How It works
The process starts with a discussion, beginning with your project ideas and requirements. If you’re interested in collaborating with us, we’ll proceed to the preconstruction phase.
In preconstruction we’ll assist in planning the project. We’ll provide cost, schedule, and construction feasibility feedback to help you make informed decisions.
With the plans in hand we’ll nail down the project scope, costs and timeframes. Once the details are agreed upon, our team will get to work building your project.
What Our Clients Say
“We worked with Wells & Company Builders for the renovation of a bathroom in our historic home. Though it may have been considered a small project, it was certainly complicated due to the age and unique challenges our house presented. From the initial consultation to the end of the project, the Wells & Company team demonstrated professionalism, expertise, and attention to detail.
They kept us informed throughout the process, addressing concerns and issues as they came up. The result is a beautifully updated bathroom that blends with original charm of our home. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome and wholeheartedly recommend Wells & Company Builders.”
“Toby’s crew renovated our master bathroom which included removing a bath tub and adjacent enclosed shower and replacing them with a larger shower and linen closet. The job included planning, demolition, plumbing, electrical, framing and tile work. They removed the old tile floor and replaced it with electric radiant heating and upgraded floor tiles. The crew was very considerate and professional at all times and all issues were addressed prior to the completion of the project. The result was a beautiful custom bathroom and very satisfied customers.”
“We had such an excellent experience working with Wells and Company. Prior to hiring Toby and his team I worked with a designer to help me create more of a flow in our 1930 Georgian Colonial home. The layout was challenging and we didn’t want to gut the place. Toby listened and understood the type of space I was wanting to create. We worked as a team and when there were hiccups (this old house most certainly had its share of hiccups..hello original electrical!) Toby and his team were quick to problem solve and not only remedy any issues but also make it even better! Wells and Co renovated our kitchen (took it down to the studs), re-routed plumbing to turn an office into a stunning spa-like ensuite bathroom. We also moved our laundry from the first floor to the second floor, updated electrical and so much more. Toby is trustworthy and very knowledgeable. The finished product is perfection and I just couldn’t be happier.”
“Wells & Company provided top-notch work for our renovation. The quality was impressive, and when a subcontractor’s finish wasn’t up to par, Toby promptly identified it and resolved it. We’re very happy with our home and are glad we picked Toby and his team for the project. Their commitment to excellence really shows.”
“Had a great experience with Wells and Company for multiple projects. Good communication, excellent work from contractor and sub contractors; professional, friendly, knowledgable and honest. Highly recommend and would definitely hire again.”
“Wells and Co Builders are your go to for upscale home remodeling, Toby and his crew can do it all. We have a specific period home built in the 1890’s. It was important that as we made updates, the period aesthetic was maintained as well as provide modern updates to electrical, heating, cooling systems, etc.. many people who visit our home frequently can’t tell the difference where Toby’s work begins and the original detail and character ends. We have hired Toby three times for major renovations projects over the course of 6 years as we took care of a great bit of deferred maintenance.”
“Excellent, skilled work. Handled well some challenges posed by the materials I had acquired in advance.”
“Toby Wells is a contractor better then any I have met. Lots of GCs have the ability to knock down walls, put up boards ect….but very few have the conceptual understanding of the needs of a home like Toby does. We had many conversations regarding the flow of our new kitchen, where cabinets and appliances should be based on high and low traffic areas. The kitchens intended use and basic workflow were validated against design decisions to ensure we made optimal use of space in our 80+ year old home. His quote met with expectations for the size of our remodel; there was not a series of mandatory change orders after that skyrocketed the price. When old style plumbing and sewer were found in the walls, he gave recommendations of what to do with them and left the decision in our hands. To top the entire project off, Toby hit his predicted completion date right on the nose. He predicted two months for an entire kitchen remodel, including removing two load bearing walls, and the project ended exactly at the two month mark. I could not recommend Toby and his crew enough; we are already in discussions about next steps for remodeling our older home.”
