Alumni Builders did an amazing job building and designing our addition. It’s exactly what we wanted and we couldn’t be happier. All workers were on time, professional and polite, and truly did outstanding quality. We’ll be using these guys on a few more house projects/remodels. If you’re looking for a contractor you won’t be disappointed using Alumni! Dan is fantastic at walking you through every step and taking the stress off you’re plate!Oct 16, 2019Verified
Being a first time home buyer is a scary experience- vein a first time home buyer doing a gut renovation is a whole different level! I wanted to make sure I hired the right contractor that understood my vision, was reliable, and had great communication. I met with so many different people but from the initial consultation I knew that Dan at Alumni builders would be able to make my dream a reality. He is very thorough and asked me questions that I did not think of when planning my renovation initially. The process from start to finish was wonderful. I cannot day enough great things about Dan and everyone he had working on my project. Beyond impressed with their communication and assistance any time an issue arose. If you are looking for a contractor look no further. Alumni builders is the best hands down.Apr 28, 2019Verified
Just over a year ago my wife and I bought a new construction home that was built by Alumni Builders. They did an incredible job and had amazing attention to detail, particularly with the finishes in every room. Dan also made himself and his team available during the first year that we were in the house in case we had any problems or ran into any unforeseen issues. It has been a fantastic experience working with Alumni Builders and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new construction home or for a contractor to help with any remodelling projects.Mar 13, 2019
Dan came in to handle our basement project and he was the only contractor that reached out after quoting to make sure we understood the quote. We than discussed options for stair railing options and built in shelves which came out great! Next time I need a home improvement project done I will call Dan!Aug 14, 2018
Dan and his team were very professional, timely, flexible, knowledgeable and reliable. We did a pretty extensive remodel to an addition that was added in the 70's to a bungalow home as well as a full kitchen remodel. Dan made the process as easy as possible for us from the quote to the final inspection. As any obstacles or challenges arose, Dan was extremely prompt and solution-oriented in a way that set as at ease and moved the project forward. He was spot on with his estimates of cost and duration. We will be working with him again to finish the basement.Feb 13, 2019Verified
