Testimonials + Reviews

My husband and I have renovated multiple apartments, and there is no contractor who I trust more than Steve. I think at times he is very very slightly more expensive than other contractors, but ultimately in my own home I always go with Steve because of the quality, professionalism, and genuine care that he dedicates to every project. He is worth it.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work.  We appreciate that regardless of what was going on throughout the course of the project, we were always able to reach someone whenever needed.  Communication is so important to us, and we are grateful that you guys were always there for us on issues big or small.  We are very pleased with the final results and especially love spending time in our bright, sparkly kitchen! I even sort of cook now!
