My wife and I had the fortunate pleasure of working with Golden I Construction Inc. on two separate projects on two separate occasions - a complete gut renovation of our kitchen and a complete gut renovation of our bathroom. Despite the horror stories we heard regarding NYC Apartment remodels (we also live in a PreWar Coop) these projects were some of the smoothest, cleanest, and on-time than any others we had heard or read about from others. The team was highly professional, responsive, and did top quality work. I rate them on the three criteria detailed below: Quality, Professionalism, Cleanliness.

Quality - I consider myself to be extremely detail oriented with a high set of standards and was constantly impressed with the craftsmanship and work the team performed. The materials chosen were of top quality, they worked seamlessly with the outside plumbers and electricians, and most importantly finished on time! I was quoted 10 weeks for my kitchen (which included removing a 15' ft concrete wall, all new cabinets, lighting, ceiling, appliances, etc) and Golden I Construction Inc. came through and finished in 10 weeks and 1 day (it was 4th of July so I consider it a win). The same is true for my bathroom which included complete re-tiling of the floors, walls, tub re-glazing, and overall general updating - 4 weeks on the dot. I can't say enough great things about the quality.

Professionalism - Tony was highly responsive to all my calls and emails and was always kind and courteous, detailing even my most basic questions. My Coop has strict rules on construction between the hours of 9am and 5pm and the team was always within that window. Not only did I have zero complaints from the Building Staff, I was also told (unsolicited) that these were some of the best guys to do work in the building in 30 years.

Cleanliness - The apartment in question is a 1-Bedroom and despite warnings from some, my wife and I actually lived in the apartment during the entire process for both renovations. This included all of our belongings and even a piano that had to be delivered mid-way through construction of the kitchen. While this arrangement is not suitable for all (if you don't mind having a table saw in your bedroom for a few weeks) the arrangement was actually not that bad. The apartment was constantly cleaned, our belongings covered, and the work site was kept generally tidy; even the hallways and elevators were kept clean to minimize impact to other residents. The 14 weeks in total (between the two projects) did not feel like 14 weeks of a construction site.

I highly recommend Golden I Construction Inc. We interviewed several contractors beforehand (4 or 5) and without question the knowledge and insight (and even vision) of Golden I Construction Inc. was far superior. We look forward to working with them again on our next project.

Tony did a great job with a complicated gut renovation of an apartment in NYC. The work consisted of the reconfiguration of bathrooms and the Kitchen, removing walls to open spaces up, the creation of soffits for mechanical ductwork and lighting systems. They were easy to work with and always available. You really could not ask for more. I have worked with over 200 contractors, he is one of a very few that I recommend. Most do good work but getting to the finish line is very painful. He did great work and was fairly painless for considering what was accomplished.

It is with great confidence, as well as with my gratitude, that I am writing a review on behalf of
'Golden I Construction' ( Tony). While finances were of great concern for me in doing a renovation, I know that price alone should not dictate a decision as you sometimes get what you pay for. I shared my concerns with Tony. I appreciated his ability to hear my concerns, to address my concerns and with that along with his confidence, I felt comfortable hiring him to do this job. Along with his talented crew, after gutting our kitchen to the bare walls and floor and opening up the wall in to the livingroom, Tony did an amazing job designing and building our new kitchen along with renovating other area's of our apartment. Along with the design work, there was a lot of plumbing and electrical work involved as well.

I feel extremely fortunate to have met Tony and having him as my contractor was truly a gift I am most grateful for. He is honest, he has integrity and at any given time I would be confident and proud to recommend him and his company.

I completed a full gut renovation of my open kitchen and living room with immaculately assembled cabinetry, backsplash, wall-mounted shelving with puck lighting and furniture pieces. Tony and his team from Golden I Construction were absolutely fantastic, working with incredible skill and precision (cutting and tailoring high-end finished italian pieces) but also with patience and professionalism that put my entire family at ease. My kids love them and we would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for perfection!

We hired Golden I Construction Inc. to make and install custom bi-fold closet doors and custom shelving in 2 of our closets in our small apartment in Brooklyn. They were very efficient, professional, extremely polite and very clean. They protected the rest of our apartment and cleaned up after every day of work so it felt like they were never there! The detail of their work was very impressive. Months later when we had an issue with one of the doors, they were very responsive in coming back to fix the issues with no extra charge. I highly recommend this team!

My design firm has hired Golden I Construction for dozens of projects over a period of about 10 years. As the most reliable, high-quality professional we ever worked with, Tony (the owner) could always be counted on to respect our budget, keep the schedule, and finish every single renovation to the complete satisfaction of every client. His experience in doing major renovations, problem-solving skills, and great attitude are valuable assets on every project.
