"As the owner of a home built in 1765, I feel a great sense of responsibility to preserve it, even as we continue to make it comfortable for modern use.

We are fortunate indeed, then, to have Friend Builders as our general contractor.  

Brady is a superb G.C., a craftsman who takes pride in his own work and in overseeing the excellent work of his subcontractors. We rely on him for major design-build projects (sometimes in lieu of an architect), for odd jobs, for winterizing the house, and to suggest the many things we sometimes forget need doing.

Owning an older home requires trusted partnerships. Brady and his team go about their work with ready smiles and can be counted on for good sense, good advice, and to do what they say they will, when they say they will. I look forward to working with him, and his team, for many years to come." Hartford G. 




"Brady and his crew did 4 big projects at our home over the last 6 years, and his work through the life of the project --- from concept to final approvals –

was meticulous, careful and patient.  

He was on the job site every day and his workmanship is always fantastic.  His fellow tradesmen marvel at his attention to detail. Brady has been available between jobs on short notice to do those small jobs that are so difficult to find help for, and he has a catalogue of tradesmen that are equally excellent and very responsive.   


We highly recommend Brady and his team."

"Just a note to express to both of you our gratitude for the wonderful renovation of our kitchen. It is absolutely beautiful. 

I can't express to you enough how totally happy I am with the way it turned out. Manny was truly surprised when he came home and saw the transformation. 

Please relay my thanks to Carl and Mike (electricians) and Larry (plumber) and the two HVAC guys, whose names I don't recall, and Rick who redid the hardwood floors. All of them, and of course, both of you, treated our home with such respect and were so very professional in all aspects of the job. 

Please feel free to give our name as a reference to anyone who may be contemplating utilizing your services. However, I seem to think your reputation may precede you, and our endorsement might not be necessary.

Again, our heartfelt thanks.

Manny and Dottie D."

Brady Friend added a sunroom and a deck to our home.  He was a pleasure to work with, and skilled at managing his talented staff and subcontractors.  His craftsmanship transformed a rough drawing into a signature space, and our favorite room in the house.  We have since employed him as caretaker of our home during vacations; we know we can trust him to respond appropriately to any situation.
