Meet Julian Colarusso of Advanced Building and Siding in Quincy

Today we’d like to introduce you to Julian Colarusso.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Julian. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
The Business was started by my father and current president and owner Thomas Colarusso in 1986. He started by doing vinyl siding jobs in the south shore and in Boston Area. Over time as his business grew he got his General Contractors license and began to take on different scopes of construction work from roofing to big additions/renovations.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Anytime you own you’re on Business it isn’t a smooth and narrow path. Throughout the years the most challenging obstacle I would say is adapting to the changes the construction world has and staying competitive with good work value and fair prices. Another obstacle is knowing how to manage your money knowing when and where to put your finances for your business especially in times of economic recession like we faced several years ago that was something that put a lot of business’ out of work unfortunately, but I am proud to say we adapted and continued to get work and came out stronger as a company.

Advanced Building and Siding – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
We Advanced Building are a reputable fully licensed and insured contractor who has been serving the Boston and south/north shore since 1986. We strive and are known for providing our customers good work ethic, value and professionalism. We work with homeowners and investors throughout Boston doing home improvement projects, additions, renovations and house flips for investors. I am proud to say we do things the right way for a fair price giving the customers the best value! We give above and beyond to satisfy our customers. One of my proudest moments comes from this year he have flipped 4 houses in 8 months all selling for over million dollars in Somerville and Cambridge MA.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I don’t think success necessarily means making a lot of money. I define success as doing what you love making a good living and providing people a great service and making a positive impact for people.
