"...We knew how important it would be to pick the right builders, and when we first met Al, we knew you were the builders we wanted. My family and I can't thank you enough for building us such a beautiful home, on time and on budget. I have to say, one of the most enjoyable parts of the process was working with all of you guys as a team. All the employees were very friendly and good at what they do and everyone kept the job site so neat and clean. We also appreciate how the subcontractors were. Everyone was so helpful and did such a great job giving us just what we wanted, the way we wanted it. We thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts and we love our new home."

"We want to let you know how pleased we are with our new kitchen, additional bedroom, and full bath. You gave us exactly what we asked for.
Our experience during the building process was quite pleasant, regardless of the fact that we did not have a kitchen. The work crews were very professional, courteous, considerate, and always willing to assist and answer our questions. A special thank you to Mitch for being an extremely thorough project manager. His attention to detail is an asset to your company.
I was very impressed that you came up with your own punch list that was even more thorough than ours! You get an "A" for Customer Satisfaction. Thanks to Ideal and Crew for making the experience worthwhile."


"What can we say? We love it! It is the house of our dreams and from the beginning you guys made it seem so easy. Everything from beginning to end was completed with quality workmanship and professionalism. Again, we thank you and all the guys who made our beautiful home possible!"


"We are so thrilled with our newly renovated home. The first day we met Al, we had only a vague idea of what we wanted- more light, room to move aroundd, and a new music studio. Al was able to take this concept and design the home of our dreams! We put all of our faith in IDEAL. We were never disappointed. The plans were great. Mitch Migdat, our project manager, was a godsend. He kept everything on track, including us! All of the workers for IDEAL were friendly, caring, and professional. The subcontractors were all top-notch. We felt like we were using these subcontractors because they were the best and were proud to e a part of the IDEAL team. Everyone who comes into our home remarks on the wonderful flow and warmth generated by the design. We always give the credit to IDEAL. We never hesitate to recommend you! If anyone wants to know, dreams really can come true...just call IDEAL!"


"Your professionalism throughout was unparalleled. From the moment we first met with Al, we were put at ease by Ideal's honesty and efficiency. Your work crew was always extremely courteous and respectful of our home and the fact that we were still living there during the project. Friends and family have all commented on how wonderful the house looks. They are shocked that our contractors return calls (theirs don't), finish projects to their completion (theirs don't), and clean up after themselves (theirs certainly don't do that!) We are thankful for your professionalism and your workmanship."


"Eighteen years ago, we decided to enlarge our kitchen. We were referred to some young men who were starting Ideal Construction. Your ideas led to a beautiful kitchen-family room addition. We were very pleased with the outcome. When we decided to add a mother-daughter wing, we again called upon Ideal Construction. The crew was professional at all times. During that time span, Ideal has grown. The company today is quite different from the first addition; however the personal attention is still there. this was a major renovation and living through it was difficult, but well worth it. We trusted you eighteen years ago, and you proved that you are even more trustworthy. Our home has become our "mother-daughter" home and we have Ideal and family to thank for it."


"We wanted to thank you for building us such a wonderful home. We were part of the process from the very beginning- working with your vendors to choose everything- from the layout of the kitchen, to the individual fixtures and lighting, guided by their expertise and suggestions. Your attention to detail is one of your company's best qualities. You never seemed to be satisfied with just "ok"- everything you worked on had to be perfect. The craftsmanship of the woodworking is something that still draws compliments from guests. You and your workers were approachable, friendly, professional and neat.You were genuine and sincerely interested in our happiness and satisfaction with the quality of the work. It was a true pleasure dealing with IDEAL, and we have recommended you and praised you to all our friends and neighbors. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication."


"... We are extremely happy with how the entire project turned out and I am quite sure we wouldnít be quite as happy with the end result had we not used Ideal Construction because all along the way you were not only concerned with getting our project done in a timely manner, but also about using your expertise to improve upon our original plans.
I truly appreciate the time you took to make recommendations and help us make decisions on both the design and the materials used. I know I was quite picky about a lot of things like door knobs, hinges, windows etc. and really appreciate your patience and suggestions which really helped us accomplish the look we were aiming for.
I was also amazed at how, although we were remodeling our kitchen and downstairs bath with two young children, both the disruptions to our life and the mess were kept to a minimum. I would certainly encourage anyone who is planning to do a home improvement project to use Ideal Construction and know that you would be first on our list should we have a need again in the future.
Thanks again, we are really enjoying all our new space and particularly love our new kitchen!!"


"... It was a pleasure working with Ideal. Mitch paid such close attention to detail. I loved that. Email communication worked great for me. All contractors were very nice and were very responsible and courteous with our neighbors. We enjoyed the planning stage of our home building experience. Mitch was extremely helpful and courteous, a pleasure to work with and very knowledgable. They were professional, time conscientious and in the end created a great product. I would highly recommend Ideal to anyone, in fact I already have!"


