Joseph Malcarne comes from a lineage of talented craftsmen. Ever been to Gillette’s Castle in East Haddam, CT? If not, it is a great place to visit. The point is, Joseph’s great-grandfather was responsible for the amazing woodworking in this castle that was once owned by William Gillette. It has some very intriguing carved door latches and locks! At the young age of 13, Joseph had the skill and determination to accomplish almost any project; he built railroad tie walls, brick walks and driveways, stone patios and more. Before long, he managed the projects himself and directed a team of workers several years his senior. Joseph opened Malcarne Contracting on April 26th, 1996. Starting with renovation projects, the company grew to handle increasingly complex projects, including all phases of renovation, additions, gut rehabs, modulars, and new construction. Today, Malcarne Contracting is one of the largest construction companies in the Hudson Valley. Joseph loves working with people and infuses Malcarne Contracting with a work ethic that is tried and true and is what we now think of as “old-fashioned values”. We are the way it used to be… but better!

Thanks to Malcarne Contracting, we were able to have our home remodeled and now it is more functional and more energy efficient. Malcarne Contracting put an entire second floor on our house and insulated it and put in a high efficiency heat pump. They did an amazing job and they said that my energy bills would go down. I doubled the size of my house by adding an entire second floor so I did not believe it was possible to double the size of my house and reduce the utility bills. They finished this summer and now is the middle of winter and my utility bills are about 20% less than last year with twice the house! I defiantly recommend using Malcarne Contracting. Not only will you love the work they do for you but if they do a total energy reduction package for you then you save a lot on the cost to run your home.
From home design to the landscaping in our new place, we choose Malcarne Contracting & Malcarne Tree PHC & Landscape. The team did a fantastic job! We cannot say enough good about them and how helpful they were. We are happy with our decision to hire them. Nevien was amazing to work with and is an amazing architect. The construction crews and landscapes crews were always very polite and professional and were people I would be happy to invite over for dinner. Great crews, great guys and GREAT job! Thank you
My kitchen and bathroom was renovated by Malcarne Contracting and I am extremely happy with the results. Nevien is AMAZING! From the beginning, the team was professional, responsive, and transparent about the cost and timeline for the project. The kitchen tiles turned out beautifully and the team took extra care to ensure a seamless and precise installation. They also made suggestions for additional design elements that enhanced the overall look of the space. The bathroom renovation was equally impressive. The team removed the old fixtures and installed new ones with precision and attention to detail. They also helped me choose the right tiles and finishes to match my aesthetic preferences. I am thrilled with the final results and would definitely use their services again in the future.
We had an extremely large tree in the front of our yard that was getting in the way of our foundation. John and the Malcarne team were extremely helpful, actionable and thorough when it came to discussing the work that actually needed to be done as well as the entire removal process.
Extremely happy with the output and if we ever have any tree needs again – we'll be calling John and his team!
Malcarne HVAC handled the AC and Heat Pump installation in our house. Their team is organized, talented, and competent in their job. Many people said they could not get the equipment for several months. Malcarne got the equipment for us and installed it within 4 weeks, we love them! I recommend this outstanding company to everyone looking for a professional and friendly company.
Before the holiday season, we hired Malcarne Tree PHC & Landscape to design our new side-yard landscaping. Their competent team helped us design the perfect landscape for our house, earning us endless praise from our guests. We will continue to work with their knowledgeable team. They can do everything from the design to install and it was great to only have to work with one company to make that happen!
I recently used the house renovation services of Malcarne Contracting and I love what they did. They completely transformed my kitchen, dining room, living room space by opening all the rooms up and making the one big beautiful room that flowed together. The team was very hard working and they showed up every day. They completed the work when they said they would and they did it for the price that they quoted me. They were also very helpful in suggesting design ideas and helping me choose the best materials for my renovation. I highly recommend this company for any house renovation needs. Their attention to detail and dedication to customer satisfaction truly sets them apart from the competition.
After deciding to add a guest room additional to our home, we reached out to Malcarne Contracting Inc. Their team quickly produced an efficient and stylish design for the construction. After coming up with a design that fit our budget, the team started working on the project and delivered a beautiful space for our guests. There were some challenges that came up during the construction but all concerns were immediately addressed and they were always a pleasure to work with.
The Malcarne Contracting & Malcarne Tree PHC & Landscaping offers the best home renovation and whole property maintenance services we have ever seen. They charge a fair price for what they give us and the quality of their services is top-notch. They exceeded all our expectations and delivered stunning results.
I had my furnace repaired last week and I was extremely impressed with the level of service I received. The technician arrived on time and was very professional and knowledgeable. He quickly diagnosed the issue and explained everything to me in detail, including the different options for repairs. The repair itself was completed with high quality workmanship and I could tell the tech really cared about what he was doing. Overall, I was extremely satisfied with the furnace repair services I received and would highly recommend this company to others. In addition, the cost of the repair was very reasonable, especially considering the high level of service I received. I have already recommended this company to friends and family, and will definitely be using them again in the future for any of my HVAC needs
