“We had a wonderful experience working with Pat to create a new laundry room on the second floor of our Victorian house. He was easy to communicate with, incredibly detail-oriented, and very respectful of our home. Having watched Pat and his team complete a thorough renovation of a neighbor’s house, we knew he is a skilled craftsman who does very high quality work. For our smaller project, Pat was not just a contractor but also a willing design consultant whose input was always appreciated. Whether your job is big or small, you can trust that it will be done right with PLD.”

Greg & Colleen T. – Sudbury, Massachusetts

“During the winter of 2011-2012, we had ice dams that allowed water to infiltrate into our townhouse condominium at Mahoney Farms, Sudbury, MA. Our unit sustained significant water damage in four areas, all outfitted with elaborate molding details, two of these in high-ceiling areas. Remediation involved removing trim work, drywall, and all wet insulation. PLD Construction and Remodeling replaced the insulation, installed and skim coated GWB, re-installed all trim work, and painted. All work was done within the time we had planned. Clean-up was amazing, so that there was no evidence that this much work had been done, it all looked the way it did before the damage.

We would highly recommend PLD for any building project, and are certain that your clients would be more than pleased. Many thanks for such fine work.”

Bobby Q. – Waltham, Massachusetts

” Patrick has been our family’s go-to residential contractor for years given his expertise not only on larger-scale projects – new floors and kitchen remodeling – but also on more custom, carpentry-related tasks – window seats, cabinetry and built-ins. In my view, his knowledge of both process and new products on the market, as well as his honesty, attention to detail, and thorough, up-front budgeting are refreshing and unparalleled, particularly in an industry riddled with delays and ultimate cost overruns. We would not hesitate to recommend Patrick to our closest family and friends. “

Sue & David – Belmont, Massachusetts

” Pat has worked with us several times — renovating our basement and our kitchen, and adding a screen porch to our home. He does a fantastic job and is very easy to communicate with. However, our most significant project with Pat was in almost entirely rebuilding our vacation home in RI. Pat went above and beyond to ensure that the end result was beautiful, well built, and a true (and happy) collaboration between us, Pat, and our architect. We have highly recommended Pat to many of our friends and colleagues. We wouldn’t entrust any of our projects to anyone else! “

Gino – Boston, Massachusetts

” I’d like to take a minute to comment on the quality and timeliness of the work that I recently had done on my property in Boston by PLD Construction. Not only did this company come in at the quoted price, the quality of the workmanship and materials used were far beyond expectations. This was a total renovation of an older unit in Boston’s North End and it required extensive replacement of electrical service, plumbing and insulation. The overall value of this property was increased far above expectations and I would not hesitate to recommend this company to do any work which required attention to detail, professional communication and cleanliness of operation during the entire process. “

Maurice & Michelle – Chatham, Massachusetts

” Once again, Maurice and I want to extend our sincere thanks for the outstanding work you completed at our home in Chatham. Your knowledge, skill, professionalism and attention to detail created for us a beautiful, new kitchen – on time and within budget! You can be sure we will be calling on PLD Construction and Remodeling in the future for further home improvement projects. Thanks again for a job well done. “

Scott – Easton, Massachusetts

” I cannot thank you enough for your courteous, professionalism, and absolutely great job you did on our mud room addition to the house. You were very patient listening to Ann and my wishes and then not only heard and asked questions, but helped us make important decisions for the project’s outcome. Everything went seamlessly, you really delivered everything when you said you would. I remember a snag (what job doesn’t have one), when the subcontractor electrician you hired didn’t show, you didn’t stop working and kept calling specialists and other electricians until you got one and got the job back on schedule!! Ann and I were not only impressed, but very grateful – no one wants to be in the middle of a job and waiting for someone to come and do their part so the job can be completely correctly and on time. Pat, you called on us after and checked on us regularly to make sure everything was holding up. We were so happy and grateful. The last jobs were the replacement of the boys bedroom doors and frames. Not only did you help get the job done before our guests arrived, you even helped put a quick coat of paint on to make it look presentable – both of us realized you are not a painter, but were again so grateful for your kind effort and gesture. Thank you for you professionalism, skill, and care. “

Ron & Debbie – Newton, Massachusetts

” We have worked with many contractors over the past 20 years as we continued to expand our small cape into something much more. However, Patrick Dugan, who completed our most recent and challenging renovation in August 2012, was by far the best contractor with whom we have worked. From our point of view, the key element in the contractor / home owner relationship is trust – trust that the work will be of high quality, trust that the work will be completed in a timely manner, trust that there will be a high level of professionalism, communication, honesty and respect, and trust that even when the work is completed, the relationship will continue so that any matters that have to be addressed will be even after the final payment has been made. In all of these areas and many more, Patrick earned and continues to have our trust. In addition, Patrick brought to the project a level of design input and a keen sense of style, layout and visual appreciation that created an end result that was more than set forth in the architect’s plans and far in excess of what we anticipated. We continue to appreciate the quality of the work and the added touches that came from Patrick’s mind and hands.

Patrick kept copious and extraordinarily neat notes (sometimes written on an unfinished wall) that were a work of art in and of itself.

Patrick is the real deal! He clearly loves what he does and assembled a group of workers and subcontractors who each reflected Patrick’s high level of commitment and quality of work.

Perhaps the greatest compliments that we can give are that, without hesitation, qualification or reservation, we would and do recommend Patrick to all of our friends who are undertaking home renovations and we definitely would use Patrick for our future projects. “
