My partner and I have hired Joe Kostiak/Trade Craft Builders several times over the years, most recently for a complex addition to our home. Joe was our chief advisor & planner, and did the most essential elements himself, while coordinating with subcontractors for other parts. He met with us multiple times to consider options, review details, troubleshoot the unexpected (as every project will have!), and adapt to our own evolving vision. Joe commands a level of expertise, professionalism, and skill not commonly found, and at a very reasonable price. In an area with many contractors - many good, many mediocre, some bad -Joe stands head and shoulders above the rest. I can't imagine going to anyone else.

In 1999, my 90 year old Father and I, hired Joe Kostiak to completely renovate our beloved 100 year old house in Saranac Lake, which was in desperate need of work everywhere except for the roof. Joe and his team were especially considerate of our hopes and ideas, while giving much needed advice in every phase of this huge project. We were unable to be onsite, but were always in touch. The results were beautiful, keeping the character and feel of the house, as we imagine it looked when my grandfather, John Benham, built it in 1905, but now up to modern standards of comfort and liveability.
In 2014, I again called on Joe Kostiak to design and build an addition onto the old house, and once again, the result is amazing, exactly what I wanted, looking as though it has always been there, and solid as a rock. Joe and his team are absolutely professional, trustworthy, knowledgeable, considerate, hardworking, and neat. I can't say enough good about them, and definitely would not hire anyone else.

We worked with Joe Kostiak to build a house outside of Lake Placid, while we lived out of state. We have since relocated (July 2016). Everything stated on his Trade Craft Builders website is exactly our experience. This house is solid. There were no surprises during construction. Joe attends to detail, and his crew and subcontractors are excellent! He is trustworthy, and a craftsman. We made regular trips to Lake Placid during construction, and saw every phase of the process. You will be a full partner in the construction. Joe is well worth the time for a contact and meeting to discuss your plans.
