Case Study by Cynthia B.
In June 2020, I purchased a 3 bedroom/2½ bath townhouse condominium from the original owner, who had purchased it in the early 1970s. Except for a laminate floor installed on ¾ of the first floor, the condo had not been updated at all. Imagine a ‘70s condo – popcorn ceilings, blue tiled bathrooms (and blue sink and toilet), small separated rooms (small kitchen separated by a wall to a small dining room), non-functional soffits, etc.
After interviewing a few contractors for this task, I partnered with Jason Bernier of Bernier Building and Remodeling. The remodeling began in January 2021.
The tasks at hand were many: gut/remodel 3 bathrooms, apply sheetrock on all ceilings, build a closet in the living room that would do double duty as a coat closet and a space for a stackable washer/dryer), open a wall in the living room to open up the staircase, remove all soffits, replace the kitchen floor, remove the wall between the kitchen and dining room, opening a wall in the dining room to accommodate drawers, creating an island in the newly opened kitchen/dining space, replace bannisters, remove carpeting on stairs, paint the entire condo. WOW – a lot needed to be done!
Jason acted as the general contractor when not doing actual hands-on work. He coordinated the necessary tradesman – electrician, plumber, painter, tiler, finish carpenter, etc. Of course, there were unforeseen issues – past termite damage needing remediation, ductwork in need of repair, stair treads/risers needing enhancement. He had contacts with each trade, and they were always very responsive to his request for service.
Additionally, Jason was creative with suggestions. He offered up tiling the kitchen backsplash – which I was not going to do - with the left-over tile from the upstairs showers. What a difference it makes to the kitchen! There are many more suggestions that he offered that made a difference in the condo project. Finally, Jason was very mindful of the budget for the project.
If you are looking for a general remodeler/builder, you should contact Jason. I found him to be innovative, creative, honest, respectful of the client and budget, has a wide range of contacts for tradespeople, and truly cares about the outcome of the project. You will not be disappointed.

I highly recommend Bernier Building & Remodeling and Jason Bernier, the general contractor. Jason was hired to complete a very complicated project in southern Fairfield County. Throughout the project, he was a thoughtful communicator, a very hard worker, and above all, a creative problem-solver. Jason was brought in to complete the renovation of an 1812 home to basically brand new construction -minus the foundation and one original staircase. The approximately 3,000 foot renovations included multiple bathrooms, a kitchen, 4 decks/porches as well as a detached barn.

We hired Bernier to remodel but specifically update our condo unit in Guilford. The update covered removal of popcorn ceilings throughout, combining 2 closets into 1 room & install washer/dryer, totaling prior kitchen column/cabinets and remodel all into a beautiful 21Century living space serving my disabled Veteran husband and myself in retirement. Thank you.

Excellent from start to finish. Jason was truly professional and friendly from looking at the job thru quotation, scheduling and construction. He is an excellent craftsman, and was always willing to listen to my ideas. I had an unusual project of replacing a dock in a short time frame while the lake was drawn down, and I had certain ideas as to how I wanted to build the replacement. Jason was very thoughtful about listening to me, discussing options, and reviewing my specifications. He worked quickly and efficiently and I am sure I will consider him for my next project.
