Dear Jim and Crew,
Mike and I would l like to thank you for the wonderful job you did on our house.  You made this addition/renovation a quick and painless process.  When we were looking for a contractor, you were the first to get back to us and the first to provide an estimate.  You were able to work within our budget and you gave us some excellent ideas that we would have never thought of ourselves.

Our house looks better than we ever imagined it would.  We absolutely love the amazing wainscoting and the trim work you did around the doorways.  It makes such a huge difference. Not only do you do excellent work, your crew does as well. We were very impressed by the tiling job that was done in the master bathroom.  When I get ready in my bathroom, I feel like I am in a spa. You turned our house into our dream home and we probably will never have to move.

The entire renovation process went off without a hitch. You were on schedule and finished the job on time which was extremely important to us.  We never thought a job this huge could have been completed so quickly.  You were on top of everything the entire time. Your crew was at our house by 7:30 A.M. every single day for 3 ½ months and always worked a full day.  You and your crew were just wonderful the whole time!

Thank you so much!

Amy and Mike Siljanoski

Dear Jimmy,

Just a note to tell you how pleased we are with the renovations of our guest room and walk in closet.  We are truly enjoying the additional space and commend you and your craftsmen for giving us this extra room.  Opening up the attic and making one large room out of two very small bedrooms has made such a difference at our home.

Working with you was a pleasure and your workers always left the site neat and clean.  Their workmanship was exceptional. 

Thanks again for a great total renovation!

We have employed Severino Construction Company on many occasions.  Most notably to build our new garage a few years ago.  I couldn’t be happier with the results.  When I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted in the garage construction Mr. Severino made some excellent suggestions that worked out wonderfully.  On every occasion I have found Severino Construction Co. and its employees to be capable, efficient and helpful. 

When I need work done, Severino Construction is my first choice!

Jimmy and Crew:

We just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work.  When we first met, we were impressed with your company.  When we decided to contract you, we were hopeful that we made a good choice.  When you finished our project, we knew that we could not have made a better choice in our contractor. 

You and your crew not only made our dreams come true, but you finished the project in record time.  Each one of your crew members brings with them a special talent and each of those talents show in our home today.  We always knew that you were just a phone call away and that you were eager to please and work with us on this project.  We know that our home is well built and we plan to live here for many years to come. 

Without you we would have not finished this enormous project in a short amount of time and for that we are forever grateful!

When we decided to put an addition onto our house the first order of business was to select a contractor. We interviewed four home improvement contractors and we found J. Severino Construction was the best value.  Jim Severino took the time to listen to the plans we had for our house and gave us some excellent advice and ideas long before we signed a contract.

Once our decision was made, it was time to review the contract. Jim explained each step and what was required of us as well as what he was going to be responsible for. He gave us a real time estimate of how long the project would last (he told us he would be finished in November and he was completely done the beginning of November as stated), where he was going to start and the order of progression. We had work done in almost every room of our home. Jim worked with us (not for us) to plan the work around our lives.

He put in a master bedroom and bath over our garage, moved interior walls , replaced every window, installed central A/C, upgraded the electric service, added a deck (and recommended some excellent decking material)and sided the entire house. He did all this while we lived in the house.

Jim's work was fast, precise, and clean. I have done some home improvements myself and Jim's attention to detail is outstanding. When it comes to framing he is second to none. The proof of this came this past March, four years afiter our first addition, when a massive tree fell from our neighbor's yard (2 houses away) onto our house. It knocked a seven foot by three foot hole in the side wall of my son's bedroom, 3 holes in the roof and various other damage.   Jim's work around the windows was the only part that did not move or show any signs of damage.

The night the tree fell, we knew exactly who we needed to fix our problem, J. Severino Construction. I called Jim that night and he was at my house early the next morning, which happened to be Sunday to inspect the house to ensure it was safe and to determine what he needed to do to protect us from further damage and the elements. His crew showed up the next day as soon as the tree was removed and put up tarps, plywood and tar paper on the roof and walls to keep out the weather etc...

Jim walked us through the whole repair/rebuild process. He made himself available when the insurance adjuster made his inspection. Jim did the walk around with the adjuster to ensure the repairs Jim saw were the same as this adjuster noted in his report.

Jim has now finished the repairs and our second addition ahead of the anticipated schedule. We now have an awesome den and my son has a bedroom most adults would want as a master bedroom.

To sum it up, Jim Severino not only has my recommendation but my gratitude. There is no other contractor I would have work in my home.
