Working with Rock Star was amazing. They were reliable, responsive, easy to work with! They did high quality work that was on time and on budget. I would say the service they provided was well above and beyond our expectations.

Rock Star Renovation truly showed their ability to “bang” out a big project in a short amount of time. Over the course of 3 short days, they demolished and rebuilt an expanded server room and built a private client conference room within our office space. The job was completed on time and on budget. They went above and beyond even fixing some existing cosmetic flaws on adjoining walls. Thanks for your hard work and dedication seeing this project through to the end.

Enter Rock Star Renovation... From the start, talking with Genny was easy, straight-forward and comfortable. She did all she could to work within my new budget but still built me a place I could feel good about and rent. Genny could answer any question or concern I had. She always had creative and intelligent solutions. Her comprehensive knowledge of all the phases of construction never fails to impress people, even hardened trade professionals. Her sense of design is impeccable and she makes the most out of even the smallest and dullest spaces. Moreover, she’s extremely picky about the people she hires. Her entire crew is hard-working, professional, honest and excellent at what they do. The Rock Star crew is steady and always a pleasure to have around.
I recommend Rock Star wholeheartedly. They totally changed the course of my renovation and turned a disaster into a beautiful home - better than I had even imagined. Genny’s on budget, on time, and she’s always honest and up-front about what’s happening. They lived up to their name and their slogan—they rock and turned a nightmare into a dream. I can’t imagine there’s a better contractor out there. Thank you Rock Star!

Kerry was fantastic to work with. She came in and had so many great ideas that we had not even thought of. We were blown away. She was always attentive and responded to our questions in a timely manner. I would highly recommend anyone to work with Kerry in the future

Rock Star Renovation lives up to it’s name. These contractors ROCK! The finished product ROCKS! Working with them has been a pure delight. I’m an acupuncturist and they renovated a new commercial space for me. Genny and the crew are so creative and innovative. They’re not just contractors, they are artists and were instrumental partners in designing my new office. They took my dreams to the next level with their creativity, skill and expertise. I was working on a budget and was pretty apprehensive and concerned about the limitations that would create, however, Rock Star made all my dreams come true AND MORE! They so know what they’re doing and provided me with incredibly helpful feedback and suggestions - all of which we implemented into the design. They put up sound-proofed walls, built out several rooms, including an office and kitchen area, replaced the ugly carpet with gorgeous hard wood floors (Genny’s suggestion and it’s the first thing people compliment when they walk in - I was thinking laminate, so glad Genny saved me from that mistake!) and were all around delightful to work with. Like, I missed them when the job was done. Their work speaks for itself - I’ve had so many clients and neighbors walk in and ask for their information. Rock Star rocks hard!

I hired Genevieve Pavitt and her crew to turn a rotten old workshop into a terrific little guesthouse. They emptied years of crap out of it, gutted it, rebuilding the roof and front wall, rewiring electricity and heating/plumbing, installing new floors, etc, complete indoor details from start to finish. The transformation is gorgeous! And the experience I had working with Genny and all the professionals on her team has been just great. She’s super knowledgeable, helpful, kind and (this is the best part) a total straight-shooter. I can’t say enough good things. Licensed and Insured.

I recently hired Genny and her crew to install a dishwasher in my kitchen. There was no existing unit so all the electrical and plumbing work had to be done from scratch. She gave me a great quote and stuck with it when the job turned out to be more complicated than expected. They’re licensed and insured, and the finished product looks great. I highly recommend!

I can’t speak highly enough of Genny and her team. They did my shop in February and put down a new floor, re-did all of the lighting and made lots and lots of little changes to the space. Genny is great at understanding what her clients are looking for and has a great eye for design and detail. Her whole team went out of their way to make sure that my shop was perfect and that I had nothing to worry about. The whole project only took a couple of weeks and was infinitely less stressful and I was anticipating. I can say with confidence that I will definitely be hiring Rock Star Renovation for all of my future projects.

We had a great experience with Genny. We hired rock star renovation to a big project on our house. We renovated our kitchen, living room, bathroom, 3 bedrooms and hallway. Majority of the work was gutting and a complete rebuild. Our end result was above our expectation.
We first renovated our basement with another contractor and ended up very dissapointed. We were then given a recommendation to Rock Star and then had Genny in our house the next day after calling her. She came into the house with an enthusiastic attitude and a lot of great ideas to add on to what we were already planning. She lead us to add parts to the project that we never would have surmised yet she always was very mindful of our budget. I could tell she was trying to make this a great renovation but was always cognizant of not pushing us beyond what we could afford. She really treated this project like it was her own house and I could see the excitement she held with approaching each part.
Our kitchen involved a complete gut and we turned a closed concept into an open. She was able to put in a huge island that can now double as a ping pong table. One idea she added to the kitchen was to put heated floors (which we are loving during this particularly record breaking cold winter). All the work is high quality.
Our living room floor was sanded and stained to a nice grey tone.
Genny’s carpenter put in a custom designed railing that looks amazing.
Our bathroom is the pinnacle aspect of the project. It was gutted. Genny enlarged the bathroom. This allowed us to go from only a shower/tub to having a whirlpool tub and a walk-in shower.
The painting around the house was all done with Benjamin Moore paint and looks wonderful.
She took out our window/wall unit air conditioner and gave us slimline HVAC system so we now can heat/cool rooms separately.
One of the more unique but eye catching part of our project was making what some would label as “catification”. She put a catwalk on our living room wall that anyone that sees it first compliments it as a great looking shelf, but then are impressed when we tell them it is a catwalk. It runs the length of the wall with steps that lead up to it. She even added cove lighting to it for a little extra pizzaz. One of her coolest ideas was adding a seperate entrance to our bedroom for the cats. This allows us to keep our bedroom door closed when we have guests or when we want to just turn the air conditioner on in the bedroom and still allow our cats to come and go without annoying us to open the door.
Another one of her great ideas was putting in a skylight that opens electronically and gives us amazing amount of natural light.
All in all we are incredibly happy with the end result. We enjoyed working with Genny and her crew. They were respectful of the neighbors and our time. The quality is superb. I would hire her again in a heart beat for any future projects and would recommend her highly to anyone who wants a great contractor who always seems to enjoy what she is doing.
