Robert K.

Artie at AJC Designs and his team were great. He listened to what we asked for, he worked with us to help contain costs, he gave realistic estimates and followed through with the work. When there were issues with anything that wasn't done as we expected, he worked to make it right. Additionally, there are two individuals that deserve very high praise that are on his team and that is Onan and Tomaz. They did the installation of our kitchen and bathroom cabinets as well as constructing built in cabinets on both sides of our great room fireplace as well as placing stone and a mantel above the fireplace. The worked hard and did a great job. His internal painting team also did a great job on the finish work.

AJC has one of the most cohesive crews that one could ask for as they were in our home for 8 days and they worked so well together, My wife and I were very pleased with their respect for our property. In addition to the fine quality work, the crew's pleasant personalities made a potentially uncomfortable situation ( having strangers in our home) an enjoyable experience. When the job was done, my wife and got a lonely feeling the next day when they were done. I hope you get the gist of my comments. Final analysis: a job well done, contractor and contractee parted as friends.

We had our house completely remodeled. We added a whole 2nd floor containing a master bathroom, master suite, 2 additional bedrooms and a hall bathroom. In addition to the second floor, we also redid our kitchen by blowing it out and adding a great room, dining room and redoing a bathroom. AJC Design did all the work! They were wonderful! Artie the owner was very responsive and professional thru the whole process. The quality of their work was fantastic too! I constantly have neighbors stop me and tell me that the quality of their work that AJC did was excellent. The workers that work for AJC Designs are excellent and trustworthy (which was very important to me). They completed our project in record time....5 months. My house didn't even look like there was construction looks like it should have always been this way! I highly recommend AJC Designs and I'd be happy to give any reference for them.

Everything about this project went better then expected. You got messages and emails returned to you immediately. Very punctual. Very trustworthy. Cleaned up after they worked all day. The workmanship was perfection. I will use AJC Designs again for my future projects. Would recommend them to family and friends for the future.

Thanks [Member Name Removed] you guys were great to work with .



Christopher C.

Artie from AJC was extremely professional and showed up each time for all our meetings exactly when he said he would. He was very easy to get along with and was willing to work with you and be flexible. This was important when planning such a large project. Due to personal reasons, we ended up not moving forward with the project at the time. However, based on our experience in the planning stages with Artie, I would encourage others to give him a chance for their project.

A substantial project which require us to move out for over a year. It was a nice old english tudor which needed a serious upgrade. We had plans drawn and it took us some time to pick a contractor. After number of interviews and estimates we chose Arty and AJC Designs, Inc. We got along well and his proposal was sound as to the time and value. We engaged Arty first on a smaller project which was a success and subsequently broke the ground on the big job. It involved expanding the footprint of the house which meant excavation, foundation/concrete work and subsequently all stages of construction and finishing work involving building a complete house. There is no point of going into too much detail as there isn't enough time but think about the complexity of the project which spans all aspects of new construction and existing structure renovation, whether framing, roofing, electrical, plumbing, heating & AC, finishing, custom millwork, paint, wallpaper, etc. Arty and his team handled this well. I especially appreciated the work ethic of the crew which worked continuously throughout the harsh winter. Arty also worked well with the architect. There were some complications along the way as it is normal on a project of this scope but Arty handled it well. We are happy with the overall experience and the outcome. The home is both beautiful and comfortable. Arty is a very decent guy and that made a big difference in otherwise difficult process of major construction project

Needless to say building a new home is a huge project that requires attention to many details and then there are the horror stories with contractors you read about. With Artie it was way different as he provided many references before I asked and the list was long but I did speak to a few fellow homeowners who had only positive things to say about Artie and his exceptional team led by Carlos. There is no doubt a lot of apprehension when selecting a contractor for a major project and Artie really put me at ease as he is very soft spoken, hard working and knowledgeable. My projected started on the date Arty specified and then he and his team led by Carlos, they started this project in bitter cold and snow and most important they really pay attention to details making suggestions along the way. Also very important they also communicated extremely well with my architect when questions with the plans arose. In the end I received an "excellent product" as witnessed by other trades who have visited my jobsite. Also there was absolutely no angst over payments as Artie is an "honorable" old school guy and I paid him as the job progressed which is very fair and relatively uncommon these days and also proves he is a very solvent contractor with an excellent reputation with his suppliers . Overall this experience exceeded my expectations and would not hesitate using his services.

The work that Arty and his crew did was excellent. Demolition started on time, we had some minor bobbles with the foundation subcontractor but the work they did was also excellent. I heartily recommend AJC. Arty and his team are professionals that take great pride in their work. The date above is for the last contact date. We finally realized that the heating guy that was brought in had cut through a support beam. Nobody saw it so it took a couple of years for the sagging to become obvious. Arty and I figured it out and he came in and fixed because that was the right thing to do.

