“Working with Mike when we re-built a house in Rockport was a wonderful experience.  The quality of work as well as his honesty, fairness and timely completion of the project restored our faith in contractors!   We would not think twice about using Mike’s company for any future projects.”

Vicki and Jeff Donahue, Rockport, Massachusetts

“Mike D’Annolfo recently completed a kitchen renovation for us. Timing was an issue as he began in mid November and we were anxious to have it completed before Christmas. Our renovation involved combining a kitchen and separate dining room into one large, eat-in kitchen with new windows, doors, flooring, ceiling, walls, as well as cabinets, counters & appliances. Mike perfectly coordinated the sub-contractors and even inspections were prompt. As promised, we took occupancy of our beautiful new kitchen on December 22nd.   Mike and his employees were always on the job at 7:30AM and were not only professional and courteous, but kind and responsive at all times. If I needed to contact Mike, I was always able to reach him either by phone or email and got responses very quickly.

I highly recommend Mike for any project and thanks to Mike and company, we have a great new kitchen that we love… thank you, Mike!”

Nina and Jim Perry, Rockport, Massachusetts

“Mike is great to work with. It’s rare to find a carpenter/contractor who takes such pride in his craft and really works with you to understand what you want. He often brought up options that neither we nor our architect had thought about. Mike put on an addition that compliments our 75 year old house including a staircase that looks it was always there. We recommend him to anyone looking for quality and honesty.”

Mike and Joanna Duda,  Rockport, Massachusetts

“Mike D’Annolfo has been handling all of our carpentry work over the last several years, and we couldn’t be more pleased, We feel like we’ve struck gold!

A true craftsman to his trade, everything he works on is performed meticulously with his sharp eyes for detail, yet keeping his client’s best interests (and checkbook) in mind. Being in the lodging industry, Mike has also been extraordinarily accommodating to us as well, by rearranging his daily work schedules in order to work around our guests with a minimum of inconvenience for them and for us. Mike is an intelligent, ethical/trustworthy trademan with competitive hourly rates, what more could one hope for? If you’re fortunate enough to be able to hire him – do so quickly, you won’t regret it!”

The Tuck Inn Bed & Breakfast, Rockport, MA

“Mike D’Annolfo and his crew have done work on my house for quite a few years now, including making it into a 2 family by adding a 2 story, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom living space.  The addition is quite beautiful and was well planned out and executed.  I am amazed at how sound proof it is and how they were able to maintain my privacy.  In my part of the house they renovated my kitchen and bathrooms as well as various other projects like replacing all of the windows and doors.  Everything was done to perfection and it was always a pleasure to have them in my home.  I would recommend Mike and Co. to anyone looking to either renovate or do a new build type of project. “

“Mike and his team took on the kitchen renovation in our 1850 vintage home with care and creativity – giving us good ideas then implementing our decisions with great attention to detail. This project required a lot of structural work and problem-solving…no problem.  Most important, the work was completed right on budget. Hope to have them back soon!”

Jack and Fara, Gloucester, MA

“Not only is the quality of Mike’s work great, but he is also reliable, personable, and straightforward. We also found his crew to be hard working and pleasant to have around. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the project from initial design through final details. I would recommend him to family and friends without hesitation.”

Margaret Chadbourne, Rockport, MA

“We are very happy with our charming garage that Mike built. It was a difficult project in that the garage was to be an extension of a 1 and 1/2 story  historic “tool shed”. Mike blended the two structures beautifully. Mike and his crew were very easy to work with and responsive. Our project was completed when promised and within budget.  Please feel free to stop by to see our garage and/or to call for a reference.”

Hildy Feuerbach and Scott Folger, Rockport, MA

Dick and Nancy Boulter, Rockport, Massachusetts

“Mike D’Annolfo and his crew did a wonderful job in the modifications to are house. The work involved the conversion of a laundry room to a half bath, the creation of a new laundry room, a kitchen remodel including new floors, counter tops, and cabinets, and a couple of on site custom built oak cabinets. Mike also created a new roof over the front porch, installed a half circle window in a difficult third floor location and performed work on our deck as well. All the work was done with care to minimize cost and inconvenience and was done in a most expedient manner. We are very happy with the cost and results.”
