What folks are saying about Paul Haggett & Co.
“A++ in all areas. Paul and his team are the best– talented craftsmen and super nice guys. Very efficient workers all around. Paul is full of great ideas and so is his team. Paul is great at communicating… responds quickly to texts. He never seems rushed to get to his next job. I can’t say enough good things about the guys Paul brought in to redo our kitchen. Our family actually missed them when the job was over. Our new kitchen is just what we wanted, and even more.”
“Paul and his crew did a great job. They were meticulous and clean and the finished product is great.”
“I started working with Paul Haggett and Company over 3 years ago when I bought my new home. I have hired him to do everything including renovations in the kitchen, installing flooring, windows and doors etc. Paul is easy to work with and is always open to new design ideas and ultimately making his clients happy. Paul’s crew is amazing, they get the job done on time and almost more importantly to me, they always cleaned up after themselves after every workday and would leave my house as clean as when they started. I highly recommend Paul Haggett and Company and plan to continue using Paul for all my renovation projects in the future.”
“We just finished a project with Paul Haggett and company, Paul and his crew were always on time, on budget, always cleaning up and perfectionists about whatever work they did. I will definitely be hiring them to do many more projects in the future. I cannot say enough about how happy I am with the work they did in our new house. I would highly recommend hiring Paul Haggett and Co. A special shout out to Noah, for his creative artistry and becoming both of my dogs best friend.”
“Paul and his team have completed several home projects for us and each time we have been thrilled with the results. His consultative approach, attention to detail and accessibility impressed us from the beginning and we’ve been loyal clients ever since!”
“I am now finishing the last room to be renovated after owning the house for 21 years. For the past 19 years I have relied on Paul Haggett to do all of the work and I couldn’t be happier. Paul is that rare breed of contractor that actually cares about what he does and what his clients want. The work is positively first class. He is always completely honest, trustworthy, attentive and fully responsive as well as incredibly fair with his pricing. Paul is definitely my go to guy.”
It’s my pleasure to write this reference for Paul Haggett and Company. Paul and his associates have completed several projects for us, including the beautiful deck and pergola pictured on his website. That was our largest project with Paul. I had some ideas of what I wanted, but no idea of the detailed decisions I would have to make to be sure that in the end we got exactly the deck we were looking for. Paul and I worked together to come up with the plans, which he was able to draw for a reasonable fee. His plans and artist rendering of the proposed deck enabled us to fly through the process of getting approval from the Historic District Commission. He helped me select the type of wood to use for the decking, what kind of finish to use on it, what kind of post top and balusters to use, and even made lighting suggestions. While he is the first to admit that he isn’t likely to be the lowest bid, he was always sensitive to our limited budget and there were no after the fact surprises.
With Paul you get what you pay for. He is a craftsman with enormous pride in the quality of his work. This is reflected in every job he has done for us. He takes no shortcuts. After our deck was built we were entertaining one evening. One of our guests suddenly asked “who built this deck?” It was kind of an unusual question in the middle of catching up on the days boating activities. I told him Haggett and Company, and asked why he wanted to know. He told me he had built a deck on his own home and knew what was entailed. He couldn’t believe that the edges on every plank in the deck floor had been hand sanded smooth and rounded. He marveled at the pattern of nail angles. I don’t know much about nail angles, but our guest promised us ours will last a century the way it was built.
It is also important when you have an old house (ours was built in the 1870’s) that you work with people who understand and respect old houses. I’ve hired carpenters who say they can only do a job if they tear everything old out and start from scratch. Paul will always discuss the pro’s and con’s first of keeping or discarding the older features in a home. He used 2 old porch pillars we found in our barn as the main supports for the pergola he built on our deck. This really gives it charm and helps blend the new with the old.
Some of the other jobs Paul has done for us include sizing and hanging wooden combination doors, installing a railing from the first to the third floor, and installing windows (as long as they can be installed from the inside!). We are always very impressed with how neat Paul and his associates are on the job, cleaning up at the end of each days work, making sure there are no surprise flat tires from discarded nails.
But one of the real perks to hiring Haggett & Company is that Paul and the people he brings to each job are just plain nice people to have around!
