“My first impression of Corvus was that it seemed like a very professional company with a real personal touch.”
What started as an unfinished basement in a Beacon Hill house built in 1927 became an Airbnb money-maker. See full story and pictures here.
“We had talked to a couple of different firms and when we talked to Denis it felt like just the right fit. His method of communication with us as well as understanding what we needed right away looking at the space and really getting what we were trying to do.
Denis and the other guys that we were working with were so easy to talk with and I really appreciated that every day, every day he would update us on what was going to happen and where we were in the process and what decisions needed to be made now and the next week and the upcoming week.
The quality of the work was evident from day one. We’d come downstairs every day when we’d get home and check out what had happened and for demolition and the amount of construction we had going on in the space everything was cleaned up every day everything was put away every day.
From the framing from the plumbing from the electrical, we could see the quality of the construction going in and were extremely pleased with that.”
“This basement space was never intended to be a living space at all, so for him to have made it so nice is just really impressive. We’ve had people come in that we’ve shown it to and they’ve been like who did the work and I was like Corvus and you know so if anybody asks for Corvus’ contact information, I am happy to give it out.”

“..professionalism, knowledge and creativity were amazing through the remodel process”
Incredible master bathroom remodel… Denis’s professionalism, knowledge and creativity were amazing through the remodel process. From receiving the straightforward detailed bid upfront, clarifying and suggesting additional option prior to the start and throughout the remodel process. The everyday cleanup at the end of each day was amazing. Denis cares about his work and his clients. I would recommend Denis/Corvus Construction to any of my friends…we love our new bathroom!
“…extremely professional, on time, on budget, a clear communicator”
I’ve used Corvus Construction a few times… now he’s my go-to construction guy. Denis is extremely professional, on time, on budget, a clear communicator and is always a pleasure to work with. He does quality work, and genuinely cares about the job he does. If you want a job well done and a contractor that strives for 100% perfection on your home remodeling project, Denis is one of the rare contractors that actually delivers.

“ Price was very fair and workmanship was excellent…”
We upgraded our bathroom from 1954 to 2013 in one week. Denis, the general contractor, was on budget and on time, unlike some of our previous contractors whose sense of time was on a different planetary dimension, like Jupiter. My wife and I are in our 60s but Denis, who is at least 20 years younger, had no problem relating to us in perfectly understandable terms. Price was very fair and workmanship was excellent and included plumbing, drywall, drilling through a brick wall for a vent, tiling the wall and floor, installing a beautiful glass shower stall, resituating a drain, putting in a new door and frame, and painting. All in a week and with minimum disturbance to the rest of the home. We will be using him for a kitchen remodel in a few months and I wouldn’t hesitate to consult him – he also has good ideas and nice taste!

“This was the best experience I’ve had with a construction company.”
This was the best experience I’ve had with a construction company. After receiving five bids from other companies on a complex residing job, we went with Corvus. He explained in detail the products and procedures he uses and why. He provided us with an accurate and thorough estimate. His price was less than the others, using comparable materials. Dennis and his coworker showed up before 8:00am every day, worked feverishly all day long, in torrential downpours and cleaned up every evening. He was committed to getting the job done on time! This includes working on Saturdays and even a few hours on a holiday, to take advantage of some dry weather. Like any big project, there can be issues that come to light once you’re in to it. This was no exception. With Denis’s eye for detail he found a potential water leak from a loose pipe and some rot in a structural beam. Both of these items were taken care of promptly and professionally. Had I went with another company I’m sure they would have just passed right over them, “It’s all in the details” as Dennis would say. The quality of work was superb. The level of service was uncompromising. At the conclusion the few punch list items were taken care of immediately. I look forward to working with Dennis again for any future home repairs we plan to make. I have recommended his work to many friends and coworkers.

“… completed on time and on budget, and with exceptional attention to detail.”
Our experiences with Corvus Construction have been very positive and have exceeded our expectations. Denis has remodeled two of our bathrooms, repaired siding, and repaired a water leak in our attic. All of these projects were completed on time and on budget, and with exceptional attention to detail.
We especially appreciated that Denis squeezed our siding project into his busy schedule, allowing us to move forward with a painting project. Working with Denis is a pleasure, and we look forward to collaborating with him in the future!

