Glen is extremely trustworthy. Joe is exceptional and very professional. I've recommended Forest Glen to four people and speak very highly of our experience. We would certainly use the company again.

Linda & Dan F.

Tom R. was an amazing person to work with. Professional in every respect.

Mindy & Steve B.

The design is a great one for our space. The cabinetry looks beautiful. We also really like the roofing and front entryway structure.

We have recommended Forest Glen to others. However, I do think it's the responsibility of the company to follow up and ensure that all details are finished in a high-quality manner.

Jim & Anne H.

I was most satisfied with their ideas. I thought I knew what I wanted, but then they gave me a lot of great ideas. Their ideas enhanced my project. I have used them before.

Patricia W.

I left town for 3 months while the construction work was completed in my absence. I was advised of the status of the project at all times and promptly informed of any additional work that was required or suggested. I do not know of any other Company that I would have felt comfortable enough with to leave my home completely in their hands. Came home 3 months later to a completely new home and absolutely LOVE the final results!

Tom R.

The craftsmanship and detail. For example, moldings and walls were all very well done. Follow up on details like HVAC and electrical were well executed.

Laura & Matt W.

I was most satisfied with the people. I liked all the people. They had great workers.

Robert & Stacey T.

I was most satisfied with their knowledge, professionalism, most all the contractors were very neat and clean. They were also very pleasant to have early in the morning. I thought that Tom did very well and that it was great that he came with a computer generated simulation of the view that we would have within the completed home.

Myra & Michael H.

The quality of the work and the creativity of the design was fantastic.

This is the second project they've done for us. Originally we heard of them from a magazine or newspaper.

They could have given us some options for our electrical outlet cover plates. The ones they installed didn't really match, and we had to go out and purchase some custom ones ourselves. It's not really a big thing, just something they could do better.

Larry & Pam T.

They did a fantastic job and I would recommend them. I thought the project manager was exceptional. The carpentry team was fantastic and sincere. They were professional and very timely. They finished ahead of schedule.

I do have outstanding items, but I trust they will be taken care of. We just need to finalize some details.

I saw the sign down the street and knew Tom Reidy. He gave us a lot of ideas and he is why we moved forward with it.

Erin & Nick T.

I liked the workmanship, the communications, and them helping with the details of the project. They were great and I will certainly use them again if I need anything.

Tom B.

The principal of FG used to work with a larger construction company with whom we did a project. When he set up his own business we were happy to use him, as the quality was the same with much better value.

Overall I very much liked the experience. We had one error due to a misreading of the plans; however Forest Glen immediately got to work on it and solved it to our satisfaction.

We've now done several projects with FG and will likely do more.

Dave & Ellen T.

The on site crew was great. They were here everyday, and were accessible to answer questions/address concerns. The subcontractors were very pleasant to have in our home.

Rick & Mary F.

We were completely satisfied with our experience with Forest Glen. As a matter of fact, it exceeded our expectations in many ways.

I could not believe how professional and skilled the people were that renovated our home. I was impressed every day at how hard they worked and their knowledge level. I was also thrilled with Joe, he is a master of organizing every crew and keeping to a timeline.

Forest Glen is a first class company. I never had any doubts through the entire process. I knew in the end, I would love our new home.

Jen & Patrick B.

They came up with the idea for the addition to our home and they did most of the work for creating that for us. We are very happy with what they did and we are very pleased with the final outcome.

We have known about them for a long time and we have always worked with them for our home improvement projects.

I have already recommended Forest Glen Construction to friends and I will continue to do so.

Mark & Sheila B.

There was an extremely high quality of craftsmanship and an ability to coordinate subs while getting excellent and timely results. That was very appreciated. They also worked through unexpected snags fairly and with an eye for safety and proper completion of the job. They were very willing to correct deviations from the plan as well as requests for minor modifications. Things sometimes need alterations once they go from concept to reality and Forest Glen was accommodating in this respect.

Peter & Suzzette J.

Kudos to you, Forest Glen, and your team! 

Joe was most cooperative (as he always is) and Vern did the job exactly as it should be and was great to work with.

Thanks!

George R.

Can't say enough good things about you guys to our friends. We are having a neighborhood Christmas party in early December, so lots of nickel tours to show off your good work.  People are generally amazed we have only good things to say, no horror stories. We loved the experience.

Mickey S.

Erin & Nick

Both Tom and Joe were good at asking questions to understand the "need" rather than just my "want", thus proposing and executing the best possible solution. Both are very personable, reachable, and responsive. Whenever I emailed or texted them, they were quick in their responses. The work was done to standards and the end result was great. They kept me in the loop with updates on the progress. Before I hired them, I looked at their reviews on various sites and their customers only had good things to say. It is probably due to Tom and Joe's personality and the end result. Before selecting them, I did a vendor comparison on various factors and they were the best. I highly recommend them.

Kishore S.

I was most satisfied with Joe. He did a great job keeping us on the loop of things. He gave good suggestions and advice along the way.

The project manager, Joe, made sure we knew what was going on. He would come by and check in on us. He was the one who made the job go smoothly.

Elissa & Craig G.

The employees and subcontractors of Forest Glen Construction Co are professional and courteous. Workers are the best. Great to have around. They do exceptional work.

