“I had the pleasure of contracting and working with Above & Beyond LLC in 2009 to complete carpentry work and install a ceramic tile floor. The work was major and completed in a professional and timely manner. From the first visit for the estimate through the end-of-the project, Above & Beyond LLC was punctual, reliable and completed work that significantly exceeded my expectations within the quoted amount. I receive many compliments on the result of their efforts. My thanks to them and I will definitely work with them and refer them to potential clients’ in-the-future.”
“I can’t stop smiling. The work you guys did is truly amazing. You turned my house that I could barely stand living in anymore into a beautiful work of art! My hardwood and tile floors, the paint, the trim…THE SERVICE! Thank you so much!”
“We contracted Above & Beyond Home Improvements to refinish our hardwood floors. Our experience with David and company was nothing short of amazing! From start to finish David explained each of the different stages in refinishing hardwood floors. He went to great lengths to create different finish samples for us to consider before starting the job which helped in our overall process in choosing the right finish for us. Not only did we get exactly what we were looking for with top notch quality work, we received expert service which we truly believe is as says in the company name; ‘Above & Beyond!’”

“David did a terrific job of sanding and refinishing our TV room floor a year ago. He was meticulous in his work and the floor still looks lovely. He is also very professional, polite, and friendly. He also painted the ceiling and repolished the wood on the walls of our breezeway and did an outstanding job! It still looks shiny and new! Thanks David!”
“My experience with David Ostrowski of Above & Beyond was very positive. David came to our home to give us a price to install a new hardwood floor in our family room. David came very well prepared. He came with many different samples and even more great ideas and suggestions. He made choosing the correct wood and pattern around our raised hearth very easy. David’s workmanship and work ethics are very professional. I would not hesitate to bring David back into our home for our next wood floor project. We are very satisfied.”

“I used Above & Beyond Home Improvements to basically redo my entire house. I bought an old Cape that I saw potential in, but this company made it a reality, far past my expectations. The house was completely repainted, from the ceilings to the floor boards. What really stands out is the exceptional installation of trim that makes the rest of the paint stand out. David was replaced all the baseboards. Every attention to detail really stands out and makes the house beautiful. This company's attention to detail and meticulous work is better than anything I have seen. I have recommended this company all my friend and neighbors. My sister is even trying to have them drive down to Pennsylvania to install wood floors in her house. Great stuff!”
“I had Above & Beyond redo all the old wood floors in an old house that I recently purchased. David listened very patiently to what I was thinking about doing for the place, and shared his opinion and expertise to make this happen. I also had wood floors installed in a bedroom and in my kitchen which had old linoleum from 1950. He made it all flow together and seamless. I cannot even tell where the old floor was. My whole house has new and restored hardwood floors and I love showing it off to all my guests. I also have three kids and tons of activity on these floors and they have held up great. To make it even better, David refaced my chimney with new mosaic tile and I love showing off my new living room.”
“I was quite impressed with the work you have done for Jennifer already and would like to keep you working in the interim.”

“We just wanted to thank you for doing such a nice job on the floor refinishing and painting. As you know, we have had our house on the market for 2 years with no luck. A couple of days after you finished someone came out and left a deposit. They said they had never seen such a clean house and were amazed at the super nice wood floors.”

“You were just super. You did everything you said you would and on time. You actually are a perfectionist! You took care of all the transitions going into other rooms. That was one of the reasons we hired you, because you impressed me with the details. We thank you and will recommend you to other people!”

“I want you to know how pleased and happy I am with all the work you have done to my condominium. My hardwood floors came out beyond my expectations. The grain of the wood and the color and quality of the finish are just beautiful. The details of craftsmanship in your work are super. I’ve never seen hardwood floors as beautiful as mine anywhere.
You did such a wonderful job improving the appearance of my walls and ceilings—fixing and painting them so beautifully. My home is now so bright and looks brand new to me. Your attention to ‘doing the job right’ despite the challenges that each job presented was amazing. It is easy for me to see that you know what you’re doing and know how to do it well.
I appreciated the time you took to explain to me the details of the jobs; keeping me informed of your progress and encouraging my input when it was needed. You are very professional and managed and organized your time well. You have made this ‘home improvement’ experience very pleasant and positive for me. Please feel free to use me as a reference for any future customers.”
"David completed a painting project in my home last year. Prior to this project picking out colors was very intimidating. The colors I chose always looked so different once the job was completed. This time was different. I discussed with David the color and look I wanted, he gave some suggestions and I got exactly what I was hoping for. The work was excellent. All the trim work is perfect. The rooms look awesome!"
Thanks for a job well done!
"It has been a pleasure doing business with Above & Beyond. We found David through a neighbor, whose floors he had refinished throughout their whole house. It was a beautiful job, so I had the advantage of seeing his work and hearing what a professional, meticulous craftsman he was to work with. We hired him to remove carpet and refinish our stairs and upper hallway. We also had a new banister installed, and David did a wonderful job finishing the handrail. I was struggling with how to finish it and he supplied me with great samples of stain colors and finishes to help me decide. It came out beautiful and there is not a rough spot to be found!! He is now back for phase two, tearing up carpets and refinishing the hardwood floors in the three upstairs bedrooms. I would not hesitate to recommend Above & Beyond and look forward to having him back for future projects!"

"We were looking to refinish our cork floors in preparation for selling our condo. Finding someone willing even to look at this still rare type of flooring seemed impossible, until we found David. From our first meeting, David's professionalism and experience was clear. His work did not disappoint: Our floors looked better than new when he was done with them. He went beyond the scope of the original job and perfected details that we ourselves would have overlooked. David turned what could have been a real negative into one of our greatest selling points: We sold our condo in two days in a down market, and one of the biggest reasons? The floors! We will certainly turn to David any time we have a home improvement need."

"David, a quick note to say thanks for the very professional manner in which you undertook the installation of the hardwood floors with (Streetshoe) for the living room, dining room, and family room. Exceptional work! I also appreciate the extra time you spent back and forth to the supply houses when we decided to add tile in the kitchen--the flexibility in scheduling to accomadate the added work was above and beyond. I can't tell you how many comments we get related to your work."