" Sandy and I would like to thank everybody for all their efforts in renovating our home. We absolutely love it!
From the time we started the process, it has been a sheer pleasure to work with all of the members of the Ideal CDR team- without exception. EVERYBODY was always very pleasant and professional. It is apparent that each and every member of your team takes pride in what they do- and the finished house certainly reflects that pride.
Everybody seems to enjoy telling horror stories about contractors. In the past, we told our share, as well. However, our experience with Ideal CDR has been totally positive. Of cours, with a project of this size, occasional problems are inevitable. However, they were always resolved quickly, efficiently, and professionally. Throughout the entire process, we were kept informed, and were deftly guided. At all times, you presented suggestions, our input was solicited, and we never felt pressured into making decisions we were uncomfortable with. It was always a cooperative effort between us, which we greatly appreciated. As the project moved forward, we learned to trust you, because we felt that you had our best interests at heart.
It is said that only the unhappy customers tell other people about their experiences- that the happy people remain silent. That's not the case here- nor will it be. We are very pleased to tell anyone and everyone how happy we were with Ideal CDR (beaming with pride, of course). As our house was completed, it became common for complete strangers to stop and tell us how much they admired our beautiful house. With total delight, we gladly told them who did it: IDEAL CDR!
....... and we'll keep telling them.


" Lorie and I are so happy with our new Kitchen Addition and the new look of our dining area. It's been a long process but it's all worth it. This renovation was a big commitment on our end, but you guys made it easier for us. The professionalism as well as the courtesy of everyone from IDEAL gave us the feeling that we are getting the best quality service for our home.
We are so glad that we picked you for this job. With so many scary stories about contractors not showing up and about renovation jobs done poorly, it was clear to us that we had to pick carefully. Seeing how you guys do your work as well as how you deal with the customers, keeping us informed of what's happening and making sure we're clear on each stage of the job cycle, we feel that we've made the right choice.
Our friends as well as other people who've seen our new kitchen and dining room have nothing but compliments and praises. When they ask us who our contractor was, we eagerly tell them about IDEAL CDR and what a good experience we had during the whole process, except for the part of not having a kitchen for more than a month. We've even told our friends who are planning to do some renovations of their own to contact IDEAL CDR.
Thanks again for giving us our new kitchen and giving us the extra space that we needed."


"Our new kitchen has changed our lives. We are very pleased with how it turned out. We now have a modern kitchen in a 1926 Colonial, which makes our home so much more enjoyable.
Your design was creative, your workmanship was stellar and you met every deadline exactly as you sketched it out before the work started. Thank you for everything, including your prompt customer service and answering our every question along the way. We never felt like another customer was more important than us during the two-month renovation.
When the work started, we were out of the country. We were very comfortable with having you company's people in our home while we were away. When we returned to the stripped down room and the new electrical work, plumbing, and insulation, we were so excited. It was a joy to watch the rest of the project to its completion. Your carpenters were also helpful whenever we had a question, and their skill was evident.
We appreciate your attention to detail and the little things that gave us even more confidence in your work, like putting in the extra support beam in the basement; replacing the plumbing upstairs; and the new duct work that has helped our ventilation throughout the house.
We feel confident that others will appreciate your work and ultimately learn firsthand your integrity as a contractor. We wouldn't have used anyone else."

" It was a pleasure working with you on our recent kitchen addition and basement remodel. From start to finish, you were extremely professional, courteous and responsive. We would highly recommend you to anybody looking for general contracting and building services.
We have shown a lot of people the work you did and they were all very impressed with the quality. Most importantly, the added and remodeled space allowed us to achieve our goal of having a space which was available and accessible for my disabled father and my mother. We were able to celebrate my father's 73rd birthday in the remodeled basement entertaining space, as he was able to easily maneuver with is wheelchair. We couldnt have done it without your help in completing the space with handicap features on a timely basis.
We hope to do at least one more major construction project on our house and we will be giving you a call! Thanks again for everything!

" I just wanted to say thank you for the work you and your team performed for our basement renovation. Our experience with IDEAL CDR has been great, from the initial meeting through job completion. Your professionalism, honesty, integrity and workmanship are excellent. This was our first major renovation project and we really needed a partner that could guide us properly through the process to ensure that we had the end result that we wanted. The subcontractors that were working in our home were also very good, from the framing team (who worked diligently), to the HVAC team (who gave us the extra height that was important in our basement), to Stone King who did a great job with our bar countertop, to your tile team who did an amazing job with our bathroom and bar backsplash, and to the plumber, electrician and the rest of your team.

We also appreciate the leadership each of you provided during various stages of our project; from the initial space design, to cabinet design, selection and installation, bar & countertop design and installation, and support when we thought we had an issue with our hardwood floors. The end result has exceeded our expectations.
Thank you very much and we look forward to being able to work with you again."


"We want to write just a few words to express our deep appreciation and express how we feel with our addition and new kitchen. From Al's first visit at our home we knew that we wanted to do this job with IDEAL. Al seemed very honest and quite professional. He expressed his expertise in many ways. Al was very patient with us until we made the decision with the final design. We appreciate all his time, effort and evening visits to our home until we were very confident of the plan.
The entire crew was very professional and courteous. They worked right on schedule. Everyone was very pleasant and especially nice to our dog, Butch. We were amazed at the patience and tolerance with the dog, especially in the first few days when Butch was getting used to all the noise.
We are very happy with our new kitchen and love all our new space. We thank the entire crew at IDEAL Construction for a superb job. Thank you all so much for a job well done!"
