I have had Norway Built do 2 major remodeling projects in my home and both experiences were done to my visions or close to what I wanted. Some were just not feasible some were upgraded after discussion with Bob. He never treated me as if I didn't know what I was talking about. His whole crew were courteous and helpful. Many times Bob suggested an alternative that was better suited for my needs. He was always cost conscious and I felt I could trust his opinion all the time. I have recommended him to others for his superb workmanship. Family and friends can't believe the transformation of my 60 year old home to this 21st century!

Finding out that my damaged 3 season roof could not be replaced, it was repaired instead. Zach set up a meeting to discuss my options. Very professional and honest recommendations. The roof was repaired and the technician did an excellent job. Thank you.

Great team and Craftsmanship. Above and beyond!! No worries on returning calls and even explaining the little details as they wrote the book on this. I went to them for my hardwood flooring, roof, basement and looking forward to one day a dream kitchen.

"Recently we found Norway Built to complete our full basement. They did a fantastic job using newest materials. The crew was very professional and neat. Work was completed per plans and specifications. Building permit got approved with flying colors! We have since been using Norway Built for other projects. Great contractor and a happy customer."​
"I spoke to a lot of basement remodeling companies and the conversations always felt so impersonal; they were your basic sales pitches with the required quick decision to lock in their inflated prices. Norway Built, was just the opposite. Bob Ligmanowski, the owner scheduled an at-home meeting with me to go over my ideas regarding the basement remodeling. We discussed my budget and targeted start date for the project. Bob listened to my concerns, he made suggestions that were more cost-effective and yet gave me the finished look I wanted. He made sure we were compliant with the building and remodeling codes outlined my town's Dept. Building Division. Norway Built provided us with a good faith estimate of the project to review and payment options, we chose the one that was right for me. Once we finally decide to proceed with the project and had signed the contract, the remodeling began. We requested that the remodeling of the basement be broken up into 3 phases, so they provide us with a detailed description of what would be delivered during each phase and the expected delivery date. At the conclusion of each phase, we rendered payment and they would begin the next phase. This payment schedule worked great for us. The Contractors that worked on our basement remodeling project were nice, friendly and courteous. They always arrived on time and finished on time each day. They cleaned up after themselves each day and at the conclusion of the remodeling they made sure all the building debris and any dust that had found its way onto covered items was cleaned off. The Office staff always checked in with us to make sure everything was going okay and to see if we had any concerns, they also very courteous, and responsive to any questions we either same day or within 24 hours. This was our first remodeling experience and it went smoothly; we plan to use Norway Built to remodel our kitchen. We would recommend them to family and friends. Thanks guys, for a job well done."

I have used Norway on numerous projects in the past and am always impressed with their work. I thought about writing this review today because I was talking to someone last evening who had visited my homes and he remarked that every one he entered he noticed and appreciated the design, the quality and the attention to detail. They are the best!

Norway Builders made the whole experience of remodeling our home an easy and pleasant experience. Their ideas and expertise were needed in this process and they exceeded my expectations. They were very timely in all of their deadlines and the project was completed when promised. They were an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend them to any family looking to take on a home project whether is be a remodel or tear down.

Bob and his crew were very professional. I got exactly what I contracted for. The fit of the tile and the wood work were both excellent. They respected the age of my house (1880s) and did the trim in a manner consistent with the style and age of my house. I will be hiring them again because their price was competitive, the work was beautifully done, and they communicated with me throughout the project.

Norway Built has performed small and large jobs for us since 2008. Great quality work, dependable and reliable. To name a few jobs, Complete roofing, exterior and interior housepainting, complete bathrooms, flooring, flood damage and repairs, etc. They make every effort to provide amazing quality work at the most reasonable cost. Feel fortunate knowing them. Very pleased with Norway Built.

Norway built our house in 2000. Since then, we hire Norway and only Norway for all of our home improvement projects, big and small. Norway just completed a three season room for us. It is just stunning, and it includes some wonderful little tweaks that we never would have even thought of. Norway always makes sure that their work causes as little disruption as possible, going so far as to put mulch down around the three season room to keep our dog out of the mud! We have complete trust and confidence in Norway's professionalism and thoughtfulness. Norway is always on time, on budget, and always keeps us fully informed along the way. It's like they are working on their own house.

Norway Builders provided a major addition to our home. He is professional, works well with subcontractors, listen well, solves difficult renovation issues, very honest and his costs are reasonable. I liked his work so much I now use him exclusively for all future projects.
A year ago this week, Norway started an entire first floor renovation of our home. We built it in the late 1980's and it was overdue for a complete facelift. Norway Builders came highly recommended; friends had used Bob for a first floor renovation of their home and the results were breathtaking. This was comprehensive renovation; everything was removed from the first floor living space, all the floors were torn out, walls and windows were moved, structural supports introduced, a laundry room was moved, etc. Through it all Bob and Norway were there offering encouragement and guidance. Norway maintains a great network of professionals such that everything from the kitchen layout and cabinet design to the lighting plans, material choices, windows and finishes were in the hands of individuals that cared about the client and the finished project. We were even able to leverage his contacts to literally save thousands of dollars on the cost of appliances. Any renovation has its ups and downs, there is always an element of drama. When you open up a wall you never know what you will find. Our project was no different. Bob and his team always reassured us that there was nothing they hadn't seen before and solved each surprise with confidence and professionalism. Did it take longer than we expected? Of course, (we ran about a month over) but the delays that occurred were generally were the result of unexpected lead times, the temporary unavailability of materials, etc. So, would I recommend Norway? Absolutely. In fact Bob is currently remodeling my brother's home!
