People understand what we mean when we say we do new construction as well as extensions and kitchen and bathroom remodeling. The decks and patios in Northport that we do are also pretty straightforward.  They difference between the work we do on residential projects and commercial construction in Northport is clear. But, when they see that Foley Contracting does finishing work in Suffolk County, we find that people often have questions. 

Finishing work vs Rough Work

Sometimes it’s helpful to think of finishing work as opposed to what we refer to as rough work.

Rough work is the kind of thing you expect to see on a construction site – like framing, plumbing and electrical work. Rough work is often the kind of thing you won’t see once the project is completed.

Finishing work, on the other hand, is going to be the kinds of things that you will see – and appreciate, which is why you’ll want to be sure to work with a licensed and insured professional, like Tim Foley, a well-respected East Northport contractor. 

Finishing work includes: 

  • Painting
  • Siding 
  • Custom closets
  • Wood trim
  • Metal work
  • Carpeting, tile and wood floors
  • Kitchen and bathroom cabinets, counters and fixtures 
  • Plastering
  • Tile work and more


Never hesitate to ask questions! 

Recently, we came across someone who was asking what finishing work was – after having signed a contract.  The person said he felt pressured to sign and was worried now because he didn’t know what he had just agreed to.  

You should never hesitate to ask questions!
And you should never let someone pressure you into signing a contract!
