Welcome to Costa Construction&Design

"Renovating a home or an apartment is stressful business and nothing is more stressful than choosing the right contractor". Or so we thought. From the first few phone conversations through the final punch list run-through, the J.Costa team went above and beyond our expectations. No detail was too small. For example they purchased and used--at their own expense--a pricier, healthier primer and paint since I was pregnant at the time.They helped with our appliance selection, sourced everything from Caesar Stone to glass shower doors, and did precise and beautiful tile work. They showed up every single day and completed the project in their estimated time frame, and they were an absolute pleasure to have in my home.
They were reachable, day and night, to answer any questions we had along the way, and they were patient with our endless waffling and research. We whole-heartedly recommend J. Costa Construction for any renovation project.
They are truly a pleasure to work with, outstanding at their jobs, detail-oriented, friendly, and prompt.
We will never need to hunt for another Contractor!"

"I have used J. Costa Construction for two renovation jobs in the past year andcould not be more pleased.
Only a few months after they had finished renovating one of the bathrooms in my house (and done a superbjob with it).I asked them to renovate my tenants' apartment. There they replaced the kitchen, added new floors, and redid thebathroom. Obviously I would not have asked them to do the second job if I were not totally satisfied with their work on the first.
That is the best testimonial I can make.I found working with J. Costa to be a very pleasant experience. They are wonderful craftsmen who are knowledgeable about all aspects of construction from thefine finish work to the heavy structural work. On both jobs they were extremely responsive to my questions and concerns. There was no detail too small for them to consider and no task beyond their capabilities.In addition to their craftsmanship,
I found J Costa to be extremely reliable, trustworthy, and pleasant..."

"There aren’t sufficient superlatives in the English language to express how happy I am with the renovation you did to my home….it is magnificent in every aspect.And working with you and yourcrew was a fabulous experience.  I appreciated their punctuality, the cleanliness of the job site, their courtesy and respect and their trustworthiness.  They are a great group of guys and I enjoyed working with each and every one of them.  But, of course, your crew is a reflection of you:  from the moment we met, I knew that I wanted you on my job. I appreciatedyour vision, your great ideas and most especially your enthusiasm and excitement about my project..."

"I have closely acquainted with JCosta Construction since since may 2005 when they began major renovation on my 2 bedroom 2 bath co-operative apartment in Manhattan. Their dedication to this project - as well as to meeting all the related deadlines - was outstanding, as well as the quality of work that the company's contactors performed".

"JCosta did numerous jobs for me and a few of my close friends. I found them to be extremely honest and forthcoming when it came to the bid and estimated time of completion. Their workmanship was excellent and immaculate. The experience was overall very smooth with little delays".

"I really appreciate the follow up and fortunately all of the work in the apartment is great and I really don’t have anyissues with anything that you did for us.  I’m glad to hearthat things are going well for you with the company and will be sure to pass along your name and website if I know anybody that needs any work done in their home. Thanks again for everything"

Mr. David Tchaikowitz

"We are very pleased with the bathroom and really enjoy it. You and your guys did an awesome job. One day, we’ll grow out of that apartment, and when we do another remodel, we’ll be in touch. In the meantime, please feel free to pass along my name as a reference. It would be my pleasure!”

Reviews From HOUZZ.COM

"From June to September of 2010 we worked with J. Costa to renovate a Manhattan apartment we'd just purchased: we replaced the entire apartment's hardwood floors, gut renovated the master bath, retiled two other bathrooms, and entirely ripped out and redid the kitchen. We were (and continue to be) enormously impressed with J. Costa Construction. Dean, Victor, and all the workers were infallibly polite, considerate, honest, and timely. The results were impeccable, and they worked beautifully with our building's condo board, super, real estate lawyer. They showed up every single day on time and were responsive to what we wanted and needed, often above and beyond our expectations (Seeing I was pregnant at the time, Dean--at greater cost to himself--insisted on using chemically safer paints and primers, and would always make sure to keep me safe on site). He's a father of six daughters (!!) and just a wonderfully hard-working, talented, kind soul of a person. Dean and his team made what could have been an incredibly stressful time for us so much easier and more pleasant. And we love the results! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend J. Costa for any project, big or small--and in fact I have....many times over. "


"J. Costa Construction was a pleasure to work with from the beginning to the end of the project. They did a gut renovation of our kitchen and one of our bathrooms and somehow still made it possible for us to live there. Everyone on the team was respectful to our home. They showed up every day on time and kept on schedule. I could sense from beginning to end that they cared about the quality of the work they doing for us. We are very happy with the end result and would highly recommend them to others. "


"J. Costa Construction did a fantastic job on our full gut renovation. We couldn't be more thrilled with the way our apartment turned out, down to the last detail. Dean (the contractor) was professional, trustworthy, and best of all responsive. I would highly recommend J. Costa Construction for any type of renovation.

The team was quick with the demolition, did excellent detail work on the roughing (electrical and plumbing), quickly closed up the walls and then turned to the finish work. Our bathroom tiles and fixtures were laid beautifully and the doors / painting was spot on.

I very much look forward to our next project with them."


"J. Costa Construction did a gut renovation on my very outdated kitchen. Before they began the job, they made sure to protect the furniture in the rest of my apartment from dust and debris by putting up a "plastic wall." Therefore enclosing the workspace. They knocked walls down, put walls up and expanded a doorway. They removed the old floors, cabinets, countertops, appliances and backsplash and installed all of the new ones. I purchased all of the new materials from a major home and appliance store and had it delivered by the time J. Costa was ready to go. I kid you not when I tell you the whole process took only two weeks from beginning to end and my kitchen looks fantastic!! I would highly recommend the J. Costa Construction company."


"I did a complete bathroom renovation in NYC with Dean. I showed him a picture of what I wanted and he actually sat down with me and went step-by-step through all the options (i.e. styles, pricing, vendors) that I had for fixtures and materials on his iPad. Because I had never done a renovation of any kind before and was completely overwhelmed by all of the choices that I had, Dean took the time to work with me and make me feel comfortable with both the process and the choices I was making. If that's not going "above and beyond," I don't know what is.

Dean, himself, is extremely personable and easy to get along with. He is responsive when issues arise and figures out how to get them fixed ASAP.

His crew was efficient, thorough, friendly and did a great job containing the project and dust to just the bathroom area. I had such a good experience working with everyone, that when I had to get a new dishwasher put in just one month after the bathroom reno, I called Dean who took care of it while I was away in FL over Christmas and New Years. That's how much I trust him and the work he does!

I get Christmas cookies and a warm holiday note each year from him as a thank you for the business as well. I just can't say enough positive things about Dean and his crew. You will not be disappointed!"


"I can't give enough accolades to Dean Savioli (owner) and his crew. They did a tremendous job and I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great contractor.

The crew is clean, polite, courteous and highly proficient. The work they did was meticulous. They showed up every day on time and finished the job on schedule.

Dean is very knowledgeable and creative. He is a very smart man and so easy to deal with. He is not just a contractor: he could easily be a designer. He had great ideas and recommendations - including many that saved me a lot of money. And he has a terrific personality: he is easy-going and a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Moreover, he knows his stuff.

I don't have enough superlatives for this company. Hire them! You will be so happy you did."
