 Describe Your Experience with Cosmo's Contracting


" I am a victim of Super Storm Sandy. My home was severely damaged. I was fortunate enough to find help not only from volunteers, but I made what turned out to be one of the better decisions that I have made in my life by hiring the highly professional Nick Austine and his Cosmo's Contracting Company. Nick was not only knowledgeable, but he was sensitive to my needs. He reacted quickly to problems, including to ones that had nothing to do with the job. He knew exactly what, and how to do whatever was needed. He brought in professional plumbers and electricians, all of whom handled the situation with seamless ease, and promptness. I never felt abandoned, and his prices were all fair and reasonable. I recommend Cosmo's Contracting to anyone with a large or small job. Owner Nick Austine is responsive. If a need arises for Cosmo's Contracting to come to your home or office if there is a problem, count on a quick response from this caring owner and his team." ~Jerry G.

" Nick and his crew just completed our first floor bathroom that had to be gutted because of SuperStorm Sandy. What a fantastic job! Nick is dependable, honest and he does great work down to the very last detail. You can rest assured having Nick in charge of any home renovations. Looking forward to his next project at our place." ~Carol and Martin, Breezy Point, Queens

" Cosmo Contracting did a complete redesign/renovation of my bathroom. I was very impressed with this company from the moment the process began. I cannot stress how difficult it is to deal with contractors. (Being a new home owner I have dealt with many). Nick made the process very easy for me and explained every step from start to finish. He even went as far as showing me ways to save money with the renovation design. Needless to say I am very satisfied with my bathroom. All of my guests have commented on how “elegant and classy” the bathroom looks. Nick and his crew displayed fantastic craftsmanship and superb attention to detail. If you want quality work and quality customer service with an honest contractor Cosmo Contracting is your place to turn." ~ MT

"Nick and his workers did a fine job with our kitchen. Everyone was extremely conscientious and neat and cared about what they were doing. We love the way our kitchen looks and would not hesitate to recommend Cosmo's Home Improvement to our friends and family. In fact, we have already done so"

Dear Nick "Thank you so very much for all you have done for us. You transformed a home that was ravished by Hurricane Sandy into a very beautiful home again. The basement is nicer than it was before and you went the extra mile in making that area into a comfortable part of our home. Your workman were very respectful and experts in their fields and the finished product reflects that. When I needed help in making the many choices that needed to be made you were always there to help. We would recommend you to all. Our living room, dining room, kitchen, foyer and laundry room are proof of your fine work. Again thank you and your staff for all your help. " ~ Ruth & Ed Fertig of Belle Harbor, Queens

"My family lives in Broad Channel. We lost the first floor of our two family home. My husband interviewed five better business approved contractors and was really impressed with Nick.Nick and his crew gutted our floors and ceilings and found extensive damage to our support beams. He contacted two engineers to help guide us to make the right decision raising our house up six feet to everchanging Fema requirements. He gave us the time we needed to make the right decision. We finally decided to sell our two family home and Nick released us from our contract to have our first floor renovated. Any other contractor would have penalized us for breaking the contract. We Thank God for Nick. Sandy was devastating, Nick made everything easier. " ~ Sincerely, Louise Pavia and family

"We started out with two, 37 year old, poorly designed and pitifully maintained bathrooms that screamed for some serious gutting and renovations. Despite the difficult plumbing challenges and different materials for each, Nick turned them both into beautiful, luxurious bathrooms. Nick was prompt, professional, courteous, creative, and worked WITH us on getting the best design and value for our money. He did a great job, but, it was his honesty and integrity that sold us from the beginning. We would recommend him highly for that alone. In short, Nick is an honest, professional contractor (and he's a nice guy, too!)" ~ Paul & Alfred

"My husband and I hired Nick to renovate our entire Co-Op. Nick started the renovation, which among other things consisted of: redesigning the kitchen (widening the entryway, leveling the floor, and relocating the range, dishwasher, and sink) and bathroom, new hardwood floors, new plumbing and electrical work, and recessed lighting. Towards the end of the renovation, there was a fire in the unit upstairs and our apartment was COMPLETELY damaged by water. All the work was ruined and Nick had to start all over again. The whole ordeal was a traumatizing nightmare to say the least. But as overwhelming as our situation was, amongst all the chaos and new people we now had to work with, it was a relief to know that Nick would be the one fixing our home. Nick was absolutely amazing: he is honest, reliable, hardworking, always easy to get in contact with and easy to talk to. He gave us great suggestions and, even though we changed things on him a few times, worked with us through every little detail to make sure everything was as we had envisioned. His work is of great quality and reasonably priced. Our place is now beautiful and our guests are always impressed with the work. Now that everything is completed and we look back at what we went through, one of the things that we are grateful for is having chosen Nick as our contractor. We will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone." ~David and Mariel U.

"Nick of Cosmo's Home Improvement, was hired by my fiancé and I to remodel our two-family home in purchased in Howard Beach. We had just purchased this house and most of the interiors were from the 60s, so pretty much everything needed to be redone and half the house needed to be gutted. Our remodel included; both bathrooms, both kitchens and freshening up the rest of the house (3 bedrooms, 2 living room, 2 dining rooms, 2 entrance halls) with new (earth toned) paint and up-to-date moldings. He also did some brink pointing, installed all new windows (17 Total), and installed my new washer and dryer which required moving the existing plumbing. Both kitchens Nick installed are amazing! From the quality of the cabinets, to the well planned color combinations, to the little extras stuff, like hands free faucets, spin thing in the island, the lights through the glass paneled cabinets, and the lights under the cabinets. My favorite part of it is the granite kitchen countertops and the two islands in the middle of the kitchens and the glass tile positioning in the backsplash, not to mention, the special glass tile border designed by him separating the hall from the kitchen, and the awesome tiles on both the kitchen and hallway floors. Although he had to hurdle some obstacles with the extra long and thicker than normal tiles I chose for the bathrooms, he did a wonderful job on both bathrooms. The cracked mosaic glass borders definitely give the bathrooms character .... and we love the extra deep tubs. We found Cosmo's Home Improvement's work to be honestly priced, of good quality and done in a more than acceptable time frame. I would have no reservations in recommending him to any and all that are in need of his services." ~ We love Nick, and you will too!

"Nick not only showed up every day but was on time and had lots of patience adjusting to the schedule of the co-op board and the demands of the super. He really listened to my design ideas, although he had better suggestons because he knows what he is doing.

I am spreading the news to my friends that I found a good and dependable contractor." ~ Rita, Sunnydale, NY

"Nick and his crew were on time & professional. He gave us a start and finish date and was true to his word. He gutted and installed a new bathroom for us on the third floor of a 110 year old house.
