Reviews & Testimonials
★★★★★ - "The team of Bostonian remodeling made a great job in our house. It was our first renovation with a contractor, my husband has always done the work himself. We were certainly not the easiest couple to work with!!!! But we all succeeded to manage and today are super happy with the results. The budget and delivery time ( my obsession) were respected. My husband that can be defined as a perfectionist, speaks today about Agui's work as "correct", which in his mouth, corresponds to a five stars review! So yes, we recommend Agui and the Bostonian and remodeling team, very happy to have work with them! The scope of work was: demolition of the second floor, installation of 2 new bathrooms, installing 3 bedrooms, creation of closets, removing a chimney from roof to basement, installation of new roof and changing the heating system."

★★★★★ - "Agui and crew did a great job on our interior work. We hired them before for exterior work and were so pleased had them back for interior. We were not disappointed. They scheduled us in quickly and worked on the living room and kitchen. We had some late additions to add on and Agui gave us a very reasonable estimate for the additional work (a china hutch built in). In the middle of the job we had to stop the work as we had a schedule conflict and they worked around it. Agui is very good to work with. The quality was excellent as well. Thanks."

★★★★★ - "Excellent!"
★★★★★ - "We decided to go with Bostonian Remodeling to paint our house because when bid, Agui offered to accomplish more than any other person who bid the job - both on the painting and the carpentry on the house - for a very good price. We are very glad we did. At every step Agui and his crew made sure they delivered on what he promised and accommodated additional details I asked to be done. They helped us with painting suggestions we hadn't even thought of. We were going to put Thomson's water seal on the deck but Agui suggested that they sand and stain it to get a better effect without charging more, and the deck looks better than ever before. They came when they said they would, and stayed the whole time till the job was done. The house turned out amazing. We will definitely use Bostonian Remodeling again on future projects. We definitely recommend them."

★★★★★ - "Everything is fabulous from the big redesign to smaller things like a great AC unit. The outside is all done with the addition of the pergola on which we are growing vines. The whole thing looks and feels great. So thanks Aggie to you and your crew for totally delivering a great product. Please share our thanks with Robbie and everyone else!"
★★★★★ - "Opening your home to a contractor and crew for a sustained period of time requires a leap of faith fraught with many challenges and possible detours. Working with Agui Desousa, and his crew from Bostonian Remodeling, has proven to be an excellent choice for designing and building our new addition and bathroom, kitchen remodel and laundry area! Working with Agui we witnessed the vision of our project come to life. The crew demonstrated high levels of workmanship in every aspect of the endeavor from framing, plastering, roofing, painting and carpentry. Agui was generous with his time, he was always available when needed and no phone calls went unanswered. The finished product has exceeded our expectations. Thank you Bostonian Remodeling."

★★★★★ - "I had reached out to 4 companies for a complete paint job and light construction on my 152 year folk victorian farm house. Agui offered the most work for a very responable price but without sacrificing quality and details. I had lead paint issues that his team of professionals were able to address because they were all certified. I also wanted to use 5 colors on my home and others were reluctant without charging additional fees for each color. Agui let me pick out what ever I wanted and even helped with reminding me to make sure I choose many variations of the main color and to check them at different times of the day due to lighting. OMG was he ever right. It made a huge difference on how all the colors looked and helped me to come to a solid decision. Agui was very good about meeting to accomodate my hectic work schedule and also excellent when in regards to returning phone calls. His staff were on time every day and worked very clean. They even made their own recommendations as to where to apply certain colors. Those recommendations and detail to attention brought my home from being the very ugly duckling in my neighborhood to now being a the show peice. My home is in a prominant spot on the Melrose end of the Felsway so numerous people were stopping by to ask the painters if my house was for sale. To this day it's still happening, which to me speaks volumes for the work Agui's team did. When I return home from weekend errands I'll often find a car pulled over admiring their work. One really important item to point out is that Agui had always reminded me that if I found anything at all wrong after the job was complete to NEVER hesitate to call him. It's almost a year later and he still tells me this. I have to admit when I pull up to my home everyday and look at how amazing it turned out, I just can't believe I live there! "

- "We have used Agui and his crew for a number of different jobs - painting, plastering, brick re-mounting, foundation work, glass replacement, and more. He has always been extremely attentive to detail and every job he's done has been excellent. He's a great problem solver, easy to work with, very attentive to cost, and he sticks to his estimates. He's got a crew that's trustworthy, friendly, and clean. And...Agui is always at the other end of the phone, e-mail, etc. You won't be waiting to hear back from him! I learned about Agui from a friend who also was very happy with his work, and have now recommended him to my neighbor...and would be more than pleased to recommend him and his team to anyone."Naomi Hitchcock, Painting and Plastering in Lexington MA
"My wife and I hired Agui and Bostonian Painting to finish an unfinshed basement in our townhouse. It started as a concrete room and it was transformed into office space, a living room and finished strorage. The team of builders, electricians and finish carpenters was on time, efficient, and always neat. Their work was outstanding and I would (and have!) recommend Bostonian Painting to anyone looking to enhance the value of their home with quality work. The price was fair and the job came in on budget and on time. Agui even helped with the permiting process and was always on top of things and right on schedule."
Matt G., Basement Finishing, Brighton, MA
"We recently hired Agui at Bostonian Painting to finish our basement. He and his team were AMAZING!! They helped us make the most of the space in our basement, and handled the entire permitting process for us. Agui was always stopping by to check on his team and how things were going. He was on schedule, his workers were reliable and extremely courteous and considerate (I can't tell you how much I appreciated that, especially with a newborn in the house), and he gave us a very reasonable quote. What's even more impressive is that his estimate turned out to be right on the money. He even gave us a gift when our daughter was born--I don't think many contractors do that! I would definitely recommend Agui and his team to anyone looking to have work done on their home."

"I've probably had five different painters in my homes over the past ten years and I wouldn't use anybody else now but Bostonian Remodeling. They get the job done on time, and they clean up nicely."

★★★★★ - "I am a general contractor in the Bedford area and Agui Desouza does several things that are important to me and set him apart. He schedules appointments promptly, shows up on time and gives clear written proposals when he says he will. When it comes time to do the work, Agui and his team do a professional job every time and that is why he has quickly become a valuable part of my team."
