Customer Testimonials

We can’t say enough good things about our latest experience with Old World Quality. It was top notch every step of the way. From our first walk-through with Vinny and his team, the enthusiasm and professionalism was second to none. Raf, our Project Manager, was amazing! He took the time to listen and share with us our options. Raf kept us up to date, made sure every detail was taken care of and came up with great ideas to maximize our space and provide us with a finished product that far exceeded our expectations.

Every person that entered our home, on behalf of Old World Quality, from the carpenters to the electricians, from the plumbers to the painters, was respectful, courteous, and provided an attention to detail that only true craftsman can. From removing their shoes at the front door to tidying up the workspace every evening, the team treated our home as if it was their own. They were trustworthy and engaging, the type of people you would want around your family. Every single person went the extra mile to deliver a quality product.

We have relied on Vinny and the folks at Old World for many projects over the years both small and large. They are available at a moment’s notice to take care of any emergencies that arise.

Old World Quality is truly the best of the best! We would never consider using anyone else for a project in our home. Thanks so much Vinny and Dina!

Tom and Chris Ryan

It was such a pleasure to work with you and all of your crew. The house really became our home over these months of renovations. We couldn't be more thrilled with the finished product. Our deepest thanks to you, and all of the fabulous workmen who made this home a reality.

This is to thank you and your company for the stupendous new kitchen and first floor renovation in our 1954 split level. The remodel is gorgeous and so functional. Mike Vigliotti conceived and executed a brilliant design. We recently hosted a large family gathering, and the reactions to the remodel were off-the-charts-great. Mike Vig is the best, together with his awesome team- Robert, Luis, Patrick, et al. We miss them every day! Even the cat liked them! The job was efficient and so professional- we lived in the house while it was being done and the team was so accommodating and thoughtful.

OWQ has exceeded our expectations every step of the way. Colin is a delight to work with and every person that’s worked on the project / that we’ve met has been professional, friendly and gone above and beyond. We couldn’t be happier. Its no wonder that OWQ maintains such a wonderful reputation. We worked with another contractor in the past, never again! We’re OWQ for life ;)

Adams Family

It is my absolute pleasure to share my experience with Old World Quality Corp.

As a homeowner, I believe our home is an extension of our personalities, priorities and a safe have for our family. It is alive with our shared experiences and life’s occasions and events. Accordingly, I only want the very best when it comes to making home improvements for my family’s home.

In 2001, when I first saw our home, after looking at so many, my heart began to beat a little faster-it was love at first sight. We had moved back to New York after several years in California. Having been raised in Garden City, with so many relatives and friends here, we were home. And “this old house” was to be our “forever home”.

Our’s is a Victorian built in 1908. And while it radiates the intimacy, elegance and charm of the Victorian style, well, a lot of work goes along with the “charm”!

After making several inquiries on who to turn to for updates and restoration to the house, the name “Vinny” kept popping up. Always followed by” he’s the best”…” don’t waste your time or money on anyone else”.

Young people are often advised to “find what you love to do and make a living of it”. Enter the company established by Dina and Vinny Muldoon, Old World Quality Corp. “Quality” is the key word here.

Vinny was the Project Manager for several updates and restoration of our very old house. His enthusiasm for the work was infectious and ideas came so easily to him. He’s like a house “whisperer”. From stunning hard wood floors throughout the house, to masterful marble and tile work, building a hearth and mantle into a rock-solid brick wall, installation of period appropriate doors and hard ware with the finest detail, air conditioning, insulation, plumbing…he knows it all like it is his first language. The results are masterful and look original to the house, as if they were in the house from the year it was built over 100 years ago. For us, the wonderful mix of old and new has come together so beautifully. The house has a timeless quality to it, honoring the integrity of the “old bones”, with highly functioning, modern “new “.

Every person whom OWQ has sent to work here have been consummate, competent professionals with incredible talent and detail for their specific specialty. From OWQ employees to various sub- contractors, each and every one has treated our home and family members with the utmost respect.

Simply put, if Vinny trusts them, I trust them. Period.

As advertised weekly, “there is no job too small”, and they honor that. I never felt pressure to go over budget. On the contrary, Vinny, the Project Manager, was completely up front and realistic about the costs, and was wonderful at guiding us as to which projects were most imminent, and which could be put off. His wisdom and experience as a contractor, a homeowner and family person collectively inform his ideas and translate beautifully into gorgeous results.

