Hi Mike,

Hi Mike, thought I would send you a note to say that I love our renovations. I’m sitting in the new room downstairs enjoying a book and the space . Thank you for working with integrity and a true master craftsman attitude. We still have to finish some things but it has been a great experience working with you and Joe and Jared. Have a great weekend.

                                                                                                                                      Monika & Robert B.

We selected Califano and Son Construction for a larger home renovation project which included a new roof, kitchen, bathroom, and family room. Since our renovation was larger in scope we interviewed multiple contractors and checked all references. We decided to go with Califano and Son Construction and it was a decision that proved to the right one. Our roofing situation was quite severe as not only did the roof require a complete tear-off but the issues were structural as well. Mike and his team demonstrated exceptional craftsmanship in providing us a roof that not only looks great but is structurally sound as well. Our kitchen, bathroom, and den we are all extremely pleased with and the finished product was exceptional. Mike is a meticulous contractor not only from the placement of every nail but in how immaculate he keeps the job site. From a budgetary perspective Mike held true to the estimate and if a change order was required it was clearly communicated, documented, and explained. My wife and I highly recommend Califano and Son Construction as he demonstrated exceptional craftsmanship and professionalism in his trade.

I can’t say enough about how much we love our new home!  We knew from the start that choosing Califano & Son to do our addition was going to be the right decision.  Mike and his teams were professional, attentive and the quality of work was outstanding.  The teams were also always on time, efficient, did impeccable cleanup and stayed on budget!

                                                                                                                                     Many thanks for a beautiful job!

Califano & Son has been my go-to contractor for the last 15 years. Michael and his team of professionals have renovated a home office for my husband, our laundry room (twice – one in our first house and in our current home) and countless other minor renovations.

Their carpentry is reflective of real craftsmanship. I am always pleased with their suggestions for alternate ideas. Michael’s estimates are honest and fiercely competitive. I know when he gives me a number, he will come back with a great end product, on time, and close to that number as he can get.

His guys are always very nice. They clean after themselves daily and are always respectful of our home and family members.

As a realtor, I readily recommend Califano & Son to my clients.

                                                                                                                                              -Mary D.

Dear Mike,

Thank you so much for the beautiful office that you designed and built for my newest location in Downtown Cranford. It turned out even better than I could have ever imagined. Your work is impeccable and your work ethic is truly admirable. It was a pleasure working with you and your crew, and I would happily hire you again for my next project!

                                                                                                                                              Best Regards,

                                                                                                                                              Lisa Jiannetto-Surrusco

                                                                                                                                              Pediatric Therapy

My wife and I planned to do some work on our home and contacted several contractors. When the plans were ready we tried to reach them but they failed to return our calls or answer our emails. Bad start.

That’s when we heard of M. Califano & Son. We set up a meeting and Mike showed up on time. He gave us a date that the estimate would be ready and again, on time. The contract was concise and without ambiguity. Payment schedule was clear as to what was to be completed before payments were due. Mike gave us a date he would begin work and held to it.

During the five month project there was never a day that Mike or one of his crew weren’t there working or directing the subs. Mike would personally walk the subs through before they began and told them exactly what to do and how he wanted it done. Careful attention was given to protect existing floors and surfaces. Every day finished with tools and materials being put away and everything cleaned up. Mike is a perfectionist and if something was not completed to his expectations it was redone.

We enjoyed working with Mike and his crew and are extremely happy with the finished product. We would highly recommend M. Califano & Son to family and friends or anyone looking for a top-notch contractor.

What can I say about M. Califano and Son Construction? Mike has done 3 big projects for me over the years. He just finished the most recent project. He repaired and refinished my hardwood floors, put up crown molding and painted the entire inside of my home. In the past he has extended and remodeled my kitchen and put on a 700sq foot addition complete with a second kitchen and bathroom. As you can see he is the only contractor I trust. Here’s why.

     -Extremely professional
     -Well maintained job site. Safe and very clean.
     -Great staff who listen to your concerns and are very personable.
     -Most important of all is the quality of his work. The work is done as if he is working on his own home. No short cuts and done right.

There are cheaper contractor I’m sure, but remember you get what you pay for.

                                                                                                                                              -Michael W.

We could not have been happier with the work that Mike Califano and Son performed on our home. We retained the company to do an addition to our home including a mudroom and half bath room. From planning to implementation to followup, the work was completed in a professional manner. The quality of the work met the highest of standards. Particularly noteworthy is the quality of the staff…very capable and caring. Anyone who’s done a construction job knows how challenging it can be. Mike,his staff and his contractors made the experience as painless as possible. My husband and I highly recommend Mike Califano and Son.

                                                                                                                                              -Allison D.

We have just completed a main bath and front room renovation with M. Califano & Son at our home on Gallows Hill Road, Cranford. Our job was smaller in scale, but the M. Califano & Son team never treated us this way. Mike, his employees, the plumber and electrician team aligned, were professional and insightful every step of the way.

The communication we had was exemplary. If I wasn’t brought up to speed by Mike himself, his lead contractor Jared would share progress and what to expect the days ahead. As a work at home employee, this was especially helpful because I was able to plan my day accordingly.

In addition to top notch communication, they were respectful of our home. They laid cloth and plastic covering down and cleaned (vacuumed and/or wiped down) at the end of each day. This was a huge help and reinforced to us M. Califano & Sons was a top notch organization.

If I can convince my husband to expand our master bedroom (fingers crossed!) we will have M. Califano & Son Construction back to do the work, no doubt.

We are 100% satisfied with their work.

I would be happy to provide additional references via phone, if need be.
