Stitch Coterie is by far the best general contracting and all around company. Nick is reliable, timely, neat, knows his stuff about everything and is extremely reliable. The best to work with…Patricia

I was very pleased with the professionalism of Stitch Coterie INC. I live all the way in Montgomery, NY and they didn’t hesitate to travel to my destination. They were on time, reliable, and the job they provided was very immaculate. I would highly recommend them to anyone who’s looking to work with a prestigious team.

I had inquired extensively about getting my dishwasher properly installed and having the custom panel placed. Nick at Stitch answered the call – literally. He was easy to get ahold of and confirmed that he could come the next day to tackle the project. He arrived with his assistant, and they got to work. The project ended up being more complicated than it initially appeared. But they didn’t stop until everything was completed to perfection. I’m so happy with the result and overall experience that I will definitely use Stitch for all my household projects. Highly Recommend! A++++

Nick and his crew did a phenomenal job putting up ceiling lights in our apartment. The work included installing cord tracks in the ceiling, tracking cords inside the drywall to the outlet, and installing pendants, chandeliers and track lights in all rooms.

Nick & Co. delivered a high-quality job with equal focus on aesthetics and function.

Nick was super communicative throughout the whole process, and he and the electrician Alex were an absolute pleasure to work with! They truly went above and beyond to deliver a job to our desired specifications. Alex even helped assemble our chandelier!

Nick carries insurance and licensing which makes him ideal for all contracting work in our condo. We have also contracted with him to install a new garbage disposal and to perform our annual HVAC service.

We couldn’t be more pleased with the service and outstanding work they delivered.

Would give 6 stars if I could. This is company to use if you’re looking for a personal and professional experience at a very reasonable price point.

Nick was one of the best handymen that I have ever hired. It was hard to find an electrician willing to take on smaller jobs (changing light fixture due to leak). Nick was a godsend.

Nick did a few things at my place including waterline installation, electric outlets rewiring, installed a ductless range hood ,and more.
Great work ethnics overall! Communication was crystal clear from the beginning. Job was completed to the exact specifications, with no shortcuts and no hidden charges. I am most appreciative of the fact that Nick and his team take safety very seriously, both from a COVID perspective and on the work itself.

Like others have said before, it is difficult to find a contractor that carries insurance, proper licensing, and willing to take on smaller jobs.
Highly recommend.

Really really professional and knowledgeable; fixed my clogged sink with his wisdom and insight; very very organized and great problem-solving skills; highly recommend for every single problem in your home appliances; I wish I could give 6 stars!!! And Nick had a great personality and work attitude! I respect his professionalism and help! Don’t hesitate to contact him!

My building insurance requirements had frustrated other small contractors from doing a bathroom renovation. Nick was the only person who persevered in getting a plumber and the appropriate insurance together to get the job done.

Nick installed a ductless range hood in my kitchen. He is very professional and precise with all of his measurements/installation process. He even showed me how to replace the filters and takeout the lightbulbs, when they need to be changed. I will be working with Nick again.

Look no further and find Nick for your next home project!

I’ve been searching for a contractor to help me install a bathroom shower screen, ceiling mounted double curtain rods and deconstruct a custom made kitchen island for a long time. Initially I wondered whether all the good reviews on Yelp was true. But my experience working with Nick proved that even “perfect” doesn’t do justice for his work.

If you’re looking for a competent, punctual, trustworthy, reasonably priced plumber and all-round nice guy, Nick at Stitch Coterie is the man to call.

I needed my new gas range installed, and I’d asked for an estimate from a large company masquerading under a personal name. They sent a barely competent “supervisor” round to look at the job, then gave me a ridiculously high price and lied to me about City requirements.

When I called Nick, he was available to do the job almost immediately, but first we had to negotiate the building management’s demands for a certificate of insurance; that done, Nick came by a few days later and installed my range in less than an hour, with no fuss or bother, for 20% of the big company’s estimate. He even supplied the flexible connector for free. I’m so glad I found him and didn’t go with the first plumber I called. I know he does other kinds of work besides plumbing, so I’m planning to hire him again in a few weeks to fix a couple of closet doors, lay some floor tiles, and put up wallpaper.

We experienced a water leak in our basement ceiling. Water all over the floor, damaged ceilings, and damaged appliances.

Nick was incredibly professional in helping us through this process. Not only did he not try to pressure us or use scare tactics into using his services, he was incredibly patient with asking the right questions to best diagnose the issue.

Given that the plumbing in question was behind walls, he was transparent that he wouldn’t be able to fully diagnose the issue until those were opened.
Nick ended up diagnosing and remediating the root issue and repairing our ceilings in a timely, professional manner. Highly recommended.

