    We needed to replace 3 Vellux skylights which were about 35 years and also needed a new roof. Upon researching companies on the web chose/called three. Empire 1 Home Improvements, Wilmington, MA made the best impression from the beginning. The owner Clinton Galvin, replied immediately, plus online reviews were excellent so we chose Empire One. Clinton set us up with Jim S, who met with us to discuss the details of the work and answer all our questions. He was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The quote came fast, we paid a deposit, signed the quote and then Andy D. reached out to schedule the work. He was also responsible and easy to deal with. Everyone we dealt with responded promptly, something which is much appreciated and often lacking in many businesses. Ours was a 2-day job. Jim S. showed up the first day with boards to put under the dumpster—to us another indication of a company that cares and provides quality work. The foreman, Angel, arrived and then the 4-man crew. Angel and the crew were great. There was also Nick on the crew and he came right over when he noticed us coming outside to ask a few questions. All were polite and respectful and they all wore their masks when near us. The crew got down to business quickly and worked hard and steadily. There was no loud music, no loud talking—it all seemed like a well-oiled machine; efficient and organized. Angel had to enter the house to fine tune the placement of the 3 skylights and then carefully, taking his time, caulked inside as needed to fill in some gaps left by the removal of the old windows. He also re-leaded the chimney with care. The roof and windows look great! I also should mention, clean up was just as impressive. I’ve had roofs replaced in the past, finding nails and debris all over the yard. We found hardly anything. We tend to look for quality and as I always say, you get what you pay for. A neighbor had his roof shingled a while ago by another company and he was so concerned with getting a low price and guess what, he had problems with his roof and had to have it redone. All said, we found Empire 1 OUTSTANDING from start to finish and would highly recommend them to anyone wanting quality work at a reasonable price. We’d use Empire 1 again in a heartbeat. Bob, P.E.

    We are so pleased with all of our renovations and the Empire1 crew's professionalism. Jim was wonderful, Angel and his team did an amazing job on our very interestingly shaped roof and our amazing new skylights. We had no idea what a difference the solar blinds would make in our daily lives, we enjoy them so much! Eric and Nick were especially detailed with our new windows and wall repair to remove the old wall a/c unit. You can't tell there was ever a hole through the wall! We are so glad that we put our trust in Empire1, we saved a long time for these updates and from my first email to ask for a quote through the quote process and the work itself all of our questions were answered and we can't say enough how highly we recommend your company!

    They replaced my skylight window with one that can open/close using solar power! They told me of the tax credit I would get if I chose solar power and I'm very grateful for that information. And, the quality of the work was excellent! I would recommmend to friends.

    AMAZING!!! We had old skylights that were leaking and needed more then just a replacement. Our windows where so out of date they where not a standard size and needed extra carpentry work done. When I came home everything was all done, clean, and they even replastred drywall that was not in the best shape. They also brought in my amazon boxes hahaha. Best experience :)

    We had our gutters replaced and leaf guard installed with Empire 1 Home Improvements. They were very professional and knowledgeable from the estimate to the installation. The crew was great and all of the work was completed in the expected time frame. I would highly recommend using Empire and I'll be calling them in the future for any additional work that we need done (roofing, siding, decks, maybe even a new skylight!).

    After a horrible experience with another skylight installer, Empire 1 came in and took out the prior poor work and did a great job installing a new one. They were friendly and great communicators and the workmanship was great. Could not recommend them enough.

    Empire1 Home Improvement did a great job replacing our roof and 5 skylights and installing blinds. Clinton Galvin, the owner and Andy did a great job explaining the project and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. The staff were polite and courteous and did an impeccable job. I highly recommend Empire1 for their high quality work. I will definitely use them for future projects.

    Empire1 from Wakefield, Mass. provided amazing work results with replacing my roof and 4 skylights! Clinton Galvin took his time in thoroughly explaining everything along with making cost-effective solutions to our needs. Not only did Empire1 commit to the work needed, but went above and beyond with adding materials and building a new chimney chase cover! The staff was professional and courteous… I would highly recommend Empire1 to anyone who needs quality roofing for their home or business!

    Empire 1 has now done two jobs for me and I highly recommmend their services. The crew was on time, did their job well, and my home was left impeccably clean, but the best part of all is that my skylights and roof no longer leak. A great company all around.
