Flavio is very considerate in providing information and answering your questions in regard to the project. In this case, their was some rot on exterior window trim. After some thought, I requested an estimate for Windows and trim and also decided it might be a good idea to replace the fascia boards on the
as well at the same time to save on future maintenance. The materials he used were above average including Crystal Windows and Azek trim boards for the window trim and fascia boards. I can't comment on how these products will hold up as its been only a few days, but I am happy with having a larger custom window that makes the attic room larger and also satisfied with look of the fascia trim. The windows from Crystal were better than Home Depot brand but in-line with what I was willing to spend on windows. The Azek has a 25 year warranty and hopefully it'll last longer than that. The workmanship was from my
knowledge very good and though different from the original look, not unappealing.
I received 3 other estimates for this project and the price was just about the same as the others, but Flavio seemed more knowledgeable about what he would do and was prompt in providing an estimate.
i would certainly consider NY Carpentry again as a bidder for future projects.

is a true professional who takes great pride in the quality of work his crew does. Since I had to live through the renovation, they made sure that everything was cleaned up at the end of each day so I could have a bit of space and
was very thorough in explaining what the next steps were so this layperson could understand what was being done. As with any
, there were a few unexpected glitches, but handled appropriately.
I'm extremely pleased with the work done and am looking forward to sharing the enjoyment of my new place for the upcoming holidays.

The porch looks beyond amazing. Pretty much every neighbor on the block has stopped by to gush about how great the porch looks.

was wonderful. Easy to work with. Prompt. Quickly followed-up. He had great attention to detail. He cared that things were done correctly -- there was at least 2 instances where he noticed that his guys had done something ... not WRONG .. but not quite the way he wanted it done, and he had them take it out and do it over so that it was done to his level of quality.
They took about 5 weeks to get the job done, which is maybe a little longer than we had originally expected -- but there were some reasonable delays (had to wait for the stone caps to come in, heavy rains, slightly expanded project scope, etc.). But when his guys came, there was no futzing around, they got to work and worked all day.
He and his guys were not at all a bother to have around -- a few different neighbors went out of their way to tell me how good they were.
I would use these guys again without hesitation.
I've already recommended him to 2 of our best friends.
And at least 2 of our neighbors have asked for his contact info -- which we gave gladly.
... and as soon as we aren't broke again, we have some more projects to get done, and we'll be giving

a call.

Mr.
Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and Mr.
Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
are professional; they patiently explained to my mother and me everything in details when we ask for everything to know. They are very patient and very friendly. They even do more than what we agree on contract & proposals. That's what
Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
do :) They make customer satisfaction first as priorities. That's what we were looking for like family type professional friendly contractor to make transactions. They know exactly what we need for. So we DID made two transactions for two jobs. The jobs were done fantastically, very professional. Now we do have another nice room and nice lighting in the floor :) And we are looking forwards to work with them for next upcoming projects at our house.

They started and finished on the same day. They did the gutters and put covers of fascia wood. They did the drains as well. They did a very good job from what I see but it hasn’t rained as yet so I will have to see what happens. I spent $3400. I had contracted them since November 10th and it took them till last week to come in but it was more weather related. They couldn’t work in the rain. The price was terrific until I had to put in that $800 for covers of fascia wood. It would have paid $2600 which was great but I wanted the fascia wood to be the same color as what we had and so I had to pay for that. That was not very clear when we were doing the contract. That was an additional cost but I am glad we did because it looks very good. One of their project managers came out to check the work the labor people did and that was a good comfort that they do that follow up. I have some other projects that I want to do in the house and I would definitely get in touch with them to do the projects.

1. Management: I dealt with
Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
from start to finish. Easy to work with, flexible, thorough.
2. Price: I got 3 estimates all from Angie's List suppliers. The lowest seemed too low to be credible. The highest was way over my means and seemed excessive.
Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
, in the middle, was high but seemed fair. The price I report in this review includes post-contract additions and tax. The contract lists labor rates for such additions, so one knows what to expect.
3. Personnel: All the workers were skilled and friendly. Most of them have worked for
Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
.W. for many years.
Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
.W.'s marketing material proudly notes the longevity of the employees; I was just validating this for myself.
I single out the carpenter for creativity. FOr the lightwell cover, the design specification was my verbal description and a rough sketch. On site, the carpenter made several design suggestions - really improvements - that I welcomed. The finished result is functional and beautiful.
4. Schedule/Duration: The job started with power washing in mid September. The planned duration was to be 20 to 25 days, subject to weather and the metal shop schedule. The metal shop added over a week even though work was scheduled to allow some overlap of stages. The unusually wet weather, including much rain, a hurricane and a freak early snow storm, delayed all exterior work. This was frustrating but unavoidable.
5. Communication: Since paint and other equipment was stored overnight in my locked garage and because some of the carpentry and window work required access to the house, it was necessary that the painting schedule was coordinated with my personal schedule. Constant communication, usually by email, was essential. (Occasional incompatibility of our schedules
Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
to some of the delay) FOr the most part, communication was excellent. There was only one lapse when painters arrived unexpectedly. Fortunately I was, and could remain home. I don't think there were any lapses of the other kind; I was always notified if a scheduled painting day had to be postponed, and that was usually weather-related.
6. Post-job: After inspecting and accepting the completed job, which was beautiful, I discovered to my embarrassment that I had omitted painting A/C exterior ductwork from the initial job description and contract.
Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
had one of his men return and paint the ducts - no charge.

