Byggmeister Associates, Inc

Byggmeister (Scandinavian for "master builder") was founded in 1983. From the beginning the company has focused on architect-designed residential renovations in and around Boston. We have always placed a high priority on cultivating two things: easy, friendly relations with our clients, and a talented and diverse crew. After years of gradual evolution toward the concept, in 2000 Byggmeister started offering design-build services, and within two years we were both designing and building 90 percent of our projects.

Scope of Work We do a full range of improvement projects, primarily on single-family homes and, occasionally, in condominiums and apartments. Typical jobs include kitchen and bathroom renovations, attic and basement conversions, additions, decks and porches, whole-house renovations, and landscaping. More and more we are called upon to do significant energy upgrades in houses-sophisticated insulation, air-sealing, and lighting upgrades-work which we find particularly important.

We display two types of written homeowner feedback on GuildQuality member profile pages: Comments and Reviews.

Comments

Reviews

Reviews are different than comments. These are star ratings that homeowners ask us to publish, and they come with a written description of the type of experience they had working with their contractor. We publish all of the reviews we receive: positive and negative alike.

roof vents placed behind 4ft walls in finished attic dont do squat for ventilation. no place for soffit vents, siding is asbestos so gable vents too pricey.

If the space behind the knee wall is clear from end to end and you install gable end vents at each end then that would keep the eaves from freezing and causing ice dams.Make sure the knee wall is well ... read more
