I have worked with Orchard Hills Construction on a number of residential projects. Most were highly detailed, historic structures. I would say without hesitation that the attention to detail, follow-through and clear communication provided by Orchard Hills Construction made each and every project a delight to work on.

I would strongly recommend Orchard Hills Construction for my projects.

Orchard Hills gut-renovated and reconstructed a large portion of our center hall colonial home. You work with your builder for a long time and there is a LOT of detail. You want to be able to happily work and communicate with them daily, and Deb and Brent made this easy. They are smart, easy-going and knowledgeable on EVERYTHING. To break it down:
1. Business. Orchard Hills maintained clear and concise information on every detail and cost of our project. They kept meticulous track of our work and any additions to the original scope of the project on a very easy-to-follow spreadsheet. This started from when they bid on our project...we didn't get a $xyz bid in a vacuum...they provided details for all of their figures. For any change orders, they gave us a quote so we could consider the price/timing. Everything had to be approved by us before they would act on it. As a result, we always felt like we were in control of our project and what we were spending. There were never any surprises.
2. Craftsmanship. Orchard Hills' attention to detail is incredible. They do things the right way, not the quick way. They created amazing coffered ceilings, trim and built-ins for us. We wanted to install a very complicated fireplace and they brainstormed the right way to implement our design. Our house is a reflection of their efforts and this fact is not lost on them at any point.
3. Customer service. The entire team is available at almost any time via email, phone or text. They are exceptionally responsive and very down-to-earth. Every single person on the team who we worked with always made time for us. Deb made sure we were on track with all of our decorative choices and provided resources for where to shop, etc. She and Brent were both great at giving pressure-free advice on what they have seen work historically...from plumbing to paint. Brent spent countless hours with us discussing designs and options. No matter how many questions we had, we never felt rushed. They were very responsive to needs/deadlines we had on our end. We always felt that we were important.
4. Coordination. Deb and Brent worked very closely with us, our interior designers, our architect, our kitchen providers and our town offices (permits, inspections, etc). Once everybody was connected, it was truly seamless for us, which was invaluable to us as working parents.
We LOVED working with Orchard Hills. I cannot recommend them more highly!

'French Country' Homeowner

client review

We hired Orchard Hills as our general contractor for our custom built home. Our experience with them exceeded our expectations. While nothing is ever perfect, Orchard Hills' made what could have been a stressful experience exciting and fun. Their attention to detail, holding their sub contractors to a very high standard, and constant communication helped I think sets them apart. The project met the deadlines originally discussed and came in on budget. It was quite obvious that Orchard Hills takes great pride in their product. When ever obstacles occurred, they would set up an on site meeting with us, themselves and the architect to discuss best possible options. Our overall experience was exceptional.

'Victorian Estate' Homeowner

client review

Orchard Hills was awesome. They helped us restore and improve an 1880 historic home - which was a VERY complex project involving structural changes while maintaining the integrity of the house. They are trustworthy, super organized (excel project plans), hold themselves to a high standard in delivery and customer service. Deb was personally hands-on with key selection decisions, and Brett was onsite every day. Their foreman Pete was the best. And they were all a pleasure to work with. We would not hesitate to recommend them.

'After Sandy' Homeowner

client review

Brent, Deb and staff at OHDC have exceeded our expectations. The time they have spent meeting with us, their attention to detail and commitment to doing things the right way has been impressive. They always have a positive outlook and attitude and spend an incredible amount of time thinking about the correct and best solution to deal with issues as they arise. Deb has been incredible with keeping us on track with making decisions (bath fixtures, paint and floor colors etc..) and on budget. There are no short cuts taken with these guys. They pride themselves, deservedly so, on quality results. Our project was rebuilding and expanding our summer home damaged by Super storm Sandy. We are not year round residents at the shore so were only able to check on the progress periodically. It would have been easy to cut corners or days on the job since we were not around. Our neighbors have commented multiple times how hard working, courteous and tidy the various workmen have been over the past 7 months since construction began. Our home is nearly complete and we couldn't be more thrilled with the results!! We recommend Brent, Deb and crew unconditionally!

client review

Orchard Hills remodeled my 3 bedroom ranch into a craftsman 5 bedroom and did a terrific job. They stayed on scheduled... actually completing the project earlier than expected. Had one issue but I was my fault... ordered a 5 ft chandelier but couldn't fit it into the house. Brent came up with a solution and his subs had no problem installing it. Deb was extremely helpful in all design aspects (stonework for front of house, fixtures for bathrooms, colors for the home...) Brent and Deb are a terrific team and have a great group of subcontractors. I am so happy with our home and definitely recommend Orchard Hills!