Nick has such a positive and optimistic attitude and it made me, a frustrated and sensitive client, relieved. I was totally stressed out for my faucet and some other issues of my apartment that had a deadline to be fixed. Nick had to visit my apartment due to unforeseen issues, yet he never complained. Instead, he voluntarily offered an extra visit/work to make my work on time. He did finish the job done not only on time but also at a premium level of quality. Moreover, he offered a very reasonable price that I can realistically afford. Again, I do appreciate this positive attitude and communication skills.

You know what’s super-fun? Having your kitchen sink clog up totally on a Friday afternoon in lower Manhattan! Good luck getting anyone to come out and fix it. But Nick called me back right away, was totally polite, gave me a timeframe about when he’d come by, kept me updated via text as I asked, and then actually showed up right when he said he would. He and Junior were lovely and did a great job. Pricing was toward the upper end of what I’ve been quoted for similar jobs, but I’ll always happily pay a bit more for reliability and utter non-shadiness.

Nick was amazing. Unfortunately we had to reschedule the original appointment because he had to take care of an emergency job, but he was super apologetic and polite and came the very next day.

Nick was quick, polite, and professional. I had been struggling with a clogged drain for over a month now and tried every product and home remedy to no avail, but he managed to take care of it just like that. He also fixed my ceiling light that hadn’t been working for a while now. He’s an absolute magician!

On top of that, he also pointed out some issues with my heating system that I hadn’t noticed before and gave me a quick run down of how it’s supposed to be working.

I would have no reservations recommending Nick to anyone else who needs something taken care of quickly and professionally.

Great experience! Nick was very responsive and was able to come the next day to install a new kitchen faucet. He is very friendly and checked everything to make sure it functioned appropriately and was very patient to make adjustments as needed. I would hire them again in a hot minute!

Overall a great experience. Stitch coterie missed our first appointment due to another job running late. I expected this from the reviews I read and opted to still use because I cared more about good work and luckily have a flexible schedule. When he arrived he quickly assessed that a special tool would be needed to drill through concrete to hang my chandelier. We rescheduled again and he promptly showed up and had the resources to get another tool when the one he brought didn’t work. He was very professional and knew what he was doing, took his time and made sure the job was to our satisfaction. Our chandelier looks great and I would definitely use him again.

I had a serious problem with water leakage in my kitchen. I dreaded having to deal with plumbers because of the risk of being taken advantage of because I was desperate to get back use of my kitchen sink. The first plumber I called the night before arrived 3 hours late and did a lousy acting job of how difficult the leak was going to be to fix and gave me an outrageous price. I told him that I needed to get another estimate. Yelp led me to Stitch Coterie and Nick responded immediately. His schedule was full but he did fit me in. He did a thorough job of identifying the two causes of the serious water problem. He gave me a very fair price for repair. Even though he had to make a couple of trips to different stores to find the right parts, he did not charge me above the price he paid for the new faucet and did not charge me at all for the parts to replace a section of the pipes. He was honest and kind. I would never consider calling anybody but Nick for any plumbing problem because he is a great combination of being an exceptionally skilled and talented contractor who is trustworthy. A true hero in my eyes!

I requested Nick to tighten my faucet and faucet handle as it was very loose. I couldn’t do it because I didn’t have a big wrench. I chatted with Nick and he gave me a good quote so I asked him to come by. He scheduled right away, came by to do the work quickly and kept his word on the rate despite it was not the easiest job. I am very happy for his service – very reliable guy Nick is. I will definitely request his service again.

Nick is terrific! He responded immediately on Yelp to my request with a price estimate, and then came same day to make a repair. He is very friendly and resolved the issue perfectly and quickly! Would recommend!

James Y.

Nick not only answered the phone immediately, he flew to the rescue within 20 minutes! And this was an emergency situation at the end of the day. Amazing.

But wait, there’s more!

He fixed our boiler issue within minutes and even showed me some tips for future potential mishaps.

But wait, there’s more!

He is the friendliest guy with the widest smile.

Safe to say his number has now been recorded in my phone and I will happily recommend him to anyone in need of plumbing repair.

Thanks, Nick!

Nick is an excellent professional. While he may not always show up exactly on time, it’s fine. Be aware these guys are going from job to job and often delays happen so can’t expect him to show up exactly at time promised. Realistically expect a few hour window for his arrival. Nick did a quick fix to the shower regulator to restore hot water when other plumbers were quick to sell me a new friggin water heater for several thousand dollars. Another plumber told me my radiator heat in a room could not be restored unless I installed a brand new piping to the room which would have cost thousands. Nick came and assessed the radiator and fixed it! Bottom line, I find other pros quick to recommend complete overhaul of systems. Nick on the other hand is actually very experienced and has shown the ability to identify problems and fix things others cannot, saving me thousands. Finally he is very quick to respond via yelp or messaging. He often replies within the hour

Nick has been very helpful for a variety of projects, including plumbing, electrical, and handy-work. It’s been great working with someone who has such a wide range of skills, instead of hiring a new person for each task. He’s also very nice and didn’t over charge.

|December 20, 2018

It was great working with Nick. He’s super nice and knows what he’s doing! He installed a hanging light for me over my dining room table, and he did it professionally and very quickly. He was also able to accommodate my work schedule and come at the end of the day. I would definitely recommend his services.

