Gianni and his team were excellent throughout a number of projects on our home renovation. We initially hired them to convert our unfinished cellar into a usable family room. The space looks terrific and is the most used room in the house now. We then had them do a number of other jobs, including leveling a very uneven existing floor, to waterproofing the exterior of our foundation. Throughout, we felt that Gianni actually cared about doing a good job. Best of all, he actually finished every job he started (we had had problems in the past with contractors leaving us hanging). Highly recommended! Read Tivona's review

Gian and his professional team helped us renovate the top apartment of our brownstone. The team was always professional and tidy. As we live in the building, they ensured that all of their tools and work was left neat at the end of a workday. Gian and the team took an active role in the design and helped us make decisions when it came to appliances, stonework, molding and floor layout. We wanted to keep a lot of the old charm of the brownstone whilst updating it for modern living. With such an old building, many situations came up with items needing either restoration or complete replacement. Gian always laid out every scenario and our options. He was great at solving problems intelligently and with an eye for design. Our job went over the original time-line due to us taking time to research historic brownstone details from the moldings to replacing a period accurate marble fireplace. They were very patient with us, and we are ecstatic with the results. Gian is also an animal lover and always takes the time to give our dog a hug! Gian didn’t just help us build out an apartment; he helped us build a home. Read Ryan&Amy's review

Gianni and his team helped me renovate my bathroom, kitchen, and also general painting/moldings in my apartment. I found them helpful in advising my budget and also scope of work needed. Gianni went above and beyond to help me fix my apartment as well as make it look beautiful. I would recommend them if you are looking for a crew that is professional in attitude and work ethic.

Per the contract they laid out, this was a 6-8 week job - it took them 6.5 months and even then, they were incapable of fully completing the work, leaving me to address items on my own. I spent 4.5 of those months unable to live in my apartment. During the duration of the project, they did not meet deadlines, caused damage to the apartment, caused damage to brand new items I purchased and insulted my family member and I to my face. As delays piled up, they took no responsibility for their inability to run the job properly and proceeded to blame the delays on me, the building, vendors or anyone else they could find. Another major issue was requests for early payments at every stage of work, in violation of the terms of our contract. Their team created the agreed-to payment plan, which they disregarded when they felt they were suddenly entitled to payments in advance of the completion of work. They threatened to stop the job if I did not pay them early and immediately when they requested payments. They did not follow coop rules, which caused a rift between them and the building staff. They were barely on site to supervise and as a result, they couldn’t provide regular progress updates they promised, their crew made mistakes and damage was caused. They also failed to protect the wood floors properly and put appliances directly on them causing deep scratches. The first time they failed to show up on site with no advance warning, I requested an explanation, I was told that they had it under control and that I should “stay out of their way and let them do their job”. When the timeline started to drag out even further, they promised to make up for it with full crew on site. Instead, they had one or two people at most on site and some days they didn’t show up at all. The final item they needed to complete was fixing the damage they caused to my brand new tub. I waited over 2 months for them to address it and the end result was a visibly bad patch job that they insisted was fine because “nobody would notice”. I had to find a tub reglazer myself, to fix the damage they caused so we could finally close out the job. They do not deserve your business - if you are looking for a respectful and responsible contractor, stay away. Read Scott's review
