Home Contractor Testimonials & Reviews

"I can't begin to tell you how refreshing and headache-less it was using Straight-Line. Although Paul is competitively priced, he is not going to low-ball to get your job and he will advise you what aspects may be subject to revision as work progresses. Most important ... is the supreme quality and workmanship mastered. I wholeheartedly recommend Paul & Straight-Line Construction for any home remodeling or renovation on Long Island!"

"Paul, just to let you know how wonderful the new stoop and reinforced deck look. The new stairs to the front door are wonderful, easy to walk up and the top makes it easy to access the front door. I am very grateful for your input in the design of it. I also want to tell you how many compliments we have received on the new configuration of the driveway with the addition of the new retention wall and steps to the walk. You worked quickly, carefully and very clean. My neighbors and I were impressed how neatly you left things at the end of the day as well at completion of the job. I would not hesitate to recommend you to any of my friends and family."

"I have used Straight-Line Construction for all my home improvements since I moved into my house in 1995. I have nothing but good things to say about Paul and his staff, when it comes to ideas, cleanliness, and outstanding work. Paul goes out of his way to make sure his customers are happy and satisfied. I have had many compliments on my bathroom, kitchen, and flooring. I would recommend Straight-Line construction for any home improvement. They are terrific. "

"I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Paul Vancura, owner of Straight-line Construction Company. On December 30th, a burst pipe destroyed and damaged a major part of the first floor of my home.  I was fortunate to have someone recommend Paul as my general contractor. He assessed the situation and compiled a list of what had to be replaced and repaired and the cost thereof.  He worked directly with the insurance adjuster and within several days, I received a check from the insurance company to begin work. Paul is very detailed and organized and most importantly, he is dependable. The trades people who work for Paul are aware there is only one end result he will accept ... And that is perfection. I thank Paul for his hard work and dedication in making my life less stressful and for giving me back my home."

"Our small family home had begun to grow more crowded by the year as more little ones joined our brood and tight living quarters were becoming infinitely more apparent. We had planned on an extension that would add a bedroom and expand on the family room but after we saw the results we went ahead and added a full bathroom remodel as well for both the master bath and our hallway half bath. The quality of workmanship was impeccable and Paul and his workers were professional, punctual and most of all respectful of our family and all its needs. We never felt in the way and even enjoyed a cup of coffee or two with the contractors. We were more than delighted with the work and the manner in which it was performed. We have recommended Straight-Line construction to many neighbors and friends and won't hesitate to recommend them to you as well. Thanks again Paul for helping our family grow in comfort and style."

"As you know, and understand our home is our retreat from the stresses of the world. Your expertise and insight into our vision of what we wanted for our home shows in the meticulous detail and quality with which you approach your work. You seem to understand the care and love we have for our home. Even while we were under construction you kept the work area clean so that each night we came home we were able to go about our business. In 2003, you completed the renovation of our den, basement, patio and walkway. Our den required a wall to be broken down, concrete to be poured, flooring, stairs, doors, porch, columns and upgrading of our entire electrical system. The background and experience you brought to complete all the work behind the walls and the craftsmanship you bring to the detail of the interior. You also helped us with the design decisions, making suggestions and recommendations where needed. We worked with your architect on this job because of the structural changes that were required in the basement. We were so pleased that in 2006, we decided to renovate our kitchen and opened up our entire main floor. The kitchen is a show piece, with our beautiful cabinets, granite and the carved detail moldings and fireplace that you designed and recommended. You were able to create a custom fireplace and hearth that is admired by everyone who visited. The open floor plan required additional structural changes and plans. Due to the continuity we had with you in the previous job, it was easy for you to understand what needed to be done. You also had installed a central air conditioning system. The decision on who to use for the second renovation was not just based on price, we wanted someone who would do the work with the same care, quality and craftsmanship you seem to embrace in every job you do. During this renovation, we also required you to complete the job so that it was walk in ready. What I mean is that you did the spackling, painting, wallpapering, moldings and staining of all the wood. I just needed to put my rugs and furniture in and you surprised us with setting that all up too! Paul, we are very grateful for all you have done and we truly appreciate the honesty, integrity and your ability to keep your word, this was shown in the reality of what you created in our home. It is now 2009, and we have not had any problems with anything you have done. Everything still functions expertly and all the design work is the envy of our friends. "
