FR Review:
Known for being ‘pro-client, responsive and responsible,’ Capital Craftsmen has a reputation as a consistent contracting firm that gets the job done. Established in 1984 by Liam Egan, the firm does a variety of styles and projects ranging from full-apartment gut renovations to custom homes. With thirty-five employees, the company is nothing if not well-staffed. Capital Craftsmen has a mobile office on the Upper East Side with a foreman, project manager, demolition, carpentry, tile and stone, plaster and painting crews. (Electrical, plumbing and other specialty work are all subcontracted out to licensed firms). In addition, there's a warehouse in Long Island City and a main office in Great Neck, that houses project managers, estimators and administrative staff.

The company usually does four to five large projects a year, but will take on smaller jobs. Three-week projects are the smallest that they will consider and may consist of a kitchen or bathroom renovation. Capital Craftsmen’s focus, however, is full-apartment renovations on a scale of two-bedroom apartments and larger. Most of their jobs are in Manhattan and range from 2,500 to 4,000 square feet. Recognized for giving good value to their clients, Capital Craftsmen estimates every job upfront and requires a 25 percent deposit, with the remaining charges staggered over the construction timeframe.

Representative Client Comments:
“Liam is really solid and stands by his word.” “I’ve worked with them for ten years.” “There is a nice layering of management. Good team." “I would give them an A for custom, sub- contractors and millwork.” “Stephen is really easy to work with.” “They don’t nickel and dime you.” “Terrific with tough time table.” “I was really lucky to find Liam and his team.” "The team is hardworking, honest, outstanding craftsmen.” “Meticulous about every detail.” “So good, they renovated while my parents were in their apartment.” “Completed in time frame and on budget.” “I’ve been working with them for years. Renovations from $150,000 to $2 million.” “Not the cheapest, but worth every cent.” “Stephen is not only organized, but also very diplomatic with clients. Puts concerns at ease.” “Liam is the go-to guy to get stuff done. He can solve any construction problem.” “They are thorough and competent.” “The most punctual contractor I’ve worked with.” “They deliver.” “Well priced.” “Everyone affiliated with them is at a very high level.” “My architect used another contrac- tor for his personal project which didn’t turn out nearly as nice as my project with Capital Craftsmen.” “I have used the services of Capital Craftsmen for both my house renovation out in Montauk and my penthouse apartment in the city. Both projects went as smoothly as a renovation can go. I emphatically trust Liam and his crew. Their confidence and knowl- edge put my mind at ease throughout the entire process.” “They are my go-to contractor in New York, no question!”

I have worked with Liam Egan and his company-Capital Craftsmen for over 15 years, on numerous residential projects and would hire them instantly because I would be assured of the completion of the project on time and within budget.
