Lower East Side Construction

Renovations for Modern Living since 1996

  Locally established Lower Eastside resident Joe Foti has been providing quality apartment renovations to his neighbors for the past 20 years. Joe along with his partner, Valerica Deaconu, have become the leaders in apartment renovations on the lower east side, especially the East River, Seward Park, and Hillman apartment complexes.

  As a young boy Joe washed windows and shoveled cars out of the snow for his neighbors. He began doing small painting and handyman projects with his older brother Robert Joseph Foti and their longtime friend Vali. Slowly they began to acquire more jobs, employees, and skills and before long the projects grew in scale, and they became licensed contractors.

  Since our humble beginnings we have acquired an excellent reputation and have been committed to providing quality contemporary renovations at an affordable price.  Lower Eastside Construction, Inc has transformed numerous apartments into elegant upscale living suites. Our work speaks for itself. We invite you to take a look at the gallery sections of this website to see for yourself the creative, innovative and high quality workmanship that is a direct result of our commitment to quality and value.

Initial Contact Meeting

  At our first meeting we take a walk through of the space and listen to the needs of our customers. We will then discuss design possibilities and provide ideas that will help the client realize their vision.

Estimate is Produced

  An estimate is provided with an itemized list of actions to be taken and the cost of each process. We will meet again with our clients to review options and discuss material choices.

Estimate Acceptance and Contract Signing 

  Upon approval of estimate by the client, a contract is created and signed. At this point the process of filing insurance and licensing permits begins.

Measuring and Recommendations 

  The next step involves measuring and discussions regarding the coordination of timing, materials, and product selections. We can also provide a list of recommended vendors.

The Transformation Begins!