One can also feel good about working with Old World Quality Corp., as the family who created the company, Dina and Vinny Muldoon, are constantly giving back to the community in which they reside. Every wintertime I am awe struck by their company’s ad in the local paper, which advertises that they will come to the assistance of any person who may live alone or be infirm, to come and make sure their residence is safe, warm and properly functioning so that person may live safely and comfortably in their home. In addition, on numerous occasions, they have opened their own beautiful home to host enormously successful fund raisers for charitable causes and specifically for local families who are enduring some of life’s most difficult challenges.

The heart of the Muldoon family is reflected in the heart of the premier company they built together, to the benefit of so many in our community and beyond.;

To have Old world Quality corp. execute your home improvements, no matter how big or small, is to make an investment in the value of your home, and the quality of your life style.

My husband, Chris, and I enthusiastically recommend Old World Quality Corp.

Connolly Family

Vinny and Pete and the rest of the Old World Quality Construction team exceeded our expectations in every respect. From the time Vinny took with all of the OWQC subcontractors to develop and submit the most comprehensive and thoughtful (and not the most expensive) of all of the proposals we received, to the practical solutions he and his team offered to unexpected obstacles, to the respect they showed our family and neighbors, we felt we were in good hands at every step of the process. The project was completed on time, on budget and with no surprises or stress, despite interruption from the COVID-19 pandemic.

When we first met with Vinny, he promised the OWQC team and their subcontractors would be the kind of people we would not hesitate to have around our family. In this and every other respect, he was true to his word. Pete Von, who ran the project, is a wonderful person to be around, and every member of our family (especially our dog, Harper!) enjoyed our time with him. Pete had many great suggestions during the process that allowed us to gain space or do something creative with the existing plans. He was a great ally through the project.

After the renovation of our Garden City house was complete, we had a carbon monoxide emergency at our beach house on Super Bowl Sunday morning. Pete and Vinny came immediately to address the issue and make sure the house was safe. They and Joe from All Sons Electric got a replacement boiler installed and running in no time. We had heard Vinny and Pete could be counted on for this type of service, and we are eternally grateful that their reputation is not exaggerated.

We love our home and we would choose OWQC again every time.

Vinny, when we started this whole process I knew you were the best builder around. The things you told me you would do, I could never imagine that my house would turn out as amazing as it is. Kate and I wake up every morning with a smile on our face and go to bed with the same smile. Your team has become almost like family to us, and I cannot thank you enough for building our dream home in our first year of marriage. I fully apologize you couldn’t come over the other week as I was stuck at work with my dad in a fire drill. Kate and I would love to take you and Mrs. Muldoon out to dinner, and we would like to host at our house beforehand so you can check it out! We are the happiest I’ve ever been and it’s all due to you!

Wyremski Family

Thanks for reaching out. We were very pleased with our OWQC experience. Here's some feedback for each of those areas:

Project Manager: Vinnie Jr. was a pleasure to work with. He was incredibly responsive and attentive. Any miscommunications or instances where we had a different understanding of what would be happening were immediately fixed. Vinnie's answer to everything was "No problem, we'll take care of it," which was such a relief. We felt supported the entire time, and we appreciated having a schedule texted to us each week. There were never any surprises; I knew who to expect on any given day, which was nice. When the kitchen sink was leaking one day last week, he had the plumber there in an hour. We really appreciated the high level of customer service that we experienced working with VInnie Jr. We have since recommended OWQC to many people in Rockville Centre. After hearing glowing recommendations from us, and witnessing how our job was conducted, our next-door neighbors enlisted OWQC to do their kitchen renovation in the spring.

Subcontractors/OWQC Employees: I was always impressed with how well-run the OWQC office is. The women who work there are friendly, professional, and efficient. You hear about other people trying to call contractors and not getting a call back for weeks, if ever. I appreciated when we were in the early stages of this job that appointments were made quickly and easily due to the wonderful ladies who work in the office.

We had wonderful experiences with the subcontractors too. Notably, Tiago and his crew were all extremely personable perfectionists. I always felt happy to have them in my house, and I can't imagine using another painter in the future. We were impressed with their thoroughness, and how well they cleaned up after themselves after a day of work.

