We have used Don Pangburn and his firm on a continuing basis to perform significant restoration, remodeling and preservation of a historically significant post and beam house on a well-known island in Lake Winnipesaukee. The work that has been done includes (but is not limited to) re-roofing, replacement of major structural components, which had decayed over long years, removal and replacement of architecturally correct window systems and exterior features such as decks and railings.
Further, Pangburn did a masterful removal and replacement of a rather famous 80 year old pedestrian bridge, together with the restoration of associated stone work, such that no visual distinction can be made between the old and the new, but the latter now consists of superior materials, assembled with modern techniques that will stand the test of time.
After our home in Meredith NH sufferred extensive water damamge from a faulty plumbing fixture, we contracted with Don Pangburn and his firm to not only repair the damage but to remodel some areas of the house that we wanted to upgrade anyways.
Don is an excellent builder and his firm does work of the highest quality. His team takes pride in their work and they do not cut corners. Don is highly ethical, a most important quality when hiring a general contractor.
Don has an excellent eye for architectural detail and the experience to assist his clients kin making sound decisions in choosing the right design to achieve their goals. He is an excellent bridge beetween the owner and the designer, and facillitates seamless execution of architectural design plans.
Don has a great understanding of the modern mechanical and electrical systems that are featured in today’s homes as well as a strong contact list of qualified subcontractors to ensure that work is performed to a high standard.
Finally Don not only runs a fabulous organization, he works with the crews from framing to finish and micro-manages every detail on site. He uses his years of experience to problem solve and execute to a flawless finish on every project.
I rarely provide recommendations for general contractors but I can recommend Don for any residential project without hesitation. I would furthermore be happy to speak with anyone considering Don’s firm for their new home or remodeling needs.
I have worked with Don Pangburn on several projects and one presently under construction. Let me say first of all that Don and his team do it right, period. Don not only oversees the projects his firm undertakes, but he personally works with the crews during the many phases of construction. This gives the crew his years of insight and sets an expectation on the quality of the work.
Don always asks the right questions related to design decisions so construction issues are usually sorted out prior to commencement.
I highly recommend him for your projects.
I wanted to send you a brief note and convey to you how pleased we are with our new home on Lake Winnipesaukee. The home is magnificent. The Adirondack style and details are exceptional. Having been through construction of our primary home in the recent past with a “spec” type builder, I can tell you the experience was like night and day. The process with you was very collaborative and open. Each time we suggested changes, they were received well and implemented flawlessly.
I have been in the real estate business for 25 years and have dealt with hundreds of contractors. Your work product and work ethic is among the best I have ever seen. Dealing with you brought down the stress level of remotely building a home. Your understanding of technology and communication was very helpful to me to have “eyes” at the job. I also appreciate that any subs or suppliers I suggested, you were able to work with seamlessly and professionally.
The best thing in hiring you, were the ideas you brought to the project from experience. You offered changes to the plan that were so instrumental in making the final product exceed our expectation. Your level of experience and the quality of work you offer, are a tremendous asset to someone that appreciates a unique and individualized home. We plan on owning the home for generations, so workmanship and character are of utmost importance, and you delivered it.
Thanks again and we couldn’t be happier with our home on Lake Winnipesaukee.
