Working with Intrabuild was a pleasure.
Construction is a hassle and stressful but they ensured that the process went smoothly. They were very response to any questions I had and kept me apprised of the work progress with pictures. Most important, he was always on time for appointments and kept the work on schedule. There were no delays. They were professional, neat and quiet.
They are a very modern and efficient company,
managed by experts in the field (Nik and Chris) that are extremely knowledgeable in planning and conducting a renovation. they work as a team whose collaborators have high quality and expertise. the end result is a top quality product and a pleasant step by step experience.
The Intrabuild crew is awesome.
From the first phone conversation to the last few finishing touches, I have been so impressed with the professionalism, expert knowledge, respectful attitude, and clear enthusiasm for what they do. The workspace was kept neat and well protected. The job was planned out superbly and his team – cabinet maker, plumber, electrician, tile installer, and general contractors – worked so efficiently that the project was completed in only 5-6 weeks (right on target!). There was no sacrifice on quality whatsoever – even within that quick time frame all the work was immaculate and really beautiful. My biggest problem is getting used to having this wonderful new kitchen and bathroom! These fellows take a lot of pride in their work because they are true craftsmen. If you need a first-rate contractor who will not only respect your space but also your ideas, who will share his expertise through advice and suggestions without being overbearing, and whose love for his trade thoroughly permeates every aspect of his business then I say with 100% confidence to look no further than Nick’s team!
Being our first renovation
and hearing lots of horror stories from friends, we were expecting this process to be painful. From the initial walk-through to the end of the renovation we have been very pleased with our experience with Nick and his team. It has been a pleasure to work with Nick; he is fair, organized and takes great pride in his work. We purchased a dated co-op in Woodside, Queens and knew right away that we wanted to renovate before moving in. Our project entailed creating an open plan between the kitchen and living room, updating the kitchen and bathroom, refinishing all floors, and creating a new entry to the 2nd bedroom. Working with our designer, Nick, and his team, we were able to do so much more. His bid was fair and appropriate for the work to be done and we were happy with the timeline proposed. The team hit the ground running and worked through the demolition and re-framing quickly. Nick was flexible with us while we were juggling design decisions and helped to keep the project on track. We found him to be very honest and upfront as to hiccups and timing issues when they arose. We are very happy with the experience and the results and have referred him to several friends and family.
We gutted our kitchen,
which included knocking down some walls, filling in a door frame, and installing new floors and custom cabinets and countertops. We also re-tiled our bathroom floor. All the work was started and completed on schedule and Nick and his team did a really wonderful job. Nick even checked-in with us in person the day before he left for Greece for the holidays to make sure all the details of the kitchen were just right.
Would just like to mention
that working with Nick’s team was a very pleasant experience in all aspects, from communication to responsiveness to fair dealing throughout.

Our renovation included a new kitchen
refinishing the bathrooms, refinishing the floors and updating our interior doors. Nick was extremely accommodating throughout the renovation process and was very easy to work with. We had a relatively tight budget and he was able to accommodate everything we were hoping to achieve by offering great recommendations for work and purchasing. Nick was also on top of schedule, and most of the project was completed ahead of our expectations. Nick was responsive to finishing details after we moved in to ensure we were happy with the final product. Overall his team delivered a product that we are very happy with – our apartment looks great, and a lot of that credit goes to Nick and his team for listening to our vision and concerns, and making thoughtful suggestions.
Intrabuild remained fully committed to our project
from start to finish. They listen to your needs, views and concerns, then ensures his team handles each subtle detail with expertise. When something is not completed as expected, the team diligently redo the work to the agreed condition. We initially interviewed five contractors for our project, and received 3 quotes. Nick was not the least expensive nor the most expensive, but he offered to include the finishing touches on our apartment to ensure we got the most out of our renovation. Ultimately, we decided to add extras along the way which lengthened the project time frame by several weeks and stretched our cost slightly, however they did thier best to complete all the extras while not adding labor to the total bill. They are an extremely competent, patient and detailed contractor. We would highly recommend him for any apartment renovation in the city, no matter how stringent the coop rules.
