"First, let me state, I don't make a habit of writing recommendations for folks unless it is well deserving. In this case, you can't go wrong choosing Howie Coluzzi as your GC for any medium to large scale projects. We vetted 7 GCs to finish our basement and none were able to provide the creative thoughts along with the associated pricing details that Howie provided. We checked "all" his references and not a one was unhappy. He finished on time and kept us in the loop in terms of next steps throughout the entire process. If we wanted minor changes, Howie's crew was more than accommodating. We've referred him to others and they all are very happy with the work performed on their properties, some of which were projects larger than ours. Moreover, we've had several other GCs come by for small, hourly tasks and they all state the work done on our basement is impeccable. Some have even stated that maybe they should try and link up with Howie to share some of their business. AND, the price was more than reasonable. I strongly recommend Howie Coluzzi be the 1st GC you contact for any work you are considering. Believe me when I write, we've already done all the homework for you."

"The basement is fantastic, way beyond expectations. You and your team really did a great job. Thanks!"

Steve L.

"You were very professional and followed the contract, which was only adjusted when we added things. You went the extra mile and helped me at the tile store and when I went too far, you had my husband's pocketbook in mind. You have a great sense of humor, are easy to work with, took care of everything, and didn't stress me with little details. Your guys were also very professional. Our last basement guy was a nightmare and you were definitely what we wanted. We're very, very happy we went with you."

Michelle B.

"Howie, Nice job! Thanks for your (frequent) communications with Vicky, for your calm demeanor, your creative problem solving, and your professional approach to the job."

"We had a great experience with Function Basement Design and we absolutely love the outcome of our basement. Howie was wonderful to work with and we felt he truly partnered with us when designing the basement. Not only will you get a creative and beautiful new living space, but you will get an honest, hard working, and conscientious General Contractor who has quality people working with him."

Jen R.

"We are very, very happy with our new space!!! It is seriously as close to perfect as you can get. There are no complaints. We can't complain about you, your sub contractors, the quality of craftsmanship, the quality of materials, or the end result. Exceeded expectations. Feel free to use us as a reference for future clients."

"We could not be happier with our new finished basement. Howie was excellent to work with every step of the way, from the initial proposal through the execution of the project. His attention to detail is beyond compare. He understood our needs, our style, and our budget. We appreciated the prompt and responsive communications and the detailed financial/budget information he provided. The end result exceeded all of our expectations. We have already recommended him to our friends and we will turn to Howie for any future home improvement needs."

Jason M.

"I haven't heard too many people say, 'I really like our general contractor.' But in our case it's really true! You are fantastic at what you do and we are so looking forward to enjoying this space and making a lot of memories for our family. Thank you for all of your hard work and it was a pleasure to work with you."

Jen and Dan H.

"Howie provides excellent quality, architectural detail and exceptional customer service. I have had several homes built in 6 different states and Howie has surpassed all of the other builders in both quality of work and their level of customer service. I still enjoy my home and I would highly recommend him to others and if I move. I would use them again!"

Shirley T.

"From the land survey to final delivery of our home, Howie exceeded expectations. Building a custom home is very challenging and your builder needs to be more than a general contractor. Everyone has a story about their builder and so do I - Howie is 2nd to none. He was willing to work with our architect and identify potential problems before we signed a contract. He identified the best use of capital based on our financial restraints and our "must have" ideas. Follow-up on punch list was not left between me and the sub contractors - Howie stood by all promises and delivered. Even after two years, he still stands behind its product."

"A bar in a basement shouldn't look this good!"
