DeSalvo Construction has worked with us on two major projects during the past 3 years. Both projects were completed with the utmost of professionalism and care by Tim and his team. The first project was adding an indoor pool to our existing home. We wanted the pool to be not only functional but to have the room based upon a Roman Bath theme. Tim offered ideas to help us achieve everything we were looking for as well as ensure that the room was structured to handle the humidity and heating needs to effectively maintain the pool. Tim took great pride in completing this project and ensuring we had a pool that was easy to maintain and continues to answer questions as they might come up. We often hear from our friends & family that they feel they are visiting a "spa" when they come to visit us.
The second project was a full kitchen remodel. As we began discussions with Tim on ideas for our kitchen he took the time to understand what we were looking to achieve and how we would use the kitchen. He helped to come up with a few alternatives that would achieve the ultimate kitchen. In the end we decided that we would renovate not only the kitchen, but the laundry room and bathroom at the same time. Tim spent many weekends with us picking out cabinets; granite; tile; bathroom fixtures and appliances. He was great about offering recommendations based upon his experience.
The demolition of the existing kitchen was amazing. The first thing the team did was put up barriers to constrain the dust/dirt to the work area only. At the same time they set up a temporary kitchen for us to use during the construction. Through each step of the project Tim would update us on the progress. There were a few times when we asked for changes and Tim was always great about accommodating them. He even took time to template a few versions of a kitchen island so we could get a view of our options. This attention to detail and desire to give us a kitchen we would love sets Tim apart from other contractors. The finished project was another amazing piece of work by Tim and his team. The comments we here from folks as they enter our new kitchen are wonderful! The kitchen has been used for a number of functions now and it works wonderfully for large parties!
Tim's attention to detail, knowledge of his craft, and desire to make everyone happy sets him apart from all other contractors.
On a side note my father/in-law is a retired builder and extremely fussy about quality work. He continues to be impressed with the quality of workmanship that Tim has done on our home and no longer worries about new projects we start as long as we use Tim.Thank you Tim & the entire DeSalvo team for all the great work you have done on our home. We appreciate all your work and commitment to quality. We look forward to our next project together.

"The MacGillivray-Tucker Estate is underway! The project is being managed by Tim DeSalvo of DeSalvo Construction located in Chelmsford, MA. We were truly blessed to find Tim and his crew to do this special project -- complete w/elevator and all ADA handicap accessible! We cannot say enough good things about these guys--extremely professional and the workmanship is amazing! They are taking a very difficulty design to a higher level! The new addition will house Rich, Josh, Bella and of course our dear Grammy Tucker!! It will double the size of the existing structure and include an elevator so that Bella will have complete access to all of the house. Thanks guys for an awesome job--can't wait to see the finished project!"

“Over the years of living in the same location, we have had many different contractors perform work on our home. In the past six years, DeSalvo Construction has remodeled our bedrooms, baths and home offices, as well as, designed and constructed our Natatorium that we enjoy every day. They are the most trustworthy, reliable construction company you will find. The detailed work and craftsmanship are equaled by none and have exceeded our expectations. They came in on budget and met the deadline! Not an easy task today. He has an immense passion for what he does and it manifests through his professionalism and workmanship.
Tim DeSalvo is a visionary and committed to going above and beyond to make his clients extremely pleased with their completed project. We would use them again in the future without hesitation."

“I would guess the fact that we hired Tim to do two major additions for us really says it all! We trust him implicitly…… he does high quality work….he helps with solid and creative ideas…… he communicates clearly, and we were very comfortable having Tim and his team around the house as we were raising our four children.
The first project (Master bedroom addition) was twenty years ago, and I have NEVER had to call Tim back to fix something!
The second project (major kitchen addition) was a complete success. Tim may not be your least expensive option, but he is well worth every extra penny he gets for the value, craftsmanship, peace of mind and happiness with a job well done!
We will be more than happy to meet with you and show you the great and unique work Tim provides."

This was our first experience with DeSalvo Construction. We hired Mike to design and construct a 16X16 reinforced deck for our new outdoor Spa. The deck supports over 4500 lbs. and is beautifully finished with vinyl railings and Azek Composite decking and wrapping.
The main reason I chose DeSalvo Construction is because Mike spent time designing multiple layouts/plans for us and always followed-up when promised. The reasons I would use them again would be their quality workmanship, pricing, willingness to work with us on alterations, and doing what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it. If you want a positive experience before, during, and after your next building project, I'd strongly recommend you speak with Mike at DeSalvo Construction.
