Removed and re-set a basement window that no longer fit properly in the opening. Removed six -panel wooden doors that no longer closed. Doors were trimmed, stained in the trimmed areas, then replaced. Additional work needed to be performed on one of the door frames so the door would stay closed.
I was very pleased! Very professional. I felt comfortable with the owner. I know my job was the largest - but he said he would help. The Black Bear employee arrived on time on the appointed day - and went to work. I had to head to work and when I arrived home the project had been completed. Everything was clean, and in order. The doors closed - and the basement window had been re-set and caulked - and looked great! Owner Stuart Cleaveland contacted me the next day and asked if he could come and check out the work. I was impressed. He also brought along a new door stop and installed it for me. And I so appreciated Black Bear's honesty. When I received the invoice for the work -it was for a less amount than the bid. Stuart explained it was because the project didn't take as long as he had anticipated. Needless to say - I don't think that happens very often.
I know Black Bear specializes in larger projects - so I really appreciated their willingness to do my project. And it was so well done.
I would hire them again!

After several tests confirmed the presence of radon in our home, we entrusted the mitigation project to Stuart Cleaveland of Black Bear Builders. Stuart is knowledgeable in this area and he advised us of several options to handle the mitigation. Stuart is honest and fair and we are very pleased with the results of his services. We would wholeheartedly recommend Black Bear Builders for radon mitigation.

Radon detection and mitigation.
I can't say enough good things about Stuart and Black Bear Builders.

Stuart was able to detect and mitigate the radon levels in our home. He was able to explain everything thoroughly and the work was done promptly and efficiently.

Although Black Bear Builders was a little bit higher on the quotes than other service providers, I feel we got an exceptional value for our money. I trust Stuart in my home when I'm not there and I trust his expertise.

He has also in the past, redone a kitchen and bathroom for me. He was also able to work with our insurance provider on two occasions.

Mikal K.

Performed radon level testing (following our own testing that revealed higher levels) - and subsequently installed a remediation system
Flawlessly. Prior to doing anything - the entire process was thoroughly explained. What was explained was exactly what was done. Everything was done in a very timely manner. There was NOTHING for me to clean-up after. Best of all work was done outside and I specifically requested that a small patch of plants - right smack where the ladder needed to be - not be disturbed.. and it was NOT disturbed. I really appreciate that our home and yard were treated respectfully.

Kitchen cabinet replacement and floor repair
Stuart worked with us to come up with great solutions to fix our water damaged kitchen. There were a few issues as there are in any project, but he resolved everything to make sure we were happy and kitchen looked great!

Installed large dog door w/dual flaps on side of house lower level. Installed new storm door.
Stuart did an exceptional job. Very professional and came prepared! I will definitely be being contacting him again. He also built a 2ft x 2ft x 5" high riser for the outside wall for the dog door. This was so the inside/outside transition through the dog door would be level. This was at NO COST to me. - Nice Touch! If you want an honest, hardworking professional, you can't go wrong with Black Bear Builders.

Everything was fine. He had to buy a special attachment to fasten the cement to the railing.
