Aleks and his team are professional, honest, transparent, and work with integrity. We, like many, have had terrible experiences with renovations and contractors before, which is what turned us to Sweeten. Our renovation was extensive- requiring a full DOB alteration permit and involved all new electrical, plumbing, floors, and finishes. There was full cost-transparency and the project was generally on-time and on-budget. From the very beginning, in developing a scope of work and contract, to completing multiple final punch lists, Aleks was patient in addressing our 100's of questions, ideas and took our concerns seriously. His spreadsheets and project management tools were helpful to keep us informed, and we were able to effectively communicate with him in detail via email. Aleks usually checked-in on the work multiple times a week. He accommodated our busy working schedules with weekend and late-night calls as needed to go over electrical plans, concerns and the like. In particular, Aleks helped us handle a very difficult issue we had with our coop that risked derailing the entire renovation. In addition, the foreman he assigned to our renovation was excellent and took great pride in the work and managed the crew and tasks with skill. Overall, Sync was a pleasure to work with and we appreciate all that went into our new home. Sync has a warranty for 3 years on the their work, and we know that if anything were to come up that we would be able to continue to count on Aleks. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sync Construction. Read Rashida's review

I was very fortunate to have Aleks and his team work on my apartment's renovation. From the start when I met him for the first time, Aleks was friendly, very meticulous and attentive to details. He proposed options and recommendations for my requirements without being aggressive. The scope of work he provided me was very detailed. Because of this, it took the property management company of my cooperative building only about 2 weeks to approve the work - full renovation of bathroom and kitchen, refinishing the floors, painting, replacing the closet shelvings and bars, and refinishing the closet doors. The work started on the last week of November 2017 and finished in mid-February 2018. There was a slight delay with the project due to the cabinet maker I selected, but Aleks and his team helped steer the project back on course. Aleks was very organized throughout the project. He was very timely with his status updates or when he needed me to provide decisions on certain matters. Aleks also has a very good team that works with him. They are all very diligent, experienced, friendly, and cordial. I will not hesitate to hire Aleks and his team again for any future renovation work that I may have. In fact, I recommended him to my friends and co-workers. Read Ismail's review

Aleks started demo on October 9 and were out of my space, with just a punch list left on November 13. In that time, the team completely restored my bathroom from a sad 80s era remodel to its beautiful original layout and feel. The team kept in regular daily contact with me, and whenever any issues arose, promptly let me know and presented helpful resolutions. Aleks and his team stuck with their quote, even when I picked the project up a year later. Read Leah's review

My husband and I very highly recommend Aleks and his team. Going into our renovation, we were apprehensive -- we had heard so many stories from friends about their contractors falling way behind schedule, costing them more than expected, or sacrificing quality. We had also just had a new baby and it was a stressful time in our lives. Coming out of our project, we are thrilled to say that we had nothing but an outstanding experience and the end product is an apartment that we are so happy living in with our family. It was also completed in a timely fashion and within the budget we expected. The team that Aleks brought to our project was great. We felt that they were very trustworthy and good at their individual areas of expertise. While we were happy with the foreman who was present on a daily basis, Aleks himself, as a leader, was also very involved. He always knew exactly what was happening on our project, and he was quick to step in and resolve issues or questions whenever they arose. Aleks and team also did a few things for us that just went above and beyond the scope of the project, to leave us with a great finished product. Read Sarah's review

We had a great experience working with this firm. We had paperwork delays getting started and they were able to roll along with us until we were able to begin construction. ADA codes prevented us from moving our fixtures so we ended up taking out the tub and replacing with a shower in the same footprint, adding a new vanity, and retiling the walls and floor. Aleks helped us pick stone and a glass shower enclosure and make other decisions about where to start and stop tile, and finishing edges. The crew showed up promptly every day and explained the scope of the day's work and we addressed most questions that came up over e-mail. Aleks has good design ideas and it was very helpful to discuss what could work on a practical level in terms of layout, use of space and storage. Read Nancy's review

Aleks and his team created the bathroom I envisioned. Here's why: -His bid was competitive, but he suggested a few options to buy materials from a variety sources that saved me some money. -He followed my design vision, but provided guidance along the way. -My neighbors and doormen said the crew was polite and respectful. -The building super (who has construction experience) said the work was top notch compared to other work he has seen done. -We started the project later than I expected because of an unforeseen delay in getting some permits but I had a new working bathroom a few days before my requested deadline due to a business trip. -I wanted to stay in my apartment as much as possible so Aleks was able to leave the old toilet in until the floor was put in. I only spent I night away. -Aleks resolved any concern I had in a timely manner. I will use them for any future renovations. Charles W Read Charles's review

I have to say, it was an absolute pleasure to work with Aleks and his team. You often hear horror stories about unresponsive contractors or ones who don't get work done on time - Aleks always answered a text or email promptly and was so patient with all my novice questions. He gave me good direction on where to buy tile, listened carefully when I explained what I may or may not want to do, and offered good advice on the best route forward. When work started, he and his team took meticulous care to safeguard the rest of the apartment (I was only doing the bathroom) and they started on-time and pretty much finished on time. Best of all, when they were done, he said that if I wanted to add or change anything I could call him and he would do it. We did have an issue post-removation with some tile (not his fault) and he came right away, we diagnosis the problem and he fixed it. He kept our budget in mind and his estimate was pretty much exactly on the mark, no surprises. And of course, he got major points for liking my dog! Read Elisabeth's review

I recently completed two bathrooms with Aleks, mixing traditional and modern design elements in an apartment building on 86th St. in Manhattan. It was a new designer/contractor relationship for us and I was a bit anxious about how efficiently we were going to work together. Aleks quickly put me at ease with his excellent communication skills and attention to detail. These were not ordinary bath renovations as we were working with high end art tiles for which the measuring, cutting and layout had to be very precise. Aleks worked closely with me to make sure the design was executed to my specifications and satisfaction. I greatly appreciated his eye for detail and the fact that he understood and respected the design I had so laboriously worked out on paper. In addition, Aleks managed the project with intelligence and ease. It was clear to me that he cared a great deal about the quality of his work and the satisfaction of the client and I was confident throughout the project that he would make the right design decisions. His interactions with his workmen, with me and the client were always professional. It was both refreshing and fun to work with a contractor who was so involved. I have since recommended Aleks for my next project in Brooklyn. We will be renovating two bathrooms, one traditional one modern, in a beautiful brownstone that was on the house tour several years ago. I am looking forward to the expertise and quality he will bring to this project. His background in engineering will be a valuable asset with the extensive plumbing and relocation of fixtures that will need to be done. Read Elaine's review
