The work went very smoothly and the quality of work was excellent. Mark, my main contact at Empire, was always reachable and extremely responsive to phone calls and texts. He explained everything about the process and answered all of my questions promptly. He knows the Westchester area very well and knows the ins-and-outs of getting permits and timing of how things go. He also has connections with quality licensed electricians and plumbers, which we ended up engaging, given the nature of the remodel. As to the actual work, Empire worked quickly and efficiently. My home was cleaned up after each day of work. Mark made some design recommendations here and there, which we appreciated. For example, Mark mentioned about a sink front tray for storing sponges. I didn't even know about it, but I thought was a great idea, so we ended up getting it. Since our project included tearing walls down, Mark forewarned us about potential piping and etc. that could be inside walls that may require extra work. When we had issues (such as potentially rerouting pipes), per Mark's recommendation, we had licensed plumber and electrician weigh in on how to proceed and with the their input we felt we had a better grasp on how to decide on moving forward. Empire also has connections to very good cabinet and countertop vendors. While we got our tiles and other items from Home Depot, we ended up getting our kitchen cabinet, countertop, and bathroom vanity top from a vendor he recommended. The quality of the materials were very good and the vendor had a wider selection of countertops than Home Depot offered. Several weeks after the construction was completed, he checked up on us, which we appreciated. If you are looking to do a remodel project, I highly recommend Mark and Empire. Note: The approximate cost of service I entered below excludes materials and includes entire cost of labor (Empire + electrician + plumbing). We ended up engaging the electrician and plumber that Empire recommended separately. Materials probably cost about $20K. So the entire project cost us about $50K
