“Building a house on the Massachusetts coast would challenge most people, and we were no exception. Of course we wanted the highest quality, but we also wanted a unique, contemporary design. Somehow we found our way to Colclough Construction, and they made all the difference.
The Colclough team did an amazing job…from the first shovel of dirt to the last coat of paint. Every day we asked them to step outside the bounds of traditional New England design, and they solved every crazy problem–like figuring how to mount the architectural ceiling panels that make our great room as quiet as a cozy kitchen.
Colclough Construction made the experience of building our house an unmitigated pleasure. I love those guys.”

“When Steve Colclough from Colclough Construction put together his pricing, it was clear and concise. Every item had a number and it was easier to understand than proposals we received from other general contractors. We literally took the original house down to the studs and we added additional spaces and a carriage house with a connector. There were many details, a lot of woodwork and restoration of some original details. The Colclough team did a phenomenal job with everything. Steve communicated with us throughout the process and kept us completely in the loop. We can truly say that there is an honest contractor out there. He stayed on budget and the house was done when promised. We highly recommend Colclough Construction. They were a pleasure to work with from start to finish.”

“This note is long overdue as the last 6 months have been quite a whirlwind between moving into our beautiful new home and then welcoming our new baby – but that is no excuse!  We wanted to thank you, Steve, for the incredible job you and your team did to make our dream a reality.  We know it was not the easiest property (to say the least) and you not only exceeded all expectations on quality – you did it within our relatively tight budget.  I’m sure there are very few GC’s if any at all that could have managed that.  But most importantly, you made the project fun and as stress free as possible.  We feel lucky that both you and Sally (and all of your rock star subs) worked on this project and brought our vision to life.
We always recommend your team when a friend mentions a potential construction project.”
-Emily and Chris Cotter, Cohasset, MA
“When I was looking to build my new home, I did a lot of homework on who I should choose to be my general contractor.  After talking to my architect and several people “in the know” I settled on Colclough Construction and I was glad I did.  From their quality work to their professionalism I was never disappointed.  They were always available to answer questions, offer advice and when they finished the project, it was exactly the way I had envisioned it when construction started.
Their quality subcontractors were always on the job when required and handled any last-minute changes willingly and efficiently.  I cannot praise Steve and the rest of the Colclough family enough and would not hesitate to use them in the future.”
-Tim Tedeschi, Duxbury, MA
“We’ve worked with Steve and Mike over the last eight years, building our dream home and then accompanying carriage house.  In addition to always being a pleasure with which to work, they have always met our expectations regarding budget and timing and throughout that 8-year period, always been available to help us fine-tune our creations.  We trust their judgment and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending others to work with them.  The Colclough’s are an A+ team.”
– Julie and Briscoe Rodgers, Cohasset, MA
“To everyone at Colclough Construction, an enthusiastic “Thank you!” Not only did you deliver a home of the highest quality precisely on time and as agreed, but you made the building process an enjoyable experience. We have undertaken a number of construction projects over the years, and can honestly say that this was the smoothest and most stress-free of them all.
The professionalism, collaboration with the architect, and excellent project management that Steve and his staff provided throughout the building process were the cornerstones of this successful project. The subcontractors that worked at the site were all of the highest caliber, and the craftsmanship and quality of their work was evident in the finished product. It was clear that each had worked with Colclough Construction for a very long time, and this is testament to Steve’s commitment to partnering with craftsmen who deliver high quality work and treating them well.
Throughout the entire year of the project the job site was highly organized, and every day the crew left it clean and ready for the next day’s work. There was never an idle day where we were left wondering if someone would be on site. Thank you, again, for a wonderful experience and a beautiful home.”
– Peter and Susan Murley, Cohasset, MA
“In the many building and renovation projects I have undertaken, it has been the exception rather than the rule to work with a general contractor whose work is not only exemplary but whose integrity is exceptional.  Steve Colclough is the exception.  The entire process of a gutting and complete renovation of my 1850’ s home on a private cove in Cohasset was enjoyable and satisfying and I am extremely happy with the result.
Steve is friendly, business-like and a pleasure to work with. He and his crew worked seamlessly with the architect and other subcontractors.  My involvement was welcomed and rewarding, though not necessary because Steve approached my project as though he were working on his own home.  His suggestions saved me money, and his attention to detail was impeccable.
Steve and his crew always operated with the upmost professionalism.  They stand by their work and were responsive even when minor fixes were necessary to maintain optimal quality.  I subsequently hired Steve to renovate a barn on the same property and had the same, highly positive experience in all aspects of the job.
On the basis of these experiences, I would hire Steve and his team again without hesitation!”
– Andrea Wade, Cohasset, MA
“Colclough Construction completed a house for us recently with excellent results.  The project was completed on schedule, the sub-contractors were extremely attentive and organized, the project was kept clean from start to finish.  Susan in the office did a terrific job maintaining the flow of paper work and billing so that we knew where we stood on the budget.  Steve and his team, take pride in their work and the quality of the finish product is proof of that commitment.”
– Terrence Tedeschi, Duxbury, MA
“Many thanks for your efforts on my project.  Your firm and the men that worked there exhibited all the good things one could ask for, great craftsmanship, good attitudes, wonderful service of cooperation and fairness.  From proposal to occupancy, we could not ask for more.”
-John McLaughlin, Duxbury, MA
“Many thanks for all that you did to get our beautiful new house built.  We love everything about it!  We truly appreciate your honesty and integrity throughout the whole process – You made everything seem simple and easy, we know that wasn’t always the case.  We appreciate you and your team always going the extra mile for us and for helping us realize our dream home!”
– John and Katie Rudicus, Duxbury, MA
“Colclough Construction is a professional company that we can highly recommend due to their superior craftsmanship, honesty and reliability.  Attention to detail and management were excellent as well as Steve’s subcontractors, who were always a pleasure to have on site.  Budget, timeliness and neatness are priorities of ours and Steve and his crew exceeded our expectations.  The pride in their work shows in our renovation.”
– Candace and Bob Bouley, Wellesley, MA
“We couldn’t be happier with the renovation of our home.  Steven and his crew did an amazing job.  Steven was always on site and on schedule!  He projected that our renovation would take about 10 months and he was right on target.  The attention to detail and quality of workmanship was excellent.  We would highly recommend Colclough Construction for any scope of work.”
-Jana and John Thorbahn, Duxbury, MA
“We had a wonderful experience building our house with the Colclough Construction team.  Steve earned our respect and trust throughout the project, and we valued his commitment to being transparent with us about all aspects of our project from the moment we started, all the way through the end of the project.  Steve and his team did an outstanding job, and we highly recommend them.”

