Admittedly we may have been easy to impress, but our architect who had never worked with Bob (Yankee Housewrights) before commented on the quality of the workmanship after each visit to the site. He has become a big fan, recommending them to other clients in the area--they clearly exceeded his expectation as well. We consider ourselves fortunate to have had them build our house for us.

In addition to the quality of workmanship, Bob has been a pleasure in the other aspects of working together. His team is not only very skilled, but highly considerate of other groups working on the grounds (e.g., the landscaping crew), the neighbors, and our family. We would give our highest recommendation to Bob Van Cleef and Yankee Housewrights. They stepped into a project that was off track, got things on a winning path, and have executed to the highest professional standards.

The professional experience we enjoyed working with you on this project was very special to us; you are an outstanding contractor who keeps his commitments and communicates well with a client. The workmanship and solidarity of your men assigned to our repairs was outstanding. Not only are they capable artisans in their professions, but they are “classy gentlemen.

~ Donald

Your building philosophy, attention to detail, first class workmanship and selection of materials have led to many years if great enjoyments, positive comments. low maintenance and a feeling of security during hurricanes/winter storms, realizing we are three hundred feet from the ocean.
