Frank and his team of top-notch professionals demonstrated great attention to detail, dedication and transparency throughout the course of the project. We did a full-scope renovation with major apartment design changes and found this team very accommodating and an overall pleasure to work with. They were very accommodating with our design requests, and where we had questions or ran out of ideas, Frank and his team hit it home with great design and finish elements and solid execution. We’re confident that we made the right investment and that our home will stay in great shape for years to come. We purchased a co-op in a six-story ’30s building in Sunnyside, Queens, and hired Frank after a lengthy contractor selection process. We were even more relieved as it became clear that Frank had dealt with co-ops like ours before. Building rules, dealing with the super and all those other intangibles were taken in stride by him and his team. What a luxury. As with any GC and overall renovation, there were moments of frustration with subcontractors but again Frank and the team were always a step ahead and very accommodating. The project was well-organized and they were always attentive and transparent with communications. Bottom line, Frank is a craftsman and we feel like it really showed in the finished product. We would happily recommend his services, and have already done so with close friends and neighbors.
