"Knockout Renovation is a high-quality company. That was very much our experience when they recently completed a kitchen, bathroom and hallway renovation. I believe they deserve five stars, I encourage you to click on More Reviews to see all of them. Almost all are positive. You won't be disappointed if you use Knockout Renovation! Keith is a pleasure to work with, and so were his folks."
— Lois D.
"This is my second time working on an apartment renovation with Knockout and once again it was overall a very positive experience. Keith and his team provide an excellent level of service and quality beginning during the planning phase and not letting up until the last times on the punch list are done. All the way through, the Knockout guys are attentive and responsive: communications and customer satisfaction are clearly a priority. In contrast to stories I hear about working with other contractors, with Knockout there is never any chasing to do. Work is delivered on time and on budget. Any changes or problems that arise are dealt with efficiently and without debate. I have recommended their services to several friends and would do so again without hesitation. Knockout is not the cheapest option, but they may well be the best. In the end you get what you pay for. "

"It was a pleasure working with Keith and Loredana on my kitchen renovation project. I had never undertaken such a large and costly project before, and Keith turned a potentially intimidating and sprawling effort into a straightforward plan. Loredana is an excellent designer and has a knack for understanding the needs of clients with little or no experience in home design. She's a little stubborn but it's OK because she's always right.
Knockout is a full-service firm and works directly with co-op or condo boards if needed so you don't have to handle the paperwork. They also work with their own subcontractors and suppliers and prefer to purchase materials through them. The end result is pricier than a lot of contractors but the savings in time and effort made up for it in my case. I would definitely work with Knockout again in the future."
— Michael F.

"We were very happy with our choice of Knockout. Our experience was very good and certainly we will recommend to our friends. Thank you!!"
— Mauro L.
"I have used them three separate times - twice for kitchen renovations (at different apartments) and once for a living room and bedroom floor replacement. That was over the course of more than 10 years, so I am clearly very happy with their service. I'm planning to hire them again for a bathroom renovation within the next year.
I find them very responsive and easy to work with. Keith, the owner, was very involved in my projects and goes out of his way to ensure that everything is up to his high standards.
The subcontractors were professional and trustworthy. They showed up each day, although a few times they were late. In my view, if that is the worst experience in a renovation, you've done well.
None of my projects ever exceeded budget due to any omissions on Knockout's part. and deadlines within Knockout's control were always met."

"I hired Knockout Renovation to renovate my kitchen and bathroom in my prewar apartment in 2007. After carefully planning the project exactly to my specifications, Keith and his team completed the work on time and within our planned budget. My apartment posed some unique challenges given that the building was built in the 1920's and Knockout was able to come up with solutions to problems posed by working in an old building. I found them to be proactive, creative, responsible and thorough. The quality of their work was ver high and they made sure that I was completely happy with everything before deeming the project "complete." After living in the apartment for seven years, a pipe behind the wall in my kitchen broke (it was a building problem, completely unrelated to anything Knockout had done) which necessitated sections of my floor and cabinets being removed so the plumbers could access the problem area. I called Keith and although he had completed his work for me seven years ago, he called me back within minutes and arranged for someone to be in to my apartment on the very next business day to fix what ended up being a complicated problem. He didn't even charge me to do this "follow up" work despite the fact that the problem was in no way caused by Knockout and several years had passed. I so appreciate his professionalism, efficiency, fairness and trustworthiness. I feel very confident recommending Knockout to anyone interested in a high quality renovation of their home "
— Rebecca M.
"The thorough follow up and attentiveness of everyone I've dealt with from your company was truly impressive. As someone with a truly busy schedule, I can't imagine getting everything done without everyone's, especially Anthony's help. Ed and Tom have both been extremely patient with me and I appreciate that. Thank you for your help, it was a pleasure working with you."
— Chloe S. New York, NY
"Knockout did a complete redesign/renovation of our 2 bedroom apartment (approach 1,000 sq-ft). Amazing attention to detail and incredibly responsive. Aside from a couple of minor hiccups (all projects of this scale'll have 'em), they far exceeded all of our expectations and would immediately turn to them if we were To have any additional renovation needs. These guys are full service - from creating the design/blueprints to following through in making it exactly as it was planned. Everyone at this company, from the person answering the phone to the owner care and work hard to make ones renovations go smoothly."
— Jason R. New York, NY

Completed project ahead of schedule."

"There is absolutely no hyperbole in our belief when we say that bar none, your company has easily been the most honest, professional, and enjoyable vendors that we have ever been involved with."

"I'd like to take this time to thank Keith and his workers for giving me the kitchen I always wanted. They really did a beautiful job. My husband and I are very happy with the work they did and how hard they worked to get it done. They take time and care in what they do, and it shows in the finished product. They give you exactly what you want. Not only are they excellent at what they do, but they are courteous, conscientious and hard working individuals. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants a professional and great job done.
I couldn't have had a nicer group of men working at my home."
— Annie C. NY, NY
"Working with Knockout Renovation was a wonderful experience. I had been through so many different contractors prior to finding Knockout and my renovations had turned into a nightmare. But when I hired Knockout Renovations, they restored my faith in home renovations. They were professional, courteous, and very skilled in their work. They took the time to truly understand what I was looking for, and then they delivered it. I would hire them again to do any job, large or small. And I would recommend them to anyone. I don't think there is a better home improvement company out there."
