“Having already combined two luxury apartments on the southern tip of Manhattan, when the third adjacent apartment became available, we almost did not buy it so we would not have to deal with renovating and contractors again.

To our delight, the entire process with the “Zako Family” was great! A wonderful family and group of professionals who delivered on time and on budget. Our home is now the showplace of our building and we are always surprised when people tell us how beautiful the workmanship is and how the design is exquisite.

We would recommend the Zako professionals without reservation.”

Dear Friends at SMZako,

“My wife and I are so grateful for your work in helping us to rebuild our house. In February 2010, during a particularly cold period of winter, our heat went out and we had six burst pipes! Needless to say, our house we suffered enormous damage.

It took us a while to figure out what we wanted to do in the “rebuild”. After we caught our breath, Spiros and Michael were very responsive in giving us a fair estimate of the cost of the rebuild and renovation. They brought in a highly qualified crew of skilled workers, who took over the house for a period of weeks. They completely replaced two bathrooms, which entailed new electricals, sheetrock, tile and marble installation, plumbing, lighting, sheetrock, painting and installation of plumbing fixtures. They also rebuilt the lower level of our house. They did everything from replacing exterior windows and doors, insulation, electrical wiring, sheetrocking and painting.

The workers from SMZako were clean, efficient and highly skilled. And — as an extra bonus — they were very nice people. They left the house clean every night and removed the construction debris on an ongoing basis. We found them to be skilled and trustworthy. They even helped us to find subcontractors (like stone suppliers) who were affordable and efficient. The work was completed within the time frame that was estimated.

In sum, we never wanted to renovate the house–the “opportunity” fell on us because of a heating and plumbing failure. However, SMZako helped us to turn “lemons into lemonade”: They made the renovation process as painless as possible, and left us with a “like new” home! Thank you for helping us is such an efficient and professional manner!”

“Nice helpful people. Very good professional work. On price and on time.”

Mrs. Michaels

“We are delighted with the work carried out by SM Zako. They were efficient, courteous, timely and reasonable on the pocket!! Their work was top quality and when asked they were provided great advice. The team went well over the call of duty, even helping us with light and furniture selections and making sure that every detail was just as we wanted.

By the end of the job our relationship had become a friendship, that we look forward to continuing in to the future.”
