Quality Construction Runs in the Family: An Interview with Scott Levesque of Boss Services Inc.

By Kristen Bosse

Please describe a little bit about your company and the services you offer.

Whether you need to build an addition, paint or side the house, or simply seek out some design advice, Boss Services Inc. is one of the best contracting companies in New England to do the job. We pride ourselves with consistent high quality work and a loyal client base. With past architects in my family, I really found an interest in the design aspect of remodeling. I know how to provide the client with a practical and striking design that will fit in their budget. I have a large range of employees that each specialize in a certain aspect of the company. This helps to ensure that the quality of the work performed is always consistent and reliable.

How did you get into this line of work?

My grandfather worked in Massachusetts in the same line of work for years. As a kid, I remember everyone raving about the quality of his work and his friendliness. He seemed to make connections with his customers and treat each project in a personal manner. I feel that I follow the same philosophy today. Our client base is rather small, but they keep coming back because they know we are a reliable company that cares about the outcome of their project.

This is a pretty basic question, but in your opinion, why should people care about their roof or their paint job, or other services you provide? Is there anything more to this other than aesthetic beauty?

First of all, each person should want to feel proud of their house and their surroundings. For the roofing specifically, it is important to take care of these things early to avoid any major problems in the future with leaks, cracked shingles, or other damages. For painting and siding, the technology in the past few years has evolved tremendously. Consumers are moving to newer siding to provide something more durable to last for a long time. Installation of newer siding can even reduce the cost of your cooling and heating bills. If you are looking to protect your home, it may be in your best interest to utilize this technology.

What qualities should people look for in a good contracting company?

You need a contracting company that is going to respect you and be honest with you. If someone gives me a design plan with a certain budget, I will tell them flat out if the project cannot be done at that budget. We always promise quality work. Trying to do an expensive design plan at a low budget would mean sacrificing quality and that's something we just don't do. Trust is a huge factor in hiring the right contracting company. Also, you should look for a contracting company that has substantial references. You should always look over their portfolio of past work before moving forward.

How much does a good paint job, proper roof work, or other home improvements you offer increase the value of a house?

Kitchen and bath remodeling have become very popular for those looking to sell their house. A newer/kitchen can substantially increase the value of your home. Basement remodeling can also significantly increase the value of your home because it is considered as an extra living space. Any remodeling with Boss Services can potentially increase the value of your home. It is all about seeing whether the cost for remodeling will pay off enough in the sale of your home. That is something that we can figure out with our clients.

What's sets yours business apart from all the others?

I would have to say that we make the remodeling experience as personable for the customer as possible. I don't mind visiting clients multiple times to go over samples and drawings until they can figure out exactly what they want. We also offer the complete package when it comes to our services. Because we offer building, remodeling, and painting contractors, we can each work as a team to get the job done on time and within a budget. There is no need to outsource for other contractors and have different crews doing various tasks disrupt the workflow.

It looks like you guys cover a lot of different services, would you pick any specific ones out as your specialties?

It is hard to pick just one because we have a large pool of contractors that each specialize in a certain area. If I had to choose, I would say our additions. The additions start off with my designs and move forward with builders, plumbers, electricians, painters, etc. An addition is a complicated, multi-faceted project that requires many different skill sets. However, we have been building additions for a good amount of time now and I am fully confident in the skills that my contractors bring to the table.

What are your favorite projects to work on?

My guys love working on the decks. It is always fun for them to work outside during the summer. We have designed and built hundreds of decks, porches, and balconies over the years. This means that the contractors know what they are doing and therefore they can complete the project with ease.

What's the best way for people to get in contact with you?

The best way for people to get in contact with me is by emailing me at bossservicesinc@comcast.net, or to call one of our office numbers. The number for our Taunton office is 508-822-6218. The number for our Attleboro office is 508-222-8288.
