Services & Specialties
Comprehensive restorations and gut renovations

FR Review:
Edmund Lewis’s expertise in reconstructing details in 19th-century residences is “vast and refined.” The firm keeps busy with cosmetic fix-ups, gut renovations, and restorations from Harlem brownstones to Central Park West kitchens to Brooklyn Heights landmark homes. The likable Lewis is said to be a “down-to- earth contractor with a jolly sense of humor” who makes projects enjoyable for all. We hear that the firm is as attentive to its clients as it is to the bottom line.

Lewis began his career as a professional painter over twenty-five years ago in London. After a stint as the renovation project supervisor for the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, Lewis opened his own firm in 1998. Today, he personally oversees the day-to-day building process with a staff of twenty and a group of subcontractors who work “hard and fast.” Sources praise the crew (from Lewis to the guy carrying the garbage) for being “very respectful.” Gut renovations start at $500,000 and reach upwards of $3 million. Busy clients are A-OK with the cost, remarking that they appreciate Lewis answering e-mails and texts on his cell.

Representative Client Comments:
“Very professional at all levels.” “Ed took responsibility for my previous mistakes.” “We moved into a new apartment and we hired Ed’s company to paint—the work was very neat and professional and the crew was courteous to us and our neighbors.” “Ed even consulted on our audio system and installed it quickly with excellent results.” “His subs are skilled ladies and gentlemen.” “Worked very well with the decorator I hired.” “I cannot speak highly enough about Eddie and his company. I was in dire straits and they did an amazing, sophisticated, beautiful, on time job involving a whole new bathroom! Not to mention Eddie’s constant humor, warmth and human understanding.” “Edmund and his skilled team of painters and plasterers made my kitchen look new—the work was superb and came on time and on budget.”

Bottom Line:
I have recommended Eddie and his company many times already and will continue to do so. We would work with him again in a second; we just need a second home!

Project Description & Comments:
We hired Eddie to undertake a major remodeling of a brownstone. The project involved the installation of a new kitchen, several new bathrooms, reconfiguring living space and plumbing, new windows, and a complete paint job. Eddie and his team of sub-contractors are consummate professionals. Their work is of the highest standard and they deliver on time. They are extremely easy to work with because of their excellent and frequent communications and because they are committed to quality in everything they do. They will discuss every aspect of the job with you and make sure that you are aware of all the possibilities before embarking on a course of action. Their site and project management is of the highest order. My husband and I managed a significant renovation without the services of an architect, and we believe that it would not have been possible, nor would the outcome have been so successful, were it not for Eddie and his team.
        Cost of Project: $500,001 or more
