Joe and his team did a superb job of renovating my bathroom in a 1929 vintage building in Cambridge, MA. The final result is modern and highly functional while looking beautiful in an older building. Joe helped me pick materials and finishes that I would not have discovered on my own. He and his team were respectful of my home making sure that there was as little disruption as possible and wore ma...

Joe Bertola is a genius. The quality of work and speed of execution is top notch. It is **** near impossible to find a customer home builder that delivers such a high caliber of professionalism and perfection, with the attention and diligence that Joe does. He does absolutely beautiful work. I have no doubt that the resale value on my home will be significantly higher than the same properties in t...

It was great. We've used them twice now and the owner has highly dependable team. I will work with them again and I highly recommend them. They do a great work and they won't walk away until the job is finish. Joe himself is very involved with the project which is very helpful.

We recently completed an extensive home renovation project in our home in Auburndale, MA. Our house is a Victorian era home built between the eighteen sixties to eighties. We initially hired an architect to design and create plans for all of the projects, followed by interviewing four contractors to perform the work. In part, based on a very positive review from friends who had recently completed ...

I've never been a homeowner before, never mind taken on a major renovation project like this. I had heard all the horror stories about other contractors from friends and family, so I was naturally skeptical when the owner, Joe Bertola, assured me that he would take care of everything. Yet much to my happy surprise, that's exactly what he has done, with deep knowledge of all the trades, an affable,...

The email process over the Angie's List site did not go well, although when I reached out to Joe personally it went much smoother. Joe came out to the site and provided an estimate when he said he would, and I must say that the estimate was broken down very well. The issue we had was that the quote was absolutely ridiculous (borderline robbery, and I have family that has been in this business for ...

Dear Client, I really appreciate your feedback. Like I probably said to you, everything is negotiable. The fact that I had a vision for your project and I gave you a price to execute that vision up to a certain standard and quality does not mean that you were locked into that vision or that price. Perhaps if you see the estimate carefully there are a lot of very generous allowances for the finishe...

It went well! This is the second time we've used Bertola homes, and will use them again to do our kitchen remodel. Joe is more than a contractor, he's a designer! We were not happy with the original architect design, and Joe completely reworked it to give us something that we truely wanted, and gave us more home equity. I feel like he saved us! Super hero Joe (lol). The team is very polite, keep a...

Joe and team made it PERFECT again. Plaster work was masterly. You would never have known it had happened. The team lead communicated with me daily by email and phone. Couldn't really ask for more.

Do yourself a favor and hire Bertola Custom Homes. We recently used Bertola to repair extensive water damage caused by ice dams. Bertola needed to repair and paint ceilings and walls throughout our house as well as exterior decks/stairs. We have hired numerous contractors in the 20 years we've owned our house, and I say without hesitation that Joe Bertola is the best. His quotes are fair and rock ...
