Testimonials

“It is apparent to all who were involved with this $12m project that the engineers and administrators of Hebert Construction were not only extraordinarily competent and highly professional individuals they are men of the highest integrity who can be completely trusted with any assignment. You practice an economy of resources and time. You are clearly experts at what you do.”
“Hebert’s ability to work through Constructability options during all phases of projects was of invaluable assistance to project success. Constructability items, whether involved at the conceptual, detailed design, procurement or construction execution stage were always pursued by you and your organization with imagination, creativity, integrity and extreme cost consciousness. In general, I always felt we were getting a best value approach through Hebert’s efforts.”
“The decisions which you made in hiring the best sub-contractors for the task at hand are to be commended. It is obvious to me that these selections along with your oversight and review with emphasis on quality have produced an outstanding facility which will be enjoyed by the many children of the community.”
“More than a general contractor, Hebert was a “partner” which made a complex project nearly painless.  They went out of their way to make sure every dollar was spent wisely, even suggesting alternatives to our architectural plans.  If we had another project, we would absolutely use them again, and we unhesitatingly give them our highest recommendation.  One cannot go wrong using Hebert Construction.”
“I probably don’t say thank you enough for the quality of work that you and your team do. All of the renovation projects that Norway Savings Bank has worked on with Hebert Construction (Auburn, Forest Avenue and Congress Street, Portland and most recently Topsham), have been well planned, competitively priced and delivered, on time and to our exacting standards. You seamlessly incorporate banking specific subcontractors into the project and any changes to the project scope are systematically tracked and documented so there are no surprises. When unexpected issues or changes arise, there is never any panic, you just take care of it! Your organization and exceptional staff make the construction process a pleasure! Thanks for all you do!”
"It took only one project for me to learn about the quality and integrity that Hebert Construction brings to the table. Now, 8 years later, Hebert Construction is a firm I invite to bid on every project I have. Working with their team is enjoyable because you always know what to expect: an incredible work ethic, commitment to delivering a high-quality product at a fair price, and creative approaches to challenging problems."
"Since our first project, Hebert Construction has helped us with large and small professional and medical office renovations, unique building management projects, and even site signage projects. We initially selected Hebert Construction because of their experience and reputation for quality work, trustworthiness, and their abilities to communicate, work with a team, stay within budget, and meet schedules. They have exceeded our expectations and always provide great value."

Hebert Through The Years

Edward Hebert, an independent carpenter, formed a residential carpentry company in Lewiston, Maine in 1943. Edward Hebert Construction quickly rose in prominence to become a leader in premier homebuilding in the area.

Edward’s sons, Richard and Daniel, joined the family business in 1954 and 1969 and established a new namesake: Edward Hebert & Sons. The company grew from a small team of skilled residential carpenters into a comprehensive construction company, with commercial, corporate, and educational expertise. When Edward retired in 1973, Richard and Dan assumed leadership and continued to reinforce their father’s legacy of quality construction and honest work.

Richard’s son, Michael, brought another generation to the burgeoning business in 1985, working for twenty years in the field prior to assuming a management position. In 2001, Richard retired, Daniel and Michael took on leadership, and the company officially became Hebert Construction.

Daniel’s son, Tim, joined the family ranks in 2002 after graduating from Wentworth Institute of Technology. A decade later, Michael’s son, Simon, began the 4th-generation of construction commitment following graduation from Syracuse University in 2013.

Daniel retired in 2015 and Hebert Construction continues to deliver excellence guided by family values of consistency, dependability, and respect under the leadership of Michael and Tim.

For over 75 years, Hebert Construction has built upon a rock-solid family legacy, never wavering from the diligence and integrity that helped create consistent growth and client satisfaction. Hebert is dedicated to remaining a leader in northern New England’s construction industry and raising the bar for quality work and personal service throughout the region.
