Personal Reviews of Connecticut Valley Homes
Bonnie Cappucci from Manchester, CT
From the time of delivery to the present we have enjoyed our new home. It was a pleasure working with Connecticut Valley Homes and the various crews.
Vektra Industries, Llc from Niantic
My CVH home was built in 2004. From its inception, the design experience from the CVH staff was a pleasurable one. Communication between us was very supportive when I had some questions/ concerns. The whole process went very smoothly. Many of my friends and relatives cannot believe that the house wasn't "stick built" on site. The house is well built and very efficient as well as impressive. I am extremely satisfied with the home and the whole experience.
Lorna McLaughlin from Lyme
I must tell you that I have a lot of friends who built houses. They all went through the stick building process. The horror stories were abundant and some were almost beyond belief. At the time we built our house, I was going through cancer treatment. In addition my husband and I had just moved from the Philadelphia area a few months before. Connecticut Valley Homes not only did a superb high quality job in every detail, they made it a pleasurable process, even with chemotherapy. All the little details that I asked for they executed perfectly. They were welcoming, accommodating and boy is it nice to have a hard and fast price and delivery date! I would give them 10 stars if I could!
George & Jane Mello from Richmond, RI
We have been in our Connecticut Valley home for 10 years now. The design, construction and building process were all wonderful experiences. The quality of workmanship & construction are excellent. True to their word the personnel at Connecticut Valley Homes called to check our satisfaction after one year and repair or replacement was completed. We still love our home and are very happy that we chose Connecticut Valley as our contractor.
meredith platt from rhode island
I just located the survey CVH sent after our home was built several years ago. I was so angry after I filled it out that I didn't send it. However, now that it pops up again, I notice the things I checked and feel it is worthwhile to pass it on. Haven Homes seems to build a good house. We should have worked with them directly. However, I rated every aspect of the finishing "POOR". It would take too long to explain each but would be glad to upon inquiry by a prospective homebuilder: lead carpenter (there were many), interior finish (never finished), exterior finish (mistakes, especially on porch deck), service department (poor service, no service), communication with CVH staff after home was set (what communication?), quality compared to the models (poor to fair). I would NOT recommend CVH to anyone. Chances of this review making the website? Nil
Response from Cathy Taylor at Connecticut Valley Homes
I am one of the owners of Connecticut Valley Homes and was dismayed to read Meredith's review. Customer satisfaction is extremely important to us. Our warranty service was completed on 9/15/08 and the paperwork signed by Meredith notes that all the items on her list were completed to her satisfaction except the fireplace, which was serviced at a later date. In addition, we send a survey to every customer after they have moved into their new home and have used that feedback over the last 29 years to continually improve and better serve those who have chosen us as their builder. If Meredith had sent the survey years ago, her concerns would have been brought to our attention sooner ... but it certainly isn't too late. I contacted Meredith and her son on 10/20/10 (no response yet) and look forward to finding out what the issues are and working together to resolve them.
Response from Meredith Platt from Rhode Island
I responded to Cathy Taylor at CVH at length, detailing all they did and the money they cost me. I requested that this website print my whole letter. If they do not, I invite anyone interested to contact me at and I will email it to you. I do not want you or CVH to think a friendly note will "resolve" my "issues." Be informed and Beware!
