Testimonials

I want to thank you for doing an amazing job on the house and making sure everything was done RIGHT way and in a timely fashion. You truly made a stressful situation go very smoothly and put my concerns and anxieties about it to rest. It's nice in this day and age to find people you can trust (that are not family members) that take pride in what they do and you don't need to worry about if you are getting screwed over. It was a pleasure getting to know you on a personal level as well and enjoyed our talked here and there at the house. Again we can't thank you enough for impeccable job you did on the house! I look forward to a continued long relationship.

Building a home from the ground up is an overwhelming experience but the right G. C. can make all the difference. Donal knows exactly what to do when it comes to translating your building plans into reality. From filing forms to coordinating subs, his knowledge from years of experience is obvious from your first conversation. He brings with him a team of skilled, hardworking and polite craftsman from every discipline. As an expert in Haven modular homes, our house was built with "extreme makeover" timing. We will marvel at the precision and beauty of our home. 

If we had to pick one work to describe Donal it would be QUALITY. He demands it, produces it and personifies it. 

If you have any questions or would like to see our home you can contact us through Donal.

We just want to tell you home much we enjoyed working with you and Joe. You made an enormous project come to life with your knowledge, suggestions and expertise. Nothing was ever a problem. You made the process flow extremely smoothly. It was a pleasure working with you everyday and all of your people. You truly made our dream come alive--you turned our house into a home which we are thoroughly enjoying. You became not only our contractor/builder but our friend as well.

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for doing a quality job on building my house in long beach.  From what I heard during the first of the 3 nor' easters in the past week or so there were 80 - 90 MPH winds and significant flooding especially from the bay side.  Water came up a little past the bottom of cars.  The tenants told me there was not a drop of water inside the house or in any of the storage/common areas on the ground floor.  There wasn't a single piece of missing siding or roof shingles. Thank you again for doing an outstanding quality job and standing by your work. I've said it in the past but just wanted to say it again that if you ever need me to be a reference let me know.

Thank you so much for building our beautiful new home in Atlantic Beach. David and I are thrilled with the quality of our Haven Home, but we truly believe that the project was so successful because of your knowledge and commitment. The time and effort that you put into building our home really made a difference. From helping us create the perfect floor plan to obtaining permits you were there for us every step of the way ensuring that every detail was just right. We just loved working with you!

Now that the house is complete we would also like to thank Jow and yourself for continuing to be there for us whenever we have a problem or a question. You have been so helpful. 

Looking back, we would not have chosen any other builder and would recommend you without hesitation.

It is with pleasure that I put pen to paper offering my recommendation to anyone seeking your services and or, a haven Home product. 

Your dedication to detail and knowledge of how Haven Homes constructed my home was always greatly appreciated. I am especially thankful for your immediate reaction to any question or issue that came up before, during and after we moved into the house. You and your staff have proven to be reliable, honest and very knowledgeable. Your flexibility and graciousness before the move was most certainly appreciated as well. 

Having now had two years experience living in this house, I am as pleased today as I was the day I moved in. The house is extremely solid and sound and has proven to be most efficient. I still cannot believe I don't have one crack in any wall or ceiling from settling! 

You made the process of buying a new home a most enjoyable one with your knowledge, honesty and wit. I most certainly recommend you and your company to anyone seeking a new home.

I am writing this letter to let you know how pleased and happy my family and I are with our finished home. We could not have made a better choice then Rossmore Homes to build our dream house. My thanks and praise go especially to Donal Finley, our contractor, and more importantly our friend. As we began the process of designing our modular second story addition with our architect Sam Ciccolella, Donal was there to give his opinions, thoughts, and expertise in making our dream a reality. His professionalism, attention to detail and understanding will always be remembered by my family. Working with Rossmore Homes and Donal made me realize the importance of choosing the right builder and the right people. The entire staff including the subcontractors Donald brought into our house displayed the same professionalism, understanding and attention to detail that we came to expect from Donal on a daily basis. I am pleased to report that our property and landscape was preserved because of the diligence practiced by all the workers. At the end of each work day, Donal came by to make sure we were satisfied with the cleanup. My neighbors could not say enough positive things about Donal and his entire work team. The speed and the quality of work done by your company is a shining example of making the customer happy, proud and totally satisfied. My wife and I feel you have a unique and special person in Donal Finley working for your company. We hope he is given the proper praise and gratitude by your company for the wonderful job he has done. Thank you again!

It is with great pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Donal Finlay. Donal was highly recommended to us by a friend and after meeting him and discussing our situation we hired him immediately as our GC to re-build our home that was destroyed by Super Storm Sandy.

As you can imagine, a rebuild of this magnitude was overwhelmingly stressful for us, but Donal's patience and understanding helped us get through it. The quality of his work and work ethic is nothing short of stellar, as well as his crew; the engineers, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, etc. he only hires the best in their respective trades and stands by their work. They were conscientious and he made sure they were following the project specification and timeline. Donal was there every single day, even Saturdays, overseeing the project and that it was done right! He has an outstanding attention to detail, strong organizational skills that enable him to coordinate and manage the activities of the different work crews effectively. I also should mention that he gave us great design ideas and anyone that comes to the house comments on how beautiful everything looks.

In his proposal, he wrote a clear & concise breakdown of cost for each facet of the project. It was a detailed contract, easy to understand and if we had questions he responded to them right away. He kept us informed, we spoke almost every day always reachable by phone or text message. He also made sure not to disrupt our neighbors, he was very accommodating to them. He would leave the house and surrounding area better than he found it and all debris was cleaned up.

I am writing this letter of recommendation for Donal Finlay because I believe that exceptional work should be recognized and I fully recommend Donal Finlay of Ballymore Homes to anyone! We were very lucky to find him because there are houses in our community where construction hasn't even begun or are at standstill.

Please feel free to contact us about our experience with Ballymore Homes and Donal Finlay.
