VARIOUS PROJECTS – 2010/2011
In Spring 2010, I solicited 4 bids from contractors throughout Orange County in order to design, plan and price a total renovation of the exterior of my home in Warwick, New York. I met with each contractor on two occasions to: (a) discuss a vision for the exterior renovation that was attractive, energy efficient, incorporate quality building materials and adhere to my budget; and, (b) listen to a presentation from each of the 4 contractors that focused upon design and cost. I selected Beyond Improvements Home Investments (BIHI) based upon the plan presented by Chris Kehoe. It was obvious to me that Chris invested the time and energy in the Kehoe Kustom LLCproposal that was responsive to my request and needs. The renovation project included the following elements:
1. Replace roof with GAF Architectural Design shingles with 30 year warranty,
2. Install attractive and functional gutter system,
3. Wrap entire house with Styrofoam panels to increase energy efficiency and reduce energy costs,
4. Cover with Certainteed vinyl siding (.046) which was placed on top of the Styrofoam panels,
5. Design and construct a deck with Azek boards and railings which replaced rotted pressure-treated deck,
6. Replace balcony flooring with Azek boards and railings,
7. Install CST pavers on deck landings and on front porch
8. Re-route power lines and remove potentially dangerous situation by running lines under ground.
9. Install exterior lighting on deck and porch.
This work was organized, directed and managed by Chris Kehoe. Chris was on the job everyday and orchestrated a network of suppliers and service providers. The job was completed on time and within budget. Chris provided on-going project progress reports, recommended products for me to review at area suppliers and on the internet, as well as reviewed expenditures throughout the entire process.
In August 2011, I called upon Chris to respond to another home improvement/ renovation project. He assembled a team in order to replace a faulty chimney, replace an aging furnace with an Energy Star boiler and replace rotted framing and mold-ridden drywall. Again, Chris completed the job in a timely manner and within budget. He demonstrated attention to detail in scheduling other workers and work was completed to meet with standards and my expectations.
It is without reservation that I recommend Kehoe Kustom and Chris Kehoe for your home renovation, home improvement or new construction projects. Kehoe Kustom was able to meet my needs and exceed my expectations. Chris Kehoe has the disposition and skills as well as the knowledge to make your project an enjoyable venture.

EXTERIOR MOLDING AND LANDSCAPE – 2010 – 2012
I met Chris Kehoe in 2010, having bought a new construction home I knew I would need to hire someone for several projects my wife and I had planned. I can’t say how happy we are that we met Chris and the Kehoe Kustom crew. Chris and his staff have been a pleasure to work with.
He is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of home construction and has been very professional to work with on all the projects we’ve done together.
He offers excellent insight for both ideas and strategies and then is able to perform at the highest levels using the best materials on the market. Chris has helped us make several decisions on our home and we plan to use Kehoe Kustom in the future for additional projects. Chris has always stood by his work and completed the job to specification. I would recommend Chris and his team to any homeowner!

REMODEL WORK – 2011
Chris Kehoe is absolutley the kind of contractor that you want doing work in and around your palace! He is an asset to the construction/remodeling industry.
MULTIPLE PROJECTS – 2011
I have now used Kehoe Kustom three times and with each job I am more impressed. Chris exceeds my expectations every time and his work is meticulous. Chris is happy to talk at length about the projects and to make changes as the job progresses. I am certain that there is no job too big or too small for Kehoe Kustom and I will recommend them highly to everyone I know!
MASTER BEDROOM RENOVATION – 2010
Chris was recommend to us in early 2010 by Kuiken Bros. here in Warwick. Chris worked with us on 3 different projects over the course of the summer including a complete rebuild of our rear entry stairway and door, in addition to replacing our front window bump-outs that had sustained water damage. After seeing the quality of his work on these projects, coupled with his pleasant demeanor and we felt very comfortable having Chris complete our Master Bathroom renovation this past December.
WE LOVE THIS BATHROOM! Chris took our design concept and made some key suggestions that really made a difference. Chris does not take short-cuts, uses the best products and materials and explains in detail what he’s doing which really made us feel part of the process.
We would definitely work with Chris again on future projects.

NEW PORCH & WALKWAY – 2010
Chris Kehoe (Kehoe Kustom) was recommended to us by a European craftsman who had seen Chris’ work and recognized the quality. Chris looked at some preliminary porch designs that we were considering and suggested a simple architectural change that really enhanced the look of the porch. Chris took the time to answer our questions and understand what we wanted. He provided a range of options and prices, and worked with us to make the most of our project budget. Chris was very responsive, easy to work with, and met his commitments. We are very happy with our new porch and walkway, and have received numerous compliments from friends and neighbors. We highly recommend Chris Kehoe and Kehoe Kustom.

DINING ROOM CHAIR RAIL – 2009
Kehoe Kustom was professional from the start of our project. In the matter of a single day, the room was completely transformed. The attention to detail is what separates Kehoe Kustom from the rest of the contractors I have used in the past. You won’t be disappointed with the quality of the work!

SUNROOM WALLING – 2009
Kehoe Kustom did an outstanding job repairing a badly water logged outside walls around our sunroom. They removed the shake siding, inner rotting wood and reframed the walls inside and out and replaced the wood siding. From our initial contact, Chris was courteous, punctual, reliable, professional who was able to stay within our budget, and an excellent craftsman. As a retired home builder I highly recommend him as a contractor for any home building projects.

KITCHEN REMODEL/INTERIOR TRIMMING – 2009
Kehoe Kustom performed a complete transformation to our home including a kitchen remodel, new bay window, with new trim and paint through out our house. The detail, quality, dedication, and price were second to none. The job truly was beyond an improvement.
WINDOWS, WALKWAY, WOODWORK – 2007 TO 2009
We purchased our home in 2007 and have been doing renovations since. One of those projects consisted of new windows, for the first floor of our bi-level home. Chris was referred to us by an authorized dealer for Anderson Windows. He was not at the top of my list, because I was rooting for another well known contracting company. My husband felt confident, after speaking with Chris (which is not easily achieved) and decided to work with him. Here we are, three jobs later, where Chris recently made our front walk, a beautiful, welcoming walkway! He is extremely reliable, punctual, creative and gifted at his craft. Working with Chris is not only beneficial because of the quality work he does, but also for the money we have SAVED with him. We are currently discussing another project, and it won’t be the last. Prior to working with Chris, we had several contractors…now we only have one! Keep up the fantastic work!
BATHROOM RENOVATIONS – 2010
Chris recently renovated 2 bathrooms for us. The work was done timely and neatly. My husband and myself are very pleased with the quality of the work.
