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.