I highly recommend Orchard Hills, they did an excellent job on our project start to finish. We did a full renovation of our entire home including a Gourmet Kitchen, Master Bath, 2 plus bathrooms and a finished basement. Their knowledge and design expertise made the job go smoothly. Their attention to detail is what really sets them apart. Their design department helped me pick out all the finishes in the house. The job site was kept organized and their employees on site were very professional and courteous. There was always a foreman on site to answer any questions. The estimate we received was extremely detailed so there were no grey areas on cost. The job was completed on time and on budget.
I would not hesitate to hire the again!

Orchard Hills renovated our 125 year old home, including the kitchen, family room, master bedroom/bath, mud room and garage. They helped us update our home while preserving its unique detail and character. Orchard Hills was able to repurpose doors, cabinets and fixtures as well as reproduce moldings and woodwork. And although any home renovation can be stressful, they made it very easy for us. Their hard work and dedication did not end when our renovation was complete. We can still call them with questions and suggestions. We highly recommend Orchard Hills.

We used Orchard Hills for a construction project that included a new kitchen, mud room, master bath, a new second floor laundry room and a bedroom. The job was done on time, and within the budget. Both Debbie and Brent listened to what we wanted to do and how much we were budgeting for our project. They came back with a detailed plan that was exactly what we were looking for. They helped with any decision big or small that we asked for input on. Their attention to detail is second to NONE!! Would recommend Orchard Hills for any project !

Orchard Hills did an extensive renovation (almost a complete tear down) on our home. The quality of the work was exceptional and happily met our expectations for precision and perfection. The owner always aimed to please and offered terrific advice along the way; his crew was always friendly, cooperative and respectful of our needs. I am realtor and often get client requests for builders' names. Without reservation, I highly recommend Orchard Hills to them because we are so delighted with the finished project and continue years later to get compliments on our home.

Short Hills, NJ

client review

The work Orchard Hills did for me was extensive. It was a project done in two phases and extended over a period of two years. They reconstructed more than 50% of my nearly 100 year old home including a complete revamp of the basement, 2 full baths, 2 half baths and the kitchen. It was a lot of work!!
From the beginning bid until the final certificate of occupancy the Ingersolls were always available for questions and explanations of the work process. Their crews were unfailingly polite and respectful and incredibly neat as were their subs. The quality of the work was outstanding and they have been back to fix any problems that have arisen. I would use them again and would recommend them to friends.

New Providence, NJ

client review

We hired Orchard Hills Design and their team after a tree landed in our house during Hurricane Sandy. We were impressed immediately with Brent's ability to guide us through decision making, his in depth knowledge of construction, his team's attention to detail and superb craftsmanship. Time management was important to us since we were living in our home through construction. They were courteous, neat and punctual. Brent's estimate both dollar and timing-wise was realistic; he was on-site daily, walking us through the entire project, step by step. An added bonus to this team is Deb, who brings the highest level of design, creativity, and professionalism. She has a unique ability to pull all the details together regarding resources for accessories, light fixtures, bathroom/kitchen fixtures, marble/stone, tiles, cabinets, color coordination-you name it! We highly recommend Orchard Hills Design and Construction, they deliver on their promises.

Orchard Hills did a total gut and renovation of our 1920's house. The are professional, timely, perfectionists, concerned with quality, design and functionality. They worked hand in hand with our architect and kitchen designer to build our dream home. Their work on our custom built-ins, coffered ceiling, wainscoting and trim work was all top notch. This company is trustworthy and customer-oriented...they even helped me choose lighting fixtures. I can't recommend them more highly. If I do a renovation again, there is no other company I would even consider.

Grace Baker Interiors

professional relationship

OHDAC renovation on our 1920 Gothic Revival was seamless. The work is exquisite be it refitted plumbing, the gutting, reframing and installation of the kitchen, mud room and powder room, the HVAC system that was installed and is invisible to the eye. Brent, Deb and all the men who worked on the house are supremely talented and aesthetically inclined. They took a house that everyone wanted to knock down and made it beautiful and functional for a family. Every person was a delight to be around and the project was made more complicated because we were in the house. They are responsive, proactive and perfectionists there were no short cuts. Additionally, the planning that was done to prevent redundancies was exhaustive and we appreciated it very much. The whole experience was incredibly positive. I was genuinely sad the day everyone moved on to the next job but, very excited for the day then they come back and renovate the second and third floors and the bathrooms. These are real craftsmen and wonderful people as well. I cannot say enough great things about them.