They are punctual. Their quality
of work is exceptional. Their prices are very reasonable. They are always readily available at any time either by phone or to meet at the site, always when it is convenient for you. They are neat and clean. They are extremely helpful with choosing all fixtures and accessories, always getting the best prices.
First, the quality of work is high.
Second, the team is very knowledgeable, and was particularly helpful when we were deciding on finishings, such as counter-top materials. Third, the team operates with a high level of integrity. There are a ton of moving parts in a renovation, particularly a gut renovation such as ours. So when there was an unexpected challenge/error, it was resolved quickly, without hesitation and without sacrificing quality of work.
You can trust Nick.
He is a great guy and a true professional – Easy to communicate with and very determined to make the homeowner happy. The final product is beautiful and solid.
Nick and his team
were very professional, reliable, and did impeccable work.
We hired Nick and his team to
do a rigorous renovation of our coop unit: gut renovation of the kitchen, bathroom, and we re-did walls and relocated some doors. Being first time home-owners, Nick couldn’t have been more accommodating and helpful throughout the way. We were both hands-on but also needed a lot of design guidance, and Nick’s extensive experience on working on similar projects gave him a wealth of experience that we could draw from. Nick’s company was also available to answer questions throughout the project and patiently answered all of our questions, even the tiniest detail. Looking back, having moved in to the unit, we just marvel at the top-notch quality work that Nick’s team has done and consider ourselves fortunate to have worked with him. We recommend his team’s services without reservation!

This was one of the best customer service experiences
I’ve had in my life. Three of Nick’s most common expressions are, “Don’t worry,” “No problem” and “Awesome. Awesome.” Nick was a great communicator. As I looked for a contractor for my job, I found that it was really hard to get them to respond to texts, emails, phonecalls. But, Nick always did all of the above in a timely manner. Nick was also very nice and flexible and a good listener when it came to instructions and desires. Nick was professional. He has all the licenses and insurances that you could need. I said that he need to have $1M of insurance and he said, “I have 5M.” That’s pretty reassuring when you’re coming into this work! I got a lot of quotes – I think maybe 5 in all. Nick’s quote was way lower than the competitors and the time he said it would take was nearly half. This matched with his professionalism and good communication almost seemed too good to be true. When Nick said the work was just about done, I came to see it and found a few things that were off/not completed/not super well done. In my mind these were big things, but when I told Nick about them, he said they were all pretty minor and he would take care of them right away. His team came back the next day to get most of it. Unfortunately, a couple of things lingered a little longer than they probably should have after that, but after all of Nick’s flexibility, good work, and kindness with me, I think this wasn’t a big deal. The work is officially done now and I’m really happy with it.
Nick and Chris are very professional
and conscientious professionals. They completed the contracted scope of work and met my expectations. They also satisfactorily dealt with the inevitable and unexpected construction challenges.
Nick and team touched our whole apartment
in one capacity or another, and the space is now beautiful and functional. In short, we love it. He offers just enough hand holding for a newbie like me. Nick’s design advice was invaluable. Having done this again and again, he was able to steer me away from ideas that seemed like a neat option but were either impractical, likely to break or too specific for resale. For example, he helped me pick out a floor stain that evened out all the varieties of my vintage floor and unified them with the new kitchen floor and various patches we put in, even though that stain was darker than I originally thought we would go. Now, I love it and couldn’t imagine it another way. Nick also helped big time with the kitchen design – he gave me a super but overlooked layOut when walking through the space, and then I used IKD to draw up plans using IKEA bodies. Nick’s team was lovely to work with as well, from the firemen to the electricians to the carpenters. Although we were ultimately delayed, Nick did his best to create a work plan that minimized down time as we moved our stuff in. Construction is a bumpy road, but Nick was the best copilot for the endeavor.
We had a great experience working with Nick.
He was incredibly professional and helpful to us first-time renovators. He made everything extremely clear and always found a solution to some tricky problems.
Nick and his team were fantastic from start to finish.
Our renovation was extensive (involving all new plumbing and electric in a 100-year old townhouse, four new baths and one new kitchen). But it was not a “gut” renovation; preserving the original details, including wood work and plaster moldings, was very important to us. Nick and his team understood what we wanted and needed. They maintained the integrity of our house while modernizing the space. For us, it’s the perfect outcome.
