I just got my bathroom remodeled by Bella, and I continue to enjoy it every single day, as well as my children. The tub is finally big enough for the kids to pretend "swim" in, and we thank Tom for suggesting to go with the bigger tub to suite our family needs. If you are a parent, you know how tough bathtime can be, and ever since the guidance I got from Tom and the project manager, bath time with the kids has been so pleasant. The functionality of my bathroom now is just amazing, I have space in the double vanity we got, I have space in the linen closet we got, I have shower in coves (tiled) for all our shampoos and such (which now the kids cant get to). The workmanship from this company and their carpenters is just impeccable. Any issue we came across, they handled immediately and with perfection. There was just one small issue with tile date arrival (partly my fault for picking special order tile), but Tom was able to get the girls in the office to research and track down my tile so there was absolutely NO delay! I was very impressed with everyones work ethic from start to finish. The finish is great and we are so happy. If you want your bathroom done in a timely manner, with all the great design details and functionality for your family, then contact these guys. I kid you not, it was such a pleasure! Thank you to Tom, Eric, and all the staff at Bella!

Lorenc Construction
It's difficult to find a good contractor- either someone recommends one or you look in the telephone book and take your chances, or nowadays on the internet. I selected Lorenc based on the favorable reviews I had read online. After the latest snowstorm I had water leaking down through the roof and through my kitchen ceiling and into the basement. Lorenc came out fully prepared to go up on my 3rd story roof and he did. He was able to tell me what the problem was and what was needed to correct it. This is a very knowledgeable man when it comes to houses and construction. Lorenc and his team of workers were true gentleman and respectful of us and our property. They were careful to cover things with plastic, laid tarps on the floor because of the snow and ice, cleaned up after each phase of the job. The roof and gutter system were repaired, interior walls/ceiling were repaired and painted, basement wall- beautiful.As I said- it is difficult to find a good contractor- and I know one when I find him. Lorenc is a gem and I will have him do any construction /renovation work that is needed here in the future. Trust me- this guy is good!

Bella Brothers Construction
I'm back again! Although this is my first time leaving a review for Bella!!! I have had both my kitchen and bathroom remodeled by Tom and Bella Brothers. I have nothing but great things to say about this company. I was so happy I decided to call Bella, the girls are so sweet in the office and very accommodating. Tom was prompt on all his appointments scheduled with me, and kept in touch throughout all my remodels (both kitchen and bathroom renovations). I was really scared I was going to be out of the loop and not understand what was going on during construction, but the men were so nice to explain things to me, and their processes. I'm sure I was a pain, but they never showed it on their faces :) I chose to have Bella remodel my bathroom after my kitchen because of their diligence while working on my kitchen. I couldnt imagine a better company to tackle such big jobs for me. so thank you again guys and look forward to that basement renovations we've been discussing! Sincerely,Melisssa!!!

A.R. Sinclair General Contracting
Before I listed my house in Fairmount for sale, I hired AR Sinclair General Contracting and Building (aka ARS GCB). Adam first arrived for our estimate appointment promptly. He made audio notes and also took pictures for reference. I had a itemized estimate within 24 hours. I decided to hire his company because of past referrals and how easily accessible he was. From Day 1, him and his team arrived on time. The renovations ranged from minor work like touch up painting, fixing knobs to major work including a new down spout and gutter system, drywalling, and basement drylocking. At the end of each day, the team cleaned up well. Adam did well to notify me of any changes or problems. What stood out for me the most was his dedication and attention to detail. There was no mediocrity with his work. His "doing his best work" attitude was unexpected in a contractor. If you're looking for a general contractor that is experienced, has a trusted team and is reasonable in price, consider ARS GCB.

Mr Contractor Inc
We called the company out for an additional bedroom we wanted to build. The man that came over, Ken, was not looking at my old space but envisioning the finished room. He knew exactly what needed to be done in every part of the floor it's on and spent time answering any questions we had. He never made us feel like we were bothersome with our inexperience and many questions about colors and closets and electricity. The job was done from beginning to end with every specification nothing less than perfection! Ken and Mr. Contractor is not just a construction, painting, slapping together a room type of business. At. All! Ken is an artist in his own right seeing beauty and potential where there are old spaces in need of renewal. Thank you for everything Mr. Contractor! Especially the way you treated our family. You're a class act a all the way! 5 STARS!

A.R. Sinclair General Contracting
I am a real estate agent and A.R. Sinclair (Adam) has done work both in my home and for my clients. His work is truly reliable and exceptional in a field of contractors that can be filled with unpredictability . In addition to that, and perhaps more importantly, Adam was able to have a thorough, intelligent, and informed conversation about the work and the process before we even began. His initial estimate took into account all aspects of the work: structural, aesthetic, timeframe, cleanup, price. And the finished product was beyond our hopes. I know that my clients have had similar experiences as well. If you are looking for high quality work from a contractor that appreciates detailed thought and execution, A.R. Sinclair is your man.

I had a leak in my apartment that caused damage to the ceiling drywall and two light fixtures. It was a relatively small job so getting a contractor to give me an estimate and do the work in a timely manner was tough. Adam was quick to respond to my phone call and showed up on time for the estimate (a big improvement over many other contractors I dealt with). The work itself was done quickly and the quality is top notch. Adam updated me regularly and kept to the original budget and timeline. I have no reservations in recommending Adam and his team.

Lorenc Construction
We contracted Lorenc to remodel our bathroom based on the comments here and are very pleased with his work. Lorenc is reliable, considerate and hardworking. A perfectionist. The remodeling included tearing up old tiles and concrete, and installing a tub, shower fixtures, sinks, vanity and lights. Lorenc also provided an access panel to the plumbing, painted the bathroom and corrected uneven studs in the wall. He’s a skilled craftsman who takes a pride in his work. We highly recommend Lorenc and will hire him again for future projects.

Lorenc Construction
Lorenc is an experienced contractor who is professional and knows what he is doing. He takes great pride in his work. I had the pleasure of meeting with Lorenc while trying to sell my home. We were pressed for time and with a long list of things to fix for the sale to happen. He took the list and said not to worry. He worked independantlygetting everything done in a few days. He was very fair with his prices. I would recommend Lorenc to anyone looking for any type of home remodeling. This guy does it all......
Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.

Just a moment...
