Other Testimonials

I must tell you that I have worked with so many builders over the years but have never had a job done in such a first class manor.

We are extremely pleased.


-Bruce Alter

Working with Hugh and his team is an exceptional experience. Hugh is a truly gifted craftsman. I have hired Hugh as builder for several home jobs and as contractor for major reconstruction of my new business. In every case, Hugh's work was on time, within budget and executed perfectly. He is creative, professional and his attentiveness to detail and cleanliness is commendable. I highly recommend Hugh and HNI Builders.


– Jennifer McKinley, Kingston Natural Foods Market

I don't know where to begin to describe the incredible process we had with Hugh. We had purchased a house that needed extensive renovations. We interviewed many contractors, decided to go with Hugh Cummings. I have to tell you that it was a very scary thing, but from day ONE, Hugh had us at ease. His entire crew were courteous, professional, easy to approach. But Hugh, was in a league of his own. You could sense his commitment, his passion, and the knowledge of his craft in everything he does. He is so warm and caring, truly such a genuine person. That said, his craftsmanship is stellar, they way he can redirect you to a better alternative is life saving.Look at our before and after pictures, if you want someone who will listen to you, be honest with you, and care about the job he is doing...Hugh is the only man for the job!!!!


-Diane and Steve Schemitsch

Right from the get-go, our family was impressed with your level of quality. The estimates you gave us were timely and comprehensive, addressing all of our questions and explaining things in terms we could understand. Plus, you really kept to the budget, despite unforeseen complications, which was a godsend. Everything was done in a timely way and you were very forthright about your schedule and great at explaining the timing needs of each project. The leak in the bathroom sink is completely gone, and your fixes to the problems with our porch and roof are not only well-done (really putting our minds to rest), but beautiful!

It's been a real pleasure working with you. And with our fixer-upper, we're excited to have met you! It seems there's nothing you can't do! We'll be in touch again soon!


– Hillary and Owen Harvey

Hugh and his crew were great to work with. They were communicative, responsible, on schedule and budget and did quality work. I would highly recommend HNI.


-William Horberg

Hugh Cummings and his team have done several projects for us - whether large or small, they has approached each job with professionalism and skill. The largest of these was insulating and finishing the 3rd floor of our Victorian home. When Hugh bid on the job, he knew exactly what needed to be done, from the height of the knee walls to where the outlets and switches should be. And yet, he was responsive to our special requests and made them work. He and his crew arrived on time each morning. They worked normal business hours. They accomplished the job with a minimum of disruption and with good humor. On Friday afternoons the floors were swept and equipment was neatly stacked in the corner, this in a room that we weren't using. The space was renovated a year ago and it still takes my breath away.

We know that when we hire Hugh the job will be done properly - his aesthetic is unerring and it is a pleasure to work with him.


– Janet Edahl

Finding someone you can trust when doing construction or home repair isn't easy. I know this is a big issue for many home owners.

So, it is my GREAT pleasure to share with you a builder in our local community, Hugh Cummings of HNI Builders. For those home owners seeking someone talented, highly organized and deeply responsible - Hugh is your guy.

Hugh is on the way to becoming LEED certified. In the interim he is familiar with Green materials and will uses them and go as far as you'd like to go. He also is a big believer in re-using materials. In fact, he built our son a sand box (out of cedar logs) and the cover out of the cedar walls from the old bathroom that he renovated.


– Rebecca Martin

All I have to say about Hugh is positive. We hired him to build my art studio and I couldn't be happier. I'm writing from that place right now. Hugh is a rare bird I would say. It's so unusual to find someone with so many qualities combined. He's smart, talented, reliable, gentle but firm at the same time, great at dealing with people, and he likes to do things right. When we moved from California to NY we didn't know any contractor so our real estate agent recommended Hugh. She's not the kind of person who would recommend just anyone so I knew that he was going to be good. But he ended up exceeding our expectations. We are so happy with the work that he and his crew did, that very soon he's coming back to work on another project. It makes a great difference when you can trust someone like we trust Hugh. We will keep going back to him over and over again.
