"Thank you. It looks beautiful. You and your people have been great. I am recommending you to my neighbors, Aja and Trent. She and her husband are saving up to have their basement finished. Their sons play here with my grandsons after school and already love going down our basement to play. We are going to invite the parents over to see how wonderful the basement looks.
Thank you again." - Joanne and Bob
"Thanks....BTW....we love the room. You were right when you said "you will love the end results" Theresa V., Ballston Lake
"We hired Capital District Contractors to build a screen room and patio in 2011. Dave was very easy to work with and continually strived to make us satisfied whenever we had a concern. Dave's design ideas and his crew workmanship proved to be better than we had envisioned. The overall project was a success and the cost was very reasonable. We have received many positive comments from friends and neighbors regarding our screen room and patio. We look forward to working with Dave again in the future. Thank you"

"We are very happy with our porch. Your team was excellent. Each and every person I dealt with was wonderful. I also want to comment on your service recovery—we only had a few issues—and the instance one was discovered it was IMMEDIATELY addressed. Very impressive! And not to sound repetitive --we were so happy with your company from beginning to end!" - Kristin and Tom
"I'm a very satisfied previous customer. A few years ago you built a deck for me. I have a prefab concrete front porch that's in need of some repairs and has some other issues. I'm considering replacing it with a constructed porch made out of Trex or some other composite. I'd like to discuss this possibility with you and get a quote at your earliest convenience. Thank you." - John, Waterford NY
"My master bedroom bathroom renovation looks great! . I will add your $500 deposit to the balance due. Many thanks for a great job." - Christina
"Sincerely appreciate all that you've done to see that we are happy, and able to move in on time. Truly appreciate the added gifts you provided. You certainly made us feel as valued customers. Please do not hesitate to use me as a reference!" - T
"I have been involved with numerous contractors over the last 37 years (built 3 homes and put 2 major additions on. This is number 3), and have never experienced the generosity you have demonstrated. In fact, I have always been "nickeled and dimed" for every little ridiculous thing. Thank you so much for being different. Special recognition to Wayne. He seems to be on top of everything! He has demonstrated strong project management skills and has kept the project moving as fast as he can. His frequent communications are much appreciated." - Tony A.
"Had someone spontaneously stop by today and tell me how much he admired the addition… that’s in addition to the other neighbor who said the same thing yesterday…" - James C. - Mechanicville, NY
"Our room is beautiful ... you guys have done a terrific job and have been very understanding of our needs and have helped me out." - George W.
"My husband and I are very happy with the way our kitchen is coming along. Mark is a perfectionist, I can not complement him enough on the work he has done. Frank has been great too, his work is so clean and he really takes the time to look over his work to make sure it's perfect. And of course Jacob is phenomenal, he is passionate for what he does and we can't thank him enough either. Thank you very much for bringing Mark, Frank and Jacob on our project. They stepped up to make sure our kitchen came out great. I'm going to miss them when the project is over!" Thank you, Kathleen H
I just wanted to let you know that Phil did a superb job on the window trim today. The trim is basically flawless. Both he are Bill are true craftsmen, which is pretty rare these days! Kenneth H.
Replaced existing deck with a much nicer screened in deck. Added 2 windows to family room. Dave and his crew are wonderful. The new deck is even nicer than I imagined. The price was very reasonable. Dave answers all questions quickly. I'm so pleased that I found an honest and reliable contractor. I highly recommend him and I would definitely use him again. Nick K., Ballston Spa NY 5-star-rating Dave Bernacki Capital District Contractors Inc.
Addition of great room and deck. I would highly recommend Dave and his crew. Very professional.... Excellent value for the cost. Communication was the only area that could have been a little better, i.e. if the workers who were scheduled for a certain date would be delayed, call and let the homeowner know ahead of time. Overall, great work! Colleen D., Albany NY 4-star-rating
We had our Kitchen bath remodeled. The owner reviewed days events /game plan with homeowner and project manager. They forecasted for materials delivery when asked for timeline/dates. Project manager was well informed, stopped in for notes. Attention to details. Fast knowledgeable workers arrived early each day (on time) 7:30 and put a full days work in. Full crew sent demo was quick. 3 days in still a full crew. Same crew sent daily was nice, they knew the job/their work, we knew them. Cleaned up daily. The reuse of many materials needed care in preventing damage, they were on top of it. Sent electrician out on a Saturday to work. Pleasant surprise. Best Response via txt, if busy may take to the end of the day to reply. Pricing is very fair, no gouging.
Only negative: Very busy contractor with many jobs at one time. Weather plays a factor (delays) in scheduling start dates and where crews can be sent depending on jobs to be completed (decks/stairs) versus inside job. If your not in a hurry, can book early and project a later start date, then I would highly recommend. Denise B., Mechanicville NY 4-star-rating

We had a three season sunroom and deck added to our home the summer of 2007. Dave Bernacki met with us to review our plan and helped modify it to fit our budget. Dave and his crew were easy to work with, punctual and neat. They cleaned up the job site on a daily basis. The weather cooperated and we had our new addition within approximately 5 weeks, with no surprise additional costs. We are very pleased with the finished product . . . It's just what we wanted.

