I held a position on the Board of Directors for six years in our Condo Association and was in charge of the building maintenance. Cusano Construction Company came well recommended and I hired them for replacement of roofs, windows, doors, repairs to the buildings, and cement work. They have completed several additional rooms to our buildings with complete satisfaction and have worked in our association for over twenty years. I have also used Cusano Construction to construct a 12 x 20 room at my residence. It was completed on time, required 19 inspections and all were met by the county inspectors. Using Cusano Construction would be a pleasure to anyone with complete satisfaction.

We are extremely pleased with the exterior paint job you did on our house. It looks better than when it was new nine years ago. Your promptness in getting the job done on schedule is appreciated. We were surprised & pleased with the extra jobs you did washing the windows, pressure cleaning the driveway, cleaning the bugs out of the lamps, etc. These thoughtful gestures certainly added to the overall finished appearance of the job! We would recommend you highly to anyone who wants reliable comprehensive house painting.

In the spring of 2005 our family selected Cusano Construction to add a 900 ft2 addition and new pool cage onto our 35 year old home. We were very pleased with the process and the results. As you may recall, 2005 was a very difficult time for construction in southwest Florida because the hurricanes and real estate boom made materials and, more importantly, skilled workers very difficult to find. Marc and John’s years of construction experience and their long term relationships with their subcontractors enabled the project to move along right on schedule and on budget during this very difficult time. Certainly, we could not have done it without them!
We selected Cusano Construction because I had known Marc for 2 years and after meeting with several contractors we felt that we could trust the Cusanos to treat us like family. Our instincts were correct. They offered us advice throughout the project to help us stay on budget and improve our aging house. They saved us additional money by packaging needed updates onto the changes for the addition. By bundling updates with the addition they significantly cut the inconvenience and cost of what we would have paid to have them done separately in a year or two.
Our addition actually became, “Extreme Makeover Sarasota Edition.” They replaced all our windows, stuccoed the whole house and our ugly old chimney, added siding to cover out of date wood sections, painted the garage, added a new roof, sprayed and painted an interior room, improved our insulation, removed additional overgrown trees, updated old plumbing fixtures and enabled our electrical system to pass modern code. While making our whole house new, John & Marc saved us money because their relationships with suppliers and subcontractors got us better deals than we could have gotten on the open market during this extremely inflationary period. We felt like the Cusanos managed our money like it was their money. Of course, saving money is only important if the work is done right and on time. The Cusanos delivered. In the past, our family had been burned by a low cost handyman, a lousy lawn service and a shady pool guy and we were becoming convinced that there were no honest workers in the area. It was extremely important for us to hire someone we trusted who had strong relationships with experienced craftsmen. Sure enough all of the Cusanos’ subcontractors did professional work and used quality products.
I believe an important part of the high quality outcome was that Marc & John did, assisted in or supervised all of the work and were onsite every day. While sharing horror stories with us, several of our more experienced neighbors commented on how impressed they were that the Cusanos were at our house personally pushing the project forward every day. The final thought I would add about our experience was that one competing contractor said, “I don’t care who you hire but whatever you do, don’t hire your friend because you’ll hate him before the project is over.” I am glad to say that our family and the Cusano family are even closer today than we were before the project began and I would highly recommend them to family and friends but they provided us with the honest advice, dedicated service and quality results we expected.

Finding a good contractor is as important as finding a good doctor. We asked around for recommendations and visited several construction sites. The company we chose was Cusano Construction. From beginning to the end, the professionalism and work quality of John and Marc was excellent. They were always on site and offered many good suggestions along the way. The work area was cleaned and all debris removed daily. They were very good about keeping us informed of every step along the way.
After seeing the impact resistant windows by Simonton that were planned for our room, we decided it was time to upgrade the windows throughout our condo. That was a good decision, because it is much quieter in our home as well as helping conserve the heat and cool inside.
Our Florida room is so beautiful and so well constructed that we love to show it off and also happy to give John and Marc all the credit they deserve. Not only did we find a great construction company, we also are also proud to call them friends.

We were extremely satisfied with our experience with Cusano Construction Company. We had a major addition to our 1950’s home; laundry, bath, game room and 3 car garage. They were honest, dependable, hands-on, and always kept us informed throughout the job. Cusano’s were recommended to us, and we have since confidently recommended them to others looking for contractors. It was a pleasure to deal with a contractor with such integrity.

We Just wanted to express our sincere thanks for the wonderful work that you did on the addition to our home. We had never hired a contractor before and had heard numerous stories from friends about nightmare experiences such as unreliable workmen, delays in concstruction, cost overruns, and poor workmanship. Our experience was the exact opposite, the work was done timely, on budget, and of high quality. Further from our first meeting with you and your son we knew that we were dealing with a company that was going to treat our project like it was for a close family member,.
In fact, by the time the project was done, we felt like we were part of the Cusano family. From the cheerful morning greetings we recieved each day when we left for work or to bring our children to school to the time that was taken explaining to us the work being peformed and the cooperative way any charges and options were discussed, the experience could not have been more pleasant. We are all verty happy with our new additonand have and will recommend CCC to anyone contemplating any renovations to their home.

When we wanted to do some remodeling a few years ago , Mark and John Cusano were recommended to us by our pastor. They were very upfront with details and cost, spending time with us going over all aspects of the job. Unfortunately, we weren’ t able to do as much as we had planned, but the Cusano’s hung in there, giving advice and even referrals. We hired them to replace the 30- year old windows in our home. They were very efficient, and on time, doing quality work. The best part was that Mark and John were like family, and treated us the same. They put the same care into doing our job as they would have for another family member. And I love my windows! No more drafts! I would recommend Cusano Construction to anyone looking to remodel. With their skill, diversity, and honesty, you can’t go wrong!
