Testimonials

"Over the course of 10 years, Joe LaFace has completed multiple projects, large and small, on our home in Amagansett. It is no surprise to us that he is known as one of the best contractors on Long Island. When one finds a contractor as wonderful as Joe, it's as if you have struck gold, and, indeed we have.

The quality of Joe's work is exceptional. He uses only the best subcontractors. He has always completed every project within budget and on time. His attention to detail is beyond incredible. We were kept informed every step of the way without any surprises - ever. And if we ever called him after the project completion, he was immediately there for us, which is certainly not typical.

Joe is trustworthy, kind and professional. He is so pleasant to work with that we are proud to consider him a close family friend.

We have recommended Joe LaFace to many of our friends who have been so grateful, as we are, to have found such an extraordinary contractor."

"When we asked the seller of our house if he could provide a contractor recommendation, he promised us that Joe was the only person we needed to meet. And, with hindsight, we are sure glad we asked, for Joe is incredibly talented, professional, and hard-working. Furthermore, he is patient while always willing to suggest other practical ideas; his simple goal is to ensure you’re pleased with the end result. His entire team takes great pride in their work, and there’s good reason why every guest has sincerely complimented the craftsmanship of our renovations. It’s impossible to imagine our house without Joe’s efforts, and I could not recommend more highly working with the Laface’s."

"My wife and I have worked with Joe and Annmarie LaFace and their team at LaFace Construction on a number of projects at our house in Water Mill over the last few years including, most recently, an additional bedroom and a porch. We have always found them to do exceptionally fine work at very reasonable prices along with an ability to bring in all of their work on budget and on time. On a personal level, Joe and Annmarie's integrity is second to none and is exceeded only by their own genuine warmth and desire to make the customer more than satisfied with their work. Indeed, over the years, my wife and I have found ourselves actually looking for projects to do with Joe and Annmarie: they have become more than just great contractors - they are now, also, our dear friends."

It is our pleasure to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Joe LaFace and his contracting company, Joseph LaFace Construction Inc. Over the past 8 years, we have worked with Joe on a number of projects for our weekend home in Southampton. Joe and his team have worked on projects large and small, on the inside and outside of our home. Most recently, he completed an extensive gut renovation of the main two floors of our home. Over the past several years, the team also built our deck and pool pavilion, finished our basement, handled the installation of our gutters, and the list goes on. We could not be happier with the results.

In each of the projects, Joe was accurate in his assessments, timelines and projected costs. His direct construction team consisted of experienced, master carpenters. Joe also managed a terrific group of subcontractors. We found the level of craftsmanship and the attention to detail to be exceptionally high. Joe and his team always left the worksite remarkably clean.

Finally, and most importantly, Joe is honest and trustworthy. As we do not live in the Hamptons full time, working with Joe gave us the peace of mind that the work to our home was being done, and being done right. He kept us informed of the progress, and followed through on his promises.

We have recommended Joe to a number of our friends, and each have had similar experiences as us. We feel fortunate to have worked with Joe and highly recommend him.

"I purchased a house in East Hampton a number of years ago primarily for the spectacular deck, pergolas and outdoor construction - all made in beautiful, natural ipe wood, with impeccable details. I learned that Joe and his colleagues had built it all, and I quickly signed them up for subsequent projects including bathroom renovations, painting and hardware replacement. No job is too large or small, and equal amounts of attention and care are given to all work. I now view Joe and his team as 'caretakers' to the house, and never hesitate to involve them in all of our projects, from planning to completion. All the work is done effortlessly, without mess, and on time. I cannot recommend them enough."

- David Toti Senior, Managing Director, Cantor Fitzgerald

"Joe LaFace did a major renovation for us of a 45 year old house in Southampton. Working closely with our architect, he transformed a dilapidated, unremarkable house into a stunning gem of a home. His work is simply outstanding. Every issue we encountered in the renovation, from mold to rot, he dealt with thoughtfully and successfully. He was incredibly responsive, diligent and has the loyalty of all of his first rate sub-contractors, which allowed the project to proceed timely and flawlessly. His meticulous nature is evident in the beautiful paneling, moldings, screened in porch, cabinets, floors, and exterior work. He is a perfectionist in every respect, which is just what you want in a contractor."

- Kim and Pamela Baptiste

"So far I have worked with Joe on 3 projects, all of which came out beautifully. Trying to manage a project in the Hampton's from the city can be stressful, but Joe makes it so easy! He is accommodating and helpful in every step of the way. He is onsite and actually knows what is going on at all times, which is unfortunately rare for some business owners. He and his skilled group of tradesmen completed each project to perfection. He is friendly and kind and puts clients at ease with his friendly, yet professional, manner. The only problem? Getting more work out east so that I can work with him more!"
