To prospective Alexander Custom Contractors' customers:
Now that the addition to our house is done and my wife and I are enjoying the new living space we often say to each other what great work Alexander Custom Contractors' did on the job. Our house had a certain country cottage charm to it before the addition and it was important to us that we keep that same aesthetic. Charlie and Howard Alexander and their work crew were able to make our dreams come true. The addition increased our house by nearly 49 percent, not counting the new 260 square-foot deck on the back. In the back of the house once occupied by a quaint crushed stone patio, Alexander Custom Contractors' built a master bedroom with oak hardwood floors and a large attached bathroom over a new four-foot concrete crawl-space basement. A skylight in the spacious bedroom brings in natural light for reading and on rainy nights a comforting, raindrop symphony. The bathroom tile is rustic and reminiscent of old Tuscany. A speakeasy door in the master bedroom opens onto a new tile-floored sunroom with French doors that lead onto the deck. Howard's tile work in the bathroom and sunroom was amazing. Opposite the speakeasy door on the other side of the sunroom, a new Dutch door opens into an existing kitchen and breakfast room, where Alexander Custom Contractors installed 6.5 foot tall and 8-foot wide bow window with magnificent views of the woods behind our home. At the front of the house, Alexander Custom Contractors extended the roofline off a 10-window sun room and added French doors with sidelights that lead out to a new 150 square foot screened-in porch. They also installed a new sliding glass door between the screened porch and an adjacent guest bedroom. Finally, they built an office/ study with oak hardwood floors over our one-car garage. The office/study has cathedral ceilings, double-hung windows on either end, and two sky lights, one for each roof pitch. This is a very solidly built addition. Howard and his crew did an excellent carpentry job and Alexander Custom Contractors' choice of subcontractors were first rate, including their excavator, siding man and flooring contractors. Charlie helped me save a lot of money on flooring and other materials and his background as a mechanical engineer and working relationship with a civil engineer saved me thousands of dollars on architectural fees. Howard takes great pride in his workmanship and I believe he and Charlie genuinely cared about my wife and me. Alexander Custom Contractors' built a superior addition for us and I recommend them highly.

Alexander Custom Contractors came and fixed the leaking pipe in my apartment when no plumbers would come and fix it. They have fair prices, and took care of my emergency within the hour. I highly recommend them for any home improvement need that you may have.

We hired Alexander Custom Contractors for a new kitchen. New cabinets, new counter tops, new back splash and new flooring. Very knowledgeable, on time, fair prices, and careful. I highly recommend Alexander Custom Contractors.

Alexander Custom Contractors recently remodeled our old moldy, dingy pink 1950's bathroom! They ripped out all the old heavy pink tiles and plaster walls in one day. They kept the dust from the demo to a minimum in other areas of the home. Howard and his crew did a great job installing a pocket door into our master bedroom, their drywall work was awesome and Howard's tile work was excellent! He did a wonderful job in tapering the shower's stone/tile floor right into the drain pipe. When we take showers, all the water moves to the drain, as it is tapered, so little or no water remains on the tile floor. This is not easy to do and Howard did it right the first time. Howard and his crew are hard workers, I honestly don't remember them taking a break. We'd never had any work done by them in the past, but we are very happy with their work and plan on having them back for other projects!

I contacted Alexander Custom Contractors for some work in my home in Philadelphia. Although they don't usually perform work within the city, they were able to make an exception with promising results. Due to the parking problem in my neighborhood, I had my front lawn torn apart and redone into a driveway. I received quotes for the same work from other contractors and Alexander Custom Contractors beat their prices by thousands of dollars! From that moment on, I knew these were the guys to trust. They brought on site their own machinery and equipment and were able to complete the work within a matter of hours. I thank Howard Alexander and his team for their hard work and great service.