Overall, I am extremely satisfied with

Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
is the contractor and owner of D&D Home improvements. Essentially, my recommendation to you is to stay as far away as possible from him when it comes to home restoration. As you can imagine, this was a big job requiring someone who knows what they are doing. I was referred to him through a mutual acquaintance and needless to say, that was the biggest mistake, EVER!
Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
talks a good game, however, when it comes to doing the job, his
Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
team of workers do not rise up to the job. The house burnt down in March 2009 and he was awarded the contract in May 2009. From then till 2010, he essentially did what he pleased. I was not there to watch over him since my father had suffered a stroke right after the house burnt down and therefore he had
Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
to do whatever he pleased and he sure did.

First, the quality of material purchased was shoddy and at best, third tier from Home Depot. The granite counters, hardwood floors, lighting fixtures, electrical outlets, plumbing material, doors, chandeliers were not off the previous quality. Since he finished the job, we have had to go an replace some of these materials. Furthermore, the walls have stains on them, were painted horribly, and the sheetrock is already cracking. The plumbing leaked resulting in stains on the 1st floor ceiling. When confronted with this, he blamed his worker (apparently someone he fired as a result of his "poor workmanship"). In order to repair, his solution was to repaint the ceiling as opposed to figuring out what caused the leak in the first place.
Second, a "new" roof which he built is already leaking and will require another major expense to repair.
Third, his "new" roof already has holes in them, resulting in raccoons entering the property and now comfortably living in between the 1st and 2nd floor roof. When this was mentioned to him, his solution was to patch a hole on the front of the house. When it was explained to him, that this this did not repair the problem as one can still hear the raccoons scurrying back and forth, he promised to come back for more extensive repairs. To this day, I have not seen him.
Fourth, a shed which he built for us as an additional expense in the back of the house has already collapsed. It actually collapsed during winter when the first snow fell. Mind you, that initial snow was light.
Fifth, he did not install insulation when building the attic walls. This required us to bring in another contractor at an additional cost. Needless to say, he refused to pay for this saying that they were lying. He was supposed to provide proof of him having added insulation. He never did...
Sixth, bathroom fixtures, door knobs, towel holders, appliance hooks, cabinet handles were all of flimsy quality and have had to be replaced.
Seventh, he took hard wood flooring which was left over from the job and claimed it was his. Even though we had agreed that all excess material is owned by us.
Eighth, his installation of the kitchen appliances, especially the washer/dryer was comical. From the onset it vibrated loudly and caused the wall to shake. When confronted with this, he claimed it was a manufacturing problem. I contacted the washer/dryer manufacturer who sent an agent to the house.
Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and behold, poor installation was the problem.
Ninth, to add insult to injury, the architect that he recommended in order to file design plans with the NYC Dept of Building ran away and is no longer reachable. Consequently, there is a stop-work order on the property which we will have to incur additional funds to lift. It seems that the architect made some illegal filings and is now no longer reachable. Communication through phone, email is not working.

Now I have tried numerous times to reach Mr.
Bronx Carpenters Provider Name Locked
. I have sent him certified letters and the last ones have all come back undeliverable. He does not answer his phone numbers - 718-717-4138 (w) or 917-676-1663 (c) - when I call. I have filed complaints with the Better Business Bureau and I am now doing the same on this site.

Perhaps part of this is my fault since neither I nor my father was generally around to keep a watchful eye on him during the repairs. My father was sick and I had to take care of him, while taking care of my family and working two full time jobs.

Nonetheless, I think that he does owe some responsibility in ensuring his workmanship. He was paid over $200K and should have delivered something worthwhile. Whatever happened to pride in what one does. Please, do not make the same mistake I made. Stay away from him or his company.

My husband and I were not living in the apartment at the time of the renovations and did not have time to babysit contractors due to our demanding work schedules. Zoltan and his crew came promptly on a daily basis and performed the work true to the estimated time in the contract. Zoltan was in touch on a near daily basis communicating what was being done, and questioning what we preferred for any unexpected items. He was very accessible during the entire job. We are more than satisfied with the precise and beautiful work Zoltan performed.