While I don't think he is a subcontractor, I would be remiss if we didn't give Joe the carpenter a shout out too. Joe takes such pride in his work, which is rare these days. Joe patiently explained his plans to us for molding around the fireplace--he showed me pictures of his own home to help us make a decision. We felt that he truly cared and really wanted us to be happy with the end product.

We also enjoyed working with the recommended vendors, notably FMI and Douglas Kitchens. I've worked with Tina and Patsi before on past projects, and they are the best. I was happy to work with them again. Douglas was great to work with too. Cori, who helped us design the kitchen, was so helpful, and Tom, who installed the cabinets was excellent.

Quality of Workmanship: We were very pleased with the quality of the workmanship on this job. OWQC's reputation when it comes to quality workmanship is why we reached out to Vinny to begin with, and we were not disappointed. Everyone who worked on the job seemed dedicated to upholding that standard.

Overall Service: Exceptional. I touched on the service during the job, but I am impressed with the continued service after the project as well. Figuring out the heat has been a bit of a challenge since certain zones were impacted by the renovation, and on Monday, Joe from All Sons, Brian Egan, Vinnie Jr., and Tony had a meeting of the minds at my house to figure out a solution.

Since the floors were installed when the weather was warm, the boards are cracking and contracting now, and Vinnie assured us Steve would be back in February/March to refinish them.

We have heard many people say, "Once you use Old World for a job, you'll never want to work with another contractor again," and we can see why. The level of service, attention to detail, professionalism, and quality workmanship is unmatched. Thank you to everyone at Old World, from Vinny Sr. on down, for working together to deliver an outstanding end product.

Zyman Family

There are two main reasons to go with Old World: Trust and Quality. Our expectations were more than met, and I am extremely happy with all the work OWQ has done for us. The final project came out great. The house is beautiful, 7 months later everything is still looking great and working the way it is supposed to, and OWQ has been back several times for things like touch up paint, checking in on the final product, or problem solving when there’s new work I’m considering.

I met Vinny when I was considering building from scratch, gut renovating, or simply tailoring a house to our needs. I spoke to several customers, toured Vinny’s house (twice), and got to follow a gut renovation from midway to finished to see OWQ’s work. Customer’s rave about him and there are dozens of horror stories about other builders/contractors. I appreciate most that Vinny got to know my family, talked to us through the entire process, AND he helped me house hunting. There were a few houses that he told me to stay away from even though they would have been huge projects for him. With the house we ended up buying, it was during the early stages of COVID, and we needed his opinion immediately. Even though the house was in Huntington, Vinny was there within 24 hours to do a full walk through with us to assess the house’s quality and to recommend what work was needed. He gave his thumbs up on the house, and were in contract the next day.

In terms of work scope, Vinny came through the house for a few hours with us, listened to everything we wanted, gave us a bunch of things he recommended, and then followed up with a big 3-part list of all work items with estimates. We weren’t pressured to do anything, and the two of us went back and forth a few times to narrow down the work scope. The time and attention always made it feel as if our house was the only thing Vinny had going on (and I know it wasn’t).

Colin, our project manager, has been great, and he felt like part of the family throughout the project. During the main project, we communicated regularly, and there were several things that we had to pivot on or last minute things my wife wanted touched up or changed. None of it was an issue. Our house was ready for us for the move in day and everything was finished in a tight window. He dealt with every issue we threw at him. And Collin has continued working with us after the move in. For both maintenance items and new “problems” with the house, he’s been quick to respond and to get people to help. Of course most of the problems have happened on weekends, and Collin has been great about getting people here anyway for things like small electrical and plumbing issues (not on something OWQ worked on originally).

Everyone treated the house and my family with complete respect. All contractors and subs cleaned up the house when they were done and were extremely cautious not to damage anything in the house. Many were also great with my two young children. I interacted with several subs through the process, and all clearly loved working with Vinny and OWQ because they all recognize the quality for which EVERYTHING is going to be done, and all schedules are kept.

Will you pay more for OWQ than other contractors? Maybe, maybe not. But the quote for every project big and small has been honored, the work was always done on time, it was always done well, and we were not nickeled and dimed once for minor changes to the scope or any rework. Vinny is a man of his word. If you want to work with someone who will look out for you, your family, and your house with NO hassle and you want to minimize stress during renovations, go with OWQ. You will not be disappointed.

