Avonridge Builds Relationships

Since its inception in 1976 Avonridge has been committed to building long term relationships with its clients, subcontractors and suppliers. Optimizing customer satisfaction through both the quality and value of their home has been the most important factor in our success. It has been accomplished by searching out and establishing relationships with the highest quality professionals who provide the best products and services available. Here are some comments from the people we are proud to be associated with.

“I had the best experience working with Avonridge. I had purchased a new home and had four months to renovate it and move in. The work on the house was quite extensive as I put an addition onto the house and also renovated the kitchen, baths and bedrooms as well as adding a patio. The quality of the work was exceptional and within budget. The subcontractors were all wonderful gentlemen and I was truly sad to see them go when the project was finished. I could not recommend Avonridge more. They turned what could have been a stressful experience into a pleasurable one.”

“We are happy to show the house to your prospective clients any time. We love the house, being in it, around it and dream of it when we are not here.”

– Mark & Tatiana W.

Though we’ve thanked you countless times in person, we wanted to take the opportunity and memorialize our gratitude.

“We’ve been in our home for nearly 17 months and barely a day goes by that we don’t admire its beauty and craftsmanship. What a wonderful place to raise our family and live out our lives. We often reflect on the entire building process from our initial meeting at your office, to developing the floor plan / exterior and our many site meetings when construction was underway.” read more »

“In dealing with Tom Francoline and his Avonridge staff, we found that they do stand behind their words. They worked diligently with us through designing and building our house and landscaping the site. They were not only available during every step of the project, but they have followed up through the years since we moved in.” read more »

“I am pleased to recommend and serve as a reference for Tom Francoline, owner of Avonridge. I purchased two spec houses from the company: one in 1999 and the other in 2007.  I bought the first house from Avonridge in 1999 because it was so special and I fell in love with it from the moment I walked inside. I went back to Tom Francoline for the second one when I down sized because I wanted to deal only with him for the next house because the first experience had been so positive. He has stood behind his work and his promises and has never failed to be helpful to me when I have sought his advice or help with anything I have needed.” read more »

“Our building experience with Avonridge was truly enjoyable. From initial planning until completion of our home, we experienced great communications and teamwork with owner Tom and project manager Colleen. We asked for many custom changes to the original plans, and Avonridge worked with us to incorporate our ideas and make our new home our own. From start to finish, we were afforded every opportunity to be involved in the process and were treated with respect. We loved the professionalism and expertise of each craftsman and appreciated their desire to create our dream home. After living in the house for several years, we continue to recognize the high standards Avonridge applied to the design, building, and finishing touches that contribute to our total delight with our house.”

Hello my name is David Bub. I own Bub Brothers Drywall LLC in East Granby, CT. I have had the pleasure of doing the drywall work for Avonridge for now 23 years. I say pleasure because if I ever solicit work from other builders and they ask for references I always say proudly that I do all of Avonridge’s drywall. Enough said I get instant credibility. I have always enjoyed my interaction with and consider Tom Francoline a mentor. He has taught me so many things without knowing. Even now after 23 years working together I still get the wow thought when I pull up to an Avonridge job. Tom and his project managers have the rare ability to turn a piece of raw land into a homesite or subdivision anyone would love to call home.

Being in the construction industry for over 25 yrs. and working with numerous general contractors I feel Avonridge is one of the premier builders in the state. They handle every aspect of the construction phase from design build, to selecting tile and bathroom fixtures just to name a few. Their project managers work closely with customers and subcontractors to complete the projects correctly, on time, and within budget. I’m proud to be part of the Avonridge team.

Collins & Co. has been working with Tom Francoline and the Avonridge team since 1992. We provide insulation services, install gutters, gas fireplaces and closet shelving.

In the last 20 years we have worked with them on some of the most impressive homes built that I have seen in my 40 year career in this business. We have worked on hundreds of Avonridge houses, and although the size of them can vary greatly, the common denominator of all these homes is the quality that goes into them. There is a big difference from one home builder to another, and Avonridge is at the top.

I have owned Fulton Foundations, Inc. for the past 22 years. I’ve worked for Tom Francoline and Avonridge since I started my business. Quite simply our relationship has endured because I trust Tom’s judgment. He is a demanding, fair and honest person. His staff takes on any project in a systematic way. Everyone at Avonridge takes pride in achieving their client’s desires in terms of the feel and look of their new home.
