Customer Testimonials

We purchased a two bedroom Coop in early January of this year, knowing that a complete renovation would be necessary. This was to include a new kitchen, new bathroom, extensive repair of walls, new tile floors, updating and expanding electrical service, plumbing work throughout, and the addition of much needed new closet space. We hired KP Contracting to complete the entire six week long project, which was the single best decision we made, out of many, in planning our new home.

They say there is no substitute for experience and we saw that continually in Kevin and his team through this renovation. There are always 'surprises' in a complicated project like this one but Kevin quickly came up with a smart solution to every one of them. Beyond that, he kept offering new ideas on designing the space to use it more efficiently, make it look better, save energy, or to customize it to our needs (and changing minds!). Looking back, they seem obvious now but we would never have thought of them without Kevin's experienced and expert eye.

More than anything it was great to work with someone who truly takes pride in his work, knows the real meaning of quality, and has a strong work ethic you just don't see enough of anymore. Kevin and his men were on the job every single day and never stopped until they were satisfied something was done right. The superintendent in our Coop monitored Kevin's progress throughout the whole project. He was so pleased with the quality of his work that KP is the only contractor he will recommend to anyone in the future. That alone, coming from a man who has seen numerous jobs done by many different people over the years, is an extremely high compliment.

We have now settled into our new home and cannot even begin to express how comfortable and happy we have felt here since day one. Kevin and his KP Contracting team deserve the credit for that because they made sure we were 100% satisfied at every step along the way. Kevin, we can never thank you and your guys enough for what you did here but know that you'll have our appreciation for it every single day!

KP Contracting & Associates are a first class operation. We originally had Kevin come to give us an estimate on renovating the second floor of our house. By the time he left, we had such confidence in his abilities that we decided to gut and renovate the entire 100+ year old house. It is a shame that some of the best work that Kevin and crew did is hidden in the walls. The structural work that they did without knocking down the house is nothing short of amazing. Beyond the carpentry skills, Kevin had a knack for guiding us in making design and aesthetic decisions that we never would have arrived at on our own. Through snow, freezing temps and blazing heat, Kevin and crew made sure the work was done and done right - there was no patch work or shortcuts. Because of KP Contracting our "new" old house is comfortable, inviting, charming, sophisticated and ready for the next hundred years. We can not imagine having gone through this process with any other contractor.

KP Contracting renovated and redesigned my kitchen. I live in a semi-attached home with a small kitchen. After completion the kitchen looked so much larger and was more useful and efficient. Unsure of the design I wanted, Kevin was very helpful and supportive in decision making while choosing tile, cabinetry, hardware, counters, faucets, etc. When completed, the kitchen changed the appearance of the entire first floor of my house and made it look like all was redone. It was like being on the TV show Extreme Makeover - Home Edition. Since the kitchen turned out so beautifully, we hired Kevin to do our upstairs bathroom and build some closets for us in our bedrooms. The bathroom looks like it belongs in a showroom. It is beautiful and now no one wants to use the bathroom on the first floor. The closets are designed so well that I now need less furniture to hold our clothes and shoes. In a small house this makes a big difference.

Both jobs were completed on time as promised and within my budget. If I changed my mind mid-work, Kevin was always understanding and made the necessary changes without a problem. Today it is very difficult to feel like you got your money's worth from a company. I highly recommend this company if you want any construction work done as I know you will be satisfied and feel that you got more than your money's worth

"We would like to take this opportunity to thank KP Contracting and Associates for their outstanding job on the renovation of our home. It was such a pleasure to relax and put our trust in you because we know the job, big or small, will be done right and taken care of down to the cleanup afterward. The results have been nothing less than excellent. Kevin's skills as a builder and remodeler are far superior to many contractors that we have worked with in the past. He is dedicated to this work and very capable of managing many facets of a complex project. Our home was completely gutted down to the foundation and as good as new within months. Being a detail person myself, I was very impressed by KP's attention to detail & the proactive stance he took at every phase of the project. I have received numerous compliments from everyone who has entered my home ever since and would never use anyone else. Thank you!!!!!!!!!"

- Steve and Tina Davis, Franklin Square, NY

"Kevin and his crew were great. I had ideas on how I wanted my living area to be and he took it to the next level. They were fast, reliable and at the end of the days when I got home from work there was no mess for me to clean up. Kevin had a great eye for details. He was able to do everything from start to finish smoothly. He changed my house from old style to modern style in the time estimated. I can't say how much everybody loves the new look. I would only use and recommend KP Contacting for any project in the future."

- Lisa Relyea, Ozone Park, NY

Having heard about so many bad experiences with other contractors I put off having my apt redone for sometime. Then I met Kevin from KP who at the time was doing a major renovation in my building. I was able to then go in and see his work which I noticed was very clean and detailed. After talking with Kevin I knew this was the right guy. He did a total apt redo, put in a new kitchen and bath, took down walls built in a sound system and just created a GREAT living space. I would like to say what a positive experience it was for me to work with KP. This guy went out of his way and made the experience really painless. I would HIGHLY recommend KP.

I needed a contractor to do a gut renovation of my kitchen and I didn't want to oversee different contractors (i.e. one to demolish the existing kitchen, another to install cabinets and yet another to do the appliances and plumbing). I asked around in my co-op and a neighbor recommended KP Contracting.

