A Rhode Island family-owned business since the early 1900's


"Hi Russ,
We want to thank you for your excellent workmanship on our home addition. Throughout the process, as we discussed changes to the original plan, you were always helpful, responsive, and resourceful to us. We look forward to enjoying our new room, and will refer you to others when asked for a recommendation of a quality builder. Thanks again,"

"We have had the pleasure of being acquainted with Russell Denelle and his family for over 3 decades as a neighbor. It was not until spring of 2012 we contracted him to build an over-sized garage for us. The structure is beautifully and soundly constructed, and it was completed on deadline.
During the summer of 2012, we began discussion with Russell for him to take on an extensive remodel and renovation of our home. The project commenced Labor Day Weekend of 2012. June 2013, after nine anxious months, we moved in and take pleasure to this day when we think of the before and after results.
Russell Denelle builds a well-constructed house being certain to dot all the i's and cross all his t's. Being a third generation builder, coupled with his years of knowledge in the building industry, along with his vast array of local contacts, served as a tremendous importance and help to us during our building project. Russell Denelle is a consummate gentleman; his gentle, soft-spoken manner makes him a delight to work with. His desire and aim to please the home owner is extremely evident from beginning to end. We especially found Russell's pleasing nature and his open communication by having weekly sit-down progress meetings throughout our entire building experience to be most helpful.
We remain exceptionally satisfied with Russell Denelle and appreciate all his work, time and effort making our home so attractive and comfortable to live in. We would certainly not hesitate to contract him again if we decide to do additional building on our property."

"We consulted with Mr. Russell Denelle, Denelle Builders, Inc, regarding a major remodeling project of our kitchen, bathroom, entrance hall and living rood. From the beginning, we like Mr. Denelle, who presented himself as a friendly, knowledgable, honest person. He was one of the few contractors we initially consulted who gave us an estimate in a timely manner. We hired Mr. Denelle as our contractor and work began in early July. The work was carried out by several crews, each one responsible for aspects of the project (e.g. dry walling, hard wood flooring, etc). All crews took great care to keep noise and dirt levels to a minimum, and were responsible, cautious, and pleasant.
Although the project took longer than we were originally told, Mr. Denelle was always on top of his subcontractors, always returned our calls promptly, and always tried his best to keep the project on track. The remodeling project was completely finished by end of September.
Overall, we were happy with Mr. Denelle and can recommend him for major remodeling projects. The work was done professional and turned out beautifully. In the end, the project was completed within the cost estimate. This was an especially nice surprise because we asked for a bit extra work not initially detailed in the contract. In summary, the quality of the work met our expectations and we are happy with our new kitchen and the other rooms."

"To whom it may concern,
I am happy to provide a recommendation for Denelle Builders of Wakefield, Rhode Island. I couldn't have been more pleased with the results of the project Mr. Denelle quoted on (new windows, closet door expansion and door replacements), and the manner in which the job was performed. The workmanship is excellent and I wouldn't hesitate to contract Mr. Denelle for any future projects we may require."

"To whom it may concern, I used Denelle Builders for a remodel job at my home. The project involved new cedar shingle siding, new trim and downspouts, replacing 2 front dormer, re-shingling the roof, replacing an upstairs shower, some new windows and interior finish work. Russell Denelle was professional to work with and he handled the project well. I would use Denelle Builders again if the need were to arise."

"To whom it may concern,
Denelle Builders has done two projects for me during the past two years, first to build a one-car garage with a deck between the house and garage, and later a roof from the house to the garage. There was also additional work related to both projects. The end resulted in an appearance that blends the new addition to my home as if it were there since my home's original construction. Since it's completion there have been many accolades and inquires from my neighbors and those who have driven by and stopped to ask about Mr. Denelle's work.
I look at three criteria when selecting contractors. They are trust, quality of work, and price, in that order. My first meeting with Mr. Denelle was a positive one. He was very responsive to my initial call and exuded a trust that one usually senses when meeting someone for the first time. He was receptive to my ideas, offered alternative suggestions, one of which I accepted. And having already talked to others about his work, I was aware of it's high quality.
Throughout the construction periods, he listened to my questions and suggestions, and offered positive responses always. Needless to say after the first project was completed, I had enough faith in Mr. Denelle to tell him that the job to build the roof between the house and the garage was his if he wanted it.
In conclusion, I would recommend Denelle Builders to anyone for any home construction or remodeling work."

"Dear Russ,
I want to thank you for the wonderful work you have done remodeling my mom's house and also building the beach house that my wife and I enjoy so much. Both homes are beautiful, comfortable to live and entertain in and both have been on local home tours.
Your interest in helping us with our major issues in rebuilding my mom's house (getting the house done on schedule and within our budget) was the main reason we selected you to build our beach house. Both of these major projects were completed in time for us to enjoy the summer seasons. "

"Russ Denelle built our original home in South Kingstown and recently added an additional room. I have found Russ to be a fair and honest individual to work with and the quality of his work is very good."

"We recommend Denelle Builders enthusiastically and w/o reservation. You can depend on Russell Denelle to shepherd your ideas through into reality. He knows construction and has the correct workmen and their specialties for every phase of the job. We have learned that once we give Russell the Go-Ahead, he will arrange for permits, estimates, options and alternatives that we may want to consider choosing. He does all the "Heavy Lifting" and leaves the decision making firmly under OUR control. Russell's work is Great! We would recommend his work highly, and invite you inside our house in South Kingstown so that you can see his efforts first-hand and to familiarize yourself with Russell's fine work. Come visit! We love our house and the updates that Russ provided for us."

"To Whom it May Concern, We recently completed a home project including reroofing and remodeling a garage to transform it into a new dining room. Russell Denelle of Denelle Builders was our contractor and did an outstanding job in making it all work. While our project was not large, there were complicating factors which included drywall, reroofing, plumbing, electrical and woodworking requirements. Additionally, powerlines were moved, involving coordination with National Grid and others. Russell provided us with a written contract, assembled the subcontractors and proceeded in an orderly manner, keeping us, as homeowners informedat each stage of the project. Likewise, he kept within the budget we had set out, except for additional work which we specified and approved in advance. Our project was complicated by inclemenet weather, but the project was pushed along as quickly as possible. I can recommend Russell Denelle and Denelle Builders highly, and would be happy to use them again for other projects in the future. Additionally, I would be happy to answer any questions about any aspect of our project."
