It isn't very often that you deal with a contractor and can enjoy a peaceful night's sleep. So many contractors can sell you a bill of goods, do the job, only to never be heard from again. It has happened to me more times than I can count throughout the years. Jim Del Prete, the owner of Beantown Home Improvement, is a stand-up guy. He is what we growing up in Boston used to call "a straight shooter." We had our whole house's natural wood shingles replaced with Certainteed Polymer shingles (the 5 inch straight-edged kind) with the half-round shingles on one dormer. We also had 3 basement windows, a basement door, a porthole window, and 2 skylights replaced, all with composite material. The individuals that work for Jim are so hard-working. They came during light rain, cold wind, and a few super-hot days. They never complained and showed up every morning at around 8A and left in the late afternoon. If we found something that we didn't understand or that bothered us, Jim answered our texts and emails almost immediately. I sometimes called (not often) and Jim picked up his cell right away. The biggest take-away is that Jim is responsive to the nth degree. As I stated in the beginning - no sleepless nights. But I want to tell you the best part. My husband served honorably in the U.S. Marine Corp. What a pleasure to find out that Jim honors our nation's veterans in the most tangible of ways. He doesn't say "thank you for your service" he says "I will take 20% off the bill as my gratitude for your service." What do you think about that? So, you will be dealing with an honorable and obviously patriortic American who values you as a customer and a person who has served our country. The cost of the job is competitive, but don't be fooled by a lower bid. You want the best materials with a knowledgeable crew. And - Jim comes back. If you notice a few very minor things, they are fixed promptly, even after the final payment is made. The contract states a third down, a third when the crew shows up, and a third when the crew is competely finished. Like I said, don't worry if you find something later, it will get fixed. This is nothing for Beantown to come back, and he takes the worry away from you. Jim will be able to furnish us as a reference if you want to chat about our experience. We didn't know it at the time, but 2 of our neighbors had already hired him. I sought out a 5 star rated contractor from Home Advisor. Now, the house looks inviting and I have his sign still up on my lawn.Several neighbors have been over to take a look and ask a ton of questions. It is my belief that Jim should hear from a few soon. We are people who want to relax now after years of hard work and not have to paint or touch the outside of the house. We just can't be thinking about maintenance anymore and this was just the solution for us. Do yourself a favor. Call Jim. Ask him dozens of questions. Take the first step into a hassle-free experience. And remember, fear not. Jim will not desert you - from the beginning, middle,end or after. He will respond to you in a considerate, respectful manner.

Review by in Raynham, MA
I canà ¢à  à  t speak to what anyone else may consider important when deciding to hire a particular company over another to perform work on their home. For us, ità ¢à  à  s peace of mind. We want to know that the work being performed is done by someone who is dedicated, knowledgeable, who takes pride in their service. We want someone who does whatà ¢à  à  s right, doesnà ¢à  à  t à ¢à  à  cut cornersà ¢à  à  , and doesnà ¢à  à  t try to cheap out to save a dime. If these sound like important qualities to you, then look no further than Beantown Home Improvements. We knew from the start that we needed a lot of work done to our house. It was no longer possible to ignore the drafty original construction windows. Likewise, the faded/rotting clap board and trim were a real eyesore. We were becoming à ¢à  à  that houseà ¢à  à  in the neighborhood. We desperately wanted these flaws remedied, but we just couldnà ¢à  à  t seem to find someone who we trusted to hire. That all changed when Jim DelPrete from Beantown Home Improvements came to take a look. Jimà ¢à  à  s knowledge, dedication, and integrity are immediately evident the second you meet him. This is a guy who knows what it means to be a home owner, and appreciates how nerve racking the home improvement process can be. We had hired other home improvement companies for various projects in the past, and really were left with nothing but headaches and unsatisfactory work. This was not the case with Beantown Home Improvements. In fact, when Jim came to perform his initial estimate, he noted that the window sill on our picture window was rotted through, and that water was getting in. He went to his truck, retrieved a couple of tubes of à ¢à  à  Geocelà ¢à  à  and sealed the leaks to buy us some time. I remember thanking him when he got down from the ladder. He simply stated, à ¢à  à  It just wouldnà ¢à  à  t feel right leaving that window like that. This only cost me maybe $10.00, but it can hopefully save you guys a lot more.à ¢à  à  FYI, Jim was the 4th person we had to the house that looked at that same window for an estimate. That gesture was more than enough to show me that Beantown Home Improvements could provide us with the peace of mind we sought. And, Ià ¢à  à  m happy to say that they delivered. Together, Jim helped us develop a plan to ensure our house would be efficient, virtually maintenance free, and looking beautiful for years to come. The work performed consisted of 18 replacement windows, a brand new custom picture window, vinyl siding, new trim, new gutters, and much more. Jimà ¢à  à  s work crews are a reflection of himself. Each and every person working for him was polite, productive, and took pride in their work. It was a pleasure to have these guys around, and watching them work was amazing. Our house has been transformed, and we finally have the dream home we always wanted. Now, instead of being à ¢à  à  that houseà ¢à  à  in a negative light, we stand out as à ¢à  à  that houseà ¢à  à  in the positive. We are so grateful that we hired Beantown Home Improvements, and Ià ¢à  à  m confident that we arenà ¢à  à  t the only ones saying that after hiring them!