“We now have a master bathroom that is truly unique, beautiful and more functional than before…”
We had Corvus come in and give us a bid on a master bathroom that had water damage from a prior contractor that did a very poor job. Dennis gave us ideas of how to not only repair the poor workmanship but make it spectacular! He has great vision in design and listened to what we wanted and combined the two. We now have a master bathroom that is truly unique, beautiful and more functional than before. My husband and I are very pleased with the end result.
During the construction process, Corvus made sure that there was as little disturbance or mess to any other portion of our living environment as possible. Very organized in how to project manage the project from start to completion.
We are looking forward to working with Corvus on our up-coming kitchen project. I would recommend Dennis and his crew to anyone looking for quality, thoroughness and dependability on their home or office project.
“They show up when they say they will….determined to stay on schedule”
Denis and his crew will wear you out with their energy. They show up when they say they will and work long, hard days. They are determined to stay on schedule and minimize any inconvenience to the homeowner. We look forward to working with them again once we decide how we want to remodel our guest bathroom.
“It’s a pleasure to work with someone who takes real pride in his skills and accomplishments.”
Denis will tell you he is not a designer, but once you pick your tile just step back and watch him turn into an artist. At the end of each day when we reviewed progress, it was obvious Denis was admiring his work just as much as I was. It’s a pleasure to work with someone who takes real pride in his skills and accomplishments.
“He was just as patient with my many questions…”
Denis is generous with his knowledge. He not only takes the time to explain to his crew how to do things, he makes sure they understand why they should do it that way. He was just as patient with my many questions, questions I asked so I could learn new skills from an obvious master.

“.. needed an exterior wall rebuilt…”
This year my wife, Gloria, and I decided to remodel our home, rather then replace it. The home needed a roof, siding and new windows and doors. It also needed an exterior wall rebuilt due to a cracked bath tub-that had leaked over the years. This rotted out the main structure and soaked into the insulation as well.
“After receiving other bids – we chose Corvus Construction”
A roofer recommended Corvus Construction for the projects. We made an appointment for a bid with Denis Vladyko, of Corvus Construction, and he showed up right on time. He took measurements and gave us a bid on the job—that we liked. Denis suggested that we get other bids as well to possibly save us money. After receiving other bids –we chose Corvus Construction. Denis said that the entire job would take one week.
“The entire siding and wall repair was completed in 1 week as quoted.”
He also called me one evening and gave me a quote for repairing the rotted wall. I accepted his quote on the repair. When I returned home from work the very next day, the rotted wall had had been repaired and waiting for my inspection. The next few days, my wife and I watched as our run-down home was transformed into a beautiful home. The entire siding and wall repair was completed in 1 week as quoted.
“.. excellent communications with its customers…”
This company has excellent communications with its customers—that includes the customer in making decisions. The workmanship was above par. We were very pleased with the end result. All transactions were documented on invoices and signed by the customer, in a very professional manner. After the job was completed, Dennis asked to be evaluated on the work performed, and asked for suggestions on how to better serve his customers. My wife and I were totally impressed with the workmanship and professional manner in which the job was done and we totally recommend Corvus Construction.

“…The completed results are outstanding as it feels like we moved into a new home…”
My wife and I recently retired and decided to update the house by remodeling the master bath and kitchen and refinishing the decks. After working and receiving bids from a few contractors, Corvus Construction was chosen based on Denis’ professionalism, creative ideas, and competitive bid. Once work began, the projects were seamlessly completed on time with very little inconvenience due to Denis’ efforts in making sure we were comfortable during construction.
During each phase Denis took great pride in showing and explaining the work being done and answered questions to ensure we were highly satisfied. The completed results are outstanding as it feels like we moved into a new home.

“The stress, the hassle, the expense of damage…”
Imagine one morning you come down to get some coffee and you are greeted by an immense puddle of water and partially collapsed ceiling. Well that was the site that greeted me one fine morning as I tried to get my family ready for the day. The stress, the hassle, the pressure of yet another unexpected expense and still having to get a wife, two kids and myself out the door. All of these things hit me that morning.
“..the job was completed on time and within the estimate…”
After taking a deep breath, I called Corvus Construction. We set an appointment for that afternoon and much to my total surprise Denis showed up 5 minutes early. He inspected the damage, made some calculations and gave me a written bid all in less than an hour. Not only did he start work the next day and the job was completed on time and within the estimate but I couldn’t tell where the damage had been.
“The quality of Corvus Construction’s work would have been a bargin at twice the price.”
My wife and I were astounded. There is no visible difference from the original ceiling and the repair. The quality of Corvus Construction’s work would have been a bargain at twice the price. I have recommended Corvus Construction to several of my insurance clients and have never received anything but the highest praise. When something around my house needs to be done, the general contractors at Corvus Construction are who I call.