“We recently completed a major home renovation project with the Colclough Construction team, where we brought our house down to the studs, and rebuilt. The project took almost a year from start to finish. Seemingly unlike most major home renovations or new construction, our process was smooth and almost entirely stress free. We have Steve and his entire team to thank for such a wonderful experience. Unprovoked, I have had multiple people through family, friends, a plumber, a home security expert, the list goes on… tell me that “the Colcloughs are the best” – and when they say the best, of course they mean they produce a wonderful product, but more so that they are stand-up, honest people who operate with high integrity. My wife and I feel so fortunate that the Colclough team was available when we put our project out for bid and that they wanted to work with us.


The final cost of the project was right in line with expectations and the initial bid that we discussed. Any “one-offs” that did arise were easily resolved by simply having an open and honest discussion with Steve. There were a few instances during the project where my wife and I changed our mind and called an audible relative to the initial plans (a few of which were significant!) and again Steve was very flexible and accommodating.

He would assess the situation and get back to us with a range of viable options so that we could make a decision and quickly move forward, keeping the project timeline intact. We also loved the architect that we worked with, Sally Weston.  Steve and the team did a great job working with her, masterfully executing the exact vision she presented to us at the outset. I can’t imagine a contractor working better with an architect, and it is my own uninformed opinion that this collaboration is what turns good plans into a GREAT final product. Lastly, Steve and his crew worked extremely hard.  Friends and family of ours who would drive by, always commented on how hard the team was working.

I should also say we are very pleased with the final product. Everything came out even better than our lofty expectations, and frankly, we still wake up every day and feel fortunate that we get to live in such a beautiful house. All the fine details and finish carpentry came out phenomenal and I think that is really what makes the house. There was zero “cutting of corners” on the project. Steve even walked through the house near the end of the project himself, and saw something a little off that frankly I wouldn’t even have noticed and said “that’s not what we’re about” – and had it fixed right away. The entire team pays attention to and cares immensely about every little detail. Practically speaking, everything in our house works great. We have had a few small issues in the first year, but in each case, we have reached out to Steve, and it almost feels like someone showed up at our house to resolve the issue before we hung up the phone.

Overall, I can’t say enough about the entire team and our experience. I sincerely hope I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to build another house someday and I would 100% hope to work with Steve and his team again. They are everything you could ask for in a contractor: Honest, open, accurate, on time, Red Sox fans, and they produce a phenomenal product.”