Capital District Contractors Deck TestimonialI couldn't be more pleased with the process and the outcome of this project. Joe worked with me from beginning to end on what was a complicated retrofit of a deck that had multiple, oddly shaped angles. He also built an extra set of stairs from the top deck to the side yard. The deck was especially difficult to demo and build as it is surrounded by ponds. He met me at the supplier's store twice to go over product and color choices. He and his staff always cleaned up at the end of the day and took extra care not to contaminate the ponds with construction debris. He saw issues with electrical outlets that were not to his liking around the ponds and fixed them of his own accord.
This company was one of three estimates I obtained. The first guy ran for the hills given the size and complexity of the job. The second estimate was thousands above what Joe quoted. Joe and his staff always showed up when they said they would and on time... which I have found to be an increasingly rare commodity among contractors these days. It was refreshing and appreciated.
Joe is an absolute professional and a great guy. He aims for excellence and it shows. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is considering a deck. As they told me in the store where I picked out my products, "he is the best." I plan to use him for any and all exterior work I have in the future. In fact he will be installing a sliding glass door for me in a few weeks.
If you want a deck, this is your man. Debbie F., Clifton Park NY 5-star-rating Dave Bernacki Capital District Contractors Inc.
Prior to contracting with Dave I spoke with several previous clients. EVERYONE was TOTALLY PLEASED with their final results.....even the two clients who had difficulties during their construction process. My project required a variance and Dave referred me to a draftsman who drew the plans and guided me through this process without one delay or problem. My initial plan was to do a screened porch. After framing was complete I decide that I wanted to a sun room instead. Dave was very accommodating and adapted my plans to create a beautiful sun room. Throughout the process he answered all my questions and addressed every one of my concerns. Follow up phone calls were typically returned the same day. The project manager was on site almost daily checking to make sure things were going well and was also clarified any of my questions/concerns. His crews were professional, courteous and knowledgeable. I was also pleased with the quality of his subcontractors who always came on the day and time that Dave said they would. During construction materials were always neat and there was rarely any debris left at the end of the day. It is obvious that Dave cares about his clients. He and his team are dedicated to reaching their goal of having clients thrilled with the quality and look of their completed project.

Every time we look out at our new deck from our kitchen windows, we marvel at how artistic and classy it is. Its completion has fulfilled a dream we've held for the ten years we have owned this home. Thanks to your expertise and business ethic we have realized that goal in a painless and effortless manner. We cannot speak highly enough to our friends and acquaintances about how pleased we've been with your work! From the very beginning of our project you assimilated the details of our vision without making us feel like we were the "pains" or "dreamers" that we probably were!

We would just like to say thank you for the outstanding job that you and your staff did on our new four season room. We were very pleased throughout the entire process. Your crew was always polite and professional. It's rare today to find someone who not only give you what you agree to, but exceeds your expectations. We have gotten so many comments on how great the room came out. We spend just about every evening in the room. Unfortunately, the dog (Jeter) thinks the room is his. I look forward to doing business again in the future with you. D.B., Clifton Park NY 5-star-rating Dave Bernacki Capital District Contractors Inc.
We are pleased to let you know that we have selected Capital District Contractors to work with us on the home addition we discussed. We were initially impressed with your presentation at our on-site meeting and, quite candidly, your references were stellar. We visited the Jasmine home in Malta and spoke with two additional references by phone and in person, as well as reviewing your online portfolio. We are confident that your company will deliver a superior product at a reasonable price, but more importantly, we believe that your responsiveness and strong focus on 'getting it right' for the customer are the right fit for this important project.

Dave has been my customer since 1998 when I worked at Bellevue Builders. Dave is a very dependable contractor who I would have do my work for me at any time. Since then I have moved to a company called KAMCO SUPPLY . Dave has followed me over here and we work very closely everyday to order materials that I supply him to do all of his jobs. I am pleased to be teamed up with Dave and am proud to call him my friend. R.B., Albany NY 5-star-rating

