"Carter and his crew just finished a 6 month renovation to the 1960’s house we purchased in January.  This included custom walk-in closets, updates to doors and windows, some structural surprises and a complete remodel of the kitchen and dining area.  From the first time we met Carter to discuss the job he was professional, extremely knowledgeable and, most important to us, respectful of our budget.  I knew then we could work with him and it would be a great experience.   He and his team did not disappoint.  They were experts at their craft and everyone that he brought in, from plumbers to electricians and painters were top notch in their respective fields.  Carter was on premises every day and available for questions at any time.  He was generous with his time and expertise when taking us around for appliances, carpet, kitchen finishes, etc.  Our home looks beautiful and we are ecstatic with the results.  I have already sung his praises to everyone I know and would not hesitate to use him for additional renovations coming up in the near future.  Thank you to Carter and his whole crew for making this a truly memorable undertaking."

"Carter and his team are a grade above the rest. We were referred to Carter after a storm damaged our roof and several rooms in our home. Carter not only helped us deal with the the insurance company but his team put our home back together like the storm never happened. We have tried other companies and none of them have provided the quality and professionalism as Spectrum Builders."

"I have been insuring and dealing with carpentry contractors for 20 years. I’ve seen Carter’s completed jobs on businesses and homes from Greenwich to Fairfield. Clients I have referred him to rave about the finished product. His work is superb."

"Carter and his capable crew have turned two homes for us, very dilapidated dowagers with failing systems, neglected structural items and outdated kitchens and bathes, into modern showcases.   And he did it with precision, craftsmanship, on budget and on time. He oversees an exceptional group of subs; managing for perfection and attention to details.  When structural issues confound architectural expectations, he figures out how to solve them to make the design elements work.  And he stands behind his work. Although we discovered with Carter, very few repairs even over years are necessary.   When we recently sold the first house Carter reconstructed for us, the buyer, their building inspector, property manager and architect marveled at the construction, the finishings, and the structural soundness of the house.  Thank you Carter."

"Carter and his team at Spectrum Builders are very knowledgeable, honest and dedicated to their craft. Recently, after a storm, they were extraordinary in their rush to first, cover my damage, and then to repair. I would recommend them to anyone who is interested in hiring an honest and straight forward firm to add to, or to repair damage to their home."

After thoroughly inspecting the family home for necessary improvements and repairs, the team of inspectors pointed to needed repairs on the two-story barn, probably built around 1800 and neglected for at least 40 years. The barn has also served as home to large birds, assorted ground dwelling creatures, and occasionally the neighborhood fox.On their recommendation, I sent out an S.O.S. to Carter Joffe and Spectrum Builders, LLC. After removing the accumulated debris, Carter and his professional staff set to work restoring the historic building. They fixed broken doors and windows, strengthened and fortified the foundation, bolstered sagging walls and collar-tied the expanding ceiling. They also installed additional shelving and banisters. The workers were always professional and the site was always picked up before their leaving.  The price was more than fair and the results were excellent. Job well done. Thanks Carter!"


"Carter is responsive to your inquiries, accurate with his information and absolutely reliable when it comes to getting the job done well and quickly. Thanks Carter for the jobs you have done for me in the past and the jobs I will need you for in the future. I never met a contractor I really trusted and now I have."

Spectrum builders completed our kitchen addition in April. The workmanship was up to my standards and the final fit and finish was, as expected, excellent.During the build, as with all construction on homes built in the 30s there were some unexpected obstacles these were dealt with in a professional, expedient and economical fashion.This was not the first time we have used spectrum. They have been recommended to many friends.A side note the main crew used at our home were always cordial friendly timely and well spoken along with the expected craftsmanship
Thank You
