We love hearing from our clients!

Howie and Lil Bernstein says:

If you are looking for a contractor, you should stop looking!! Chris Gallagher is a one of a kind contractor. He is a craftsman who truly takes pride in his work. My husband and I never had to oversee his work, as he was his own critic. If he did not like the way something looked, or matched up, he changed it! His insight and knowledge of his craft is second to none. There was not a moment that we felt stressed or concerned as we were extremely confident in Chris’ abilities and his attention to detail. He provided us with helpful suggestions, and addressed and solved any minor problems that came about. Chris was reliable as he always arrived when expected. In addition, he was extremely conscientious of the “timing” of each part of our project and was committed to every aspect. He was easy to talk to, extremely patient and always provided any explanations needed. Chris is also extremely trustworthy and treats your home with the same respect and consideration he would of his own. We actually enjoyed his company and will miss his daily presence. There are not enough acclimates for Chris, his craftsmanship or his work ethic. Words cannot describe how pleased we were that we chose him. We have and will continue to recommend Chris. We know if we ever need a contractor in the future, the selection process is over……Chris is the one for us and should be the one for you!


The Sillat Family Huntington says:

My name is Janine Sillat. My husband, Michael and I hired C. P. Gallagher Construction in November of 2014 to build a 1300 square foot addition to our 2,700 square foot home. The addition included a new living space, mudroom, and a master bedroom suite which included two large walk-in closets and a 120 square foot bathroom. A laundry room was also added along with a renovation to the upstairs and down stairs guest baths and existing office space.

 From the beginning of the process, Mr. Gallagher was very flexible. We were able to negotiate a very fair contract that was comfortable for us as the home owners and Chris as the builder. Chris’ timeline was reasonable, and we understood completely that timelines and surprises with renovations occur.

 Chris’ crew began work toward the middle of December in 2014 and worked nonstop in brutally cold conditions in order to complete the framing before the worst part of the winter set in. He and his men showed up on time, every day, not just during the framing, but until the completion of the job. Chris even visited the site several times in the middle of the night to make sure there were no leaks into the home during heavy rains and they were completely committed to finishing the job as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality.

 Chris worked well with our architect, with whom he was not familiar. They developed a mutual respect for one another which was extremely helpful for us monetarily as the architect did not feel the need to “babysit” the job and charge us hourly for their time. 

 Throughout the process, Chris went above and beyond just adding to our home. He consistently helped with the little things, like picking up fixtures, getting light bulbs, fixing small needed repairs we found along the way, even going so far as to come and change the battery of a smoke detector on a high ceiling months after the was already completed when I asked why it might be beeping intermittently. Chris’ wife was even nice enough to obtain some material for us when no one else was available to go. She was kind enough to take an hour round trip to facilitate the building of our home.

 Chris also worked well with the town, making appointments for inspections and complying with all town stipulations. Chris, and his wife, went to the town several times for us when it would have been very easy to leave the responsibility to us, the home owners. Being very sensitive to our work and family situation, they went above and beyond to make sure that we had the complete paper work and that everything was in order. 

 Communication was also not an issue with C. P. Gallagher Construction. Chris answered emails, texts, and phone calls promptly, even late at night. Even now, with the job way in the past, Chris is available to answer questions and follow up on any details we have asked of him.

 Chris and his men also showed tremendous respect for our animals. They made sure that they were safe during construction and did not get outside when it was safer for them to be in. As pet owners, it was important for us that we know the people working in our house are good to our animals when we are not home.

 In all, I whole-heartedly recommend Chris Gallagher and his construction team as a General Contractor for any home improvement project. People are stunned when we tell them we had zero issues with our contractor. Chris is honest, fair, and reasonable. His work is of good quality, and our home looks beautiful. When you hear nightmare stories about shady builders and fly-by-night workers, it has been a huge pleasure and relief to go through this process with someone who really cared about our needs and making our vision a reality. Chris and his team will not disappoint you.