David came to our house and took his time listening to what we wanted to do for an addition, may great cost effective recommendations and gave us additional things to think about before starting a major project.
This is a top notch company. Although we decided to not have the work done we absolutely would have used Capital District and will use them for other future projects. Very honest and thorough. Also refreshing to have a company give you a quote but also honest feedback on if the decision or plan you have is in your best interest. Would highly recommend!! Emily T., Guilderland NY 5-star-rating
I found Dave and his staff to be very accommodating. They are a busy company, handling many projects and somehow manages to keep them all on schedule! Dave and his project manager handle the scheduling, ordering and book keeping themselves - not through a central office. I imagine this helps keep costs down with less overhead, but also requires the home owner to stay on top of expenses.
I did not encounter any major problems during my project. I utilized Dave's architect for plans and they required a few revisions which is to be expected but it was quick turnaround time. Dave made great suggestions along the way and helped us to create a vision for what we wanted. We did not have all the details in our mind worked out and we relied heavily on Dave's experience.
Dave was accommodating to changes we wanted to make along the way such as adding the roof, adding additional electrical service etc. This project was scheduled to be completed in time for the holidays and I was often impatient. Dave however, maintained his professionalism and worked to keep things on track. He was patient with us when we were stressed, as it is never easy having your house torn up! He walked us through the process of what to expect and reassured us along the way personally returning texts or messages.
The company utilizes licensed professionals i.e. master carpenter and licensed electricians etc. (the last project we did the company we used did not we later learned). All of the tradesmen we encountered work directly for him (carpenter, sheetrocker, electrician and finisher for trim etc). The only things subbed out were painter and tile work - both of whom have long history with Dave and did excellent work. I was very comfortable with all of the workers at my house and found them to be polite and courteous. I also have a large dog who is very curious and all were patient with him following them around etc. at times!
All in all I would not have done anything differently. I felt confident in Dave's ability to ensure the project was completed in a quality manner and they corrected any details along the way with professionalism. I was impressed that he sent a cleaning crew over to help me get the house cleaned up for the holidays and even sent a few guys over to help move furniture out when we decided to include refinishing the floors (another suggestion that I was not planning on but glad I took his advice and did it). It came out beautiful and is everything I wanted. Granted we spent more than we originally planned, but this is due to our add-ons not up-charges from company. I feel that our house is so much more modern now and we our no longer nervous about our electric. We hope to have them back to do the screened in patio room at some point!

I has my basement finished. Excellent job. Created per my design. Included a family room/ home theatre, bedroom, and bathroom. Installed a grinder pump for the full bath. Very good quality work. Barbara T., Clifton Park NY 4-star-rating
We hired Capital District Contractors for two projects in our home. Approximately four years ago they finished our basement. More recently they built an addition onto the house and did other remodeling work. Both projects were finished on time and on budget. Dave was able to offer creative design options to achieve the look and function we wanted. The team showed-up as scheduled and our phone calls were promptly returned. We have recommended them to our friends and will continue to do so. J.G., Clifton Park NY 5-star-rating

We couldn't be more pleased with the home improvement projects you have completed for us. Our deck and finished basement have exceeded our expectations. Your fair and honest business practices are rare in the world of contractors. We have found your business partners to be respectful, hardworking individuals who focus on the small details in order to get the job done right. What truly sets Capital District Contractors apart from the rest is your customer service during and after projects have been completed. If problems arise you always resolve the problem in a fair and timely fashion. The Gonzalez' 5-star-rating
They came to give estimate to repair screen porch area. Our porch frame was rotten and I wanted to see if anyone would work with the footprint and rebuild the frame. The representative pointed out that the structure was positioned incorrectly and therefor was not structurally sound within the footprint. They would not be able to do anything but knock it down entirely and rebuild properly. The representative also pointed out that the frame was not positioned over any supporting walls beneath it. This was something everyone else missed. Gretchen D., Niskayuna NY 5-star-rating Dave Bernacki Capital District Contractors Inc.
Sorry that I missed you today when you stopped by for the final inspection. I really appreciate all you and your crew did for the screen room. I’m very happy with how it turned out and am willing to act as a reference anytime you need – or if someone wants to see it as an example.

I had a deck that was about 20 years old and in need of replacement. Dave showed me other projects that his company had done and I loved the idea of replacing the old deck with a new back porch which really added to the usefulness of the space. We can sit on the porch rain or shine and be dry and the sun doesn't drive us off the deck. Dave, Bill and Jim did an outstanding job completing the project on time and within budget.

Capital District Contractors and Decks ripped out a pressure treated landing with accompanying stairs that had warped and deteriorated located off a patio door and replaced it with a beautiful composite deck.
The deck is extremely well constructed with attention to detail and quality. I am extremely happy with the outcome. The contractors were skilled with composite and very helpful with design. Although not a complicated deck, I had estimates and feedback from two other contractors who indicated to me that it might be a problem to do the landing with step down because the area was a bit tight, but Capital District Decks knew exactly what I wanted and there was no issue.
Furthermore out of the three estimates Capital District was the middle range and by choosing them I saved over $5,000 over the high end estimate.
The only caveat is that there were delays in the start up as it was tentatively scheduled to begin in September and never got underway until October. However it was very understandable because the weather last year was constantly rainy and stormy. Also once they started my deck they didn't stop. Very diligent and timely. Worked straight through and on weekends and even in the rain when it wasn't a complete downpour.
They were courteous, polite and gave me receipts for every thing and they accomplished it in under a week despite the bad weather. The finished deck was for the price quoted. If you're primary concern is quality at a reasonable price, and you're a bit flexible if there is a delay in the start of your project I would heartily recommend them.
