Once again, we want to express our appreciation for helping us realize our dream house. After you had completed our home on Taconic Road in Back Country Greenwich over 10 years ago, we knew immediately who to call when we decided to build on the water in Fairfield County.
As we all realize, building a home is a daunting task but you and your crew were always up to the task, demonstrating quality construction throughout the process. Equally as important to us was your personal attention to details that were of concern to us. We were pleased by your genuine concern for our satisfaction and your frequent visits to the job site to assure us of this. You have always been a patient listener and conscientious problem-solver.
All of our friends who have visited us have commented on the fine caliber of construction seen in every detail of the house. We would be pleased to recommend you to anyone in need of a first-rate, well-managed construction company.
Thank you again. It was wonderful working with you.

I first met the Wright brothers 20 years ago through a referral and I’ve been working with them ever since. They told me back then that they’d be my builders for life, and although many people can say that, they actually lived up to it. Through the ensuing 20 years, I have renovated my kitchen and have done some original work because of the relationship that I have with Kelly and Chris. I also built a spec home with them two years ago.
The Wright Brothers are extraordinarily reliable, they do what they say they’re going to do and they never accept substandard work. To me, those are the most critical components to dealing with a contractor. Through the years I have had a great relationship with both Kelly and Chris Wright. I have their cell phones, everybody’s home phone numbers, and I get answered whenever I have a question. When I call with a new project, they live up to their word given years ago: to be my builders for life.
We just remodeled an entire kitchen with Kelly and Chris – installed all new appliances, sanded all the floors and did them in a much darker color. From top to bottom, they selected the cabinet company, gave me referrals on the electricians and found heating people who could reroute heat and plumbers to redirect the water. They were totally involved in every aspect, used really top-notch contractors and worked hard at bringing in the price.

Our new home is fantastic! We have had many people over since moving into our new home this past September 2009, and all of them have commented on how special it is. The trim work, stone work, flooring and overall total quality are far superior to what one would find in a house less than millions of dollars.
It was very unfortunate when our last home, which you had recently renovated for us, was destroyed in an unexpected fire. When we learned our house was beyond repair we were devastated, but it felt great having you there for us right away to work with the architect, the insurance adjusters and certainly to build our new home.
The public adjuster you recommended was terrific and got us a great settlement with our insurance company, which never would have happened without your recommendations. The work you did in assisting the adjuster was very much appreciated and definitely helped him get to a pleasing settlement as quickly as possible.
We enjoyed working with you and Steven Mueller, our architect, throughout the construction process. Working closely with you has given us a new perspective on how challenging building a new home can be, and a greater appreciation for the work you do. We are most impressed with how well you were able to stick to our strict budget for reconstruction, our timetable to move in and our vision for what we wanted in a home. We couldn’t have done it without you. We don’t know why anyone would want to use anybody else but Wright Brothers with your new extended warranty and wonderful supervision during the process.

The Wright brothers have been working with JBMP Architects for over 15 years on renovations and custom homes in Greenwich and Westchester County. My last project with Kelly was a custom house on the water in Riverside. Kelly had built another home for this client 10 years before and the project had gone so well that when they moved back to Greenwich, they decided to use the same architect and builder again.
The Wright brothers have built enough homes that they fully understand both the process and the client type we’re working with. And they manage the project from very early budgeting all the way through to project completion. They have an ability to accurately estimate a project at the outset, and then hold to that budget all the way through.
As the architect, we’re typically hired to oversee the construction and ensure that it gets built in accordance with codes and the drawings. With contractors like Kelly and Chris, that’s an easier process because they know how to build it properly. Similar to the way we handle our projects, either Chris or Kelly will be your project manager and stay intimately involved from start to finish. They know the ins and outs of the business better than anybody. At any point in the project, they know what’s going on with the framer, or the concrete guy, or the tile guy, or whoever needs to be on the job. They also employ a site supervisor who is in charge of the day-to-day running of the project.
The importance of picking a builder of Wright brothers quality is that your home will get built as you’ve dreamed it, in accordance with the drawings your architect has given you. And it will be built in a timely manner and meet all of your expectations for aesthetics and value.

I wanted to take a moment to thank the Wright brothers for helping me get my home from blueprints to completion. You and your firm helped take a 15,000-plus-square-foot home that had been remodeled twice over the years to something that it should have been from the beginning. In addition, the extensive site work that goes along with an estate of this size was handled with great skill and know-how. Your company’s experience and dedication clearly helped this estate earn the name Les Arbes, like the great estates of the past.
All along the way your firm showed itself to be concerned with the quality of the work, design and cost. The result is something that both young children and experienced home buyers in the know appreciate when they first drive up.
Your project manager and site supervisor worked tirelessly to get me the best design for the best cost while still making sure that the construction detail and quality would be second to none. Every detail was considered to make the job run smoothly. I have done three major construction projects now and this was certainly the most professional one I have worked on. When the next book on the Great Estates of Greenwich is put together, I am sure my house and your work will be featured…

Builders and contractors are always given a bad rap. Being a very detailed-oriented guy, I felt sure I’d be another homeowner disappointed by his builder. But then the Wright brothers stepped up – and they were amazing. They were professional, showed up on time and were a super quality team who responded to our needs as people while balancing the needs of the project.
The Wright brothers kept their word to the letter and also gave us options to meet our unique home needs.
Based on our experience with them, I’d say building a home is a piece of cake. Thank you, Wright brothers!

Thank you so much for completing our handicap code construction on time at our Westport offices. All of the work came out beautifully and we have received numerous compliments about the new ramp. Most importantly, you exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond.
I was very impressed when you and Kelly showed up at the site immediately when the excavator hit the water main that hadn’t been properly marked by the utility company. I would never have expected the owners of the company to come and help, quite literally getting their hands dirty, in order to remedy the situation as quickly as possible.
Since you did my first home renovation in 1989, I have always known that you are there for me, for all of my construction needs. Your support and advice over the years have helped me in maintaining both my home and my office.
Please know that I am grateful for your friendship and support, and I am available as a reference should you ever need it.
