“We missed having them around when the project was finished.”

We like it when new clients ask us for references. Our past customers are the best marketing resource we have and they are eager to share the positive experiences theyʼve had working with Emslie Building and Remodeling.

Emslie Building & Remodeling exceeded our expectations!! We are extremely pleased with the results and with the entire construction process. Dave Emslie’s personal involvement in the design and planning significantly improved our original concept, saved us money, and in general produced a result that was better than we had hoped. Dave’s involvement in the design and then the actual construction really made things go well. We recommend you involve Dave as early as possible in the planning. We were particularly pleased at how well Dave worked with us during the construction. This occurred over the Christmas holidays, and Dave worked flawlessly with us so that we were always able to use our house the way we wanted to throughout the construction period. Dave and his people, in our opinion, went “above and beyond” what was expected to make this both a great result and a great experience. We very strongly recommend Emslie Remodeling. If you would like a contractor that will spend time with you start to finish in order to get it the way you want it, Dave Emslie is the person for you.

Emslie Building & Remodeling is among the very best Contracting businesses in the Metro Boston area. I am an architect and I have worked with them on projects large and small for clients and for my own home. Always careful. Always thoughtful. Always a great product. I tell clients that if you want a contractor that you are happy to share your home with during construction, then Emslie is the builder for you. And if you want someone who has good design judgement, they are also perfect for your job.

Emslie Building & Remodeling did an outstanding job on our project. From start to finish, Dave Emslie was a pleasure to deal with. He was honest and reasonable with regard to pricing and the payment schedule. He provided creative solutions when site conditions presented unforeseen obstacles. He also made valuable recommendations to improve our design. Dave was on site every day, whether he was doing specific work himself or overseeing work by his employees or subcontractors. He was meticulous in protecting our carpeting, floors, and stairwell and in cleaning up at the end of each day. Not surprisingly, Dave and his team exercised great care in executing each element of demolition and construction to minimize disruption and to produce first class work product. We were particularly impressed with the quality of the carpentry and tile work. Dave’s attention to detail and sheer craftsmanship really paid off and garnered many compliments from our family and friends. If you want a builder who is trustworthy, reliable, easy to interact with, and committed to quality, then you want Dave Emslie. If I need help with any future projects, large or small, I will definitely want to hire Emslie Building & Remodeling.

Dave Emslie and his sons did a renovation/addition for us, and before that did a master bathroom for us. Our family chose to stay in the house during construction. All through, Dave and his sons were respectful, honest, responsive, kind, thoughtful–really a joy to have around! The subcontractors they hired were fine and did good work. Dave took time to do really fine work while making sure we were surviving the construction well. We missed having them here when they were done!

We used Emslie Building & Remodeling for four different jobs: two interior remodeling, one new construction of a garage, one deck replacement and window replacement. In every case we were thrilled with the work. We felt that the work was of excellent quality, performed on time and to our specifications. The Emslies are a pleasure to work with and their suggestions for improvements were always appropriate and helpful. Every task they performed has stood the test of time and made our lives more comfortable and enjoyable. One job that is easy to describe was the construction of a garage. After we had drawings done they took over the construction from tear down to finish and did a terrific job. The new structure matches the house perfectly and matches our needs as well. There was one small hitch in the location of an outside wall (due to set-back limitations) and Dave Emslie worked with all parties concerned to take care of the problem in a manner that was approved by the city. This alone would make us life-long fans of the company.

Dave Emslie was referred by an architect friend for whom he had done extensive work beautifully. Emslie Building & Remodeling has replaced parts of our 100 year old 5000 sq. ft. house three times over the past three years. Dave gave us an estimate and arranged a schedule. He met the schedule and price. His son Andy is a master craftsman. They quietly and methodically did the work. They gave additional value in knowing materials and sending us in the right direction for windows that would resemble the 100 year old ones. They were able to design small cabinets to fit under our hearth that were a challenge for our master cabinetmaker. I felt comfortable giving them a key and allowing them to work in the house when we were away. I liked having them around and enjoy their quiet wisdom.

Emslie Building & Remodeling converted the third floor of my 19th century home, and later built a magnificent addition with a modern kitchen,spacious living/family room, and a contemporary bathroom. They provided a very rewarding and positive experience throughout. Dave Emslie is absolutely knowledgeable of his craft, paying attention to every detail from the first nail to the final painting. He is honest, sincere and completely aware of his clients needs. From the beginning to the end of the projects, he always kept us informed with the progress, time and direction. Dave has a positive disposition and a wonderful personality. As a Classical Musician, I must say “Bravissimo” to Dave Emslie. I would highly recommend Emslie Building & Remodeling to anyone.
