I am so happy I bought my elevator from Custom Renovators of New York. Neil and Mike made sure every detail was perfect. They worked so hard to make sure my elevator operated flawlessly. I have nothing but the highest praise for their professionalism; making sure I was completely satisfied. I highly recommend Custom Renovators to anyone shopping for a home elevator. There is no one better!

We had Neil and his crew install a three stop PVE 52 elevator in my father's house in Smithtown, NY. These guys are absolute pros! They were reasonably priced and included EVERYTHING that was needed, it was a true turnkey experience. They left the house in mint condition every day during the installation, they're all extremely polite to deal with, meticulous work, and they're attention to detail was incredible. My father loves the lift and it runs like a champ. I highly recommend choosing Neil and his team. I can't say enough nice things about these guys!

My wife and I have been homeowners for over 40 years and after recently hiring Neil Cornfield for our latest project he proved to be not only the consummate gentleman but capable, expert, attentive and handled every aspect of this work with a aplomb. He even finished within the timeframe as suggested and he was always hands-on. We cannot give him higher accolades & strongly recommend him and his crew.

I wouldn’t have anyone else do any type of work to my house..Neil is not only extremely professional but he has an amazing design eye and creative ability. The work he has done on parts of my house that I thought were impossible totally transformed it. From transforming bathrooms to turning an attic into a perfect extra living space were perfect. He never says it can’t be done and will take the time to do whatever his client asks for ..

I highly recommend Neil of custom renovators. He has done three projects in my home over the last 5 years (build in bookcases, a staircase, closet, fireplace mantle, hearth and surround and most recently an entire addition which including gutting a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and creating a brand new open concept space). This was a complex project due to the nature of my almost 100 year old home. He handled it with expertise, passion and care. He completed the job on time and on budget and exceeded all of our expectations. We are beyond pleased with the final result. I would recommend Neil for any project in your home with confidence.

Neil is the most talented craftsman and general contractor we've ever worked with. He's extremely creative, has amazing vision and has an outstanding design sensibility. Among other things, Neil helped re-design our living room by building a new fireplace mantle, installing lighting and re-painting the room and did an outstanding job (see pic). He's calm, has a vision and is so easy and nice to work with. He stays on timeline, is a great communicator and is easy to reach. He's earned a wonderful reputation around town and we recommend him to our friends often. We look forward to working with him again on our next project!

Neil Cornfield is an excellent contractor and craftsman with a unique sense of design. That design talent is one most contractors can't match. Neil values beauty, functionality, and attention to detail. 25 years ago Neil designed a wall unit for my home that required working around an existing window and air conditioner. He met the challenge providing an aesthetically pleasing and functional unit. Most recently, he reconstructed my kitchen for an open concept, opening walls, providing all aspects of plumbing, electrical, flooring, appliances, counter-tops, and he hand crafted pieces where necessary. Neil is trustworthy, fair and does superior work.

Neil at Custom Renovators was great to work with! He designed and built our basement which included the playroom, state-of-the-art laundry room, cedar closet and storage room. The work was done in a timely manner and he managed the entire project with all the vendors needed to complete the job. Not only great to work with, hes a super nice guy! And if your lucky-you get to meet his pup Buddy! We love Neil!

As our parents were getting

As our parents were getting older and less able to climb stairs we turned to Neil who offered us a solution that was economical compared to building a new extension downstairs for them. The elevator was easy, attractive and a blessing. Neil couldn’t be more professional, honest,and meticulous in his work and would recommend him and his product to anyone. Even when I thought everything look perfect he felt he could make it look better. He takes pride in his work a rare find these days.
