Featured Reviews for Home Builders in Plainfield, NJ
Distinctive Domain
Home Builders in Plainfield, NJ
"One of the best companies to deal with in the area. In my over 30 years of dealing with builders and subs in the construction field, I would rate them among the top few. In fact if I was going to build myself a new home or make a addition they would be among my top choices."

CMM Custom Homes
Home Builders in Plainfield, NJ
"My husband and I had very high expectations when we went searching for a home builder. We knew that finding the very best company would entail equal doses of technical prowess and empathy. We found both at CMM Construction in Avon-by-the-Sea, NJ. After evaluating the quality and beauty of their work, we challenged them to bring our new home to a breathtaking status. They understood exactly what we meant and never let us down as we advanced our project. They have made this often frustrating journey for many people taking on this task such a pleasant and memorable one for us. And yes, people passing by never fail to stop us to talk about its WOW factor. We couldn"t have asked for more."

Gialluisi Custom Homes
Home Builders in Plainfield, NJ
"Sent this note of thanks to Patrick at Gialluisi back in early 2015... for their work in re-siding our house: Dear Patrick, Many thanks to you and Gialluisi Homes for the splendid work in re-siding our home. Your recommendation to use Hardie shingles and Azek trim was very sound indeed. The materials proved to be beautiful as well as of the highest construction quality and beautiful appearance. You were also always so very responsive to our questions, so efficient and reliable in the scheduling of the work, and so attentive to the management of the work even in its smallest details. Your workers... especially their leader George... proved to be impressively skilled. We were particularly pleased at George's consistently good judgment in taking pains to consult with us and guide us on the various details that needed to be worked out as things went along on site. Unlike some of our past experiences in renovations, we were never surprised and disappointed by some unfortunate liberty a tradesman might take. All in all, we are very, very pleased with the outcome of the project, and we regularly receive compliments on it from passersby, to whom we always recommend you and Gialluisi for their own projects. Thanks again. Robert and Nancy Cirasa 111 Oak Tree Pass Westfield"

"Rosario was professional, knowledgeable, responsive and a pleasure to work with. He was always quick to return an email or phone call. He will certainly be the first person I reach out to on my next project."

Topilow Development
Home Builders in Plainfield, NJ
"Evan is an absolute pleasure to work with. He takes great pride in his job and is completely committed from onset to finish. The end result is a true reflection of his passion for the craft. He makes sure he uses the best teams for the allocated job, and has keen sense of how to manage and coordinate all sides, seamlessly. He listened, put up with my endless requests and suggestions, worked attentively and methodically, gave us a basement that we will cherish for a long time to come. He made it appear like our basement was the only project he was working on, (which certainly wasn't the case)- always there and always ready. Of course we'll use his services again, its a no-brainer!"

RTH Building Company
Home Builders in Plainfield, NJ
"Ryan Hodgson and his team built our new custom home from the ground up. What we feared would be an extremely stressful process was actually more like an HGTV episode that ends with complete satisfaction. Ryan is a true professional that puts his clients 1st before anyone or anything else. One meeting with him, and you'll feel it right away. His professionalism and warm personality doesn't tarnish or fade thru out the process. He is consistant from beginning to end. Ryan is also a true craftsman. He won't do anything unless it's right and to the total satisfaction of the client. He offers suggestions and alternatives or tweaks to original design. He is passionate about what he does and it shows in the results. A past client of Ryan's said to me when I was doing my due diligence, "you'd be crazy not to hire Ryan". I offer you the same advice. Meet with RTH when considering a large project, meet and get to know Ryan Hodgson and his crew. Projects take a long time. They are a journey. There are ups and downs. It can get emotional. However, in the end, you want it to be right, and you want a builder who is on your side offering support and good advice along the way. I'll leave you with one last thought, because it was important to my wife and me. Ryan built our home at the end of a Cul De Sac in a very tight knit neighborhood which is very quiet and peaceful, and new to us. He was respectful of our new neighbors, and the safety of their children. Ryan stayed in constant contact with each neighbor and granted their every request. He was able to complete the project with everyone's feelings, emotions, and sense of peace still completely in tact. As a matter of fact, our neighbors and we invite Ryan and his family to bbq's and social gatherings in the neighborhood, and will continue to do so in the future. And yes, he completed our project a month ahead of schedule. They do it right! All of it!"

Sullivan Building & Design Group
Home Builders in Plainfield, NJ
"Project was a custom home build. Neil Sullivan & his contractors were truly professional throughout all phases of the building project. They provided suggestions & guidance when needed; met all deadlines as promised; were neat & courteous throughout the duration of the project; were very detail-oriented and great problem-solver and proved to be very resourseful. Additionally, after the project was completed, they were readily available for any follow-up issues/questions that arose and they resolved them in a timely manner. The end product was of the highest quality and the process exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend SBD&G."

Prestige Custom Building & Construction, Inc.
Home Builders in Plainfield, NJ
"'As an interior designer with over 20 years of experience doing many multi-million dollar construction and renovation projects, I hired Prestige Custom Building & Construction, Inc. a few years ago to renovate my 1,900 square-foot loft in Long Island City. I had a very positive experience working with Lior, the president of the company. Comparing to other construction companies that I have dealt with in the past, I would put Prestige in the top rank. These are the observations from my experience working with Prestige that sets them above and beyond: • They were very resourceful and helpful during the entire project. Lior spoke his mind, shared ideas from his past experience and made valuable suggestions • They were reliable and dependable by making sure that the workers were on site as scheduled and cleaned up before they left each day • They were very fair and flexible when change orders were required • They were very client oriented as they listened and went out of their way to accommodate my needs • They took pride in their workmanship and did whatever it took to make it look perfect Trini Lam trinidesign.com"

Cassio Builders, LLC
Home Builders in Plainfield, NJ
"As a real estate broker who's expected to provide the highest level of service to his clients, it's imperative that the professionals that I refer them to for their other home selling or purchasing needs (attorneys, loan officers, home inspectors, plumbers, electricians, etc.) also provide the same level of service that they receive from me. In an industry that is inundated with less-than-reputable professionals, it's hard to know who to trust and refer clients to that will treat them with or embody the ideals of honesty, integrity, fair dealing, and with their best interests in mind. Paul and Steven Kurelko of Cassio Builders are two such individuals that I know will treat my home buyer/building clients the way that ought to be. I mention Paul and Steven by name rather than Cassio Builders because, in essence, they are what comprise Cassio Builder. Unlike the large production home-builders where individualized attention and service is lost, these two are on top of their game. Their extensive knowledge and experience not just in construction but also in the world of finance and lending coupled with their professional connections with some of the top construction loan lenders/officers make them an invaluable asset for my clients that are unfamiliar with the home construction process and even for myself. The attention to detail, follow-up, and creativity that each provide - Paul on the financing strategy and Steven on the construction implementation - are very much appreciated by the clients I refer to them. It's all about being hands on and involved with these two and you won't be dealing with some large corporate entity where it's difficult to get in touch with the person in charge. Steven's vision, design sense, and ability to problem solve unforeseen conditions in the field is significantly appreciated by my clients as witnessed during some of the design review and job site meetings that I've been fortunate enough to attend and it's reflected in the overall finished product. While Cassio may not be the largest outfit in town and or have the name recognition some of the well-established builders do, they certainly seem to be well on their way to becoming one of the premier builders in New Jersey and I look forward to sending more clients their way in the future."
