After obtaining estimates from a total of five contractors, I decided to go with them, and they didn't disappoint! From the time of my initial estimate through completion of the work, Ilya and his team were extremely professional and transparent. I communicated with Ilya throughout the process, and he was always very clear about the work that was being done and whether there were any changes to the budget or timeline. Ultimately, the work was completed on budget and on time. During the work, I was able to stay in my apartment because Ilya and Nina took great precautions to cover everything with plastic so that it wouldn’t be covered with dust. At the end of each work day, the team also cleaned up the work space, to the extent possible, and stored everything in one, compact space. In terms of the quality of the work, I couldn’t be more happy. I only did my bathroom, kitchen and closed off an open space to create a new room, but it feels like I have a completely new apartment! I also appreciate that a lot of work went into areas that I cannot see, such as the plumbing and electrical, and I am sure it was no small feat to update all of my old pipes and wiring in this co-op building. For anyone in Brooklyn or Manhattan looking to renovate their space, I highly recommend them. I have nothing but positive things to say about Ilya, the team and the quality of their work, and I am so pleased with my updated space! Read Amy's review

They communicated well, gave a very good bid and completed the job on schedule, even after surprises arose. As issues popped up, Ilya and his team handled them and were able to fit us into their schedule. Most important, Ilya was honest and straightforward with us, and we're happy in our new home!

In spring of 2018, the management company of my building notified me of a leak in the drain line behind my bathroom walls; demolition of a portion of my bathroom would be needed to identify and fix the leak. Upon learning this, I begrudgingly decided to do a full gut renovation of the bathroom – an unexpected, largely involuntary costly renovation that would involve me being displaced from my apartment for the better part of the summer, all of which heightened the stress of this already large undertaking. Particularly given the situation, I was looking for a reputable and reasonably priced General Contractor who would not only do a great job, but that I could fully trust and who would be flexible in dealing with my coop board, my management company and my insurance provider. Ilya and the team significantly exceeded my expectations, and that is no easy feat! When Ilya and I first met to discuss the job, I thought he was way too good to be true, so much so that I requested client references that I could talk to directly. Ilya's references described him as someone who was honest and trustworthy, hard working, easy to work with, did high quality work, and would do whatever it took to make a client happy. They were spot-on. Read Tina's review

Ilya responded quickly to our renovation request for our bathroom in a mid-size Brooklyn Coop. He worked with us through the approvals that are required by our Board for all renovations and was accommodating to our schedule which coincided with a family vacation. As we dug into design and planning Ilya gave us realistic expectations based on his experience with 100+ yr old buildings that helped to inform our decisions. Advice on a range of topics like choice of materials, how to save space, when not to be too influenced by Pinterest (its easy to do), and where to spend more or spend less of our budget. He also helped with bigger decisions like keep the bath or switch to a shower. We decided to switch to a shower - best decision we made. Ilya kept the area neat, limited dust in the rest of the unit and there was no issue with debris removal from the Coop. Something that is monitored very closely here. We really appreciated that Ilya encouraged us to work with local tile, floor and fixture suppliers which we felt most comfortable with. We were able to pick out materials and give the order to Ilya and he took care of picking up the items as they were needed. it would be have been a nightmare to arrange deliveries in a non-doorman building. And finally, Ilya worked with quality professionals who took pride in their work. When it came to ordering a custom shower door - Ilya understood what we wanted and put us in touch with a quality craftsman that really got the style and quality perfectly. The results of the work are not only appreciated by us but by anyone who visits our home. Read Penny's review

We had a great experience working with Ilya and his crew. We had a tight time frame to do all our work before we moved in but they were able to meet it, even after a few surprises were discovered in demolition. Ilya was very communicative with any questions that arose during the process and was always available to answer any questions or concerns we had. Everything from his bids and invoices to his projected timeline was laid out clearly which we really appreciated given the quick turn around on the project. He was able to solve multiple problems that arose when we discovered the extent of how uneven and poorly laid our old floors were and generously spent more time and materials than anticipated trying to rectify it for us. He made great suggestions of materials and design details that we weren't considering- we would never have thought about red oak flooring had he not suggested it and are so happy we went with it as it suits our apartment perfectly! Any issues that arose, he was quick to correct or do over, even after we moved in and discovered a few things, which speaks to how much he cares about making sure the job is done right. Overall, we're very happy we went with Ilya and his team for our first home renovation project! Read Katie's review

Great team that worked in a clean and professional and friendly manner. They were very diligent to make sure there was no mess left behind at the end of the day. They paid great attention to details and didn't cut any corners. This was not my first renovation project, but definitely the most pleasant one. Read Nina's review

We had the pleasure of working with Ilya and his team in December of 2017. At the time, we required a bathroom remodel and upgrades to our outdated closets. Since we are located in a cooperative building our renovation required a contractor with various licenses and the knowledge of dealing with a board of directors and maintenance staff. Ilya's experience fit the bill for our renovation perfectly. Read Alice's review