Nick is the ultimate professional. Timely, very fair pricing, trustworthy, and does the highest level, professional quality work. Doesn’t cut corners, does the job very detailed and very careful, and completes thoroughly no matter how long the job takes. Gets it done, and you end with an amazing finished product!

I had a bit of a time sensitive electrical issue I needed some help with, and after a quick Yelp Request-a-Quote query, I was paired up with Nicholas from Stitch Coterie. As others have echoed previously, it was a great experience and one I’d lean on again in the future.

He replied with lightning fast speed and was at my apartment within a couple of hours. It was a pretty simple job, but one that I wouldn’t have felt comfortable doing myself. He was in-and-out in just about 15 minutes, and the price was respectable for the work done.

If you need a hand with some home improvement that you’d prefer leaving to a professional instead of watching a Youtube video and hoping you don’t burn your place down, I’d recommend Stitch Coterie to anyone.

Nick is great! He came in on time, fixed my leaking faucet and cleaned it up. Price is also reasonable. Will recommend to friends!

I needed my new dishwasher installed (and my old one removed). I was originally supposed to have Best Buy’s third-party installation team (XPO Logistics Last Mile) do it but they were rude, unprofessional, and basically said they couldn’t do it.

I reached out to Nicholas on Yelp and got a response almost immediately. He gave me a quote and was able to schedule me in the following week. He arrived on time and got straight to it. He removed the old one and put the next one in seamlessly; he also tested the new one to make sure everything worked and checked to make sure there was no leaking. It took about 2 hours because he had to work around a broke hot water valve (which he also said he could fix for us when we’re ready). Cost $300, which is on par to what I was getting quoted by others.

Would definitely recommend!

I have an apartment in Manhattan and when I needed them, they were on time, knew what they were doing. Got the job done for the price they quoted. Nothing was beyond what was needed. Highly recommend, plus they have a license for Manhattan buildings if needed.

Company does good work.
Arrived on time
Worked with me on the price,
Waited while I got some on the parts.
Checked back later to make sure everything was still working as expected.
Will call them for more jobs.

I hired him to replace 2 faucets in my apartment, one in the kitchen and one in the bathroom. He showed up on time, was very professional and polite, provided impeccable service and installation. In addition, he was very price competitive versus the alternative providers I had contacted. I highly recommend him!

I had lights along my wall that had been broken for a long time. It started off with just one light being broken and I had a handyman come in a year ago to fix it but because my wall didn’t have an access panel, he hacked the wires together to make it work. Fast forward a year later, now three of my four lights were broken. I went on yelp to find someone to help me install an access panel so that I could actually access the wires behind to fix the lights. I reached out to a few vendors and Stitch Coterie was the most professional and responsive of them all. I got an appointment set up within the same week.

Admittedly, I was a little wary since there weren’t any reviews on yelp but I did my research and found them listed on HomeAdvisor where they had a ton of great reviews so I decided to go ahead with the booking.

Nicholas showed up on time and came prepared. He not only installed the access panel, but also helped me get a new transformer. When that didn’t do the trick, he diagnosed the faulty wiring that had happened through the first builder and previous handyman, then rewired everything and made sure that my goal of working lights & beautiful wall was met (vs. some vendors who would have just installed the access panel and called it a day). On top of it all, he repainted and fixed everything up to make it looks as good as new. He even made sure to clean/sweep the floor afterwards. He really takes pride in his work and I was impressed by not just how great everything turned out but also the warm/dependable service and quick turnaround of results.

I highly recommend this service and would go to Stitch Coterie and Nicholas again for any of my future repair needs. Thank you again for your great work, Nicholas! We are super happy with the results!

  Stitch Coterie and  team replaced my entire shower faucet and my kitchen garbage disposal. The job looked seamless and flawless that I didn't recognized the work done. They're excellent and very professional with  good work ethics that's unquestionable! I will always go to Stitch Coterie Inc and off course recommend them to anyone! Hands down, Nick is the man to go to!

  THANK YOU NICHOLAS! Great communication, fast response, polite, and professional.

