"Love, love, love, the new kitchen (or should I say first floor?) It’s amazing. Cooking and entertaining are so much fun. I’m glad we stayed and did the renovation. We’re using the yard more too and don’t want to leave home. This has renewed our interest in finishing the rest of the house – get ready! You are to be complimented on a job well done. You’re wonderful to work with. You possess an enthusiasm and positive energy that’s so refreshing. A ‘nothing's impossible’ attitude. We really got everything we wanted the way we wanted it. To watch a drawing come to fruition was pretty amazing to me. And I would be remiss not to mention the DeRisio team. Everyone that worked in our home was knowledgeable, talented, trustworthy, and respectful. Truly delightful! It meant so much to me to entrust my home and even my puppy to you. I will always speak very highly of DeRisio Construction and look forward to having you return for further improvements/enhancements. Thank you for making my house a home. May God continue to bless you all with health and keep you safe, so you can continue to do such wonderful work." -- Laurie LaFave, Penfield, NY
"We wanted to write to thank you again for the great job designing and constructing our new deck. The gray deck board color and white railings you suggested really look good with our house colors.
Thanks for your help putting everything together, and for the several trips you made to answer questions. Thanks also to Cliff Day for bringing over samples and personally following up on the building permit.
Matt and Mike did a great job. The old deck was cut up and removed in one day, and your truck picked up the material without the need to have a yard-box on site. Both Matt and Mike did a lot of work that was above and beyond expectation. Matt found some issues after we removed the old ledger board and did some great repair work cutting in new wood and insulating and weather-proofing the opening. They both worked through a couple of really cold days, one with snow that had covered the framing and the start of the deck boards. Even with the weather, they were able to do all of the measuring and cutting to fit the boarders on the deck and on the stairs, and fit all full width boards for the decking. Matt also ordered new post sleeves to better fit to the non-standard post caps that we had selected. The job site was cleaned up every night, and both Matt and Mike, as well as your Project Manager, Mike Tubbs, were always willing to stop and answer any questions we had.
Again, thanks to everyone at DeRisio Construction for a great job.
Also, congratulations on winning the D&C Rochester’s Choice Awards in several categories this year." --Floyd & Ada Curtis, Pittsford, NY
"We love our bathroom. Your workers did a great job! They were always smiling, pleasant, and very professional. A big thanks to Brian for all he did. We would certainly recommend DeRisio Construction to anyone looking for remodeling. We certainly would use you again." -- Janet & Jim Marventano, Henrietta NY
"Dear Nick, We would like to express our pleasure and gratitude in the way you conduct your business on the highest quality level. Your workmen Andrew and Colin were punctual for the two days of work we had. They were professional in their work and they conducted themselves in a friendly way, they worked steadily.
We had a surprise development in that my husband had to be taken to see a surgeon for an attack of appendicitis. We called our daughter home from work to remain in the house so the gentlemen could continue their work. Colin offered prayers for my husband. This was most meaningful to us.
We had a small glitch in matching stains on the main post on our stairway. We let you know and you sent out Steve to re-refinish the post. He did an excellent job. I am an artist and am familiar with color. Steve and I worked on the coloring together. I enjoyed that part very much.
I have a booklet where I keep business cards. If we are disappointed with the workmanship of anyone, the card goes into the circular basket. If we are pleased with the work, the card goes into the permanent booklet. You are in the booklet. Our expectations of a workman are high. When we are satisfied, we tell anyone who is in need of the kind of work accomplished for us. We are recommending you highly to everyone. Hope you receive some more jobs from our recommending.
By the way, my husband did have to have his appendix removed and he is recovering well". -- Ginny & Jim Knopp, Mendon, NY
"Hi! I hope you are doing well and have been enjoying this great weather! Jeremy and Mark were out today and they were able to find the underlying problem and fix it. I just wanted to say thank you and let you know how much I truly appreciate everything that you all have done for us. You, Jeremy, and everyone else along the way have been wonderful to work with. I knew there was a reason we had a good feeing the first time we met about the bathroom! We knew right away that we were going to choose you for our project. Your willingness to address my concerns and questions quickly says so much about your company. I have (and will continue) to recommend you to people who are looking for a contractor. I also look forward to working with you all again in the future. You guys are absolutely fantastic! We hope you have a wonderful holiday season! Take care and thank you again so much!" --Sarah Brawdy, Rochester, NY
"Nick and his team were fantastic to work with on our kitchen redesign project. They were on schedule and more importantly, on budget. We also appreciated that fact that we could put our trust in them to have full access to our home during the project. We love our new kitchen and would not hesitate to hire Nick and his team again for any future home projects." --Lisa & Timothy Walsh, Brighton, NY
"We have had major renovations completed recently at our house by DeRisio Construction, from a full basement bathroom, laundry room to some upstairs demolition for a powder room, main bathroom and kid bedroom closet. We cannot say enough how happy we are. The work is simply perfect and beyond our expectation. From the beginning to the end, at every step of the way, Nick (owner) has been present on site almost daily to supervise. Scott and Brian are the most amazing construction guys we have met. They are always early on time in the morning, working hard all day, quiet, discrete, polite and friendly. They even came to work on a Saturday to keep up with the schedule. They are now my 2 and 4-year-old best buddies! Always listening to my questions, very easy to communicate with, and so knowledgeable. Scott is a perfectionist, turning all his work into an art piece. It was such a pleasure to have them around and we are almost sad to see them leave. We would certainly recommend DeRisio Construction to anyone that needs renovation and we will certainly work again with them in a near future to complete our kitchen and basement renovations." -- Dr Julie Labrecque & Dr Germain Jean-Charles, Pittsford, NY
"I wanted to express how pleased I was with the work you did for me recently. My wooden windows were in need of repair and other companies had advised me to replace all of them at considereable cost. You, on the other hand, examined the windows and told me that they could be reparied at a much lower cost to me. The work was performed efficiently and in a timely manner. The repairs and painting were done very professionally. I am totally satisfied with your company's performance and have already recommended you to some of my friends and neighbors. Please feel free to call upon me as a reference at any time." --Robert Twomey, Pittsford, NY (SEE ORIGINAL LETTER HERE)
