I hired Legacy builders to replace the windows in my home. I am very pleased with my experience. The windows and trim look fantastic. I was kept up-to-date throughout the duration of the project. I would hire them again for any future home project.

Legacy came to my rescue when my home burned. Walked me through everything that needed to be replaced and made some fantastic recommendations on the Re-Build. Offered Excellence in quality and workmanship. Polite and Respectful at all times. Helped me find the fixtures at the best prices. Cleaned up the work better than I would have. Recommended other contractors that would do specialty work that was not part of their contract.

These guys did a classy professional job. Including many extra details that they did not add to the bill. They came in on time and on budget
They provided complete easy to read drawings and suggested some really worthwhile changes to my original ideas They worked very closely with the building inspector to help me double my living space and still meet all the codes. I am very pleased

Frequently asked questions

After an initial interview by phone or email we set up an introductory meeting to review the overall scope of work.  Expectations, design, style, finishes and budget are discussed at this time along with options.  A preliminary estimate would then be prepared and reviewed for a follow-up appt.  

We are multigenerational builders with over 60 years combined experience in land development, new single & multi family construction, home additions, home renovations and remodeling.  We use highly trained employees and licensed subcontractors who are up to date with current trends and municipal codes.  We also offer design consultant plus architectural services. 

We prepare detailed bid notes after initial consultation with customers and forward to respective subcontractors/vendors with drawings and/or architectural plans (if required).  Pricing is broken down into individual line items and material allowances are identified.  An initial preliminary estimate (with options) is submitted for review.  Subsequent pricing adjustments to the scope of work are documented on future estimates in order to keep track of changes/modifications.

We both grew up in the business.  Dan is a 3rd generation home builder and Jim is a licensed tradesman/businessman who has been involved in residential construction his entire life.
