Client Testimonials

"Colonial Homes have built two homes for us now and we would not want to imagine the process without them.

From start to finish and beyond, they genuinely care about taking care of their clients and go the extra mile in every aspect of the experience. They were always so attentive to questions and concerns that came up and it gave us a sense of peace to be in good hands."

"Now that I have settled into my new house, I want to let Colonial Homes know I am delighted with my new home.

From the beginning of the development stage all the way through construction and afterwards, I felt that my home was your number one priority. All of my questions and concerns received your prompt response. The attention to detail and commitment to quality truly shows off in my home. I found your subcontractors and on-site workers courteous, helpful and proud of their craftsmanship.

Once again, I extend my thanks to all the people at Colonial Homes for making my homebuilding experience a pleasurable one."

- Carilyn Brown

"For over a decade we worked to remodel our beloved lake home never being able to land with a builder or architect who could preserve what mattered to us or understand what we wanted.

Colonial Homes came highly recommended to us by friends, and we have not been disappointed. From the moment we met with them a deep connection was established with the generations of their family who have worked with such integrity. Colonial listened to what we dreamed about, connected us with an architect who could make sense of it all on paper, and patiently worked with us though the process helping us retain the old while adding the new. The room additions flow so seamlessly that one would hardly know where the old stops and the new begins. Their word was good concerning a finish time, and we happily moved into our cottage for the summer season. Trust was established early on with all of their workers. It was a joy to have them labor in our home! And their aftercare is amazing, as well. Eighteen months out they remain readily available to advise or help us concerning any nuances of care for our home. We are deeply grateful for the lovely spaces they helped us create that will serve our family for generations to come."

"From our initial meeting with Colonial Homes, we knew it was a good fit!

They have always been very willing to make sure we were satisfied no matter how small our request might have been. And if the situation turned out to be more of a challenge, they stuck with it until it was right.

They have always been reliable. Their follow-up on the construction process, no matter how small of a detail, has always been very prompt and thorough. We love our home and are very proud to say Larry Delagrange and his team built it. They are not just our contractor, they have become our friends.

If we were ever to build again there is no question in our minds that we would go to Colonial Homes. They are fantastic people and wonderful to work with. The only regret we have now is our home is finished and we miss seeing them."

- Jerry and Paula Schmidt

"Working with Chad and Nate Delagrange was a pleasure.

Our calls and concerns were handled quickly and efficiently and they were always present when the trades people showed up to do the work. We had the feeling that if we had a concern, it was addressed and communicated to the trades."

"As a single person the enormity of building a home could be daunting. I knew exactly what I wanted and dreamed of in my home.

Colonial Homes made my dream come true. Not a person walks into my home without commenting about the beautiful details and quality throughout. It’s truly a 'WOW' home.

Everyone from the framers to the finish carpenters couldn’t have been easier to work with. I had a file full of pictures from magazines that I collected. The poor trim carpenters had their work cut out for them for I had very definite trim details in mind. I could not be any happier with my home. They truly exceeded my expectations. "

- Sandi Wilkinson

"During the recent build of our new home, Colonial Homes could not be more professional.

Ron Girardot, the salesperson at the model home, helped us in choosing the style of home we wanted for the cost we could afford. Larry, Joyce, Chad, and Nate Delagrange patiently helped us in each of their specialties through the actual construction. Then when our home was nearing completion, John Hoffman’s attention to detail was wonderful. He took the time for all the details to make our home complete.

Having had bad experiences with other builders in the past, it was a relief when this construction progressed pleasantly. No build is completely trouble free, but if a problem came up they were ready to fix it, or find a solution for it.

Home construction is also a constant decision-making process and they provided us with various options to consider and were patient with all our phone calls. They also completed the construction in a timely manner. This was a relief, considering we had a time element to meet in moving. Any issues that popped up after we moved in were also dealt with quickly and to our satisfaction.

Colonial Homes helped us build a beautiful quality home within our budget. We highly recommend them. "

- Tony and Peggy Restivo

“We remodeled the entire first floor of our home in 2021. A friend recommended we contact Colonial Homes and we connected with Chad.

Chad was really easy to work with and very patient with all the questions we had. We are extremely pleased with Colonial Homes. They brought in top notch crews and everything exceeded our expectations. The work was all done while we stayed in our home and additionally 2 of us were working from home during the entire remodel. The crews were well coordinated and very accommodating to us being there. We feel fortunate to have connected with Colonial Homes and I would highly recommend them.”

- John & Brenda Weber

“Chad Delagrange of colonial homes completed a major addition and remodeling of my lake home during fall, winter, and spring of 2019-20.

Chad and his staff were very professional when planning and corresponding with me, and I was very pleased with the quality of their work and the entire finished product. I trusted Chad to do the work while I was vacationing in Florida for most of the build , trusting him completely with our home. His pricing was not the lowest, but was competitive and most importantly, I was happy with the results. I would highly recommend Chad and his company to any one planning to build or remodel a home.”
