It’s well known that your home is not only one of the greatest investments you will ever make it is also your “castle.” As an investment you want every detail to be a value-add.  But you are not building a stock portfolio.  At the same time you want this new structure or addition to be a reflection of your taste, lifestyle, ideas and concepts. For many the weight of every decision concerning this lengthy project is stressful and at times may be overwhelming.  Know that building or adding value to your existing home is well worth the effort and that A. B. Lake Construction Corporation will be there to help transform your vision into reality.

Bringing a house construction project to successful completion doesn’t happen by chance.  Our team is comprised of individuals who respect each others’ abilities and time.  From our decades in the business, we have hand selected our ‘A’ team of sub-contractors.  Their work ethic rivals ours and their dedication to your specifications and respect for your time ensures a positive project outcome.  But we do not expect you to take our word for it…we invite you to view our gallery and read the testimonials of your neighbors and friends.  They have made A. B. Lake Construction one of the oldest and most respected house construction companies in the region.

I was first introduced to Alan in 2005 when my architect contracted him to finish the basement of my veterinary hospital. As with any renovations of old buildings, issues arise, and Alan was always ready with a way in which they could be addressed. He did a terrific job, and he continued to be available to help with repairs on the rest of the office long after the project was over.

A few years later we began to look for a larger site, and Alan was always available to go to the buildings and give advice.

We finally found a building, and Alan and his son Kyle took on the construction project. The project was filled with delays due to capricious building department personnel, but Alan and Kyle handled them, making it possible for me to continue working. When a problem arose, and there were many, Alan already had the solution by the time he mentioned it to me. I never had to worry about the small details that can be so time consuming because it was all handled for me. The end result was a great renovation, and I couldn't have had a better experience. I would recommend them highly to anyone thinking of doing a construction project.

My husband and I did some extensive renovations in our home. We met an AMAZING contractor named Alan Buchberg through our decorator. I wanted to make sure that we were comfortable with his ability and experience because I knew that we would all be spending a lot of time together.

Compatibility was also important to me and Alan and his son Kyle were both easy going, calm and impeccably professional. We expanded and redesigned our kitchen and also expanded and redesigned our master bedroom and bathroom, gutted and redesigned our kids' bathroom, playroom bathroom and gutted an extra bedroom to make a home office. I was very concerned with the size of this project and because I have a “type A” personality, and work full time, I wanted to make sure that all details would be paid attention to. Equally important to me was an open line of communication. If issues came up, in any project, they do, Alan was immediately available and fixed whatever issue arose.

I highly recommend AB Lake Construction and their team of professionals.

Sincerely, Cindi Berger Chairman & CEO PMK/BNC

As an interior designer with over 25 years experience I have worked with many contractors. Finding one that is exceptional is key to the success of my business. AB Lake Construction is that contractor. I know Alan and Kyle will conduct themselves with the highest level of professionalism and that the quality of work will meet the Standards my clients and I expect. It is truly a pleasure to work with them.

I highly recommend AB Lake Construction and their team of professionals.

I have worked as an architect in the greater New York area for over 20 years. I met Alan Buchberg of A.B. Lake Construction in 2010 and have been recommending him steadily since then. We've worked on residential and commercial projects together and they have all turned out beautifully. Alan cares about the projects; pays close attention to details, and works well with me as a team player. I have even used him for projects in my own house. He also has a close working relationship with his subcontractors whom he has been using for many years. He is personable and most importantly, his clients hold him in high regard.
