Charlie Allen Renovations, Inc.
Cambridge contractor


Cambridge remodeling

If you need smart and creative remodeling solutions for your older home, whether itís a stately Victorian or a modest cottage, one room or the whole house, then we want to hear all about it. Please give us a call!

Once we determine that our services and your needs are a good fit, it’s time for a site visit to review the work to be done and propose a range of solutions.  Later, we’ll work with you to identify colors, materials, products, and appliances that fit your budget and renovation goals.  We may meet with an architect or designer to create schematic drawings and construction documents.

We’ll come up with a detailed plan and budget and sign a Construction Contract.  At this point, a Project Manager is assigned to you.  Each Project Manager at Charlie Allen Renovations is a highly skilled carpenter with years of experience in both the trades and project supervision.

Your Project Manager will be on-site every day to make sure that quality work proceeds according to the agreed-upon plan and schedule. He or she will keep you regularly updated and work with you to accommodate changes and resolve any issues that arise. Renovation can be challenging — it’s our job to minimize disruption to your daily life as thoroughly as possible.

At the end of the project we’re confident that you’ll be thrilled by the results.  And our commitment to your peace-of-mind doesn’t end there.  We are always available to answer questions, find solutions, and provide referrals, and hope that you’ll think of us as your go-to contractor and remodeling resource for years to come.
