Deck Project – 2017
Chris and his team are the most remarkable group of skilled professionals that I have ever worked with. They deconstructed and recreated a stunning new Azek deck for my home. Chris has that wonderful ability to listen carefully, read between the lines and present the perfect plan. All of my desires and expectations were not only met but exceeded. My new deck was not just constructed, it was hand-crafted with precision and care that is a rare commodity these days. The Kehoe Kustom team are true craftsmen. Thanks guys for my gorgeous new deck!
Front Porch – 2016
Chris of Kehoe Kustom, LLC removed a decaying existing porch and replaced using modern low maintenance products. The project began on time and was completed when promised. The level of craftsmanship displayed in the finished product is truly reminiscent of a bygone era. Details in the trim and the quality of fit and finish is exemplary. I would certainly recommend Chris to others and would hire again for future needs.
Deck Project – 2016
Chris Kehoe is a true professional who provided us with an outstanding result. His quality of service and workmanship are both of the highest standards and in our opinion warrant the price paid for this project. We are delighted with the outcome and would highly recommend Orange County Deck to others.
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 Moldings and Landscaping – 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!

New Porch and 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.

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.

Windows, Walkway, and 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!
