"Words cannot express our gratitude of making our home feel like a five star hotel. David has always stood behind his work! Working with Pride Builders has made this such a fun project for me from beginning to end. David's endless talent never ceases to amaze me. Every time we walk into our house it only reinforces that we made the right decision in choosing Pride Builders. We will be forever grateful to you."

"David and his team transformed our dated and unattractive house into a beautiful home that we love. He has creative ideas, finishes things on time and on budget, and his ongoing service is exceptional."

-Jeff and Ann Semmer, Stone Harbor, NJ

"We were fortunate to meet David Kolb and Pride Builders over 17 years ago. In that time, David and his team have transformed our business property on the corner of 83rd and 3rd Avenue in Stone Harbor. The building improved the corner and provided Mack's Pizza of Stone Harbor the perfect place to grow and serve our customers. In addition, the Pride team's vision and professional services have been integral to improving our home.  Neighbors ask every day who built the store and our home and we are delighted to recommend Pride Builders."

-Jodi and Bob Moloney

"Pride Building Associates are at the very top of outstanding when it comes to remodeling and building. We have used David Kolb and his amazingly talented team on three houses and could not be happier. Their knowledge of and ability to navigate the laundry list of laws and permits are incredible. Innovation, keen attention to detail, integrity, and their ability to accurately price projects are just part of why Pride is the best builder/remodeler we've used here or anywhere. They made the building process fun...beginning to end! David and his team are just the best at creating a beautiful home."

-Rick and Teresa Marino

"Our project was far from your typical shore home renovation. Rufwud  Cottage is on the National Historic Register and has been used for the last century without heat, insulation and modern conveniences. Many builders can start with an empty lot and build a beautiful home but it takes a special builder to have a vision for 105 year old quirky home like ours which came with a special set of challenges.  David Kolb and his team are creative and they were very skilled at devising the approach needed to modernize Rufwud while maintaining much of the original character and charm. We could not have found a better match for our project than Pride Builders!"

-Andrew and Deb Castle, Stone Harbor, NJ

"David and his entire team are the very best. I love every project he has done for me, many were done while I was out of town."

-Edie, 90th Street 

"David's extraordinary commitment to superior craftsmanship, quality materials and professional hands-on management have made each one of our construction projects an inspiring and rewarding experience."

-Lisa C., Cape May, NJ

"For us, the greatest thing about working with David’s team at Pride Builders is that they allow us to be involved in the creative process.  If you want a truly “custom” home, David is the perfect person to work with.  From tile, woodwork trim, flooring, paint and all exterior finishes, David takes the time to collaborate with his clients and make ideas turn into reality."

-Jon and Suzy Horn, 112 94th Street; 334 92nd Street

 "We have been working with David Kolb and Pride Builders for about 20 years as we have a "vintage" Stone Harbor house. He and his team have done everything from roofing, siding, decking, chimney, cabana construction, pool renovation as well as renovation of kitchen, powder room, family room, wood flooring/carpet. His team performs our winter closing, spring opening, and maintenance checks, believing that "once a client, always a client."  David's attention to detail, intelligence, professionalism, accountability, and ingenuity set him apart. We can't wait to see what he designs for our next projects - new bunk room/hall bath and a second kitchen renovation!"

-The Kantor's

"We hired David after he was highly recommended to us for our kitchen renovation in Stone Harbor. We were pleased and hired him again the following year to renovate bathrooms, add a master bath, and oversee the construction of a swimming pool and related landscaping. David's experience was critical in helping us retain the original design elements that make our 1908 home special. His suggestions in design and materials were always helpful. Several local business people have sung his praises to us. After two beautiful renovations, both completed on schedule, we highly recommend David to anyone looking for a high-quality, reasonably priced and timely renovations!"

-Susie and Greg Williams, 169 86th Street 

"What do we think about David Kolb and his colleagues at Pride Building Associates? In one word, "extraordinary." At our first meeting when we were floundering in our efforts to build a new beach house, he brought in an architect who was perfect in terms of design, personality, and price. Then Pride built our beach home - it was just what we had hoped for and it was on time and under budget. Throughout the construction process, David provided numerous helpful suggestions about big things and little things (down to recommending bathroom faucets).  And now, for over 10 years, David and Pride have overseen and helped care for our home during storms, floods, and even an earthquake. Did we mention that when Pride built our house it was on time and under budget?"

-Heidi and Marc Yacker, 270 84th Street 

"We have had several projects completed by Pride Builders, including a full kitchen remodel and two bathroom remodels.  David's expertise and vision are  amazing!  The team at Pride are dedicated and professional.  They go above and beyond to satisfy you with every aspect of the project.  I would recommend the Pride team for any project, big or small."

-Frank and Marie Hood, 3 Lakeview Dr., Woodbine 

"We purchased our beach home in Stone Harbor 10 years ago. After the closing, we had a three month deadline to have renovations done prior to the beginning of the rental season. We were told David Kolb of Pride Building was the person to handle this. From the moment we met David, there was an instant comfort level and confidence that he would get the job done. David worked closely with my wife Susan and he delivered a quality and timely job. Being in Commercial Real Estate for 38 years, I deal with contractors on a regular basis. I have never met anyone in that industry with the honesty, quality of work and professionalism of David Kolb.  Susan and I always say that we wish that we had a David Kolb to work with for our other home."

-Dennis Gralla

"At the end of each rental season, we had the Pride Building team come in to repair and maintain our property. Three years ago we decided to stop renting and eliminate one bedroom to make a master bedroom suite and give an update to our kitchen/living area. David had a vision for this project, but he also did a needs assessment - he really listen to what we were looking for and then made suggestions. We worked together to choose finishes (his guidance and design expertise were phenomenal) and he and his team went to work.  We are absolutely thrilled with the outcome. We have an ongoing relationship with Pride Building which is unique and so appreciated. Whether it is a sliding door off track or roof repair after a storm, we know we can continue to count on David and his team to be there for us."

-Susan Gralla 

"As almost new Stone Harbor homeowners in 2007, we were approaching our first major renovation - master bath and powder room. Casually mentioning this intent to friends and neighbors brought one name into the conversation repeatedly: ‘Before you choose a contractor, call David Kolb.  He did our bathroom or he did my friends kitchen, etc.  So, we called and thus began a wonderful working relationship and treasured friendship. We learned, early on, that the artistic genius residing in this young man was best released by five words:  'What do you think, David?' He thinks, the wheels turn, concentration, then the eyes sparkle and ideas pour forth! Our partnership has continued - nine projects in the intervening years  - one pending! Accurate estimates of cost and time management; diligent oversight of all phases of construction; and outstanding craftsmanship by the talented "Pride" team have consistently exceeded expectations.  Our total trust in David Kolb and Pride Building has always been rewarded with delightful results!"
