Build in good company with Forest Glen.


In Their Own Words


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
