    We're repeat customers of G.F. Sprague. This time, Paul replaced four basement windows in our old 1920's home. He was excellent. It was a tough job, but he didn't rush and did it right, fixing problems instead of covering them up (rotted wood, etc.). He even painted the new wood without us having to ask. You guys rock!

    Paul was a great supervisor. He worked well with his crew and all worked really hard. They showed excellent craftsmanship on the chimney, copper edge, etc. All was painted over to show no sign of recent construction.

    Ralph kept us informed of the good and not so good as this job progressed -- excellent communication. Paul did an extraordinary job on the flat front roof-very neat.

    Paul is a gem. He's a talented carpenter as well as a great contractor supervising everyone and paying attention to every detail. The house looks beautiful and the entire huge job was surprisingly stress free for us. The office staff were responsive when I needed to get in touch or to find out about something. The workers were enthusiastic and showed so much pride in their work! Thanks so much!

    Paul was able to do the work on a Saturday (2 Saturdays!), which was extremely helpful as it didn't effect all the tenants during the work week. Aesthetically, the work is excellent.

    Customer Testimonial

              My husband and I want you to know how impressed we have been with Paul Whalen. From the very outset when he found out unexpectedly that we needed all new decking all over the roof and that would cost us so much more and require at least one more week of work, he was incredibly sympathetic and supportive. He has been entirely professional, attentive to our concerns, informative when we asked him loads of questions, and very generous about the time he took to help me understand what they were doing and how they would do it. Each time I wanted to talk to him, he would come down from the roof, which is very high up, and it meant that he needed to take quite a bit of time and energy out of the hard day's work to speak to me directly. As if that wasn't enough, he would make sure that I had his cell phone number and no matter when i called him, he called me back promptly and was as gracious as ever. Paul is the best. He made sure they cleaned up beautifully at the end of the day and he was always cheerful and eager to please us. Paul is a rare, wonderful professional and an exceedingly fine person. We felt very lucky to have him as our foreman on this huge job.
