Build in good company with Forest Glen.


In Their Own Words


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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
