“We had a major remodel done by Carl Alesi Builders and he did an amazing job. The work was done on time, as quoted, and is better than we imagined. Carl Alesi had great suggestions that we would not have thought of on our own, and we were glad we listened. These included moving a staircase which had been an obstacle right in the middle of the house, putting a tin roof on the new front porch, using concrete siding instead of vinyl, the placement of windows to give our oddly shaped house a more symmetric look, and installing custom barn doors on the bicycle storage shed he built. He easily resolved the unexpected problems we encountered in rebuilding an old existing house. Carl was very professional, easy to work with, and did not mind us making changes to the scope of the project as it progressed. We would hire him again for any future projects, and we recommend him without reservation.”

“Carl has transformed our home with his vision and quality work. We have worked on three major renovations and 2 minor renovations with Carl since 

2004. He has added a total of 2000 ft. in additional living space and transformed the other 1500 ft. within our home including making our garage into a four-car garage. We highly recommend working with him.”

- Carol & Ed Warner

“We selected Carl to build our dream home for simple reasons. He listens, he is honest, he answers the phone, he is creative in ways we were not. Building a home or any renovation can be a stressful experience. Undergoing such a life changing endeavor, has been an unparalleled venture with Carl’s responsiveness is unequaled to make us feel comfortable throughout the process.”

– Chris Somer, Dewey Beach

“We got quotes for some exterior repair and remodeling work. Not only did Carl have the best price, he actually included more work items. His crew got started right away and continued working until they were done. Speaking of which, both Sean and Jason were polite, professional, and willing to explain what was going on. They also dealt very well with problems that cropped up due to concealed conditions. And their work was very high quality. Fair pricing, quality workmanship, responsive company. Would not hesitate to use this firm again.”

– Jeff Paullin

“It was a pleasure having Alesi Custom Builders remodel our bathroom for our business. Carl stayed true to his estimate of time and cost and delivered high quality work taking into consideration our environment and working with us to make that as smooth as possible, creating solutions for problems other builders did not anticipate such as creating a temporary door for privacy during the construction, and working around our hours of operation. I will be using Alesi Custom Builders again for any construction we may need.”

Dear Carl,

Many sincere and heartfelt thanks for the wonderful house renovation and addition you have completed for us. You have created our vision in better ways than we imagined and we are so thrilled with the final results. All of our ideas have been realized in such a wonderfully, creative charm of the original Cape Cod beach house remains and is expanded by the new addition. Our view and inclusion of bringing the outside and nature outside the great windows. The flow of light and air throughout the house has helped maintain our sense of the outside, inside the house. This is the home we hoped for, visualized and now can enjoy for many years.


We are indebted to you and all your regular workers. Each and every one was so cheerful, kind and thoughtful. From beginning to end, this was a collaborative process. You have instilled respect and courtesy with everyone and the collaborative process is evident. Each worker feels free to offer creative ideas which helped us achieve the wonderful end results in ways we never envisioned.

We know the project was more difficult with us living in the house for the last half of the work. Yet we appreciate your openness and assistance in making the house habitable. We also appreciated being able to be around daily and see what was happening, to everyone answering our questions and not minding thoughtful adaptations as work progressed. Your openness and taking time with us was so appreciated and helped us feel welcomed and included in all steps of the work.


We are truly indebted to you and are so thankful for your creativity, thoughtfulness and attention to detail. The quality of your workmanship is rarely seen today in the era of manufactured homes. Your attention to detail assured us that all aspects of the work was being done well.


We are gladly recommending you to friends and acquaintances. If you’d like to ever show our house to prospective clients, please do. We can also be used as references. May your business continue to prosper as you assist others in realizing their dreams.



Dave and Elinor Boyce, Rehoboth Beach
