Who We Are
Celebrating our 55th anniversary this year, McKan Construction was started in 1960 by Henry Kanowitz and Gerry McGlone, a very skilled carpenter and trimmer. “My dad had a wonderful reputation – he leaves a legacy of the best built houses.”
My house in Patchogue was built in 1960 by McKan Construction. Our home has withstood all weather conditions and it has been a comfort to live in such a home for all these years. We are grateful to a fine builder and a good friend.Esther Glass
Howie Kanowitz is the consummate professional and has astounded us on the occasion of many home improvement projects, including a major top to bottom renovation in 2001. His incredible attention to detail and commitment to providing his clients with the best possible service and value are unrivaled in our experience over many years with other general contractors.Bruce Feller
I have had the pleasure of working with McKan Construction for over the last 15 years. They have performed commercial and residential projects for us. Working with Howie has always been a pleasure, and he is extremely honest. McKan Construction has always been professional and the work is always done to the highest standard. I would highly recommend McKan Construction for any home improvement project that you may require.Ira and Rhona Chernoff
We have worked with Howie and McKan Construction for two projects. The second project was an extensive remodel of our kitchen that included removing support pillars and installing new support beams. We were very happy with all phases of construction and are very happy with our new kitchen. There are several things that differentiate Howie from other contractors. First, Howie is always on site with all sub contractors. This means that all work was done properly and that we did not have any worries about strangers being in our home. Second, Howie is meticulously clean. The job site was cleaned every single day. I was never concerned that my children would step on a stray nail. Finally, if there was any down time during the project, Howie and his team completed extra projects. They tightened up handles and knobs, fixed a leak in our basement and organized building materials. Howie takes pride in his work and is also an very nice person. He is a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to use him for any future projects.Angela Biggar