Rebecca A Byrnes says:

Hire CP Gallagher Construction! There is no other contractor more professional, more capable and more invested in your project than Chris and his crew. I work in the Architecture field and have never had as pleasant of an experience as I had with Chris. Chris was able to renovate our old house on deadline while keeping the quality exceptional. When we were ready to renovate our kitchen and finish our basement it was a given that Chris would perform the work. He worked with us on every detail and was committed from the start till he came back to install the last knob. My mother and stepfather, my aunt and my in laws have all used him on multiple projects and have always been ecstatic with the results. He is honest and forthright and always goes the extra mile to make sure your project is done correctly, on time and with the highest quality. Chris is the contractor of choice.


I.S. says:

Gallagher Construction is excellent! They completed a whole house reconstruction for us and we are very happy with the work. They are very courteous and perfectionists and on the job the whole time!


Susan Keller says:

I would definitely recommend CP Gallagher Construction. I am very happy with their work. We had an addition built which included a dining room, bedroom, bathroom and family room. They are very reliable and did a great job. They are easy to work with and very detailed oriented. They made sure everything was done right and were on top of everything.


Tina Carpenito says:

CP Gallagher Construction did just a terrific job! They built an in-law apartment for us that included a bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen. It was amazing what they did. I can't say enough about Chris Gallagher. He is reliable and honest, and worked rain or shine. If there was a problem, you knew his team would deal with it. They are a pleasure to work with. There wasn't one day they didn't show up. They're just great!


F. Santotas says:

It was refreshing to find someone like Gallagher Construction who gave us an estimate and stayed till the job was done. We are completely happy with the work and would recommend them to anyone.


Dee says:

I can't thank you enough for helping Bucky, Skip and myself out to get us back in our house. You are such a GREAT GUY! Thanks again and see you soon. Also you have two great guys working for you. Thanks again.


A&J Owens says:

We want to thank you for doing such an outstanding job with our great room. We were very happy with you and your crew. The construction was unobstrusive, which means a lot when you have small children. Our job was done on time and on budget as promised. We appreciate that you are always available for questions we had, and we have already recommended CP Gallagher to several of our friends and neighbors.


Steve Russell says:

We interviewed and considered many contractors before deciding on C.P. Gallagher Construction. Chris is thorough, fair, and responsible. He is exceptionally honest and completely above-board. Unlike (some contractors), Chris doesn't guess or wish or exaggerate, but strives for accuracy and fairness. He sets high standards for himself and demands similar standards from his workers and subcontractors. My wife and I are very impressed by his workmanship and attention to detail. I highly recommend Chris Gallagher for home improvements from the simple to the complex.


Edward Moran says:

Thank you very much for the excellent job that you and your employees recently did on my house. My house looks brand new, inside and out! Family, friends, and neighbors keep complimenting me on the beautiful transformation that has taken place here in such a short time—thanks to you! You and your employees displayed the highest degree of honesty, dependability, courtesy and craftsmanship at all times. The worth of my house has increased considerably. I would enthusiastically recommend your services to all other people who would like to make an investment in the comfort and value of their homes. Thanks again!


Steve Beinhorn says:

Just a quick note thanking you for the quality work you did in renovating my basement. What a difference! My wife and I also appreciate the fact that you delivered the job in the time frame you promised and that there were 'no surprises; throughout the process. You, your team, as well as all your sub contractors were neat and professional every day they were at the house and made what could have been a stressful project into an easy undertaking for our family.


Rose Marie and Thomas Swartwood says:

We first used Chris Gallagher when we moved into our home back in 1998. He did such a terrific job! At that time Chris worked on a number of projects including the finishing of our basement, replacing all the windows in the house, and remodeling some rooms. We felt comfortable with Chris and were able to work well with his team. Since that time we had Chris replace our kitchen and we recently had the siding of our home redone. Chris is always true to his word and ensures that you are totally satisfied with his work, which is absolutely wonderful. I know that we chose the right man for the job and I know that in the future we can always count on Chris Gallagher!


Marie & kevin Shanahan says:

You read and hear horror stories in the media about the contractors who make life a living hell for their customers. You are the farthest thing from this stereotype! "From the time we first met and you prepared the estimate for our 2-story addition to our home, right up until the final day you and your crew were at our home, we could not have been happier with your craftsmanship, work ethic and ability to meet, and very often exceed, your timelines. "We are very happy with the end result—a beautiful new kitchen, a tremendous fmily room and the new bedroom is great! Also it's nice to not have to walk up or down stairs to use the bathroom—thanks to the new half bath on the first floor. "You did a great job and we are ready, willing and able to provide any potential new clients a reference on your behalf!"