My in-laws thought I was overpaying, and they decided to go with another contractor for a tear-down and new build nearby. 12 weeks later, they relisted the property for sale when the contractor they were using was 8 weeks behind schedule and 120% over budget. This was after many many nights of screaming and arguing. Their quote may have been cheaper, but they lost a lot more time and the quote wasn’t honored. They were supposed to be living in a guest house on that property since February. It is now July and they are still living in our basement waiting to close on another house. This disaster was NOT worth MAYBE saving 20-25%, and they ended up losing a lot more money than they would have “saved” had everything gone to plan.

McHugh Family

Our experience with Old World has been terrific. Vinnie and his crew have built a solid reputation of quality work that they stand behind long past the project itself. As homeowners protecting our investment and looking out for our family’s safety, we value Vinnie and Vinnie Jr.‘s honesty about what projects to prioritize in a 100-year-old home. Their input has always been spot on and integrity in this business is something rare so we appreciate it very much. Even when little projects arise, I know we can count on a quick response from Old World and the follow-through to get it done.

York Family

Thank you for your email. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Old World Quality Corporation. I would be happy to answer on behalf of my wife and I in the areas below:

1) Our experience with the project manager was always first class service. We have always had a direct line of communication to the office and the manager. We are always given a heads up on arrival times, updates with the project, or any modifications or revisions if needed.

2) Our experience with subcontractors whether it was a small or large project has been excellent. Our backyard concrete work, and demo and removal of our shed in particular were top notch projects. They were so clean and organized with their work and again we always received updates on the projects in a timely manner.

3) The workmanship was the best around. The craftsmanship that was exhibited and the beauty in the repointing of our patio makes the existing area look brand new. We are so overwhelmingly happy with the look of the back patio.

4) The overall service and communication during the project and after the project is top notch. Again, the ability to have a direct line of communication with Vinnie Muldoon Jr. and the great team he assembles makes our decision to work with them again so easy and absolute.

If you could share our feedback with everyone and anyone you meet, we would greatly appreciate it. We would be happy to speak directly with anyone if they were considering Old World Quality Corporation and let them know the quality care and service they are getting are simply the best around.

Giuffrida Family

Old World Quality is the absolute best. Every business should operate like Old World Quality. Everyone who works for Old World is so nice, professional, organized, trustworthy and hardworking. The communication and quick response to any question/concern is greatly appreciated and unmatched by anyone. We have had quite a few projects completed by Old World...small to large projects. We have been beyond happy. The quality of skill and work is impressive. The staff in the office, Jennifer and Debbie, are always super helpful and follow up. We have loved everyone we have worked with...Vinny, Vinnie Jr, Plumbing-Al and Tony, our built ins-Colin, Chris and Conner, Alan-helped us with a cabinet issue, All Sons Electric. I'm totally blanking on the names of all the guys who replaced our windows and fixed our roof but they, too, were all amazing. We had a roof leak fixed (fingers crossed) by Old World that 4 other companies were unable to do but charged us a lot of money. Any issues I have ever spoken to Vinnie Jr or the project managers was addressed and fixed, literally, in minutes. Old World is respectful of you and your home. They take off their shoes when they come into your house. My house is so clean after Old World completes their work for the day...they wipe everything up, sweep, vacuum, etc. Everyone at Old World goes above and beyond. I always joke that Old World is our fairy Godfather, they make all our dreams come true.

Vlogiantis Family

We have been dealing with Vinny and OWQ for over 10 years. Vinny built our first home and has done work on other properties as well. Vinny from beginning to end is constantly involved on the job, no matter how big or how small. Vinny and team are always professional (shoes in house always off!), always punctual, and thorough on every detail.

Pombar Family

Wanted to write and let you know how happy my husband and I are with old world quality Corp. we used them for a kitchen, family room and mudroom renovation. Right from the beginning, Vinny, Alan and the entire team were beyond professional and helped us every minute along the way. We had heard horror stories of renovations gone wrong, and we knew that we were in the most capable hands with OWQC. They made the entire process not seem overwhelming and Alan was always available to speak with us about any concerns.

Vona Family

I write this letter of recommendation for Old World Quality. My first encounter with Vinny Muldoon was when I built my Garden City home in 2010 from scratch. It was such a remarkable experience that since then Old World Quality has done multiple jobs that included my family’s home and businesses.
