Jill and I want to thank you for the outstanding job repairing our kitchen and dining room after the recent flood from the second floor bathroom. As you know, the kitchen is Jill's pride and joy. The damage the leak caused looked like we would not be able to get the kitchen looking the way it was prior. After interviewing several contractors and an endorsement from our mutual friend, we decided to use your services. As you know, its always an unknown when picking a contractor and we felt very comfortable, especially after your visit to estimate the job. We were even more comfortable when you showed up "early" to start the repairs. Your attention to detail and your concern to make sure we were safe and happy with the work was very refreshing. The constant communication with us made a stressful event somewhat enjoyable.
Thanks to you, Phil, Nelson, Rich and John, we can say the cabinets, ceiling, walls, paint and stains, floors and electrical not only look as good when the kitchen was new but better because you got the details right (wish we had known you when we originally did the kitchen). Jill is happily back in the kitchen turning out great meals again. This work was truly performed by the craftsman of their trades. If you ever need a reference feel free to use our name. Thanks again for everything.
Our Best to you and the guys."

"We have used LG Home Improvement for three major projects in our home in Newtown. They fixed a horrible drainage situation in our garage, installed a beautiful stone patio, and set us up with a whole house, propane powered generator. Spurge and his entire team of artisans are courteous, professional and just plain fun to be around. Spurge is not one of those absentee business owners. He is either on site doing the work himself or he is checking in at the end of the day by phone or in person. He cares deeply about the quality of the work done by his team and makes sure you are completely satisfied with the results. My wife and I highly recommend LG Home Improvement, and will certainly be giving Spurge a call the next time we need something done."

"We have hired LG Home Improvement for three significant projects at our home over the past 6 years. We have nothing but great things to say about our experience working with Spurge and his team. All work has been of very high quality with great attention to detail. All work was delivered on-time and included follow-ups after each job was completed to ensure we were satisfied. While LG’s work is top notch, the only factor even more important than quality is TRUST – and there is no company/person I trust more to complete a project in my home, and also to be fair in all aspects of the transaction. I am pleased to recommend LG Home improvement and will certainly hire them again for future home improvement projects."
Mike Speaker – Stamford, CT
"LG has done large and small projects at our home ranging from significant rebuilding and repair after Superstorm Sandy to replacing rotting window frames. Spurge's work always exceeds expectations. In addition to being an outstanding carpenter, Spurge is very good a diagnosing and addressing root causes of problems. His work is high quality and fair priced. When additional contractors are required, Spurge recommends men with high standards similar to his own."
Dean Atkinson – Weston, CT
"LG Home Improvement is comprised of a team of extremely creative master craftsmen who take tremendous pride in their work – and deliver way more than promised. We are talking quality, and quality at a fair price. The LG team always arrived as scheduled, never departed the premises until the job was totally complete, and cleaned up better than the Merry Maids. All additional sub-contractors required for any project are of the same caliber. When they finish and leave, we miss them terribly. Now how many other contractors with whom you’ve worked can you say this about? Ask yourself! We highly recommend LG Home Improvement and would be pleased to show you the work this team has done."

"Spurge and team did an exemplary rebuild and restoration of the front deck of our 1930’s farmhouse. From the selection of wood to the critical structural solutions Spurge was reliable, resourceful and efficient. The end product enhances our home and is certain to be enjoyed by our family and those that follow for many, many years. We also use Spurge for smaller home improvement projects that he completes with dedication to top quality work at a competitive price."
Dan and Lisa – Wilton, CT
"Spurge and his guys have worked for us for about six years. We have a newer home so we haven't had any major work done, but he's always there for us for any home maintenance issues that come up. He's done everything from changing light bulbs to raking snow from our roof and all kinds of jobs in between. When we go away we have him come over and check our house. He recommends other service providers that he trusts when it's a job that he doesn't do and will make sure the job is done right and that the price is fair, and that the person gets back to us. Frankly, Spurge has been a God-send and we think of him as a trusted friend."
Lyn M – Weston, CT
"The place looks fabulous. The kitchen, along with the deck and other work you have done here will sell this house. Your work has been executed well, on time and on budget. You have not charged for a general contractor's fee, yet you performed that role. Thank you for putting up with my grumblings. You did a great job of tolerating them and me."
Liz H – Redding, CT
"The two new bathrooms you rebuilt look great, and we really appreciate the workmanship that went into the project. Please pass our appreciation to everyone who was involved. All your subs were great to deal with, worked well together, got the job done in a reasonable timeframe, and finished with two new rooms we are very happy with."
Ed C – Trumbull, CT
"LG Home Improvement made substantial repairs in our (original) 1950s bathroom. We'd had leaking tile and a rotting window in the tub area which had caused damage over time. Mr. Glidden and his associate replaced rotted studs, subflooring, and sheetrock where needed. He replaced the wooden window with a fiberglass framed, tempered glass one to get it up to safety code. They also installed beadboard around the perimeter of the room to update its look. All of the work was solid. I can't say enough about Mr. Glidden's carpentry skills and professionalism. It was a good feeling to know that he was capable of handling the issues we ran into along the way, (with rot, etc). On top of that, he is pleasant, trustworthy, and takes time to explain his estimates and material options/choices in detail, so you fully understand what is being done and why. I plan to hire him again for future work."
Lynne & Steve – Darien, CT
"LG Home Improvement did some carpentry work for us. My house is twenty five years old and the exterior trim was rotting. They replaced it all and rebuilt our front door. They also rebuilt a couple of windows. They are very responsive and personable. They are friendly, and they went out of their way to avoid costs for us. They rebuilt doors and windows instead of telling us to buy new ones. They were really good at seeing other problems we weren't aware of and fixing them for us. They've been great."
Jane & Jim – Wilton, CT
"Spurge and his crew re-did our bathroom in 2011. This involved taking the bathroom to the studs, ripping up the floor and starting from scratch on all surfaces except the ceiling. Subsequently we have referred our friends and family to him any time we hear they are planning to have work done in and around their house. And now they are referring their friends and family to him. In the end, that says it all—that and repeat business. We are also talking about future projects with Spurge. Two years later, the metamorphosis of that room still makes us smile. What sets them apart? Integrity, honesty, talent, craftsmanship, pleasant demeanors, interest in and ability to find the best solution for you. They are on time and on budget. They do not overpromise. They deliver. The first words that come to mind when I think of them is “above and beyond.”

"Again, you have helped me out of a jam! Thank you for always coming to the rescue and providing work I know I can rely upon. Now, if you would just move to Florida."
