Murtha Construction and the team lead by Stephen Mckenna were Excellent. Very knowledgeable and involved on all phases of my dormer project. The staff were always very respectful of my home and family. They treated the place as if it were theirs and that alone says a lot about a company. I especially appreciated the fact that they were reachable at night and on the weekends for fast questions and/or unforeseen emergencies. At the end of my project the best compliment I received was from the neighbors mentioning how quickly the dormer was done and how seamless it blended with the existing home, as if it was always there. Murtha Construction did an excellent job and they are my contractor of choice for any future projects.
We just finished using Murtha construction for our new dormer. Murtha construction lived up to their motto of quick and clean but they should also add done correctly and honest and fair pricing. Steve McKenna the project manager came everyday told us what would be done that day and asked if we had any concerns. He would then return latter in the day to supervise his workers and make sure they left it clean. Thans you Steve because of you all went well. Matt and Sue. P. S. everything. You promised you delivered.

I had to choose a contractor to do work provided by a grant from the Long Island Hosuing Partnership. I have little experience with contracting, but have heard horror stories from my friends. I chose Murtha Construction (cold) because of their website. I have to say that they certainly live up to their website. They were wonderful to work with in every way! The work they have completed is beautiful! They are easy to contact and ready to solve any problem with the upmost professionalism. Thanks again!! Helped to make my house a beautiful home!

"Dear Murtha Construction,
Now that my efficiency improvements are complete and I just wanted to tell you what a pleasure it was working with Murtha Construction.
When Brian and the crew arrived Friday to do all the work we planned I never would have believed they could get everything done so fast. They worked together so efficiently, they were all so polite and courteous and they cleaned up everything. Due to the temperature being consistently below the average for this time of year, I was able to notice the difference the improvements made immediately.
Including Murtha Construction, there were three companies that looked at my home and made suggestions of how to improve my energy efficiency. I chose Murtha because the ideas you had were the best and you came up with alternatives to some of the work that needed to be done and you helped me to maximize the benefits of the Energy Star program that I was eligible for.
I am so happy I chose Murtha and I believe the payback period for the improvements you suggested will be even quicker than you calculated because they so desperately needed to be done."
Thanks for all your help and suggestions,
"Thank you for all the wonderful work that you and your team have done. Everything looks great and your team has really transformed my home. I can not thank you enough and I know that in the future when I need any projects done in my home, I will be sure to call your company and refer you whenever I can.
"Thank you so much for all the beautiful work done on our house! Our bathroom came out gorgeous!! Love it. All of you were absolutely wonderful you all did a great job!! We will highly recommend you and your staff to our fiends and family in the future. Thank you."

"I want to thank you for the great job you did on my house, without you, it would have not gotten done. Thank You again ever so much."
"I just had to write and let you know how pleased and impressed I was at the work that was done in my home."
"I would like to convey my sincere gratitude to Murtha Construction for a job well done. The crew was always working so hard and answered any questions I may have had at any time even when I would interrupt their concentration. We have all heard, too often, those terrifying home improvement contractor stories and the nightmares they create for the consumer, not the case though with this company it is quite the opposite, they turned my nightmare into a dream and for that I am grateful. I have received and continue to get many compliments from neighborhood people I have never met on how great my house looks, when strangers compliment you, you know you have something good!"
"How refreshing to make one phone call to Murtha Construction, about a leak in a porch that you installed several years ago, to be told we'll take care of it right away, and within a few days, one of your workmen arrives and does the repair. No fuss, no constant phone calls on my part and no frustration.
I take the time to write this letter, because I want you to know how much I appreciate the integrity with which you conduct your business. With complete confidence I recommend your company to my friends and personally would never use any other."
"Thank you for the wonderful job! We love our new space! Everyone was professional and courteous throughout the job."

"I would like to advise you of my satisfaction with the work that I have completed by Murtha Construction. I was very pleased with their representatives who worked at my house, but more importantly, I am extremely happy with the difference I am noticing with the temperatures in my home. The insulation that was installed seems to permit the house to hold the cooling of the air conditioner for much longer than in previous summers. I imagine the electric heating systems will also work more efficiently this coming winter."
"On July 10, Murtha Construction conducted a Comprehensive Home Assessment of my home. The assessment suggested I take some necessary energy saving steps to help me reduce my annual electric costs. I agreed to having this work performed and the work was completed about 10 days later, to my satisfaction. I was very impressed with the supervision of Stephen McKenna, who not only stopped by twice the day the assessment was being performed, but also, on the day the work was completed. Mr. McKenna stopped by at least twice to see if I was satisfied."
"I cannot say enough about the contractor that you sent to my home. Stephen McKenna from Murtha Construction, he was professional and knowledgeable. The testing he performed was a real eye opener. Mr. McKenna was honest and courteous, and he was unlike most contractors because he always showed up the date and time agreed upon."

"We would like to commend you and the contractors involved in the Energy Audit Program. What really pleased us was seeing three LIPA people who came by during the actual workday to check the work being done. Steve McKenna also inspected the work his crew was doing. The workmanship of Steve's crew was excellent and his men were very polite and hard working. We highly recommended this program and Murtha Construction to our neighbors.
We have already seen an improvement in our air conditioning due to the sealing of our ducts."

"We just had the Murtha Construction doing work in our house for LIPA's Energy Plan. We were very pleased with their workmanship. They were efficient, courteous and neat."
"We have participated in your Home Performance Direct Program recently and had the pleasure of using Murtha Construction in West Islip. Murtha Construction does very good work, and the boss Steve came by to check and see that the work was done properly."
"I recently had my free Home Performance Comprehensive Assessment completed by Murtha Construction. The men from Murtha did a great job while they were here. They were neat and completed all the areas that needed attention."

"I am writing this letter to express my support for the HpwES program you are offering Homeowners like myself. I requested and received an audit for the energy efficiency of my house. The audit was performed by Murtha Construction on 5/19/2009 and proved to be very informative.
The men who performed the work were very neat and courteous and performed the work in a professional manner. The rebate I received made this job affordable and I would never have been able to do it otherwise."
"I took advantage of the LIPA Energy Plan. I had Murtha do the evaluation of my house. Murtha was a very nice company to work and the work was efficient and clean. Thank you."
"I am so pleased with Murtha Construction. All of their employees were neat, respectful and competent, answering any of my questions. While they were working, they kept it confined to the area, cleaning as they progressed. When they left my home it had been vacuumed clean. I would definitely call Murtha if I had the need to do another project."
"Dear Mr. Murtha and Mr. McKenna,
The Leisure Village Women's Club appreciates the time and effort you both gave to speak to us at our meeting of July 18, 2009. You answered many questions our residents had regarding the LIPA survey and the work to be accomplished to achieve the savings we all wish for and need. Your professionalism on the job and with our residents face to face has won your company much admiration. The compliments we have heard regarding the completeness and cleanliness of your work and the responsiveness of your work force is unusual in this community as we have high standards for any upgrading we choose to consider."
