"It is a pleasure to recommend Frank DeBono and do so without reservation. His name was offered to us with the highest of praise from our Interior Designer, Deborah Leamann who had worked with him on previous projects. We took on a very extensive restoration of a 1920s maisonette on the east river and wanted to maintain a sense of the grand history of the place while at the same time giving it modern sensibilities. Frank DeBono was indeed the perfect builder for the job. We quickly developed a close and genuinely enjoyable collaboration. Frank exceeded our expectations in every way. His team employs the skills and techniques of the old world masters where every detail turns into a work of art. Once Frank seals his commitment to you with a handshake, he never stops giving 100%. He is a force to be reckoned with, attending to every detail and never accepting anything from his team but the very best. Through our work together, Frank and his brother Mario became friends, we enjoyed their company and their energy so much, while we were thrilled with our completed project, we were sorry to say goodbye to them. Hardly a day goes by when we don't stop and marvel at some lovely detail or other in our home, or just step back and take it all in again, singing the praises of Frank DeBono. If you are reading this and considering which builder to hire, look no further, you have found a true gem!"
-Beth Grosshans and Dennis Stattman, New York City

"It is truly our pleasure to recommend Frank DeBono. Frank and his team of experts did a full home renovation for our family. The quality of their work exceeded our expectations in all aspects. He is extremely detail oriented, dedicated, honest and highly professional. Frank is not just a builder, he is truly an artist. Many of the pieces in our home were hand crafted by him and are truly magnificent.

From the minute he walked into our home he has listened to what we wanted and created a dream home for our family. He coordinated and executed the entire project, not just including his team, but interior designers, IT professionals and building management. Our home came out better than we could have ever thought possible. While deciding to hire a contractor was an important decision, we haven't regretted our decision for a single minute and look forward to working with him in the future. Frank is a man with the highest level of integrity and has gone above and beyond his responsibilities relating to our home. We would not hesitate to recommend Frank's services to anyone who wants and values superior quality."

I could rely on his good judgement and effective management to see it through successfully on time and on budget.

"Frank DeBono Construction is A++. I hold Frank in highest regard for his exquisite skill, his integrity and his unparalleled ability to forge a solid collaboration with the architect and designer. Frank achieves perfection on time and on budget. Frank was also masterful in solving technical issues both before and after demolition. Most of all, Frank cares about his work, and that caring shines through clearly in the quality of the result. I can honestly say I enjoyed the renovation process so much that I am going to miss it! I recommend Frank DeBono Construction with highest conviction and without reservation."

"If you want to work with someone honest and hardworking you want to work with Frank. His work is amazing and unique. I've never met someone so professional as well as kind before."
-Charlie Koenitzer, Southampton

"I had the pleasure of being introduced to Frank DeBono on a renovation project located in Manhattan in 2008. As an interior designer it was an amazing experience. The beauty that was brought forth, the level of expertise, service & ability to execute the most intricate of designs left me impressed beyond words. No details were overlooked. That is why in 2013 my client came to me with an extensive renovation project and asked, "How should we proceed"? I knew immediately Frank DeBono, his brother Mario and the team of Frank DeBono Construction was the right answer. Again, the experience was of the highest level. The final outcome is a work of art. From the restoration of the hardware to the plaster work, custom cabinetry, paneling, installation and management of all tradespeople and staff was a joy to experience. If you want perfection Frank DeBono Construction is the firm for you. Can't wait for the next project!"
-Deborah Leamann, Pennington, NJ

"Frank DeBono is a 'Builder', in the best sense of the word. Self trained as a cabinetmaker in his native Malta ( I saw the sturdy and beautiful kitchen cabinets he made at age 14 his mother still has in her house), he has been honing his craft over the past thirty years, with his brother Mario, so that he must now be considered along with only a handful of other New York City builders as a 'go to' guy if you want the best. His work has a soul to it rarely found today. Perhaps it is because he is so passionate (a word greatly overused today, but absolutely appropriate here) about pleasing his customers, or perhaps it's because he retains so much of the work 'in-house' with his loyal crew, most of who have been with him ten years or more. He is always at the top of our list."
-John Ike [formerly Ike Kligerman Barkley], currently Ike Baker Velten, New York, NY

"Frank DeBono is a perfectionist. Always looking for ways to deliver beyond expectations. Frank is an honest and wonderful person to work with."
-Flavia and Alejandro Przygoda, New York, NY

"I met Frank Debono, approximately 14 years ago, as he was one of the several contractors we interviewed to do our apartment on Central Park West. We subsequently hired him and have never regretted that decision. To say I totally enjoyed the 18 months we worked together would be an understatement. We became friends over that period of time, and to this day Frank still does work for me. He is a craftsman in the highest sense of the word. The quality of his workmanship still amazes me when I walk into my apartment at night, and after all these years, the wonderful thing about dealing with Frank is that if you call him with a problem that needs to be fixed, he will ask you if "tomorrow morning at 9 am would be soon enough." I would recommend Frank without hesitation to anyone that needs any type of construction, and would be happy to personally speak with anyone who wants a reference."
-E.E. Geduld, New York, NY

"Craftsmanship of the highest order. Frank DeBono is by far one of the best in the industry. Highly recommended!"
