“Choate Builders completed a first floor renovation at our home after he came highly recommended by a neighbor…

Building Trust, One Review at a Time
“Paul Choate and his team completed two projects for us, a deck and a total bathroom renovation. From start to finish on both projects, we were very happy with the results. There was always honest and open communication, with Paul immediately responding to any questions we had. His team was respectful, hard-working and kept the job site clean and tidy at the end of every day. I highly recommend this company.”

“We have gone to Paul and his team for several major projects. He has redone our back deck, our front entrance and walkway, and our master bedroom and master bath and powder room. He is respectful, professional, on time, and a stickler for managing subs and the quality of their work. He has great ideas. If something isn’t necessary, he tells you. We have unique hardwood and he was able to match them perfectly in the room he redid. He’s a great guy. And my cat loves him.”

“We have used Choate Builders multiple times and have always been very happy with the results. Paul's design services are definitely worth the cost. Paul is great at listening to your ideas and turning them into a plan. They did an excellent job for us converting a living room and dining room into an in-law suite, and a previous project updating a master bath suite. The team is honest and reliable. Throughout the project, Paul Choate did a great job communicating status. I highly recommend Choate Builders and would use them again in the future.”

“Paul Choate and his craftsmen have done several ‘old house’ renovation projects for me - porch, pergola, dining room, bathroom, exterior doors, kitchen island, etc. He is an excellent designer who can take any idea or plan to the next level. He has attention to detail and employs experienced craftsmen that he supervises closely to achieve a first class result. I recommend Paul without reservation as the first choice for quality home improvements/expansions.”

“My wife and I have used Choate Builders for 15 years. Paul has completed several projects to beautify our home. Most important, he did a major reconstruction of our sun-room, replacing windows, skylights, door and fan--as well as making the walls and ceiling structurally sound. Everyone who visits our house compliments us on this room!
Paul is friendly, honest and cooperative. He is an excellent communicator. We have complete trust in him and his work.”

“I would highly recommend Choate Builders! We worked with Paul on designing/converting part of our basement/garage into a playroom for our kids. He was professional, detailed, thorough, and meticulous. The quality of the work and craftsmanship was outstanding, the communication from Paul was timely and clear, and the process was smooth and efficient. We could not be happier with the end result and the entire experience. We would love to work with Choate Builders again. Thanks Paul!”
