Knowledgeable, honest, hardworking contractor...

We are writing to thank you for the recommendation of Don Coburn. We would like to extend of few words to you in regards to his workmanship. From the very beginning of our project, Don provided us with excellent work and service creating a beautiful and spectacular new home for us. The job included everything from zoning issues, heavy demolition, and construction to finely detailed carpentry, electrical wiring, and plumbing to bathroom tile work. Our site presented Don and his crew with several challenges that they gracefully and creatively overcame. While keeping us informed at all times on every aspect of the job. Being from NY as the construction was going on, Don was extremely informative. Our phone calls, text, and emails never went unanswered and were always first on Don's list. Don and his employees maintained the highest degree of professionalism, high quality craftsmanship, • and were very responsive and friendly throughout the process. Even through the coldest of Maine days, work was and did progress. Don worked in a cooperative and collaborative fashion with us at all times. It was obvious to' us from the beginning that Don takes great pride in his details. This ethical way of workmanship was carried throughout the entire project. We are extremely pleased with the aesthetic results, as well as Dons ability to complete the job on time and within budget. Don was considerate, and his accommodating efforts went above and beyond allowing us to use his personal garage for storage as well as receiving and inspecting several items at his personal address. All of Dons extra efforts gave us the utmost absolute confidence at all times. Equally important to us was the work ethics of his crew. Always being considerate and accommodating to not only us, but our neighbors to. Keeping the noise level at a low, and keeping the worksite spotless at all times. This experience was better than expected. We appreciate all of the efforts of Don Coburn and would not hesitate to work with him again or recommend him to anyone needing an excellent, knowledgeable, honest, hardworking contractor. Thank you again for the recommendation. We invite you to stop over at our new, beautiful home and see for yourself the unbelievable craftsmanship.

Kindest Regards, Kevin and Maryanne H.

Promptness of your work was outstanding...

I am most pleased to be a reference for you and your company. It was a pleasure working with you on my two homes. The quality and promptness of your work was outstanding, and you delivered what you said you would do. I appreciated your ongoing communication to keep me informed as to what was being done. In my experience, contractors generally are not able to express themselves as well as you do. Your attention, to protecting the cleanliness of the rest of my home was also appreciated.

l was impressed with the kindness, patience, and manners of you and all your workers; you are true gentlemen! The fact that you worked right along with your men, pitching in with whatever had to get done was extraordinary. You are a jack of all trades, AND a master of all of them! Please feel free to use this acknowledgement of you and your company at your discretion.

All my best,

Beverly S.

Man of his word...

One of the best decisions...

One of the best decisions we made was hiring Don Coburn to build our custom home in Kennebunkport Maine.   We are so happy with our new home and cannot say enough good things about Don.  He was absolutely amazing to work with!  We live in MA and were concerned about not being in Maine during the construction, but Don quickly put us at ease.  He stayed in constant contact with us throughout the entire project with frequent phone calls, emails, photos and texts so we were kept up to date throughout the entire project.  The quality of his work is amazing and his attention to detail is impeccable.   The team of contractors he works with (framers, foundation, plumbers, electricians, tile, etc.) have all been extremely high quality and efficient.  Don was excellent about the budget and always looking for ways to help us cut down on the overall cost.  In addition, he was incredible about the timing of the project and met our agreed completion deadline.  We feel so lucky that we selected Don to build our custom home, he is one of the nicest people we know, we highly recommend him without hesitation.

He has been extremely trustworthy...

It is our pleasure to recommend Don Coburn for your next home building or renovation project.

We have worked with Don over the last few months in planning and completing an addition to our home. He added an office, second master suite, new stairway, fireplace and built-ins, as well as new siding, . . windows, doors, and a custom-built cupola. Not only did he start the project in February 2015 (one of the worst winters ever), he finished on time as he said he would on Memorial Day weekend. Even with five feet of snow plus on the ground, he "plowed" through and made the project happen, so it could be completed for us in time for summer. He did not make any major decisions without contacting us first and proved to have extremely good communication from a distance (we were in another state when the project was taking place). We were so impressed with his patience, attention to detail and hard work ethic. He has been extremely trustworthy and has made every effort to complete projects exactly as we wanted them done, while paying close attention to costs at the same time. He was eager and enthusiastic when we suggested new projects or changed our minds at the last minute. His communication and craftsmanship were both excellent throughout the entire renovation. We cannot recommend him highly enough. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns, and feel free to stop or drive by our house to see his wonderful work.

Sincerely, Shelley and Paul K.

Top of the list for customer satisfaction...

Dear Don,

We both wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to you for the wonderful work that you did at our home in Kennebunkport during August 2008. We both agree that your work was exceptional, professional and of highest quality.

We were very impressed with your ability to complete the project in real record time. Your workmanship was of the highest order with complete attention to detail as needed without sacrificing your intended time schedule for completion of the job.

Of special note was your practice of keeping us constantly updated as to your progress and daily activities so we could properly plan our day. We especially appreciated your punctuality and your pleasant optimistic attitude toward the project. Your constant attention to keeping the work area and adjacent areas clean was very impressive to Mimi.

Having owned a number of houses over the years in a number of different markets I can say that your work was right at the top of the list for customer satisfaction.

We have no reservation in recommending you to anybody who expects top quality work. Again thank you!

Sincerely yours,

Severin T.

Don was extremely conscientious...

Last year Don put on an addition to our home in Kennebunkport. It was a bedroom, bath, and entry hall. It was finished on time, on budget, and the whole project went smoothly and the attention to detail by Don was exceptional. In the past we have built a home in Massachusetts, and renovated a home in Kennebunkport and know how important it is to have orders placed and subs lined up so that there is no lag time and the project moves quickly. Don was absolutely on top of all orders and his subs were excellent. I was on site on and off during the building process and Don was extremely conscientious about trying not to intrude and kept disruption to a minimum. I also think a very important aspect of the project was that Don not only had a number of suggestions to improve our addition, but also did some of the work himself. He did a remarkable job of tiling the shower, worked hard to match the stain and board lengths for the flooring. What I liked about this is that he didn't just manage the project, but participated in the work itself and had an attention to detail.

So, all in all, we recommend Don and his company highly! We are also happy to talk to anyone about our project or even show Don's work.

Thank you, Robin and Hap E.

trustworthy and dependable contractor...

Don Coburn is a trustworthy and dependable contractor whom I would strongly recommend. He has proven to be someone of good character who shows up on time, every time, and does not take on more projects than he can complete in a timely manner. 
Don's work has always been completed in the same manner in which conducts his planning. He understands the importance of explaining not only what he is going to do, but why he is going to do it. Don has worked locally within this community for many years, and has earned a solid reputation as someone you can count on. He has handled multiple projects on my behalf, and I would trust him with any future projects as well. 

With regards, Michael C.