John & Karen D.

Wonderful communication on normal work schedules and issues as they arose. No remodel is without some surprises. But we felt involved in the solutions, so the project felt uniquely our own. I hear family and neighbors bemoaning their contractors, and feel very lucky we found Forest Glen. I would do it again in a flash!

L.E. & Mickey T.

I was most satisfied with the project manager, Joe, he is spectacular and really responsive. I felt very comfortable with the crew. I've had a really good experience.

Daniel & Julie S.

Jen & Patrick B.

Every time someone mentions they've done work, they complain about all the headaches - deadlines, costs, etc. I never felt that sort of frustration with Forest Glen. I have a friend who went ahead and started work on her house (despite my suggestion she call you) and she's been out of her house for 3 weeks while they redo her floors. I've been biting my tongue not to say - I told you to call FG! 

Joyce A.

The kitchen and front hall, not to mention the little closet out back, are sensational. And this with the guys taking on a few challenges I don't think they'd ever faced before, like a 7th floor unit with loopy concrete and very thick walls, installing a cork floor, building a new front hall closet and then finishing the crown molding with plaster (the old-fashioned way) rather than wood. Patience, skill, handwork and Joe resulted in something that so far is truly spectacular. We are very grateful.

 

Howard & Jane T.

Of course my previous message fails to say anything more about Tom beyond that we trust him--which we obviously do and is vital for a job like this. Fact is, it was Tom who walked around our place once and in five minutes came up with the preposterous idea of popping the closet out of the kitchen into the front hall and then having the gall to say in no time we'd just assume the building came that way. Bingo! The new closet was created with such care that it truly looks like it was permanent, which isn't easy in an 86-year-old building. We love it. And that, of course, allowed the fridge to move over and was the key to opening and brightening the kitchen in such a remarkable way. A brain wave that worked! Heck of a job, Tom. And thanks.

Howard & Jane T.

Just a quick note to say that we are beyond thrilled with how the kitchen, bathroom, and garage have turned out.  As Tom knows, from first meeting with us a long time ago, this was a very major investment for us -- and it took us time and sacrifices and stretching to get the finances in order to be able to do it -- but the pay-off is huge and rewarding.  We keep walking into the kitchen tonight, amazed that we get to live in such a beautiful space.  From the design and vision to the execution, everything has been excellent, and the finished product is simply stunning

I'm not sure if you guys know that we never sought out any other bids on this job.  This was against all advice to the contrary.  But we didn't because we just felt so comfortable and in good hands with FG, from the very start, that we couldn't imagine finding that level of trust anywhere else.  And that has carried through in the job itself -- there's nobody I'd rather be having daily updates with than Joe!  At every point, I have appreciated your knowledge and candor and practicality and helpful advice, and nearly encyclopedic memory of this job and this house.  This is an old house with many odd quirks and it's been a pleasure to work on it with a true expert in old homes.  And a really kind one at that.

Sara L.

Following through on what they said they were going to do. There was definitely a level of professionalism that was very much appreciated. When questions were asked, they were answered timely. They also worked hard and tried to work as fast as they could to finish the project.

Steve & Joby T.

I am most satisfied with Forest Glen's willingness to do what it takes to get the job done.

Kirk P. & Peggy B.

I loved the workmen and the foreman, Joe. I never worried about having them in my house. They came everyday as scheduled and cleaned up.

Lisa & Daniel C.

Working with Tom and Joe made this project a successful experience. Adjustments and insightful recommendations were made to address unforeseen issues in a timely manner. Will continue to go to Forest Glen Construction for any home improvement needs.

Tim M.

Very professional, with excellent workmanship. Everyone was friendly, committed to the project, and took an interest in doing a good job.

Larry & Carol K.

We are very pleased with the outcome of our project.

Dave & Sherri M.

I was thrilled working with Tom and Joe. I felt that they understood our intentions (modifying an old house in a way that didn't disrupt the integrity/feel of the house) and their communication was excellent. I loved working with Joe on a day-to-day basis. He is excellent at what he does! We had various subcontractors in and out of our house over the three months of work. All were courteous and pleasant to work with.  They were very transparent about timing and worked as diligently as they could to have the project wrap up on time. In fact, it wrapped quicker than anticipated, which was wonderful!

Carrie & Patrick C.

Forest Glen Construction recently did a complete renovation of my mudroom. They were professional, organized, clean, and the workmanship was second to none. I am thrilled with the final product and would whole heartedly recommend Forest Glen Construction to anyone looking to renovate or build.

 

Jill and Jim O.

We had a great experience working with Forest Glen Construction on our recent kitchen remodel. We were always kept informed throughout our project. Our project manager, Joe, was wonderful to work with. Every time we called or emailed, he answered or called us back right away and always offered good information in order to help us make informed decisions throughout the project. The work is beautiful and we are pleased with the end result. We would definitely use FG again!

Lori & Kevin K.

I was impressed with Forest Glen from beginning to end. They are fair, honest, knowledgeable, kind, and do amazing work. I will use Forest Glen for my future projects. Stuck to our budget and finished ahead of schedule. They are trustworthy and very responsive to all questions and needs.

Sheri & Craig J.

Forest Glen Construction Co was fantastic, professional, and surpassed my expectations.