My guest bathroom has had a terrible odor (sewage smell) for a year now that it got to a point where I was embarrassed to have guests over. My parents kept attributing it to infrequent use so I kept flushing it, even using baking soda and vinegar (like the internet suggested). The smell got worse and water started seeping out from the ground with every flush. The handyman in my building took a look and said the wax seal had to be replaced but that such work was not the building's responsibility. As I've never hired a plumber before, I went on yelp to ask for a quote and Nicholas responded immediately. My building requires the vendor to submit a COI and to fill out a form, both of which Nicholas sent me immediately.

When Nicholas showed up, he was nice, polite, always smiling, efficient, and fast (whole thing only took 1 hour). He also took the time to explain to me what was wrong and what he did to fix the issue. The final bill came out to be $300 which is a lot cheaper than a quote I got from another vendor ($475).

  My kitchen sink was clogged and Nick and his team came over to help. What we thought would've been a simple unclogging turned out to be a bigger problem with the main lines in my apartment building. Nick and his team were thorough and dedicated to job. They helped diagnose the problem and worked with my super and building management to figure out the main issue. Nick also figured out one of my pipes was rusting and helped me replace it for a reasonable price for materials and service. I definitely recommend Nick and his team for any job since you can count on them to be reliable and thorough.

  Nick and his team remodeled my garage and it came out perfect. They took a hoarder's paradise and turned it into something I would be excited to show friends and family (and trust me, I have.)

The crew were very friendly and were always there to answer the millions of questions that I had. The craftsmanship is top notch and speed in which they completed the project was impressive. The only hiccup was the replacement side door (I wanted a door that opened outwards, but didn't want to worry about hitting the car when I opened it.) That was totally a supply issue, but Nick was able to get the door situtation all settled and it works like a charm.

Since they finished the job, I added a few of my own touches, but none of that could've happened without the team at Stitch Coterie.

All I can say is, its like an apartment now! I guess I have a place to stay if my wife kicks me out of the house.

  Nick and his team finished up a renovations job for me last month and I am thrilled with the results! I have a very old apartment with chipped flooring and walls and there hasn't been any renovations for over 30 years so you can imagine how bad it was -- all that needed a major redo. Nick was willing to work with us to make it happen in an affordable/manageable way. Nick is highly communicative and transparent on issues. If there are any doubts, don't hesitate to let him know right away. He's great about listening to feedback and addressing them right away. Even if Nick is busy, he'll find a way to get in touch with you and address your needs and concerns. I was and have always been very skeptical of contractors and he's the only one I'll trust.

  This company is horrible.!!! My hot water heater stopped working they came out Monday evening took my $75 said they'll be back. And never returned.!! No one answers the phone and I have been calling since the man never returned still have no hot water and out of $75.!!! Can't believe a company would provide such crappy services.! Especially during these hard times I don't have money to waste and my family needs hot water. I would never use this trash ass company and don't recommend it. Knowing your African American is even worse too.!! It be your own people providing horrible services. You guys suck and don't need to be in no business want to take people money and go.!

  Nick helped us figure out how to install an outside faucet on our patio, and then his crew was amazingly efficient at doing the work. I appreciated that they worked with me to come up with a plan that would minimize the amount of drywall work, and were willing to involve me in the details of the work they were doing - it felt like a great collaboration, with excellent communication and no surprises. Watching them work, it was clear this was a crew of pros who weren't cutting corners. I'm absolutely going to hire them again for our next project.

Nick and Alberto repaired the walls and ceiling within my bathroom as well as areas of an adjoining wall in my kitchen that were damaged by a major leak from the upstairs apartment over the summer. This involved removing the severely damaged areas of my bathroom ceiling, cleaning it out, using the better products to ensure that there would be no mold or mildew, resurfacing the entire area and painting the bathroom. They also had to scrape, plaster and repaint the kitchen walls which adjoin the bathroom. I have lived in this apartment since I bought it 30 years ago. I was vigilant about the work being done. I have dealt with several building contractors over the years and one private painter-plasterer who has passed away. With the exception of the latter, the others were not nearly as careful nor as expert as Nick and Alberto. Nick made sure that all work was done properly. Areas were allowed to set properly and dry out in between stages. This was not always the case with previous building contractors who tended to rush jobs. I realize that there are schedules to be kept, but I noticed that Nick tends to have his other work organized well so that he can attend to other sites while mine dried out and return promptly to complete the next stage. I prefer this; doing something thoroughly always works. Clean up was done efficiently. Communication between us was fine. The subcontractors who came in to resurface my bath tub, were clear in explaining the process, how to care for the area and what to avoid. They arrived promptly and were pleasant to work with as well. This process was done to my standards. I am glad to recommend Nick and those who work well with him.

