"Meticulous Quality Honest Realistic These are just a few adjectives I would use to describe our experience with BRJ Builders. We are very pleased with our deck. It is not only beautiful but well constructed in a challenging area of our backyard and aligns perfectly with our pool. BRJ Builders carpenter’s are excellent and all workers at our home were professional. Looking forward to our next project!"

"We hired Ben and his crew to install a slider door at the back of our kitchen and build a deck off of it. We are so thrilled with the final product! The attention to detail of all the finish work both inside and out came together beautifully, and the deck is stunning with the composite railings. Ben and members of his crew were excellent to work with. Ben gave us different options that would work with our budget and he presented us with highly rated, high quality products. The guys on his crew were always courteous, respected our home, and cleaned up after themselves every day. They worked so efficiently and built us a beautiful deck and installed a slider door in our kitchen that helps create an outdoor space that we love! His team also completed their work ahead of schedule and completely within budget, even with additional requests made by us. We will gladly hire BRJ Builders again for any of our future home improvement projects."

"Ben and his crew renovated an entire house for me. They converted a single-family home to a 2 family home. Parts of the project involved converting an old garage into a kitchen and living room, creating an almost entirely new luxury bathroom, building a very large, high quality shed, new siding, and constructing a fence. Ben is a master builder, and he has a great crew. The project included some fine woodwork and custom stairs and trim. He and his crew were also able to select and finish the fine woodwork and paint everything really well. Ben was very energetic in demanding better doors for my project when the supplier delivered subpar doors to us. Ben got them all replaced for me. He was very easy to work with, and comfortable with out-of-the-box creative solutions while still working within the building code. I could always depend on Ben to show up when he said he would, and he is a very hard worker. If you're looking for an honest, capable, and hard-working contractor to make your project a reality, then you should call Ben."

"The BRJ Builders crew was totally efficient and very professional with my exterior repair in early spring 2020. They arrived promptly and left the space better than they found it. The communication and pricing were both excellent. Other small items were pointed out to me that would, later on down the line, be a problem -- and those were handled as well. Staging was set up at my house to do the job right where other contractors would have inefficiently worked off ladders. Ben John is a courteous, experienced, and warm businessperson to whom I, as a 24-year full-time Realtor, feel very comfortable referring clients. There is nothing he has not seen or done and when jobs get tricky or complicated, he will get to the root of the issue and make it right so you never have to face it again. In short, you would be fortunate to get BRJ Builders to come to your property to do any kind of exterior or interior work -- large or small. I just added efficiency and value to my own home because they completed a job and were outstanding in every way."

"I have known Ben for quite a few years now. He painted my house, built a deck off my bedroom, and built a dock and seawall at my riverside home. All were done beautifully, with integrity and attention to detail. So when I bought an old historic home in the center of Hadley, it was, of course, Ben that I went to for help with the renovations. It has been a year-long process. The house was built in 1776, the same year our country became a nation, and I wanted to preserve as much of the original details as possible. The house had survived many economic cycles in its long life, and it needed a great deal of work. Ben was sensitive to my desire to restore as much of it as possible while staying within reasonable bounds of practicality. He helped me to choose what was worth investing in to preserve, and what was just too far gone to be worth the cost. I am happy with the final balance of old and new. Ben's attention to details in the finished work made it very beautiful, and I am proud of the end result. But the vast majority of the work he did, is not even visible to the casual observer. We had to rebuild the foundation, replace ALL the systems, take down three chimneys, insulate everywhere. We had to remove 11 coats of paint from the beautiful stairwell to bring it back to how it looked when first built by the colonial woodworkers. We removed three floors to get down to the original, jacked them to level them where they had settled. Ben replaced original joists that were actual round pine trees! He built decks for alternate egresses and restored a big beautiful old door. The Building Inspector was so impressed by Ben's work and his judgment that he stopped coming to check on it and essentially gave him carte blanche. I am grateful for Ben's expertise no doubt, but also for his aesthetic sense. I am particular about aesthetic details, and turns out that so is he! I am grateful for the care and sensitivity and expertise that he brought to the project. His positive energy is palpable, in every inch of the house."

"We hired BRJ Builders to finish our wooden carport by adding barn doors. They did a great job. We are very pleased with the construction and appearance. Was completed in a couple of days. The cost was reasonable. I definitely would hire them again when we have another project."

"We hired BRJ Builders to replace a two-level deck. The owner Ben was professional, very knowledgeable and attentive throughout the process. His communication and response time was excellent. When the lead carpenter (Josh) and the crew arrived (Bryn, Chris, and Neil) to replace the deck, they were courteous, organized and extremely neat. BRJ Builders is a company that we would call in the future for any remodeling project. We are very pleased with our new deck and we would highly recommend BRJ Builders."
