In listening closely to our clients over the years, we know that many other remodeling contractors simply do not listen and do not keep their promises, and that many building and remodeling projects are marred by delays, mistakes, and misunderstandings, due to poor planning, haphazard methods and poor communication. We promise you an entirely different experience. If you choose to work with us for your next remodel or addition you’ll experience a team knowledgeable enough to answer your questions and provide sound advice and practical suggestions, a contractor who is sensitive to the disruption the project will cause and is available and responsive to your questions and concerns, and workers who are clean, courteous and treat your home with respect.
Information & Helpful Tips
1. Making product selections early can prevent delays later. Proper planning can also help keep you on budget. You'll end up making the same decisions, but you'll know what they're going to be and what they're going to cost ahead of time. 2. Long-term-maintenance, energy-loss, and repair expenses can add up quickly. Make sure you include them in your calculations when comparing prices. 3. If you're looking for a project with big impact, opening up walls and hallways is one way to get the most from your remodeling project and create more livable spaces. 4. Ask your contractor for input on your project ideas as there may be some helpful advantages from all of their experience.
“ I have known Dave for over 15 years. During that time I have referred him to many of my friends. I find him both honest and totally reliable. Dave has done numerous jobs for me of all kinds. He has painted my house, replaced my roof, done my driveway, built a shed and cabana, extended and remodeled my kitchen and redone bathrooms. Dave is the first person I call when I need any work done. I highly recommend Dave and his staff for jobs of any size.”

“ Dave and his loyal crew have worked a few home improvement jobs for me. Once you use them, you'll be spoiled and hooked. Dave is the mastermind and supervises all aspects of the work meticulously. He has great eye for what will work best and the most esthetic outcome. His crew works seamlessly and the end product is beautiful. Even down to the perfect spackle and paint job to complete the job! I love the way they prep the home and leave it clean at the end of each workday. I wouldn't have any other home improvement team in my house. Den and Kitchen next project!”
- Heidi, Wantagh
“ Dave’s first job for me was a sky light. It was beautifully made and reasonably priced. A chimney company I was using at the time also always did a good job on our sooty old chimneys but it was obvious they were taking advantage of their employees. Maybe they felt guilty about it and that’s what made them snarl a lot. They were all set to take advantage of me with an outrageous price on a small piece of wood needed for diverting the water away from the chimney. Dave did the job for one fifth of what they had asked for. Their sales technique consisted of saying that it was a delicate operation and they were doing me a huge favor by cajoling their boss, but the price was only going to be this low if I agreed right now. If you’ve hired many contractors you know that ploy. The Home Mechanic employs very competent people who manage O.K. without being snarled at. It’s obvious that Dave treats them fairly and trains them thoroughly and for jobs that require special skills such as electrical and framing he has contractors with whom he works who are also competent. They’ve done masonry for me, rebuilding the paths to both my front and back doors and building a basement stairway. They paint quickly and inexpensively. I am confident Dave and have given him my mother’s 1934 house to remodel. I love what they’ve done so far with the windows, siding, insulation and attic and am very excited to see how it will turn out.”
