What Our Clients Say!

“The work was completed in a timely manner, the work was done completely and neatly, the end result…another great experience with DiStefano Brothers company. We would choose this company again and always recommend this company to others!”

William & Eileen Swart

“When it was time to renovate our 35-year-old kitchen, as home improvement novices, we were pretty nervous. Luckily, a good friend was in the midst of a bathroom renovation and he strongly recommended DiStefano Brothers. One gleaming, beautiful kitchen and dining room later, we could not be more happy with our choice. The entire team at DiStefano made the project easy and exciting! John Bianco in sales made the process clear and transparent, Kristen Longo created a jaw-dropping design, and project manager Dave Meegan provided uncompromising quality execution. Communication was always clear, making a complicated project easy to track and manage—especially important because we were both working from home at the time. Even with COVID disruptions, the project was completed quickly and on budget. We will definitely be using DiStefano Brothers again, and recommend them to all friends considering renovation.” 

Cate Morrison

“We hired DiStefano Brothers for our living room remodel. We wanted a wall removed to expand the living room, windows installed, half wall between kitchen and living room removed, A/C split installed and french doors on the first floor office. Major challenge was making these two rooms look like one so we needed a builder that could conceptualize and brainstorm with us about how to accomplish our goals. Having a drawing to help visualize how it would all come together was so helpful. Customer Service is very important to us and DiStefano exceeded our expectations! From the initial meeting to the final walk through and beyond the communication and service were amazing. Every sub that entered our home was so professional and courteous that you’d think they were all employed by DiStefano. The CoConstruct App used by the company and the customer makes communication easy! Tom went out of his way even beyond the app to share updates and any changes to the schedule. Anytime we had questions or even needed something after hours, they continued to responsive. Oh, and they pride themselves on being as neat as possible while you are living among construction. We couldn’t be happier with our remodeled living space and would most definitely use them again for future projects” 

Sara Marshall

“We did 2 projects in our house, back to back with DiStefano Bros. We are thrilled with the remodel results and their attention to detail, both construction and design. The team is so easy to work with and the process is streamlined and transparent. The workers are discrete and respectful in your house. They take care as if your house was their own. They were each a pleasure to see every day. We have future projects we are planning and will definitely work with DiStefano again. Highest recommendation.”


“I would highly recommend DBC to anyone who has a home improvement project. They are very professional and every time I work with them they do great quality work. They go above and beyond for their customers and I will definitely hire them again in the future.”

John Henderson Construction

“Once we decided to renovate our master bathroom, we interviewed and obtained preliminary cost estimates from 3 design and construction companies. Because of their attentiveness, ease of communication and reasonable estimate, we decided upon [DiStefano Brothers] for our project. Needless to say, we were very pleased with our decision. Their design suggestions both for materials and color schemes were superb. The actual construction proceeded exactly according to their schedule. The project manager was always there to supervise and to seek our input on the various stages, from demo to tile work to cabinet installation to painting. We were impressed with DiStefano’s timeliness, attention to detail and the price for value. Almost on a daily basis I … hear my wife say, “I love my new bathroom!”. We highly recommend DiStefano Brothers Construction.”

Joe Dizo

“DiStefano Brothers did an extensive renovation of our bathroom. The walls were redone with new tile, the floor was replaced and, best of all, the tub was replaced with a beautiful, spacious, [curbless] shower. They were great to work with through every step of the project. Their design was spot on and we greatly appreciated Marisa’s help with making color and tile choices. Their staff were professional and courteous, doing everything they could to accommodate our needs as they renovated our only bathroom. And yes, they removed the toilet every morning and reinstalled it before they left each day!”

Sue L.

“My experience working with this company was excellent! Very professional, courteous, and reliable. Excellent work ethic. I was comfortable leaving workers alone in my home when I left for work. They also took care of our dog! Attention to every detail. Cleaned up at the end of each day, locked up if we were not there. My kitchen remodel is beyond what I dreamed of. I’m very happy, would recommend this company!”

Barbara J.

“We had our master bath and kitchen redone and they turned out beautifully, beyond any expectations we had. Peter, Kristen, Eric and the rest of the team were wonderful to work with. We then just had our garage and front walkway done with their concrete floor coating. One day to do and it looks gorgeous. Feels like we walk into a car showroom every time we enter the garage! We just have to figure out our next project with them!”

Jaime McGonagle

“DiStefano Brothers Construction recently remodeled my kitchen. The work exceeded my expectations and I love it! When I scroll through the Houzz kitchens, I still like mine the best! They provided a schedule, kept true to it and finished on-time. Peter and his staff are focused on the details and making the client happy. Every day they cleaned up the jobsite inside and outside our home. The staff and contractors that were sent to our home were friendly, professional and knowledgeable in their areas of expertise. There were no surprises in the final bill for the work; other than items I specifically added, it matched the quote. This team really has the client’s best interest at heart. For example, Peter traveled to two states and three granite dealers with me until we found the perfect slab! I can’t wait for the next project!”

Kim N.

“Without reservation, we recommend DiStefano Brothers. We substantially remodeled our home (kitchen, bathrooms, mudroom, laundry room, pantry) and were very pleased with the quality of work and particularly Peter’s responsiveness to our questions and concerns. He has skilled craftsmen with whom he works, that really pay attention to detail. Peter and his crew were a pleasure to work with.”

Christine M.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Peter DiStefano and his team on multiple design-build projects. What a joy. They are always looking out for their client’s best interest and approach projects so that there are no surprises. This means that their estimates are pretty spot on – no add-ons at the end that weren’t disclosed upfront. The level of service that DBC provides is topnotch – always ensuring to protect the client’s home carefully during construction, something you should not take lightly. His crew members are true craftsmen who have many years of experience mastering their craft and I know Peter is a true believer in always learning about new cutting-edge products that would benefit his projects and client’s timeline or bottom line. Five stars for DiStefano Brothers Construction!”

Blakeley Interior Design

“I have used DiStefano Brothers Construction on several occasions to help our customers with their remodeling needs. Peter and his staff have a great, get it done type attitude. Their experience with material selection and helping guide our customers through the design phase makes for a seamlessly scheduled project. I do, often, highly recommend their company to our customers.”

“Topnotch, reliable, attentive and responsible contractors! DiStefano Brothers will not disappoint! I highly recommend them!”

Tammy Comstock

“DiStefano Brothers just did our bathroom addition and it came out better than we could’ve imagined! Great team to work with and the quality of work is impressive!”

Melissa Richter Bowley , Your Content Goes Here

“I have had much interaction with a host of contractors during the time I’ve lived in the Wakefield area. It was my good fortune to encounter DiStefano Brothers Construction for two different projects at my home. One dealt with a chronic leak issue, that regardless of different solutions used to rectify the issue, was never repaired correctly. DiStefano Brothers diagnosed the problem and then set about a strategy to remedy the issue. Not only was it corrected, it was done professionally and with an aesthetic approach that complements the home. More recently I had my garage floor treated with the concrete coating treatment. The finished work exceeded my expectations and is the envy of others! I recommend – without hesitation – the exceptional work of DiStefano Brothers Construction for any construction need!”

Mark Male

“I have lived in many houses and have had work done in all of them. This was definitely among the best experiences I have had. Every subcontractor and contractor who came to the house was polite and helpful and asked if I had any questions. They were neat and courteous. They worked around my challenging schedule and couldn’t have been more pleasant. And most importantly, the work looks fantastic. I will definitely use them again for any projects – this made me excited to do the next one!”
