Evryone comments on the remarkable transformation. Franklin and his team were always on time, professionally turned out and so courteous and polite. They carried out all work to the highest standard.

I have had several projects with Franklin as an experienced contractor. He has corrected work that was performed in less than professional mannerism by others. He has taken action on my investment projects in a timely and efficient manner. The results of the work are above my expectations. The level of communication with Franklin has been well above the normal standards.

Franklin did a splendid job during the final vital stages of my new house construction where he installed all the trim, doors, built-ins, fire surrounds, etc. Although I had an idea of what I wanted, Franklin used his knowledge, design skills and experience to develop the details and put it all together in a very timely manner. I was very pleased with the result which never fails to produce favorable comments from my house guests. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Franklin and his team did an amazing job on our press box at Bristol Eastern High Shool. He was prompt and professional. His workmanship was top notch and never cut any corners. He gave us his professional opinion on a few matters that were extremely helpful. He was very accommodating to not only our tight schedule but also our tight budget. We’d recommend Franklin and Leykamsh Construction to anyone who needed a project both large and small.

TESTIMONIAL FROM THE OWNERS OF MAJOR RENOVATION PROJECT

I completely renovated a six story, 150 year old brownstone apartment building, converting it to two high-end condominiums.  After having interviewed several local contractors, I hired Franklin Aguayo to both manage my project and provide carpentry and other finish services.  This was an extensive project that literally took the building down to the brick walls and floor joists.  I hired Franklin for this job because unlike most of the people pitching me on their services, I had worked with him before and knew he was honest, incredibly dedicated and that he wanted the best for me and my family as we planned our new home.

Franklin managed every aspect of the project including:

Franklin successfully coordinated the work of multiple sub-contractors and successfully navigated the thicket of regulations and environmental laws that govern any construction project in Boston.  He worked tirelessly 12 hours a day to oversee everything, and to keep work on track.  His team was excellent and extremely hard working.  We were tremendously pleased with the results of the renovation.  We have a dream city residence on 3.5 floors that wins complements from everyone we know.

We sold the condo that was on the bottom two floors to the first person who saw it for a price that at the time represented a record price per square foot $100 (10%) higher than any previous sale for our neighborhood in Boston.  Boston realtors were drooling over the quality of the construction which was much better than that provided on many other neighboring renovations managed by other Boston contractors.

I recommend Franklin and Leykamsh without reservation.

Best,
J.
