"We chose John Artinger & Son to do our 2 bedroom addition because he came highly recommended. We couldn't have been happier with his work. He was on time every day and never left before his work area was immaculate. All of my questions were answered and his suggestions were always helpful. His work ethic is above reproach. Not a day goes by that I don't appreciate the beautiful outcome of the work he did on my house. If you are looking for honesty, experience and talent then John Artinger is your man."
John & Dawn Bernabeo, Fair Lawn
- I contracted Artinger & Son Construction for several projects when I moved into my new house-- a wall torn down and turned into a half-wall, a storage bench/ window seat built, shoe moulding throughout the house and other minor carpentry fixes throughout the house.
John and Brian's attention to detail was flawless. John made several suggestions before (and during) construction about how we could make the half-wall and storage bench look better, while staying within my budget. I am so happy I went with his suggestions. The final product is beautiful, and better than I imagined.
I was so impressed with their professionalism and quality of work. Any carpentry work we have done in the future will be completed by Artinger & Son Construction because I can't imagine anyone else doing a better work at such a reasonable price.- Chase & Pia Jacobson, Midland Park
