The fact that I am working on my fifth project with Heritage Building Group should speak volumes about my experiences with, and opinion of, this organization. Working with principals, Paul McAlpine and his son and business partner, Ethan McAlpine, as well as their team of professionals, we have recently refreshed my 22-year old home. This included the buildout of a two-level, 2000 square foot addition as well as refurbishing the mother-in-law suite, master bedroom/bathroom, new wood flooring through the whole house and new windows encased in new limestone. For more entertainment they created two spectacular outdoor living areas that allowed us to carry the fun outdoors. The end result is a highly integrated, multifaceted home that looks just as it should: incredible!
Together, we have also rehabbed two smaller homes and built a 5,000+ square foot party barn from the ground up. Our fifth project together entails transitioning the barn from a party venue to a residence. Through these efforts, I have observed the varied abilities of Heritage Building Group and have come to depend upon what differentiates this company. For example:
* Communication and planning are true strengths; I am always kept “in the know “when it comes to what decisions are needed and what task or effort is coming next.
* Paul, Ethan and their team of skilled tradesmen are detailed oriented, highly focused, deadline driven and hardworking while holding themselves to the highest standards imaginable.
* The team at Heritage Building Group looks for efficiencies and innovative strategies at every turn. Ethan operated a drone to capture regular footage of our projects for both quality control and documentation purposes. Paul led the effort to research and build out a geo-thermal HVAC system which will allow us to take advantage of tax deductions and in the end, save money.
* Finally, this is a group of genuinely good people who lead with a personal touch which seems to naturally include doing whatever it takes to get the job done.
I am pleased to offer my most sincere recommendation of Heritage Building Group

The Heritage Building Group built our two-story addition in 2016 and has done smaller work for us since. We have been nothing but pleased with their work. Paul and his son Ethan are rare individuals and even rarer contractors who deliver what they promise and who are present before, during and even after a project has been completed. They are honest, hardworking and reliable, traits that you don't always find in contractors these days. They may not be the cheapest, they may not be the fastest, but they will be there to get the job done and get it done right. Highly recommended.

We can't imagine a better team to work with. Paul and Ethan have the highest standards and are committed to make the experience as easy and stress free as possible. They and the subs they work with are the gold standard! We highly recommend them!

Pool house and garage
From start to finish working with Heritage Building Group was a lot of fun. We had a vision of what we wanted, but Heritiage turned our vision into reality. From the initial estimates to the final product the process was transparent and professional. Everything that we went over in the beginning was what we got at the end with no surprises. The quality and detail that went into the project was superb and we wouldn’t change a thing.
It’s been four years since our project was completed and Paul is still taking my calls when I have questions for him!

Pool and pool house
My experience working with Paul McAlpine of Heritage Building Group has been outstanding! Our project transformed our outdoor living space into a true paradise complete with a pool, pool house, travertine patio, and fire pit. At the same time, we renovated our full basement to include a beautiful stone/tile feature wall, theater system, and kitchenette. During the six-month process, Paul was a true pleasure to work with. I found him to be honest, knowledgeable, and practical. Without fail, I could reach him quickly by phone or text. He was present at the project every single day and insured good quality craftsmanship from his subcontractors. He made the process beautifully easy for me and accommodated my changes or requests without any issues. Overall, I am extremely pleased with the final product and would not hesitate to use him again for my future projects.

Interior and exterior renovation
I have worked with Paul McAlpine of Heritage Building group so many times, I’ve lost count. That’s because whenever I have a project to do, the ONLY person who comes to mind is Paul. I have worked with other builders, and Paul breaks the mold. He’s nothing like any other builder I’ve known or any of my friends have known. To start, his quality is excellent, he’s prompt, professional, pragmatic, experienced, responsive, honest, trustworthy, reliable, runs a tight/clean job and most of all, I ALWAYS get something that is beautifully beyond my expectations at the end. There is no problem that he can’t solve. Even when the problem isn’t really his. Plain and simple, he’s just not a normal builder. He’s a great builder, and that’s not normal. If you are looking for a builder who doesn’t respond, doesn’t show up when promised, does a poor quality job, overcharges and has no clue what he is doing, then look elsewhere. Heritage is not the place for you. You will be sorely disappointed.
