“I have worked with the New England Design and Construction team for over a decade on projects ranging from full house renovation to a pool cabana. I can say they are genuine craftsmen, dedicated to their clients, and have great design sense. Their design-build philosophy positions the firm to guide homeowners through the entirety of the renovation process, making it fun and as stress-free as they can. From the very first whisp of a design idea to the final brush stroke of paint, NEDC is on top of it.”
