Apartment Renovations and Remodeling in NYC
Have an apartment that needs a renovation? We specialize in designing apartments in the NYC area. We are more than a contractor. As a design / build firm that specializes in luxury and fine apartment renovations, we have built a reputation as one of the most detail-oriented apartment remodeling contractors in the New York City area.
The Beauty of High-Quality Surfaces
Luxury surfaces continue to add astonishing beauty to kitchens and baths in new and remodeled homes throughout the area. Solid surfaces now are available in an ever-widening range of colors, including a granite look, with high degrees of translucence and depth. Granite and stone add a beautiful, natural look, with an abundance of choices and finishes. Tile, stainless steel, laminates, and wood – even concrete – are other possibilities. Each surface has its benefits, beyond the inherent beauty it can add to your design. Your kitchen designer will advise you on the best choices for your project, based on overall design and budget.

The Reality of Remodeling
Dollar-smart homeowners know that in cost versus value surveys, kitchen renovations and bath additions or renovations yield a very high return on the original investment. These homeowners rarely embark on such remodeling projects with resale in mind. However, knowing their investment is a wise one gives them the freedom to fully realize their dreams of the ultimate sybaritic bath or the friendliest family kitchen that accommodates them now and well into the future.
Apartment Remodeling Coordination Process
The course of any apartment renovation of any size starts with an initial meeting to discuss pricing, demolition, design, and scheduling, as well as a time frame for your project. After that the apartment demolition work will begin to remove everything necessary and have a clean slate.
After demolition the rough-in will begin, including structural, plumbing, and electrical work. Once that is done the carpentry will begin, with sheetrock, tile, molding, plastering, and installation of cabinetry and other materials. Then our finishing touches will have your apartment looking luxurious.
Reporting and Cost Control for Apartment Renovations
During the Apartment renovation and construction process, we will provide up-to-date information with respect to changes that have occurred and the plan of action drawn up initially. Everything will be in an itemized report for you to see, including any change orders that you approved.
Commissioning and Apartment Project Closeout
One of the most critical stages of the apartment remodeling process is the commissioning and closeout of the project with the final details.

We will work with all project team members to define the logistical requirements for the construction process, such as areas for deliveries, placement of barricades (if required) and hours of operation.
First we must remove all the old materials and fixtures from your home. The demolition phase consists of removing:
⁃ Existing cabinets and counters
⁃ Plaster from walls and ceilings
⁃ Walls and ceilings are de-nailed
⁃ Finish Flooring
⁃ All remaining debris is swept and vacuumed to limit the spread of dust during construction.
