    Plum Island, Newbury, MA – Beach House, Second Floor Home Renovation

    Henry and his team just finished a complete reconfiguration and renovation of the second floor of our Plum Island beach house and we couldn’t be more pleased.

    The space is beautiful and functional, and the work is very high quality. The renovation was completed on budget and ahead of schedule – how often does that happen?

    Just as important as the end product, the process was smooth and easy. Henry kept us up to speed on what would be happening week to week and always checked in with us when any decision needed to be made.

    When we were undecided or needed advice, Henry graciously worked us through the process to ensure that we chose wisely.

    His decades of experience certainly came in handy.
    Henry is so customer focused and made sure every little detail was cared for so that we would love the end product. And we do!!

    He was always available and patiently answered all of our questions even if they were not directly related to our project. We could not recommend him more highly!

    Thank you, Henry!

    Plum Island, Newbury, MA – Home Renovation

    We worked with Henry on a major renovation of our home on Plum Island in 2019-2020. Henry has been great to work with. We have found him to be responsive and flexible, with attention to detail and an obsession with quality. He provides excellent communication – he is not one of those developers that goes off and you don’t hear from them until the end of the project.

    We received almost daily texts or calls from him on updates, questions, or just to check in. He uses a crew of high quality subcontractors who did excellent work – architect, carpenter, electrician, painter, etc.

    He also has great referrals for flooring, tiling, cabinets, fireplace, etc. – they all have worked with Henry in the past and their attitude changes immediately – for the good – when you tell them Henry is your builder. In summary, we highly recommend Henry for this type of work!

    Custom Built Home – Newburyport, MA

    I had lived in Newburyport for over 20 years and was very happy in my home until I drove by the property on Plum Island that was for sale. I instantly fell in love with the house! Details such as the position of the house on the lot – Henry Becker built the house so that one can see the sunset from the fabulous kitchen and the sun rise from the other side of the house.

    Henry has maximized the natural light of Plum Island, using top of the line products and quality materials. It’s hard to know which feature is the most dramatic: the open stairway framed by a three-floor window, the chef’s dream of a kitchen, the many decks, or the spiral staircase to the roof with a 360 degree view.

    My home is Henry Becker’s piece de resistance, the result of many years of experience, combined with his uncanny instincts about how to exceed the expectations of discerning clients. (of course, I’m a bit biased). I always feel as though I’m on vacation in my dream house. I couldn’t be happier in my new Henry Becker home.

    **of note: Henry always responds quickly to any question that arises. His services does not stop when the house is built, remodeled, or sold.

    1950 Home Makeover

    We both wish to thank you for your professionalism, guidance, and hand-holding during the makeover of our 50’s ranch. You were able to take a 1950 house and transform it into a 2017 model with all the amenities, particularly suited for us. Listening to our wishes and recognizing our advancing age, you suggested many great and useful ideas such as convenient closets, grab bars, an appropriate tub, lots of good lighting, more windows, and glass doors with built in blinds. Everything was performed on time and as agreed. We wish all general contractors could learn from you.

    When the project was complete and we were able to move in, we knew we could always call if we had questions or concerns. You told us you wanted your customers happy and you wouldn’t leave until that was true. A simple phone call or text was all it took and you responded the same day, either via the phone or a personal visit. You are still doing that today – almost 2 years later. We have come to depend on you, your knowledge, and your quick response.

    Thank you for guiding us through the process, being there whenever we needed you, and for always being a gentleman. You really are the gold standard for contractors.

    1850 Home Update

    I wanted to send you a note to thank you for all you have done for me and my parents! In 2012 I entrusted you to update my 1850 home while I was away on business travel. I provided you the keys and you did everything we discussed and more. You kept me up to date, even sending me pics so I could view the progress. You also came up with innovative ideas to make my home truly mine, and provided sound counseling on any crazy idea that I had. It took a few years to get thru all of the projects, but I am so very happy with the results. My home is truly, uniquely, mine.

    In 2016 I let you know I wanted to move my parents to the NE to be closer to me. You helped me find a house that would fit their needs and you managed to bring it from shambles to a beautiful, modern home in just a few months! They moved into the home in August and have been completely satisfied. You were able to recommend amenities that would be helpful to them and keep them safe. For that I thank you!

    Once a customer of yours, always a customer. You have helped me resolve home issues over the years even though they have nothing to do with your update. It is comforting to know that all I have to do is make a call and you will be sure to get someone to the house to help, generally the same day!

    If I ever have another property to update, I know I would be calling you! Thank you for your honesty and professionalism, and for never forgetting your customers!

    Full Addition on Large Waterfront Plum IslandBeach House Made from Wooden Panels

    Henry and his crew were incredible from the original estimate to the completed project. All numbers were firm and did not change, time horizons were honored and Henry continually consulted about any issues or changes. Several of his recommendations made the rooms jazzier and more distinctive. His taste is excellent and since he has done a vast amount of renovations, his opinions are more valuable than many decorators. I would highly recommend Henry and his staff for any project. 

    P.S. Henry is charming and fun to have around and very easy to talk to and describe things that you want or changes you want to make.