As first-time renovators
(who had been contemplating the process for years), Nick was the perfect contractor. He was prompt, thoughtful, and realistic. He had worked on many units within our co-ops in Clinton Hill, so we felt confident that he knew the buildings, and that there would be no surprises. My husband and I were kind of all over the place about what we wanted, and he did a fantastic job of listening, proposing creative options, and then patiently letting us decide. He was honest about the budget and timeline, and if we ever asked for anything that would really increase cost, he sat us down and walked us through how much over budget it might take us. He was incredibly accessible throughout the process, and he even sent his business partner with us to pick out tile when we were feeling overwhelmed. Our finished apartment is beautiful, and exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend Nick!
Nick and his team were wonderful to work with.
This was our first remodel project and they were patient with our questions and even went with us to pick out our floor and back splash tiles. Our apartment is in old prewar building so they had to redo our electrical wiring. You wouldn’t know our hallway walls and arch had to be broken through to replace the electrical panel. They did an amazing job putting it all back together better than it was before. They handled all the coop approval and building permit paperwork. The construction team was very diligent about staying clean and tidy preventing dirt from being tracked into the rest of the apartment and they worked well with our building super to coordinate deliveries and elevator trips. We’re very pleased with the quality of the kitchen installation. They made sure to address all the punch list items and continued to reach out weeks after the installation to make sure everything continued to be perfect. The project came in on time and in budget.
Nick has a great team of people
their carpenters and subcontractors were all very talented and respectful. They always took the time to make sure they understood the design intent and were always careful to do things the right way. More importantly, they always fixed a problem with a smile if something wasn’t quite right. There was no fighting or finger pointing – it was clear that everyone just wanted to do the job as best as possible.
Nick and I met several times
at his current remodel sites between signing up. Very knowledgeable about the my building and the coop process (Clinton Hill coops) which sped things up. Provided detailed breakdown of the job and stuck to it. Timing estimates were accurate and end result fantastic
I am very grateful to Nick and his team
for making our renovation a reality. From start to finish, they were great to work with. Nick helped us find ways to to be able to afford to do all of the work we wanted to do within our budget, and executed the project on budget. I always felt very comfortable with Nick and his team of subcontractors in the apartment, and the work was high quality. Nick was very helpful resolving any issues that arose during the course of construction and made sure we were happy with with the results. Additionally, the superintendent of my building and front desk staff also gave his team good reviews and said they were great to work with – which is no small matter in a shared living situation. As a design professional I have very high standards for quality and a particular eye, and Nick understood that and was terrific to work with even when we were not the easiest clients. We are extremely happy with our new apartment and would work with them again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a residential contractor who is friendly, competent, economical, straightforward and honest.
If I could give 10 stars I would!
Nick was actually my top choice when going thru bids and I actually requested for him specifically based on the Sweeten blogs. Initially Nick was not available as he is busy with other projects and mine was a just a small job. However, he gave me a chance to work together and it was a fantastic experience working with Nick and his team, especially his project manager Dimitri. My past experiences with contractors was horrible, and those horror stories were true. Working with Nick and Dimitri really changed this experience – they are super detailed and would also anticipate and solve any problems we encounter. I love that I could share my ideas with them and they would give also their point of view. I also appreciate their patience as I did change some job scopes along the way, given some unexpected situations. I would certainly work with him again and definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for high quality construction at a good price.
Working with a contractor is all about trust
and we trust Nick’s team. We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have worked with Nick and Chris on our apartment combination. We have a home we love living in; the results exceeded our expectations. We embarked on this project knowing that renovating in New York City can be a nightmare. Our project was not without bumps in the road, but at every step, Nick and Chris steered us through the process. They were fair, clear, accessible, and knowledgeable.
Partnering and working with
Partnering and working with Nick, Chris, Dmitiri and their team was honestly the best decision we could have made for our renovation project and they completely exceeded all our expectations.
Intrabuild took the time to understand my needs
and helped to recommend and coordinate all the trades needed, returned all of my calls and communication promptly and did an amazing job of furnishing our space. It’s modern, warm and a great place to “come home to.” Highly Recommended! “