This company is amazing. First of all, their prices are fair. Second of all, they know how to do literally anything, from plumbing to electricity to construction. I just moved into a home and I had several things I needed help with... replacing a garage door, replacing a patio door, showers that were not running hot water, lights that were not turning on, mice popping out of random holes in the house. I called this company on a Saturday night, and Nick came out the next day to give a free estimate of the work requested. I had already had a plumber come out for the showers, that said there was nothing he could do about it, but Nick quickly recognized that the handles were not installed properly, and quickly fixed the issue. In total, with all the work, he came with various company members a total of about 5 times. The work was done with care, professionally, and he explained everything that was needed. They also took appropriate precautions, (masks, staying 6 week apart, minimal people) considering the COVID 19 precautions. Nick genuinely seemed like he cared about the work and doing it well, and they did an excellent job. I would highly recommend this company!

You know how, when you're about to write a great review of a little known-restaurant, you feel a little worried because you fear you'll never get into the restaurant again? Well, this is like that. I am worried that Nick may never have time for me. In a sea of meh contractors, he is a standout. He comes when you need him. His prices are reasonable. He analyzes a problem and takes care of it. He will turn up for small jobs as well as big ones. Today he fixed the five or six electrical outlets in my home that didn't work, and hadn't worked, for years. (One might not think that burnt electrical outlets constitute an emergency during the Covid crisis, but since one involved the microwave, and I am sheltering in place with perpetually ravenous 18 year old boys, this constituted an emergency) When I am allowed, he will be my go-to for entirely renovating my kitchen. That is, if he still has time for me.

Nick did a great job coordinating with our co-op in Jackson Heights, Queens. The first day he came the super wasn't there to turn off the water so that Nick could do the work. Fortunately Nick came by the following day when the water could be turned off and he fixed the issue at an affordable price. We're pleased with the quality of the work and everything seems to be working great now. Thank you Nick and team!

Nick and his crew did a phenomenal job putting up ceiling lights in our apartment. The work included installing cord tracks in the ceiling, tracking cords inside the drywall to the outlet, and installing pendants, chandeliers and track lights in all rooms.

Nick & Co. delivered a high-quality job with equal focus on aesthetics and function.

Nick was super communicative throughout the whole process, and he and the electrician Alex were an absolute pleasure to work with! They truly went above and beyond to deliver a job to our desired specifications. Alex even helped assemble our chandelier!

Nick carries insurance and licensing which makes him ideal for all contracting work in our condo. We have also contracted with him to install a new garbage disposal and to perform our annual HVAC service.

We couldn’t be more pleased with the service and outstanding work they delivered.

Would give 6 stars if I could. This is company to use if you’re looking for a personal and professional experience at a very reasonable price point.

Nick was one of the best handymen that I have ever hired. It was hard to find an electrician willing to take on smaller jobs (changing light fixture due to leak). Nick was a godsend.

Nick did a few things at my place including waterline installation, electric outlets rewiring, installed a ductless range hood ,and more.
Great work ethnics overall! Communication was crystal clear from the beginning. Job was completed to the exact specifications, with no shortcuts and no hidden charges. I am most appreciative of the fact that Nick and his team take safety very seriously, both from a COVID perspective and on the work itself.

Like others have said before, it is difficult to find a contractor that carries insurance, proper licensing, and willing to take on smaller jobs.
Highly recommend.

My building insurance requirements had frustrated other small contractors from doing a bathroom renovation. Nick was the only person who persevered in getting a plumber and the appropriate insurance together to get the job done.

Nick installed a ductless range hood in my kitchen. He is very professional and precise with all of his measurements/installation process. He even showed me how to replace the filters and takeout the lightbulbs, when they need to be changed. I will be working with Nick again.

Look no further and find Nick for your next home project!

I’ve been searching for a contractor to help me install a bathroom shower screen, ceiling mounted double curtain rods and deconstruct a custom made kitchen island for a long time. Initially I wondered whether all the good reviews on Yelp was true. But my experience working with Nick proved that even “perfect” doesn’t do justice for his work.

If you’re looking for a competent, punctual, trustworthy, reasonably priced plumber and all-round nice guy, Nick at Stitch Coterie is the man to call.

I needed my new gas range installed, and I’d asked for an estimate from a large company masquerading under a personal name. They sent a barely competent “supervisor” round to look at the job, then gave me a ridiculously high price and lied to me about City requirements.

When I called Nick, he was available to do the job almost immediately, but first we had to negotiate the building management’s demands for a certificate of insurance; that done, Nick came by a few days later and installed my range in less than an hour, with no fuss or bother, for 20% of the big company’s estimate. He even supplied the flexible connector for free. I’m so glad I found him and didn’t go with the first plumber I called. I know he does other kinds of work besides plumbing, so I’m planning to hire him again in a few weeks to fix a couple of closet doors, lay some floor tiles, and put up wallpaper.

