"Dan has been doing work for us for the past 15 years now. We met him when he was the foreman on the complete tear down and rebuild of our home in Orinda. He was involved in every aspect of that job from laying the foundation to framing, all plumbing and electrical, windows/doors, cabinet and appliance installation, moulding & trims including tile work in the kitchen and all bathrooms. He was the one person on the crew that was with us every day, problem solving and handling every situation that came up with professionalism and excellent expertise in all areas. Since moving back into our home following the remodel, Dan has continued to help us with all maintenance and repairs at our home and always responds with urgency to our needs. He has often come on a weekend or after hours from another job site to take care of us.
Because of our confidence in Dan, we purchased a fixer upper second home which he has helped us to completely remodel in the past year. With Dan's expertise, we were able to do this without the need for an architect and he guided us through every step of the process--working with the town to procure the necessary permits and guiding me with a timeline and "to do" lists to keep our project moving. He is knowledgeable, thorough and efficient in all of his work and knows when to get you involved in the decision-making process.
I have referred Dan to many, many friends who have used his services for everything from minor repairs to very large projects. Every single one of them has thanked me over and over--and in turn referred other friends to him as well. I have seen his business grow over these years and I am so appreciative that he always manages to "squeeze" us in when we need something in either of our homes. He is a rare find in this industry and everyone that I have referred to him feels the same way. I am happy for Dan that he is so busy these days--and that my friends and I have to negotiate with each other to get on his schedule for projects(!) It's been a great thing to see him build his own crew as a general contractor and work to teach others to become "Dans" also. We certainly need more of them!"
