Turtle Contracting Corp is a Long Island general contractor licensed and insured to serve Nassau County and Suffolk County, Long Island and the New York City boroughs of Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Founded by Lou Amling, a veteran of the construction business for more than twenty-five years, the company is a custom builder specializing in home improvement, renovation and remodeling. Our success is the result of our knowledge of construction, years of remodeling experience and the solid reputation we continue to build one client at a time.
Turtle Contracting Corp has a relatively large customer base for a locally-focused Long Island general contractor. Our family of clients is built with the bricks and mortar of integrity and satisfaction. The foundation of our business model is homeowner referrals. Our clients are happy to provide recommendations, be it written, verbal or visual. The truth is that virtually every Turtle Contracting client has been referred to us by another client: we are not big on self-promotion. We have remodeled homes for three generations in a single family. Relationships include co-workers, friends, neighbors, on and on the list goes. The proud owners of Turtle Touched™ homes love to share their experiences and we hope you read a few of the testimonials we have received.
The Turtle Contracting Corp slogan is, We Know Shells. The shell is where many projects start. It is the exterior of the building, including foundation, walls, roof, windows, plumbing and electrical. When you hear someone say that a house has "good bones," they are talking about the shell. Sometimes when a client wants us to build an addition, extension, second story or dormer addition, they want to finish the interiors themselves. That can be a lot of work, even for the hardiest do-it-yourself-er. Most homeowners want us to do everything, but when you work with us, we give you all of the options.
Home remodeling is a smart investment, especially in the case of a bathroom remodel or a kitchen remodel. It is impossible to calculate the value of coming home every night to living space that has been custom designed and custom built to meet your family's needs with your idea of style. When it comes time to sell, the real estate experts tell us that a home with an up-to-date bathroom and kitchen design will fetch a higher price and stay on the market for a shorter period of time. Curb appeal, the first impression your remodeled home makes, is money in the bank.
Turtle Contracting Corp renovates and remodels single family homes throughout Long Island and the suburban boroughs of New York City. If you live in a condominium, apartment or co-op, we can help you too. Condo remodeling is both easier and harder than home remodeling. Easier because there is no exterior work to do. Harder because you must work within the interior space available. Our experience with custom built-ins can help you take advantage of every square foot. We know how to remodel City residences and it is particularly important to select a reliable general contractor for work in Manhattan.
If you make your home on Long Island or in any of the five boroughs of NYC, please contact us to discuss your home remodeling project. Whether you need a bathroom remodeler, kitchen remodeler, dormer builder, replacement window expert or second story construction professional in any of the areas we serve, call Turtle Contracting Corp. We Know Shells. Our telephone number is (516) 499-3141.