Almost one year, since initial contact for replacement windows, siding and roofing. Met with Artie at home to go over job requirements, etc. Nice gentleman. On time. However, things derailed after the intial contact. Delays in communication were constant. Took long time before we got a proposal. Kept advising us that delays in his projects were due to bad Winter weather. Then delays due to bad Spring weather. Told project start would be in middle to end of May. Time came and went without contact until end of May. Still did not have a contract. Last day of May received a "contract" that was merely a description of the work. Items such as warranties on materials and labor, liabilities, start date, finish date, subcontractor liens, etc., were totally absent and not addressed. These are accepted standards in the profession. Moreover, some of these items are required under New York State, Nassau County and/or Town of Oyster Bay Law. Suppose a worker slips and falls, resulting in injury on my property? What would happen if a subcontractor is not paid for their materials and asserts a lien against my home? Instead of renovation, I may lose my home! Artie advised me that he has always worked this way for almost 30 years. Previous reviews indicated great quality work. I'm sure that this is probably true. He seemed apologetic that there were so many delays and that we were not happy with the "contract," but we could not wait any longer. We have developed leaks around windows and the roof and we cannot suffer any more damage. If a contractor cannot handle the work, then they should not accept the job. This resulted in our loss and delay. I would sincerely recommend that as a general contractor and as a customer, seriously revamping his contract. In its current form, it is asking for a lot of trouble. A customer could lose his home and the contractor his business in the blink of an eye. I always felt as if I had to keep pressing the contractor for details, start and finish dates, a written contract, etc., only to be stonewalled constantly. To date, no success with any of Angie's List contractors. Pathetic. To charge people for access to contacts that do not perform is ridiculous. Moreover, it pays for contractors to do exactly this. Don't do the work! Angie's List unfairly gives much less weight to unprofessional behavior as long as the work is not done and the customer is left high and dry!

it was a very bad winter and spring,to a frame to finish contractor weather is everything,delays in communication were on both parts,[member name removed] job consisted of roof and window removal and the couldnt be done with the weather we had.projects that we had started were on hold and are we are just getting finished now,i wouldnt start another project and leave these people stranded.[member name removed] is a very nice guy and I was really sorry we couldnt work with him.



Ralph P.

We loved working with Arty... he was on the job and on the phone when we needed him. When he wasnt on the job he had really qualified seasoned professionals heading his crew. Carlos his lead foreman was awesome...and they all really took pride in their work. Another point to make is that they did'nt cut corners to make it easy. in fact, there were times when interpurting the blueprints they questioned and made helpful and cost saving vialbe suggestions that where agreed to by the arch.. My husband is in construction and he too was impresssed by their work ethic and pride in their work. Building a home is a process and working with Arty took a lot of the stress out of it. While Arty was not the lowest bid for the job, he wasnt the highest. He gave us a fair price for the work. If you're going to use a contractor for anything, treat them the way you'd like to be treated...respect , courteous , on time payment schedule and low on drama and you'll receive the same in return. Arty was a calming influence during the process. Any challenges that arose during construction.. and let's face it ...there always is...he faced with a matter a fact..."we can fix this" attitude. Which when in the middle of a job is so appreciated...he never ever racheted up a situation to be more than it was. The weather was so rainy this spring and early summer.. and that really was the only delay issue we experienced...AJC worked outside when it wasnt pouring...and inside when it rained. Another point..we did have some extras that werent included in the initial price, but they were fair and expected. All our inspections... and ther were many as we are in a village... passed with flying colors. I would highly recommend using AJC... we wish him luck and success in his business for many years to come... After all... he built the home my family will spend many happy years in. Thank you Arty.. Carlos and crew!

AJC .... well what can we say... Arty and his qualified crew literally builty our house. We purchased an expanded cape from the 50's and Arty transformed the house into a beautiful colonial through expert framing and attention to detail. We chose AJC from Angies list... we didnt know him or his work.. We picked AJC through the reviews... it was a leap of faith...but we could't be happier..

We dealt with the same two installers on both occasions, and both times they gave us the same high quality of work, were very friendly and professional, and work fast. The first visit took them about half a day to install the window framing, sill under the living room window, and paint everything. On their second visit it took a good solid day to frame out the windows in our three bedrooms, install new sills and paint everything. The end result is great, there are a couple of areas I have to go back and retouch (I have to fill in some of the holes from the nailgun a little better and touch up a couple of edges), but on the whole my wife and I are very pleased with the results and found the work well worth the money we paid. Carlos, one of the installers, made sure to reinsulate some areas around the sills that hadn't been originally insulated properly when doing the installation so we had no air leakage, an example of the kind of thoughtful care they took in getting the job done.

Description of Work
Hired AJC on two separate occasions to frame out the interior of windows in our new home in Huntington. On the first visit they framed out our large dining room and living room windows and did a great job, so we hired them again to do all the windows in our bedrooms. All windows with the exception of the living room window needed new sills as well as the trimwork.

Artie started the job on time and was here every day until it got done. His crew was thorough, fast, and clearly skilled. Artie knows what he is doing and gave me a good price. AJC Design Inc. was a great value. We are already planning to use them again for all our other renovations.

We contacted Arty for an estimate for our construction project. Arty was not only punctual for each appointment, but actually early on occasion. We were extremely pleased with his professionalism, as well as the professionalism of his subcontractors. Arty was thorough in coming up with a detailed estimate, and we really felt this his estimate was probably the most accurate. We would highly recommend Arty to anyone. **2/1/13 - The project is almost complete, and there is not a day that goes by that I don't regret not using Arty. We were concerned that in the end we would not be able to afford Arty seeing as these projects always go over budget, but the peace of mind of using a professional contractor such as Arty might have made this extremely anxious and overwhelming situation a little more palatable.

They did a really professional job. We have an older house so it took a lot of work to get the door frame cut correct to hang the door. They worked hard, were polite and saw the job through. It took a lot of time to get the job done right but they did it and we are happy with it.
