We used Fine Finish Construction, Inc on our home renovation project. Vinnie and Eddie were professional. The job was done in a timely manner. From start to finish they are with you every step of the way.

Does sound liokie Fine-Finish...They tried to rip me from day they started with constuction. From uneven floors to crooked doors. No pride in the work and had to argue everyday project they done. Drywall was the worse job ever. Had to fore them and pay them off to leave. Paid someelse to fix waht they did. What a shame\. Hot head Vinny is a real a0-hole and makes other contractors look bad. They had many license under them just call consumers affairs..Thank you for posting.
I just met with Vincent Deletto from Fine Finish in Massapequa. Is this the person to stay away from? I could find anything on BBB website. Please let me know whatever you can before I hire. Thank you.

How or why would you give anyone $74,000 with out a delivery drop and then let it go on for 2 years is insane Buyer Beware. i was a contractor for 32 years. I would only take a small down payment until the material was dropped off. This is for everyone you must set up a payment schedule. First is a deposit ( good faith money) no big money til they start the Job, and stick to your payment schedule. In this economy you don't want to pay for material or payroll on a different job.

Without a doubt best experience I had about renovating my new home was to hire Fine Finish Construction for this project. I couldn't even imagine doing my entire house without his guidance and advice. Vinny ensured to meet all my expectations of my dream house within my price range.

I was referred to Fine Finish Construction by a friend and I must say I'm very impressed with the work done to my house. Fine Finish was detailed and did exactly what I was looking for. I would definitely work with them again in the future and would recommend to anyone

Very happy with the work this company did for me. Everything in my house came out looking wonderful and just what I have always dreamed of. All the workers made sure to clean up at the end of each day and accommodate all of goals for my dream home. It was worth every cent. I have received so many compliments on it. I would love to hire Fine Finish again.

Vinny had some great ideas and worked very hard to stick to our budget and timeline for our renovation. He aimed to please. Anytime I ever asked Vinny to do something he was very reasonable and it was completed in a reasonable manner. I have received nothing short of rave reviews on the finished project.

After years of imagining my home Fine Finish Construction made it a reality. Vinny spent hours with my husband and I to make sure we were satisfied. Throughout the project I was kept up to date on the status of the project. I would definitely recommend Vinny again.

I also have been hit by every tactic possible from this inspector . I literally finally received a call back after a year and a half leaving messages . I explained how he is single highhandedly holding up me up from hurricane sandy repairs and lift . I am at my wits end and still waiting , as news of another variance hold up .
