Recognition from some of our clients:


"We recently hired Donaldson Builders to renovate our 100-year old home, including door/window replacement, and floor leveling. They provided detailed estimates for each part of the project and explained options in materials/finishes that could modify the price in order to fit our budget.  Henry was very friendly on the job site and walked us through what was happening on a daily basis."

Drew and Laura, Belmont, MA


"Donaldson Builders is great  -  they have completed a number of home renovation services for us from 2006 to present. They are  intelligent, thoughtful, thorough, and terrific at problem-solving. Donaldson Builders is our "go to" contractor for any home-related issues."

Bernice, Cambridge, MA


"My wife and I chose Donaldson Builders to renovate our kitchen and to install and refinish our wood floors, in addition to other projects on a very tight schedule.  The kitchen came out great! They were meticulous about blending stains to make the old flooring look the same as the new, and our floors are now beautiful.  Not only is Donaldson Builders’ work top notch, but their knowledge, personality, and efficiency make them the only contractor my family will use."

Matt and Lindsay, Newton, MA


"Bill and Henry are highly skilled builders and professional construction managers. They know the business inside and out, pay careful attention to the smallest details, while keeping an eye on the big picture and working with clients to value-engineer projects within the available resources. As the client liaison, Bill is a great communicator - a skill not always found among the construction trades, but very necessary to successfully complete projects. Donaldson Builders is a notch above the rest, you can trust them to take good care of your home or business."

Eric, Cambridge, MA

"Donaldson Builders created a basement office and entrance for me, built out my sons’ rooms and storage spaces, did window work, and more over the years as we have gradually improved our house. We have consistently found the work to be exceptional and well-suited to our needs. In addition, we have valued their critical pre-construction thinking and planning that make the difference between a great project and an average one. Because of our high confidence in Bill and Henry’s knowledge and their overall skills as tradesmen, we always consult them before doing any work at our house."

Craig Kelley, City Councilman, Cambridge, MA


Community-based projects:

"Bill Donaldson is a thoughtful and highly experienced contractor and carpenter who does the work well and finishes on time.  He has assisted me several times in teaching  volunteers how to do energy-saving work at home and helped us write our do-it-yourself energy efficiency book.  He teaches well and manages a team thoughtfully. I would not hesitate to recommend him."

Audrey Schulman, president of  HEET (Home Energy Efficiency Team), Cambridge, MA


"My business as a construction manager and owner’s representative brings me into contact with a wide range of contractors and tradespeople. You will find none as responsible and honest as Bill Donaldson. He takes pride in his work, is very organized, shows up on time and perhaps most importantly, communicates well with his customers. When problems arise, Bill resolves them with cost effective options and good advice. Recently, he helped oversee the construction of a handicapped access ramp at a synagogue using volunteers from a local architectural program twith members of the congregation. He patiently organized and trained unskilled workers, estimated materials and gave of his own time to complete the job."
