Passarelli Builders just did a large addition on our home (2017) and we were 100% satisfied. They have a great team of carpenters, they are organized and meticulous. The project finished on time and at budget. Tony and Cindy are helpful, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. Amazing and unusual to finish a large renovation and have not one negative thing to say about the builder. They are excellent!

I contracted with Passarelli to re-configure an outdoor deck. They did an excellent job. Their crew was always on time, and cleaned up after each day. It was a small job for them, but Tony and Cindy made sure that the project was completed on time and on budget. I would recommend Passarelli Builders & Design.

Absolutely love Passarelli Builders & Design! They have done two major home renovations for us- the first was a detached garage demolition and construction of a new garage and mud room attached to our house, including new foundation. The second project was a total gutting of our second floor and main floor bathroom and kitchen. Passarelli Builders installed two dormers and rearranged walls on the second floor to give an extra bedroom and as much space as possible. They then worked with us to design and build a beautiful, space conscious kitchen and a modern, gorgeous bathroom. All the finishes are wonderful and Tony is easy to approach if any elements require reworking while in process. Cindy Passarelli's design expertise is a great bonus! Any additional costs were always based upon upgrades chosen by us. Workers arrived every day and were friendly and easy to work with.

Passarelli Builders & Design are my go-to contractor for any of my home projects. They have replaced all my windows and front door, re-built the front steps, and remodeled a bathroom that involved a sliding door and skylight. All projects were done masterfully and almost surgical in nature within an old creaky house that is out of plumb. They do high quality work and I won't hesitate to use them again.

Tony and crew completed a simple project for us, building some storage space in the attic of our old home. They were quick, clean and did excellent work. We will use them again and have recommended them to others.

We’d like to recognize you and your crew for our beautiful Great Room Addition.  We’ve loved the extra space it gives our large family and with the window seats and the openness, it gives us both the ability to hang out together comfortably while maintaining the coziness of an intimate room.   From the fireplace to the exposed beam, from the window seats to the oak floors, we love it.

I know that projects like this are your forte and it shows.  Scheduling was fairly seamless and your subs worked very well together.  Suggestions and design improvements by you and Cynthia, as well as from your crew, made the final project that much better.  And ultimately, you delivered a very high-quality product at a fair price.  And while issues did arise, some unexpectedly, your “bed-side” manner never wavered.  You have the perfect temperament and were always very approachable, responsive and a straight talker.

Thanks again for your hard work in seeing our project through.  It’s transformed our home, updating what was a tired looking 1907 American Four Square into the classic that it once was.  Nice job Tony.