Two things stand out to me the most about working with KP. First, Kevin was flexible and very willing to accommodate my special requests. And when I said that I didn't want a dishwasher and then at the eleventh hour I changed my mind, Kevin took care of it. The second thing is that KP stands behind their work. Two and a half years after my kitchen was done I discovered a small leak in the plumbing under my sink. I called Kevin and two days later he came to my place with his plumber to fix the leak. That's the kind of integrity that you don't see much these days.

We recently hired KP Contracting to finish our basement. We live in a ranch in Queens, NY. In these homes, basements are equal in square footage to the ground floor. Having a finished basement would essentially double our square footage. The team started demolition of our original semi-finished basement just before the new year. The plan included building a half bath, large family room, bedroom, laundry room, and several closets.

Before hiring KP contracting, we heard several great reviews so we were confident that the job would be quality. Let me tell you, the job came out better than we could have ever imagined!!

Despite a challenging winter, with several feet of snow, the crew was at our house every morning, and the boss was there every working minute of every day! The KP team are extremely talented and professional, doing flawless work, both inside the walls and out. They helped us bring our dream basement to life!!

The team at KP helped us with many creative, efficient, and cutting edge design ideas which we will enjoy for several years to come! I HIGHLY recommend KP contracting for any home improvement job; you will not be disappointed at the level of quality they bring at a very reasonable cost

- Frank & Laura, Whitestone, NY

Kevin and his crew redesigned my existing full bathroom, as well as added another half bathroom. In addition to remodeling the bathrooms, KP Contracting also redesigned our bedroom closets to allow for more space and practicality.

KP Contracting is an innovative and professional company that does outstanding renovation designs. Kevin helped us envision what our future bathrooms would look like, while also listening to our personal ideas and preferences. His recommendation assisted us in making appropriate decisions even when we were unsure of certain aspects. Kevin always had a solution to accommodate our needs! The bathrooms came out beautiful, and we are beyond satisfied with the finished product. Kevin and his team are friendly, professional, and highly skilled. Their work was timely, yet also extremely neat, which is often difficult for some contractors to effectively balance. I will definitely use KP Contracting again for any future remodeling in my house, as their work is truly impressive! I heartily recommend KP Contracting to anyone looking to do any type of home improvement.

Work started on schedule. Contractor (Kevin) works on-site with his crew. He adhered to the work hours and rules of the condo association. Complete gutting of kitchen, bathroom, removal of closet doors and rugs. All debris removed from premises. As work progresses, you "Go Shopping" for tile, granite, fixtures, paint color, etc. . Kevin reviews your choices, recommending products and vendors. He does the buying, supporting many of the local businesses for cabinets, paint, granite, plumbing supplies. The quality of the workmanship is excellent. They work very neat and organized, paying attention to details. There were no major plumbing or electrical "discoveries" increasing the cost of the job. Original cost estimates were accurate based on age of the building and renovations being done. Renovations were completed within the estimated time and budget. Very happy with the results of the renovations. Also received positive feedback from the neighbors regarding the courtesy extended to them in sharing the one building elevator and the efforts made to keep the common areas clean of construction debris.

I have used Kevin Paulich (KP) and his crew on several properties my family owns in the Queens area. From exterior work (cement, stucco, brick work) to whole bathroom and kitchen renovations to basement remodels Kevin does it all and his work without question is top notch. Bottom line he does not disappoint. Kevin is a contractor who is hands on and involved in all phases of the construction supervising and working on every project. From initial estimate, to gut out, to framing, electrical, plumbing and heating and finish work he is there. In the kitchen and bathroom renovations, most contractors in a complete gut out sometimes leave preexisting plumbing and electrical, Kevin goes the extra mile and and makes sure all new pipes and electrical are installed fom the ground up. Most recently when Hurricane Sandy came to pay a visit at one of our properties basements, I called Kevin again and he was right on it. He came in and quickly gutted out the entire basement and we let it dry out for several weeks so there would be no mold issues. KP and his crew changed the empty and stark basement into a usable living space with a sensational bathroom, office space, laundry and living area and deep closets for storage.. His attention to detail is what makes the difference. Some contractors while doing tile work for floors would just begin laying tile down, instead Kevin uses self leveling cement prior to installation to make sure the floor is completely level. Even down to the baseboards Kevin uses top quality materials not builder specials products. Even the studs which you will never see behind the sheetrock, Kevin uses metals studs which may cost a little bit more but are of a better quality and resistant to rot.

I have also seen some of Kevin's other projects and the work is always done right and other customers I talk to same the same thing - quality job done right. KP and crew keep up the good work and look forward to working with you again in the future.

KP ( Kevin) was on site from day one of the project and was present thru out the entire process every day. He is actually a integral part of the crew and I never had to worry that there was work going on that wasn't supervised. I was confident in the fact that my intrests were being looked out for, and that made the job a lot less stressful. The KP crew as prompt and worked a structured day. The work site was clean and organized. These are the qualities that you look for in either a major renovation or a small scale project. As the project drew to a close, my home as severly damaged by hurricane Sandy. A good part of the work that had been done was destroyed. KP offered his assistance immediatly after the storm ( for no charge) and was involved in the clean up & rebuilding process and in a timely fashon my home was restored to it's original condition. " like it never happened". In a time when there are so many horror stories about contractors I feel I was lucky in that I didn't have to worry about watching the contractor. They watched out for me, and that left me to concentrate on all the other details that needed to be dealt with. I would recommend KP to anyone considering spending good money on home improvement.

- Mike Mcgroarty, Howard Beach, NY
