"As the owners of a rental home, we struggled to manage an issue with our property that needed to be taken care of as soon as possible.  Living far from this location made it difficult.  I called Kevin, and he and his staff managed a very "less-than-glamourous" task without complaint or hesitation.  No job is too difficult for Kevin.  He is a genious when it comes to problem solving.  He has boundless creativity and the skills to make it happen!  Kevin willingly takes on challenges start-to-finish, he is helpful, kind, and trustworthy.  I will call Kevin for any property maintenance, upgrades & improvements that I need with our house in NH.  Thank you Kevin! "

"Finding Kevin Cote through Service Magic has been a stroke of good fortune beyond imagining. I was blissfully ignorant of the extensive water damage to my old house until I purchased a new washer and dryer, only to learn that my bathroom/utility room floor was sinking. Before he restored the floor in that room, I found that the sill of a neighboring room was also decayed. Monday morning, soon after I called to tell him what I had discovered over the weekend, he arrived and tackled the sill, completing it in record time. He followed suit with the damaged floor, restoring the utility room and even improving upon it. While he was working on that major restoration project (which was finished in just two days), I discovered that my bay window was decayed and moldy and had to be replaced. I now have a creatively transformed bedroom with casement windows and a beautiful built-in cedar chest. As I write, he is working on replacing an old kitchen window that had also been damaged by water, yet another very challenging situation. All the while, he has been very resourceful, personable, conscientious, and honest about everything involved, turning a nightmare into a positive reality in three rooms of my house. I cannot imagine anyone else handling these serious problems so skillfully and patiently--and with such empathy!  He is a true professional in every sense, and his work is very reasonably priced; he provides detailed estimates and invoices, too. He pays very careful attention to detail and takes genuine pride in doing an excellent job. I highly recommend him for any project, no matter how serious; you will be so glad you chose him to do the job!"

--- Jim Creamer, Allston, MA.

I am happy to write this recommendation for Kevin Cote. Kevin has worked on several projects at my
home in Sanbornton. The projects
included rebuilding two sets of stairs, reframing, removing and replacing a
large slider, reframing a wall to install double hung windows, and installing
ice shields at the roof line. Kevin and
his crew completed each job from framing to interior and exterior finish work,
and completed each job on schedule and on budget.   In each case, Kevin displayed a high degree
of professionalism and focus on doing the right job.

"Several years ago I had Kevin build a garage.  He is very knowledgeable when it comes to town codes and that made inspections so smooth and problem free.


He was very attentive to my requests which made the project easy for me to be satisfied.  He has very competent people that work with him.  The electrician did a great job of powering up the garage and additional items in the house.


Kevin listens and follows up after the job is done.  It’s not easy to earn my trust but Kevin did that very quickly. " ---- Raphael Krasa, Freedom, NH
