Name: Dave & Judt Alt   Install a full lenght dormer in attic of a 3 story home (2 bedrooms / bath)2009 $ 55,000.00

Comment : The first day we meet Mr. Arnone we were greatly impressed with his volume of knowledge, awareness of building codes and overall professionalism. Mr. Arnone's quote was extremely prompt, easy to read for " a homeowner " and listed a detailed description of all aspects of the project along with amounts on allowance items, alternate ideas and cost. Based on those reasons along with feeling very confident, we hired Arnone Building & Remodeling to construct a third story addition consisting of bedrooms with a bathroom. The project was started and completed on time with no, absolutely no misunderstandings, stress or issues. The workmanship was perfect . Mr. Arnone is extremely reliable, conscientious and displays a passion for both his work and customers concerns. As homeowners we dealt with contractors for the past 35 years on various projects. Those times had taught us that contractors could not be trusted in just about every aspect. In the beginning of this particular project we were nervous and not looking forward to the struggle and aggravation of dealing with yet another contractor. John Arnone has given us back the feeling of trust amd honesty that is so important in this world today. We can't say it enough times . John is RELIABLE, TRUSTWORTHY, KNOWLEDGEABLE, DETAILED ORIENTED, a PERFECTIONIST in his work, but most importantly he is a STRAIGHT UP HONEST person. In the future, whenever a new project surfaces, John Arnone will be our first and only choice.

He followed up after the project was completed to make sure everthing was satisfactory and also gave us pointers and advise on painting the new structure . We will be calling John in the coming months to talk about further we would want done to our home. I would highly recommend Arnone Building & Remodeling and would be happy to provide a reference to new potenial customers.