We had a whole house vinyl siding and window installation. They did such a phenomenal job!! Jim is very responsive and Janice is so helpful. Jim’s team for windows, siding, gutters and electrical work is very professional from start to finish. Their quality and workmanship is top of the line . Our house turned to be such a beautiful looking home. Highly recommend!
Response by Beantown Home Improvements, Inc.: Thank you so much for taking to write this review. Your house certainly looks night and day different and I'm glad we could make this transformation for you!

Very professional and meticulous. My old Roto skylight was replaced with a new Velux S06 solar skylight. I would highly recommend this company for any type of home improvement. They impressed me with their work so much I also hired them to replace my backyard deck.
Response by Beantown Home Improvements, Inc.: Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. You will LOVE your new Velux skylight and we shall see you soon to refresh your deck!

After a winter of storms and blown-away shingles, we needed a new roof. We found Beantown Home Improvements on here and hired them based on past reviews. We have not been disappointed. They are very reliable and organized which I greatly appreciate. Jim explained the process and the materials that would be used right from the outset. This thoroughness set them apart. The roof was completed on time and it looks great. We have got several compliments . I would fully recommend hiring this company.
Response by Beantown Home Improvements, Inc.: Thank you John for taking the time to write this review. One of the things I have always noticed that many contractors fall short on aside from communication is explaining the process to the homeowner. It's truly so important that the homeowners knows exactly how the process will run to set expectations. Hopefully we can be of assistance again in the future.

Review by in Canton, MA
We had our roof replaced by Beantown. This is the 3rd time we’ve hired them, and as usual, we are super happy with the results. Jim is very easy to deal with; responsive, knowledgeable, and so organized. The roofing crew showed up on time, communicated with me throughout the day, and finished on schedule. Most important, we trust that the work was done correctly. I highly recommend Beantown and will hire them again in the future.
Response by Beantown Home Improvements, Inc.: Thank you once again for taking the time Stephanie to write a review on your experience with us for others to see and as always it was a pleasure working with you!

Review by in Norwood, MA
I needed some significant work done on my roof. I had several companies come by my home and offer estimates. The company I was most satisfied and felt comfortable with was Beantown Home Improvements. The owner, Jim, came by my house after his answering service called and emailed me the day before to confirm my appointment (several companies did not do this and one even pulled a no show no call). Upon meeting Jim I was extremely happy with his professionalism and honesty. His constantly calling me “sir” was impressive and went over big in my book. I explained what was wrong with my roof and he went over several options and materials. He came back with an estimate and after taking everything into account, I decided to go with Beantown. After I sent the contract and deposit in, they quickly obtained a permit and scheduled work on my home. They came and finished my roof in a day. The foreman on the scene, Dan, was also very personable and explained to me everything that was being done. When the project was finished, Jim emailed me pictures of the finished work and I was extremely satisfied. There are bigger roofing companies out there you could go with, but if I were you, I would give Beantown Home Improvements a shot. Jim is a solid dude. Respectfully Submitted, L. Stead
Response by Beantown Home Improvements, Inc.: Hello Loren and thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. It can be frustrating for sure when companies make a commitment to show up and then they never do or even call. Never makes any sense to me. I'm thrilled that everything came out and well as you had hoped and look forward to assisting you again in the future.

Review by in Lakeville, MA
Finishing the basement was always on our “to do list” ever since my wife and I built the house 3 years ago. We wanted the basement to have the same design flow as the main house while still being functional and practical. I always wanted a dedicated area for a movie theater while my wife required space to entertain guests and wanted to add another full bathroom. Beantown Home Improvements was one of the five general contractors we reached out to bid on the basement remodeling project. From the very beginning, Jim DelPrete (Owner) of Beantown Home Improvements stood out from his peers in terms of being courteous, respectful, overall speed of responses, detailed/well written proposal, and willingness to work with the customer. He genuinely took interest in our ideas, gave honest and constructive feedback on what may or may not work. Not once did he shy away from revising the initial proposal as the scope of the project changed based on our discussions. In fact, by the time we signed off on the contact, Jim was already on version 4 of the proposal. Once the work started, he kept us appraised on what to expect every week, and demonstrated excellent project management skills. From Day 1, Jim worked hand and hand with his crew, who undoubtedly share his excellent values. With any project, there is always a possibility of last minute changes. Given the fact that I’m very particular about how things turn out in the end, not once did Jim push back on my inquiries, or let my silly questions impact his overall demeanor. He would always respond to my texts, calls, or emails promptly. Jim handled this project in a very creative manner, and had an eye for perfection. I’ll let the before and after pictures speak for themselves. I will hire Jim and his team again in the future for all home improvement projects. Hands down, he sets the benchmark high for the competition.
Response by Beantown Home Improvements, Inc.: Thank you So much for you review. You were a pleasure to work with and I am glad that we were able to hit all of the details to make this a truly wonderful experience and beautiful final project.
