Terravecchia Testimonial

Testimonial from Phyllis Stibler

Dear Joe,

While house projects like mine are never really done, it is time to thank you and your great crew for a wonderful job. I believe we started with a new kitchen sink in April. Two remodeled bathrooms, new exterior siding, trim, windows, some painting, some repairs and a little this and that later…A great case of scope creep!
I am so very happy with the way my 106 year old house looks and so happy with your crew that did the work- You patiently provided advice, budgets, and options and dealt with changes and too much rain with professionalisrn and humor. Your judgment about where to start and stop and your decisions while I was on summer vacations were intuitive and always in my best interests.
Your crew not only did the Cinderella makeover on my house, they took care of my flowers, watered the plants and took in my garbage cans! What can I say but thank you, thank you, thank you. The work is superb and the process as enjoyable as renovations can be.
My sincere appreciation to you, Chris, Scott and so many others. A great job, well done!

Best regards,

Dear Joe:

I want to thank you for the great work that you and your crew did on my house. It’s amazing what real craftsmen can do with an old shack like ours. The quality of workmanship is superb, and we really appreciated your consideration in controlling the dust and debris, and keeping the house livable while the work was going on.

Hope that we can do more things together in the future.

Sincerely,
Doug

Hi Joe,

I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you and your crew for a job well done on the beach house
renovations. I can’t overstate how pleased I am with the final outcome of the project. Honestly I
couldn’t have envisioned the old cottage being transformed into the cozy and welcoming retreat that it
is now. Thank you for your ability to see beyond what was there – what a remarkable transformation!
We look forward to many many relaxing weekends by the ocean enjoying the warmth and character of
the spaces that you and your crew have created. Your design and material suggestions were right on
the money. The beaded fir ceiling and fireplace in the living room are big hits with everyone who
visits. How could I have ever doubted you on the ceiling?!
Give my best to the crew and I’ll be in touch in the spring to discuss the new deck and three season
porch.

Best regards,

Hi Joe.

I wanted to take a few minutes today to thank you for your excellent work on our Portsmouth office building. Beginning with the major renovation that took place in 2007 & 2008 , and continuing each year with up-keep of the improvements, you and your team have been very skilled, artistic and worked tirelessly to render an exquisite, beautiful building – both on the inside and the outside. We constantly receive compliments from people passing through the neighborhood who are very impressed and who photograph our building. From our employees’ point of view, working with you and your crew was actually quite enjoyable. You were all very courteous, polite, helpful and best of all cheerful! From my point of view in administration, managing this project of two-plus years, I really appreciated your responsiveness to all my questions, your assistance with finding and hiring all the necessary craftsmen and vendors, and following up with them to obtain services and materials by the time they were needed, interacting with the planning board and obtaining the permits, and meeting with me to discuss various options for solving the many issues of an old building. I should also mention that your work has always been done timely, per the contracts, with the exact materials promised, and with no requests for “additional service pricing” modifications. We are so pleased with the results! I highly recommend your company to all who ask me about our renovation project. I can’t thank you enough Joe.

Sincerely,
Robin McCallum

Thanks Joe,

Joe Terravecchia restored and did a major amount of work on our 202 year old office building at NH Legal Assistance in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Joe not only did a massive amount of work on the outside of the building, which included, but was not limited to, replacing clapboards and trim, painting, roof replacement and window work, but also remodeled the inside of our office building, moving offices, installing a sky light, moving and remodeling bathrooms, putting up and taking down walls and a huge amount of very intricate work.

Through all the time that Joe was working at my office, he was incredibly professional, very courteous to our needs in the office, extremely friendly and helpful, advising us what we should do and always having the greatest ideas of what would work and what wouldn’t. Everyone in the office literally fell in love with the work he did, his demeanor, his crew and we all very much enjoyed working with such a friendly, personable individual. We valued Joe and his work so much, that several people in our office sought out Joe to do work for them in their own homes. This being a tribute to the man and the work that he does.

Joe continues to work with us at NH Legal Assistance and maintains the upkeep of our building. Because of Joe’s incredible workmanship, we continue to have people stop in our office to tell us how beautiful our building is and people stop by weekly to take pictures of the building.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Joe and his crew and look forward to the times that we will continue to work together in the future.

Sincerely,

Ruth Cartlidge

Dear Joe,

Thank you for all the fine work you have done on my house! I couldn’t be happier with the the new
front entryway and your clapboard and trim work is excellent, all blending seamlessly with the 200
year old original structure – very professional. I’ll call you in the spring to discuss the next project.
Please don’t hesitate to list us as a reference.
