To Whom It May Concern:
We had just closed on an apartment, needed to replace the kitchen, refinish the floors as well as
paint and all needed to be done within a very tight schedule when we hired UCE Renovation as our home improvement contractors. UCE Renovation was able to deliver on time and on-budget. They worked
with us and our Managing Agent who represented our co-op board in ensuring that they received the proper construction certifications, insurances, as well as licenses which were required.
Our interactions with UCE Renovation were always professional and responsive. Every time we called with a question or a change we received an answer as well as flexibility to change course based on request. We are very satisfied by our experience and plan to work with UCE Renovations again in the future.

We used UCE Renovation for some renovations we did to the apartment we recently bought. Albert and his team expanded a closet, moved a wall, built a half-wall around our staircase, installed new floors, painted, and did the trim work, and did a fantastic job. UCE's price was competitive, and the quality of their work was outstanding--we had neighbors asking who our contractor was for future reference. When a couple of minor unexpected issues came up, UCE went the extra mile to resolve them. We had a great experience with UCE and would use them (or recommend them to others) in the future without hesitation.
Absolutely the most professional company, well done job, within quoted budget, in the time-frame scheduled... I was out of town and Albert emailed updates on all details. Excellent communications, great price, I recommend this company 100%.

To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing this letter to highly recommend Albert and UCE Renovations as your home improvement contractors. After interviewing several prospective contractors, Albert Feierstein stood solidly out from the pack. Albert is an articulate, gracious, and consummate professional. His architecture background was readily apparent as he expertly sized up the work that needed to be accomplished. His feedback and advice were always appropriate and welcome as he gracefully incorporated all our wishes and often times enhanced our ideas to a new level. Furthermore, his estimates were one of the most reasonable out of all the ones we received. I can attest that the work stayed well within the budget he estimated.
Working as our home improvement contractors, Albert and the UCE Renovation team were mindful of the co-op restrictions and our timetable. They patiently helped us obtain board approval for all the work planned. They were adept at removing our old wood floors, replacing our old wood floors, and installing shoe molding so that our new wood floors were spectacular. Albert made sure we were informed of each phase of the process and helped us to decide the type of stain and gloss with various samples.
We also had our kitchen wood flooring removed and replaced with porcelain tile. Albert and his team truly did not cut corners and opted to tile the floors the right way by removing all the appliances so that tile would be appropriately placed underneath. They expertly made sure the floor was waterproofed and leveled so that the appliances would fit back in their original positions. The tile layer expert and Albert helped in the decision of how to best choose and lay the tile for the best possible aesthetic result.
Albert's team reglazed our bathtub and recaulked the tub area. The results were stunning. They also repainted several rooms and replastered wall imperfections. Albert chose the best environmentally friendly quality paint possible and made every effort to make sure we were happy with the result.
Even after the jobs were completed, Albert was incredibly responsive to any questions I had. My husband & I are so pleased with the end result of all their work and would recommend them to friends. In fact, my lovely mother, who has discriminating tastes, could not stop raving about how wonderful Albert was throughout the process and how lucky we were to have found him. I can attest that Albert is sincere about his work, is always responsive, and makes every effort to make sure the realistic steps are taken in an ethical manner to make your design dreams possible.