We experienced a water leak in our basement ceiling. Water all over the floor, damaged ceilings, and damaged appliances.

Nick was incredibly professional in helping us through this process. Not only did he not try to pressure us or use scare tactics into using his services, he was incredibly patient with asking the right questions to best diagnose the issue.

Given that the plumbing in question was behind walls, he was transparent that he wouldn’t be able to fully diagnose the issue until those were opened.
Nick ended up diagnosing and remediating the root issue and repairing our ceilings in a timely, professional manner. Highly recommended.

Nick has such a positive and optimistic attitude and it made me, a frustrated and sensitive client, relieved. I was totally stressed out for my faucet and some other issues of my apartment that had a deadline to be fixed. Nick had to visit my apartment due to unforeseen issues, yet he never complained. Instead, he voluntarily offered an extra visit/work to make my work on time. He did finish the job done not only on time but also at a premium level of quality. Moreover, he offered a very reasonable price that I can realistically afford. Again, I do appreciate this positive attitude and communication skills.

You know what’s super-fun? Having your kitchen sink clog up totally on a Friday afternoon in lower Manhattan! Good luck getting anyone to come out and fix it. But Nick called me back right away, was totally polite, gave me a timeframe about when he’d come by, kept me updated via text as I asked, and then actually showed up right when he said he would. He and Junior were lovely and did a great job. Pricing was toward the upper end of what I’ve been quoted for similar jobs, but I’ll always happily pay a bit more for reliability and utter non-shadiness.

|April 10, 2019

Nick was amazing. Unfortunately we had to reschedule the original appointment because he had to take care of an emergency job, but he was super apologetic and polite and came the very next day.

Nick was quick, polite, and professional. I had been struggling with a clogged drain for over a month now and tried every product and home remedy to no avail, but he managed to take care of it just like that. He also fixed my ceiling light that hadn’t been working for a while now. He’s an absolute magician!

On top of that, he also pointed out some issues with my heating system that I hadn’t noticed before and gave me a quick run down of how it’s supposed to be working.

I would have no reservations recommending Nick to anyone else who needs something taken care of quickly and professionally.

Great experience! Nick was very responsive and was able to come the next day to install a new kitchen faucet. He is very friendly and checked everything to make sure it functioned appropriately and was very patient to make adjustments as needed. I would hire them again in a hot minute!

Overall a great experience. Stitch coterie missed our first appointment due to another job running late. I expected this from the reviews I read and opted to still use because I cared more about good work and luckily have a flexible schedule. When he arrived he quickly assessed that a special tool would be needed to drill through concrete to hang my chandelier. We rescheduled again and he promptly showed up and had the resources to get another tool when the one he brought didn’t work. He was very professional and knew what he was doing, took his time and made sure the job was to our satisfaction. Our chandelier looks great and I would definitely use him again.

I had a serious problem with water leakage in my kitchen. I dreaded having to deal with plumbers because of the risk of being taken advantage of because I was desperate to get back use of my kitchen sink. The first plumber I called the night before arrived 3 hours late and did a lousy acting job of how difficult the leak was going to be to fix and gave me an outrageous price. I told him that I needed to get another estimate. Yelp led me to Stitch Coterie and Nick responded immediately. His schedule was full but he did fit me in. He did a thorough job of identifying the two causes of the serious water problem. He gave me a very fair price for repair. Even though he had to make a couple of trips to different stores to find the right parts, he did not charge me above the price he paid for the new faucet and did not charge me at all for the parts to replace a section of the pipes. He was honest and kind. I would never consider calling anybody but Nick for any plumbing problem because he is a great combination of being an exceptionally skilled and talented contractor who is trustworthy. A true hero in my eyes!

|February 4, 2019

I requested Nick to tighten my faucet and faucet handle as it was very loose. I couldn’t do it because I didn’t have a big wrench. I chatted with Nick and he gave me a good quote so I asked him to come by. He scheduled right away, came by to do the work quickly and kept his word on the rate despite it was not the easiest job. I am very happy for his service – very reliable guy Nick is. I will definitely request his service again.

Nick not only answered the phone immediately, he flew to the rescue within 20 minutes! And this was an emergency situation at the end of the day. Amazing.

But wait, there’s more!

He fixed our boiler issue within minutes and even showed me some tips for future potential mishaps.

But wait, there’s more!

He is the friendliest guy with the widest smile.

Safe to say his number has now been recorded in my phone and I will happily recommend him to anyone in need of plumbing repair.

Thanks, Nick!

