"Charlie Silva recently completed a construction project for us involving our old 1856 Cape in Taftsville. Charlie said it would "take about 4 or 5 weeks" to complete--it was done in 4 1/2 weeks. He said it would cost XX$ to complete and that was exactly what it cost. Charlie and his crew were at work each day on time and worked the work day they promised while leaving a clean, neat construction site. On top of being timely, efficient and neat the work completed was superb. This is what you would hope of all contractors who come into your home and disturb your living space however Charlie brought another dimension to the table. Charlie's "crew" consisted of his son Lucky and another young man, Ethan. I found everyone to be amazingly friendly and pleasant to have around. They worked consistently without excessive noise/music--they truly respected the space in which they were working. Actually, now that the project is completed, I kind of miss having them around!

Most projects, especially those on older homes, have bumps in the process or the unforeseen. When something of this nature came up Charlie always seemed to have a good solution--indeed he had a number of good suggestions that varied from the provided plans that greatly enhanced the end result. The whole process was carried out in the manner promised, at the estimated cost and in a totally non invasive way. I thank Charlie, Lucky and Ethan for the work they did for us and the manner in which they did it.

I would highly recommend Charles Silva Master Builders for any job one might be considering. I am looking forward to Charlie building our barn next year!"

Gratefully, P. Breuleux


FROM:Town of Carver Inspection Department
RE:Mr. Charles Silva Jr.“To Whom It May Concern:

As the Building Inspector to the town of Carver for the past
six (6) plus years, I have observed and reviewed the work
done by Mr. Silva Jr. on many occasions.

I dont freely give recommendations regarding contractors, but I find Mr. Silva Jr. to be an exception to my personnel policy.

Whether you are a homeowner or a governmental official, I have always found Mr. Silva Jr. to be very professional in his dealings with me and my office over the years. Regarding his work, I had always found his framing very well constructed and his finish work something to be pleased with in regards to its installation and final appearance.

If a code question would arise, he would be open to reviewing the appropriate section(s) of the building code with me and address the issue in a professional manner if it did not favor his view.

In all, this is a person I find to be a very good contractor and a real professional in a field that is a rarity to find.

To Whom It May Concern,

In the Spring of 2002, our house burned down to the ground. After settling with the insurance company, we hired an architect to design a home that would reflect our family's personality and lifestyle. It was a Maine shingled cottage with a wrap around porch situated on a lake in Massachusetts. Plan in hand, we approached several custom home builders and in the end chose Charles Silva, Knowing the builder and his reputation for quality, he was the right choice. Silva was knowledgeable professional and
he and his wife Jenny facilitated every aspect of our project's evolution including the disposal of the materials from our burnt out structure, the labyrinthine permitting process, and hiring and coordination of master craftsmen. Silva was on site throughout the building process and communicated with us about every detail in the construction. We were most pleased when we moved into the house. . . . it was everything we had dreamed.

“I am writing to Thank You for your admirable workmanship. When I decided to make a change in my hallway flooring, you took the time to sit down with me and show me all of the possibilities I could chose from. You went through all of the pros and cons, price ranges and quality of each product. You did not try to talk me into one product over another. I made the decision. And the best decision I made was to choose you for a job well done. You have the highest of standards for your work.
