How does your service stand out?

We specialize in custom and fine home building and are also willing to take on projects for clients working on a budget. We take time to make sure every client we work with is completely satisfied.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I am most satisfied the last day of a project knowing I am leaving something behind I can be proud of. Whether it's a new home or a rebuilt chimney I smile when I drive past a project that I had worked on. It is very fulfilling and keeps me motivated.

    Dan has been my go-to contractor in the Berkshires for years now. He's efficient, communicates well and has a passion for his work. His pricing is competitive and his consideration and work manners are top notch.

    We recently used D.C. Sullivan Construction to Replace a walkway to our front door and install a chimney cap and have been delighted with the both the process and the results. Dan purposed a few ideas for both the walkway and the chimney cap, which we decided to go with his Bluestone design for both which we couldn't be more pleased with the results. Being in real estate I have worked with a number of other contractors and know when I'm working with someone who knows their business and takes genuine pride in the quality of the work they're doing- and that certainly describes Dan . All the work performed throughout the job was of the highest standard and we enjoyed working with Dan . I also really appreciated how hard he worked towards keeping the project on schedule and 'WITHIN OUR BUDGET'. Remodeling, or any kind of renovation, (whether big or small) can be very stressful- but having Dan as our contractor really helped alleviate the majority of our concerns and I will definitely be calling him for any future renovation needs we may have.

    Sullivan Construction came and gave us an estimate for our project. Their price was not the lowest of all of the estimates we gathered but we are certainly glad we decided to hire Dan. He provided very high quality work and was a joy to have around our home while he worked with us every step of the way throughout the project. he was always willing to answer any questions we had and never rushed us or anything that he did. A month after the addition was finished we were surprised and delighted to receive a telephone call from him asking if we were satisfied or had any concerns. We have since hired Dan for several other projects around our house and he has always responded promptly and provided the same quality service we have come to appreciate. We are very glad to have Dan to call whenever we have a question or something around the house in need of attention. He treats his small jobs with the same importance as his minor projects. Thanks Dan and best wishes.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
A new law is soon to be passed that any contractor in MA with a C.S.L. must take a certain number hours a year of continuing education to keep up with new products and building methods. This is similiar to what other professionals must do to retain their licensing. Personally I am constantly reading woodworking and building magazines, reading newsletters and blogs online, attending seminars on thing such as photo voltaics and new technology available for homes and other structures and always researching projects I work on. I believe the smart person is the one who knows when to ask a question and also knows where and how to obtain information when needed. There are many different certificates available for specialized services and to stay competitive it is important to obtain as many of these as possible. Its also fun to learn new things that interest you and being innovative is something that can make or break a business. It is nice to offer unique service(s) that other contractors do not.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I am a third generation contractor. I grew up as a young boy helping my father on job sites. As I became a young man I realized how much experience I had gained and that I enjoyed following in the footsteps of my father and grandfather. Since I have been dedicated to providing the same quality work I learned and always continuing to learn about new products and building techniques to provide my clients with the best options and final outcome to be proud of.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
References from friends and family are usually a good way to go. Word of mouth is what keeps contractors busy. Always check references!