Andy says:

Just wanted to say thank you again for our new bathroom dormer. It was a pleasure from start to finish. It looks great and we love it. Your guys were punctual, worked neat and as a team. Your updates on each phase was accurate as everything unfolded as you described it would. We look forward to our new project. If you ever need a reference you can always give our number. You guys are great and the finished product reflects this. Thanks again.


DB says:

We were very happy with the work done by C.P. Gallagher Construction. Chris is not only reliable and extremely capable, but also has the insight to recommend plans – or to suggest alternatives to any ideas we might have had; and he is always available to answer questions. We are looking forward to having Chris help us out with any future projects and would highly recommend him.


John & Janet Maderik says:

We are so happy that we chose CP Gallagher as our contractor. From demolition to interior design, and everything in between, the craftsmanship was superb. our home was completed to our satisfaction—and beyond. Dependability and overall honesty was a concern, but Chris and his team put our minds at ease. Nothing was done without our approval and great advice was offered for some things we weren't sure of. CP Gallagher is one construction corporation we would recommend to everyone and would definitely use again in the future. It is a joy coming home to our new beautiful house.


Lucy & Phil Armato says:

Just wanted to let you know how totally pleased we are with the services that CP Gallagher Construction provided with our present kitchen renovation. The work was performed in an efficient and meticulous manner and we liked that we were always able to be in contact with you! Chris, we were so impressed with your craftsmanship! The post between the kitchen and dining room came out just beautiful! We left the details up to you and we were pleasantly surprised with the end result! It was a pleasure to work with someone as reliable and honest as you and let's not forget your addiction to neatness!! We've already recommended you to a friend of ours and would be more than happy to do so in the future.


J. La Lota says:

We were very pleased with the work of the Gallagher team. Chris was very professional and everything was delivered as promised. Our job was pretty sizable and complex, but Chris was there every step of the way as we discussed the options for each phase of the job. He was very flexible and there were no surprises when it came to the bill. We highly recommend CP Gallagher.


Robert and Cori Knupfer says:

Working with CP Gallagher turned out to be the best decision for the renovation of our basement. Chris was knowledgeable, understanding and completely thorough while working on our basement renovation, CP Gallagher worked with the plans my architect drew up and executed them perfectly with no problems whatsoever. We are now starting the process of renovating our kitchen and look forward to working with CP Gallagher again. Chris is a total pro and we are happy to have found him! We would highly recommend CP Gallagher for any home improvements projects! Thank You Chris


Ellen and Joel D. says:

When you have someone work on your home, it can be a frustrating and intrusive process. However, in Chris Gallagher you have a partner who will use his expertise and competence to help you to achieve your remodeling goals. We found that Chris has the attitude, skill and professionalism that make the typical headaches and problems of construction manageable. With his "can-do" attitude and attention to detail, Chris works in collaboration with the homeowner to make sure that job is done correctly both structurally and aesthetically. He is a "thinking person's" builder -- making helpful suggestions and anticipating difficulties along the way. His general good nature, high standards and desire to produce a quality product make him a pleasure to work with.


J.E. says:

After having several contractors and a " leak specialist" investigate several leaks we were having in several rooms of my house (upper and lower Level) I finally was referred to Chris Gallagher by specialist from Dupont–Tyvek home wrap systems. Chris spent a good amount of time investigating every possibility and finally found the problem. It has been 3 or 4 years since Chris did the reconstruction and we haven't had a single drop of water in our house. Chris was extremely patient, professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend Chris for any type of home construction or repairs.


Janice and Jim Dollard says:

Chris Gallagher first met with us to help us choose which improvements we wanted to make. He works with and recommends good subcontractors and suppliers. He is also skilled at carpentry and all means of construction. Chris recommended little details that made a big difference in how our house looks and functions. He has spotless integrity and stands behind his work as well as the work of his subcontractors. I would recommend him to anyone for anything from minor improvements to a full teardown and rebuild. Every day when I see how much better our house is I am reminded how blessed we are to have found a general contractor as good as Chris Gallagher.
