"When we chose Paino Construction to design and build our new house, we got everything we wanted in a construction company. We were looking for someone who could build a quality house... one that could last 100 years or more. We wanted a builder who cared about the details, especially the ones that wouldn't be seen. We had some rather quirky requests that were met with enthusiasm and creativity. From my very disorganized ideas, Peter Paino designed a plan that addressed our needs as well as our eccentricities." -C.M.
"Once I made the decision to have a new home built, I contacted Peter Paino to determine if he was the architect (and builder) with whom I wanted to work. Before we met he suggested I think about how I wanted to live in order to provide him with some guidance. My requirements included that the home be in a walkable neighborhood, that it be environmentally sound, and that it incorporates as many pieces from the century home I was leaving and was due to be demolished. Further discussion led him to say correctly, that I wished to age in place. The contemporary home his firm designed and built met all of my requirements. Six plus years in, and I am as pleased with it today as the day I moved in!" -I. M.
"Peter and his team are top-notch! They gutted and remodeled our open floor plan, first floor. Peter spent many patient hours listening to our wants and needs, and his team completed the job professionally, and always included us in any final design decisions. We look forward to our next project with them." -C.G.
"Peter and his team designed and built a beautiful forever home for us. He was willing to offer suggestions, but was always more interested in what we wanted. His process with us was not what I would consider fast, but "right" was much more important to us. I hope to live here the rest of my days. I guess my highest praise would be that I recommended my son and daughter-in-law have Peter design and build their next home." -G.L.
"We chose Paino Construction first as an architect, because of their reputation as an established, well-respected company... and because of his (Peter's) willingness to take on our project with government specifications for design and construction (of a wheel-chair accessible house that met our needs and current VA requirements). During the construction phase, as well, we found Peter and his staff to be conscientious and accommodating - willing to answer our never-ending questions, to meet as necessary and to review the project as needed." -J.T.
"We had certain concerns due to the extent of the renovations (made to our home) , including replacing the roof, truss system, all windows, doors, plumbing, wiring, including adding additional square feet to the home... We are amazed that all of the major reworking of the structure so perfectly came together with no problems of any consequence."-M.L.
"My family has been enjoying its new basement over the past few months. It is all that we hoped it would be - a warm, comfortable play and work space. It certainly is due to your listening to what Alberta and I wanted. Just as importantly, it is due to the fine work of your employees and subcontractors. Everyone who worked here in our home was polite, courteous, helpful and answered all of our many questions. Thanks again for your very fine work" -C.B.
"We find condominium living to our liking. Thanks for building us a unique environment." -T.L.
"The visual and physical change that you orchestrated at the rear of our condos has been nothing short of amazing. You converted swamp like acreage into something of aesthetic beauty. You went beyond our expectations and the result has been magical. The neighbors around the pond wish to express our satisfaction, our appreciation and our thanks for your efforts."