Nick is an excellent professional. While he may not always show up exactly on time, it’s fine. Be aware these guys are going from job to job and often delays happen so can’t expect him to show up exactly at time promised. Realistically expect a few hour window for his arrival. Nick did a quick fix to the shower regulator to restore hot water when other plumbers were quick to sell me a new friggin water heater for several thousand dollars. Another plumber told me my radiator heat in a room could not be restored unless I installed a brand new piping to the room which would have cost thousands. Nick came and assessed the radiator and fixed it! Bottom line, I find other pros quick to recommend complete overhaul of systems. Nick on the other hand is actually very experienced and has shown the ability to identify problems and fix things others cannot, saving me thousands. Finally he is very quick to respond via yelp or messaging. He often replies within the hour

Nick has been very helpful for a variety of projects, including plumbing, electrical, and handy-work. It’s been great working with someone who has such a wide range of skills, instead of hiring a new person for each task. He’s also very nice and didn’t over charge.

It was great working with Nick. He’s super nice and knows what he’s doing! He installed a hanging light for me over my dining room table, and he did it professionally and very quickly.

I had a bit of a time sensitive electrical issue I needed some help with, and after a quick Yelp Request-a-Quote query, I was paired up with Nicholas from Stitch Coterie. As others have echoed previously, it was a great experience and one I’d lean on again in the future.

He replied with lightning fast speed and was at my apartment within a couple of hours. It was a pretty simple job, but one that I wouldn’t have felt comfortable doing myself. He was in-and-out in just about 15 minutes, and the price was respectable for the work done.

If you need a hand with some home improvement that you’d prefer leaving to a professional instead of watching a Youtube video and hoping you don’t burn your place down, I’d recommend Stitch Coterie to anyone.

I needed my new dishwasher installed (and my old one removed). I was originally supposed to have Best Buy’s third-party installation team (XPO Logistics Last Mile) do it but they were rude, unprofessional, and basically said they couldn’t do it.

I reached out to Nicholas on Yelp and got a response almost immediately. He gave me a quote and was able to schedule me in the following week. He arrived on time and got straight to it. He removed the old one and put the next one in seamlessly; he also tested the new one to make sure everything worked and checked to make sure there was no leaking. It took about 2 hours because he had to work around a broke hot water valve (which he also said he could fix for us when we’re ready). Cost $300, which is on par to what I was getting quoted by others.

Would definitely recommend!

I had lights along my wall that had been broken for a long time. It started off with just one light being broken and I had a handyman come in a year ago to fix it but because my wall didn’t have an access panel, he hacked the wires together to make it work. Fast forward a year later, now three of my four lights were broken. I went on yelp to find someone to help me install an access panel so that I could actually access the wires behind to fix the lights. I reached out to a few vendors and Stitch Coterie was the most professional and responsive of them all. I got an appointment set up within the same week.

Admittedly, I was a little wary since there weren’t any reviews on yelp but I did my research and found them listed on HomeAdvisor where they had a ton of great reviews so I decided to go ahead with the booking.

Nicholas showed up on time and came prepared. He not only installed the access panel, but also helped me get a new transformer. When that didn’t do the trick, he diagnosed the faulty wiring that had happened through the first builder and previous handyman, then rewired everything and made sure that my goal of working lights & beautiful wall was met (vs. some vendors who would have just installed the access panel and called it a day). On top of it all, he repainted and fixed everything up to make it looks as good as new. He even made sure to clean/sweep the floor afterwards. He really takes pride in his work and I was impressed by not just how great everything turned out but also the warm/dependable service and quick turnaround of results.

I highly recommend this service and would go to Stitch Coterie and Nicholas again for any of my future repair needs. Thank you again for your great work, Nicholas! We are super happy with the results!

  Nick helped us figure out how to install an outside faucet on our patio, and then his crew was amazingly efficient at doing the work. I appreciated that they worked with me to come up with a plan that would minimize the amount of drywall work, and were willing to involve me in the details of the work they were doing - it felt like a great collaboration, with excellent communication and no surprises. Watching them work, it was clear this was a crew of pros who weren't cutting corners. I'm absolutely going to hire them again for our next project.

  Nick and his team remodeled my garage and it came out perfect. They took a hoarder's paradise and turned it into something I would be excited to show friends and family (and trust me, I have.)

The crew were very friendly and were always there to answer the millions of questions that I had. The craftsmanship is top notch and speed in which they completed the project was impressive. The only hiccup was the replacement side door (I wanted a door that opened outwards, but didn't want to worry about hitting the car when I opened it.) That was totally a supply issue, but Nick was able to get the door situtation all settled and it works like a charm.

Since they finished the job, I added a few of my own touches, but none of that could've happened without the team at Stitch Coterie.

All I can say is, its like an apartment now! I guess I have a place to stay if my wife kicks me out of the house.

