Charlie Allen Renovations, Inc.
9 Reviews
For more than four decades, Charlie Allen Renovations has been remodeling and restoring homes in the Greater Boston area. In that time, we’ve accumulated numerous awards and recognition, including 15 Cambridge and Somerville Preservation Awards, 5 Contractor of the Year awards, Boston Magazine’s Best of Boston, Remodeling Magazine’s Remodeler of the Month, Boston Globe Magazine’s Bathroom of the Year, and more.

But more importantly, we’ve achieved the wishes and dreams of scores of area homeowners. Every year, a large percentage of our business comes from referrals, and it’s the recommendation of these former clients that is the greatest validation for both our work and for our process, which many find unusual at the beginning.

At Charlie Allen Renovations, we put a lot of emphasis on the planning stage of every project. We don’t rush onto a job site and start demolition. Instead, we spend a good amount of time working closely with our clients to ensure that our plans perfectly address their needs, that we’ve considered and addressed potential issues, that we’ve explored innovative solutions and unexpected products and materials, and that we’ve developed a fixed-price contract that is realistic and eliminates surprises. This can be challenging for homeowners who want to get moving right away, but ultimately, it’s the most efficient method for achieving a successful renovation, completed on-time and on-budget.

Charlie Allen Renovations is an award-winning Residential General Contractor with a unique two-step process. We begin with a comprehensive and collaborative development and pre-construction program designed to ensure a successful project, billed at an hourly rate. Once we've accomplished a mutually satisfactory plan, we draft a fixed price scope of work with fixed pricing for construction.
