We recently purchased an older home (pre-1900s) and are looking to have some cosmetic/structural work done. Wondering if anyone has any recommendations? Reliability and attention to detail are very important given the age of the house. We've been searching Google but it's a crapshoot.

Franzoso is great, but a little pricey compared to others. There website is here: https://franzoso.com/home/

They are really top notch, great service too. My only recomendation on who not to use is an outfit called Peak constuction. They did a bad job for me and I would not want anyone else to have to deal with the problems we dealt with.

I wish I knew. Literally every contractor I have hired has either done awful and/or incomplete work. I'd be interested to see what others recommend. Same with restoration/recovery companies after a pipe breakage. There are a ton of contractors in Elmsford/Yonkers/White Plains, but it's difficult to sort them out.

I've only heard good things about Franzoso but I agree, they are pricey.

We are having work done now by Sunrise Carpentry out of Yorktown. I've been extremely happy with their work.

I will keep them in mind for my next project. Thanks.
