We hired 5th Generation Contracting to renovate the main living space of our home including our kitchen. We were impressed from the initial meeting all the way to the final walk-through. The thoughtful approach to finding out the reasons behind our renovation allowed the design team to make budget conscious suggestions to meet our needs. Our project manager’s daily email updates made sure we were all on the same page and knew exactly what happened each day and what was planned for the rest of the week. We appreciate our project manager’s calm demeanor and patience in answering all of our questions and concerns promptly. The construction quality is of the highest standards and the meticulous finishing is impeccable. We absolutely love the transformation of our living space and kitchen and couldn’t be happier.

Professional. Reliable. Detail-oriented. These are the first traits that come to mind when describing 5th Generation, but they certainly don't tell the whole story. 5th Generation is simply the best. Customer service is at the core of everything they do, from initial meetings to the punch list. Every staff member is knowledgeable in his or her specific area of expertise. Their subcontractors are carefully chosen for their skills and reliability. During 2017, 5th Generation completed two projects for us -- one planned (a covered backyard porch and stone terrace) and one unplanned (a three-story water disaster). Both were done on time and with complete satisfaction.

We met Wayne and his son in law this week. A very professional team. They have a thoughtful approach to improvement projects while balancing budget. We're really looking forward to getting started and working with their design teams.

I first used 5th Generation when a large oak tree caused major damage to our home. A friend recommended them to me. I loved working with Melissa, Wayne and Bob. They handled everything with the insurance company and did a fantastic job on the house. Melissa and I talked almost daily so I always knew exactly what was going on. We had a skylight that was not cracked, but Melissa was concerned that it was structurally weakened because the tree hit very close to it. When the insurance company balked at covering this, Melissa went to bat for me and ultimately got the insurance company to pay. It was a pleasure working with them.
We have used 5th Generation 2 other times since and I would strongly recommend them to anyone needing work done on their home. When I need home renovations or repairs in the future, I’ll be calling them again.

A Letter from Our Owner

When you are planning a home improvement or renovation project, or when you are upgrading commercial property, you have many options when it comes to choosing a contractor. It can be quite confusing as you try to determine which company has the right skills and experience to do the job correctly.
