"Proved to be the ultimate professional service firm as they exceeded all expectations to ensure that the project was completed in time, in budget and within the specified scope of work. In this particular project we had the added complexity that the main decision maker resides out of the country, and they were incredibly patient and flexible in working through that hurdle, completing the project to our outmost satisfaction." Roberto Litwak, Director International Operations
"When we decided to do a major remodel of our home we were obviously worried about choosing a contractor. We had heard and read about all the terrible things that can befall a homeowner going through a project. We interviewed lots of contractors and found that most were very focused on their having us understand how the billing was going to work. Others were focused on grandiose plans and improvements to our design that, as we learned later, would have cost us many thousands of dollars more. When we interviewed Tommy, it was very clear from the outset that: First, he himself knew how to build. Second, he had a realistic understanding of costs and steered us away from making serious mistakes. The other element that turned out to be crucial was that the use very few sub-contractors. Once underway, his crew came every day at 7AM. They were respectful, tidy, and easy to work with. Our neighbors all commented how impressed they were with the good order with which they conducted themselves." Dr. Melissa and Daniel Kahn

Your workers were most courteous, and concerned with our every need. We have had guests over for many events at the house, and they have remarked on the excellence of the carpentry and granite work. The cabinets, granite counters and new appliances really accent our kitchen. The custom solarium off the master bedroom shows your expertise in construction. We will be happy to recommend your services to our friends." Beverly and Bruce Gladstone
"I would like to extend this letter of recommendation in respect to the services provided by TNT Simmonds. The scope of the project included the building of a second home. I feel incredibly lucky that I was introduced to them. Not only did they completely guide me through the entire building and billing process (as this was my first time building), but they were always so willing to help and explain everything to me no matter how big or how small. I felt so well taken care of! I was always well informed each step of the way, and felt like they had my best interest at heart. During the course of the project, if there were items that needed reworking, they were clearly addressed in a timely fashion and always exceeded my expectations. I am incredibly happy with my new home and am so proud to show it off!" Jill Korengold

A year ago at this time we were living in the middle of a demolition and construction project that resulted with a new second story and two new bedrooms and a bath. Not only did you complete the work on time and on schedule, but also it looks like it was always here! In fact, many visitors have told us that they were sure we had always had a second story..."
