Anna DePaula, Saint Peter's University
We completely renovated a townhouse in downtown Jersey City that was in terrible shape. In fact, there were some big issues that we didn’t even know about when we started. For example, our entire back wall was unstable. We were so glad to have Billy and his whole staff, especially Mike and Mario, helping us. There were different teams of professionals for different aspects of the rebuild. Every team did a great job, especially when it came to managing those big “surprises” like a new back wall or roof. Our home is beautiful and tailored exactly to our specifications. Thank you!