  My kitchen sink was clogged and Nick and his team came over to help. What we thought would've been a simple unclogging turned out to be a bigger problem with the main lines in my apartment building. Nick and his team were thorough and dedicated to job. They helped diagnose the problem and worked with my super and building management to figure out the main issue. Nick also figured out one of my pipes was rusting and helped me replace it for a reasonable price for materials and service. I definitely recommend Nick and his team for any job since you can count on them to be reliable and thorough.

  Nick and his team finished up a renovations job for me last month and I am thrilled with the results! I have a very old apartment with chipped flooring and walls and there hasn't been any renovations for over 30 years so you can imagine how bad it was -- all that needed a major redo. Nick was willing to work with us to make it happen in an affordable/manageable way. Nick is highly communicative and transparent on issues. If there are any doubts, don't hesitate to let him know right away. He's great about listening to feedback and addressing them right away. Even if Nick is busy, he'll find a way to get in touch with you and address your needs and concerns. I was and have always been very skeptical of contractors and he's the only one I'll trust.

  THANK YOU NICHOLAS! Great communication, fast response, polite, and professional.

My guest bathroom has had a terrible odor (sewage smell) for a year now that it got to a point where I was embarrassed to have guests over. My parents kept attributing it to infrequent use so I kept flushing it, even using baking soda and vinegar (like the internet suggested). The smell got worse and water started seeping out from the ground with every flush. The handyman in my building took a look and said the wax seal had to be replaced but that such work was not the building's responsibility. As I've never hired a plumber before, I went on yelp to ask for a quote and Nicholas responded immediately. My building requires the vendor to submit a COI and to fill out a form, both of which Nicholas sent me immediately.

When Nicholas showed up, he was nice, polite, always smiling, efficient, and fast (whole thing only took 1 hour). He also took the time to explain to me what was wrong and what he did to fix the issue. The final bill came out to be $300 which is a lot cheaper than a quote I got from another vendor ($475).

Nick and Alberto repaired the walls and ceiling within my bathroom as well as areas of an adjoining wall in my kitchen that were damaged by a major leak from the upstairs apartment over the summer. This involved removing the severely damaged areas of my bathroom ceiling, cleaning it out, using the better products to ensure that there would be no mold or mildew, resurfacing the entire area and painting the bathroom. They also had to scrape, plaster and repaint the kitchen walls which adjoin the bathroom. I have lived in this apartment since I bought it 30 years ago. I was vigilant about the work being done. I have dealt with several building contractors over the years and one private painter-plasterer who has passed away. With the exception of the latter, the others were not nearly as careful nor as expert as Nick and Alberto. Nick made sure that all work was done properly. Areas were allowed to set properly and dry out in between stages. This was not always the case with previous building contractors who tended to rush jobs. I realize that there are schedules to be kept, but I noticed that Nick tends to have his other work organized well so that he can attend to other sites while mine dried out and return promptly to complete the next stage. I prefer this; doing something thoroughly always works. Clean up was done efficiently. Communication between us was fine. The subcontractors who came in to resurface my bath tub, were clear in explaining the process, how to care for the area and what to avoid. They arrived promptly and were pleasant to work with as well. This process was done to my standards. I am glad to recommend Nick and those who work well with him.

You know how, when you're about to write a great review of a little known-restaurant, you feel a little worried because you fear you'll never get into the restaurant again? Well, this is like that. I am worried that Nick may never have time for me. In a sea of meh contractors, he is a standout. He comes when you need him. His prices are reasonable. He analyzes a problem and takes care of it. He will turn up for small jobs as well as big ones. Today he fixed the five or six electrical outlets in my home that didn't work, and hadn't worked, for years. (One might not think that burnt electrical outlets constitute an emergency during the Covid crisis, but since one involved the microwave, and I am sheltering in place with perpetually ravenous 18 year old boys, this constituted an emergency) When I am allowed, he will be my go-to for entirely renovating my kitchen. That is, if he still has time for me.

This company is amazing. First of all, their prices are fair. Second of all, they know how to do literally anything, from plumbing to electricity to construction. I just moved into a home and I had several things I needed help with... replacing a garage door, replacing a patio door, showers that were not running hot water, lights that were not turning on, mice popping out of random holes in the house. I called this company on a Saturday night, and Nick came out the next day to give a free estimate of the work requested. I had already had a plumber come out for the showers, that said there was nothing he could do about it, but Nick quickly recognized that the handles were not installed properly, and quickly fixed the issue. In total, with all the work, he came with various company members a total of about 5 times. The work was done with care, professionally, and he explained everything that was needed. They also took appropriate precautions, (masks, staying 6 week apart, minimal people) considering the COVID 19 precautions. Nick genuinely seemed like he cared about the work and doing it well, and they did an excellent job. I would highly recommend this company!
